Hey 3.5 readers.
BQB here. I heard something on the radio yesterday and I think it went virtually unnoticed because there was so much else going on in the news.
It was reported that over the past, how many years exactly escapes me, Congress has paid out $15 million in sexual harassment claims. This appears to be bipartisan. Republicans and Democrats alike have a hard time not being gropey gropey.
Sigh. Look dudes. You got out there, you made some fancy speeches, you convinced people in your district you were worth something, you’ve been selected for a powerful club few ever know…I don’t care how old are ugly or disgusting you may look, if you are not able to be like the rest of us and just find a woman who you share a mutually attraction with and politely chat her up, get her number and go out on some dates and slowly and surely convince her your worth doing the hibbitty dibbitty with, then you are not worthy of being a Congressman.
“I’d better grab that ass and hope she doesn’t say something because an unwanted ass grab is the best I can do,” does not speak well of you, your self-confidence and all around means you should step down.
Seriously. I don’t care how disgusting you are. Most of the non-Congressional world is able to obtain consensual sex, so if you can’t obtain consensual sex with the added bonus of being able to say, “Hey baby I’m a Congressman” then you suck. You just really suck and should go stand in the corner and think about what you’ve done.
Oh and also there’s the obvious – women should be able to work for Congress without unwanted hands on their lady parts and 15 million – those are our tax dollars. It seems obvious many of these dudes do this shit because they know Congress will bail them out. Perhaps there needs to be a law that if you pull out your junk in front of a staff member you have to pay the settlement out of your own money. That will cause many zippers to zip up quickly, no doubt.
