In a previous post, I noted that men should have some idea that something is up with sexual harassment at work. I got some pushback on that. Now I’m reading about George H. W. Bush groping multiple women while making a joke about it. How many Secret Service agents heard his David-cop-a-feel joke and said nothing? How many other people were at those photo ops and didn’t say anything? The women’s colleagues, Bush’s people, photographers, other people in the area.
He said it out loud, in public, multiple time. People knew.
