I found this funny and painfully all too often accurate Saturday Night Live skit with New England Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady: “Sexual Harrassment and You”:
Whenever the definition of a crime depends completely on the subjectivity of its supposed victims, there will be inconsistency and injustice in the law. Yet, sexual harrassment lawsuits and other leftist incursions into Americans’ daily lives have have thrown out good Anglo-American legal sense and tradition to create an environment of fear, uncertainty, and institutional cowardice. It is especially mad to base law on the vanity, pride, and irrational sexual impulses of women, which is the real result of sexual harrassment laws. What morons came up with such foolishness? Would it not be better to draft legislation that puts reasonable parameters on allowable actions? Of course, one would need a reasonable population with reasonable judges to handle such law, and perhaps we Americans no longer can afford those luxuries.
I wonder if our present predicament was truly the aim behind such laws, or are the idiotic consequences simply the result of muddleheaded leftist thinking? I always want to know which way to view the enemy: through conspiracy theory or with contempt?
