Holy crap, he grabbed a woman's thigh!!!
Sure, it's not at all a gentleman thing to do, and it certainly is very disrespectful, especially in a work context, but let's put things into proper
perspective and proportions here.
Trigger warning!!! I have no doubt that Jesse Jackson has been confronted with women of the type that actually welcomed such behaviour from him. She
may have appeared that type to him, and he read her wrong during a weak moment. A very embarrassing mistake, but hardly the kind of "crime" to justify
his whole life being flushed down the drain by media exposure over it, no? Tons of long-term loving relationships were started by confident men
walking up to a woman and flat-out kissing her on the mouth, and vice versa.
Years ago, I had a woman sitting next to me in a pub put her tongue in my ear, and I hadn't even given her the slightest bit of attention. It has
never crossed my mind that this woman deserved to be brutally punished for that. Some people are just very sexual and impulsive. Should I go on
Facebook now and tell the whole world about what she did years ago? If I did, it would say more about me than about her.
People really need to get a grip. This all started with the Harvey Weinstein scandal, which in no way compares with what Jesse Jackson is being
accused of here.
The woman in this story starts out by saying that Jackson "scanned her entire body", as if that is a crime in and of itself... OMG!!! Guess what lady,
that's what men (and dare I say women!) do. Granted, usually less conspicuously, but if that is offensive to you, you should forever wear a cardboard
box when you leave your house.
