More on Trump & sexual harassment…

This is the latest that I’ve seen on the Trump/sexual harassment topic:
https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-ivanka-sexual-harassment-000000641.html

It’s brought the subject out into the light, which is always good (keeping it hidden only helps the harassers).

In case my Comment gets buried under a bunch of others, I posted, “‘Ol Trumper is WAY out of his depth with this topic. He is NOT an expert on sexual harassment. I am – I’ve written an e-book, I’ve given seminars on the topic, and have an online community for it (www dot booklocker dot com/books/4397 dot html and sexualharassment101 dot wordpress dot com/).

So, for the record, Don, not every woman who’s sexually harassed CAN just quit. It’s a luxury, if you can do that. (We’re not all rich, like you) Although, if the harassment includes molestation, quitting could make the difference between being harassed or being raped.

And, as for Ailes, being a very, very good person – I’d have to beg to differ, if the women accusing him are right. Very, very good people don’t treat others like that. Would you say that Cosby is a very, very good person? Some of what he did was sexual harassment (promising to help women’s careers if…[you fill in the blank]), and some was just all out serial rape.

You’d better stick to making money, Don, and let me handle the topic of sexual harassment. It’s in my wheelhouse.”

My Letter to the Editor of the New York Daily News: voicers@nydailynews.com 8/2/16,

Re: Eric Trump says Ivanka is too ‘powerful’ to put up with workplace sexual harassment   by Laura Bult

Dear Editor:

As an expert on sexual harassment, as evidenced by my e-book and the seminars I’ve taught on the subject, may I just say NO ONE IS TOO STRONG OR TOO OLD OR TOO YOUNG OR TOO SKINNY OR TOO FAT OR TOO PRETTY OR TOO UGLY OR TOO ANYTHING TO GET SEXUALLY HARASSED. Who is this idiot? Oh, a Trump. ‘Nuff said.
He (and everyone else) needs to read my e-book and visit my online community: http://www.booklocker.com/books/4397.html and https://sexualharassment101.wordpress.com/. Empowerment comes with knowledge.

I love it

If I haven’t mentioned it on this site (I have in my e-book), learning self defense is one of the most important things a woman can do for herself. You never know when you might be harassed, groped, raped, etc. – sometimes even in public! I have. (Harassed and groped in public, more than once)

I saw this clip on FB and thought it was great.  http://www.getitfree.us/blog/article/Videos-woman-beats-up-man-who-harasses-her-in-the-elevator?utm_medium=social&utm_source=Facebook-Timeline&utm_campaign=Shared&utm_content=ViralVideo

Learn from her. She, very wisely, took the time and effort to find out how to protect herself. She was able to walk away from what could have potentially been a very bad situation, as a result. DO learn how to protect yourself. Don’t become a statistic. You don’t have to. (And, don’t forget – never get into an elevator if no one else is in it but a man, alone. Also, if you’re alone in an elevator, and it stops at a floor where a lone man is waiting to enter, get out of the elevator and take another one.  PROTECT yourself)

Hi, again –

I haven’t been here in a while – just got busy again. Trying to find work (writing, editing, graphics, etc.), dealing with a lawsuit (got to fight for those rights!), and various other things. Ah, well…I’ll be here more in April –

I saw this on FB and had to include it here: https://www.facebook.com/theglobeandmail/videos/10153998154373904/?fref=nf.

Not reporting a harasser or rapist just protects them, and keeps the system weak. We have to DEMAND justice, even if the system seems uncaring. We have human rights – one of which is not to be attacked. It’s up to us to force the police, the courts, et. al., to take our situation seriously and DO THEIR JOBS. (If it was their wives, mothers, daughters, sisters, etc., who’d been harassed/raped, they wouldn’t just blow it off) Lawyers can (sometimes) help. Amassing people and marching can help. There are options. Make a fuss! It’s in our best interests to DO WHATEVER WE CAN! KEEP FIGHTING THE FIGHT!!!
