The Roots of the Predatory Male in the 21th Century?

J R F Park logo

 

The consensus today seems to be in both the liberal and conservative communities that all American males in their youth were/are sexual predators and there seems to be evidence to support that.

This is somewhat confusing to many representatives of the senior population.
They remember the interaction of the sexes quite differently.

Many tell us that in their youth the sexually predatory male was largely unknown in what passed as “polite” society.

Certainly not in high school and not even in college for the most part throughout the 60’s ( though one senior citizen reports there were incidents involving the male teaching staff and female students that generated a certain amount of conversation ).

Historians may at some point come to ask how much easy access to birth control and abortion had to do with the apparent change in male attitudes resulting in what we started to see in the 1970’s and beyond

Back in “the day” for many older Americans there was a real fear of pregnancy among the boys and girls and it was the rare boy or girl that didn’t show great restraint because of that.

There are always exceptions but they were the “bad” boys and “bad”  girls from the “wrong side of the tracks” living out on the “Pike” as they called it.

This would be an interesting angle for some credible researcher or institution to pursue given the realities of the world today, though it would not be a study that can be conducted without condemnation from some elements of society.

The MeToo movement is in danger of jumping the shark

According to their social media pages, this is what the liberal community would have us believe
“All we need to know is that the dude is white, the dude is male, the dude is a conservative and a female made the accusation of sexual abuse.
It does not matter if Kavanaugh is guilty or not, it is incumbent upon Society to send a message that white males of a certain age will not be tolerated in political or for that matter public life.
That message must be sent loud and clear”.

Of course those marching orders only apply to men in public life of a conservative nature.

We all heard for example how the members of the liberal community today are all demanding we give Al Franken a pass for his sexual appetites.

And then we have that attorney general candidate from a certain state who happens to be a mover and shaker in the DNC and the movement remains strangely silent about him even though he is accused of doing something akin to what Kavanaugh is accused of and in his case some say, unlike the SCOTUS nominee, there might be evidence that dude actually committed the crime.

That kind of obvious double standard and hypocrisy would not help ANY social movement impress fair minded people.

Of course so far this campaign has been very effective when it comes to filling the tent with the “true believers” but the danger for MeToo is that sooner or later they may go an accusation too far and the reasonable and decent people of America may start to see the movement as one without credibility or honor as we have seen happen to so many movements so many times before.

Dianne Feinstein has got them by the balls and Donald J. Trump knows it

Dianne knows the tactic of delaying the vote on Judge Kavanaugh will be the salvation of America and all it stands for.

Her battle plan is clearly to draw this out as long as possible, hopefully beyond  the midterms.

It would be a tactical error for the woman to testify now especially since it may ultimately turn out that Kavanaugh was innocent of her  charges.

After all, Kavanaugh’s accuser has presented no evidence to back her play and reasonable observers can surmise  she has none to present.

Of course what that the GOP SHOULD do in my estimation is to simply give the woman her hearing, listen politely to what she has to say,  let her have her time in the spotlight and get on with the damn vote.

But their blood is up and these tired old men will not do that, as correct as it might be from a tactical stand-point.

Right now Dianne Feinstein and the woman are playing this exactly right and they are playing it brilliantly.
