Article: Another Campaigning Misogynist Jokes about #SexualHarassment | OpEdNews
According to Reis Thebault in the WaPO, “A South Carolina congressman kicked off an election debate Thursday with a joke — which got a few laughs inside the room, but drew condemnation from observers across the state and country who didn’t find it funny at all. ‘Did y’all hear this latest late-breaking news on the Kavanaugh hearings?’ Rep. Ralph Norman (R) asked the audience at a Kiwanis Club in Rock Hill, S.C., referring to the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh. ‘Ruth Bader Ginsburg came out saying she was groped by Abraham Lincoln.'”
Thebault notes, “Norman’s off-color attempt at humor drew swift criticism, and many felt the congressman was making light of women who come forward to talk about their experience with sexual violence.”
AGR – Bottom line, it is NOT OK to joke about sexual harassment, sexual assault or rape. Moms and dad’s; teach your children that.
