Cleaning House

Shhhhh
The first event was a shock, but it became a misty "Oh, yeah, I remember that" over time.

The second event led to being fired, after many snickers from opposing industries, and after lots of money, it faded. It helped that he died.

Then a third event appears, but is now, more or less, run-of-the-mill. Then there was a flood, which is comparable to opening a closet door and all hidden stuff pours out. How many events truly are in process will never be known.

Sexual harassment appears to be rampant. It isn't so much as rampant, but is a spotlight on a heaped and rotting garbage dump already filled, but not found.

AND, then there is Harvey Weinstein, a powerful Hollywood mogul. He seemed untouchable, on a pedestal to be worshipped.  He was also to be feared. His closet was full with generations of evil and of women who were forever traumatized.



YouTube, Tom Hanks comments on Weinstein and sexual harassment

This is nothing new.  Sexual harassment has always been a sewer in a workplace with females and males alike suffering silently, fearing repercussions.  Aggressive and intimidating behavior comes from one in power, one able to get away with it. 

Maybe now, the toilet can be flushed and then Roto-Rooter will be called to clean out the lines.

    But firmly believe that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    1. How many centuries has sexual harrassment been part of community secrets?
      Since community began?

  2. Might take many flushing to get rid of the crap.

    1. Women and men will, hopefully, have the courage to speak out. These revelations should shock employers and strike fear in hearts of offenders.

  3. Better have a good plunger on hand, as there is a lot of crap to flush.

  4. I think it is what is making headlines and like other big stories, the awareness that it is bringing will be forgotten next year. Nothing will change. Those who possess power will use it anyway they can and those without power will be their victims.
    Like most women, #Metoo.

    1. My hope is that these shocking revelations will make companies realize their culpability in allowing these to happen. Employees absolutely must have the rights to report abuses to HR and demand action. To see how this horror from Weinstein happened should wake up every industry, make them fly right and sit up straight.

  5. It's one of those things that won't go away until we're ready to deal with it. I think we're getting closer, but we're not quite there yet.

    1. It will take a united voice of the victims and be always in front of the line when it comes to injustices.

  6. This particular toilet may get flushed and cleaned, but how many others are out there? People need to speak up and speak out.

    1. Courage is hard to rustle up by oneself. It takes a group of victims to stand up together.

    1. I'm happy with being human knowing that God made me and has a purpose for my life. Other humans who are responsible for sewers must change and recognize this for themselves.

  8. Alas, as you say 'This is nothing new.  Sexual harassment has always been a sewer in a workplace with females and males alike suffering silently, fearing repercussions.'

    Perhaps there is a slim chance that united voices may just be able to change this ...

    All the best Jan

    1. I hope outrage continues to pour out. I hope power people listen.

  9. I think there are some interesting times ahead in the workplace and society in general. As though it all weren't interesting enough already. Some of the old science fiction films might have had it right in depicting a society that is homogeneous.

    Those pointing fingers might want to look into their own closets.

    1. That will happen, I am sure. I just hope it does not turn into a witch hunt.

  10. I've always liked Tom Hanks as an actor. Seems like he's a nice guy in real life too, which is awesome. I've never heard anything bad about him. This whole thing with Weinstein is mind-blowing. How could it go on for so long? How could he think it was okay? How in the world could he have been married??? How many women were hurt... it's beyond scandalous. It's reprehensive sewer garbage, just like you noted. Hurrah someone finally spoke up and it got the ball rolling. Not just for him, but for others like him as well.

    1. There is a recording that really blew this whole thing open. It may be that police were investigating this. I don't know.

  11. I think the fact that we're all speaking frankly about it, while uncomfortable for many, feels like a step in the right direction.
