#MeToo and The Regular Guy

Like a lot of you, I watched Diane’s Sawyer’s “20/20 Special My Reality,” on this past Friday night and I was tempted to dash off a quick review but thought better of that. The main reason being a question that was asked towards the end of the program. 
And one I’ve heard before whenever the #MeToo Movement is discussed. The question is, “How can I, as a regular guy, protect myself from losing my job because of false #MeToo allegations?”

So, after giving it some thought, I came up with the following questionnaire. If you answer NO to all of the following questions, then you probably won’t get false allegations of sexual harassment thrown at you. But, if you answer even one YES, you might want to rethink your actions or get a lawyer.
1. Do you often use words such as bitch, slut, whore, pro, fat cow, bimbo, or MILF? Is your day-to-day language punctuated with other vulgar or four letter words?
2. Instead of telling a female co-worker that she looks nice and/or that a blouse or skirt looks good on her, you say,” your breast are really high and perky today. Or, “those jeans really make you ass look good.”
3. Do you place your hands on your female co-workers, i.e., giving them unwanted hugs, back rubs, shoulder rubs, or wiping unseen smudges off their faces?
4. Are you having unscheduled/unplanned meetings in backrooms, cleaning closets, supply rooms, or cars?
5. Are you asking for sexual favors in return for raises, promotions, a better schedule, or time off?
6. Do you ‘punish’ uncooperative females by forcing them to work someone else’s hours as in forced overtime?
7. Do you rattle the change in your pocket when your female coworkers walk by? Or pull out your money and count it in front of her?
If you’re a regular guy doing any of the things above, then you have reason to fear #MeToo.

Ironic?

“Too bad about Matt Lauer,” she said through crocodile tears.

Seriously though, I agree with Sara Haines’ comment on The View, this morning, about why she stopped watching The Today Show.  Because I did also.  I switched over to Good Morning America and then, of course, to The View.   Continue reading

Denial Letter #MeToo

Before I write anything else, let me say that I am NOT in Church this Sunday morning because of The Stalkers, who may be slightly quieter than they usually are, but are still very much free and out and about on the streets of Maywood, Illinois. Continue reading

Devil’s Advocate – The Bathroom Bill

If permitted, I would like, just this once, to speak for the other side.  You know the side, the ones who are always being told ‘not to say, feel, or thing anything that is not politically correct’, to ‘put up and shut, or ‘be an adult’, or ‘stop letting your petty fears get in the say of progress’.  That side.

I started hearing about the Bathroom Bill a few days ago and was intrigued.  Mostly, because if you’ve read my other blog, mystalkingblog, you know that I’m a victim of stalking and that the people stalking me viciously harangue me every time I go to use the bathroom.  And I’m neither Gay or Transsexual.

What I’d like to do with the post is give Transsexuals some insight into the everyday common heterosexual mind.

First off, let me say that from my point of view, the Transsexual Community is trying to move faster than society’s notion of what is right or wrong.  We are only now beginning to accept Gays as equals and normals into our work places, Churches, and homes.  And just when we are coming to grips with the idea that, yes, people can be born Gay, you’re asking us to take another detour off normal.

And for most of us, that detour is really hard to take.  Mostly because ninety percent of us ‘normals’ don’t like what we see in the mirror when we look at ourselves.

Just ask the fat girl who looks in the mirror and wants to see a thin girl.  And don’t you think for a second that she doesn’t look into that mirror and feels with her whole soul that she was born to be THIN!.  Should she call herself a Transskinny and walk around in clothes to small for her?

And what about people born Black but feel that they are a White person in a Black person’s body. Should they call themselves Transracial.  And don’t say it doesn’t happen.  Just a year or so ago, we as a nation were all upset and talking about the White woman who said she felt she was a Black person born in a White person’s body and went so far as to become the president of the Spokane, Washington Chapter of the NAACP.  And we were ALL commenting on how ridiculous that sounded.

                                                      Rachel Dolezal

Now, as far as The Bathroom Bill goes, the first image that popped into my head was that of a big tall hairy guy in a dress.  I was not thinking pervert or child rapist or anything like that.  But the image of a man in a dress was the first thing that came to my mind.  And I’m sure it’s the same for most Americans.

What I’m trying to say here is that I don’t think that you’ve done enough PR work to get most of the country on your side.

And from one Transracial (I identify as an upper class very wealthy white woman) Transskinny (a sleek size 8) who has learned to love her body (Black and a size 24) the way it is, good luck to you on your journey to the bathroom.

Until then, most of the country would appreciate it if you’d use the bathroom for the gender you physically are until after you’ve completed your gender reassignment surgery.  And for God’s sake get a better spokesperson than Caitlin Jenner.

Happy Valentine Day – Fifty Shades of Grey

 

Tonight is a big night. It’s Valentine Day and the premier of the movie ‘Fifty Shades of Grey.’
As a writer, I am beyond green with envy over the success of E. L. James’ novel by the same name.

 

So much so, that in my last novel, ‘One Three Thirteen – Master of the Day of Judgment,’ I actually wrote some sex scenes, which I didn’t do in my novel ‘Ruby Sanders’ (lots of complaints about that). It seems sex sells. And to be a top selling author these days, you almost certainly have to include it.

But when I was asked whether or not, I’d go see the movie, my resounding answer was NO.

No, because I know what it’s like to be stalked and it’s anything but sexually exciting.

And secondly, because if a guy ever beat my butt thinking that would make me hot, he’d have a real surprise coming. The next day I’d be waiting outside his house or apartment, and when I got the chance, I’d run over him with my car. I’d stop long enough to get out and ask, “Did that get your juices going, honey? If not, I can back up.”
