surrounding these new allegations they missed the other half of that conversation, the person laughing, smiling, cussing and disparaging women right along with him during the 2005 video kick starting our increased scrutiny into his womanizing, possibly sexually predatory lifestyle. The “normal” guy who is not a celebrity, who is not a billionaire, who seems to be enjoying their ‘locker room’ banter, ‘bad boy’ talk as much as the man himself, Billy Bush. Billy Bush who when Donald Trump describes making a move on his co-worker Nancy; Nancy being Nancy O’Dell, not singularly raunchy in his language saying he tried to f*ck her, he moved on her like a b*tch, but admitting to doing so while knowing full well she was married; doesn’t hesitate, doesn’t think, doesn’t utter any indications of shock, he just calls it huge news. Tellingly noted from the story all Ms. O’Dell wanted was information on good quality furniture, probably mentioned in casual conversation where he then offered to take her shopping because he thought her hot, she was then subjected to a proposition for sex, a relationship, and it doesn’t stick out to Mr. Bush as glaringly inappropriate, it doesn’t cause a gasp or a pause, instead the opposite, a laugh? From the normal person who enjoys about as much notoriety as local news anchors, remembering, though yes, Access Hollywood is an entertainment television show dishing on all the stars, it is still a place of work demanding professionalism….Jaw droppingly horrible is what happens when they get off Access Hollywood’s bus, where he plays a perverted wingman to Donald Trump and tries to cajole the pretty actress into hugging Trump then himself, also married 7 years at the time, merely to touch, to get close to a woman they think is hot. Trump elaborating to now obvious rolling cameras, Melania said this was ok; sure if it had amounted to a simple hug, graciously indulging a fan, exhibiting the kind of sociability celebrities often do, is expected of them, but again based on contexts of the previously held conversation, no one thinks so. Yes Billy Bush was forced to issue an apology upon the video’s airing during which he offered little excuse, unlike presidential nominee Donald Trump, other than he was younger then, calling his words stupid, facing suspension, followed by termination from his hosting job on Today, yet to understand how important the issue is for women, you have to equally understand how rare that is….Sadly when those alleged misbehaviors, accusations involve sex, well look how long it took people like Whoopi Goldberg to acknowledge Bill Cosby was probably guilty…Simultaneously reinforcing sentiments like whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, whatever happens in Hollywood happens in Hollywood, when you reach stardom you’re insulated from ‘little things’ like prosecution for sexual misconduct, sexual assault and rape are the stories coming out of the industry where women have been told by attorneys at law possessing a legal, ethical obligation they don’t have a case. Less on legal merits and more on their personal belief, or not, of the victim compared to who the accuser is… . How uncharacteristic it is to see a Roger Ailes be removed from his powerful position as it is for accusers to be silenced via money, intimidation, career demolishment, how long things at Fox remained Ailes’ personal locker room, exemplifying the worst of locker rooms according to one article; the outraging reality there may be more than a little truth to Billy Bush’s lawyer’s defense for his client he would face termination if he had stood up to Trump, seeing Roger Ailes’ Fox New before charges became public, independent investigators were brought in….it’s the ridiculous excuses used by Trump defenders largely members of the general public not political operatives, campaign surrogates to discredit an approaching double digit number of women coming forward and telling their stories, echoed and accepted by the larger deciding, voting public at minimum. Wildest one stating first class airplane seats didn’t have moveable armrests, retractable armrests in the 80’s…Likewise she’s ‘lying’ because she says he was like an octopus, it was like he had 6 arms or something, his hands were everywhere, but everybody knows octopus have 8 arms—case dismissed…Network legal analysts impressed with Summer Zervos’ attention to detail, imitating his voice, the way he spoke to her that night enhancing believability… When we literally have to ask are women people as opposed to sex objects, property, things, entities that exist solely for men’s sexual fantasies, sexual pleasure, sadly where we clearly are throughout some parts of society in America, in a place called the free world…It’s Nancy O’Dell, who despite her public figure job is a human being, wife and mother, having to take time during her current anchoring position at Entertainment Tonight to address what Trump said about her; humiliating conversations she had to have with her husband and children before they heard/saw that video on the news or internet, happening because she reported to work on that day, happily accepted an offer to look at furniture from Donald Trump who has built and furnished how many lavish, top of the line hotels. We have a therapist for Andrea Tantaros, once Fox News host, backing up her lawsuit claims about Ailes’ behavior; stopping momentarily to digest her boss, Roger Ailes’, actions, persistent, constant sexual harassment sent this woman into therapy, according to her suit she was demoted, finally fired because she would not sleep with said boss. Knowing this medical, psychological professional came forward on her own, no prompting from her patient, no pleadings to substantiate her accusations…Gretchen Carlson who filed the first publicly known lawsuit against Fox News, Ailes, predating Tantaros, and won just revealed to Saon.com her contract kept her at Fox; question being are we surprised taking stock of morals clauses and dictates employees in any job past minimum wage are subjected to, things employers think they hold rights to control, benign own time activities suddenly off limits. And while someone is putting together pieces to turn Ailes’ rise, subsequent fall into a mini-series, Carlson is testifying to congress, examining forced arbitration practices, about her contract, the forced arbitration she legally had to fight, that would have kept her harassment case out of court. Commenting to Time magazine she doesn’t think human resources departments are equipped to handle sex harassment, corporations training courses are making a difference despite millions spent…Natasha Stoynoff was just doing her job during what happened, Summer Zervos didn’t come to his hotel seeking him out for a tryst, a rendezvous but in hopes of working with Trump, learning from Trump the business man, excited to work for him, meeting held in a room at a hotel he owns less weird and red flag inducing because he owned it…. . Khloe Kardashian at least has additional options, choices; ordinary people, non-celebrities looking for their next venture, aren’t always so lucky. Countering Alex Jones who in part said “it’s not sexual assault if women are throwing themselves at you;” it very well could be when women are told to go up to him, fawn all over him after appearing randomly in their dressing room, if they are led to believe it increases their chances of winning or is even a prerequisite for staying in the pageant. Is very much so understanding at least some pull behind participating in Miss USA, Miss Teen USA and Miss Universe, the 3 branched pageant sphere Trump owned and ran for 2 decades is scholarships winners receive to the New York film academy, modeling portfolios, a chance to travel and talk about social issues as a goodwill ambassador. And these incidents don’t merely happen to people seeking employment in Hollywood, to get their faces on television anchoring national, local news, journalistic careers following celebrities if they can’t be one; echoing domestic violence they happen to ordinary citizens daily in the most unlikely of places. Roughly 5 years ago an exposé was done prompted by teens describing sex acts demanded by their managers at McDonald’s, Starbucks and Taco Bell; teens who thought they needed to give in to those demands to keep their job they depended on to live, help pay for school, help supporting their family, to get a good start in the employment world build a résumé. 1 in 3 working teens possessing standard beginner, fast food, minimum wage, retail jobs reported sexual advances via adult supervisors; McDonald’s fellow employees weren’t surprised stating “don’t take it personal that’s how he is with every girl.” Taco Bell’s errant, pervy manager impregnated one teen working all of 2 months and attacked another her first day. Some may remember the phone scam where mangers are called by a person impersonating police and told to do sex acts on teen female employees. Anyone tempted to think that was then, things have changed because of such cases, there’s the Brooklyn case, 6 months old, were a teen girl interviewing for a high profile law firm receptionist position was coerced into stripping and forced into having sex; getting the job, on her second day is told she needed an STD test to keep her employment position, never returning, instead filing a lawsuit. This is what it’s like being a teen and stepping into the world of work in 2010, 2016, not 1960; stories like theirs why the Trump family got such backlash for their approach to workplace sexual harassment, ideas women can suddenly pull up stakes from steady income jobs, they should be the ones forced to leave (not to put up with poor treatment, taking responsibility for how they handle it) when others are doing wrong…Horrifying how early it starts for young girls growing into women…dismissive, denying reactions, demeaning responses spawning several social media memes #NotOkay, a magazine writer’s tweet me your first assaults. Going first, telling her own stunning encounter story “old man on city bus grabs my p**sy and smiles at me, I’m 12.”…Kate Spencer…Making a list of: “all the times I’ve been touched, followed, hollered at, screamed at, threatened and chased by men, all the penises I’ve been shown without giving permission,” contemplating adding that list to her Salon article seeing another fellow woman recently do the same, finding it empowering plus depressing to read. Being pulled behind buildings, flashed, seeing a man jerk of while your kayaking with friends, sent harassing e-mails, phone calls, threats to come to her house by a student met at a young leaders conference only to have police “look at her like she was crazy;” how much is one woman supposed to endure, why is life in western civilization this kind of endurance test?… What Donald Trump, his supporters, his defenders and his shoulder shrugging apathetic voters don’t understand is, it isn’t just talk, talk like this leads inevitably to action, action being the rape, sexual assault, sexual battery of women leaving lasting scars on them and the country.
