My #metoo moment
At the time I thought. That is my self esteem raised several notches. To be found irresistibly attractive by such a beautiful woman who couldn’t help herself without ‘getting a piece of the Brel’ left me ‘dazed and confused for so long its not true.’ I never saw her again, but I never forgot that moment. And its legacy was positive. I still think of her to this day. As one of many great musicians I had the great pleasure of meeting. Our lives intersected for one brief moment and it was a positive. My conclusion is. We should not overthink what constitutes sexual impropriety in the conduct of others. My story is between me and her. I am sure she was in no way abusing her position as being ‘desirable’ to any man between the age of 18 and 80. She was living in the moment. And most instances of sexual attractions happen in that same way. Spontaneous in the moment decisions. That is fine. When it is pre-meditated. When one can say ‘I like to grab pussy without any foreplay or consent’ then I say that is a different thing. That is rape. There is a forethought to it. Not a spontaneous impulsive misinterpreted flirtatiousness.
My point in all of this is. So much interest in Harveys dick – when Hollywood casting couch is behind just about every movie ever made – down to Louis CK having to lose his career because he consensually partook in a safe sex option that did not arrogantly presume his celebrity status was the only reason for agreement. Down to a whole spree of small change that happened 30 years ago.
Sexual mores are defined by the age we live in. The age we live in elected a man based on his own word as a serial rapist. So anyone who moans about sexual impropriety from Harvey to Kevin (A fine actor who should not have lost his career over this) to Louis CK, is a hypocrite if they do not start every single expression of outrage with the Pussy Grabber in chief.
