With monotonous regularity, the print and broadcasting news outlets across the UK are leading with allegations of sexual harassment of women. Today’s news broadcasts and newspapers are no exception, devoting air-time and front pages to publishing this latest scandal
Seems there’s hardly a decent male anywhere to be found. The presumption now is, clearly, “guilty until proven innocent” – that’s becoming more and more clear. For a touch of balance, check out the entirely false allegation made against Tucker Carlson, popular American broadcaster, whose entire life and career was almost destroyed by a woman he’d never even met.
Has the feminist movement gone too far? Are radical feminists, in fact, completely irrational women, driven by a hatred of men and masculinity? Why are there apparently no women in the media industry speaking out against radical feminism? Female news anchors interviewing (the very few) women who signal some reservations about the current frenzy, react quickly and with annoyance, as if they want the allegations to be true. What’s going on – should men be presumed guilty until proven innocent? If so, does that apply across the board to all crimes, or merely to allegations of a sexual nature?
