If you were to consume any national American media outlets and sites, one could come to the conclusion that Republicans are THE problem when it comes to sexual abuse in the United States, especially ONE Republican in particular….
Conversely, we’re also being told that sexual assault is a nonpartisan scourge.
Now finally sexual harassment and abuse are no longer being seen (when seen at all) as a problem of individual behavior but as a systemic issue that pervades all workplaces and social encounters, not limited to any political or religious affiliations and affecting people of all sexual identities and orientations.
