i am setting aside partisan politics. I do not believe that the majority of the women coming out against powerful men these days are totally innocent. I have been in healthcare for 35 years now. It is a profession that is dominated by women. I have seen women flirt openly with doctors, married or not, they flirt. I have seen dozens of women end up marrying doctors they first worked with. In several cases they broke up the doctors marriage or their own or both. Undeniably, women are attracted to wealth and power. These powerful men both in politics and the private sector get flirted with on a daily basis. It doesn’t take long before it begins to affect them. One slip up at a moment of weakness is all it takes. A hand on a bare back, a pat on the butt, or a dirty joke and you can be taken down many years into the future. I’m not saying they are totally innocent victims here. Especially the married men who should know better. I’m not as powerful or rich as a doctor but I have more power and money than most. I am and have been happily married and the flirting is nothing more to me than flattering. If I can do it then certainly anyone can. It’s easy for me with all I’ve observed in 35 years to imagine exactly how so many otherwise intelligent men get caught up in this. It’s easy for me to see their accusers in a much different, and I believe much more accurate light than they are being portrayed.
