Sex Pests [Nov. 1st, 2017|12:01 pm]
Tony Grist
The important thing in the management of one's sexuality is not to allow it to become an annoyance to other people.

There are certain guidelines that may help one achieve this.

For instance:

1.Understand that "No" means no.

2.Never abuse or exploit a position of power.

3.Be sensitive to the  vulnerabilities of the people around you. 

4. Behave in ways appropriate to the place in which you find yourself: i.e.: behaviour that would be acceptable in a sex club is unlikely to be acceptable in the office or the back of a taxi.

5. Avoid the kind of banter that demeans people of the opposite sex or people whose sexuality differs from your own.

6. Have some regard to your personal dignity. There's a reason why elderly lechers are universally regarded with contempt. 

This doesn't exhaust the list- but all the rules you can think of pretty much boil down to "treat people (including yourself) with respect."

The unredacted list of Tory sex-pests is now widely available. I've seen it. There are 40 names on it- with brief accounts of what they are supposed to have done. Not all of them- however- appear to have fallen foul of the above guidelines. Having an office affair with someone of your own pay grade isn't abuse. Neither is indulging in non-mainstream activities with consenting adults (either fellow enthusiasts or people who have been paid for their services). That still leaves a large group of honourable members whose behaviour- to use the term employed in self-exculpation by one of them- has been "old-fashioned". They should be disciplined, told not to do it again or else- and the worst offenders should be given their marching orders. In one or two instances the Law should get involved. 

We now need similar lists to be produced for the other parties.

What we're seeing, I believe, is profound social change. Our generation accepted sexual abuse and bullying as just a part of the way things were. The young are saying, No, actually it's not acceptable and we're going to put a stop to it. I think the young are right.

The Heath case seems to have run into the sand but the police have a duty to investigate and can't know until they've actually done the work whether or not they're going to achieve a result. Heath may be dead but his alleged victims are still around- so it's not exactly ancient history.

I don't suppose I have an opinion about women flashing their breasts in public but I don't see it hurts anyone.
