Angela Lansbury, a female actress into her tenth decade of life commented in an interview that some women must take some blame for the sexual harassment problem in society. “There are two sides to this coin,” Lansbury, 92, said. “We have to own up to the fact that women, since time immemorial, have gone out of their way to make themselves attractive. And unfortunately it has backfired on us — and this is where we are today.”
In this she is correct.
There is no justification for sexual harassment, violation or any kind of wrong-doing that might be perpetrated against another person. Yet, there are many contribution factors.
- On November 4, 2017, there is a report from Paris with the headline “Paris Opens its First-Ever Naked Restaurant.”
- Hooter’s restaurant now has a change in strategy because older patrons have more interest in breast than younger patrons.
- In May of 2016, a report spoke of provocative dress and sexual responsibility.
- “A Democratic Congresswoman is under fire after saying that women are partially to blame for sexual assault and harassment in the way they dress and act.”
Thoughtful people see this as well as they see the sun shine in the sky. Agenda-oriented people, however, can’t see this at all, even as it stares them in the face. Why? Because that demands accountability/responsibility, and some think even if a woman walked naked down the street there is no justification to violation. This is true.
No justification, but a contribution.
In the earliest days of human history, the Lord said this will occur: “To the woman he said, ‘I will greatly increase your labor pains; with pain you will give birth to children. You will want to control your husband, but he will dominate you” (Genesis 3:16, NET). One expositor said about this passage, “…a conflict between the man and the woman. She will desire to control him, but he will dominate her instead.”
How does she do this? There are many contributing factors. Negatively, generally speaking, she can’t overpower him physically, but she can drop him to his knees sexually.
Of course, not all females are like this, and neither is it the case that all men are brutes.
There is no justification for sexual harassment or unwanted advances by one toward another. However, this will occur, and it will never stop when men (people) have no interest in the Lord’s way, though there is great interest in the ways of man. “They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world’s perspective and the world listens to them” (1 John 4:5).
No justification for wrong, but many contributions generate wrong-doing. RT
