On Nov. 13, 2017, The New York Times reported that Republican Senate candidate Roy S. Moore, was accused of sexual misconduct— another tally on the list of public victims. Moore “forced [her] head onto his crotch” and Beverly Nelson was coerced into giving the candidate oral sex. After 50 years, Ms. Nelson came forward to speak of an incident that occurred when she was 16; Moore told her no one would believe her. Senate Republicans openly discuss Moore’s expulsion if he wins the Dec. 12 special election. He should be voluntarily dropping out of the campaign due to humiliation. An individual who has been accused of sexual misconduct still believes he should be highly respected.

The name “Harvey Weinstein” was recently splashed all over the papers as the producer was accused of sexually harassing numerous women for decades. After accusations, more women gained the courage to come forward about Weinstein and other celebrity offenders. Men are victims of sexual assault as well. Kevin Spacey was accused of making a sexual advance toward Anthony Rapp when they worked together in 1986. Spacey is over two decades older than Rapp and this news was reported three decades after it occurred. Additionally, Ben Affleck is a target of a sexual accusation after videos were released of him groping Hilarie Burton in 2003. Apparently if you are a handsome Oscar-winning man, all you have to do is apologize on social media after publicly groping someone. While Affleck is casted in Blockbusters, Burton may feel violated since Affleck, “tweaked [her] left boob.”
