Indecision 2012 - Ruh Roh Edition

(Editorial note included) Herman Cain denies allegations of sexual harassment, and Rick Perry overcorrects for past debate performance stiffness.

Editorial Note: At least for now, please keep in mind that such accusations are merely mud slinging in a campaign year. Were it not a campaign year, it is unlikely this would be hitting the news. Without diminishing in the slightest the importance of respect for women, and until such allegations are found to be of critical nature to the integrity or capability of Herman Cain, they should be ignored.

There are many more important issues to find fault with in Cain's positions, views and statements that are facts in evidence. Until proven otherwise, vague accusations should be considered less meaningful.

Lest we need to be reminded, no human being can fulfill the fantasy image of a critical audience, and people still find other people, men and women, attractive. We don't know at this time the nature of these allegations or events. But we all should remember that even enjoying the attractiveness of another human being, can be considered complimentary, or can sometimes be interpreted as some sort of lewd gesture. Sometimes this is a difference in cultural perspective, sometimes it is harassment, sometimes it may be both. As distasteful as it may be to some, the reality is we are human and pretty much everyone sees things through their own filter.

Sexual harassment is an important issue and we must not allow anything, such as tripping over our own feet, to get in the way of the progress we have made for women's rights in the past century. Let's keep our eye on the prize of 'equal rights'.
