A president, a senator, a newscaster, and a principal go into a bar...
Words matter. Spoken. Written. They matter. How
they are spoken matters. Written too. It also matters where they are spoken.
It matters that my former principal once pursed his lips and said to me, "This
is where I got my first kiss." It matters, too, that I feel I must explain myself to you. Why I was there in that
hotel lobby bar alone with him, and so I will not. I will write, however, that I was disgusted.
It matters that he screamed and cursed at me in front of other women. He intimidated
them and me. Intimidated me to "STAY THE F--K OUT OF IT!" and the other women to say they didn't remember his screams.
It matters, matters, matters, that ALL women who've reported him have
been silenced. Probably some with money. It matters that my district charged me almost 2,000 dollars to see public records
about him. I'd wanted records of employee requests to transfer out of his school.
It matters that his "Roger Ailes" boss equivalents--regional and district leadership--do nothing
to help women working at that school.
They only help him.
It matters that (former) Florida Senator Frank Artiles, apparently got drunk and
called people "n---as" and "b--ches." It matters, too, that others are brushing aside his words' impact.
"I think we're all ready to move on," said Representative Jose Diaz.
I'm not Mr. Diaz. I'm left to contemplate in frustration Mr. Artiles' disdain
for my and my daughter's gender. Your willingness to so quickly move on too.
So, words matter. It matters that President Trump lasciviously spoke of grabbing
women's "pu---es". President Trump was in his late fifties and had not yet fathered Baron. But he was
already married to our first lady.
It matters that Bill O'Reilly's
propositions and threats to women--over twenty years--were ignored. It matters that I was deceived by his on air grin
and twinkle. I thought he was fair. Was balanced. In spite of Kimberly Guilfoye and the rest of the Fox
News "girls" in tight skirts, push up bras, false eye lashes, and stilettos, I trusted Bill to inform me about
Bill's impish grin and twinkling
"on the air" eyes must have soured quickly though when the studio lights were dimmed.
I'm Monday morning quarterbacking my gullibility. But yeah, that
grin, now that I look closely IS a smirk. And that twinkle ain't nothin' but lascivious, lecherous thoughts about his
"Foxy broads" passing through his "Foxy brain."
I'll bet he often thinks about his "Foxy ladies"--women with masters' degrees....pole dancing. Erudite
and smart women naked and in stiletto heels. You know that's some "thought provoking" stuff!
What must it be like to be a woman and work at Fox News? Are women
required to wear those tight skirts and push up bras? Do their "gams" have to be on display? Because not a
one of them has a dimpled gam. Those displayed gams are workout worthy! As in work out your male eyes and pretend
you're interested in the news.
The dimpled gams are pants covered and on MSNBC and CNN.
Conservative values. What are those
exactly? Do conservatives value..tradition? Do Fox news watching men want women "(back) in their 'traditional'
places"? I add the word "back" because women have worked hard to get out of the place men like my former
principal and Bill O'Reilly apparently would like them. Dancing around poles, cooking dinner, and stuffing pipes? Women
are so much more than their boobs, butts and p---ies, gentlemen!
I'm done with Fox News. Done with defensive, disrespectful, dangerous men like my state senator, my
president, my newscaster and my former principal.
and my couch sitting, dimpled gams'll be at CNN with Anderson.
