The outrageous truth behind the satire

Should have given, 50, Steve, but this oh no he tóó?! circus gets so depressing it spoils the fun for me. It is epidemic. We are flooded with stories about deranged men with less sexual restraint than a horny gorilla drugged with viagra. We already knew the shocking facts about the number of women being (sexually) assaulted in any country, mostly by their fathers, uncles, brothers and spouses*. We learned about widespread sexual abuse of boys by priests in the sacred institutions of the Catholic Church, we were (at least in my country) struck by reports about sexual abuse of patients in homes for the mentally disabled. We already struggle for a long time with (the tragic news about) pedophilia and child porn. Now the theatre world, the movie world, the political world and broadcasting corporations appear to be populated by stupid, aggressive walking penises with or without bow. We should have known.

Power/hierarchy is the lever. Men are the #1 perpetrators. The Baby-in-Chief is the prime example of the negligence of this world wide problem. Women are supporting him. Evangelicals are supporting him. It is stunning.

Please prevail with your satire. We need it to cope.
