    I like how the contestants in the Peruvian pageant turned the demeaning statement of their bodily measurements into a teachable moment by providing statistics on female disempowerment: "My measurements are... 550 women killed in domestic violence incidents in 2016.", "My measurements are... 2 million women without access to prenatal health care.", and so on. Way to take control of the conversation and subvert a sexist system.

    The sexual harassment issue is a passing fad like the pet rock. The moral decline and the "anything goes" mentality of the liberals comes with a price.

    In the short term it makes liberals with absolutely no morals the false belief that they are saints.

    Some men (and women) simply have carnal minds that whisk them off to inappropriate realms and activities. Mix in some power and money and it can create situations ripe for sexual harassment, abuse and rape. These should NEVER happen!!!

    However, I wonder why women will scantily clad themselves in public and on a stage where hundreds to millions are watching (depending on the pageant venue) and then be surprised that harassment, abuse and rape occur. This comment isn't victim shaming. It just seems that tempting the morally weak in any situation with low cleavage, strapless gowns and slits cut to the groin is not the wisest choice.

    It reminds me of the woman who wore short, revealing skirts with NOTHING under them and walked near construction zones on a daily basis. She wondered why she was sexually assaulted. Do I think she deserved it? NO!!! But why encourage it?!!!
