Time Magazine announced their person of the year for 2017… “The Silence Breakers.”
So Time Magazine feels that a bunch of women who are making accusations of sexual misconduct that are in some cases decades old to be the most influential and most important person of 2017. What a crying PC shame.
Of course the short list of candidates included the leaders of China and North Korea, so their choice could have been even more idiotic.
I’m not trying to diminish the severity of any unwanted sexual contact or harassment, but lets face it men are pigs, they have always been pigs and will more than likely always be pigs. Most keep those thoughts and actions in check… a select few will never be able to keep the genie in the bottle.
My problem with the current rash of so called silence breakers is that if they were violated so badly why wasn’t something done about it at the time? Could it be they felt at the time that it was okay or even appropriate? Certainly at the time it didn’t seem to be criminal.
The other problem I have is we live in a country that prides itself on a person being innocent until proven guilty, however apparently when it comes to any kind of sexual misconduct, no matter how old, those ideals are thrown out the window and one unproven acquisition is all it takes to ruin someone’s life.
So this year’s Time Magazine Person of the Year joins a long list of past winners that only serve to prove that the award is nothing more than one media outlets attempt to be relevant… if only for a day.
