Let me tell you about some of the Harvey Weinsteins I worked with.
There was the creative director who regularly shoved his hand up his secretary’s crotch and down her bra. She was so outraged, she took him to a legal tribunal (which she lost). Most of the rest of us thought she was overreacting. After all, he was gay, so it wasn’t really sexual harassment, was it? For the record, he treated men as badly as he treated women.
There was the account guy who strolled into my office after a presentation and said, of the middle-aged female client who’d just turned down some of our work, “Nothing wrong with her that a good shafting wouldn’t fix.”
It’s even possible that both are wrong but they’re most assuredly not the same, are they?
And even in the middle of an entirely of an entirely righteous condemnation of the one we’ve got to be careful in our distinctions.
