On an Access Hollywood taped conversation between President Trump and Billy Bush, the President was recorded saying that he can “grab beautiful women by the pussy and they allow it because of who he is.” After this tape was made public, the President excused his conversation with Billy Bush as “locker room talk;” he declared that all men engage in this type of banter and there is nothing wrong with it. Do you agree or disagree with his excuse for this sexist, demeaning behavior? Create an argument in which you choose a specific position, provide a reason for it, and defend it. 2. Currently, women see men’s fear of being “outed” as a tool to stop the historical harassment and abuse of power that men have used against women for centuries. Is this a practical approach in the quest to hold men accountable for their past abuses? Create an argument in which you choose a specific position, provide a reason for it, and defend it. 3. How can men become allies for the #MeToo movement? Is this a reasonable expectation of men? 4. What is an unintended consequence(s) of an accusation of sexual harassment? How can a balance be achieved so that society is conscientious yet not stifled and unsure of what is acceptable? 5. “Men oppress and cast women out of social and work environments because ‘men’ don’t know how to behave around them.” Is never being alone with the opposite sex a solution to decreasing the chance of being sexually harassed? If not, what is the solution? You can choose one of these topics for Essay 1, or use an argument of your own creation about the topic of “sexual harassment, the #MeToo Movement, or an extension of the ideas that this specific unit deals with.
