Louis C.K. Crossed a Line Into Sexual Misconduct, 5 Women Say – The New York Times

Having someone masturbate in front of you, while repulsive and dehumanizing, is NOT the worst of the trauma these women went through. The ongoing severe damage is their loss of career opportunities because powerful men had no problem with protecting their own careers and reputations at the expense of women.

To recap: sexual harassment is bad because it harms women socially, economically, and creatively, not because we can’t cope with a moment of feeling threatened and grossed out.”
