Former Virginia Speaker of the House Vance Wilkins must be asking himself similar questions.
I believe Wilkins
says that he
thinks that he
did nothing wrong.I think that according to his
own personal moral code, he
has done nothing wrong.I think that he
grew up in a place and time when it was OK to harass women, because it was never defined as harassment.Wilkins
has roots in those times in which men could treat women as they wanted because the men wrote the rules.In those days, it was OK for men to flirt and fondle women, and the women were expected to like it.Women were expected to appreciate attention from powerful men.The more powerful, the more appreciation--that was the standard.
