What to tell the children about male predatory sexual mores?“Naked woman in a robe holding a pineapple” by Marvin Meyer on Unsplash

I don’t have any young children or grandchildren, so I’m asking for a friend.

What do you tell your children and grandchildren about managing their conduct in social settings. Especially, in light of the scandalous revelations about the president and the many women who have alleged they have had unprotected sexual relations with him?

Do you tell the children it is okay to meetup with a porn actress one day and within hours hookup with her in unprotected erotic bliss?

After all if the president of the United States did not use condoms when he was a 60 year old man, surely it's okay for every young person in the country to follow his lead.

Who could argue with that, right?

Do you tell your male child when he is blessed to have a wife who loves and adores him, and she becomes pregnant, it is okay to have a one night stand with a porn actress?

After all a man got to have what a man got to have, right?

Do you tell the children that if you grow up to be able to sway public opinion on your behalf, it is alright to walk up to any woman and grab her by the pudendum?

After all women will let a man with power do it, right?

Do you tell the children “I don’t care what the president does with woman as long as his politics align with my views?”

After all if the politics is right who cares about morals and morality, right?

Do you tell your male children when his lovely wife is in the family way it is okay to have a 10 month affair with a Playboy Bunny?

After all a man should not have to do without the joys of a woman’s body just because his spouse is burden with childbirth, right?

Do you tell the children if it wasn’t acceptable behavior, the president would not engage in these acts, would he?

I don’t know the answers, just asking for a friend.
