ON SEXUAL HARASSMENT
As men and women of faith and good will, how can we understand and relate to the prevalence of sexual abuse and the current “me too” movement?
“Our sexuality is a God-given, integral aspect of our human experience and deserves to be respected as a gift. At the very minimum, this means that our sexual boundaries be respected, namely, that no one be sexual with us unless we want them to, that is through free consent between two adults as a free act of intimacy. I want to talk about when two people are in a relationship and one has more power than the other, and the one who is more powerful sexualizes the relationship and exploits it to their own gratification at the price of the other.”
