    Some people have a fear of circus clowns. Here is one reason why:

    The #MeToo movement hits the circus: 'Grandma' the clown resigns
    New York Times, January 23 2018

    One of America’s most revered circus performers, Grandma the clown, has resigned from the world-renowned Big Apple Circus after it was revealed that he pressured 16-year-old aerialist Zoey Dunne into posing for pornographic photos in 2004. Barry Lubin, 65, who played Grandma in a wig, pearls and a lumpy red dress to audiences of millions, offered his resignation on Friday shortly after Dunne contacted the circus to accuse him, said the circus’s chairman, Neil Kahanovitz, on Tuesday. Lubin, through his lawyer, released a statement acknowledging and apologizing for his conduct: "The allegations are true. What I did was wrong and I take full responsibility for my actions."

    Let's see if he claims this was just one of his carefully-staged illusions and didn't really happen.

    In 2017, when hundreds of women started speaking out about being sexually harassed or assaulted, actress-acticist Alyssa Milano encouraged victims to use the MeToo hashtag on Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat and other platforms. She was unaware that Tarana Burke had started a Me Too movement a decade earlier. Burke told The New York Times that when she saw Milano's tweet, "Initially I panicked. I felt a sense of dread because something that was part of my life’s work was going to be co-opted and taken from me and used for a purpose that I hadn’t originally intended." She needn't have worried. Milano and Burke are now working together to encourage victims to speak out.

    Tarana Burke, founder of the #MeToo movement Tarana Burke, is writing a book
    Where The Light Enters will tell her 'journey from victim to survivor to thriver' and explain why #MeToo was necessary.

    Oxfam workers hired prostitutes and downloaded pornography. Plan International UK workers abused children. Save The Children fired 16 workers for sexual misconduct. And now we learn of sexual improprieties at another charity:

    In the United States, is there any occupation where men are moral and honorable and do not abuse women? I'm starting to think there isn't.

    Head of US Forest Service steps down amid sexual misconduct allegations
    CBS News, Mar 8 2018 2:!0 PM

    U.S. Forest Service chief Tony Tooke has stepped down just days after an investigation was launched into sexual misconduct allegations against him and amid reports of rampant misbehavior, including rape, within the agency's ranks. A Forest Service spokesman today confirmed Tooke's sudden retirement less than seven months after he was named to the post by Agriculture Secretary Sonny Purdue. His departure comes less than a week after PBS NewsHour reported Tooke was under investigation following relationships with subordinates before he became chief.

    After the Academy expelled Harvey Weinstein five months ago for sexual abuse and sexual assault, Bailey assured the Academy members that he (Bailey) would support anyone who was a victim. Now we learn that Bailey had a few victims of his own. Sad.
