Mike Pence spends a lot of his time working with, and apologizing for, a man who boasts about grabbing women by their genitals and forcing himself upon them without their consent. Based on recent interviews and reporting, it appears that Pence may fear that he too might succumb to such animalistic urges – if he isn’t careful.
As reported in the Washington Post: “At least according to one interview, Vice President Pence never eats alone with a woman who is not his wife. Nor will he attend an event without her where alcohol is served. Mike Pence knows all too well what will happen. Mike Pence must avoid temptation at all costs.”
Stated the San Francisco Chronicle: “Let’s take just a moment to consider this pair of rules Mike Pence has for himself. He obviously thinks that every interaction he has with a woman is so sexually charged that it’s safe to be around them only if there are other people there, too. Unless someone might be drinking, in which case even the presence of a crowd isn’t enough to prevent . . . something from happening.”
Yesterday, Pence cast the deciding vote in the Senate for a bill that would block access to women’s health services at Planned Parenthood centers. Seems Pence has some deep, deep women issues to work through.
