Mark Steyn: ‘Do I Really Want to Be Alone With a Female Employee?’ How Would She Feel in 30 Years?
— Fox News (@FoxNews) December 15, 2017
Since the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke kicking off the #MeToo movement, 42 powerful men in entertainment, politics and media have lost their jobs or resigned their positions due to accusations of sexual misconduct, according to The New York Times. The Times has also reported that 24 additional men have experienced suspensions or similar fallouts over allegations.
In a Tucker Carlson Tonight discussion on wave of stories that have come out in recent week, conservative commentator Mark Steyn expressed concern over spending time alone with female colleagues — as he doesn’t know what they might say about him years down the line.
“I think occasionally, ‘Do I really want to be alone with a female employee now?'” Steyn declared, leading Fox News host Tucker Carlson to utter “I think that all the time.”
Steyn continued, “Who knows how she’s going to feel about it in 30-years’ time? And I don’t necessarily think that’s in the interest of women in the workplace. And I don’t think it’s in the interest of social relations.”
He went on to claim that the movement was an “insane moral panic” that started with genuine sexual assault but has now “degenerated” into one anonymous accusation after another.
