Blanca Blanco and sexual harrassment

Is this some kind of joke? All these women coming out distressed about sexual harassment. Did you see on the front page (Spokesman-Review, Jan. 9) how Blanca Blanco was dressed for the Golden Globes? If that “attire” doesn’t advertise “touch me,” “look at me,” “see that I’m sexually available,” then I don’t know what would aside from being totally naked in front of any normal straight man.

I admit I’m a baby boomer and back in my day this kind of woman was known as a tease, and believe me, nothing good ever came from being a tease. I hope I’m not alone in still believing there are two sides to every story.
