I’ve had today’s show in my head for the last few weeks as I’ve watched Hollywood–and the world–rocked day by day with allegation after allegation of sexual abuse by major, major stars.
I’ve watched careers destroyed, movie premiers canceled, and marriages torn asunder.
I’ve thought again and again about the financial destruction being wrought by these allegations against so many men. Not only the loss of careers, the mega-million-dollar settlements, but the financial destruction of forthcoming divorces and the emotional distress leading to lost productivity.
To me, it seemed like an important topic to discuss with regard to finances.
But I held back, because I felt as though I would be picking on ideological opponents when they’re down and I don’t want to be one who rejoices in another’s time of distress.
When the allegations came out via the Washington Post against Judge Roy Moore in Alabama, I felt I couldn’t stay silent any longer.
And so, today, here are my thoughts on how men can protect themselves from sexual scandal.
