Lisa Fabrizio’s column at The American Spectator is about Herman Cain and sexual harassment, but she makes a parenthetical comment that gets to larger, more serious truth:

I and millions of Americans are being harassed nearly every time we open our eyes, with unwanted and unwelcome sexual advances over our publicly owned airwaves and in the schoolrooms we pay for.

Fabrizio missed an opportunity to connect male sexual aggression to the hyper-sexualized world the media and our schools have created, but her point that there are unwelcome sexual advances constantly foisted upon the public is both a serious and valid one. The difference is that when conservatives and people of faith complain about being bombarded with unwanted sexual imagery we are charged with prudery not hoisted on high as poster girls for faddish causes or exploited as convenient weapons against Republicans.
