When news broke this week of Herman Cain's history of sexual harassment problems, it was only a matter of time before conservatives were tripping over themselves to insist that sexual harassment isn't a "real" problem; it's just about humorless, radicalized, money-grubbing women who can't take a joke. Like conservative columnist John Derbyshire:
Is there anyone who thinks sexual harassment is a real thing? Is there anyone who doesn’t know it’s all a lawyers’ ramp, like “racial discrimination“? You pay a girl a compliment nowadays, she runs off and gets lawyered up. Is this any way to live?
