Twisted PC Logic Of The Day

Posted on the 12 July 2019 by Markwadsworth @Mark_Wadsworth

From the BBC:
A Republican candidate for Mississippi governor has refused to be interviewed by a female reporter unless she brings a male colleague with her.
Larrison Campbell, 40, said she had asked to shadow Robert Foster on a 15-hour "ride-a-long" on his campaign, but was denied because of her sex.

Ho hum, does he explain why..?
Mr Foster said he was acting out of precaution and he did not want to raise any suspicions about his marriage. "This is my truck, and in my truck we go by my rules," he said on CNN.
During the CNN interview with Ms Campbell and Mr Foster on Thursday, the 36-year-old gubernatorial candidate cited his religion and faith, arguing he had made a vow to his wife to not be alone with someone of the opposite sex.
"I don't trust the perception that the world puts on people when they see things and they don't ask a question, they don't look to find out the truth," he said, "Perception is a reality in this world, and I don't want to give anybody the opinion that I'm doing something that I should not be doing."
Mr Foster said following the #MeToo movement, "men are under attack all the time". "I'm not going to allow myself to be put in a situation with any female where they can make an accusation against me" without someone else in attendance, he said.

So he doesn't want to make his wife feel insecure and is worried about false claims. I think it's fair to infer that he fears he will be Led Into Temptation and or that he might end up with a Bunny Boiler. And that is the end of that. As the man says, his truck, his rules. And fifteen hours is a heck of a long time, quite unnecessarily long to conduct an interview. What next, a reporter asks whether she can camp out at his house for a weekend?
Here's the PC leap of logic:
"What you're saying here is that a woman is a sexual object first and a reporter second," Campbell told Mr Foster on Thursday.
No, that's exactly the opposite of what he said.
If he really "viewed women as sexual objects" he would have invited her along unaccompanied and tried it on. He wanted to have a neutral situation where they could both concentrate on the actual reporting/interview,.
