#166: Addressing the Culture of Sexual Assault & Harassment

What’s Behind It and How Do We Heal

Sexual Assault

This week’s episode is one where are going to be raw and vulnerable to address a subject that is on the front burner in our country right now. It has to do with the sexual interactions that harm the lives of people and also get hidden under the rug.

Disclaimer: We do not recommend playing this episode or watching it with young viewers, as this subject gets into very sensitive material that may not be suitable for young hearts.

We’ve titled this episode “the culture of” because there is a culture that drives this vicious cycle of sexual impropriety, while keeping it going. The subject of sexual harassment and sexual assault have been brought more to the limelight in recent years, but especially of late, with the news reports surrounding Harvey Weinstein, a well-known movie producer who has launched some of the most successful movies in American film. Testimonies are coming forward rapidly with allegations of sexual assault, many of them with similar stories and details.

As this problem is brought more to the surface, are we really going to deal with the root causes of it, or will we hope it just goes away? Will it just simply go back under the carpet? What should our response be as the subject of sexual sin gets brought to the public spotlight?
