Tracee Ellis Ross’ Children’s Book for Handsy Men

  • Published on Dec 6, 2017
  • Our guest host Tracee Ellis Ross decided that since she had a big platform like this, she wanted to talk about the Hollywood sexual harassment scandal. Over the past two months, countless brave women have come forward to share their experiences and while Tracee isn’t totally surprised by these stories, it seems like quite a few men are. Treating women with respect shouldn’t be complicated but it seems to be a bit confusing for a lot of men. So Tracee wrote a children’s book for men to make this real simple for them. #TheHandsyMan

    from my understanding of this, this was a generalization of what happens in the workplace. I don't think anyone should discredit that women are more that able to do vile actions, just like the men. But from what I've personally seen myself, the inappropriate acts *appear* to happen to the women from the men *more often*. It also depends on the region of the world you're in. It's a complicated and delicate subject, so obviously I have a lot to say about this, but that would be me talking for probably 30 minutes minimum to paint a general picture HAHA.

    I will never understand men that whip out their junk. No one wants to see that. That is not to say all that other stuff is acceptable, but I can understand why someone would want to do those things, but exposing yourself is something I can't wrap my head around.

    NOTICE at about 20 seconds she uses the word INIQUITY meaning SIN, we live in a culture of Sin driven by Hollywood, Porn, Sexually Graphic Music lyrics, but that's the reason why Jesus died for all sinners that you might believe in Him. Repent meaning turn from your sins & turn your focus on a Loving Savior who offers forgiveness, grace & compassion. Salvation is a free gift "JOHN 3:16" please accept this free gift by faith (not by your good deeds, but by Jesus's good deed) accept this free gift during this Christmas season. It's only a prayer away, simply ask & receive before it's to late.

    Its not right but alot of small business owners near me are no longer hiring women so they don't have to worry bout this. They won't say it publicly but this whole situation is gonna backfire on some women unfortunately. Hopefully its not like that in the rest of the country.

    Never hug. Never shake hands. Never touch another human being unless you are a doctor or in a position to somehow save their life. Never be alone in a room with less than four people. Never have any human contact whatsoever. Because at some point you will do something that someone considers sexual harassment or assault, and your life will be over. Basically, never go outside and never interact with anyone unless it's over a recorded video session. Log those recordings.

      L J If I ask for consent and don't get it, I'll be the creep who asked for a hug and my life will be over. If the person consents, even if I just put one around their back with my hand on their shoulder and give a gentle squeeze, they might say I squeezed too hard or too long or that I tried to somehow grope them and my life will be over.

    "And if I am your employee"... No chances to be "the employee" with such an attitude to Handsy boss. There is a line of candidates for your position, especcially in show biz, who understands that everything has it's own price

    There is a creepy guy, with ten long fingers
    creepy glares, and hugs that linger
    If you're a woman, you're not a fan
    I speak, of course of The Handsy Man
    Handsy Man, based on the news
    you seem to be a bit confused
    Listen and I'll explain to you
    all the things you may not do
    You may not compliment my butt
    you may not called me "ho" or "slut"
    and even if you're stoned or drunk
    do not expose me to your junk
    and if I am your employee
    do not rest your hand upon my knee
    no, I wont sit on your lap
    I shouldn't have to say this crap!
    You cannot smell my hair, you creep
    or grab my boobs while I'm asleep
    I do not want a back massage
    Did you follow me to the parking garage?
    I do not like you, Handsy man
    You are not allowed to touch my can
    Not on a plane
    Not on a train
    Not in a boat
    Not in your moat
    Not in a tree
    Not by the sea
    Not in your mansion
    Help me, Chris Hansen!
    So Handsy Man if your still confused
    Whether your behavior will be excused
    I'll say it clearly, nice and slow
    If she doesn't consent- the answer is NO!

    If a woman is drunk than obviously she is not able to give a logical consent. Sounds like you are used to preying on women that are easy to take advantage of when they are weak. What a loser. Get some class instead of taking advantage of easy marks.

    Since some people might not take sexual harassment serious and think it is a joke, I think this book is comical and another way of letting jokers see who shall have the last laugh. by any means necessary Abuse will no longer be tolerated Silence Speaks in all places now. Rise Up and save someone is the answer whether in the home workplace etc. No english needed to comprehend abuse only changes are happening all over the world.
