…in any way. And that’s because the person at issue is Ellen DeGeneres. And Ellen DeGeneres is a famous and well-beloved Hollywood lesbian. So the reason that that is relevant, her sexuality, is because Ellen DeGeneres tweeted this out yesterday.
This is a tweet of her on Katy Perry’s birthday. And it’s a picture of Ellen DeGeneres staring directly into Katy Perry’s cleavage from about six inches away as her partner Portia de Rossi laughs next to her. I think it’s Portia de Rossi, correct. I’m pretty sure.
And then Katy Perry is kind of smiling into the camera slightly awkwardly. And it says, Happy birthday, Katy Perry! It’s time to bring out the big balloons. Right, a direct reference to her breasts.
Now let me just suggest. If any man tweeted out this exact photo, this exact photo, if Ellen’s head or Harvey Weinstein’s head we would be talking about this was more evidence of sexual harassment in Hollywood.
Ellen DeGeneres is a very, very powerful host. And the fact that Katy Perry seems to be smiling here is not the issue, right. I mean there are plenty of pictures where Harvey Weinstein is posing with smiling women who he sexually harassed or sexually assaulted.

The fact is that there’s a double standard with how we treat these situations. And as I have been now saying for weeks we need some sort of singular standard as to what constitutes appropriate behavior and what does not.
Ellen DeGeneres is a lesbian which means this is her acting upon objects of her sexual desire. If a man did the same thing, we would be saying this is totally inappropriate how dare he and it doesn’t matter if Katy Perry smiling, it just shows how toxic masculinity has infused everyone.
The whole point here is the double standard. And double standard applies to everyone. Mark Halperin just was essentially fired from NBC News. He said he resigned, took time off to spend more time with his – with his genitals.
But in any case Mark Halperin the accusations are that he allegedly, sexually, assaulted up to five women, sexually harassed or assaulted up to five women that he would push them up against the wall, grope them, press his genitals against them. This is Mark Halperin the guy who wrote ‘Game Change’ a very famous reporter – he’s on NBC News every day, has talked about sexual assault in the most – in the most indignant of terms. Sexual assault is horrible, sexual harassment is horrible. And in meanwhile in the back room he’s grabbing the interns apparently.
This goes to show you also the – not only do we have a double standard with regard to people we like, we have a double standard with regard to ourselves. The stuff that we do, we – human beings have unique capacity to do this. We can engage in many of the sins that we condemn other people for. And the mark of a good human being is that you think enough about this, to think whether in fact you are upholding the standard that you seek to promulgate, that you’re upholding the standard that you seek to push. If you’re not doing that, then we all need to do better. And I think we can all do better on these scores.
But the reason I’m pointing out these three different scenarios, the HW, the Ellen DeGeneres and the Mark Halperin situations is because these double standards have been in place for a very long time. And we need to decide in society what sort of behavior we are willing to accept.
I think the behavior should be this, men do not touch women without their permission. That’s the behavior, right. We’re done here.
And it’s not the same thing if a man asks out a girl to a bar, it’s not the same thing if a man says that a girl is beautiful today, it’s not the same thing if a man says that she – that he likes a girl’s dress, okay a woman’s dress. Not the same thing at all we need to make some actual separations here.
But instead what I feel like this is devolved into is now we’re just – as usual conversations in America, has evolved into who’s the victim today. And then we all come out and say it’s terrible that person was victimized. And then we set no standard by which we can determine whether someone is victim or not until they proclaim themselves a victim at which point we say they’re a victim, right?
So if we had found out the H. W. Bush, Heather Lind thing just through a third party source, not through Heather Lind, then we would have had to decide in society there’s something okay or not. She declared that she was offended therefore it was bad. If she had declared that she was not offended, then it would have been fine, right.
Action is not subjective when it comes to societal standards. It’s not subjective. You don’t get to decide whether an activity is good or bad for me, right. I as a member of society determine whether an activity is good or bad. And I’m getting kind of tired of this routine where something is not harassment so as long as I’m not offended, but it is harassment if I am offended. We’re going to need to draw some lines if we actually want to enforce those lines.

I want to talk a little bit about – a little bit about another story that’s pretty devastating out of the state of Texas yesterday. And then I want to get into what I really want to talk about today at length, which is the split inside the Republican Party.
But first, I want to say thank you to our sponsors over at DaVinci. So in today’s digital world there are a lot of people who don’t even have an office.

As far as the Zoey Tur incident for people who didn’t see this and don’t know what she is referring to, it’s kind of a fun story. So I’ll tell it. So – so story time with Ben Shapiro.
So about – about three months ago you can find this online, go to YouTube it’s – it was a very big story at the time, it was like the number one trending topic on Facebook and Twitter. It was – so – I was invited to go on CNN Headline News on the Dr. Drew show. And I was invited to talk about how Caitlyn Jenner, was Caitlyn Jenner a hero or not. This is what ESPN was giving Caitlyn Jenner the hero award. You know rather than soldiers who would have limbs blown off and continued their athletic careers, right? No – Caitlyn Jenner was a hero for being an extraordinarily wealthy white man with a mental disorder.
And the – and so they knew my opinion on this obviously I had written about it, I had spoken about it. And my belief – I – there’s something I like and it’s called science. And science suggests that if you have – if you have not a single cell in your body without a Y chromosome, except for your sperm cells, and if you still have all your appendages, and if you still have your tweaking berries and all the rest of it, but you call yourself a woman no. No and this goes back to my feeling that your subjective view of yourself is completely irrelevant to me. I don’t care what you think you are, I just care what you are. And so you know they knew what was – they knew what I was going to say, I made this very clear.
The producer of the Dr. Drew show who happens to be a former producer he told me on Jerry Springer – I decided that it would be a wise idea to have on to debate me a guy by the name of Zoey Tur, who is a transgender woman. Is a post-op transgender woman and is a he because he is still a he. You can – you can lose the parts and you are still a man, okay. So they decide to seat the two of us next to each other. And so we’re seated next to each other and this debate starts and everybody is talking about is Caitlyn Jenner a hero, or is Caitlyn Jenner not a hero? And finally they come to me, and I said I don’t understand why we are engaging in mass delusion, right.
Well why are we doing the Emperor’s New Clothes bit?
Alright, we all know Caitlyn Jenner is a man, we’re sitting here pretending Caitlyn Jenner is a woman. And in one point I said to one of the guys on the panel would you date Caitlyn Jenner? Now you’re a straight guy would you date Caitlyn Jenner?
And the answer of course is no because Caitlyn Jenner still has a penis, okay it’s the most feminine penis you’ve ever seen. And it’s – and – and so you know I say and so I you know I say this, and micro aggression is everywhere. And – and I run – and just as I say, micro aggressions lead to actual aggression.
So what happened is I said this and this transgender guy sitting next to me, he grabs me by the back of the neck on National TV and says if you don’t cut that out, you’ll go home in an ambulance. Or I’ll send you home in an ambulance, which is weird as ambulances don’t go home.
And – and – and so I was taken aback slightly. And to have this – this guy who was feel – what precipitated it is there was a point where he had said, you don’t understand genetics. And I said, what are your genetics sir? And it was the sir that got to him. And so – and so – in a voice at least two octaves lower than mine he growled at me, you know I’ll send you home in an ambulance.
And uh – and what was amazing about the experience was that the uh – everybody on the panel, – universally on the panel everybody turned on me after a threat of physical violence. In an actual legal battery on National Television they turned on me, how could – you knew that was going to be offensive didn’t you? You knew that was going to be offensive. To which I said, I don’t care, right. That’s not – my job is not to be inoffensive, my job is to tell the truth. I mean you had me on this program to say exactly this. Well the outcome of this is that I went and did what I – really mostly to make the point that you’re not supposed to be able to get away with this stuff. I went, I filed the police report for battery. And I did so because after the – during the break, Zoey Tur turned to me and said, “I’ll see you in the parking lot.” They’d security out to the outdoors with me, they’d sent them to my car, he was threatening me on Twitter saying well he would curb stomp me, et cetera. And by the – which I have to say is deeply unladylike behavior.
And uh – and so the – the end result was that it goes from the police to the DA, it finally gets to the DA. And the DA says that we can’t – this fact pattern we can’t do it, I mean it’s on video. But this fact pattern we can’t do anything because the person who – the person who assaulted you, essentially the person who committed battery upon you, is a member of a victimized minority essentially. There is no doubt, none that if I had – if I had been the one who grabbed Zoey Tur by the back of the neck and threatened to send him home in an ambulance that I certainly would have been given some sort of probation. There’s no question about it I’ve talked to multiple police officers in the LAPD and they assured me this is the case.
