i have mixed feelings about all of the accusations coming to light. on the one hand, i believe this kind of abuse is pervasive and rampant, and ought to be eradicated. on the other hand, i wonder if some accusations are opportunistic—but then i wonder why someone, especially women who are often easily discounted or discredited, would risk exposure by falsely accusing these powerful men of abuse.

finally, i think of dr graham, who diligently worked never to be alone with a woman other than his immediate family, so that there could never even be the shadow of a hint of impropriety. i know some thought it excessively conservative or strict, and i am sure it was inconvenient for him and his staff, and yet—never once has there ever been any question over his conduct. not a bad policy to imitate, in my opinion.

That policy doesn't work for everyone, though. My job has put me in the back of the ambulance alone with a woman many times. My internship puts me in hospital rooms alone with patients on a regular basis. It just isn't feasible for me.

Same. I just have to do the best I can with what I have and make sure I'm never in a compromising position and that I never say something that could be construed poorly in that situation... But it'd be so easy to be accused. My prayer is that I can live a life of integrity at all times that will shine through if such an accusation happens.
