“It’s a Double Standard on Steroids”: Katy Perry Forces Teen Boy to Kiss Her—And #MeToo Is Silent

With the #MeToo movement taking America by storm since the Harvey Weinstein scandal, it’s no secret that society is starting to take sexual assault against women more seriously. From Weinstein to Matt Lauer to former Olympic doctor Larry Nassar, the allegations of sexual misconduct against people in power have given women of all social classes a voice like never before.

But what about the guys?

While sexual assault is generally a hot topic surrounding females, it is certainly not exclusive to them. They aren’t the only victims.

And nothing could make that more clear than an “uncomfortable” situation that unfolded on the American Idol stage earlier this week when Katy Perry kissed 19-year-old contestant Benjamin Glaze against his will.

After some playful pre-audition banter with judges Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan, and Katy Perry, Glaze disclosed that he’d never kissed a girl before.

“Have you kissed a girl and liked it?” asked Bryan, jokingly referencing Perry’s hit song, “I Kissed a Girl.”

“I have never been in a relationship and I can’t kiss a girl without being in a relationship,” replied Glaze, who sources later revealed comes from a conservative Christian background.
