The Billy Graham Rule

Vice President Mike Pence follows what has been called the "Billy Graham rule." The Washington post explains:
In 2002, Mike Pence told The Hill that he never eats alone with a woman other than his wife and that he won’t attend events featuring alcohol without her by his side, either.
Feminists believe such a policy harms women's prospects in organizational life, and they may well be correct. Instapundit Glenn Reynolds takes a jaundiced view of their complaints:
So you drastically expand the definition of “sexual harassment,” and then promote an ethic that says that all accusations must be believed, and then you’re shocked that workplace men don’t want to hang out with women? How stupid are you?
Reminds me of the old adage about not being able to have it both ways.
