These people with their dumbass hyperboles. None of these men did anything close to telling a woman she had a pretty dress. They're exposing themselves, touching themselves, harassing, raping, abusing their power, etc. They are offended that women (and men) feel that they should have a right to their own personal space.

Shit like this is just disgusting, especially when it comes from women. But it's not surprising coming from Wendy. Any woman that let's her husband treat her like a piece of trash for twenty years would sympathize with these men also.

Well, Williams is along the trash level she stoops herself to so I'm not surprised at what she said.

these are aspects of society i was blaming. sure, punish the fuckers in the short term, but let's also get at the root causes long term.

Amd yet this type of behavior is far less frequent amongst the younger generations. The young are much more socially aware of their behavior and the inherent sexism that defines us older generations.


That would be nice, but I don't know what your empirical basis is for saying it.

The very young are not yet in the positions of power that enable their sexual appetites to run amok. I'd be very surprised if the sexual behavior of tomorrow's kings, generals, politicians, business executives, directors, actors, news anchors, and rock stars is any different from all the preceding generations throughout history. (And I hope there's a way I find out.)


yeah, no. i don't see the younger generations saving us or being saved. they'll have their own sordid twist because the frameworks of sexism and power haven't changed. hell, teenagers have somehow convinced themselves that oral sex isn't really sex! and young women are acquiescing. meanwhile, almost half of american teenagers have hpv, and those numbers are repeated in other countries as well.

and btw, why aren't we more outraged that our tax dollars are going toward silencing the victims?

But who the hell ever thought it was ok to drop trou in front of someone? That is such a completely bizarre notion to me. I've never heard of or thought of such a thing.


Amen, brother. I got long LIST of shit I want to do with a woman and that one has never even crossed my mind.


Then you don't have the mind of Bill Clinton, who as governor of Arkansas had state troopers bring women to his hotel rooms.

One was Paula Jones. Clinton dropped trou and told Jones to "kiss it". She bolted in revulsion, subsequently sued Clinton for sexual harassment, and eventually prevailed in a $850,000 settlement. Along the way, Clinton got impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice, was fined $90,000 by a federal judge for lying and other contempt of court, and lost his law license.

And Paula Jones wasn't even the most egregious charge against Clinton. Juanita Brodderick has claimed for 20 years that Clinton violently assaulted and raped her.

Yet, the "feminist" movement and the entire left wing machine not only defended and excused Clinton (and still does), not only disbelieved and marginalized all the women who came out against him, but they (including Hillary Clinton) affirmatively slut-shamed and bullied the victimized women. In a famous New York Times op-ed in 1998, feminist icon Gloria Steinem dismissed Clinton's actions toward Paula Jones (and Kathleen Willey) as nothing more than "a clumsy sexual pass," after which Clinton essentially honored women because "the President took 'no' for an answer." The New York Times has reportedly purged Steinem's article from its archives, but it can still be found and is currently being discussed again.

I agree that none of this behavior by powerful men is new, but is simply now being widely reported. I further don't expect it to stop. After the current bubble of purge passes, after Hollywood and Congress and the media congratulate themselves about a few firings and rule changes, powerful men will continue to use their power for sexual conquest.

Moreover, today there is a greatly diminished societal support structure to model and mold the behavior of young boys and girls. Largely gone are two-parent homes with extended families, embedded in consistent and non-relative community morals, and immersed in a strong matrix of religious training. Today, we have millions of partially parent-less kids, alone in secular technological anomie, with graphic pornography on view screens that are ever-present in their hands.



This same stuff happened when the (white) male worked and ruled, his woman stayed home and raised the kids, the family attended church every Sunday, and blacks "knew their place".

I'd wager few of the accused were, as kids, "alone in secular technological anomie, with graphic pornography on view screens that are ever-present in their hands."

That's what the imams keep saying

So with all these liberals getting fired, I'm sure that Stonington must agree it's time for Congress to do its job and fire admitted "sex pervert " Donald Trump, right?

After all, if pinching a woman on the ass makes one a "sex pervert", grabbing her by the pussy must certainly qualify.

Stonington QB wrote:
Do you have a specific example of when he did this or are we supposed to take some nonsense talk on a party bus as fact?

Sorry you're still mourning the loss of your hero today, Art. I don't know what else to tell you besides pick some better role models.






Here are some of the women Trump, in another of a long line of unfulfilled campaign promises, has yet to sue for libel/defamation:


Jessica Leeds (early 1980s)
The allegation: Leeds said Trump grabbed her breasts and tried to put his hand up her skirt when she was seated next to him in first class on a flight in the early 1980s. “He was like an octopus,” she said. “His hands were everywhere.”

Afterward, she fled to the back of the plane. “It was an assault,” she said.

Later, he mocked Leeds at a campaign rally, suggesting she wasn’t attractive enough to sexually harass. “Yeah, I’m gonna go after — believe me, she would not be my first choice, that I can tell you,” he said.

Since then: “It is hard to reconcile that Harvey Weinstein could be brought down with this, and [President] Trump just continues to be the Teflon Don,” Leeds told the Washington Post in October 2017.

She’s also said she would be interested in providing a deposition in the Zervos defamation suit. “I would do it — I’m not afraid,” Ms. Leeds said.


Kristin Anderson (early 1990s)
The allegation: Anderson claimed that while she was out at a New York club with friends in the early 1990s, someone slid his hand under her miniskirt and touched her vagina through her underwear. She turned around a recognized him as Donald Trump.

“It wasn’t a sexual come-on. I don’t know why he did it. It was like just to prove that he could do it and nothing would happen,” Anderson said. “There was zero conversation. We didn’t even really look at each other. It was very random, very nonchalant on his part.”

Since then: Anderson is mentioned in the Zervos lawsuit, but has not discussed her claim publicly since the election.



Jill Harth (1993)
The allegation: Harth claimed that Trump made repeated unwanted sexual advances as she and her romantic partner at the time, George Houraney, pursued a business relationship with the mogul in the early 1990s. She said that on January 24, 1993, at Mar-a-Lago, Trump offered her a tour of the estate, then pulled her into his daughter Ivanka’s empty bedroom.

“He pushed me up against the wall, and had his hands all over me and tried to get up my dress again,” Harth said, “and I had to physically say: ‘What are you doing? Stop it.’ It was a shocking thing to have him do this because he knew I was with George, he knew they were in the next room. And how could he be doing this when I’m there for business?”

In 1997 Harth and Houraney sued Trump for breach of contract, and she filed a separate sexual-harassment suit, accusing him of “attempted rape.” They reached a confidential settlement in the contract suit, and as part of the agreement Harth withdrew her suit.


Miss Teen USA Contestants (1997)
The allegation: Five women who competed in the 1997 Miss Teen USA claimed Trump, who owned the pageant, walked in on them while they were changing.

“It was certainly the most inappropriate time to meet us all for the first time,” said Victoria Hughes, the former Miss New Mexico Teen USA. “The youngest girl was 15, and I was the eldest at 19.”

On The Howard Stern Show, Trump admitted to “inspecting” the contestants backstage. It wasn’t clear if he was referring to the Miss USA pageant, or the contest for teens.

“You know, I’m inspecting because I want to make sure that everything is good,” he said. “You know, the dresses. ‘Is everyone okay?’ You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody okay?’ And you see these incredible-looking women, and so, I sort of get away with things like that.”


Cathy Heller (1997)
The allegation: Heller says she received an unwanted kiss from Trump when they were introduced at a Mother’s Day brunch at Mar-a-Lago. The incident occurred in front of her family. The Guardian reported:

“He took my hand, and grabbed me, and went for the lips,” she claimed.

Alarmed, she said she leaned backwards to avoid him and almost lost her balance. “And he said, ‘Oh, come on.’ He was strong. And he grabbed me and went for my mouth and went for my lips.” She turned her head, she claims, and Trump planted a kiss on the side of her mouth. “He kept me there for a little too long,” Heller said. “And then he just walked away.”
Since then: Heller attended the Women’s March on Washington on the day after Trump’s inauguration, rallying 43 people to reserve an entire train car from New York. “I like to think I’d be at a march in Washington, or at least locally in New York, even if it hadn’t happened to me,” she said.

Today she’s dismayed that despite all the sexual-harassment claims against Trump, “nothing stuck.” She told the Washington Post that she thinks things might have been different for Weinstein because his accusers were famous.

“A lot of them were actresses we’ve all heard of,” Heller said. “When it’s a celebrity, it has more weight than just someone who he met at Mar-a-Lago or a beauty-pageant contestant. They’re not people we’ve heard of. And that, in our society, has much more weight because they’re famous.”


Mindy McGillivray (2003)
The allegation: McGillivray said she was assisting photographer Ken Davidoff, who was taking photos during a Ray Charles concert at Mar-a-Lago, when Trump groped her butt. “I think it’s Ken’s camera bag, that was my first instinct. I turn around and there’s Donald. He sort of looked away quickly. I quickly turned back, facing Ray Charles, and I’m stunned.’’

Davidoff said moments later, McGillivray pulled him aside and said, ‘’Donald just grabbed my ass!’’


Since then: In October 2017, McGillivray told the Post that she was afraid of speaking out a year ago, but felt it was her patriotic duty. “What pisses me off is that the guy is president,” McGillivray said. “It’s that simple.”

Following the Roy Moore scandal, McGillivray said she was appalled that Republicans still weren’t acknowledging the allegations against the president. “It’s disturbing,” she told People, “that many of Trump’s diehard supporters are so stubborn that they can’t seem to come to terms with the reality that their president is just as guilty as Roy Moore.”

Natasha Stoynoff (2005)
The allegation: The journalist claimed that Trump pushed her against a wall and forced his tongue down her throat while giving her a tour of Mar-a-Lago. Stoynoff was working on a profile of the Trumps, and said that while waiting for Melania to arrive for an interview, Donald told her, “You know we’re going to have an affair, don’t you?”

She said he also referenced a New York Post cover published during his affair with Marla Maples. “You remember,” he said. “‘Best Sex I Ever Had.’”

Since then: In November 2017, Stoynoff told People she believes the allegations against Trump may have more power in the #MeToo era. “I feel this issue has been ‘on hold’ all year, but not forgotten,” Stoynoff said. “It’s been simmering on the stove with the lid on, like a pressure cooker. But now the heat’s on and it’s going to boil and the lid is going to blast off.”

Jennifer Murphy (2005)
The allegation: Murphy, a contestant in season four of The Apprentice, claimed Trump kissed her on the lips after a job interview. “He walked me to the elevator, and I said good-bye. I was thinking ‘Oh, he’s going to hug me’, but when he pulled my face in and gave me a smooch. I was like ‘Oh–kay.’ I didn’t know how to act. I was just a little taken aback and probably turned red. And I then I get into the elevator and thought ‘Huh, Donald Trump just kissed me on the lips.”’

Rachel Crooks (2005)
The allegation: Crooks encountered Trump outside an elevator in Trump Tower in 2005. At the time she was a 22-year-old receptionist at Bayrock Group, a real-estate investment and development company. She said she introduced herself and shook Trump’s hand, but he wouldn’t let go. He started kissing her cheeks and then “kissed me directly on the mouth.”

“It was so inappropriate,” Crooks told the New York Times. “I was so upset that he thought I was so insignificant that he could do that.”

Since then: Crooks recently told the Times that while she’s heartened to see sexual-harassment allegations being taken more seriously post-Weinstein, but sees a contrast in the response to Trump’s accusers. “You do wonder,” Crooks said, “how can the country forget about us?”

Ninni Laaksonen (2006)
The allegation: Laaksonen, a former Miss Finland, said Trump grabbed her butt while they were being photographed before an appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman. “Trump stood right next to me and suddenly he squeezed my butt. He really grabbed my butt,” she said. “I don’t think anybody saw it but I flinched and thought: ‘What is happening?’”

Jessica Drake (2006)
The allegation: Drake, an adult film performer and director, said she and two friends went to Trump’s hotel room after meeting him at a golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, California. “He grabbed each of us tightly, in a hug and kissed each one of us without asking permission,” she said.

She said they left about a half-hour later; then Trump called her and invited her to go to dinner or a party with him. When she declined, he asked, “What do you want? How much?” She said she received a second call offering her $10,000 and the use of Trump’s private jet if she agreed to sleep with him.

Since then: Drake was among the four accusers who held a press conference on the day of the Women’s March on Washington.

“Like many, I am horrified by the potential upcoming administration and fear the consequences it will have,” she said in January. “I want to use my platform to speak for others who cannot and join voices with those who can and who march with me here today.”

Summer Zervos (2007)
The allegation: Zervos, a contestant on the fifth season of The Apprentice, said she approached Trump about a potential job at his company. She claimed that during their first meeting at Trump Tower, he kissed her twice on the mouth and asked for her phone number.

Weeks later, he invited her to meet him at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles. She was escorted to Trump’s room, and said he asked her to sit next to him. “He then grabbed my shoulder and began kissing me very aggressively and placed his hand on my breast,” she recalled. Zervos said she pushed Trump away and told him to stop.

“He then grabbed my hand and pulled me into the bedroom,” she said. “He grabbed me in an embrace, and I tried to push him away.”

Zervos said when she protested, Trump “repeated my words back to me as he began thrusting his genitals.”

She still sought employment at the Trump Organization and believed she wasn’t given a job because she rejected his advances.

Since then: Three days before Trump was inaugurated, Zervos filed a defamation suit against him. It alleges that in response to the accusations she made during the election, Trump “debased and denigrated Ms. Zervos with false statements about her,” referring to his claims that all of his accusers were liars looking for “ten minutes of fame.”

“In doing so, he used his national and international bully pulpit to make false factual statements to denigrate and verbally attack Ms. Zervos and the other women who publicly reported his sexual assaults in October 2016,” the lawsuit said.

A judge’s ruling on whether the case can proceed in New York State Supreme Court may come by the end of the year. Zervos’s lawyers have subpoenaed “all documents concerning any woman who asserted that Donald J. Trump touched her inappropriately.”

Trump’s attorneys have sought to have the case dismissed, arguing that the president can’t be sued in state court, and that his comments amounted to protected political speech.

Cassandra Searles (2013)
The accusation: In June 2016, Searles, Miss Washington 2013, tagged her former competitors in a Facebook post that read: “Do y’all remember that one time we had to do our onstage introductions, but this one guy treated us like cattle and made us do it again because we didn’t look him in the eyes? Do you also remember when he then proceeded to have us lined up so he could get a closer look at his property?”

Many of the women said they did, and in one reply Searles added, “He probably doesn’t want me telling the story about that time he continually grabbed my ass and invited me to his hotel room.”



Republicans and their voters continually prove their duplicity and lack of consistency. Their position re: recent/breaking sex scandals is just one of the current examples.

Perhaps because the middle eastern society they've created, which has all the attributes above, has an even higher rate of sexual assault than our more decadent one.

logic escapes.

the united states is not the middle east. it doesn't follow that the results of a circumstance in one country/culture will be repeated in another.

There's a reason that in the law declarations against interest are given an aura of credibility and treated differently than normal hearsay.

But, I suppose it is reasonable to assume that Trump is such an inveterate liar and braggart that no one should ever believe a damn thing he says. That would really be the only reason to disregard his unequivocal confession of deviant behavior.

In which event one need only go to the long record compiled by CTH. The same conclusion is inescapable.

Either way, it's obvious that Trump is the true "sex pervert" (your term). So again, I assume you must agree that Congress should do its duty and "fire" him, right?

I'm just saying that having the things Glenn describes are not proof against sexual assault, nor do they necessarily decrease its likelihood.

There are some highly religious, tightly knit communities right in this country with higher than typical rates of rape and sexual abuse, including in some Amish and Morman communities. You don't need to look to the Middle East. I don't see evidence of any correlation between "extended families", "community morals" and "immersion in a strong matrix of religious training" and avoidance of such conduct. It's a convenient assumption, but one seemingly lacking a factual foundation.

Heck, look at Roy Moore and his followers. They're all about "communities" and "religious training" and simultaneously, it seems about knocking up young girls and excusing it.

Evidently, that's the only way to have big families is to start them young, or so I've read recently from Moore's defenders.

Geraldo Rivera apologizes to Bette Midler after groping allegations

Quote:
Geraldo Rivera has offered an apology to Bette Midler in light of her resurfaced groping accusations, but he did not outright admit to any sexual misconduct.

“27 years ago I wrote a tawdry book depicting consensual events in 1973 — 45 years ago. I’ve deeply regretted its distasteful & disrespectful tone & have refrained from speaking about it — I’m embarrassed & profoundly sorry to those mentioned — I have & again apologize to anyone offended,” Rivera wrote in a series of tweets posted on Friday.

Danny Masterson off 'The Ranch' amid rape allegations

Quote:
"As a result of ongoing discussions, Netflix and the producers have written Danny Masterson out of The Ranch," a Netflix spokesman said in a statement to CNN Tuesday. "Yesterday was his last day on the show, and production will resume in early 2018 without him."

Masterson said in a statement to CNN that he is "obviously very disappointed in Netflix's decision to write my character off of The Ranch."

"From day one, I have denied the outrageous allegations against me. Law enforcement investigated these claims more than 15 years ago and determined them to be without merit," Masterson continued in his statement. "I have never been charged with a crime, let alone convicted of one. In this country, you are presumed innocent until proven guilty. However, in the current climate, it seems as if you are presumed guilty the moment you are accused."

The former "That '70s Show" actor added, "I understand and look forward to clearing my name once and for all." Masterson went on to thank the cast and crew he worked with on "The Ranch."

Terry Crews Sues WME Agent Adam Venit for Sexual Assault

Quote:
Terry Crews has filed a sexual assault lawsuit against WME agent Adam Venit in regards to Crews’ claim that Venit groped him at a Hollywood party in February 2016.

News of the lawsuit comes a little more than a week after Venit returned to work at WME following a brief suspension as the agency conducted an internal investigation of Crews’ allegations. Crews was previously represented by WME, which is also a defendant in the suit, but fired the agency last month after going public with his claims.


Quote:
The lawsuit argues that WME should have known that Venit was “unskilled, unfit, and unable to appropriately carry out the legal and other duties of a talent agent, and knew that he was reasonably likely to engage in the conduct herein” before he was hired.

Crews had previously filed a report with the Los Angeles Police Department in regards to the alleged assault. He first went public with his story on Oct. 10, shortly after the New York Times and New Yorker ran bombshell sexual harassment exposés about Harvey Weinstein.

Head Of National Enquirer, Us Weekly Reportedly Accused Of Sexual Misconduct

Quote:
The top editor of several popular tabloids, including the National Enquirer and Us Weekly, has been accused of sexual misconduct, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.

Former employees of American Media Inc., which owns seven tabloids, told the AP that Dylan Howard, the chief content officer of the AMI Celebrity Group, openly discussed his sex life, talked about female employees’ sex lives and forced women to watch or listen to pornographic material while he managed the company’s Los Angeles office.

Howard left AMI after it launched an investigation into his behavior in 2012. He was soon rehired with a promotion and currently works out of the company’s New York office. He was appointed the editor-in-chief of the National Enquirer and vice president of news in 2014, according to company press releases. This October, he was promoted to chief content officer of the AMI Celebrity Group.

“Dylan has been a driving force behind much of the success that AMI has enjoyed in recent years in the celebrity group,” AMI CEO David J. Pecker said in a press release at the time.

Danny Masterson off 'The Ranch' amid rape allegations

Quote:
"As a result of ongoing discussions, Netflix and the producers have written Danny Masterson out of The Ranch," a Netflix spokesman said in a statement to CNN Tuesday. "Yesterday was his last day on the show, and production will resume in early 2018 without him."

Masterson said in a statement to CNN that he is "obviously very disappointed in Netflix's decision to write my character off of The Ranch."

"From day one, I have denied the outrageous allegations against me. Law enforcement investigated these claims more than 15 years ago and determined them to be without merit," Masterson continued in his statement. "I have never been charged with a crime, let alone convicted of one. In this country, you are presumed innocent until proven guilty. However, in the current climate, it seems as if you are presumed guilty the moment you are accused."

The former "That '70s Show" actor added, "I understand and look forward to clearing my name once and for all." Masterson went on to thank the cast and crew he worked with on "The Ranch."

This one made me really sad.

I got to tell you. Someday the LA County DA's office is going to have hell to pay. Maybe not in my lifetime. But someday.

Yesterday, far from that someday, Ashley Judd said that after women encounter assault or harassment by men in the entertainment business, "Were we supposed to call some fantasy attorney general of moviedom?"

No. But women should have been able to dial 911 and call the police. A famous actress, in a town where name recognition opens ALL doors, should have been able to contact the DA's office and get the ball(s) -sorry- rolling.

If I saw a young woman walking down the street right where I live and I approached her, blocked her way, made crude advances to her, she could and would call the police on me and I would be arrested. If I made an afternoon of it I'd be behind bars for sure. But these men, Harvey, countless others, they did this shit, even raping actresses, with impunity for the better part of a century. And there's really been nothing in the annals of law enforcement that can claim to have even made an effort to stop any of it.


SO MUCH so that an actress like Ashley Judd, who was famous 20 years ago, can say, in 2017, "Were we supposed to call some fantasy attorney general of moviedom?" Shocked

New lawsuit alleges director Bryan Singer raped a 17-year-old boy

Quote:
In a lawsuit filed Thursday in Washington state, Cesar Sanchez-Guzman says the incident happened in 2003 when he attended a party on a yacht in the Seattle area. Sanchez-Guzman was 17 at the time.

The civil suit, obtained by USA TODAY, claims Singer offered to take Sanchez-Guzman on a tour of the yacht. When they arrived at one of the rooms, the suit alleges Singer "forced Cesar to the floor, shoved Cesar’s face against his crotch area and demanded Cesar perform oral sex on him." The suit says Singer then forcibly anally penetrated Sanchez-Guzman.

Singer later promised he would help Sanchez-Guzman in Hollywood if he didn't tell anyone what had happened, the suit says.

The allegation hits the same week Singer was fired from his film Bohemian Rhapsody, which has been filming in London.

This story is very strange. I think there has to be more to it than is being reported.
