  • Re: youre tellin me the guy who produced this likes to 'kiss and make inappropriate comments?'

    Painful mis steps

    For fucks sake. I an beginning to agree that Louis CK will be the only one who gets away with it because he said what the fuck of course I'm a degenerate.

    Case closed

    All this hand wringing after years of coke fueled romps with starlets is plain old fashioned bull shit

    Men are motivated by sex, money, and sex. And the motivation for money is to get sex
    Also add aspiring starlets/journalists continually put themselves in positions whereby they looked to males for 'help' in their respective careers. So give back all those Emmys and Grammys and Oscars garnered by 'meeting' with 'powerful' men in their hotel rooms. Give me a break.

    This has been/always will be a two way street. The faux outrage is laughable. Cock teases gonna cock tease.

    Not saying rape is acceptable. Don't twist.

    Hard to rationally argue with that. When an exchange of power consensually takes place, there really is no abuse. However, arguing that in the court of public opinion, or in an actual court for that matter, is likely to be met with shrill opposition followed by epic failure. The narrative will always be that the person with the hiring/financial/political power is the predator and the person willing to use their own power, sexual or otherwise, to gain favor is the prey. All that said, in many of these recent cases, it has been the unwilling being preyed upon or intimidated by the powerful. Not cool. Rape or no rape not cool, but especially beyond not cool to downright criminal when rape is the outcome.
    Federal EEO policy and law says that what you describe above is against the law.
    §1604.11 Sexual harassment.

    (a) Harassment on the basis of sex is a violation of section 703 of title VII.1 Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when (1) submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual's employment, (2) submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for employment decisions affecting such individual, or (3) such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual's work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment.
    My spouse was involved in a situation like that. The next day (after I threatened to kill the motherfucker), she walked down to HR, filed a complaint and the guy was placed on administrative leave and was subsequently terminated.

    The law is there for a reason. Use it. Go to HR, file a complaint. Don't trump up shit 10, 20, 30 years later. That's cowardly.


    What if it's not trumped up, but held in confidence for other reasons? I get what you're saying, it could be cowardly to hold back on something like this for years, but what if the industry you're in is so corrupt in this regard that going to HR simply get's you black listed? I don't think it's a stretch to say that a lot of these women had no real choice, or at least felt they were in positions that provided no real choice.

    The Salem Witch Trials ended when the governors wife was accused. This auto-da-fé or auto-de-fé seems to have more steam, twatterverse and all that, but it will likely end the same way, when the "wrong" person or persons are accused. That said, so far, many of these fuck sticks are simply experiencing an overdue comeuppance. popcorn.gif.

  • Re: Charles Manson sells the jail cot

    If hell exists, this bitch will be waiting for him there.

    It's guys like this that made me wish it (Hell) did exist. I don't think the death penalty is much of a deterrent, but I wish we could bring back the gallows for POS's like Manson. Fuck life in prison.
    The death penalty is not about deterrence. It's about that which you imply. Life in prison does not justice bring in cases such as these.

  • Re: Conyers has some problems...

    For someone whining in another thread about people not understanding Texas you are quick to defend a town where you can buy a house for less than a car.

    Welcome to last week's conversation. Where I mentioned that real estate was booming, relatively speaking, in Detroit. The cooger saw a twitpic of Detroit looking shitty and got all het up. Facts is facts, Jack.
    Detroit proper is an utter shit hole. Grosse Pointe, Grosse Point Farms, Grosse Pointe Shores, Bloomfield Hills, etc, not so much. HTH

  • Re: Rondeau's Winning FG call and Huard's post FG blather. Something to love and hate at the same time.

    "they got a timeout to burn, I'm sure they'll use it..... maybe not....." (Rondeau remembering why he's retiring)
    He had his bases covered
    He will be missed. Rondeau, not Huard.
    Why is he retiring? Best job in Seattle.
    For the best of reasons

    "People say, ‘You’re not old enough to retire,’’ he said. “The fact is, I am old enough to retire. I’ve been telling people, I’m old enough to retire, and young enough to enjoy it. That’s the plan.”

    https://www.seattletimes.com/sports/uw-huskies/bob-rondeau-content-with-decision-to-retire-as-voice-of-the-huskies/
    He doesn't want to be like Bob Robertson.
    Ya, Robertson could have hung up his cleats a few years earlier than he did. To each his own. He had one hell of a run and was still in control of his faculties when he "retired" at 84. Good on him.
