Autzen porking lot POTDI've been on both sides arguing for and against accused rapists and harassers. The truth is typically pretty complicated.Federal EEO policy and law says that what you describe above is against the law.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.Painful mis stepsAlso 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.
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.
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
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.§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.
Like where, for instance? I don't recall ever seeing more homeless people than I have in democrat run cities in perma blue states. Some of these shitholes look as bad as the train station in Bucharest. Their platform of being the party that cares about the poor is a complete sham, just like their platform of being the party that cares about women is.What about all the places run by Dems that are doing great? Or is there something I'm missing?As of last year 1 in 5 homes in Detroit is vacant. As with all places there are some nice areas and not so nice areas, but in Detroit the latter far outweighs the former. And I'm sure it can be considered "undervalued", but that is only because it's at rock bottom.Got me curious so I checked Redfin for homes under 50K in Detroit city limits. Got 350 hitsWhat I've read is that Detroit is now officially "undervalued," as real estate there is so much less than surrounding areas and the nation as a whole. And there's kind of a hipster revival thing going on where young people are moving in, taking advantage of one of the few urban areas in the country with affordable housing stock.
Did the same search in Seattle and got ZERO results.
I think the larger point originally was that if there was some REAL hope for Detroit on the horizon some fund would buy all 350 of those and more because the return would be huge if there were a revival.
20 - 30 years ago you could buy in the CD in Seattle for under 50K. It was a good value obviously.
The IE was bought up and sold again after the 08 crash.
I'm not sure what would bring value back to Detroit but follow the money and you may or may not find out.
The Quicken Loans guy seems to be involved as well.
I've only ever changed planes there.
And one of the main reasons why is because it's been run by a bunch of folks like Conyer's wife...
