Re: podcast thread

Jesus Christ; Dougboys tends to turn pretty unbearable in the wake of a new SW movie coming out. I really hope they are able to stick to leaving all the Star Wars talk in the doubles. I want nothing to do with any of what Mitch has to say about it or his awesome arguments where he just screams YOUR...

Re: #MeToo

Yeah, I will cop to being salty as hell taking shots at people saying they just wanted to defend Aziz because they like him; I think that's part of it, but I agree that I think the thing that sticks with so many people is that this is a situation they've been in plenty of times or could easily see t...

Re: #MeToo

Man, unless it's Deadspin I am not even bothering to check out the comments on a Gawker/Univision site these days. The top comment right now, in terms of stars received. This coming from what is generally the most pro-feminist part of the site. This was a bad date. She had a horrible date with a cl...

Ideally he did what he said in his statement and after she let him know he looked back on what happened and realized where he went too far.

Re: #MeToo

https://www.vox.com/identities/2018/1/16/16894722/aziz-ansari-grace-babe-me-too But what she describes — a man repeatedly pushing sex without noticing (or without caring about) what she wants — is something many, many women have experienced in encounters with men. And while few men have committed t...

Re: #MeToo

Look, we're all working off of the same description of what happened, but if that is what happened then this insistence by these editorials that poor Aziz couldn't possibly have deciphered her cryptic comments and actions like she sounded like one of the adults from a Peanuts cartoon rings so damn i...

But,Imean, he didn't make "it" happen. So? Just because he didn't seal the deal doesn't mean he didn't cross lines many times over. But your premise is false. Oh, come on; he's relatively off the hook because he "only" was able push her to a certain point after repeated attempts...

Re: #MeToo

like he absolutely should not have been continuing to pursue sex with her at this point, but i also don't believe that this rises to the level of sexual assault, which is a prosecutable crime. Again, the idea that this kind of thing is only to be called out if it's a clear cut crime is faulty and y...

"Murky?" There's absolutely nothing murky about what's described there. This continued false equivalency of, "oh, we have to be sure to be careful with dudes we like who commit sexual assault/harassment so that we're not confusing them with rapists because they're the REAL bad guys,&q...

Re: #MeToo

Because that's a common reaction to this kind of thing; it's why there's often little to no evidence of a struggle in more aggravated cases of sexual assault because people basically fall into a sense of, "OK, if I just let this happen then it'll be over sooner." Just getting up and trying...
