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...

Re: #MeToo

The only "nuance" you guys are shooting for here is, "how can we let Aziz off the hook so we can watch the next season of Master of None without being distracted?" If this was about some hack like Dane Cook or Jeff Foxworthy I'd doubt we be seeing so many measured treatises abou...

Re: #MeToo

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...

Re: #MeToo

Yeah, the grey area that people desperately want to be a thing doesn't exist here; the dude had his mind made up and he was going to make it happen regardless of her saying no multiple times and physically trying to stop what he was doing. But,Imean, he didn't make "it" happen. So? Just b...

"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...
