Yeah, there's a sentiment out there that "if it's ok for Trump/Moore and the GOP, it should be ok for us!" which is completely missing the entire horsefeathering point.

I guess the point I was trying to make is... do you really expect 100% of liberals to be level headed, awesome all around people? Of course you don't. Its Tom Arnold. If this were thoughts shared by Jon Stewart or David Letterman or a celebrity people actually care about, then Id share your concern.

Sadly, Arnold's tweet was one of the more levelheaded defenses of Franken along those lines.

And the celebrity part is irrelevant, so that's your thing, my man.

Man, I finally got to hear Franken's resignation statement (in no way whatsoever was that any kind of an apology)....what a crock of complete horsefeathers. Homeboy had the balls to end it like this:

“This has been a tough few weeks, but I am a very lucky man. I’m going to be just fine.”


Good horsefeathering riddance.

Oh.

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/br ... mg00000009

Director Bryan Singer has been accused of raping a teenage boy at a yacht party in 2003, according to a lawsuit filed Thursday.

The lawsuit alleges that Singer led Cesar Sanchez-Guzman, then 17, into a bedroom under the pretense of giving him a tour of the yacht. The suit says Singer then locked the door and forced the teen to perform oral sex on him before raping Sanchez-Guzman.

More on Weinstein from Salma Hayek . Grotesque stuff in here.

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/201 ... d=fb-share

No to me taking a shower with him.

No to letting him watch me take a shower.

No to letting him give me a massage.

No to letting a naked friend of his give me a massage.

No to letting him give me oral sex.

No to my getting naked with another woman.

No, no, no, no, no …

And with every refusal came Harvey’s Machiavellian rage.


The range of his persuasion tactics went from sweet-talking me to that one time when, in an attack of fury, he said the terrifying words, “I will kill you, don’t think I can’t.”

Parkins (Perkins?). On the score this morning says he’s hearing from people who know that a ESPN story/allegations is coming that’s bigger (worse? not right word but you get it) than the NFLN stuff and with more well known names.

I have a feeling that someone is going to be falling BACKBACKBACKBACKBACK on some pretty lame excuses.

We need to talk about drugging


Non-consensual drugging is a common factor in sexual assault, particularly within the music industry. To denormalize abusive behavior, it’s time we faced up to that.


“On many campuses, there's a heavy binge-drinking culture,” she told me. “So if somebody goes to the hospital and said, ‘I think I've been drugged,’ I think the response often is, ‘Oh, you just drank too much, let's get you some fluids, you'll be fine in a few hours.’ So I think it's a very easy behavior to hide if you're somebody who wants to drug somebody — it's unlikely that you're really going to get caught or held accountable for it.”

In 2016, Dr. Swan and her colleagues published the findings of a study they’d conducted. Over the course of three years, they sent an online survey to a randomly generated sample of students at three universities in the U.S., asking if they had been drugged that academic year, or if, during the same time period, they had drugged someone else or knew a drugging perpetrator. (The response rate was 38.7% and the total number of students in the final dataset was 6,064.)

According to the study’s results, an estimated 1 in 13 college students report experiencing at least one incident in which they know or suspect someone put a drug in their drink without their knowledge.

The results also provided insight into drugging motivations. 83 students said that they, or someone else they knew, had put a drug in someone’s drink without their knowledge. The range of reasons they gave for such behavior was wide: for “fun,” to try to “calm” someone down, revenge on a partner, and sexual assault.

I just had a Title IX hearing where the complainant blacked out after drinking and I was shocked that drugging never came up. It seemed to have a lot of signs that it may have happened, but the complainant never brought it up.
