DetrimentalNoscript doesn't work with it yet though. So it's like having sex without a condom when you're using the new FF.

What's sex without a condom like Det?

I don't know why I need to know what it's like for me to make that analogy.

It might help your analogy make sense, though.
Having sex without a condom can be much more pleasurable...is that the point you're trying to make

Condoms prevent viruses whilst doing something pleasurable, similar to noscript. This isn't rocket science.

Is Chlamydia a virus? How about gonorrhea or syphilis?

Maybe those aren't, but I hear that HIV is a fucking virus. And that's just semantics anyways they're infections. Just admit the analogy flew over your head.

I WILL admit that I'm just fuckin' with you because I think your posts are stupid. ?

Just playing "What if..."

If the #metoo had started last year, if woman had found their courage/voices following "The Access Hollywood tape", Donald Trump wouldn't be president today.Being accused of being a serial sexual abuser would have made him too radioactive to be elected.

I wonder if part of the current backlash this year is women (and men) finally saying, "ENOUGH!" because they see that remaining silent slowed Trump to skate.I think that the days of simply dismissing accusers are over (and Trump looks like the last beneficiary of our indifference).

NimChimpskyMan, look at this right wing loon! http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_factor/2017/11/16/it_s_astonishing_that_it_took_this_long_for_the_bill_clinton_moment_of_reckoning.html

" Caitlin Flanagan published an essay in the Atlantic arguing that it?s time for liberals to reassess Bill Clinton's moral legacy."

I did this already, years ago, and I'm still amazed at how Clinton apologists just let him get away with what he did. In my opinion, a direct line can be drawn from Clinton to Trump.
"...welp...if we're willing to overlook bad behavior for policies we like...". Democrats did this in the 90s...Republicans did it last year.

It's doesn't look like Franken is actually touching her (which is only? relevant in a criminal case), but he should resign (and honestly explain why he did what he did -- why he thought that was a good move).

PaquitoJerry Jones, rebuked.

Jones and Goodell are both awful human beings. Most of the rest of the NFL owners probably are too. It's a pathetic spectacle.

It's hard for me to?think that those two people are equal levels of awful.?Jerry Jones is a special breed of terrible.

In 1990, a female co-worker pinched my ass while we were riding in a crowded elevator. I was surprised (never thought anyone would be interested in my ass), angry (cause I don't look to be touch -- certainly not by strangers) and embarrassed ('cause it happened in front of a lot of people who laughed about it) when it first happened. I turned around trying to see who did it and the perpetrator (someone I knew) was smiling at me. I just let it go 'cause it wasn't that big of a deal really, she was joking around (just wanted to startle me, I guess) and she never showed any actual interest in me.

Was it a violation? Yep. If the roles have been reversed and I had grabbed HER (a white woman's) ass -- even as part of a joke -- I would have been fired before the elevator doors opened. And since this was a one-off situation (this never happened to be again), I see my situation as very different from a woman who is dealing with stuff like this on a much more consistent basis.

In 2017 (depending on where you live and what you're company does, of course...) if you're consistently sitting in meetings and their are only white men in those meetings with you, your lack of diversity is almost intentional. You don't have to "go out of your way" to have a more diverse work force, just be aware of your prejudices (we ALL have them) during your hiring process. The talent is out there and they're applying for the jobs (everyone wants to work at Google), so if you're missing them, it might be something that you ( the folks in charge of hiring) are doing.

When I ruptured my Achilles' tendon. It ft as if my heel broke off (I simply couldn't feel it any more). I realize that some injuries are more severe than ofhers, ?but it always amazes me when someone walks on a torn Achilles.?

MeowIt's hard not to, but I'm gonna give into to my "I hate all straight people" impulse right now. You guys are terrible.

I hope this is entirely 100% you joking and you don't really have such an impulse.

Of course I'm joking but if you were gay, you'd hate straight people too. Trust me. You guys are awful.

I know you're joking, and -- man -- I get it.

Roy Moote is going to retain a high level of support because:

1. He has an "R" next to his name and partisans are going to partisan.?

2. He "drives the left crazy" -- which really seems to motivate a lot of the right.?

3. He'll cloak himself in Jesus (as will his surrogates). Reminds me of how members of the clergy circled the wagons in support of Bill Clinton and Jease Jackson in their respective scandals. Clinton suddenly began being ?shown walking out of church (clutching a bible) every Sunday and he kept having meetings with pastors for "spiritual guidance". ?

Jackson's supporters continually lectured those who would speak ill of the good reverend by quoting scripture, "let he among you ?who is without sin cast the first stone". How about those of is who have not embezzled money to pay ouri mistress to keep our affair (and her pregnancy) call for him to go to prison (no charges were filed).?

4. The right rarely flips out when one of their own is involved with an underaged girl. They'll smash Muslims becuase Muhammad was a pedophile, but completely look past what went on (sexually) in their own good book. Older men with really young women is only natural.?

Roy Moore is a terrible person who does and says terrible things and yet he wins a lot of elections. ?

Esoteric AllusionI'm still worried that Trump is blazing the path for smarter Trump 10-20 years into the future.

The idea that his destruction isn't coming into fruition because of his stupidity kind of ignores the fact that he's done a great job of delegitimizing the free press in the eyes of millions of Americans, which is bad in its own right, even if it doesn't result in the "smart Trump" scenario that it would help to create.?

Delegitimizing the free press has already been done for him by years of right wing media, so he doesn't really deserve credit on that front. The worst thing Trump has done in this regard isn't the delegitimization, but the normalization of the idea that a President himself can openly attack the free press and call for it to be silenced.

And I'm not saying there's no destruction. There's plenty of destruction. But it's a lot less than it would be if Trump were at all competent.

Don't look past the fact that Bernie Sanders also fed into the "media is corrupt" narrative.
Nov 8, 2017 11:28 PM
theVictorianI don't want to find the post in which I said Trump's awfulness might ultimately be a good thing by provoking a revolt, but it looks like it did.

Didn't you also post that the energy behind the so-called "resistance" (I believe it was in the wake of the Women's March)?would only last a few months?

Esoteric AllusionNortham is going to win Virginia. So that's a state that won't see the Republican field-tilting policies in the next four years.

That could have been devastating for presidential elections in the 20s--and there were still purity test leftists angrily abandoning Northam within the last week because he tacked to the center in a general election in a purple state. Some day the left may realize that they reason they control ~40% of government with 55% support is because they don't understand how to do politics.

Amen.
The "if I can't have everything I want, then I'll take nothing" approach is just silly.

NimChimpskyI think part of the problem is that we act like mass shootings are some huge issue. They aren't. The likelihood that you or someone you know will ever be injured or killed by a mass shooter is miniscule. We shouldn't base policy on stopping rare, aberrant acts. That's bad thinking in any policy area.

I feel the same way about Radical Islamist terrorist attacks. I feel that my chances of getting caught up in a random mass shooting (while small) are much greater than being killed in a terrorist attack.

And yet, we have based policy (and set fire to a lot of money) in this ongoing 'War on Terror".

Gotta admit that it's hard to look at a situation where almost 30 people are killed for doing nothing other than sitting in a church and not think, "man...we should be able to do something to keep things like this from happening again" -- although we may not be able to pass a law that will make a damn bit of difference.

We could say, "Let's make semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity magazines illegal".? That might reduce the numbers of people killed, but someone who is determined to kill a lot of people, probably wouldn't let those new rules stop them.? Plus, not all mass shootings are created equally. Sure, we read about the ones where someone (seemingly) snaps and shoots up a church, or concert or school or movie theater, but a lot of them involve someone going off and killing someone they know (along with anyone else who might be in the room).? There are as many stories that involve a man showing up at his estranged wife's place of employment and shooting anyone who happens to be there as there are stories of someone who decided to "go hunt some humans" (a mass shooter in 1984 was reported to have said that) and shooting a bunch of strangers.? Would the same laws be required to stop both all types of shooters? Probably not.

There are folks in the U.S. who? seem to think that a gun is the best tool to use when settling problems. How do we change that?

(sorry my thoughts are so random).

Esoteric AllusionI don't agree with theVic that the only way to respond to this involves witch hunts getting started. I'd like to think he'd reword that if given a chance. There's lots that can be done.

There has been a worry in the back of my mind that this focus on sexual harassment and calling out perpetrators will result in a witch hunt atmosphere against innocent people.

Woody Allen responded to this story by saying he was sad for Harvey Weinstein and cautioning against witch hunts. I agreed 100%. He meant that he was sad that Weinstein was a broken person, which it is. He meant we have to be careful that righteous outrage and the desire to do something doesn't become a witchhunt, which we do. But the reaction to his comments was mostly, "Shut the fuck up, you child molesting rape apologist." That made me feel a bit cautious about making similar comments.

As far as the other stuff goes, get a grip people.


By "broken" do you mean, "broken down by this scandal" or "so broken emotionally/mentally that he treats women the way he's accused of doing"?
Nov 6, 2017 3:02 AM
DetrimentalIt's not impossible that there are some innocent people getting caught up in the wave, Zuben. It's unlikely that there will be many (if any at all) in the first wave. But this whole situation can lead to another situation where innocent men are getting accused of sexual harassment because it's so easy to accuse them of it and be believed.

Seriously, where are you getting this? Just because something is possible (and damn near anything is possible), doesn't mean that it's at all probable.

I wasn't really agreeing with thevictorian with the whole 'witch hunts' thing. I was just giving you a reason he might have come to that conclusion. Also while a woman might not come to a place of employment looking to falsely accuse men, they still might falsely accuse them after getting rejected too many times in the workplace. Why? To get money of a settlement or w/e. Not all women are angels. I think the best thing to do is to just treat every case seriously as possible, but with the amount of money involved with these guys its going to be very hard to do.

What do you mean here:

"...getting rejected too many times" while doing what, exactly? Are you saying that women will go to their place of employment, hit on men and then accuse them of sexual harassment if their advances aren't reciprocated? Or are you saying that women will accuse their superiors of improper conduct if they're passed over for promotions too often?

Either way, where are you getting this? Do you have any information for how often this happens? How many situations are there where a woman makes a claim of sexual harassment out of whole cloth? Not all women are angels, that's true, but is the number of women who would do such a thing so high that it makes taking accusations seriously difficult.
