I don't follow a lot of this so I never heard of her. Who is she, and what's the deal with her writing this story?

this makes me feel old. she got famous in the 90s for her nyt columns about the lewinsky scandal (i think she even won the pulitzer).

she's always been a poor writer that's why i never understood (ignoring subject matter) how she became famous.

tho david brooks somehow still collects a paycheck for his inane drivel.

I suppose the larger question that goes unanswered is "why were so many people on the wrong side of the Polanski thing" 10 years ago? It's not like people thought raping children was good in 2007.

there was a sizable polanski defense squad in this very sub years back. not so much that what he did wasn't bad but that the judge was a big meanie for possibly rejecting the deal (which he should've, it was a poo poo deal) so polanski was justified in fleeing. their argument tended to be it was a one off thing but they never had a response when someone would bring up that after polanski fled to europe he started loving a 15 year old.

I don't know, I think at this point it's come screaming off the rails on fire. It's lost it's focus, half the stories now are ridiculously pathetic or mild compared to anything that has come before, etc. It's turned into a "say X is bad and X is ruined the end" bullshit, even if the reasoning is questionable. I cannot nor ever will be able to file "asked to bone, said no, left, no problems after" with "threatened, drug, bully or physical force."

Frankly the fact the Aziz Ansari was the moment it really went completely sideways. A bad date and some lovely game is not rape but somehow #MeToo takes every single level single thing and throws them all in the one-and-only rape pile, black & white with no sense of scale.

#MeToo started good but at this point is a raging dumpster fire the legitimate victims are trapped in with a ton of political bullshit now. Also looking it up it sounds like McGowan was mostly angry with #TimesUp, not #MeToo, which seems like a pretty blatant attempt to get a bunch of dudes off the hook for wearing a stupid pin and donating a few dollars to put out the fires.

women having to deal with bad sex, while not as bad as rape, is still a massive issue. look at any survey about positive or negative experiences with hooking up.

Bust Rodd posted:

So this thing that dramatically impacted my family for years is a real world example of someone believing they were sexually assaulted when in fact they were not. I honestly donít give a poo poo if you believe me, and I canít wait for someone to twist this around into me saying all victims are crazy or liars (Iím not), Iím just saying itís possible and it happens and treating me like a rape sympathizer because of my experience and the way it informs my view is unnecessarily antagonistic, even if you donít like it.

it happens but amounts to something like 2 percent of all accusations and it's more like .2 percent if you factor in all the rapes that aren't reported.

In regards to the whole "having racist friends" thing in the UK, I don't you can really judge Radcliffe as a person over that poo poo. If I were to immediately cut contact with any racists I know, I would lose a good half of my customer base at work and disown some extremely old friends of mine who honestly are not racist because of their life experiences as such but rather because they were raised in an ignorant environment and its more learned behavior than horrible violent racists. Hell, if you ask them most of them will have friends from a wide spectrum of backgrounds and racial histories and will say stupid poo poo like "Oh yeah, That guys okay" but still will otherwise say stupid poo poo because that's how some of them were dragged up.

They are not really as bad people as it might sound, and often are just parroting poo poo their parents said. Its far better to actually engage with those sorts rather than to just let them sit in a loving bubble where they never have their view points challenged.

i don't talk to my brother because he's a big trump guy now. once you're a grown up you don't get to go "oh i was raised that way".

A Buttery Pastry posted:

I think it makes a lot of sense to gradate like that, if you want to be able to distinguish better between anonymized celebrities. Plus the gradation itself mirrors the American grading system, so it seems as sensible and easily understandable as any other suggestion? Contrary to an A/B/C/D/E/F/G/H/I/J/K/L-list system would clash horribly with the more general idea of A/B/C/D-list celebrities used outside the site itself.

i think a/b/c/d (and z if you wanna be real mean) works fine.

I've seen a number of articles about men who have spent time in prison who have their cases overturned when the person who accused them of rape are overheard saying it never happened.

I'm sure actual sexual assaults occur on a monumentally higher frequency than false accusations that ruin men's lives, but it does happen.

apart from the duke case and that rolling stone article there's the sorta well known case of high school football player brian banks:

quote:

After being falsely accused of rape by a classmate, he spent more than five years in prison and five years on strict custody parole, but had his conviction overturned in 2012 after his accuser admitted she had fabricated the entire story. Following his exoneration, Banks sought to resume his football career, playing for the now defunct United Football League (UFL), attending mini-camps for several NFL teams, and later signing with the Atlanta Falcons.

but then we got starting qbs in the nfl who definitely sexually assaulted people and never faced a second of punishment for it.

something like 2/3 of rapes are never even reported.
