Talk about protecting the group politic. How is this slush fund even legal ?

The rational is that many workplaces have a liability fund, legal costs, and that it often comes out of the employees pay checks and/or is passed on to the customer in pricing of service or the product. I'm not saying it's right, the hush fun is for different settlements as a whole. As it turns out, it has been used the most it would seem for sexual complaints of different kinds.

But the system will be changed soon. The reporting protocol is changing, I don't think the confidentiality will change much, but the offender will hopefully be paying out the settlement unless it's a campus related problem. Because, yea, obviously it's really infuriating to hear about this, but this was first reported I think 5-6 years ago, the fund that is. Until this Weinstein effect started, there was no real urgency to change anything on the Hill.

When Senators Ted Kennedy and Chris Dodd, both Dems, made what they called a "waitress sandwich" without bothering to get consent from the waitress first, I don't recall the US Senate demanding that they step down from office. Some of the Senators demanding that Roy Moore, Al Franken et. al step aside were in the Senate when all of that happened.

The danger taking place here is that sexual harassment, sexual assault, and rape are being placed in the same category. Sexual-harassment is horrible. It is un acceptable. But it should not be placed in the same category, and punished the same way, as assault and rape. Case in point, Pres. Trump is now commonly referred to as a sexual assaulter, based on the tape of him mentioning grabbing women by the pussy. First of all he was only talking about it and not referring to having done it. So now the libturds want to go ahead and call him someone who has sexually assaulted women as a result. Dirty jokes, rude comments, and cat calls are not assault. They are a form of harassment that again, is horrible for women, but not assault.

Compliments are now a nono for me. No way!

He's no more a "bitch" than a female who complains about a man grabbing her ass. It's either "sexual assault" and the worst thing on Earth or it's not. What's good for the gander is good for the goose as well.

I think the point is that times are changing. The list of offenders in the Senate is long, I've known victims from a real who's who list of players in the 90's. It is a bipartisan problem, keeping score is pointless. It is a cultural problem that has changed some and is in need of dire improvement.

I agree. I've also seen people conflating adultery with these different offenses, completely different.

You left out Jimmy Page of Led Zepplin fame. Free pass for having sex with a 14 year old, when he should have been arrested as a Pedo.

NBA hall of famer Karl Malone was 20 when he had a child with a girl who was 13 at the time. :mad:

Identity politics is the left's calling card, where everyone, except straight white christian men are victims. They built their castle on a foundation of sand. Watching crash it in on their empty heads is delicious irony.

Lets not forget that Don Henley of The Eagles was charged in 1980 after two naked teens, one 15 and one 16 were found at his house. Both claimed to have been drugged and sexxed up.

Our newest contestant is...Michigan Congressman John Conyers.

Please welcome him with a big round of applause.

There must be a lot of celebrity hand-wringing and light sleeping going on.

I'll bet everytime a celeb or politician get a call or text from their publicist their heart skips two beats wondering if "this is th bad news I have been afraid of"

...good times !!!

My geography almost mirrored your except I was not too rural but I disagree somewhat because dating older “men” was also considered cool. I put quotes on men because not all males are men. Some are & some are just assholes etc.

Most of the boys my age were too immature and silly for me so I dated older guys.

When I had just turned 17 I began dating a 28 year old guy. Our last date involved some serious smooching to the point I got to thinking “is he the one?” as in “is he the first person I’ll have sex with?”. And yeah my parents knew about his age because my dad had a rule that our dates had to park their cars, get out come to the door and meet them on a first date. Subsequent dates they still had to come to the front door. No beeping of horns & me running out & jumping in a car.

And always on the first meeting with a guy my dad would make sure he was cleaning one of his firearms. In this case it was almost hunting season and also a little excessive probably because of the age difference he had about 5 rifles a couple of shotguns and several pistols & a scruffy beard (he’s 6’4” a big guy and can be most unpleasant if called for and first time meetings with guys who wanted to date me called for his attitude to be very serious and kind of mean) They either stood politely answering his questions and calling him sir and my mother ma’am or I didn’t go on dates with them. And if that was the case my dad would make them be very clear about staying away from me or my sister. Though I was probably meaner than him it worked better with him. Five foot four and 100lbs translates as more cute than mean though a few found out my dad was the least of their worries.

Anyway back to the 28 year old. After that smooch fest we had (and yeah just some good kissing). I decided to not go out with him again because it was clear to me he was used to having sex. I wasn’t ready so I broke up with him.Although he was the perfect gentlemen with me. He made sure I was comfortable with us kissing and stopped when I told him to. Opened car doors. Escorted me to and from places like a restaurants or the movies with his hand either on my elbow or the small of my back. Followed the rules.

I introduced him to his future wife about 6 months later. She was 18. They were married right before she turned 20. Their kids call me aunt and so do their grandkids.

It was common for girls my age back then to date older guys. This will sound weird but things really WERE different then.

I suppose In today’s climate he would be considered a horrible person. I disagree.

I approached fatherhood a bit differently. A 28yo showing up to pick up my teenage daughter was not going to fly at my house. Not even close.
