I find it rather amusing that most people actually believe allegations from years (some DECADES) prior.
Try reporting a crime that occured 15 years ago to the police today. Whether it's extortion, theft, or if your significant other hit you on the head with a jar of Nutella (battery/assault), it doesn't matter. You'll be laughed out of the room in no time. So why is it different for sexual assault?
It shouldn't be. But here's why it is - because the media and feminist overrun society of 2018 treat these alleged "monsters" as guilty before proven innocent. I cannot think of another instance where, for some unknown reason, it's ok for the general public to arbitrarily act as the default jury in a nonexistent trial.
This is absoultely unacceptable.
Look at what happened to Steve Wynn today, his alma mater (Wharton) revoked ALL his honorary degrees, as well as his name from one of their buildings. How does the fact that a man "asked a woman [a manicurist] for sex in his office" make him suddently not worthy of the degrees he earned / nullify his monetary donations? Oh and, this all happened before the iPhone was invented.
Reiterating above, why the aversion of people who are accused of sexual misconduct? It's as if people, schools, companies want nothing to do with these men. You cannot deny that these allegations (EVEN IF TRUE) does not interfere with effective management skills, stock picking ability, etc etc.
There are plenty of fat and/or unattractive women who (secretly) WISH a billionaire would ask them for sex. Wouldn't be surprised if these sleazy accusers actually feel loved/wanted on the inside, but are too afraid to admit it. Or, as in some (probably most) cases, act complicit to "use" the men in advancing their own careers, only to betray them in front of the country decades later.
Again, it's alarming to me how many of us believe these allegations. Hopefully the belief isn't genuine, or else Western society as a whole will face some harsh repercussions in the coming decades/centur(y)(ies). Because whenver we deviate too far from the long-term mean (politically, economically, socially, etc etc), the inverse can come back with great vengeance.
