This #metoo movement is an abomination to human intelligence and needs to stop. Immediately.

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.

If you're trying to make an argument it is stronger if you don't deliberately mislead those you're trying to convince. I actually agree with much of what you're saying. However, a simple google search will show you that Steve Wynn is a piece of shit who has no business being on the side of a building.
"According to the Journal’s report, in 2005, Wynn paid a $7.5 million settlement to a manicurist who worked at the Wynn-Las Vegas casino, who had told several people at the time that he forced her to have sex with him. She told a colleague immediately after the incident, and repeated to others later, that after she gave Wynn a manicure, he told her to strip naked and lie down on a massage table in his office suite. She said she didn’t want to have sex and was married, but he demanded she submit, which she eventually did. The Journal also reported that the woman filed a detailed report with the casino’s HR department. Dozens of other Wynn employees interviewed by the Journal said he had sexually harassed them over a period of 10 years, including pressuring one former massage therapist at the Wynn Las Vegas spa several years ago to massage his penis to climax. Wynn suffers from a degenerative eye disease and became legally blind in 2010."

This is not "asking a manicurist for sex". This is abusing your power to assault someone.

Fair enough. But look at the language here--"'he forced her to have sex with him" is basically an allegation of rape. But pressuring someone is distinctly different from rape. Husbands "pressure" wives for sex pretty routinely.

I'm actually a supporter of the #metoo movement to a large degree (let's be honest--places like Hollywood were, are, and will probably continue to be out of control), but I'm concerned that language is being used to conflate sexual assault with sexual harassment, which are night-and-day different from one another. Rapists deserve to be hanged or castrated; sexual harassers deserve a stern talking to. Some in the movement--the Ansari accuser, for example--are completely abusing the language surrounding assault and rape, conflating rape with regret, words with assault.

I'm not a huge fan of the #metoo movement either but holy shit this is a bad take.

There is much I agree with in this post, but I also have to say I've seen firsthand (via a relative) that it can take well into adulthood to come to terms with childhood sexual assault. The memory may essentially fragment as PTSD-related self-defense mechanism, leaving the victim with symptoms but limited recollection of what happened. Said individual might experience flashbacks and in time put everything together (especially if it is unpacked through counseling), at which point shit can really come to a head. This is a gross simplification; however, the point is that it's wrong to automatically discount someone coming forward after 15 or w/e years cause it really may have taken that long to figure everything out. Keep in mind that while saying all of this, I agree not all claims of sexual abuse are valid and indeed, many are being made for the wrong reasons. The problem is it can be really hard to separate the invalid claims, and the default reaction should not be to automatically dismiss all of them.

Yea society was different back then. Sexual assault was normalized to the older generations.

Anyone remember that cartoon Pepe Le Pew?

Check out the videos on YouTube. He was basically a rapist skunk.

My concern is that the prevalence of feminism has turned our society into a gender war between male and female ignoring how similar we both are and demonizing men in the process. If a women turns on the news and sees more celebrities accused of sexual assault will she think that all men are evil? It is akin to the anti-Muslim terrorist propaganda war.

My other concern is that we spend so much time ignoring men's feelings in the process. We need to talk way more about men's health in our society. I don't need to remind most that men commit suicide at a rate 3.6X higher than women with similarly higher rates of depression.

Women's rights absolutely should be expressed and celebrated, but more often it feels like it is expressed in the form of subjugating men.

Guys, I have a shocking announcement to make.

Earlier this morning, Friday, February 2, 2018. I was viciously and disgustingly sexually assaulted by MonacoMonkey

He threw MS at one of my posts, even after I made it clear that I didn't want him thinking about me. I feel violated and degraded. He thought that I did not have the power to speak out. Guess what MonacoMonkey? Your patriarchy is up. I will no longer suffer at the hands of the patriarchal Male-Gaze that determines which of my posts, as someone who identifies as an atom of Uranium, are worth of praise and worthy of Monkey Shit. Today! I stand! #MeToo

Look, it's clear women are fighting to be in control of their own sexual identities, which is fine. They're changing the way we look at gays, and hell, sex in general. It's cool, because they want to rebalance the sexual dynamic between men and women.

But it's going to be a cold day for women when they actually have to choose from a few options of men because all the guys are being more faithful than the women. Not saying that day would ever come, but wouldn't it be pretty funny to watch some certified hottie not be able to find a date or someone to buy her a drink. Fucking hilarious these chicks.

When I lived in a downtown mid-rise there was a chick who lived down the hall who came home one night absolutely trashed. She couldn't get in her apartment and I believe she said she left her purse somewhere.

It must have been past midnight and I let her in so she could sleep on the couch.

Never again will I show an act of compassion such as this for a female stranger. I am incredibly lucky she wasn't a psycho feminist who could have called the police and said I assaulted her.

If they want to be "independent" then let them be. That means if they are wasted and forgot their purse like an idiot, then they can sleep outside and take responsibility for themselves.

That's where this feminist #MeToo BS is headed.

DetRustCohle:

Did you not get the memo? Women would never ever lie about sexual assault. Especially against high powered men with lots of money that would have their lives and businesses fall apart if they were to be accused of such. Women are infallible human beings with no history of lying or extorting their successful male counterparts.

I don't feel like it's extortion. But when did saying "me too" not get out of hand and snowball crazy.

square40:

made the mistake of taking an environmental science class this quarter for a gen ed credit and its a bunch of dumbf**k feminist hipster girls that never stop complaining and blame all of their problems on men or republicans or society but wonder why their life sucks when all they do is smoke weed and complain. Anything that comes out regarding the metoo movement they eat up right away like its the last meal they are ever going to eat in their lifetime

Sounds like a pussy fest

My problem with #MeToo is primarily twofold:

  1. It oftentimes fails to distinguish between genuine rape/assault/blackmail from male behavior that is harmless and not driven by malice or a desire to harm the woman but could come across as awkward and uncomfortable for the woman. The Aziz Ansari incident is a classic example of this.

  2. MeToo and the feminist movement at large, argue that women are equal to men in every way and should be treated exactly the same as men. Yet, when it comes to sexual relations, they treat women as big babies unwilling to make decisions on their own and need to be sheltered from the realities of human biology.

exactly. I feel like you can't even give a women compliments now without it being "sexual harassment" ... it's getting out of hand.

I also don't like the fact that a lot of these women are politically motivated to come out with allegations of shit that happened decades ago in many cases... like sorry if Trump in office is what made you come out, I honestly DON'T GIVE a FLYING FUCK

I do think there are allegations that are valid, even if it comes out later, such as the Roy Moore allegations. In the case of Trump, I don't buy it because of the numerous contradictions in the women's stories, the fact that multiple people have disputed those charges, and the lack of consistency in the accusations. With actual sexual predators (i.e., Weinstein, Cosby), they follow a modus operandi of assault. All the women tell similar stories about what happened to them, stories that are extremely specific and detailed. With Trump, the women told vague bizarre stories (i.e., getting "groped" on a first class seat on a plane, Trump supposedly started kissing her while Melania was in the other room). These aren't credible enough for me to believe that Trump actually assaulted these women.

Finally, the infamous Access Hollywood tape. I saw that video a million times. Trump was clearly talking about how women LET (that is the key word here, since it implies consent) wealthy men get away with a lot more. Does anyone dispute this? At no point did Trump actually say that he committed assault. Billy Bush was interviewed about it last year, and he said that if he really thought Trump admitted to assault, he would have called the cops. It was just insecure Trump trash talking and boasting to a C-list celebrity.

just imagine if women seriously believed in absolute equality (rather than when it's convienent for their "cause").

*couple hears noises downstairs at 4am.
man - "honey I checked last time, it's only fair if you go."
woman -"of course, I believe in equally sharing the burden!"

of course, this will never happen in real life.
my point is, evolution created genders for a reason. don't try to tell evolution it's wrong
(because it never is).

not so sure about all this other stuff but is anyone buying $WYNN on this dip?

Serious question not trolling at all I wonder if this is a good dip for a long-term buy, but I also worry about the possibility of Macau not wanting to renew gaming licenses with a tarnished reputation?

Anyone know anything about this business or cover it?

People seem to overlook the fact that all of this BS ties back to cultural marxism. Media brainwashing, feminism, black lives matter, LGBT, #metoo, etc is all part of their agenda. There is a war on religion, a war on men, a war on heterosexuals, a war on freedom of speech, a war of the family unit, etc. It truly is a dangerous time to work for a corporation or be a man of means. You're one allegation, allegation away from legal drama, being fired, settlement costs to shut them up, etc.

update WSJ reporting that NYPD Victims Crime Unit (the one that deals with sexual assult/rapes) seeing 37% YOY increase in reported rapes. They actually cite the #metoo movement as part of the blame. Interesting.

The issue here is, when you dilute what constitutes "assault" and reports go through the roof, everyone (cops included) start taking things a little less seriously.
And when you cry wolf enough times, the farmer won't bother coming to your rescue.
Shame, especially for the girls who are actually real victims.

It's wise to be only cordial and professional with women you work with, maybe even women in general. Years ago when I was in the army I worked in a med hold unit. This is where people being out processed for injuries and other things waited while their paperwork was completed. Since back then being openly gay was not allowed gay men would occasionally pass through the unit also.
I remember some of the other guys talking with one gay soldier about why he would want to be Gay and how nasty sodomy was. I was taken aback by his quick retort that men like vagina even though it's nasty also. After giving it some thought he was spot on with his observation.
Objectively speaking the vagina or "front Hole" as it is commonly called here in California is almost always leaking, oozing or dripping something from it. Urine, blood, mucous, pus, yeast etc etc. In addition the diseases spread ranging from HIV,Pseudomonas, Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Herpes etc etc.. make dating women a very unattractive proposition. The problem is so pervasive a 42 billion a year global feminine hygiene industry has sprung up to help combat the recurring problem.
So guys next time she flashes you a cute smile up top know that there is something much more sinister going on down below and while she may be able to temporarily knock the stink off that thing the underlying funk is always present. This post is getting very long but in Part 2 I will illustrate why what I have just posted is very important to parents and especially mothers in general. Stay Tuned!!

One of my relatively close female friends back in college once told me about her crush, looked me dead in the eye, and said "if you tell anyone, I'll tell the school you raped me". She fully meant it. I have had second doubts towards all sexual accusations since then. Some girls just use it as their weapon now.

On that note, OP raises an interesting point - why are sexual crimes viewed with so much more social disapproval than theft or fraud or something?
