Sex, Power, and Consent: How to Interpret the Media Frenzy Around Sexual Assault
By Joe Jarvis - November 17, 2017

The same media that covered for the rich and powerful is now delighting in throwing them one by one under the sexual assault bus.

I can’t deny that it is a joy to watch liberal elites like Al Franken and Harvey Weinstein fall from grace.

But a chill goes down my spine when I think, but why now? Why has the media suddenly done a complete 180?

Don’t get me wrong, it is great to hold sexual predators accountable. But the first thing that doesn’t feel right is “convicting” people in the court of public opinion based only on an accusation.

Okay, so for people like Weinstein and Spacey, there are enough people coming forward with enough verifiable evidence that they are beyond a reasonable doubt sexual predators. Al Franken posed in a photo that confirms his harassment.

But could this be the media’s angle? The first step is to accuse all the easy targets. Get the public whipped into a frenzy. Once everyone has the torches and pitchforks, all that will be required is an accusation, and the mob will burn the witches. And at that point, no one will wait to see if the evidence pans out. A simple accusation, true or false will condemn a man and destroy his career.

Unfortunately, these conditions will make liars and exploiters come out of the woodwork. It’s now trendy to accuse someone, and a consensual one night stand might turn into borderline rape in decades-old retrospect. You will have some people who want attention and money. You will also have some people who simply want to ruin a famous person.

And you will have elites picking targets in their games of power. Just consider how Julian Assange and Dominique Strauss-Kahn were accused of rape at opportune times to ruin them. Both charges were later dropped. Perhaps today in the witch-hunt mindset, the charges would have been further pursued.

Is the Media Offering a Solution?

It is great that men and women who have been victims of sexual assault and sexual harassment can now come forward and expect mainstream support. It is a serious problem. And just because some will abuse the witch-hunt for their own ends does not mean it is fair to the real victims to ignore or marginalize anyone who comes forward.

In this sense, it seems like the reporting from the media is beneficial. Most of the cases focus on a disparity of power. It is rich and famous people taking advantage of young fans, their students, aspiring actors, interns, or employees.

Maybe people with power will think twice. They may think of their careers, their marriages, their future, and decide it’s not worth it to be a creep.

But doesn’t it also divide society further? It creates suspicion and tension between multiple groups. Men versus women. Rich versus poor. Celebrity versus normie. Politician versus citizen.

And it is worth noting that many accused have been politicians. Unfortunately, the underlying fabric of a society is woven by politicians. They have the power to pass laws and regulations which drastically alter behavior. People even take cues from their government. Debt-laden governments produce debt-laden citizens.

Doesn’t that say something about what kind of society these sexual predators have created? It certainly won’t be one based on consent.

The Solution is Consent.

Sounds obvious, right? Sex requires consent at every level.

But on other subjects besides sex, consent is not held in such high esteem. Consent in general, in every aspect of our lives, should be held as the golden standard. Under these conditions, we will see consent respected in all aspects of life, including sex.

This is not a new concept. You’ll know the tree by the fruit it bears. In a society based on consent, fewer people will be taken advantage of sexually.

The root of the issue is a coercive society. It starts with people wanting their kids to be obedient to authority or elders, without ever explaining why. But obedience is not a virtue. As annoying as it can be for kids to constantly ask why, or assert their own attitudes and desires, this is a good thing. It doesn’t mean giving in to every demand of a child. It means recognizing their autonomy and largely allowing them to make their own decisions.

I have discussed how a coercive society breeds psychological distress on those forced to act a certain way. But missing was an assessment of the psychological conditions of those who exert the coercion. The actual coercive agents of the state go equally crazy. But they go crazy with power instead of crazy with desperation to be an individual.

And the rich, powerful, and famous have access to the power of the government. They have access to the same coercion they use against their victims.

The way the government treats the citizens is the exact same way sexual predators treat their victims.

There are different levels of manipulation. Some victims are groomed with gifts and kindness. Sometimes the abuser uses intimidation and threats. Sometimes victims are enticed by the promise of being elevated to the position of the abuser, with all the power that comes with it. Sometimes the abuser downright rapes the victims who won’t comply.

And our political structure is not based on consent. Democracy is not consent, it is mob rule. It is the will of the majority dominating the will of the minority. Nor does living in a society mean you consent to be governed. It should not be up to victims to flee in the face of a threat. Saying everything the government does is fine because you continue to live in a country is like saying if a victim of sexual assault didn’t want it, they wouldn’t put themselves in that situation.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can have an organized society based on consent. After all, if the government services are truly desired by the people, why do they have to be forced on them? Why do we have to be forced to pay taxes, instead of enticed with a good offer?

I am not saying ending the abusive relationship between government and citizen will eliminate sexual violence. I am simply saying it will set a consistent precedent for behavior. By acknowledging that all interactions must be consensual, there would be no double standard. These abusers would not get used to operating without the consent of others.

Yes, what I am suggesting means a vast restructuring of society. It certainly wouldn’t happen overnight. But as victims begin to stand up to their abusers, it is time all non-consensual relationships are called out for what they are.

If we really want to get to the root of this issue, we will examine the fundamental nature of the relationship between governments and citizens.

    Excellent point, Joe. Excellent. And terribly true. Too bad we can’t stop guvmint with one swift, well-aimed kick from a high-heeled pointed-toe shoe….

    • But we can exterminate them with extreme prejudice from the barrels of 100mil. guns.

  • Don Duncan

    This worldwide social savagery comes down to one question: Do you vote?

    The forfeit of sovereignty (voting) concentrates political power. Furthermore, it claims to authorize that power to be used against all, even those who did not vote, did not want any rulers (did not forfeit their sovereignty). No argument justifies this political paradigm. After arguments have failed, the use of force remains, against all reason, decency, and common sense. Those who see this and still support the initiation of violence, threat thereof and fraud (govt.) are being willfully blind to the consequences of their actions. Blaming the power structure they create and support is hypocrisy. Refusing to acknowledge the continued corruption that occurs with all coercive systems is possible only by self-delusion and results in self-enslavement.

    All that is necessary to stop the madness is to self-govern and respect rights. That will create a voluntary system of social interaction.

    • Number 6

      I see voting in much the same way I see gambling, in order to be in the game you have to consent to play in the first place and if you don’t win you therefore consent to loosing whatever stake you have in that game, and of course the house always wins because they own all the horses. Now if you don’t vote your not consenting to play the game therefore your not consenting to loose anything and any attempt to take it from you by force is laid bare for what it is ie Theft.

      The question is Where exactly does “THE LAW” stand on those not registered to vote, does the state still have the right to take your money by force ? why else have the facade of voting if they can just take it by force anyway ?

      • Don Duncan

        The “law” and the vote are facades. Their purpose is to support the illusion that choice governs the political paradigm. The reality is the majority have “chosen” not to have a choice; they have chosen a ruling elite to make choices which bind them completely, even unto their arrest, torture, murder. See: the NDAA which put into law (openly admits) the Nixon confession, “When the president does it, it’s not illegal.” The executive, under Obama, drafted a bill that gives the president life & death powers over all. It passed. Of course, it’s not Constitutional but will be declared such by the SCOTUS. The govt. “limits” itself, which is to say whatever power (authority) it wants, it gives to itself. It defines this as freedom, which it is for govt., the people, not so much.

    • Some good points. Problem is that most people are not capable of what you claim ? They are far too dishonest and weak minded.

      • Don Duncan

        True. But those same “dishonest and weak” will not be a problem. They will follow the 10% that create value and keep the world going. They follow anyone who appears to be strong and knowledgeable.

    • Votes did not matter after 1865 and definitely not after 1913.

        Bush I got elected with his famous “Read my lips”. When his promise was broken it came back to haunt him at election time. No matter who gets elected, nothing changes, so his lie only hurt him. The Bush supporters felt “used” and they could not concieve of a better way to get even than vote against him. This is the little box that confines their political thought. They are trapped by cognitive inability or fears. They cannot/will not see that they are their own worst political enemy. So they surrender their power and blame the system they make possible for not doing what they want. Questioning the system and their support of it is rarely done, and then not in a fundamental way. They vote for third parties or “rebel” candidates. And still nothing changes. Do they learn for their mistakes? No. They can’t until they start asking fundamental questions like: What is the basis of govt.? What would happen if the basis was changed? Is there any political experiments with a different basis that worked? Is the political paradigm I keep voting for flawed? Is it rational to keep supporting the same paradigm and expect a different result?

        • WAKE UP SHEEPLE !!!

    What on earth is the definition of a “sexual predator”?

    • One who eats sex for breakfast… 😉

      • JRX

        Jokes aside. It seems a very vague term and that makes the article very poor as well.

        • Weaponized words to persecute men. Vague is in the design.

    • A sexual predator is a person seen as obtaining or trying to obtain sexual contact with another person in a metaphorically “predatory” or abusive manner. Analogous to how a predator hunts down its prey, so the sexual predator is thought to “hunt” for his or her sex partners. People who commit sex crimes, such as rape or child sexual abuse, are commonly referred to as sexual predators, particularly in tabloid media or as a power phrase by politicians.[1]

      Definitions and distinctions

      Etymology and usage

      FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover is attributed with the first known use of the term in the 1920s.[2]…

      Continued at
      https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexual_predator

      • JRX

        Clearly a problematic defintion as “seen as obtaining or trying to obtain sexual contact with another person in a metaphorically “predatory” or abusive manner” could be anything.

        The kind of definition that can be used against almost anyone if needed. Like hate crime and other modern crap.

        • “Clearly a problematic defintion…”???

          Did you ask for a definition so that you could be enlightened and understand its usage and etymology–or so that you could defy and debate how it has been used since the 1920s?

          • JRX

            Oh, so a definition becomes good with time? Like a wine? Or that it became a good one because it’s put in one particular way on Wikipedia or any other authoritative venue.

            That was news to me, my bad. I was under the impression that a definition had to make sense. Afterall, there are basic rules for definitions and I’m sure you know that.

          • You asked for a definition. For 3 days, no one gave you one. Then I pulled a definition and etymology from wikipedia and instead of a thanks, I get attacked.

            Your methodology resembles that of a troll, looking for a senseless, meaningless fight.

          • JRX

            Sorry, was under the impression you posted the definition because you believed it ro be a good one.

            Defining a key word of the article cannot be meaningless.

          • After reading the wiki entry and the entire etymology, I DO think it is a good one. But I hardly think that is an excuse for your aggressive, troll-like behaviour. And based on something as whimsical as your “impression”?? Now THAT is senseless and meaningless.

            If you are here to pick a fight (that is MY impression), offer your OWN definition and see who disagrees, instead of pretending to ask for a definition and then attacking anyone who attempts to help.

          • JRX

            Have I been aggressive? I haven’t said anything about you at all, only about the definitions. Unless ‘aggressive’ has been redefined of course.

    Anyway, the ideal(istic) society TDB and other Libertarian types seem to propose is the equivalent of communism, which requires the requisite brainwashing to realize. Everyone happily doing whatever they want when they want and agreeing by consensus on everything, probably because they all want the same things, but not too much. It works for ants, but has never proven successful for humans, or even territorial animals.

    • lulu

      Not so sure of your analysis. Read this:
      http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2017/11/18/time-n18.html

      • robt

        Not sure how the article is relevant, but one take I get from the article itself is an inversion: If pretty well everything that McCarthy claimed ended up being true, and the article implies his claims were false then I suppose the rest of the article would be false, or illogical. It is at least incoherent.
        Thinking like these wsws people requires a special gift, the negation of truth and logic. Apparently, Stalin is still on the naughty list, but Lenin and Trotsky appear in their begging ad … commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Soviet Revolution.
        We are given a warning from wsws: “[the US is] “moving sharply to the right, toward support for censorship, political or moral witch-hunting and outright repression.”
        Those sound like the symptoms of a socialist paradise, and possibly the only coherent thought presented.

        • lulu

          It is relevant because in the broadest sense it says the same thing the Daily Bell does. The sexual intimidation perpetrator witch hunts have resulted in no one being charged yet the media promotes a presumption of guilt without fair scrutiny or a trial. The whole thing is serving another purpose.

          • robt

            Most of the perpetrators have confessed, either directly, vaguely, obliquely, or by rationalization.
            The wsws article, in the process of populating fields with straw men and Olympic pools with red herrings, says if it’s ok in the name of art in history then basically says it’s ok in the name of art today. Or, for greater clarity, dissociate the artist from the art. Whether they mean that the members of the public should do this by compartmentalization or whether news regarding certain artists’ antics should be suppressed is not clear.
            From the wsws article: “Hess, Dargis and the rest of the middle class moralizers never stop to consider whether there is an element in art that transcends the individual life and personal conduct.”
            And of course, class is to blame: “History teaches us that class society occasionally mutilates very gifted people beyond recognition, so that artistic genius and personal vileness coexist within a single human being.”
            And again: ” … criticism of the existing social order and what it does to people is beyond Hess and Dargis, a pair of extraordinarily self-satisfied petty bourgeois.”
            Clearly, none of this would happen in a certain type of society, with everyone happily and willingly cooperating because … why? Because in a true communist society which is to follow socialism there is no government and everyone does everything by consensus? Presumably, because of the etymology of the word everything requires or implies consent. Everybody just getting along. Or something like that. Add a healthy dose of human nature and see how long that lasts, unless of course, all humans could be made to think the same. There we go again …
            …………………………………..
            As far as another purpose, the only purpose of the media and ‘journalism’ has always been to get attention by publishing anything that incites Fear, Anger, Hate, Envy, Jealousy, and Revenge. You get all six it’s a Pultizer.

          • lulu

            And this purpose is a surface purpose to fulfill an underlying other purpose which is what both articles purport to illustrate.

  • Frank Rodgers

    To answer the why now question — There are more than 1,200 sealed federal indictments in the past two weeks. Most likely from Mueller. The theory is that he, Sessions, and Trump in conjunction with the Marine Corps are draining the swamp. They need to get this idea of corruption in the collective public mind because what is about to come out will be shocking and honestly will not be believed by many. The world is about to change for the better — get ready, it is going to be a painful and bumpy ride in the short term.

    • lulu

      What exactly are you saying?

      • Frank Rodgers

        I am saying that the corruption in our government is about to be exposed on a scale that will be unimaginable for most people. Trump is about to fulfill his campaign promise to drain the swamp. I would never have believed this was possible, but with the number of sealed indictments filed, I am excited and waiting to watch these criminals pay for their crimes. And if your question is related to the Vegas comment — I am saying the bad guys tried to assassinate Trump and MbS and failed and this BS story in the news is the sloppy cover-up for the failed attempt. Pretty sure they have the people involved locked up — which will be very bad for those who paid for it.

        • lulu

          Thanks for that specificity. It would be very special if all the Trumps were drained along with the rest.

          • Frank Rodgers

            I think the never Trumpers and Impeach45 crowd are going to have the hardest time with this. I was not a Trump fan, but am moving in that direction if these rumors are true. I have always felt the Clintons were criminals and had such control of the media and institutional structures that they would never pay for their crimes. But, justice may finally be coming. Apparently, this has all been planned since before he even announced his candidacy. The military, specifically the Marine Corps, are the only organization in our government that has not been deeply infiltrated by these bad people and they are running the play book on this. It spans both parties, the CIA, the FBI, the NSA and the Judicial System, There are white hats and black hats in all of these orgs. I think the white hats are about to win a big victory. But, there will be a price. Many people have been blinded to all this after decades of media propaganda and are going to be very upset to see their political heroes go to prison, or possibly be executed for treason. I imagine we will have a lot of civil unrest in the short term and many people may never accept what is about to happen.

            It is far easier to fool someone than it is to convince them they have been fooled.

          • lulu

            I sincerely hope you are correct. Is your source material the media in general and astute observation or do you have specific sites you draw from?

          • Frank Rodgers

            I have researched this extensively. I have personally verified the existence of these many sealed indictments. I also read news around the world including local news in foreign countries. Some of this comes from the dark web which is not easy for the average person to navigate. But, while it is fact that more than 1,000 people are about to be arrested or indicted, it is speculation on who and why.

            Facts to consider, Trump is surrounded by ex-Marine corp generals. Mueller, is himself a decorated ex-Marine and I can tell you that the Marines take the Death before Dishonor phrase seriously.

            This is a takedown of the corrupt people in our government by the military — specifically by the Marine Corp with assistance by the NSA.

            If you want to get into history — this very thing started in 1950 — Howard Hughes discovered how corrupt the government had become then and in conjunction with the military, drafted a plan to do exactly what is happening now. The problem is, the bad guys won and assassinated Kennedy in 1963, foiling the attempt to purge these bad people. It has taken until now to elect a President who is not beholden to this global criminal enterprise and while people may not like Trump’s style, there are a couple of things that are undeniable — he has a genius level IQ and big brass balls to take on these people. His life, and his children’s lives are at stake here.

            His total belief in Sun Tzu’s The Art of War is starting to show — he has completely duped the enemy by having them think he is stupid and no real threat.

            Look at the things he has done. He talked incessantly about what good friends he was with Putin during the election. Why? To force his enemies (Hillary) to come out and talk of how Russia was our enemy and his views were treasonous. He knew that there was nothing between himself and Russia and that if they forced this issue it would boomerang into Uranium One where the true Russia Collusion and treasonous acts would come out. And that is exactly how it is playing out. Bob Mueller went to the White House shortly after Comey was fired as a possible replacement to head the FBI. What most people do not know is that Mueller was not eligible for that position having served more that the term limits in the Bush and Obama administrations. So then, why was he there? It was to cement the final stages of the takedown.

            Everyone thinks Mueller is in bed with the Clinton Cartel and he has stocked his team with people who all have past loyalty to Hillary through campaign contributions, etc. To all outsiders it looks like the deck is stacked against Trump. SO why is he so confident and refused to even talk about firing Mueller or Sessions? Because they are all in on the biggest takedown in history and the other side has so underestimated Trump that they did not see it coming until it became known that the Podesta Group had employed Manafort in the Uranium One deal. Trump lifted the gag order on the FBI witness that will probably put everyone involved in Uranium One in prison when he testifies in Congress next week. He has pictures video and audio of Russians with briefcases full of cash talking about the pay for play.

            There are theories that both Podestas have already been arrested as well as Huma Abedin, John McCain, and Hillary. Theory is that both McCain and Clinton are wearing the orthopedic boots to hide house arrest anklets. I mean — do you really need a full lower leg boot for a broken toe?

            I could sit here and type up the remaining theories on what is coming, but I think it will be far more interesting to see it play out in the World News. There were a lot of very disturbing videos on Anthony Weiner’s laptop. So much so, that veteran NYC police were brought to tears and could not continue watching them. When the laptop was turned over to the FBI, some true patriot in the NYC PD made a copy and got it to WikiLeaks. This is why you keep hearing Julian Assange say that his next leak will ensure Hillary goes to jail. It is also why Sean Hannity keeps taunting Hillary and Obama with the “Tick Tock” message.

            I hope they have the good common sense not to post these videos. They are apparently very disturbing. In one, Hillary and Huma are forcing a young (minor) girl to do unspeakable things. This is why you are seeing all of the sexual predation and pedophilia news lately. They are getting the public prepared for this hideous info that is coming out.

            down, down, down to the Deep Web I will go. Have heard the navigation is difficult but will give it a try. I have been thinking, purely on the basis of logic, that Trump has a game plan that most are not seeing because of being blinded by the superficial annoyances he presents which are given ridiculous amounts of attention. It has always been apparent that the traditional power base running the past shows are not his allies.
            Thanks for explaining your rationale.

          • Frank Rodgers

            His craziness is deliberate. The genius in his plan will become obvious soon. Do not be surprised if you see Bill and Hillary (Clinton Foundation and Uranium One), Obama (Uranium One), George Bush (9-11), and George H W Bush (Kennedy Assassination and Mandalay Bay) all in jail before it is over.

          • Don Duncan

            How do you “wake up” a delusional populace? Not by holding back, no matter how “hideous”. The political zombies are deep, deep in denial. They need a blast of reality. Isn’t that “good common sense”? Isn’t the fate of the world more important than anything else? Isn’t truth, however painful, the answer?

          • Frank Rodgers

            Some of these are allegedly videos of human sacrifice. This would be too much for most people to see. Honestly, I don’t want to see it. It would be enough to force the perpetrators to admit what they have done in a video to be played for the American public. I do not think I could watch someone kill a child. Prison is too kind for people like that.

          • davidnrobyn

            Frank, I really, really hope you’re right. But deep down, I have to ask the question, Cui bono? Who benefits? In my skeptical heart, I can’t help but think that for something this colossal to happen, it’s got to be orchestrated with some far-reaching goal in mind, and that goal has to be power and aggrandizement, not to mention gobs of money. Plain old justice, righteousness, honor, and truth-telling don’t avail much in this sorry vale of tears. That’s the world we live in, and that’s man as he really is.

          • Again I hope you are correct, but not convinced at this point !

            Same here, you make a lot of sense

          • The CIA has assassinated dozens if not hundreds of people that came close to investigating or revealing the “Drugs for Guns for Kids Foundation” or the CPA/CPS. Irish Mafia is now the front for the Italian Mafia running things from the shadow.

          • Bullshit. Jar Head Secretary of Defense is pushing for WWIII with Russia, via anything possible Syria or North Korea, from the “Axis of Evil” cited some 23 years ago.

        • I certainly hope you are right, but I will believe it when I see it.

        • CNN & MSNBC have been exposed as fake news years ago, lost all credibility by now. So the Fake Narrative needs to be pushed through alternative media by pretty much all parties interested.

    • Frank Rodgers

      My messages are all being flagged as Spam. Not sure how this site handles that, but you probably won’t be able to see them soon, if you can even see them now.

      • Most flags come from readers, but all media will be under gov. control soon.

    • Again, good hopes, but don’t expect much from a Globalist like Trump either.

  • lulu

    Good points and a different perspective that at least looks beyond the surface hype.

      They are losing control of the narrative. I think you will see the biggest roundup of corruption, human trafficking, etc… the world has ever seen. Coming soon — get the popcorn. It is going to be epic and I cannot wait to sit back and watch this freak show unfold.

      • NonYo Business

        Hope you’re right, bet you’re wrong

      • Only a Violent Revolution will remove a Violent Tyranny such as USA has become.

  • The Solution is Consent ?

    Only problem is after the fact that consent is turned into rape or some other bad act if only by innuendo ? Who keeps any documentation of such things as sexual encounters ? Worse yet, how could that even be accomplished ?

    I agree some horrid social phenom is being created as a tool going forward and the double standards present are well past obvious. It is an epidemic.

    R. Moore has accusations and no real proof of any bad acts, maybe some bad judgement, at the same time we see A. Franken with photos of his egregious acts and many documented forms of his bad acts and comments and he is to be forgiven. And B. Clinton did far worse and was idolized for years ?

    Now we see Hillary who has committed many crimes as well as Comey and many others. Yet the democrats have been able to orchestrate long winded phony investigations against Trump and crew which has yielded no Russia anything. The real Russia conflict of interest is with the dems ! So the real story is all about the massive double standards and how the deep state apparatus is capable of manipulating the public rather easily !

    The real criminals walk freely !

    The Problem is not the lack of consent, its the abundance of “Manufactured Consent” or to give it its correct name FRAUD !

    Sex is such a sacred cow. G-d could have made human kind so much less stressful and simpler had He decided to create (or “evolve” for you “science” worshippers) human kind like the animal kingdom — no “consensual sex”. Simply heat cycles, breeding, and be done with it. Let the female take it from there.

      If only we were as dumb as they are then I guess. I prefer our evolution and way of doing things

    • Unfortunately, we evolved past the animal stage and to have a decent adult human, two parents are required even when not perfect.

    It took almost 1 month to the day for that phony Gloria Allred to produce a forged document and throw a mountain of doubt into the whole mess.

  • Coralyn Herenschrict

    Shocked to see The Daily Bell embracing leftist terminology and definitions of crime. Definitions that hinge upon the feelings of the accused, the feelings of the victim, and the feelings of the mob about fairness.

    it is great to hold sexual predators accountable….It is great that men and women who have been victims of sexual assault and sexual harassment can now come forward

    What’s a sexual predator. Someone voluntarily exchanging advantage he bears as of right for sex is now a “predator?”

    There is no sexual assault, there is only assault. Assault of the physical, violent kind. No physical assault, no crime.

    And the speaking of words, that others may feel “harassing,” sexual or otherwise, cannot be a crime under any circumstance.

    • Hear, Hear ! I think it’s time to dump the Daily Bell.

  • “…all interactions must be consensual…”

    That, of course, is a corollary of the Non Aggression Principle:
    No one has the right, under any circumstances, to initiate force against another human being, or to advocate or delegate its initiation.

    Because they are trying to muddy the water to protect their masters and themselves from discovery as pedophiles, rapist, sexual predators, and thirty shekel protitutes running interference for evil pedophiles.

    Overwhelm the public and they will grow disinterested. Once they lose interest, your criminals are free to continue. Notice how big Bill Clinton is remaining silent and the media is as well in regards to him. Untouchable. This will all be over soon and nobody will go to jail. Suckers

    • Only the poor people go to jail And sexual harassment has been used in political circles, military and corporations to eliminate those who don’t play ball, those who dissent or have a decent shred of morals to say NO to their superiors & could not be fired for no reason. This will not go away, because it is a useful tool to the evil in power.

  • Frank Energy

    The solution is to eliminate the PC bullshit and roll back so called radical feminism foisted on American men for decades.

    Much of the “sexual harassment” we hear about is simply “he hit on me”

    Fake media needs to be prosecuted.

    • As well as the accusing woman.

      • Frank Energy

        Many are making stuff up completely or at least “juicing it”. maybe they were scorned and this is payback.

        • Nalejbank

          Accusers should be forced to go to trial and if the accused is found innocent, made to pay both “sides” legal costs.
          Frivolous lawsuits are jamming up the courts because overall, “they pay”. It’s viewed by accuser and attorney alike that the risk is worth the reward and so far, that seems to be true.
          The accuser BETTER have the GOODS on the accused or not even file the paperwork so as to damage the reputation of the accused without so much as the presentation of their evidence.

  • There are no levels to consent, you are naked, you said yes in not so precise words, deal is done. You can’t wake up the next morning, hate the guy you slept with and put him in jail for rape or sexual assault. That is BS.

    • Coralyn Herenschrict

      Indeed. Body language, tonality, and behavior in context can constitute consent as plainly as explicit verbal or written consent. For example, see Betty’s sex with a stranger in a bar in Man Men Season 2, Episode 13, “Meditations in an Emergency.” Or see Dominique and Howard Roark’s “rape” sex in The Fountainhead. Or see the vast majority of real world sex, agreements to which are typically non-verbally made via complex behavioral signalling amidst complex emotional inter-currents.

      Though cultural progressives act as if otherwise, the historical convention for male expression of sexual interest is not through an explicit verbal statement. It is through sexualized behavior. The historical signalling convention for female disinterest in that overture is walking away and disengaging contact. Or if necessary to continue contact for other reasons, explicitly voicing her disinterest to qualify and clarify why she is remaining.

      Women throughout time have thus successfully responded to uninteresting sexual propositions without jumping to interpret the initial overture, no matter how immaturely, inappropriately, or hamfistedly conveyed, as anything other than an invitation declined.

        That’s the way it has been operating for centuries and it’s not likely to fundamentally change. But buyer(men) beware.
        “Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to appellation. ”

      Correct, the man cannot go back and say to his ex-wife , ” I realize now, 16 yrs later, I didn’t really want a child. I felt pressured, Give me back all my child support.”

  • Leapfrog
