Let's be honest about Aziz Ansari (Opinion) - CNN

What's everyone's opinion on this article.

I tend to agree with the author. Consensual sex is not a reason to try to ruin someone's career, but real sex offenses probably are.

Thoughts?

If the woman admits it was consensual, how can it be a police matter?

i think (going by that article, i have not heard or read anything else about this situation) that the woman in this case is being ridiculous to even bring this out in the open potentially ruining things for aziz.

i think most women can state a time where they were involved with some sexual activity that they were not 100% comfortable with but consented to nonetheless sometime in their life. this is not sexual assault. if you are forced to do something, that is wrong. but to consent, go along with it but then regret it because you weren't completely comfortable with what you did? well, that's on you. she should have said no and meant it if she didn't want to do it. it doesn't sound like he made or forced her do anything.

Sad that she would try to ruin him. Glad that most people are sensible enough to see through her story.

It was a bad date. No, he didn't rape or assault her but he behaved somewhat crudely. And to a certain extent, so did she. I think both of them have lessons to be learned from this experience.


I can't say I would be thrilled if my daughter was dating Aziz.

I didn't read the article linked above but I did read the Babe article when it came out and my first reaction was, huh? What's the point? Why was this published? I am no fan of Anzari and know nothing about his personal life, but the author could have walked out at any time, and did not. Why? Because she was with a celebrity and she thought that was cool. I have had similar first-date experiences and simply left if things weren't going the way I wanted. This is not the date experience I would hope for myself or my daughter, but it was not a crime.

It was consensual, she got feelings of regret after, lol.

A date that has pressure to have sex? Wow, how unusual.

Agreed. This one was between the two of them and is none of the public's business.

It was a bad date, nothing more. She's a coward for hiding behind an anonymous name then damaging his reputation. Of course if she revealed herself other men would avoid her like the plague. I agree with Ashleigh Banfield HLN.
