BTW, what were you doing last year at this exact time and day?

Have you noticed that there are no sexual harassment, advances, groping, etc., accusations against any man who is not a public figure or wealthy?

Some women have found gold, and it's in the pockets of those they accuse.
Do you seriously think this?

The big one in politics right now is Roy Moore, who has not even denied the allegations.

Your example didn't have anything to do with what I said happened and I am not even sure I understand why the bolded part was included.

Bar fights are a regular occurrence in a college environment. Everybody has legal recourse if it goes too far. Most of these things don't. Pushing and shoving matches is what most were. No one likes real violence. It's worse now they are bringing guns to bars.

When I would go out, the only guys I ever saw tased and were so beligerant the bouncers had no choice to do it were the sexual harassers. The ones who would grab the waitresses' when their hands were full of drinks, etc. They just made everyone miserable. Although if they touched the wrong guy's girlfriend, it was ON.

The example I cited was where a guy was trying to rip a girl's shirt off and strangers stepped in. Didn't matter how she dressed. Some men respect women and will help a stranger even. Not just guys who fight - I saw many guys I know who are shy but will stand up for a stranger in cases like this and at least tell him off. They can see the woman is struggling. If the police were called the shirt ripper would have been charged with sexual assault. Some guys are willing to risk assault and battery witnessing someone else being attacked I guess. *shrug* From what I heard the whole bar was cheering when the bouncer hauled him out.

Telling this brings me to an interesting thought. In a bar environment a guy will say later (to excuse the behavior) "Well, I was drunk". In a bar so is EVERYONE else. Yet the other guys aren't doing it.

We are in a mass hysteria. What you are witnessing is the anti-sexual revolution.

What we are witnessing is the revolution of women who are tired of being treated like objects by men.

Don't a lot of women want to be treated like sex objects in the way they dress and act and how they front what they have?

"Lock her up," is chanted at rallies, though for what remains a muddle as she has never even been charged, let alone convicted of a crime. Uranium One conspiracy tale was bogus from the get go, has been widely debunked, and is still repeated like it was gospel.

After decades of dragging folks through the mud with false accusations and bogus conspiracy tales now suddenly there is this overwhelming concern that people be treated as innocent until proven guilty.

Please.

Spare me.
And the democrats don't do it?
Harry Reid used the protection of the Senate floor to absolutely lie about Romney's taxes.
The swift boaters were a private group of former swift boat sailors.
Did you forget Dan Rather lying about GWB's service record?
Both parties have doing this and for a very long time.
