Lol at Bette. More than likely they all got high and had a 3some. That was common back in the 70's.

It's becoming a pile on as Woman are recalling things from decades ago. Memories are a funny thing. Innocuous interludes can be turned into groping and rape in a person's mind, especially so far down the line.

Bette Midler is well known for doing outrageous things to get attention and she has been out of the spotlight for quite awhile... so, the timing is questionable at the very least.

Yep, consent can get boring. To change it up they take an opportunity to do something more exciting like drug a woman and go for it. One can see how this can lead to some very ugly possibilities. How far will they go...

And then for these horny men, there is simply opportunity. Arnold Schwarzenegger got that nanny pregnant, and lets just say she isn't exactly model material. Hugh Grant was also not selective.

So, they can have access to the most beautiful women and still be open to having affairs, picking up common street hookers, assaulting, raping homely women just because they are there. It must be exciting for rich and famous men who can get attractive women and people around them to do their bidding, to act out like this.

Geraldo fondling Midler? Extreme desperation. When did this apparently happen? Why didn't Midler say anything about it until now?

According to an article I read this isn't recent news.... Geraldo admitted there was an incident in the book he wrote a long time ago.

I don't see where Bette Midler is even discussing it. It's an old story being brought up by publications such as People that are probably just digging for stuff to ride the wave and have something to write about. They're taking issue with the tweets he made about Lauer apparently.

Indeed, birds...

as the list grows, it points out how pervasive the sexual assaults, harassments are across the USA.





=sockruhtese;50263239]After Fox News personality Geraldo Rivera defended Matt Lauer after Lauer's firing for sexual assault, the internets gave new life to an interview Bette Midler gave where she says Geraldo and his producer drugged her and sexually assaulted her in the 70s (yes, groping is sexual assault).

Geraldo is a big supporter of Roger Ailes, Bill O'Reilly, and Donald Trump - all of whom have been accused of sexual assault themselves. Birds of a feather.

Inappropriate, off topic and just an ugly comment.

That's it fire all of the men. When it comes time to build a bridge there won't be anyone left to build it.

So it should be ok for men to harass and sexually assault women because men build bridges?
