If we ever round up enough enthusiasm to build a bridge, I suspect we could find the people to do it.

I'll chalk this one up to something I absolutely do not believe.

For the clueless among us, Bette Midler didn't just recall this.

This interview was 16 years ago.

And this, friends, is one of the many reasons why women do not report or wait years before doing so.

Patrick Stewart would break you apart for even suggesting he's in the same category as Geraldo Rivera.

Geraldo wasn't attractive in the 70s and he's not attractive now, but I guess that's subjective. And none of that would matter - he drugged and groped her. While Bette Midler may play it off, why should it be a surprise? People didn't take this seriously then, and many still don't seem to take it seriously now.

Well damn...

Can't throw a dead cat in a news network congress Senate without it hitting a sexual abuser.

What to do?

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.

Here it goes again: back in the olden days someone stole my horse, but I was afraid to say anything!!! I am so tired of who did what to who back 20,25 or 30 years ago. The exception would be real pictures or based on claims that could be proven and based on acts that really did hurt someone. How did they drug her and did she take any action? Sounds like another, "I'll get you" story. How do we know if the incident was consentual? I am just a bit tired of all this. I guess the subject of the day is: who slept with who in 1975 or who touched who's butt when they walked by?

and though I do not like him, I give him credit for that, but to claim someone drugged you and sexually assulted you is a pretty strong accusation.

Any woman who regularly rides a subway in a major city will tell you, "get use to it."

OMG, all the men of the world will be taken down.

I can think of at least 2 men in my long life who made advances and one was married and if his wife ONLY knew...he's gone now but she is still alive, but why. She knew he was a womanizer.

I'm not condoning all that has gone on for sure, but destroying a person's life. And all over the media. My own dad I'm sure did some womanizing in my parents 63 yrs of marriage.
