This thread alone shows why so women say nothing and try to move on. It also shows why it's well past time to end this attitude in men that they can do whatever they like to whomever they like.

Every facet of media has had an uptick of sexual allegations brought against celebrities or other well known-names. I can't help but to think this isn't all just some coincidence, there's a reason behind all of these people getting outed. And almost every single one of them have had to admit that they are guilty. I'm not saying the President is behind all of this (I tend not to get too political), but somebody very powerful has knowledge and a foot in the door of all of these aspects of entertainment and news, and that person , one by one, is blowing the whistle on all of these people. Kind of like draining the swamp. People are getting exposed for lives they've had hidden for years, and now it's judgement day on these celebrities, athletes, and politicians.

I just have a hard time believing all of this is coincidence.
Consider first that these exposes all appeared almost overnight and out of nowhere for many in the public. Clearly all the "cleaning house" in the various entities is being orchestrated with something else in mind. With little to no time allowed in most cases to counter the allegations. Then it becomes a case of "are you questioning those women or do you not believe them?". Scary stuff most any time, though in this day and age it becomes quite alarming.

There appears to be an effort afoot to target some men for sexual misconduct. Then conveniently forgo any due process amid the loud shouting and clamors to resign.

I'm gonna say this and it's just thrown out there.

If you're a female and have an axe to grind or been under some male thumb and just pizzed off at males what a fine time to throw out some accusations. You can ruin someone's career/life with just innuendo and have your own personal vendetta fulfilled. This without any proof but just a charge. Seems almost un American to me.

Now surely some or most of these charges are undoubtedly legit . But if men are animals full of base desires and perversions which they unabashedly will act on without restraint then there are also women who are mean, deceitful, and also without morals.

The question the reasonable and thoughtful person should ask are who is the victim in these cases? How do you separate the goats from the sheep? And lastly, why is this a bandwagon issue (you know, like "bandwagon fans").

If the men are innocent they have the courts to prove this. When they sheepishly apologize and admit they did things that speaks volumes, especially when it's multiple women over years. Men have had the position of power over women for 3000 years and that in itself gives rise to certain attitudes and behaviors. Those days are numbered in an equality educated society, much to the chagrin of some folks.

Was is stupid? What you posted or the idea that women can sue for sexual harassment? If you were her boss and demanded that she have sex with you or you'd fire her, that's harassment. She could have reported you to your supervisor and gotten you fired. But since she married you, the chances to report you has long passed any sort of statue of limitations, I'm sure.

R U so naive as to believe that some man wrongfully charged pays no price? And we all know the courts always get it right.

It depends, and yes courts get things wrong but they do have a recourse to prove themselves as they should.

Problem, half of those people either are not denying it or have admitted to it.
