Will I have to start hating Sting?


Not if you don't want to.

Kevin Spacey was one of my favorite actors, but I certainly view him in a new light.

People being held accountable isn't a bad thing.

Maybe to GOP will come around one day.

Agreed. I was just hoping out loud that he's not a < male genitalia >.

I’m thanking myself again for not using FB or social media, nothing there to cause me harm even if it was innocent.

I find not offending women is pretty easy and I don't really think twice about it. I smile at everyone.

I watch the nightly news too. And every time I see this crap (it's been on TV every day for a while now), the movie The Proposal, starring Sandra Bullock, comes to mind.

I think about the novel Disclosure by Michael Crichton, and wonder how the tenor of the discussion will change when it's Carly Fiorina* or another powerful woman who is the target of accusations. That drop of a high-heeled shoe will be remarkable. The change that it'll be Hillary is just too ironical.

"Motley Crue is next in line? Will they get shouted down at their performances?" --- Won't happen. They are disbanded now. Most have kids, have done rehab, etc. They'll blame the drugs.

Matt Lauer is a good one, huh?

On Halloween a few weeks ago, I was standing in line to get into a club and I felt a hand slide along my side from my < hindquarters > up to my armpit. I turned around to see who had grabbed me and a skinny, short, gay dude was standing there smiling at me. Somehow he was there at the end of the night too, followed me out of the club at 1:30 when we were leaving.

So I've been assaulted by a guy as well, hahahaha.

And yeah I wanna see a man bring up some accusations against a woman. That'll be good.
Only chicky dudes send PMs and then delete them before they're read, in the middle of the night.

I thought it took guts for Terry Crews to talk about his assault too.

Be strong.
