It’s you who is the fool if that’s what you think.

So if a potential employer in a hotel bar interviewing you for a job prospect suggested that you both go up to his room because "there was too much noise, people might be listening, his shoes were too tight, he had a headache and needed to take a couple of Aleves" or some other shit you'd go to his room fully expecting him to behave himself... right?

Trump has his own claim to infamy but obviously since he's not in jail or never was hauled up for grabbing all that pussy then those who were subjected to that apparently did nothing thus enabling him to go on grabbing

Weinstein's spokeswoman Sallie Hofmeister has said the producer "obviously can't speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual.
"Mr Weinstein has begun counselling, has listened to the community and is pursuing a better path."
'I've got to get help'
Speaking on Wednesday, the movie mogul said: "We all make mistakes - second chance I hope."
He told TMZ: "Guys I'm not doing OK but I'm trying; I've got to get help. I'm hanging in - I'm trying my best."

Yes. Absolutely I do. And if he can't "behave" himself then there's something wrong with him, not me.

How many women have you raped or sexually assaulted in your lifetime?

You're one sad puppy. Really, I suggest you go away and do some research on the trauma that sexual assault victims often suffer post the event.

He has admitted to needing help. 2 bricks and a rusty knife would help.

Oh I see where you are coming from now. Apart from the women asking for it...it’s totally their fault for allowing themselves to be abused by a serial sexual abuser.

Men are always the victim in all this.

It's also well documented that remarks like those being made in this thread, by koop, are very damaging to victims and survivors of rape and sexual assault. Statistics tell us that it is highly likely that there are victims reading what he says and being traumatized by everything he's saying. But hey-ho, as long as he's having fun. I just wonder who he'll go after next? Holocaust survivors? It was their fault for flaunting their Jewishness in front of the Nazis? It's a race to the bottom with this clown.

Quite obvious he frequently used an excuse to get women to his room... parties, auditions etc. Don't forget these aren't Motel 6 rooms with only a bed and bathroom.

Well it is. They shouldn't allow themselves to be abused. They should take measures to put a stop to it. Aren't they fully emancipated and to a very great degree empowered and continuing to be more and more so?

Christ if it wasn't for the likes of Emily Pankhurst and others who were fighters then women would have had to wait another 3 decades to win the right to vote. In a way you're not doing women a favour by suggesting that the image of helpless traumatized victims is the only image that is acceptable. If it weren't for the one or two who did finally take action against Weistein then it would still be going on

It will hit rock bottom if you keep on posting your fantasy filled garbage about me being some kind of widely read messenger for the "rights" of serial abusers and then suggesting that I'm some kind of apologist for Nazi atrocities.

You overestimate the importance of what is written on the forum and that of yourself included
