    I would be surprised if he DIDN'T act that way.

    Looks like Jerry Richardson, owner of the NFL Carolina Panthers, is basically going to sell his team due to sex harassment claims. Extremely mild stuff from what I've read. Kinda just creepy old man stuff. That's pretty amazing though. This stuff is a wildfire.

    That's why on the first date, I skip everything and go straight to anal. No unwanted babies there.

    Admitting quickly is a form of Stockholm syndrome. There is also a certain virtue currency in admitting. These people have for decades been traveling in circles with a mindset and certain leanings that to do anything but concede is worse "always believe". Entertainment , politics, you're dead if you don't follow the narrative.

    Also classic cases of do as I say not as I do with a big ol heaping of projection onto others while they were doing it.

    only the private version is illegal. If the paternity is in question, a test has to be ordered by a court, which will always be the case if child support is demanded by a mother and the possible father denies his paternity

    Total bullshit. Simmons has no license to molest. And if he can’t control himself around women’s choice of dress, it’s his problem, no one else’s.

    Supposed to be an exciting day! I've read reports that the MOAB is going to be dropped on Congress and lots of scumbags are going down. Hope it's true. I hate every last one of them. My hatred reaches across the aisle.

    Not as in tune with your leadership. But up here, I too like to spread my disdain across the parties.

    All this leaves me wondering when the accused are going to start punching back. "Fuk you lady. Prove it. I'm guilty just because you said I was"

    And therein lies the problem for most of these men. They have the means to fight back. But they don't want to go through a court process where their past behaviour will be under a microscope. Bets their lawyers are all advising to 'sit tight and hope it goes away'.

    Most likely. However, selling your business isn't really 'sitting tight.'

    Not really comparable IMHO.

    Life was short, marrying cousins was fairly common and back then, you were either a child or an adult.

    The blood-suckers in corporate advertising hadn’t invented the “teen-ager” yet.

    I saw that. I suspect he wants to try to save his name, as the guy that brought the NFL to Charlotte. However, if he ever wants to sell the team, now is the time. They only have one year left with their current stadium. So, a new owner can extort the hell out of the city of Charlotte and her taxpayers or move the team. The team should fetch about $2.3B which, I would imagine represents a pretty good return on his money.

    I think that the only way to do that, right now, is to immediately file a huge suit against the accuser. These guys being accused have the money to pay a big-time lawyer. If the accusations are false they should constitute liable and/or slander and can materially affect the accused ability to make a living and his finances.

    I can't recall a single guy who's been accused challenging the accusations. Not one. And like you say most of them have the resources to fight this shit off. So, either they're guilty OR the Feminazi horde has dug into the male brain like a fukin' tick and convinced us all we're guilty for having so much as looked at a woman.

    Not the court process, it's the presumed guilty mania right now.

    As I was tapping out that post, I was thinking the same thing. I am guessing that most of the guys accused are guilty of something, but that isn't how the system is supposed to work. Like I said earlier, being rude, inconsiderate or even inappropriate is not a crime, in most cases. Some of this cases occurred in the workplace that can make those things crimes. However, I haven't seen too many criminal cases being filed. Nearly 100 guys are out of work and very few, if any are actually being prosecuted for a crime.

    I am sure that most of these guys are elitist sh*theels, but if we don't protect their rights, who will protect ours?

    I think some of them are aware that if they stay quiet the outrage will soon be directed at someone else. That has nothing to do with actual guilt. I agree that most are probably guilty of at least part of it. Were their actions criminal? I doubt it, but it doesn't have to be criminal to be inappropriate.
