I'm sure that Jennifer Lawrence is somehow affected.

I will put good money that Nancy Pelosi will never get to say she's been a victim.

There is a rumor - only rumor probably being pushed by both the right and left extremist - that Donald Trump is hitting on her.

I have to say, I'm fairly disappointed in this crowd for making light of the situation(s). This type of response is exactly why so many women have just put up with this c**p in the workplace for so long. For every one of the celebs out there being accused, there are thousands more non-celebs that put this on their female co-workers on a regular basis. If the current coverage of the matter causes them to think twice about their behavior, I call that a step in the right direction. Although none of the recent high-profile accusations have been taken to trial, and there are 3 sides to every story (the victim, the antagonist and the truth), victim shaming in sexual assault / mis-conduct is NEVER ok. End of rant!

Good post. In addition, it is not limited to celebrities. Sexual misconduct occurs throughout society in every culture.

The humor was not intended to diminish the important steps to at least recognize the problem.

For the record, one of those likes is mine. I'm a grandson to two wonderful Grannies, a son to a great Mother, a brother to a pair of bad azz Sisters, a husband to the best Wife in history, and a daddy to the best little girl in the world. I'm sure that there is some nonsense associated with all of these claims, but I'd bet there is more fact than fiction. Too bad we don't know anyone that like to put one behind the ear. :wave:

Think of it however you want, I put most of the blame on the woman. Each and everyone of the women could of spoke out or slapped the crap out of the accused abuser. They didn't because it wasn't that big of a deal, or they wanted the money. A lot of women will use evey tool in the box to get a promotion, power or a sugar daddy. There's a heck of a lot more female gold diggers than male gold diggers in this country. I agree 100% there's no place for this kind of stuff but it'll only stop if the women do their part.

Impossible. Phyllis spent seven hours in a beauty shop once...and that was for the estimate.

That's a little more than fighting back, and she robbed him after she killed him. But that's what your supposed to do if someone rapes you minus the stealing part. This is no way connected to sexual harassment in the work place. IMO
But I guess pulling a trick could be considered work.
