phling, yeh, social media leans towards being a blunge of self-importance and yadyada, what else is new? It doesn't negate the fact that most women in your life have probably had legitimate experiences of sexual assault or serious fear stricken to them sexually. It leaves a scar on people, and if they want to open up about that then good. Yes there are some who will try to blur the line and say that some guy who glanced at them for 2 seconds on the subway made them feel sexually threatened, but there will always be people who are oversensitive and self-aggrandizing in that manner, who will jump on a movement to feel included. Most people aren't that. And even those who are like that are not hopeless, they're probably just in an immature phase of their life.

 

If you want advice, which you probably don't, it's go out to a cafe or something and talk with some random people in your community more. You sound like you don't get much varied social stimulation. It would do you good to go out and actually try to empathize with who you deem as the writhing masses and see that there actually is a fair bit of intelligence, wisdom, and humanity in even those you think of as flies around shit.

lol

He's a perv straight up. It's only cause he's rich and funny he can get away with this. Any women on this forum to balance the male bias? No.

Actually there's a couple but I don't blame them for not wanting to touch this thread with a 10 foot pole, what with the aforementioned gamergate vibes.

seems like the opposite is true. he's clearly not getting away with it and suffering losses because of something that wouldn't even materialize into a lawsuit irl outside of showbiz scene. only because he's famous it's causing a lot of noise and therefore damage to him.

U reckon everyday sexual harassment shit goes unchecked? I heard some gross stuff going on in management where I work. Careers for favours. Guess it depends on what u mean by getting away with it. Less millions or prison.

Oh no doubt Louie screwed the pooch. Casually whacking it in front of acquaintances turns out to be a high stakes gamble. But these transgressions have been re-contextualized in the wake of Roy Moore, Spacey, Weinstein, etc. If this kind of behavior goes unchecked, it can escalate to Weinstein levels, sure. Maybe there are worse incidents we don't know about yet. It's just too consensual and mild at this point for me to say I'm horrified and disgusted. That Louie circa 2002 clout only gets you so far with habits like that.

This happened pretty frequently at my previous job. A manager/supervisor can't harass anyone and get away with it, but they can take someone under their wing. Certain employees becoming the "favorite student" and really, eh, rising to the occasion is something people are less likely to talk about in a way that brings consequences. It's crass and sexist to accuse a coworker of climbing the ladder that way even though everyone knows that in this case, it was true. So it continues unchecked.

For the record, I wasn't defending him. I was just saying let the art be art and let the person be a human being doing fucked up shit without feeling a need to censor said persons art. Kthanksbye

The disappointing thing to me is how polarizing this is proving. He was being gross, he fucked up. He admitted it, and good on him for that. And sure, it pales in comparison to Weinstein, but nobody in Hollywood wants to be associated with that shit, especially at the moment. And I think that's just fine. It hardly even bears discussion beyond, hey, don't be a gross pig and jack off in front of people who don't wanna see it.

 

Also even he himself acknowledged that the consent aspect of it is problematic because of his status.

I'm sure he can find other avenues for his art. There are plenty of talented unknowns out there struggling to squeak by who don't have patterns of weirding people out with sexual misconduct.

i should drunk post more often.

 

what's your new years resolution?

You're not from Missouri are you? Because I had a buddy in college who did the same thing with his balls at parties. He had the biggest fuckin scrote I'd ever seen. All of my male friends agreed and if you multiply that across all the locker rooms and pornography we had watched as an aggregate, it was really saying something. It looked like a wrinkled apple bulging out of his zipper. Anyway, I think we've tapped into a universal lad behavior that cuts across time and space. I do miss those days.

 

 

 

they weren't my balls.. was a friend of a friend.. florida. university of florida in the early 90s.  

 

i also miss being 22 years old.
