Big deal?

So you would be OK if this had happened to your daughter? Or mother?

FOH


The women in my family know how to handle themselves. What they wouldn't do is bring it up a decade later in order to defame someone.


Can they handle themselves even while they're unconscious?
I don't even understand how you could try and defend this action when the chester Al Franken himself feels remorse.
Whats that say about you?

Cripes. We're talking about Franken here. It's already partisan crap. Let's not double down on it.



Oh, so I am just to let people spout how great the democrats are at actively dealing with abusers on their side?

I think not.


Well if you won't listen to my words listen to your own:

Funny from the person who keeps bringing up Moore instead of Franken.


You can stop bringing up Menendez now.


Thanks for the suggestion, but I will post what I like.

Sure. Just don't pigeonhole others while doing the same as them.

I know we've disagreed in the past (some recent lol), but judging by your avatar I think I have a fairly good feel for your comedy perspective. And that would imply that you understand the difference between a joke (even tasteless) and when it goes too far.

I appreciate you sticking to your guns on both counts. (I will admit the Menendez thing probably doesn't help since it seems most don't even know about it).

But keep on keeping on. Disagree or not, I salute you for keeping your opinions straight across the board.

...was he kidding when he forced his tongue in her throat? I know writers from Saturday Night Live aren't all that funny but come on now. You know more creepiness will be coming out.

He strikes as a pretty unpleasant person to meet.


Anyone who marks someone as guilty until proven innocent is is far worse than unpleasant.


He apologized for it, claiming he doesn't remember events the same. Why apologize then if not an admission of wrongdoing/guilt?

That I can tell the difference between a joke and sexual assault. What does the opposite say about you?

Perhaps you have me confused with sobberbachus.

That poster was the one bringing up Moore and Spacey and others while telling me to not bring up menedenez.

I was merely pointing out that it was funny asking me to focus on Franken when he wasn't.

Well thanks.

I have defended comedy, even grotesque examples of it all through ATS.

I defended Kathy Griffin, supposed jokes by liberal anchors about the truck attack, the killing of a Trump charcater in a play, etc.

I think comedy should be protected even when distasteful.

I do not think this picture of Franken is a big deal, it clearly seems like a joke, even if he touched her. Does that mean this woman doesnt have the right to be upset, of course not.

The tongue thing is far more serious to me.

Really doesnt matter if you think its a joke. What matters is how she felt about it. She may not find it funny like you.

It's not funny, the woman involved sure didn't think it was funny....and even if by some stretch of the imagination some believe this is some attempt at humor , what kind of "humor" ? Grabbing sleeping women's breasts is funny ? Worse yet he had someone film it, even more disturbing.....another scumbag....Here's a thought, if you're a sexual defiant....Go hide in your defiant world with others like yourself, but WE'RE DONE allowing the scum to rule the World !

Why not?


It's disrespectful; it's not funny; it's ill-mannered; it's uncouth; it's ungentlemanly.
