The PoundMeToo movement takes down another American cultural icon...

At some point, adults need to step up and take responsibility for their own situation. This isn't the Cosby scenario in which Freeman drugged or raped anyone, it's an old man being a dirty old man, touchy grabby, "inappropriate" comments, etc. A swatting of the hand followed by a stern "Mr. Freeman! Keep it to yourself" or "Mr. Freeman, how dare you?" was all that was appropriate or needed here. Then, if adverse impacts to the females' employment status or treatment was observed, escalate things to the courts. This "years later I'm going to tell a reporter you wanted to PoundMeToo" nonsense is simply ridiculous. Make no mistake, if you're an attractive female, nice body, sweet personality, and wear revealing clothes or are a flirt, guess what? We males have sexual thoughts about you and some may even proposition you!!! It is called biology. Not a damn thing wrong with letting a woman know you're interested until it has been made clear the attraction isn't a two way street and the come ons are unwanted.

Is a run-of-the-mill sexual advance, and acceptable as a consequence of existence, you need to re-examine yourself.

This isn’t really a political story and I am not sure why some are treating as such. If he did it then he needs to be punished, but my issue is still that people are being prosecuted in the media with no evidence. This needs to stop.

Women dress attractively and then get mad when men admire them...

Maybe Islam had the right idea with burkas...

Second... seriously? This sounds like run-of-the-mill unwanted sexual advances. That's life and not a opportunity for a lawsuit or victimhood.


While I doubt there will ever be an end to people making sexual comments towards one another; if you think

In one incident, she said, Freeman "kept trying to lift up my skirt and asking if I was wearing underwear." He never successfully lifted her skirt, she said -- he would touch it and try to lift it, she would move away, and then he'd try again.

Is a run-of-the-mill sexual advance, and acceptable as a consequence of existence, you need to re-examine yourself.


Have you ever read what the current president has been accused of? Clinton? JFK?

Now if there is some proof sure...it's a bit overboard. Though he never did succeed.

In what #ing way is following a woman around and repeatedly attempting to lift her skirt and asking if she’s wearing underwear a run-of-the-mill sexual advance?
What Neanderthal taught you how to interact with women?

That was super offensive to Neanderthals. We are generally quite caring and respectful of women. You homo (sapiens) are the aggressors, as evidenced by your near extinction of us...

I wonder if this is another... "he wanted sex, and I didn't so I just gave him a blowjob, but it made me cry, and then he did the same thing again the next 10 times we dated" thing?

Since I’m not looking for him to be crucified, literally only pointed out that a grown man literally trying to lift a woman’s skirt is not really a normal sexual advance, I’m not sure what the relevance of:
1) the severity of other womanizers transgressions are
2) his success is.

Normalizing behavior that clearly crosses a line is the problem, all the hyperbole about feminazis aside - this is the toxic sexual atmosphere that’s a problem. That anyone thinks this might be acceptable, or that not saying something I’d the same as consenting to it, and therefore not sexual harassment.

Wait a minute are you taking the biology, evolutionary hormone excuse? Women should be able to wear no underwear and short skirts without being noticed....only the guys they want to have look at them are appropriate.

Personally I wear clothes where my unit is perfectly outlined and then file lawsuits whenevery the wrong person looks at me.

Sure only I didn't see any proof that happened or in what context. Was everyone coked up and playing around? Now her career sucks?

I have no information and the msm sucks. If he is guilty then sure he is a stage 2 perv.

this is the toxic sexual atmosphere that’s a problem


the only toxic atmosphere is the one being created by fake outrage over an event that is teenage like and has no place in the normal day to day

some actor once apon a time lifted a skirt and suddenly we live in a toxic atmosphere

You cited the dictionary definition of libido in defense of what freeman allegedly did (the specific instance I quoted); treating is “run of the mill” because what, a man has a libido? If you’ve got a point to make you’re as clear as mud, and now you’re twisting what I said to paint yourself a victim.
