You can lead a horse to water...

eventually, the Defenders will have some doubts. But then again, if Moore is still around, and Trump is still around, and anyone who just denies this stuff is okay to be in the senate and the white house, well I'm going to tell my kids to start jackin' up banks and never, ever, say anything but a flat out denial.

Garrison Keillor: 'I put my hand on a woman's bare back'

US author and radio host Garrison Keillor has been fired from his radio station amid a claim of misconduct.

Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) said a colleague on Keillor's former show, A Prairie Home Companion, had accused him of inappropriate behaviour.

Mr Keillor told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that the claim stems from an occasion when he put his hand on a woman's bare back to console her.

The station said it did not know of any allegations involving any other staff.

"I meant to pat her back after she told me about her unhappiness, and her shirt was open and my hand went up it about six inches <15 cm>", he told the newspaper in an email.

"She recoiled. I apologised. I sent her an email of apology later and she replied that she had forgiven me and not to think about it," he added.

"We were friends. We continued to be friendly right up until her lawyer called."

The floodgates that have been released since the Weinstein revelation is quite satisfying on many levels; the most important is that hopefully with all of this public shaming and light being shown on this creepy behavior this will hopefully dissuade this type of behavior and they will start to keep their hands and their penises to themselves. The second less important but nevertheless satisfying side effect of these revelations is that they will no doubt have more effect and publicity when the alleged perpetrator is wealthy, powerful and/or famous and I admittedly take joy in watching the powerful and celebrity class struggle. Bring em all down I say, let others worry about what team they are on and bullsh*&t like that. Those looking for a partisan angle to further their political agenda will be playing Twister cause political persuasion and being a creep have nothing to do with one another. Keep ya hands to yo self or wind up in the funny papers! At least some type of swamp is being drained anyway and it has nothing to do with politics or at least if you think it does, you are missing the point.

but the legal hassle sucks

reputation and pocket book got whacked

i don't think most folks realize the damage that accusations can do

It cheapens the story of the people who were hurt, and causes some folks to react with the usual dismissives (she was asking for it, hey if an older woman teacher hit on me i'd be grateful, these must be political in nature, etc).

We're going to have to have this conversation soon. I think the chances are high that there are going to be consensual "interactions" that go sour or someone just moves on, and next thing you know, someone's hittin' the bricks. This groupie phenomenon is a part of the male-power thing too, but it's more complicated than that. Not sure this is a productive way to use this thread so maybe I'll delete this post but hey.
