We also have posters saying -

What's the big deal about grabbing a boob or slapping a butt....everyone does it.

Isn't it strange how this comes out just before JL is released....sounds like a conspiracy to me.

I sure hope this story doesn't keep people from going to see JL...we need good BO numbers.



Weeding this stuff out is not easy.

I don't see a lot of that stuff, so I guess you do a decent job.

I don't know about that. I said "Snowflakes, man" in response to what's being made about Momoa's old GoT-rape joke. It had nothing to do with Affleck's accusers.

I know you see a lot of insanity here Lee, but on that scale, how has the last day been?

That I DID see, and what that guy said is clearly NOT okay.

Been wondering the same thing myself. Seems a lot of people's true colors are starting to show.

McGowan really shouldn't have done that. She has all my sympathy, but if that number was for someone she wanted to point her supports towards, releasing that kind of info can be incredibly dangerous. I hope that wasn't the case and this was just a technicality.

That is so much better....makes you sound like a saint. People complain about someone making "Rape" jokes (in today's society where there are major calls to end the "rape culture" talk and actions that people feel condone and encourage sexual harassment of women)...and your response is that they are "snowflakes". You are not making your comments sound better.

What stands out for me is how some people don't know what legally constitutes sexual assault, and that getting a charge to stick is hard in the first place.

I don't know if Weinstein is being charged. This doesn't appear to be a priority for law enforcement.

Now imagine if he was an 11 year-old black boy caught sharing marijuana.

On a scale of 1-10......11.

People are in multiple threads and forums discussing it. Everyone has an opinion but only a few are thinking before they post. For awhile there was a real mob mentality of believe every minor rumor and scream your disgust at it. There is still some that ignore facts and civility.

I wasn't trying to start a beef with Lee, my question was legit. It seems DC fans are coming under a lot of fire now, and the situation with Ben Affleck is akin to dumpsters being filled with kerosene...
Let's not forget the *real* victims in all this...the DC fans.

Next time you want to question a mod's 'generalizing', keep in mind all of the posts you don't see because we spend so much time deleting them from these threads. We see a lot more here than you.

This all comes from a culture of not valuing women as autonomous people. The entire education system needs an overhaul.

Toddlers need to be taught that their female friends aren't objects they win when they do well in school. And that their bodies aren't a zoo attraction. Just these two provisions would eliminate so much toxicity.

A combination of statutes of limitation, an army of expensive lawyers and friends in high places presumably.

Since the release of the New York Times story, I have seen posters here discuss their own experiences. Harrowing experiences. Seeing those stories you would hope would put this situation into perspective for those that might not get it. That it would become more acutely obvious that if you are making one of these "jokes" or downplaying what is being talked about here in general, there is a real chance you are doing that in the presence of someone who has had to suffer through these gross acts.

It's like we live in the world where they learned about sex from an episode of Family Guy:

I think that the FBI just doesn't give a damn. They're concerned with drugs, smuggling, terrorism, that sort of thing. White collar crimes, sexual assault, etc don't get prosecuted nearly as much.

But do these women know the pain and suffering of a fanboy triggered by different opinion on a movie? /s

A broken criminal justice system and a sexist society.

Ironically Trump might just direct the FBI's focus on this.
