#MeToo

Pound me too - always makes me laugh

Anyway, this is an interesting article on the numbers and the demographics of the high profile people accused.

I posted the "pound me too" joke on FB a while back, and a super-ultra-liberal FOAF ^ 2 just about had a keyboard aneurysm - totally worth it. She's one of those that invented a single-word name for herself by munging her and her ex-husband's names.

Yea, I spent may years in the days of dial up modems commands. The pound sign, tilde, back slash and forward slash were just common lingo. My brain reads # as pound every-time.

If there is any good to come out of this, it may be the actions quoted below.

Quote:
Some structural reforms have taken root in the past year. Unions have successfully backed legislation to protect entertainment industry employees in California and hotel housekeepers and janitors in Chicago. State legislatures have enacted 17 bills designed to curb bad behavior; an additional 12 bills are pending, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

Contracts that set the terms of employment and of financial transactions are now more likely to establish consequences for sexual harassment or other bad behavior. Awareness of the problem has prompted even employers such as the Milwaukee County library system to adopt education and prevention campaigns.
NPR covered the hotel housekeepers thing today, apparently many of them are sexually assaulted and the women have a difficult time getting management and the police to react.

The part of "it comes with the job" is going to be no more.

The opening article has the most citations of any non-technical research paper I have ever seen.

Probably as many words as the article.

Pound me too

Better than:
Pound Me Again

I guess.

For people fixin´ on pounding their way into fame and fortune, and failed.


I wonder how much truth, in one way or the other, that statement holds.

Exactly. Gotta wonder how many women, particularly in Hollywood, made their careers flat on their backs. Conversely, how many have tried and failed. Women can be horribly manipulative, vindictive, dishonest creatures. "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned."

Bingo. I left the employ of one company after twelve years when my boss hit on me. She later made partner- after she did her best to fk me up when I turned her down. And yes- I told my wife of 39 years. An amazing angel who's proof there are some remarkable wonderful women out there.

Why is "entertainment" not under the same section as "arts and music"? And what is "policy industry"?

I'm guessing "Policy" is lobbying

I thought a 'me too movement' was having to poop at the same time as someone else.

I'm very sorry to hear this, Cliff.

No woman should have to endure any of that crap.

In my lifetime I have to say that most men behave themselves pretty good. But there are a percentage that act like complete a-holes and can't help themselves being a swine around women. And that's not fair to swine who are way further up on the evolution scale.

If I ever was present during any such event, I would do everything I could to defend the lady and make sure the deviate never did it again.

Totally inappropriate. Sexual abuse of our mothers and daughters is serious and it is never appropriate to mock efforts to stop it.

Seems to me that all the butthurt towards folks who have never abused a woman in their life and all the false accusations do not help the cause. Much like refusing to pay respect to the National Anthem.

Let’s hope so. My 17 year old granddaughter wants to be a singer. The idea that she’d be Donald Trump/Harvey Weinsteined because of her career choice makes me sick. Hopefully the days of having to screw the gatekeeper to get into your chosen career are behind us. Hopefully.

Let us hope. But, most women succeed without that.

Whereas males are pure as the driven snow (especially older, unfairly put upon by modern society, white males that I keep reading the laments for in PARF and OT)?

So you strawman what he didn't say to make an argument.
