    Another place this happens frequently is in academia. I wonder if we will start seeing high ranking professors and school Presidents etc. taken down for relationships with female college students?

    I think the claims against Franken and Keillor are the weakest. There doesn't seem to be a pattern of abuse, the "offenses" were in both cases minor, and everyone knows comedians have to be given some leeway: comedy is dangerous. It's supposed to be dangerous.

    The real problem is a pattern of abuse, especially with unsuspecting young job applicants and other innocents. Mark Halperin, Bill O'Reilly.

    Another problem is corruption: when the men pay women off with taxpayers' money as a number of congressmen have done past and present, or when they have special contracts with "harassment insurance" like O'Reilly had.

    Everyone does realize this isn't about men and women, right? This is a mass hysteria, a witch hunt, and it can't last. It is based on politics, left fighting right first, but then the right came roaring back and seems to have lowered the boom on the left, which has more publicized offenders as of now.

    This is also about purging the aged from power. It's nearly all old men: old reporters, old movie stars, especially old politicians. They are 86, 87, 88 in the case of Conyers and they Just Won't Quit. So this "social movement" is actually a purge of superannuated people making room for the next generation. Where are all the scandals about 40-year-olds? There was one 37-year-old Hispanic congressman the other day who went out, but I think he's the first under 70.

    Dartmouth College got hit last month --- THREE psych profs. Out, suspended, can't come on campus and though the administration and everyone up to the governor has admitted there was something sexual going on, nobody will specify. Very frustrating. :wink:

    Well said. No, women don't like to be grabbed in our "cute" either. I remember an older man who was constantly petting, hugging, patting a young woman because she was so "soft," as he said. She didn't know what to do or say; she left to work with a competitor, never confronting him.
