in reality, all of this has been a total load of old bollocks

SNL songs can be a bit patchy but this one hits home in a few places. I was laughing when I watched it but the thing Cecily Strong does about putting up her arm reminds me of dozens of similar situations I've been in. The end - about what's always ruined for women - is simply true.

As a young virgin I was groped at a Company Christmas Party by a forceful and highly sexual young lady. I, and others she assaulted that night, were nothing more than meat to her.

She has had a very successful business career.

Would you still have loved this more comparable scenario I wonder?

What a profoundly miserable thing to read this morning.
I don't know anything about you - at all - but wonder what goes through the mind of someone who sees a thread about assault where a lot of people are writing very heartfelt and painful things and thinks "what's needed here is some brevity!" I mean - I have this vision of you hunched over the computer giggling as you wrote it, imagining the virtual slaps on the back. Is it it more important for you to say things hoping for belly laughs than to be quiet and take the opportunity to listen?
But then - these are the comments that keep people quiet for a long, long time.
And it's easy on internet, of course. I don't imagine you in the ER with a freshly assaulted relative or friend leaning in and saying 'hey - hey! Guess what! I was at this party once, and..you'll never guess what!'
You poor, knuckle dragging sod.

:lol: :lol:

It’s not brevity, or indeed levity.

It’s just what I thought was an interesting true-story contrast, one that has only fairly recently come to mind. Of course in your twisted little agenda-driven one-eyed world that must mean I am making light of the subject and am dismissive of the damage caused by damaging sexual assaults.

I’m truly not.

But hey, as always, knock yourself out. You need a target, I understand that.

Let's take this at face value for a second. How does it contrast? What makes it interesting? What was YOUR agenda (god, what a distasteful word) in bringing it up?

damaging sexual assaults.


Damaging as opposed to what? If you're suggesting there's another kind, then yeah - you actually ARE kind of being dismissive.

And do the words "forceful," "highly sexual," and "meat" signify assault?

Hint: devoid of context, they do not.

Sounds very Bobby Knightish - he was the college basketball coach who infamously said if a woman is getting raped, she should just sit back and enjoy it.

Jokes are fine, but seeing the tenor of the posts, you might have read the room a little better. I think that's why you're getting the reaction you're getting.

Are we that sensitive we can't take questionable posts? His switch-gender post I more or less read as putting forward a situation with reversed roles possibly in order to mildly provoke possibly also/or to question the role of gender in the discussion. The dubious use of assault in this quote does look dodgier. But not in the league of suggesting raped women should enjoy it - he's just .. well boasting really .. that a woman actively approached him sexually and he enjoyed it. Use of 'assault' there is provocative but why rise to the bait? It certainly doesn't offend me - it reflects on him not me. (I was going to make a similar point in another thread about another topic. In fact I will get around to it.)
