Nope, you got the wrong photo. Here's the correct one:



That would be Kylie Bax, (Sports Illustrated swimsuit covergirl) with Melania and the 2 perverts.


Barely even recognized Melania... guess she's had some work done.

Are Trump voters in denial? Clinton had 3 accusers, O'Reilly had 6 accusers, and Trump had 17. Though to be fair, Cosby had 54.


Funny how all the Trump accusers appeared a month before the election and disappeared the day after. So there is no denial going on.

It seems the line between harassment and flirting is vague.

What for instance Weinstein might say to a woman would now be sexual harassment, but if Brad Pitt were to say the exact same thing it would be a welcome flirtation.

Many of these Hollywood harlet's are not innocent, and dress extremely provocatively, and do indeed flirt with sexual innuendo's to climb the social ladder.

Weinstein appears to be a pig, but where do you want this to end? Some women take the same path past a group of construction workers every day and an occasional wolf whistle doesn't become a headline. If the man does something illegal, bust them. Otherwise there is no economic harm that needs to be paid for. What if this is extortion on the woman's part? Why does the man always have to pay?


Based on what I read below, in the workplace, unless there is a specific policy you can ask a co-worker for a date and it won't be sexual harassment even if you're reported for sexual harassment. Only if you persist after being turned down.

How is that a problem for anyone? Now you can guess by someone's behavior that they are interested in you without explicit permission, but anything you do, you could be wrong. You could also be right. But that risk is not mitigated just because you "thought" you were wanted.

Quote:
Q: Is it sexual harassment if I ask a co-worker for a date?
A: Some employers have responded to sexual harassment claims, or the threat of such claims, by enacting policies against dating or intimate relationships between co-workers. While there is no law that requires such a policy, in most states there is no law that forbids such a policy. If your employer does not have a policy against employees dating one another, it is best if you follow a "one strike and you're out" rule. If you ask a co-worker for a date, and the co-worker lets you know that he or she is not interested, don't ask again. Repeated requests for a date may constitute harassment, while a single, polite request probably will not.

So if an accusation surfaces just before the election, then the politician must be innocent? By that logic, Juanita Broaddrick must be a liar.

Quote: The New York Times
The allegation was passed on to reporters for The Los Angeles Times and The New York Times in the waning days of the 1992 Presidential campaign. Regarding it as the kind of toxic waste traditionally dumped just before Election Day, both newspapers passed on the story -- that a nursing-home executive had been sexually assaulted in 1978 by Bill Clinton, then the Attorney General of Arkansas.

At the least, you must consider the source. Like I asked, what happened to all these Trump accusers?

Ahem:

Trump Given A Subpoena For All Documents Relating To Assault Allegations

Quote:
A woman who said Donald Trump groped her has subpoenaed his campaign for documents about “any woman alleging that Donald J. Trump touched her inappropriately.” Trump has denied her accusations and is fighting the subpoena.

If you want to complain about someone reporting sexual assault, try this one on.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/heather-lind-accuses-ex-prez-george-hw-bush-of-sexual-assault/ar-AAu0xqF?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartanntp

Personally, yes I would be annoyed and grossed out but it's like reporting dogs for sniffing your crotch or babies for throwing up on you IMO.

Also, you're in zero danger, and could clock the person who isn't even able to chase you 5 feet.



YMMV
