    I just read an article from a feminist that is worried about the metoo campaign. There was worry that all it would take would be a few false accusations that took down a few good men and that the campaign could backfire and be viewed as a militant feminist thing. That men in business might say that the best way to protect themselves is to just not hire women. Problem solved. My only concern is for those that were just innocently flirting. If the women was into the man it's a date, but if not, it's harassment. It can be a fine line. Yes there are many pigs out there, but I don't know if it all should be considered harassment. It's obvious when there are threats or inappropriate touching, but when it's flirting, it may not be.

      Or - we could stop flirting and force women to make the first move.......

      Then sit back and watch homosapiens go extinct.

        perhaps that's just for the best. We were doing so well right up until everything started spiraling out of control.

          Man 'cements microwave to head' in Wolverhampton
          Why someone would decide that cementing their head inside a microwave is beyond me..

            I'd make a joke that maybe it was kid but the article said
            He and a group of friends
            so we know it wasn't him.

              A 29-year-old man has been charged after a snowman holding a rocket launcher was painted on the window of a republican support group's office in Londonderry.

              The image included the message: "Wishing you an Explosive Christmas."

                  Several people have voiced similar concerns.

                    Nikki Haley (Trumps Ambassador to the UN) when asked about the women that accuse Trump of sexual misconduct:

                    When asked about Trump's accusers by Dickerson on Sunday, Haley said the women should be heard.
                    "Well, I mean, you know, the same thing, is women who accuse anyone should be heard," Haley said. "They should be heard and they should be dealt with. And I think we heard from them prior to the election. And I think any woman who has felt violated or felt mistreated in any way, they have every right to speak up."
                    ...
                    "I'm proud of their strength," she added. "I'm proud of their courage. And I think that the idea that this is happening, I think it will start to bring a conscience to the situation, not just in politics, but in, you know, we've seen in Hollywood and in every industry. And I think the time has come."
                    ...

                    Haley echoed the statements from the White House about the accusations, telling Dickerson that whether the issue was settled during the election is "for the people to decide."

                    "You know, that's for the people to decide," Haley told Dickerson when asked if it was a settled issue following the election. "I know that he was elected. But, you know, women should always feel comfortable coming forward. And we should all be willing to listen to them."

                      Trump introducing "Newspeak" to the CDC:
                      https://www.dailykos.com/stories/201...ntrol-Thinking

                      The CDC got a list of words it isn't supposed to use anymore ... among them "evidence-based", "fetus", "transgender" or "diversity".
                      Seems like projects that use these words (in their project description/papers won't get federal funding anymore.

                      I thought 1984 already were a thing of the past

                          It's fully understandable that the current administration has a prob with using "science-based" and "evidence-based"

                            Urban planning is somewhat complicated in Baarle-Nassau...I wonder what would happen if Belgium or the Netherlands left the EU and enforced their borders?

                                The polic may be your friend and helper (well, at least in germany), but dn't count on the police to help you on every occasion.
                                Especially, don't use a police officer as masturbation helper if s/he is trying to restrain you

                                So happend in St. Petersburg (Florida) ...
                                a woman with a vodka bottle was sitting in a bus shelter (during rush hur) and simulating sex acts for the amusement of the motorists.

                                When a police patrol arrived (a black and a female officer) and the female officer tried to restrain her, she threw racial ephitets at the black officer and used the female officers left arm to sexually satisfy herself as well as licking said female officers right arm

                                Pity that neither bodycam footage of the incident exist, nor a more detailed description of the officers about the incident
