Shouldn't phony political sexual assault charges be prosecuted ?

    If determined as being so, This one will take some honesty that many are incapable of ,  in truth however you all know it has happened ,That's the problem  with the weaponization of law for political gain.
    Has the "Me Too" movement gone too far , Is it mostly political ?

    Well of course if it can be proven in a court of law that someone has lied about being sexually assaulted then they should be charged with a crime.

    I think it’s a little strange to say that women speaking up about being sexually assaulted has “gone too far” but I suppose I’m not surprised at this point. I don’t think you can really make an argument that for normal, non-celebrities the movement is political. It’s literally just women saying that they have been assaulted/harassed at one point in their lives and I have yet to see any “regular” person name another “regular” person in their story.

    Do you think that women saying they’ve been assaulted is inherently political or do you think that perhaps there may be a small few who might abuse the premise to further some particular narrative?

      Within what , six months , All of these allegations  seemingly for personal and not political purposes  have what , just cropped up ?    Since the sixties in America the feminist revolution has cut swathes into the traditional fabric of male dominance ,rightfully so and yet ,  we're all  supposed to believe that these women have just grown the nerve endings to come forward ?

      Every allegation is to be believed right ? Yet , almost all of them are alleged in cultures of the WIDE open doors of  Hollywood or the transparency of   D.C politics ?    Believe me , I stand behind every  legit claim by any woman , always .    But a lot of this is just a little suspect .

      When  and if they destroy careers  willfully and no charges are to come from them ? Yes , then charges should be brought against the women too .  The exploitation of media to destroy any  career without the justice system involved is strange ?

    … and to what extent did the women resist? They could have said, "No ...'   right?
    They may have put up with the bad behavior of these men who were in various positions of power because they (the women) were going to get something out of it … well did they .. get something out of it? A job, career advancement, part in a movie, political position, etc. This possibility/probability could and should be researched for each claim.


    "Within what , six months , All of these allegations  seemingly for personal and not political purposes  have what , just cropped up ?"

    Its enough to make one ask,  Were they PAID by so m e o  n   e … ?
    But, the question remains, To what end?

    Were some charges (in this current helping of media presentations) found to be phony, ahorseback?

      Interesting article , Kathryn .   Campus rapes I know are the newest unreported -or undereported assault . Sad . No matter how much of it is false .  Seems we are in a new and improved sexual revolution when they get tried in the media however .  I mean that  alone is a new phenomena .
