Re: When You Wish Upon a Weinstein

This thread has descended into one hilarious shit-show, wow.

Obviously, logically speaking, not all rich and powerful people are wankers through and through, though they may sometimes behave like one... but then don't we all? Some are charitable philanthropists who want to make the world a better place, some are outright despots, and others are somewhere in-between.

When you spend 2 pages essentially writing nothing more than: "Oh yes they are" and "Oh no they aren't", you know it's time to step away from the interweb and go and make a cup of tea.

You seem to be obsessed with my previous job. Have you got issues you need to resolve? Were you bullied by your teachers at school?

You know that an expat forum isn't really the place to work through your problems. Would you like me to see if I can find a counsellor for you? Which language would you prefer for your sessions?

you posted up random names of rich people, all of which (McCartney aside) have very well document histories, easily found on google, of ruthless business practices. The hundreds of thousands of people they have caused to be unemployed just so they can make more money, their anti competitive business practices (which they have been found guilty of) etc etc.

You bore me now

See, that is what I'm arguing: Unless he is a friend of yours..
I think this actually is the main problem with witch-hunts based on assumptions and one sided testimony. While Loz can totally share his opinion or how he interpreted the news, accusations based on one sided report, promoted by biased media just assassinate people's honor, without any way to defend themselves or being listened to. Hysterics. It will put the real victims of real crap in even more disadvantaged position and women will have even harder time to fight being stereotyped as hysterical. So unless we were there, or unless these folks are friends or something..we never know enough to condemn.

As to how important correct phrasing is:
<<Nelly has been accused of sexual assault by three women, including Monique Greene, who claims she raped him at a Seattle show in October.>>

Can't figure out what she accuses him of? Not having reported her?

I don't need to rebut gross ignorant generalisations presented as FACT! loz should provide the proof.

Successful, wealthy powerful men are wankers. WRONG, there are many who are not. Where is your evidence? you made the assertion

As a general rule, you don't get to become successful and powerful without being a wanker. WRONG. where is your proof?

They also go to these events to behave like wankers, but because they don't want people to know that they're behaving like wankers so they have non-disclosure agreements WRONG. How do you know?

There is no bingo hall in CH - WRONG AGAIN

Re: When You Wish Upon a Weinstein

Whilst the outraged press keeps the squeezing this story, it seems most people can see this for what it is:

Whilst on the topic of sexual harassment and charities, I wonder how long before the press realise that their darling Brendan Cox fits very nicely into this theme.

My first thought was "yaaawn, yet another anti-vaxxer" when I saw his post. After all what else could a domain name like "natural news" mean? But if you dig a bit, you can't help but realise that the reproach may well have merit.

See here for example

Keep in mind though that the five deaths mentioned in the article on "natural news" were caused by (I paraphrase) 2 snake bites, one allergic reaction, one girl fell off a roof, and the fifth died from a disease that can't possibly be linked to the vaccines.

So ALL men are wankers, rich and powerful or not.

In fact, everybody is or will become a wanker. Utopia! Pure socialism! We are all equal!

Re: When You Wish Upon a Weinstein

The more that comes out about this it appears that it has so much in common with the Jimmy Savile scandal. Basically everyone knew and did nothing. Surely this has to be the reason that all these celebs are rushing forward now to play the victim. Seems to me that the very same people were the enablers.
