    There is no such thing as rehabilitation for people like him. He will continue to abuse other people regardless of how many time he goes into rehab. Once a deviate always a deviate.

    I know of one cure but it involves surgery and the use of a catheter.

    This Hollywood thing about exploiting women has gone on for probably as long as we have had movies made, and from what I have read, it is not just the adult hopeful actresses, but maybe also the children.
    Even if they didn’t face the casting couch part of becoming famous, it seems like children were also used in some movies that when we look back on it, were actually pretty scandalous.
    Here is a clip that shows some of the old Shirley Temple movies, and they were really obviously showing that pretty little girl in some sexual poses.
    One wonders just how far this sort of thing went......

    Now George Takei (Sulu from Star Trek) is being accused of drugging someone's drink and having his way with him, according to Fox, and many other places.

    It seems like there are new ones coming up all of the time, and being accused of something that happened 20-40 years ago, and with not much to prove it is even true.
    I think that this is not a good thing because when some people do this because they are being paid off to do it, then people are not as apt to believe it if someone really is telling the truth.
    I am pretty skeptical of the ones who say it happened way back in the past, and never mentioned it all of this time, until it makes a difference in some way. When it is someone who has always been admired as a good person (like Bill Cosby) and they are accused of taking advantage of women, then it also makes it harder for people to believe in anyone, because who is going to be the next one accused of some kind of sex crime.
    Sometimes, I think that a lot of this stuff is just diversion, or to keep people stressed out all of the time. Plus, the ones who are actually committing these kinds of things can keep the spotlight off of themselves as long as it is pointed at someone else, guilty or framed.

    Saw and read article about all these claims-29 as of today have been accused. You have to wonder, what are these people's idea of sexual
    harassment ? I think perhaps it is time to re-define sexual harassment. Big deal, someone whacked your hinney with a newspaper, and said Nice Butt...
    is this really reason to bring this up -Now? I think not.

    My doctor sexually harassed me recently. As he was leaving the room, he put his hand on my shoulder and gave it a pat. :eek: Should I "Go Public?" :D

    This is one of those times when it would be wiser not to post what my first thought was.

    Another goes down: Matt Lauer. I just heard this when I got up early and turned the TV on.

    I was glad to hear a commentator on CNN a couple of days ago address that there is abuse by people in power across the work place and men and women are victimized. Yet in the end few have any rights and if things become intolerable (which happened to me) the only choice is to get another job.

    Garrison Keillor just went down too, and I thought he had retired.

    I haven't heard just what it was that he did, but it is confirmed that he was fired over it. There was a time when I looked forward to Prairie Home Companion but in the last several years of Keillor doing it, I had lost interest in it. He was replaced on PHC a couple of years ago, and I had thought Garrison Keillor had retired. Apparently not, because he was fired.
