They aren't Trump supporters. They are Moore supporters.

If you're going to deride someone, at least get the person correct.

In my opinion ALL men are guilty of some kind of sexual misconduct against women at some point in their life. That includes Gay men. Gay men treat women worse than straight men sometimes.

Now women are coming out saying that they realize now, that what did not bother them years ago, should have, by todays standards.

Sexism has been watered down so far, that we are all Fu*ked fellas... especially Hairy.

Maybe. But it really depends on the woman as well. If a man makes a move she likes,,,;fine. If he makes one she doesn't the time to object is then, not forty yeas later.

Women (and fathers) who don't teach their daughters to stand up for themselves are a guilty as the men who take advantage of them.

Proper sexual conduct is not a law of the land. And today's standard, law or no law, might well be different than a few generations back And no law of he land will protect girls from harm better than their own ability to make good decisions. And that only comes from good parenting. And an environment of support when the event happens, and the woman complains.

Did the Washington Times list the stats/demographics of who was involved in their pole? Not that any media would eeeever slant anything, of course.

it bothered us but many did not have a recourse. I was lucky. The first time a guy tried to put his hands on me in one job, it was playful enough but I am ticklish in my sides. he pokes me on each side as he was walking in back of me to go to the bathroom. It was a long row of booths near a wall and I was taking an order (waitress). My automatic reaction was I kicked backwards with one sized 71/2 nurses oxford shoed foot (circa 1970s). Nobody ever bothered me at that job again. In nursing I never had anyone touch me except patients. At a security job a man came up behind me and pressed his body on mine picking me up in the air. I reported it and although he was a supervisor on his job and very talented, he was moved to 3-11 shift. Had he been my direct boss he would have been fired. A female officer I knew who worked another district, came to me and thanked me. She was a tall, tall lady and you would think not scared of anything, but she had not brought his advances to her up because-she wasn't sure who to report it to, and thought she might lose her job.
Went to nursing school with a lady X Airforce. guy tried to rape her, she reported it and they asked her to leave not him. they gave her her benefits and that's how she paid her schooling. but she was crushed at first because she had wanted to get her rn in the AF and see other countries.
Yes it's time all that old shid is over with.

Alabama is deep red; often they can't find a democrat to run in various elections. for instance when the present u.s. attny gen ran he got like 98% of the vote. I think it was voter turnout, people staying home that gave it to jones
