give 'em the ol' razzle dazzle
I am a man. And I've dated and known a lot of women. They're hysterical, irrational, jaded, bitter, and untrustworthy.You're the reason why #MeToo exists. And if you really need this story to make you feel better about always choosing the guy's side I question your conviction to your ideals. Why do you need a reason to believe the man? If you're really going to commit to that you don't need reasons.
Am I saying guys can't be asshole abusers? No. But this nonsense of "believe the woman BECAUSE she's a woman" is horseshit.
Should she be listened to? Absolutely. Is rape and sexual manipulation OK? Absolutely not. Can it and does it happen when men in positions of power get too big for their britches? Sometimes, sure, maybe.
So if an accusation is made, then OK. Get me some proof, or at least some witnesses or some corroborating circumstantial context. Otherwise, sorry, no dice. I believe in innocent until proven guilty. This is America and that's how it f***ing works.
Better to let a rapist go free because there was not enough proof to convict than to imprison a man because some chick has a vendetta and makes false accusations. f*** THAT.
Interesting that none of the women Cosby "raped" were the ones that went on to successful careers on their own merit.
Interesting that all of Weinstein's victims waited until their celebrity was guaranteed to come out and pillory him.
Ryan Adam's literally lost his career because Mandy Moore said he was "mean." It's f***ing bullshit.
That's my take. If you don't agree, fine.
