Yoga pants and Uggs — OUT
Sexual Herassment Claims — Teh Noo Hawtness

Should a thing like this really be such a trend it even has it’s own, self-revelatory hashtag: #MeeeeeeToooooooo?

It’s like if you haven’t claimed somebody grabbed or groped you — or at least showed you his unit — yer consigned to the bin of ugly chix. How far is this gonna go in the scrabble for Victim Status: Sexual Herassment Division [VS:SHD]? Did you ever wink at a cute waitress? Did you ever tell a woman she looked nice that day? Go out front and wait for the Shame Bus.

and this:

Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) informed NBC’s sleepy-eyed Chuck Todd on Tuesday that $15 million in taxpayer money had been paid out over the years to settle sexual harassment suits filed against members of Congress.

Wasn’t she the one complaining a month ago that No One EVAR gets in trouble in Congress for anything like that?

$15 million. That’s some expensive payout.

And why do these women all demand money? Almost sounds like they’re haggling over the price…

It’s not like I haven’t experienced this sort of treatment from random ash-olays over the years. I’ve talked with plenty of pals with similar experiences. I geddit. But a carefully timed “wouldn’t hafta push it so hard if it weren’t so sad and tiny” reference usually shut things down. And when it didn’t… I never wanted a job that much. Guess I’m just Privileged™…and Coldhearted… and an independent old biddy…
…and cynical. don’t forget cynical.

Anecdotal evidence aside, this seems like a dangerous meme to get rolling. Especially in these daze of the Privileged by Victimhood™ Class. Especially in these daze of no evidence, no proof, trial by media [social and otherwise]. How ya gonna prove something that happened 20 years ago? In a “she said / he said” who’s gonna believe him? Facts? Fairness? Equality before The Law? *pffffft*. What a way to get back at some guy who kept his hands to himself but was [or you saw him as] an ash-olay in other ways…

And money. Why is money the fix-it-all? What about another specific penalty? Everybody now knows yer a perv; that used to be enough.

All this demanding of large sums of money just seems to make the whole thing even more …oogie. “You touched me without my permission: give me money!”

    Taxpayers‘ money?!
    I wanna see the appropriation line for that.
    Thennn we’ll have a little line-of-duty investigation.

    Sounds like a good way to move a little hush-money or dirty-tricks money.

    So… Why doesn’t ol’ Jackie name names?

    Sorta loses impact if we don’t know who/when.

    Teddy and Dodd with waitress sandwiches and worse?

    Barney Franks with the homosexual whorehouse run out of his basement?

    Names never matter if they’re followed by a D. Case in point #6 above… Teddy and Chris and Barney never were called to answer for their indiscretions. A little bad press, a few fund-raisers, some off-the-record meetings with the “right people” and it’s all water under the bridge.

    Did I say that?
