As the Bee puts it, "Here's the number of people who are putting rape and harassment and bad dates in one bucket: literally nobody is saying they're the same!" "What many fail to understand is that it doesn't have to be rape to ruin your life, and it doesn't have to ruin your life to be worth speaking out about", Bee argued. For example, let's talk about creating effective laws to protect women's rights in the workplace and protect women who report harassment and assault from retaliation. More than anything, what this latest #MeToo story reminds us is how, just as so many women identify with the women who come forward, many men are able to identify with men who are accused.

If men can't even (and more so aren't expected to) tell when a woman they are consensually engaging in sex with is having an orgasm, how they are going to be taught to understand all of the other signs? Grace alleges that later, Ansari made sexual advances, toward which she attempted to signal her discomfort before eventually leaving. "I want to share this because I think this gives some insight into the caliber of the person who wielded that nuclear weapon at Aziz Ansari's career".

Is Aziz Ansari's career over?

Fianna Fáil leader backs repeal of 'harmful' law on abortion
Yesterday, a Galway Fine Gael TD said it's inevitable a woman will die because of abortion pills if current laws are not changed. The leader of Fianna Fail Micheal Martin has come out to say that he will vote for abortion in the upcoming abortion referendum.

At IU, we are reminded by every bathroom stall that help is available to sexual assault victims, yet we have been socialized to believe that coercing women into sexual acts is normal. In a statement, Ansari said that while the sexual activity was "by all indications was completely consensual", he was "surprised and concerned" when she told him the next day she was uncomfortable. Depending on how readers were primed to see the ink blot, it can be taken as evidence that the ongoing cultural audit is exactly on track-getting more granular in challenging unhealthy sex-related power dynamics-or that it has gone off the rails, and innocent men are now suffering, and we are collectively on the brink of a sex panic. "I took her words to heart and responded privately". Yet, I believe that this particular case sets the #MeToo movement back some. "It is necessary and long overdue".

The reporter who broke the story accusing Aziz Ansari of sexual misconduct sent HLN host Ashleigh Banfield's bosses a scathing email about the 50-year-old journalist after she criticized the Ansari story on-air on Monday. "That doesn't mean we have to be happy about any of them".

"People like me had to wade through a sea of reprehensible dicks to build the world we now enjoy", Bee said. "And women get to talk about it if men don't live up to those standards, especially if that man wrote a book about how to sex good", making a reference to Ansari's book, Modern Romance. And if that seems harsh, I'm sorry. (First of all, hello, nearly anyone who's not bonkers can hold it together for a few dates.) No wonder there's so many communication issues - how the heck could you know someone's communication style after one dinner? And if you lie and just say yes because you would just rather end things here, they just nod and say "I thought I felt it".
