  1. Genuinely terrifying.
  2. I should have been clearer....I meant your line of thinking re: how I viewed the victim. I assure you, I do not view her a lesser because of her association with Hannity. I am familiar with her from a decade ago and she always made a good impression. I also thought her interview with Jake Tapper was pretty genuine.
  3. Well there's a selection bias there, right? The more erratic a given former player behaves, the more likely that player is to be examined after death. And if CTE is truly causing or significantly contributing to that erratic behavior, its going to keep popping up. I'm more interested in the players who DONT show symptoms and what their brains look like. If I had take a wild guess, I'd guess many/most of them have CTE as well. Or at least many of the same indicators.
  4. I think as soon as a reliable test for CTE in the living is found, the entire football infrastructure collapses. Why? Because I'm fairly confident that CTE isn't a "concussion" issue, it's a football issue. If think if you tested every single NFL player, you'd find the condition in a large majority of players. Concussions a quasi-red herring in the current debate, imo. While they are concerning, they are merely one part of a greater puzzle.
  5. This is a good case for why we need to be able to discern and distinguish between unsavory acts.
  6. "Over the last few months, all of us — including and especially men who respect women — have been forced to take a good, hard look at our own actions and think (perhaps, shamefully, for the first time) about how those actions have affected women," he said. "For instance, that picture. I don't know what was in my head when I took that picture, and it doesn't matter. There's no excuse. I look at it now and I feel disgusted with myself. It isn't funny. It's completely inappropriate. It's obvious how Leeann would feel violated by that picture. And, what's more, I can see how millions of other women would feel violated by it — women who have had similar experiences in their own lives, women who fear having those experiences, women who look up to me, women who have counted on me." I mean....he's right. Also, it just reminded me that I DO know this lady. She used to be on Poker After Dark.
  7. I specifically said I wasnt doing that so I'm not sure how it becomes my "guilt by association game." As for your line of thinking...I assure you, it's incorrect. However, I think the idea that appearances on any given talking head's show are of equal value and effect is crazy. Any given personality with a forum should be judged upon their own merits. And frankly, Hannity's transition from standard intellectually dishonest hack to mainstream Alex Jones comes with consequences. Not for this victim but certainly for Hannity himself.
  8. I'm not aware of that lady's associations and typically prefer to avoid the guilt by association game. However, given Hannity's craven and shameless approach to the country in general, being a frequent guest of his ISNT the best look. It doesnt necessary change how I view her story but any guilt by association with Sean Hannity situation that exists is 100% of his own making. Which sort of underscores the necessity for civil and mature discourse, in general.
  9. I'm not sure I buy this. Simply because the accuser has a recollection and direct involvement in the kiss misconduct, whereas she has retrospective involvement in the "grope." There are a number of perfectly reasonable things that could cause her to classify that picture as a disgusting grope. While I think I disagree with that level of classification, I totally understand how feelings of shame or helplessness could get her to that mindset.
  10. Slippery slope is a fallacy so I'm hesitant to get down with that. But yes to the rest of it.
  11. You act like this is some "Trump as Justice League Champion" situation. Honestly, this post is concerning for someone that is detaching from reality. I hope you're well. Genuinely. This is scary stuff.
  12. I don't think anyone is suggesting that victims of assaults be told to "buck up" or "shut up." Instead, I think the position being asserted has more to do with judgment of the alleged perpetrator and that perpetrator's actions. When you start allowing victims carte blanche to define all aspects of the wrongs done against them, you're opening to the door to all sorts of unequal treatment, for everyone involved.
  13. With all due respect, this is a strange approach. I don't think its a crazy approach but man....it leads us down a pretty unsustainable path.
  14. I understand being hesitant to play the "which is worse" game when we're talking about grievous actions. Child molestation vs. murder isnt a discuss I'm all that willing to have because both are so far beyond the pale that it really is distasteful to try to rank them. But in the course of more mundane ill acts, we simply have to be able to construct reasonable prioritizations. That doesnt mean consensus and it doesnt mean the "lesser" offense is acceptable. But jeez....lets stop with the strange dichotomy stuff. Especially when we're talking about offenses of a similar character.
  15. I know that....I was merely looking for a word that captured the negative characterization of the action in question. That was where I landed and I didnt feel like doing a deeper dive into the dome.
