The stock photochop crap at the top of the article is tasteless by the time you're done reading the title of the article, let alone the first paragraph of the first table. Gross.

Those canít be true. A random user on DVDTalk said a woman canít rape a male. Itís been settled.

I'm just skimming around, but I think it is more of a "Women can't make men carry proton packs" argument.

Yeah, good god, couldn't they have found a more suitable stock image? Or just done without one?

^ no, they couldn't. Because it's click bait. All of the stories are from a reddit thread. I'm not saying each one is illegitimate, but the folks here sure were quick to say so many of the accusations in this thread were unverifiable and false, even with real names attached... So I don't know why any of them would believe a reddit thread of 100% anonymous people telling stories about other anonymous people.

Off topic....Dudes who who hold their Girl's/Wife's" purse get pussy. Those "too manly" to hold a purse for their girl...are just holding their own lonely dicks most days.

Naturally they have denied any connection calling it a coincidence. Poor optics in any case and the money should be returned.
Sorry Iím a little late, but I always love how cheap you can buy a politician. The shit pending against Harvey could cost him hundreds of millions, but he can get it canceled with a $25,000 bribe. Fucking A.

I would call the majority of these child abuse before "men being raped by women".

Yeah, I get that but, most people think only men rape children as well.

Asia Argento says it was her young accuser Jimmy Bennett who sexually assaulted her – and refuses to pay him any more money

Looks like CBS CEO Les Moonves will resign amid some new allegations against him. Probably as soon as Monday. CNN seems to think it's a done deal and will be announced soon.

Deadline says he won't get the $100M buyout that some media outlets are saying he's getting.

I was wondering that, too. Maybe CBS can wipe her memory and update her OS and get another year or two out of her before upgrading to a new model.

Seriously, though, that situation has to be really awkward for her.
