Believe all women! But only if it's convenient and against a Bad PersonTM
@ptitty1231, ah, I see you too are a man of taste and culture.
@ptitty1231, * Against who we think is a bad person
@ptitty1231, no one cared when Joe Biden was accused
What is believe all women, other than something I’d never do?
@theduuuude, believe all women was a left wing movement associated with the very early me too movement. It was the theory that because rape was such a heinous crime letting one rapist go free was worse than the possible false imprisonment of any innocent men. It gained steam at the same time as me-too as a political tool against the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, and has now been discarded and is being attacked since the right is now saying "you picked your own rules" against Joe Biden
@thrawnfett, It's like the movement is so stupid and hypocritical that it could only do longterm damage the longer it was used to further an agenda🤔
@Killing instincts , dude its nuts how hypocritical they are. Like how the governor of New York was upset that they pay more into the system but other states who don’t contribute as much, were receiving more assistance from the feds. Like, well buddy that’s your whole leftist plan isnt it or socialism or whatever people feel like calling it
@thrawnfett, I am inclined to believe (not going to argue the issue, just saying I believe) that Kavanaugh was likely guilty and a bad fit. Didn’t like the guy. Just my opinion.
I fall short of “believe ALL women” but I do think Joe has shown himself to be a bit liberal (see what I did there) with his physical affections. I had issues with most of the candidates the last few years on both sides but he was reeeeeaaaly low down my wish list. I’ll take any of the next five dem candidates over Joe. .... yes, even Bernie. I may take issue with his policy but I do believe he genuinely cares about people and is less in the corporate pocket than most.
@thrawnfett, it was also aimed at bret kavanaugh to block gim from being on the supreme court
Edit:Provably shouldve finished reading your comment first...
@MMSieBreeze, I may have phrased it differently but I essentially agreed with everything said... whatever the status of Kavanaugh’s innocence I agree that they wielded this phrase as a weapon against him and I do not lament its use against Biden.
@thrawnfett, it’s also something that Joe Biden championed with Title 9 and ruined college men’s lives. If you’re accused, you’re guilty. Fûcking Biden is the worlds biggest douche.
@big freedom, you shouldn’t call Biden a douche. I don’t believe that man has ever made a vagina wet.
How about we stop judging people by what they are accused of. Do I think there should be an investigation into every rape accusation? Yes. I also believe that ANYONE who falsifies ANY accusation should face the consequences.
“Believe all women” is also phenomenally sexist AGAINST women. It presumes that a woman is incapable of lying with malicious intent. The legal system shouldn’t believe ANYONE about ANYTHING without proper evidence.
Maybe trump & Biden are both pusssy grabbers??? I know; crazy. Trump said he likes grabbing them by the pusssy. & joe Biden likes to sniff girls(not boys....) (too many sniffing videos)
@Monter408, while both of those things are undeniably true, there is a stark difference in the severity of being a freaking creep around girls, and having a long string of court cases accusing one of rape, some of those being statutory, and them just being paid off, sometimes through illegal means.
Don't like either of these "men" but just pointing out the difference in what we *Know they've done.
@Monter408, when trump was saying it he was bragging about how women throw themselves at him. And while joe is undeniably creepy at times theres not enough evidence to say her claim is true so we should treat him as innocent.
@mas2de, which one are you talking about? Both have allegations against them, including at least one of a statutory nature.
@I Are Lebo, on Biden: 1 allegation of rape where he maintains that she should be heard even if he's lying through his teeth. 7 other women noted moments of him making them uncomfortable or just getting too close and being weird or at worst a touch in the thigh or forehead to forehead. I admit, guys weird and creepy, but 8 women felt it was enough to make a note of it. For you or me, that's 8 too many. For rich fvck bois that's almost nothing.
Vs Trump with 25 actual sexual assault allegations at least as bad as Biden's allegation from Reade, and court cases including women, plural, who were minors at the time. That doesn't even count all the girls who partied at Epstein's that Trump took into rooms. Biden didn't party with Epstein. Trump bragged about women letting him do what he wants, then calls those women liars and ugly when they tell the world he violated them including actual penis in vagina rape. Multiple accusations and cases of that.
It's not just "orange man bad". When...
@mas2de, someone is a piece of shjt, call them out on it. Hold them to it. Call a spade a spade and a rapist a rapist. Donald Trump is a serial rapist and sexual assaulter. For at least 50 years. Comparing Trump and Biden on sexual assault might as well be comparing murderers Jeffery Dahmer and some husband whose wife allegedly ran away or disappeared. Yeah he probably did it, but there's no proof. He's no Dahmer.
Btw, I found no statutory rape allegations against Biden online. Innappropriate comments to preteens in front of other people or touching foreheads at worst. The two men are not even in the same leagues here.
Edit: 9 women. one more teen allegation from an event Biden wasn't at. So 1 fingers penetration, a hug too long, the weird forehead thing, a kiss on the back of the head, and some comments to young girls. Vs several court cases including ones that were paid off for Trump + all the other crap.
@PoliticsGuard, so. Many. People.
@PoliticsGuard, you’re going to have a bad time here dude. Politics are in everything and we make fun of it around here. Trying to be the “anti-politics” guy around here is going to get real old, real fast.
@big freedom, I remember this community used to downvote politics in the olden days. Those were the good times, where comments were funny instead of opinionated
@PoliticsGuard, they were opinionated then, too. You just didn’t see it. Not much has changed over the last five years on here beyond the addition of gifs.
The article is an opinion piece where a feminist does some research on the #believeallwomen hashtag and how she found that conservatives started it. It’s an interesting read if you would like hear the story behind the headline as opposed to just reading a title and assuming the worst.
@iOS13, The average American: No
Like any leftist movement. The media and the right immediately take the most extreme version of what we want and blast it on full volume to make us look crazy. Works every time too. sometimes even works on us. for example: "some gun regulations" became "TAKE ALL THE GUNS" and now Dems are adopting that because they think that's what we want.
I don't think anyone what's to vote for someone who has a history of credible actions or sexual assault against them. Why vote at all if Neither party has the moral high ground?
@HappyBandit7, vote third party. Fûck D’s and R’s. They both SUCK.
