A bit like your logic jump when calling Antrim a racist.

No one was saying patting someone on the butt was the same as rape, though.

Damon making the sorts of logical jumps that would mean he'd fit in very well around here.

Is Damon's comments not in a similar vein to the open letter penned by 100 leading French ladies the other week?

Could you point out where abouts in that piece he said they did?

Logical jumps indeed  ::)

It was headline news around the world yesterday that some guy in Australia patted a woman on the butt - so if anything, there seems to be even more mass hysteria around that than rape.

Err, it is being covered as part of a larger story of systematic sexual assault by men is to be expected. Would you be ok if some random fúcker grabbed your arse if you were a woman? The "what the fúck?" here is someone defending Damon for trying to draw equivalence with a far more grisly act as if only the worst behaviour should be covered. That's a poor mindset to have in the first place, let alone one to espouse publically. Damon's best buddies in Hollywood - the Afflecks - have been deeply embroiled in these allegations so the perception he has coming out minimising anything is not good to say the least.

Guess what lads, if you're not a creep you're going to be just fine. There's nothing marginalised about men in society and some here and elsewhere would do well to remember that basic fact of life before trying to pour scorn on something that in general is very positive for women and men.

You said no-one was saying patting someone on the butt was the same as rape, I'm pointing out that there was a far greater media reaction to someone being patted on the butt yesterday than there was to the (doubtless many) rapes that took place.

Obviously all sexual assault is wrong, the rest of what you've written is drivel.

I'd suggest you look at other media outlets for your news. You must have missed the story about the horrific gang rape and murder of a 15 year old Indian girl.

That was last week - and i had to google to find it. I saw the story I've referred to everywhere on Tuesday. I don't look for news beyond the major outlets. My email provider and a few other sites I use have news sections which are forced onto me, so they have an element of control over what I (and most of the online population) see.

They clearly didn't deem that rape and murder you refer to as newsworthy, but they did a minor sexual assault. That is my point.

Please don't pull something out of your arse so obviously and then claim what someone else has said is drivel.

How is that pulled out of my arse? Did it not get massive media coverage on that day, moreso than any rape that took place?

The rest of your post was drivel because you just went on a morally outraged spiel in an attempt to impress an imaginary audience with your strong sense of justice. That's exactly the issue with these topics, there's always someone so needy for approval they just join in with the lynch mob and shout down other views using arguments they are regurgitating.

Catherine Deneuve was castigated for having her opinion, and was forced to apologise, no doubt Brigitte Bardot will similarly be. Does anyone think that they were condoning rape or sexual assault? Is it good to shut down anyone who doesn't agree with you? They're right, it definitely is going too far. The Aziz Ansari claim was absolutely ludicrous. Worldwide coverage of a girl having her ass patted similarly so. No doubt that makes me a rape/sexual assault apologist  ::), but I'd rather say (elements of) what i think rather than place myself in an echo chamber.

Don’t waste your time with this gombeen. He believes calling Keita a defensive midfielder is racist. Everybody’s a victim in Syf world.

This stuff happens everywhere. And until a few months ago a lot of it was being shoved under the rug in the nonchalant manner Damon was attempting to.

Ask your girlfriends or wives what they and their friends put up with on a daily basis and you might start to have some empathy for the issue.

That white moose cafe lad is a w**ker too though. I had an acquaintance a few years ago who visited his place, she was a nice enough person, opinionated but generally harmless and wouldn't do anyone any great harm. She was an obese, mid-30's woman and she gave the cafe a poor review on FB, trip adviser and the likes and he proceeded to tear her to shreds very publicly about her gluttonous behavior. More or less he called her a fat b1tch. It was a dirty enough act and championed quite vocally by a crowd of w**kers who thought it was funny. I wouldn't have passed remarks on it only for the fact I knew her.
