James was right to be worried. In the two days since their last meeting, Becky's feelings about the encounter had "shifted," according to the report. She told investigators that her mother noticed the hickeys while they were video chatting -- the hickeys made her feel "disgusted" because it was as if James had been "marking me as his own," she said. Becky's mother agreed with her that she should break things off with James. "You were definitely violated," said Becky's mother, according to the report.

Interesting choice of pseudonyms. What did Becky ever do to deserve such a bad rep?

We all know who James is. James is still cool. He's always been cool.

"Me Too" taken too far."

Did "me too" pin someone's arms and cover someone's mouth to silence the screams of terror as it assaulted someone's innocence?

Did people who accused others of being witches dance around naked in the forest and pin someone down while they sucked their blood out? Clearly not. Anyone who doesn't believe the girls must be a witch sympathizer!

Play the #MeToo Game!

You've been sexually harassed or assaulted. You are humiliated and upset. It's time to roll the dice!

The goal of the game is to get justice. The path to justice can be treacherous, though. You'll need your instinct, guts, and some luck to get there.

To play: Each player chooses one of the "disgraced woman" game pieces and draws a card from the Perp Deck. This card goes face up in front of you while you are playing - this is your criminal. Now it's time to get to work - try to move your game piece to Justice! Each player rolls the die to determine more about their perp and what path they'll be taking to get to Justice.

If you roll a 1 or a 2: congratulations! Your Perp is a conservative. You will get full media and political support! Celebrities and news anchors will hang on your every word. Twitter and Facebook will support and help you with righteous outrage. You could actually make things up and no one will ever verify it or care. You will definitely get to Justice. Your goal is now to maximize the amount of payout and perks you'll get along the way. Can you parlay this into a political career or maybe have a law named after you?

If you roll a 3 or 4: bad luck, your Perp is a liberal. While you can reach Justice, it won't be easy and there will be difficult choices to make along the way. Will the media try to destroy you or your family? Will you be threatened or lose your job? Hopefully you'll keep your sanity and your dignity through the long ordeal – don't give up!

If you roll a 5 or 6: unfortunately, your Perp is either a Muslim grooming gang or a Kennedy. You will never achieve Justice and you automatically lose. Better luck next time.

Play again and again, there are endless possibilities!

Ages 18+
Up to 4 players

Hey look! This one incident will be enough to ignore hundreds of legitimate cases of sexual abuse, or sexual harassment, or rape.

Go team "guys who need to rape to get some"!

Five Teenage ‘Mean Girls' Falsely Accused A Boy Of Sexual Assault. They Weren't Punished.

Now the boy's parents, Michael J. and Alicia Flood, are suing the parents of the five girls and the Seneca Valley School District in Pennsylvania over their son's treatment. They say in their 26-page lawsuit their son "was forced to endure multiple court appearances, detention in a juvenile facility, detention at home, the loss of his liberty, and other damages until several of the girls reluctantly admitted that their accusations were false."

Their son is now being homeschooled due to the bullying he received, including signs taped to his back without his knowledge that said "predator," according to the lawsuit which was filed last week.

#9 -
The true rates of abuse are known. They've been published, repeatedly.
Your example is an exception to the rule. A corner case.
Is it horrible? Yes.
You know about it because it's so unusual.
That's why it gets covered in the news.
I get it. It's emotional. In your mind it outweighs all the "everyday" assaults that are quite real but hidden or not reported. The one you cited? It's dramatic. It also has absolutely nothing to do with all the other legitimate cases. It doesn't, or shouldn't, negate any of them.

I'll leave it to you to figure out why you even had a need, like others, to push a misleading contrarian narrative that further demeans and devalues victims of sexual assault and abuse. Perhaps you and that Navy Vet's mom (#7) can get together and work it out.

You really don't get it. Nobody's saying cases like this outweigh or negate cases of actual sexual assault and rape. It's very admirable to support a movement where actual victims of sexual assault can come forward and talk about their experiences. At the same time, if you refuse to acknowledge the nuance that there are bad people who will latch on this movement and put more energy into attacking those who bring attention to this fact than you do attacking those bad eggs, then you are undermining the movement.

"I'll leave it to you to figure out why you even had a need, like others, to push a misleading contrarian narrative that further demeans and devalues victims of sexual assault and abuse"

Case in point. There's nothing misleading about what I posted. You read that into it, and it makes it look like YOU want to sweep injustices under the rug. Acknowledging that there have been problems with movements going after sexual assault, terrorism, Communism, witchcraft, etc, doesn't mean you're trying to support or aid any of those things.

Romantic relationships in 2018 will now require a lawyer present to draw up a physical boundary contract. You bring the lawyer and I'll bring the notary public.

Lawyers? This sounds like the pathetic excuse of an undateable incel.

Ummmm not at all.

This sort of thing isn't OK.

Neither is it funny or stupid to point out the problem with it.
