Anyone claiming harassment should post bail
If they’d manage to produce a single shred of evidence that something illegal — not just ‘unpleasant to think about down the line’ — was done to them, they’d get their money back.
I’m kidding of course.
The real solution is to just stop this madness that has become the latest foot-gun in a long line of competitions in stupid in the U.S. It’s almost as if you’re looking for a problem to Trump’s solution. He certainly g̶r̶a̶b̶b̶e̶d̶ ̶t̶h̶i̶s̶ ̶s̶i̶t̶ nipped this situation in the bud.
Why would you want to live in a society where every game of Twister might make for an entry in some dossier. You’re giving unscrupulous people power of judge, jury and executioner. There’s this old joke about the Soviet Union that the secret police could just sit on their asses all day because people would tell on each-other and they only needed to wait for the phone to ring.
You’re losing millions (billions?) of dollars on cancellations of well-off TV series and comedy acts because something may have happened in 1984 or because people do what people do. Humans use money and power to get sex. Always was, is, will be.
Wonder why Darryl in your hometown of Butt Fuck MS gets away with worse every day and Louis has to apologize for using his ‘they admired me power irresponsibly’? Because bad people use this craze as a leg up. Unless you’re working for a basketball team getting a pat on the rear at work is not normal and you should do something. Get your boss fired, switch jobs, grow thicker skin. But do it right away or risk being (rightly) accused of opportunism.
I know you’re imagining all the harassees to be depressed/oppressed 23-year-old girls crying in their studio apartments. Much more likely it’s some suit who stands to gain.
Don’t get played.
