Ouch.

I just rolled my eyes so hard, they popped out of my head and fell on the floor.

While I know you're being sarcastic, it was ultimately this logic as to why I abandoned postmodernism and cultural relativism. This kind of behavior, ultimately, is wrong both on a religious moral level, but, more importantly, also on a philosophical secular humanist level. Such condemnation is not arbitrary and without basis.

The Left has been wrong not to defend its values more vehemently.

Maybe this man was raised in a culture that celebrates public masturbation.
Maybe he has a yet undiagnosed syndrome or disorder freeing him of responsibility for his actions.
Maybe this is "protected free speech" about the sexual repression of the Catholic Church.
Maybe he is a celebrated semen artist that crafts on tray tables rather than canvas.

Anyway, how do we really know this happened? That it was really him? How can you ever be 100% sure? Best to let him go rather than risk jailing an innocent man I say.

Such judgmentalism and lack of tolerance in FYM.
Frankly I'm disappointed.
I nominate this for worst post of the thread. And that's saying something.

And I know you're being sarcastic.

One wonders what would possess an individual to do something like this.

Look no further than the self-gratification postings in this thread.

Well, it's hilarious when women are assaulted.

Isn't it?

And equally as hilarious when men are assaulted.

I'd like to say if it were me that I'd have kicked the guy square in the balls with one of my heeled boots, but I can only imagine the shock and trauma one would go through in the moment.

I don't recall making any jokes in any recent threads about men being sexually assaulted.

Lawsuit dismissed.

Spot on.

Martha's modus operandi on here is to twist people's words to make it look like they're saying something they aren't.

You're not the only one to be on the receiving end of her particular brand of sexism - unfortunately, it's a fairly regular occurence for her to throw sexist abuse at male posters, to misattribute their motives, and to falsely accuse them of sexism - and, in this particular thread - even worse - for her to falsely accuse other posters of not caring about sexual assault.

I think that this is, to use an expression you used in relation to one of my posts recently (), real BS.

Madelyiris's intention was clearly to show an example, by way of encouraging men to be more emphathetic in this situation.

Now WTF has that got to do with homophobia?

Actually, I suspect INDY500's intention was to satirise the excessively non-judgemental attitudes that we sometimes see on the left.

For example, around about the time a notorious (African-American) murderer and gang leader was about to be executed (I can't recall the name of this person, off the top of my head), I saw posts saying that the guy should be excused because, after all, he had a difficult background!
