The whole thing is disgusting and a somber reminder of the rank misogyny in this country. So many absurd ramblings out there from the incels, frat bros, and MRAs claiming all the allegations were a coordinated shakedown; that massage therapists should expect this kind of thing; walking right up to precipice of saying sexual coercion is some kind of male right... that the NFL seems more than happy to appease people like that, and that the Browns are willing to throw 250 million or whatever at Watson regardless of verdicts, should be a massive ethical indictment of the entire league.

I graduated from massage therapy school. Graduates are licensed by the state, and anyone saying that massage therapists should expect this kind of thing are way off base. We were taught from day one that jokes about "happy endings" or any sexual comments were beyond unacceptable, and if a client did such a thing, that was it. You should end the massage. I've never seen a massage waiver that didn't address this.

I've read through some of the more graphic articles about the DW allegations. I can see where his actions made the line so blurry. I know I would have been like, "Wait, what is he actually doing? Is this really happening?" As a therapist, you want to give the client the benefit of the doubt. I can understand why he visited so many different people, and I can see why the therapists did their best to finish out the session but make sure he never came back.

Don't know why I'm typing all this out. Guess I'm just super disgusted and so disappointed.

I'm really glad you shared that, actually, so thank you!

Happy birthday to the Green Bay Packers. 103 years ago the franchise started. Interestingly enough, the Packers have never been the NFL all time leader in wins but if they win they’re Week 1 visit to Vikings, by beating the Bears at home Week 2, they will overtake the Bears in total wins.
