Well hell, you're spending money in bars and restaurants AND riding a bike....fuck me let's roll out the red carpet! Of course the missing piece in your little tizzy fit story is what you said or did leading up to that person calling you a piece of shit. Wake up asshole, it takes more than going to Timbers games to earn your stripes. Here's a clue: Try doing something more than just taking and start participating.

-Blah-

Just to add on to kalikill7's spot on response to your dribble. I'm sorry to hear that you too are a victim of sexual abuse. I would never wish that upon anyone, not even goats. Please leave the goats alone and feel free to feltch anyone you want to as long as it's consensual and they are of age.

However, I have to admit that part of me wants to not believe that you're a victim in the same way that you're refusing to believe the testimony in this article. Are you blaming yourself for your victimization the same way you're blaming them?

Furthermore, I think you miss the entire point of this article and fail to recognize it's intention:

- At no point were names named, so no one is being accused outright.

- At no point is there ever mention of legal accusations being made or charges being filed.

- No one ever accused you of being a rapist, of course I speculated whether or not you are on the "blacklist" given your outlandish responses, but as the article stated the list includes other people that are generally just mean and/or creeps.

- Lastly, the entire point of the article was to raise awareness that this sort of behavior exists in other social groups other than just on college campuses, the military, or sports culture that we typically hear about.

It's beyond me how someone who claims to be a victim themselves can express the views you hold. I hope that you can find a way to gain a better perspective in the future.

It's hard to argue with BlahBlahBlah's logic and I don't mean that in the agreeable sense. This piece has obviously touched a nerve with them and you can't help wonder if they too are on the "blacklist" mentioned. It sure seems like this goat felcher is well overdue for some paddling though. Please let us in on your secret (handshake) Blah...

As hard as it is to read stories like these, I hope that by talking about it helps them work towards healing. One unexpected realization I came to while reading this is just how much this sounds like fraternity culture. The irony of course is that these same people would be deeply offended at the comparison, however both scenes give these men the inflated sense of self worth and entitlement that leads them to commit such acts.

The part about the blacklist was interesting too, as much as I dislike the name, I guess something has to be done when you see how little the police will do in these situations. I don't particularly care for the term "blacklist" and given my previously mentioned realization I'd like propose a new name for it. I hereby submit the idea of establishing a new fraternal order of Mu Epsilon Tau Lambda (METL) in which new members are involuntarily submitted. Finally, I'd like to recommend BlahBlahBlah1111 to become it's first member based on their post above.

Right! Because who gives a damn about her economics, her war-n-policy, or the environment. Vote with your vagina if that's your focus, but you may just find yourself lost in that Bush.

Jebus, grow some damn nuance please and try to not sound so much like a lawyer. Homer fancies himself as the overlord of the Pearl. As a major developer he has plenty of "ownership" in this game.

Nice dodge on the superfund issue too. He may not have any personal liability, but whomever develops that area will definitely have to overcome that obstacle. This whole thing wreaks of the same bait and switch he pulled with the south waterfront park.

Isn't Terminal 1 and that area part of the superfund clean-up? Something tells me this has more to do with getting the tax payers to foot the required clean-up costs than it does with helping the homeless. Homer could give a squirt of piss about the homeless, in the very least he just wants to sweep them away from his ivory towers.
