Someone said :

There was a complaint made and there is a Garda investigation.

So I see. The complaint was only made the other day after the whole debacle began, not at the time of my earlier post.
Bad week for them- a member of staff died on site too this week.

A few weeks back when the whole Weinstein saga exploded it was being discussed on Matt Coopers show.. A male DJ made a very valid point.. He said he had DJayed at many hen nights where he was consistently mauled & groped & sure it was just the women having a bit of crack.. Reverse the role where it's a female DJ being mauled at a stag do & it's sexual assault.. #blurry lines

I don't think anybody said that assault on males was any different to assault on females?
If you said there was a male dj who was assaulted by a group of males you would have no difficulty considering that an assault situation because you can imagine the threat.
The reason you and Matt Cooper have a difficulty imagining a group of women assaulting a male probably is less to do with imagining a threat and more to do with being make chauvinist pigs ...

Popular US radio personality Garrison Keillor is the latest head to roll. His version of events seems pretty tame though. There's probably more to it.

He told a local newspaper he had been accused of inappropriate touching. "I put my hand on a woman’s bare back. I meant to pat her back after she told me about her unhappiness and her shirt was open and my hand went up it about six inches. She recoiled. I apologized. I sent her an email of apology later and she replied that she had forgiven me and not to think about it. We were friends. We continued to be friendly right up until her lawyer called."

My question is... why now, why not before?

Ok, Weinstein was targeted as his power is on the wane, but why now is the whole barrel of shit rolling?

It's good we finally found a use for the internet outside of looking up porn & insulting each other..

It's trying to conflate trading sex for roles by actors and actresses with men in power being abusive .

In the 60s they had a different attitude doesn't change the definition of abuse though.
