    Never heard the stereotype about band kids?

    TBF, those men were also chided as kids to shut up and not discuss it. And coming forward 30 years later, those men are often called gay or weak. Just look at how Terry Crews was ridiculed by people after he was sexually assaulted.

    Responses like this are why the idea of "productive dialogue" with those on the far right is impossible. We don't have the same basic human values, and you can't discuss empathy, humanity or decency with them.

    I disagree. The police swear an oath to do a job, and are paid by the public to do that job. They have more responsibility to solve this issue. Private citizens should not be held to the same standard. Also, the roots of mistrust with police from the black community stems from Jim Crow. That is all on the police.

    The people are afraid of the police. The police are bringing the fear.

    That much is clear. He has a massive inferiority complex and is beyond insecure.

    Ted Cruz is urging people to not jump to conclusions regarding Botham Jean's shooting. Hey, maybe there is a perfectly rational explanation for him being shot to death in his own apartment in the middle of the night.

    Why are you trying so hard to evade the point? Again - do you now understand that people are not arguing for kids to stay quiet? That was never anyone's position. Are you willing to acknowledge that you were making a strawman argument?

    So, Chinese shirts are okay. Only Chinese suits are bad. Gotcha.

    You didn't address the point. You said: Do you now understand that people are not arguing for kids to stay quiet? That was never anyone's position. Are you willing to acknowledge that you were making a strawman argument?

    Guys, I think we did it. I think we got Stan to admit that Trump is doing something wrong.

    Yep, one of the things you have to weigh as a victim. Do I want to tell someone what happened, if they may not even believe me?

    But he is a terrible dresser, right?

    How do you explain your constant praise of Trump's success with how poorly he dresses?

    Allow me to explain this to you in simple terms. 1) Yes, children/teens/adults should be encouraged to report any sexual misconduct/harassment/assault to the proper adult figures and/or authorities. We all agree. 2) It is VERY common for victims of sexual assault to not report the assault right away, because it is a traumatic event that can impact the person psychologically. Reporting abuse can also be a very traumatic experience that requires the person to re-live the trauma, and people often weigh the consequences of reporting which often include shame/denial/tons of other issues. Not reporting a case immediately does NOT mean it never happened.
