Be Careful What You Wish For


by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker:

So #metoo is all the rage.

Yeah, there’s a problem with predatory people in the workplace and elsewhere.  It’s commonly thought it’s all men doing women, but that’s false.  A hell of a lot of women teachers, for example, seem to like to do boys.  While there are plenty of male soccer and gymnastics coaches that have stood accused of diddling a female athlete (and more than a few did it) there seems to be a new one every day in the news now when it comes to women teachers boffing their male students.

Now to be fair, that may have a lot to do with the demographics of teachers and their sexes.  It also may have plenty to do with the fact that most 15 year old boys wouldn’t exactly call a hot teacher wanting their body “rape” (whether the law sees it that way or not.)

But Diane, you ought to be careful here.

The #metoo movement made the cover of Time Magazine, a fitting prominence given that it is bringing about the greatest gender shift since women were granted the vote.

The scales of justice have been readjusted and now men accused by victims are considered guilty unless proven innocent.


**** you.

Since when is a mere allegation bereft of evidence enough?  I say never.

Not that you care, just like plenty of other women don’t.

That’s ok, because this sort of witch-hunt mentality has a price and it’s going to come fast and hard for you and others: Men will simply give women the finger.

See, there’s a point at which romance isn’t worth it.  While some men have that infamous “biological clock” thing going on it’s a hell of a lot more prevalent in women.  Men have two hands and while it’s not as good it sure beats being financially and personally destroyed by a false, even malicious, allegation.

Don’t tell me those false accusations don’t happen either — they most-certainly do.  Indeed, it appears that during the last Presidential campaign you had “fine lawyers” offering six figures to women who would accuse Trump of harassment or worse.

Did you really get assaulted or harassed if you will only spin a tale for money?  Or are you lying for profit?

Then there’s the Moore thing.  We know one accuser forged at least part of a yearbook “signature” because she admitted it — but only after close scrutiny appeared by myself and others who not only noted the odd color problems with the ink but the rather clear insanity involved in keeping around a memento from someone who you claim sexually assaulted you for decades when you had no idea it would have political value down the road.  Did that accuser forge the rest?  Was the real name in that book “Ray” and not “Roy”?  I don’t know and neither do you, but guess what — she’s vanished and so has the evidence, and I’ll bet it’s never seen again.  Yes, Moore lost the election, but did he lose it due to a false accusation or is he really a creep?

I don’t know and neither do you — but Roy Moore does.

Yeah, there’s a problem here, but it’s one you don’t care about.

You should, especially if you have daughters or are unmarried now.

There’s not a thing you can do about that ticking sound most women hear, but far fewer men do.  The finger goes up by those men, a few years go by, and, well, there’s going to be a problem when you discover that only the worthless jackass men are willing to take the risk because they have nothing to lose.

Then what?

Tell me what your daughter will think of your bull**** when all the eligible and desirable men refuse to have anything to do with her, leaving her to choose between a vibrator or some douchebag drunk, nasty jackass.

You should also care when it comes to employment and small business.  Think I’ll set one up and hire people?  Nope.  Never, as long as this crap continues.  Are you nuts?  It’s illegal to discriminate on the basis of sex in employment which means there’s exactly zero realistic means available to prevent a false allegation from being made.
