Teen Disappointed Brad Wall Used Sex Assault Story As 'Political Whipping Point'

  Teen Disappointed Brad Wall Used Sex Assault Story As 'Political Whipping Point' Teen Disappointed Brad Wall Used Sex Assault Story As 'Political Whipping Point'Rylee Schuhmacher was finishing class when a friend told her that Premier Brad Wall was talking about her allegations of sexual assault in the province's legislature.

An adult may be able to help figure out why this person keeps on calling you racist, if apologies are in order, and how to smooth it out so you can get along with each other. This version of How to Respond when Someone Calls You a "Racist" was reviewed by Tasha Rube, LMSW on July 16, 2017.

Figuring out how to respond when you 've been ghosted can be difficult. Whether you decide to call or text, the trick here is to not let your emotions get the best of you — you 'll have plenty of time to lament to your friends — because the goal should now be getting closure.

Deny, deny, deny!

Take a page out of actor Ed Westwick’s notebook and claim you’ve done nothing wrong. Heck, while you’re at it, say you’ve never even met these people claiming you assaulted them. And even if you have crossed paths, you don’t remember them. This is important because a) it implies there’s no way in hell you could have assaulted them because hello, you don’t know them and b) it makes it seem like accusers are trying to get their 15 minutes of fame by going after a very important and famous person who is too important and famous to assault them.

Notable fans of this tactic include George Takei, Kevin Spacey and James Toback.

The events he describes back in the 1980s simply did not occur, and I do not know why he has claimed them now. I have wracked my brain to ask if I remember Mr. Brunton, and I cannot say I do. /2

Jessica Chastain calls attention to Bryan Singer’s sexual assault accusations

  Jessica Chastain calls attention to Bryan Singer’s sexual assault accusations Molly’s Game actress Jessica Chastain is known for being outspoken in Hollywood. Not only has she lent her voice to the fight for women’s equal pay in the industry, but she also recently supported victims of sexual abuse at the hands of some of Hollywood’s biggest names. In an interview with Screen Rant, Chastain spoke about what she feels needs to be done about the issue of abuse in Hollywood: “My current thoughts and feelings are I want to do whatever I can to support victims and to know that I believe them and that there’s a community of artist that are committed to creating safe work environments. And I think that the industry has not been running the way it should be running.” She continued, “I think it goes beyond gender. It goes to all facets of the industry. We need to be more inclusive…So, the thing I am excited about is I do believe that there’s a generation of [artists] who are done with the old ways of Hollywood… and is more interested in creating an industry that is safe and inclusive.” In support of victims, Chastain is calling out those with a reputation for being abusers, such as X-Men franchise director Bryan Singer. Chastain drew attention to Singer’s sordid past of sexual assault allegations via a tweet from her Twitter account of an article written from the website Daily Wire about the accusations against Singer.

… But if you have to admit wrongdoing, claim it was consensual

If you can’t flat-out deny allegations because there are just too many, acknowledge that yes, you’re a human who may have misread signals, cheated on your wife or taken advantage of a situation (you’re likely a powerful man, after all)—but you’re no villain. When comedian Louis C.K. was publicly accused of sexual misconduct by five women in the New York Times after years of rumours, he admitted he did show women his dick and masturbated in front of them—but he asked them first.

“But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your dick isn’t a question. It’s a predicament for them,” Louis C.K. said in his statement. “The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly.”

Louis C.K.’s response makes it clear that he thought women wanted to see his dick; in fact, they were so in awe of his comedic genius that they didn’t even mind his recurring workplace harassment. His dick is like the Mona Lisa; you’ll want to look, even if you can’t touch. It can be hard for men to comprehend how powerful their penises can be, but thanks to some deep reflection, Louis C.K. gets it now.

Corey Feldman's claims about Hollywood pedophiles being investigated by LAPD

  Corey Feldman's claims about Hollywood pedophiles being investigated by LAPD LAPD is investigating claims made by Corey Feldman.Corey Feldman has spoken with the Los Angeles Police Department, and police are investigating claims the former child star has made about being abused when he was younger by men in Hollywood.

By staying out of bad situations, you can feel more confident when you ’re out and about. You can also keep yourself and your child safe online by knowing how to identify predators . If you come into contact with a predator , stay safe, stay calm, and get help .

Eliza Byard, GLSEN’ s executive director, said she was grateful to hear them speak out : “In our culture … there is an extra cone of shame and silence around boys and men who experience sexual harassment that can prevent them from getting help .” Tyler Grasham, a Hollywood agent

Mention you know “women and girls”

In responding to allegations that you’ve done something terrible to a “female,” it’s important to mention that you respect and value “females” because you know some. How can someone who has some women in their life treat others so badly??? It’s impossible to fathom, really.

When Matt Damon responded to the explosive Harvey Weinstein sexual assault news, he made it clear that he did not help cover up his pal’s bad behaviour. “As the father of four daughters, this is the kind of sexual predation that keeps me up at night,” he said.

If, like Damon, you’re a father of daughters, reminding people about your progeny is VERY important. Not only does it show you’re a family man, it also implies that even if you’re BFFs with pervos, you do. not. stand. for this type of rampant behaviour. (If you have a mother, mention that, too.)

Use sex addiction as an explanation for your behaviour

Elizabeth Perkins names James Woods at #MeToo march

  Elizabeth Perkins names James Woods at #MeToo march Elizabeth Perkins called out James Woods on Sunday when she joined hundreds of people at the #MeToo march in Hollywood to protest sexual harassment. The “Weeds” actress held up a white sign with, “James Woods #MeToo,” written on it as she stood among protesters, including Harvey Weinstein accuser Lauren Sivan. Men, women, and children walked down Hollywood Boulevard for the Take Back the Workplace March and the #MeToo Survivors March near the entrance to the Dolby Theater where the Academy Awards take place.

Still you ’re likely to get a legitimate question or two that you never considered and that leaves you wondering, “Where did that question come from — out of left field. When you ’re asked a question you don’t have an answer to, follow these guidelines

Blame your *alleged* bad behaviour on a very serious medical condition: sex addiction. Even if you don’t really know what sex addiction is, use it as a blanket term for anything from unwanted touching, masturbating in public, rape, humiliation and lewd comments made towards others.

After you’ve made it clear that a legit problem is making you behave this way, say you’ve spent “a lot of time soul searching” and have come to the realization that you’ve “hurt the people you love most.” This is also a great time to reiterate that you’re a father, husband or son, and that you know women.

Notable fans of this tactic include Harvey Weinstein, Brand New’s Jesse Lacey and Anthony Weiner.

Step away from your professional ventures, but still profit off them

When the spark has turned into a fire, it’s time to back away. While you’re caught up in sexual assault allegations, it’s a good idea to remove yourself from your professional endeavours for a period of time. Like Brett Ratner, who distanced himself from Warner Bros. projects after several women said he sexually harassed them, taking time to do you is the best move for your temporarily damaged career.

“We are confident that [Ratner’s] name will be cleared once the current media frenzy dies down and people can objectively evaluate the nature of these claims,” attorney Martin Singer said in a statement. Warner Bros. said they are “reviewing” the situation, which likely means neither party hasn’t financially cut ties just yet (lawyers ain’t cheap!).

Bottom line? Never take full responsibility and NEVER call yourself a predator or rapist. Also, try to keep your dick in your pants until things blow over—or at least until the next guy gets dragged through the mud.
