Wow !!! Did Morgan really do that ? I hadn't heard that before

Then why does everyone here want to hang Morgan Freeman ? Because he was flirting with women ?
Hell, I did much worse than that in High School.

Idk on Freeman, other than the ick factor of an old man hitting on someone granddaughter age. But there really no way to know the context of what Freeman did, whether he crossed the line or worse who knows. Could just be a girl looking to cash in

I was replying to the the Cosby didn't shove the pills down there throats comment. Alarming since as I understand it he was drugging them without their knowledge or consent and raping them while they were passed out, sick stuff, if you are ok with that I don't even know what to say

Where do those harms rank in the whole scheme of things?

Certainly, some of these women in the news have been raped, and crimes have been committed and should be prosecuted. Others...not so much.
They are all getting lumped together with the same gravitas.

I'm not sure that's a good thing.
You're right, of course there are varying degrees of severity and harassment is different than rape. Describing the "harm" of sexual harassment in the workplace is something that's been done quite a bit, both defined and quantified, by our legal system. I'm not sure how to rank them in the "whole scheme of things", but I don't think that matters. I don't think that comparing one offense to another means either should be ignored, but agree with you that there should obviously be varying degrees of severity for consequence.

I don't necessarily agree that they're lumped together with the same gravitas when you compare Cosby's conviction and Weinstein's criminal trial to what Morgan Freeman is experiencing. Maybe I'm wrong, but I haven't seen him fired or asked to resign from any of his companies yet, and he certainly hasn't been charged with anything criminal.

Rape is what Cosby did and what Weinstein apparently did and others like Kevin Spacey preyed on under age boys, they should be hung, guys like Freeman and Luis CK flirted or tried to get some action but were rejected and went their way. Should they be painted by the same brush?

We are as a society obsessed with pop culture sports stars realty tv stars actors etc. Not sure using them as examples says anything at all about society in general. I really cannot relate to them and will always be leary of their motives and those of their accusers. And you know, if you hob knob around them znd are an adult well maybe you need beware and to rethink your position. OTOH We do have a teavher in our school who turns everything into a case of sexual discrimination...including that Parkland shooting. So I do avoid that one like the plague. It in general these pop issues like take a knee and most of this celebrity stuff is just cheap entertainment for the masses.

One of Morgan Freeman's biggest accusers is a CNN reporter who said she was harassed by him during an interview. She is the one who did the investigation and found the 16 accusers.

Here is a clip of the interview where Chloe Melas was "Harassed". If this is harassment we are all in trouble.

Flirting is one thing - and that's fine if it's done respectfully/tactfully. Trying to pull up a
woman's skirt on multiple occasions and asking if they are wearing panties doesn't qualify.

Assuming you are married or have a mother or sister and some guy persistently "flirted"
with them by trying to pulling up their dress to see if they are wearing - you would be cool with that?

Back in the 70's and early 80's I remember seeing lots of Ad's like this one in Comic books, Rolling Stone....

First of, he didn't try to pull up anyone's dress, but apparently he did tease as if he was going to try to. And no, that really wouldn't be very cool, but it's not anywhere near being at the level of being a Bill Cosby, etc...
Fortunately being an old coot clowning around in poor taste is not yet a crime, but I guess some folks think it should be.

Just for argument's sake:
How exactly could a person court or show interest in another person and still fit into the "mother/wife/daughter" scenario?
And just to clarify:
Are you saying that it is only okay to interact with a woman(that you are interested in) the same way you would interact with your "mother/daughter?"

Does this mean that it is up to the female to make the move in order to get out of the "mother/daughter" zone?
In that case she would need to interact in a way that she would not act toward her father or son?

I have been married long enough that I have no idea how courtship works these days, so I really am curious how it is supposed to work. Does it require an app?

I initially was thinking some young lady was jumping in on a frivolous celebrity lawsuit, but his comments in the interview were far from miscommunicated compliments. I will say it's total BS for these women waiting 4, 8, 10, or 12 years to pursue. If it was an issue it should have been handled then.
