I saw his picture, he’s a good looking Bloke.

Sounds to me like a few girls really fell for him, got overly involved with him and now want to take out his career.

Maybe this guy should have put the brakes on this right at the start, but they were all adults.



Great video, sir.

Don't know much about the entire story but have read some of the comments on here... I guess at the end of the day, it doesn't matter if students threw themselves at this man. If they engaged in reciprocal conversation with him, he is the individual who should have known where the boundaries are supposed to be.

Actually, they are all adults and all should know where the boundaries are. More so him because, strangely enough, I think that specific topic is where his professional expertise lies. But nevertheless, all will know the boundaries.

Whether he overstepped them or not is what needs to be decided. And then, whether it was some sort of assault or against professional and academic conduct rules is the next decision.

Unfortunately, the current standards, since Weinstein, are that an accusation is enough to ruin a person so that blurs the guilty/non-guilty decisions in addition to guilt according to the severity of an incident.

It will be interesting to see how we proceed societally in these matters. There is much at stake for all sides.

Agreed, however the maturity level of a 20 something can be much different than a 30 something.... At least one would hope. In addition age unfortunately does open one up to vulnerabilities of the world and intentions especially if they've never been exposed to an individual taking advantage of a situation.

There are airheads, idiots, and losers in every generation. Generalizing and assuming that one group of people is "worse" than another is good for no one.


This is true idiots come from all eras of human existence however at no point in human history has one generation been so incredibly clueless as to how the real world works. For example all these were created by Millennials:

"Safe Spaces", denouncing basic biology, 30+ made up gender pronouns, ANTIFA "Anti Fascist protesters promoting Communism, People self identifying with animals/objects/fictional characters, Openly denouncing freedom of speech to people that disagree, etc.

The world in which we all live in is not and will never be a Safe Space. Just ask the roughly 100 million people that died during WW1/2.
