In the poorly photoshopped picture below how do you think the #metoo movement would have reacted with this scenario?

Would everyone just have laughed it off? Or would Jerry be labelled a mysogynist and everyone would have felt bad for his dedicated and beautiful wife?


Do you not watch late night talk shows ? Listen to comics ? You'll see a whole lot worse, guaranteed.

There is a huge...huge difference between harmless joking - in this case - between two friends...and sexual harassment and assault.

I'm not quite sure if people are deliberately trying to cause a fuss at this point or not.

If you want to make some sort of comparison you'd have to find 2 people who are friends with one wishing the other a happy birthday. Inserting Jerry Seinfeld's face into the picture - who as far as i know isn't a friend of Katy's - and purposely leaving out the birthday message is just stupid and feels like a deliberate attempt to move goalposts.

Is Katy Pary herself actually outraged about the birthday greeting and feels she's been sexually harassed? I've heard nothing at all from her but a lot of people want to try to tell her how to feel about a birthday greeting from a friend.

I beg your pardon. Shame on us? You don't even know Donald Trump personally ?doubt it. and all you know about him is what you've read in the paper so before you go wave around your stick of righteousness give yourself a little tap on the head first
the smartest person in the room usually isn't the one talking the most but rather talking the least ;)

Read in a paper? No, people have seen videos of him bragging about sexual assault on women. Objectification. First hand reports and coroborated stories from women who have been violated by him. Legal statements from his ex wife who was raped by him.

People can either stand up against this sort of actions, or they can make excuses and try to justify it and ignore it. I guess you fall into that second camp.

They don’t, because late night talk shows make fun of Donald Trump. You can tell how offended they get about it by the memes they post “The Hate Show with Stephen Colbert”,

Just so you know overall 52% of american women voted for Trump, 61% of Caucasian women without a University degree also voted for Trump. Look I've heard all the tapes of him doing his "locker talk" and i agree that the US president should be held to a higher level of standards than regular citizens just like the RCMP and our own politicians. HOWEVER! Trump won the election because Hilary was the worst candidate ever, not because the american people thought he would be a great fit. They chose the lessor of two evils JUST LIKE WE DID HERE WITH TRUDEAU.

Trump is not a racist, bigot, homophobic etc, hes just a huge idiot that says whatever he feels like and throws threats around like a snowball fight (just like the average american) We are stuck being his north neighbor and there is no amount of "Protesting" that is going to change this. Worry about our own countries political issues and how we need to vote Trudeau out of power before he totally ruins Canada. This is coming from someone whom voted for Trudeau, I've learned my lesson and hopefully you have as well.
