This thread has sexualy assaulted the concept of discourse.

What side does that count toward?

I'd just like to say that this is the single stupidest thread I have ever seen. And that includes a five year mobius trainwreck about immortality.

I started several different responses to this thread and logger's claimed glee at having started it. I deleted each one before posting because I realized there really isn't anything worth saying about such an inanity.

Stone gets tagged across the board, depending on who's doing the labeling.
(and what crap he's spewed most recently)

I haven't checked, because I recognize less than half the names, but how accurate is logger being considering his bias and the purpose of the thread?

I don't recognize many of them too, but logger has added conservatives and moderates him/herself (Edit: though you might disagree with his/her "leftist", "moderate", and "righty" labels)

I was going to say that this thread is as bad as the "Forgive Trump Voters?" thread but at least in this one both sides have a chance of winning I've laughed a few times...Especially G. Bush. Just seeing the recent photos of Bush and imagining him pinching an ass - aw come on that's funny!

I wouldn't care if Bush Sr. grabbed my butt, It'd be an honor! He was a President! Everyone should be honored. Junior, not so much.

I have no name to add to the list.

I'll try and predict one instead. Within the next two weeks before this news trend ends.

Prediction: Mike Pence - righty. Unlikely by now, but he creeps the hell out of me.

For the left - Dianne Feinstein, just for fun and the gross-out factor.

Who says that sexual attention to other humans is categorically wrong? It is a biological instinct.

A simple tally is rather lame, without also rating the severity of the behavior and the significance of the individual. Otherwise you blur low-level sexual harassment with violent rape. And you blur random bozos with elected officials who are in a position of power, e.g. President Donald "nobody respects women more than I do" Trump.
