Richard Branson accused of sexual harassment:


Richard Branson accused of sexual harassment:

[sign in to see URL]

[Seems these billionaires like Trump and Branson feel they are some sort of Nietzschian "supermen" who are above the rules and ethics of the common man. Great wealth means freedom from the rules of others. Ultimately they are rewarded rather than punished. Even becoming President of the United States.]

Re: Richard Branson accused of sexual harassment:


I am not surprised Richard Branson can't remember his motor-boating.

Obviously that type of behavior is unacceptable.

I have a neighbor who got a settlement for something that happened at a private party in Las Vegas she was on staff when one of the richest men in the world showed up drunk and was grossly inappropriate with her. She was horrified and caused a scene. Anyway before the evening was out his lawyer handed her a check and a non-disclosure agreement.

This wasn't a shake down, it was his staff looking out for his best interest.

She took it. However, if she would of done nothing like this woman. I'm sure his staff would of done nothing.

My point, and i do have one.

when something like this happens the time to react is then, not years later.

I know that every time a woman comes out with a story I'm not going automatically go to sex pervert, that is different than men being drunk jerks and doing something inappropriate in front of people at a party. Years later, how much does this really matter in the scheme of say Weinstein or Spacey, it doesn't, yet.....

Re: Richard Branson accused of sexual harassment:


It's all relative, what is happening now, the actions of our president, as a society we need to learn how to treat each other with respect.


 also, it seems as a society we have forgotten how to love.
