Want to have a conversation that includes more than "go team"? Do it elsewhere.

If someone tried to talk to me about anything other than legitimate game business when I'm trying to coach, I would ignore them and walk away. I'm there to help the kids learn sportsball, make sure nobody gets hurt, and to correct them if they do something dangerous/stupid/unsportsmanlike.

FTA:

Netflix confirmed in a statement thatAndy Yeatman, its director of global kids content, made those "careless" and "uninformed" comments, but noted that he was not initially aware that the woman he was speaking to had accused Masterson of rape.
We'll I'll be.  They're saying that it wasn't his intention to directly call her a liar to her face.  Who'd have thunk?

It's a shame that Masterson turned out to be such a scumbag.  He was one of the main reasons I watch/watched that show.

I love that Netflix's response is basically to blame the lady for not starting the conversation by saying she was a rape victim. It's really all her fault. She needs to learn to lead all conversations with that one so other people don't intentionally act like complete dickheads.

FTA:  "Three of the women who have accused Masterson were members of the Church of Scientology at the time they say they were raped. Church doctrine says that contacting law enforcement to report another Scientologist is a high crime and will lead to being declared a suppressive person ― meaning that person will be shunned from the church, and their friends and family members who are church members must stop speaking to them."

Sure - you can do that but I'm on her side here. If someone assaults me and I report it and nothing happens and then I see their employer, well, anywhere at all, I'm well withing my rights to bring that subject up. I won't be expecting them to drop what they are doing and run off to the police but I will reserve my right to be a pain in the ass to that organization as often and as harshly as I like until the matter is resolved.

I'd like to know what people in these kinds of situations should do if there appears to be no time or place available to discuss these kinds of issues. This appears to be one of those situations as Netflix has steadfastly refused to do anything about Danny Masterson's continued employment with the company; the article itself noted that Netflix has known about these allegations since March and that the victim was frustrated by Netflix's silence over the matter.

See how that works?

Just a general observation: Why would the women specifically target Danny and not someone with even deeper pockets and higher status in the Hollywood good chain? Do they get together and collab, "Now, Steph, you're in charge of saying he fondled you at a SAG event, and Jenn, you say it was during 70s Show....and Anna...you say he pinched your asscheeks at Chateau Marmont..."

Execs want you to think there's this cadre of unsuccessful, not attractive enough, pathetic women who plot these things. I'll go out on a limb and say he prob did these things

That's one of the thoughts that's crossed my mind during all these accusations. In the public eye, every single accused is already guilty, regardless of a court trial.

The guy saying this is an asshat.

That said, unless the guy accused has broken his contract with Netflix in some way, Netflix is just ass covering not taking any action until he is convicted or otherwise breaks his contract.

Uncle Pooky: I can't imagine what it would take for my default position to be "automatically side with the accused rapist."


Being a member of the Church of Scientology (if the accused rapist is also one)?

Three of the women who have accused Masterson were members of the Church of Scientology at the time they say they were raped. Church doctrine says that contacting law enforcement to report another Scientologist is a high crime and will lead to being declared a suppressive person ― meaning that person will be shunned from the church, and their friends and family members who are church members must stop speaking to them.

Despite that edict, Victim B filed a police report against Masterson in 2004. But the case was quickly thwarted when dozens of Scientologists filed affidavits with the LAPD claiming that Victim B wasn't telling the truth.

The LAPD officially reopened the case against Masterson in January, and referred it to the district attorney in April. Sources in the police department and district attorney's office have described the evidence against Masterson as "compelling" and "overwhelming."

What is the time and place for confronting rape apologists for apologizing for rape? If you don't want to be accosting for being a rape apologist, don't apologize for rape.

And in this case you shouldn't be a rape apologist apologist.

Nobody in the right mind should ever discuss potential disputes involving their employer. Ever.

Beyond that, if she saw him at a wedding, should she interrupt the proceedings?  What about if an EMT was attempting to stablize him for transport to a hospital.

There is literally no point to the conversation.  He was a moron for saying anything, especially if he has no decision making authority.

Can you imagine how awful it would be to get the guts to file a police report after not being believed by your community, and then have your community go so far as to malign your character on top of that? Awful wouldn't even begin to describe it.
