As far as I know he didn't violently rape someone like Harvey Weinstein or Brett Ratner. He should admit it and do the punishment for indecent exposure which I think is a couple of months in jail, a fine and register as a sex offender. Hell, he can use it as material for his standup.
What he shouldn't do, besides staying quiet, is to ignore the requests of his lawyer and write a long blog post like Robert Scoble did where he blamed his victims and basically claimed he was the victim.

Louis CK was kind of ahead of the curve on this one, actually, not tacked onto the end as an afterthought.  These allegations more or less put a bullet in the head of his career a while ago, he just had enough money to stagger on through an extra five years or so of unrelenting failure and projects sinking like a farking rock before his resources ran too low for him to be able to force his way into shiat anymore.

If only he'd merely had a 14-year-old little girl fondle his erect penis. Then he'd have Sean Hannity defend him, and have a successful career as a Republican senator.

But CK is a liberal, so regular standards of morality apply. Stick a fork in him.

It's hard to find details about exactly what he did wrong.   I'm beginning to wonder if the dragnet has snagged a perv, but not a criminal.

In one instance, if I understood correctly, CK invited two amateur female comedians back to his hotel room for a night cap after the show & all the bars in town were already closed.   The women state they were asked if it would be alright for him to take his penis out.  They did NOT say no, and it's implied they said OK, but didn't take his request seriously.   He then proceeded to strip naked (in his own hotel room!) and began to masturbate while sitting on his bed.  The women felt that was inappropriate.  They were not his employees, they were not really co-workers, and he didn't promise them fame or fortune nor to ruin them if they didn't comply...  and he didn't rape them.  Is it really indecent exposure if you accepted his invitation to his room for drinks and agreed he could expose himself to you?   Did he have to explicitly state what he intended to do to his own penis once exposed to make this OK?

Another instance, a woman states CK asked her if he could masturbate to her.   She said no.   He got red-faced embarrassed and stated that he "had issues."  Oh, the horror of an adult asking another adult if they'd like to have a consensual sexual encounter.   What a monster.   Lock him up and throw away the key... and every guy in every bar ever.  (That's 3 of the 5 women so far... the other 2 must have accused him of worse for this to make sense.)

Yes, he also puts a lot of himself into his work... and his work has some sick, twisted, dark humor, but that doesn't equate to him necessarily acting out on the things he jokes about.

I must be missing something horrible.   If you guys find it, post it... because so far, it's 5 women who state 20 years ago CK did or said something sexual that they found inappropriate -- not illegal, just inappropriate by their standards.  There's no allegations of drugging, molesting, or raping or of hush money for lawsuits.  The implication is that since CK likes to masturbate in front of women and often jokes about that or plays a character that enjoys that, that everything in his comedy is somehow now a reflection of who he really is and what he represents, so therefore he must be supportive of all the immoral or illegal acts he talks about or his characters in his movies portray.

I already see that some women have come out of the woodwork to complain about Howard Stern - one woman was shocked he MADE her stand on a scale.   Oh, it's every woman's worst nightmare.   Somehow I doubt he physically assaulted her to put her on the scale or blackmailed her into it.   If you walk into Stern's show, you should know what sort of treatment to expect.   Stern's lucky that he has no sexual allegations (yet) likely because he professed for many years how devoted he was to his wife and would never be with the women who came on his show.

There is a political component to what is going on with all these allegations of sexual impropriety, and it certainly overlaps with the different standards being applied, depending on the political proclivities of the accused.

But you already knew that. Nice, but unsuccessful, attempt at deflection.

Contrasting this story that came out today with another thing that happened today hardly counts as hawing political conspiracy theories. It is a fact that sexual harassment accusations today will end a career in hollywood but not in politics because the people in hollywood don't have half the country's support.

Louis CK isn't qualified to be a comic anymore, but he is qualified to be a President or Senator. "Do you know how naive you sound? Presidents and Senators don't commit sex crimes!" Who's being naive Kay?
 
2017-11-10 07:01:53 AM  
Its all about the implication. He has enough power over the scene they want to break in that even if he doesnt threaten them there is the implication that there will be repercussions if they dont abide for his stuff. He's playing hard and fast with consent by leveraging his own fame.

If you did one ounce of looking it up, you'd see that the allegations against Moore are extremely well researched and credible... it isn't just one random person with a flimsy story.

So then even if a person explicitly asks for consent no adult below him in the industry is capable of giving it?

I don't know exactly where we should draw the line wrt the power dynamic. It seems Louis' actions aren't even in the ballpark of Weinstein's.

Meanwhile, if we ignore magnitude of power differential, I'm just as bad as either of them if I hit on a woman with the implication that I'll take her on my boat and supply the beer. She probably can't say no, because beer and boating is so awesome.

Absurd? Yes. How about we kick that up to a yacht cruise to a private island?

People often do things for those they sleep with. So long as they don't punish those who decline, I'm not convinced the former are incapable of consent.

Been thinking of this clip a lot this past month, with all the victim blaming I've seen--Asia Argento chased out of Italy, Rose McGowan with that bullshiat drug charge, Mossad being hired to harass these women, trying to get therapist records. A tiny violin is playing for Louis CK now.

Hell look at the Moore accuser--pulling out all her dirty laundry (once got a ticket for driving a boat with one light out in 2010!) to ward off the gotchas! in advance. The oh noes it's a witch hunt! Too many men accused in such a short amount of time! (Ignoring the fact that there's going to be a lot of villains in a world where practically every woman and not an insignificant number of men have a #metoo story).

There's some hope I guess. Some men have been exposed and outed. More people are aware of how pervasive this is. Was actually surprised today reading that swimmer's NYT moving article today about her abusing pervert of a coach--and how the vast bulk of comments there were actually positive.

But there's been a number of men recently outed as faux feminists--besides Louis CK, the editor dbag (https://www.thecut.com/2017/10/vice-​re​porter-slammed-for-sexist-breitbart-em​ails.html ), this writer (https://jezebel.com/former-male-femi​ni​st-columnist-faces-multiple-allegatio-​1819266286 ) , among others. Their hypocrisy is no different than Roy Moore with all his religious sanctimony preying on young teens.

Also, the worst live show I've ever seen was Louis CK. He looked hung over, biatched about his diarrhea, told a pretty horrible joke about his young daughter, and let a front row of drunken bros heckle and talk over him almost the whole show. I actually liked him up till that experience and yeah, the rumors have been in the news now for almost a decade, so not surprising.
