    Jesus wept it's fine to grab women's puzzies so long as you don’t rape them and don't get caught! And who's to say they didn't ask for it?! Even if Trump himself said they didn't and he just does whatever he likes because he's Trump!

    Got it.
    Thanks.

    I must say you're not the kind of boy I want my daughter to bring home, mate. Not with that attitude. You're the type that causes us to sit on the porch with a shotgun when our daughters start dating.

    Well it isn't exactly unknown that women will readily drop their drawers for rich and powerful men? Get a grip for gods sake!

    "it isn't as if he raped them" Would you say that if it was your daughter?
    "Who's to say they didn't ask for it" My God are you serious. Haven't you heard this is the 21st Century, time to come out of the cave and put down the club.

    What I obviously meant is that he didn't rape anyone's daughter? :rolleyes:

    Tell that to today's females, especially the chavs, clubbers, and weekend bingers.[/QUOTE]

    And any rich and powerful man should have the gonads to understand this and be a gentleman, something that the 45th President of the United States of America can never claim to be. He cannot even in my honest opinion, classify himself as a respectful person and in absolutely no way would I call him a man.

    OK So when men do things they are just being blokes, lads, but women in YOUR opinion should toe some imaginary line that YOU draw which if they step over it, they are "asking for it".

    I would steer well clear of any man who thought like that if I was a woman, who knows, You may ask for it, and he just may give it to you. scary

    Trump himself said and I quote:

    " I’ve gotta use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything… Grab them by the *****. You can do anything."

    Quite frankly, President Trump sounds like a pimply, ugly 16 year old boy big noting himself behind the boys shed, but nowhere does he say women invite his attentions. He admits straight up he forces his attentions on them, you bloody nong!

    But this adult's had enough of this conversation. You're OK with men groping women uninvited so long as they don’t actually rape them. I'm not ok with it. I call it assault. Possibly because I've been on the receiving end of it more than once and no, Cerberus, I did not "ask for it." Nor is my experience unusual in any way. If you removed your head from your rear and asked you'd discover pretty well all women have been groped. Why the hell did you think so many people - men and women -we're outraged by Trump’s little boast ?

    I know he said it because I heard the recording; what I'm saying is it was in all probability macho locker talk, and that he didn't do it??

    Well if you're going to get shirty I guess there's no point in further discussion. So sayonara.

    Look, you can't deny that he was a looker in his younger years, and together with being rich and powerful too, there's never any shortage of women who go for men like that - it's a well-known fact and I'm surprised you've never heard it.

    If the American FBI are right, then 95% of terrorist attacks between 1980-present in America are non-Muslim. It is all Islamic hysteria. What is the aim of terror attacks? We are told not to let terrorists win, because while ever we are scared of them being under our bed we aren't doing the things we need and want to do. Smoke and mirrors is all it is.

    We should be concerned about it like we should be with DV, drunken one punch assaults, bikie gangs, drink drivers etc etc. People are that wrist flappingly obsessed with it that it's getting to the point of delusion, which drives hate and division. All of a sudden you have crazies embellish stories in an attempt to justify their hysteria.

    Get a grip of reality I say to those people.

    Do you get the feeling that Cerberus doesn't see the attitudes he ascribes to Trump and women say more about his own attitudes to women then they do about Trump or women? Our arrows keep missing because women are whores who wet their pants for a wealthy looker*, so men can do no wrong?

    And still, I can't help but feel that if some slimy, filthy, privileged, overindulged, wealthy piece of dirt laid a hand on Cerberus's daughter he'd drop the bustard with a 12 gauge shotgun, just as you and I would. ;)


    * I can and do deny Donald was ever a looker, but I've never been partial to blonds.

    So who do you think is responsible for 95% of terrorist attacks in Europe (including the UK) over the same period? Or would you say that's all 'Islamic hysteria' too??

    You confidently asserted that '95% of terrorist attacks between 1980-present in America are non-Muslim', so I'm wondering if you are equally convinced that the terrorist attacks in Europe were also non-Muslim? To make it a bit more clear - do you also believe the terrorist attacks in Europe were non-Muslim? And if you do believe they were non-Muslim, then who do you believe did inspire those attacks in London, Paris, Brussels, Nice, etc? I believe that they were Islamic atrocities.

    Well yeah, but were they the only terrorist attacks you noticed because they are so called Islamic related and the only ones you are programmed to fear?

    Now I'm the one who's confused. But I'm not 'programmed to fear', I am instinctively fearful, and if you live in the western world you should be too; not next week, nor next month, but soon, and perhaps to a shopping mall near you.

    Look, I'm not trying to deflect or anything, but Australian border control can be this bad to foreigners.

    I have also suffered long waits. Its just the price we pay to have tight border control AND avoid profiling.

    She got let in eventually, as did Mohammed Ali Jnr. They both seemed to have a similar experience.

    So you must admit on the face of it that the agents are not "profiling"

    I will leave the judgment of his looks up to you. Would you say, that a self-respecting intelligent man was morally suitable to lead the United States of America if he was that weak that he would resort to using his wealth and power to molest women and treat them like sex objects?

    If a woman wants to be treated as a sex object, that's rather up to her, isn't it? Why are you obsessing on this?

    What exactly are you fearful of, you seem to be creating fear out of nothing, just what the Jihadists want. Do you remember several months back when one of the ISIS leaders put out a message of social media calling all Muslims to Jihad. Rise up he said, in America, in Australia, In England and the rest of Europe. Cut the throats of non-believers he said.

    Now out of 1.6 billion Muslims, 23% of the world's population, I think 3 or 4 teenagers, you know, young rebellious people searching for a cause actually did something. Say it was 100 even, it was absolutely nowhere near that number, did something. So out of all the Muslims, all those so called potential Jihadists, he could only convince 0.00000625% to do anything. Yeah, that is a worldwide movement.

    Yes I have no problem if a woman wants to be treated like a sex object, I have no problem with them being a slut, a whore or a prostitute. I do however have a problem with Gonadless men who then use that as an excuse for their OWN WEAKNESS and say "Well they asked for it". It is the cop-out cry of a coward.

    For Christ's sake, we know Trump won't, but can't you man up just this once?

    And...and you are just ASS U MEing that they WANTED to be treated as sex objects because it solves your moral dilemma and suits your agenda.

    I disagree, the US are profiling and have been for years, it's worse now with Trump. Mem Fox wrote a book about accepting multiculturalism and suddenly after 116 visits to the US she gets detained. I've read quite a number of stories, all about profiling of specifically muslims and activists.

    We are often asked to 'step aside' at US borders. It's not making anyone safer

    Is there profiling in Australian border security, possibly but not even close to the scale of what's going on in the US at the moment.

    So the US treat their visitors (and citizens in many cases) like crap, it cost them US$185 million for the month of Feb

    However that is not a free pass to treat EVERY woman like a sex object

    And worst of it? Unless a woman is dress in full Hibab some men will use any dress code/behaviour/accidental slip of the tongue as a signal that that woman wants to be "treated as a sex object"

    Oh! And just to save you a few slaps in the face - you can appreciate a woman's beauty, posture, stance, clothing etc WITHOUT treating her as a "sex object" and for most women not being paid for sex - they would much rather be treated as beautiful than sexy
