How does employing a rapist not constitute an unsafe work environment for female employees?
  • I never said they did.

    Yes you did, and your fellow cultists have been doing that the entire day. It's the logical inference from your stances, which you have been desperately trying to bait and switch us to accept with lame Motte and Baileys, strawmen, and complete exaggerations and distortions of your enemies -- we're you're enemies to you, and trust me, the feeling is mutual -- and you're not getting one over on us. You're not going to weasel your way out of arguing that employers are somehow obligated to put food on the tables of rapists.

    Honestly you should know better than to presume employers are obligated of anything toward anyone. They don't even really have any obligation to fire him, and if you genuinely were trying to be logically consistent and not some gross-ass rape apologist, you would have used that reasoning from the get-go. But you didn't, because protecting rapists is important to you. Because you're vile.

    Like?

    Like not my problem. Oh, I'm sorry, I guess that was just a dismissal instead of you doing a simple Indeed.com search for remote work. Silly me. I forgot we're morally obligated to cater to the needs of rapists simply because you're angry that evil people face lifelong consequences for their actions and that is somehow unfair to you (because you fear that happening to you or your friends. Implying you're going to do something nasty to somebody)

    A lot of fears are valid, but that doesn’t necessarily justify acting on them.

    Well, we're not talking about a lot of fears, we're talking about the serious and credible threat of the presence of a rapist. And OP is justified in talking to his coworkers and bosses about this whether you like it or not. Get over it, like you tell rape victims to do when you're not brainwashing them.

    What does this have to do with me?

    You tell us, you've made the whole thread and OP's serious problems he came for advice on all about you. All Damn Day.

    They can quit, they can force the employer to fire him, or they can tolerate it. Fundamentally, there is nothing he can change now to make himself more tolerable to his coworkers, and its not his employers job to punish him again.

    Yep, burden's all on everyone else and so everything must happen in favor of the rapist. The world revolves around him, and the rights of the community are secondary to his. We know that's your stance.

    Also an employer firing someone like that is an act to protect their employees and, probably more importantly for them, to protect the business from liability. It's not even a punishment but you're throwing a temper tantrum trying to make it out as if it is.

    Actions. Have. Consequences. Get over that fact. Get over the fact that that rapist brought it upon himself, and there's nothing you can or should do about it. What you want is not right. What you want is unconscionable and wrong.

    How?

    By being a rapist, an implied rapist of women when there are women in the workplace from OP's post. And like it or not, being a rapist makes you a threat to the community, permanently. Rape is an act you can NEVER walk away from, NEVER move on from, and given the horrific nature of the act, that's how things must be for life to be right and just. Just because you don't feel that way doesn't make it not true.

    Your outlook and perspective is skewed, but again, that's because you perceive yourself as a potential rapist so that's not a surprise.

    Why is this the argument?

    Because you clearly don't empathize or care about anyone other than yourself. Especially not OP or anyone in OP's position, or his friend, or his coworkers. Or his employer, for that matter.

    Where did I apologize for rape?

    The entire thread. All day. Your stance is by its nature rape apologia, and you know this but you just don't care because you don't care about anyone other than yourself and your own feelings.

    Hell, if your loved ones were in a situation like that, you would say the exact same thing you are now, and that's what makes you a rape apologist. It doesn't matter to you. You don't even respect me enough to be honest about it.


    You can front about it all day, but you are a rape apologist. And until you change your stance and throw away your shitty opinions on the matter, you'll continue to be one. And one day, when something like this happens to someone you love, you really WILL tell them what you're telling us here, and you will destroy that person. If they are a victim, you'll either successfully brainwash them, and they will go on to destroy others, or you'll cause them PTSD and drive them to drug addiction and suicide, statistically.

    Take heart in that no employer will ever fire you for that, for what it's worth.

  • It doesn't matter, because this is not about felony convictions. This is about a rapist in the workplace.

    Quite frankly, rapists need to be jailed for life in order to prevent situations like this in the first place. Rape is one of those crimes for which one should not be able to move on from.

  • Ignore strawmen like yours right now.

    Meanwhile, the rest of us will keep rapists out of workplaces where they have opportunities to harm others and live our lives knowing we have the best interests of those around us at heart.

  • Look all around the thread. You goons have been at it the entire day. But we both know you don't actually give a shit. You'll step all over whoever you have to to get what you want, including rape victims, assuming you don't brainwash them into your disgusting little cult first.

    Because draconian punishments are typically associated with conservative political positions. Hardly the bastion of women’s rights. And above is the real history of how slavery in the American Colonies was started. It was successive pushes for harsher and harsher punishments until they just decided to take the mask off.

    Draconian punishments have nothing to do with the thread.

    Neither do conservatives or petty red vs. blue politics.

    This shit is exactly what I'm talking about. You took a real and serious issue: workers being exposed to the presence of a known sexual predator in the workplace in a situation they can't easily escape, jeopardizing the safety of everyone in that place, and you made it all about YOU. All about your overdramatized and blatant strawmen, all about your own warped assumptions and biases -- I'm not even right wing -- and you created this monstrosity of a straw... caricature of an opponent for you to bash the hell out of.

    All so you can endanger innocent workers by exposing them to a rapist.

    Because what you're demanding is wrong and you KNOW it. 🤦

    You're fucking monstrous. Your spirit is hideous.

    1. It's not the company's responsibility to employ him.

    2. There are plenty of jobs he can get where he doesn't interact with anyone.

    3. OP and the other workers have a serious, legitimate, valid fear of this asshole and their rights are fundamentally more important than his, because it's their safety and security on the line, not his or by extension yours. He is not you

    4. You're being overly emotional and melodramatic, and it's obvious you're doing it on purpose because you know what you're asking for is horrific.

    No one owes that clown a living and if you don't like it, it's too fucking bad. He should have thought about that before being a dirty rapist, just as you should have thought before you opened your stupid fucking mouth.

    The people at that job do NOT have to suffer his presence to appease you. They do NOT have to endanger themselves by being around a fucking rapist!

    Don't you care about their rights at all? Their rights are being violated by virtue of him being there, doesn't that matter to you at all? Would you want your cousin or your sister or your mother or your wife to work in a situation like that? Or are you gonna insult my intelligence by lying to my face saying they or you do already, so surely rape apologia is good for us peasants too?

  • It literally doesn't matter because this isn't a discussion of the death penalty. This is an individual asking about a serious situation at work you deliberately ran off the rails to push a political agenda. Take your anti-justice garbage and shut it.

    Oh, and by the way, OP's friend being expected to work alongside their rapist functionally is worth than death.

  • It is to you because that is how you framed it. Re-read what you wrote. You and your cult have offered nothing but logical fallacies, especially Motte and Baileys, strawmen, transparent threats, and talking points for an anti-justice, anti-victim, anti-woman political agenda. And you do it because you don't care about rape victims or their lives, and you don't care about OP, you're here on your hustle looking to push an agenda.

    And I am telling you NO. Get the fuck on. Get off our lawn.

  • That's because your idea of a sane society is a rape culture patriarchy where men can do what they want and women have to put up with it. We have a term for what you're asking for. It's called a slave racket.

    And we're not your slaves.

    Rehabilitation and punishment have nothing to do with what OP is talking about and in modern and sane societies, rapists aren't allowed to work alongside their victims. But sadly, there are very few modern and sane societies, if any, because the truth is you all want to rape, benefit from rape, and benefit from seeing others raped. You're just evil. There's no way around that.

    You're just looking for excuses to protect a rapist. You're sick.

  • Yes the fuck you are, you vile, disgusting rape apologist. You and your ilk have:

    • Told us that rape is more recoverable than murder, therefore it's not as bad
    • Insisted society has an obligation to feed people and therefore a known sexual predator has rights that supercede the rights of his victims or potential victims that would be violated if the company fired them to protect the rest of the workplace
    • That a company would have no liability to protect its women workers and that, in fact, the woman would create a hostile work environment for the rapist by complaining about it
    • That women should just shut up and get over it, and suffer the presence of a rapist.

    These are positions your little cult have argued, hiding behind flowery language and Motte-and-bailey arguments, and you will NOT escape responsibility for your words.

    You are a rape apologist. Period.

    You are a backwards-ass sexist who belongs in the 20th century. You'd get along well with Brett Kavanaugh, Bill Cosby and all of their ilk.

  • Well, when did anyone say they were ostracizing a rapist? You want to talk about logical fallacies, you best look at yourself and your compatriots here.

    Firing them from a job like that, where they have to work closely with women and have the opportunity to reoffend, isn't ostracization the way you're flagrantly exaggerating it to be. It's called common sense.

    The other employees have every right to fear being raped because there is a known sexual predator in the workplace. It's a specific and credible fear that not only is grossly immoral if the company doesn't act, it also will put them in a position of extreme liability. That scumfuck should never have gotten past the background check in the first place.

    And you don't care about that because all you care about is yourself. Because like the other apologists here, you're thinking from a perspective of "But what if I get caught?" and that means you believe you or someone you know will rape someone someday -- and you'll keep them in your life anyway, because you don't care about justice or morality, you only care about shielding your friends from consequences.
