How do you go about getting a girlfriend? Websites?
We are all entitled to ask out and court (multiple times, too) whoever we want so long as we do so respectfully and don't force anyone into anything. Most people have good intentions when they ask someone else out - the paranoia regarding rape and harassment some people display is ridiculous.
RC8 is being coy. He also believes that exclusive heterosexuality is fairly mythical too. We've had this debate.
The point here though is the politics of gender and sexuality, as we understand them as social constructs at least. Rob Ford is playing them out in a particularly distasteful way. He's losing all credibility, except with the small minority of people he is pandering to.
But apologies, this is too off-topic now. Let's just all celebrate we condemn rape and harassment and move on.
That said, I have to admit last year I didn't think Ford skipping pride was a huge deal. All those of you saying it showed blatant bigotry and homophobia have sadly been proved correct this year.
Skipping the flag-raising ceremony is pathetic, and it's sad that doing so may actually win him votes among certain intolerant minorities. I stand corrected on that particular issue.
Thanks for that. It goes a long way to explain her complete lack of any journalistic integrity when dealing with Hizzoner.
Toronto Star: Toronto police will not charge reporter Daniel Dale over Mayor Rob Ford incident
Police investigators have “found no evidence” that Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale was on the mayor’s property or looked over his fence last week and will not be charging him in connection with his well-publicized confrontation with Rob Ford.
* * *
Ford has alleged multiple times through the media that Dale “peered” over his fence and took photographs of his backyard. He has also repeatedly claimed that his next-door neighbour, Zdravko Gagro, saw Dale standing on stacked cinderblocks behind his fence. Gagro has since declined to verify this to the Star or other newspapers, however.
Ford claims Dale’s actions were captured by surveillance video, which he immediately turned over to police as evidence. On Wednesday, investigators told Dale they viewed the video but would not describe what was on it.
They said, however, they found no evidence to warrant allegations that Dale was on Ford’s property or peering over his fence.
But the question is, will they charge Rob Ford?
Threatening someone with violence and demanding they give you their phone - while on public property - is certainly a chargeable offence.
Dale has said he has no interest in pressing charges, however. Which is nice of him.
