Long before #MeToo became the catalyst for a women's movement about sexual assault — and a decade before the fall of Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby and U.S. Olympic gymnastic doctor Larry Nassar — there was Jeffrey Edward Epstein. #PerversionofJustice pic.twitter.com/z3rIvzQWE9 — Miami Herald (@MiamiHerald) November 28, 2018 If you're a registered sex offender it helps to have millions of dollars to make the problem go away. Financier Jeffrey Epstein, well-connected with the Washington power elite, was able to spend a small fraction of his vast fortune in 2017 to avoid a life sentence in prison for molesting and abusing kids (thanks to a secret deal he made with servile federal prosecutors). From Sputnik News: Epstein's teen sex trafficking ring worked like a pyramid scheme, according to victims, who say they were paid to give massages to Epstein, paid extra for sex acts and paid even more to recruit more girls between the ages of 13 and 16 into the ring. The girls were...

Fox and Cosmos are investigating Neil deGrasse Tyson for allegedly engaging in sexually inappropriate behavior, Variety reports. This comes on the heels of a Nov. 29 story in which two women leveled accusations at the astrophysicist. On Thursday, Patheos published interviews with Tyson's fellow astronomer Dr. Katelyn N. Allers and his former assistant Ashley Watson. Tyson has also been accused of sexual assault in the past. “My experience with him is he’s not someone who has great respect for female bodily autonomy,” Allers said. SEE ALSO: San Francisco Google employees walk out in protest of sexual harassment “We have only just become aware of the recent allegations regarding Neil deGrasse Tyson," Fox said in a statement.

Kant we recognize that the problem doesn't go away if you exclude dead white establishment males? Admiring the great thinkers of the past has become morally hazardous. Praise Immanuel Kant, and you might be reminded that he believed that ‘Humanity is at its greatest perfection in the race of the whites,’ and ‘the yellow Indians do have a meagre talent’. Laud Aristotle, and you’ll have to explain how a genuine sage could have thought that ‘the male is by nature superior and the female inferior, the male ruler and the female subject’. Write a eulogy to David Hume, as I recently did here, and you will be attacked for singing the praises of someone who wrote in 1753-54: ‘I am apt to suspect the Negroes, and in general all other species of men … to be naturally inferior to the whites.’We seem to be caught in a dilemma. We can’t just dismiss the unacceptable prejudices of the past as unimportant. But if we think that holding morally objectionable views disqua...

In December of last year, two months after the Harvey Weinstein exposé, Matt Damon made the point that "one thing that’s not being talked about is there are a whole s—load of guys [...] who don’t do this kind of thing and whose lives aren’t going to be affected." His comments were swiftly derided, because no one deserves a pat on the back simply for refraining from abusing someone. Perhaps, though, in an odd sort of way, he did have a point. What about the guys "who don't do this kind of thing" – all the well-meaning folks who are neither victim nor perpetrator? How are they part of this narrative? What role do they have to play?
