ohhhhmyyygawdd... Well, me thinks the plaintif in this case has most likely left out a whole lot of truth; the stuff she is culpable of having done to (and with!) our forever do-right, Des. (As played by Henry. His name is Henry is it? Well, he makes "Henry" awfully sexy now doesn't he, brotha!)
p.s. He could motorboat me, I wouldn't get bitchy about it and sue.

Btw, what the heck is going on now with Des (and Penny)?? Before Flight 815 He used to be the only one on the island -- (besides Ben and others) and now... he's the only one NOT on the island...! What does it mean?!

So Desmond's a motorboatin' sonofabitch, is that news?

Are two women really so dismissive of this, didmissing the plaintiff? Calling her bitchy? I bet you'd be horrified if a co-worker grabbed yr tits and rubbed his face back and forth. I realize how enjoyable burying ones face in tits can be, between consenting adults, but it's real gnarly when forced. I think an actor can play a great character and still be a total d.
I know this is a funny blog, but empathy is a helpful trait in life. From the victims perspective there's nothing funny about this. And one would imagine as women y'all would not be so cold.

Here's another report to the story:

what is worse? being sexually harassed or not having your boss do anything about it?

I'm not surprised at the dismissive responses, considering this is a blog who thinks Ben would make a better parent than Kate.

In all seriousness though, shame on you, Mr. Cusick. For goodness sakes man, you played Jesus. You should know better.

The Armeniac said...

Good point Cody. I forgot that OPM lost all its' moral bearings a few weeks ago, so sad that the Age of Obama begins with such a loss of moral fiber.
On the upside I now know that one of my favorite things to do is called "motorboating"!

madewell said...

DP,

you didn't know that was called motorboating???

and cody, you really need to get over those poll results.

The Armeniac said...

Madwell,
it's true, I've led a cloistered life. I always just called it "the best" when I was motorboating.

lil' maxwell said...

I didn't know it was called motorboating until Madeline told me. Then again, I'm not even close to finishing "college".

Eryn said...

Just thought I'd throw in one more "brutha" for good measure.

Just one comment, because this blog is really about Lost.
Yes, I can think for myself which means I'm not about to jump on the sexual harassment bandwagon of "I'm a woman so my point of view can't be my own on this topic; it's forced upon me to believe any random woman who claims she's a victim of it." On the flip side, I shouldn't be so quick to dismiss. Point taken, Armeniac. I wasn't there (neither were you)- so who knows what the real story is. However... why are you so quick to believe the story? And why are you saying because I'm a woman I should believe it's true? Wow, now that's some archaic thinking. C'mon, it seems a tad questionable. Male/female coworkers get "friendly" with each other all the time - then the arrangements don't work out longterm and the woman can get vindictive and hollers Sexual Harassment. OR, the man can become a stalker, combative and tries to force himself upon her. It happens - shocking, because that behavior is so lacking in moral fiber. You don't think ppl/women lie about things like this - and other serious things as well?? Ppl lie & twist the truth alll the time in hopes of their 15 min, a fat pay-out or, hold on to your socks now, to avoid responsibility for their own actions. And, as a woman, I know how women can be. Yeah - they can be real bitchy. Gasp! Whatever the truth may be, I hope it's revealed and there is adjudication. (and btw, do you really think the moral fiber should suddenly be so pure simply because we have an african american president...? If that's your theory, then be mad at the ones who are really doing the victimizing in this, the "age of Obama." Because man, the moral fiber is as bad as it's ever been - if not worse. Jeez, your world is even more fantastical than... Lost!)
