So far it’s been a “pick and choose” system. Some men are banished to the ash heap very quickly (Matt Lauer), others hang on, Clinton-like, and hope for the whole thing to pass (Al Franken.)
Will Bill Ayers, who’s been accused of orchestrating and participating in a gang rape. skate, free as a bird, and perhaps guilty as sin?
Bill Ayers’ apartment was around the corner and a half a block away from the sorority house… Sometimes I would stop by… What I do recall is that when I was getting ready to leave Ayers told me I couldn’t go until I slept with his roommate and his brother.
At first I thought Ayers was joking. I got up; and went to the door. He moved quickly to block me at the doorway. He locked the door and put the chain on it. I went to the couch and sat down and told him that I had no intention of having sex with his roommate and his brother or him. He said that I had no choice but to do as he said if I wanted to get out of there. He claimed that I wouldn’t sleep with his married roommate because he was black – that I was a bigot.
I felt trapped. I had to get out of the situation I was in and because he was so effective a guilt-tripper, I also felt I had to prove to him that I wasn’t a bigot. I got up from the couch and walked over to the black roommate’s bed and put myself on it
ht/ all too much
