I've read several threads by black women about their experiences mirroring those of the woman with Ansari. They are gripping, brave, painful. They evoke the fear of reprisal & how sexual agency shifts.
I am not RTing because I don't want to encourage trolling.
But I thank them.
The fact is millions of women have had this experience precisely because we DO exert power over our own sexual agency. But that power ceases when the man chooses to ignore consent being withdrawn. The facile "just leave" narrative white women are pushing we've heard before.
For generations women have been told there's a point where they are no longer allowed to withdraw consent.
That narrative must end. For women to have true sexual agency and choice, men must assent to follow the rules and not impose their own or the threat of violence.

1/ This is directly in my wheelhouse as a civil rights lawyer. A settlement agreement is nothing but a contract. The measure of contractual breach is the consideration paid by the other side. Read on to learn more.
2/ Sometimes there are liquidated damages tied to breach of confidentiality (like $10K for every breach). But the maximum for the breach should be the total compensation paid to the victim. So that’s a known quantity.
3/ The brave women speaking out face the potential of defamation suits by rich perpetrators. If #TimesUp or others want to protect silence breakers, offering defamation defense is key. Many fear speaking out b/c they can’t afford a defense. Even tho truth is an absolute defense!

Couple of things, @sullydish...
Firstly, nice try but women will not be silent anymore, & you don’t get to tell us to shut up. Secondly, I believe @Lollardfish has already addressed this:

#TimesUp #MeToo #GTFO
Seriously, the fucking audacity of some ppl is astonishing. They never stop trying to silence survivors.

It’s incredible. The number of men accused is small compared to their victims. The number of men accused is small compared to how many men there are in Hollywood & DC.
I’m so done with this shit. Allow me to show y’all some shocking -yet not at all shocking to many of us- information.

*Trigger Warning*

Look at what has happened to Cat Sadler, Carrie Gracie and Michelle Williams. There is no transparency about pay equity. #PAYUP.
Nine years ago, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act was passed. Yet nothing has changed. #PayUp

On a very special night, as long as everyone wears black, if one industry of rampant perversion lectures another industry of rampant perversion super self-righteously, all the perversion is solved.
Gal Gadot is a perfect human. We don’t deserve her protection. #goldenglobes
Oh, hi, @TheRock! There are two perfect humans on stage. We don’t deserve their protection.

Dear John: In June and July 2011, during the time period that he was advising Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, John Podesta joined the board of three related entities:
• Joule Unlimited, a small Massachusetts-based energy company.

• Joule Global Holdings, N.V., its holding company, which was based in the *Netherlands*

• Joule Global Stichting, the ultimate controlling entity.
According to corporate records, Podesta served on the “executive board.”

Joule was the new tech company, founded in 2007, and claimed to pioneer a technology they called “Liquid Fuel from the Sun,” based on harnessing solar energy.

Right up his alley.
