Journalist who broke Aziz Ansari story attacks news anchor

"But this is the story of millions of young women everywhere, where you just made a mistake".
Ansari released a statement saying he went on a date with the woman and engaged in sexual activity "which by all indications was completely consensual". She tells The Current's Anna Maria Tremonti that it's important to expand our understanding of sexual violence, and to realize that events ranging from "bad dates" to violent rape exist on a spectrum.
Yet in our current culture, where women's boundaries are seen as negotiable or unimportant, and women are socialized not to be vocal about their sexual desires or needs, the practice of badgering women into sex becomes inevitable-as does the fact that women go on to feel anything from dissatisfaction to deep trauma after a bad encounter.
Flanagan and Valenti are both spot on.
Well, feminists, it's time to stop "feministsplaining" sex to men.
"I cried the whole ride home". Or that this is really any of our business.
The Babe writer added: 'Must be nice to piggyback off of the fact that another woman was courageous enough to speak up and add another dimension to the societal conversation about sexual assault. This reckoning was long overdue, and hard won. And now here is where I am going to claim victim. But behind closed doors, he also belittles, harasses, and sexually assaults women.
Women have the right to a harassment-free workplace.
'She DISGUSTS me, and I hope when she has more distance from the moment she has enough of a conscience left to feel remotely ashamed - doubt it, but still'. Treat your colleagues with respect and professionalism. At another point Grace told Babe, "I said I don't want to feel forced because then I'll hate you, and I'd rather not hate you". "We stand by our story", said site editor Amanda Ross. Others, being really dismissive about "Grace" and her experience. We asked her for everything.
"This isn't show and tell", she said.
But there is a problem. No crimes were alleged. The story, and its intimate level of detail, just doesn't seem fair.
For me as a recently single girl in her 20s who has gotten back into the dating pool, a lot of what "Grace" talks about in her article is relatable to so many women because it is a common experience. Yet even if I like someone, I will not be rushed into doing something that makes me uncomfortable.
The woman says after being repeatedly pressured for sex she refused and Ansari responded: "How about we just chill, but this time with our clothes on?" She was uncomfortable "at how quickly things escalated". "I want to share this because I think this gives some insight into the caliber of the person who wielded that nuclear weapon at Aziz Ansari's career".
Shaming women who report sexual assault by calling them promiscuous, or gold-diggers, or otherwise terrible people, is a practice as old as rape culture-and, for that matter, so is referring to rape as "a bad date". Yet he didn't force her to do anything.
He says he thought their interactions were consensual. In a grown man, that is nothing short of creepy. Others welcomed the piece for spurring a debate over deeper cultural attitudes that normalize aggressive behavior toward women. She eventually said no - and when she did, he stopped. "Is that what you truly think he deserved for your night out?"
'And I will laugh the day you fold. You ignored clear non-verbal clues; you kept going with advances.
"I'm so sad to hear this", Ansari replied at the time. Or you might think he's in the clear, guilty only of a failure to read Grace's mind.
I, too, am truly sorry that Grace had such an very bad experience.
However, she disagrees that the divide is about age, as much as it is privilege.
I would also caution her about the importance of verbally setting boundaries and how celebrities make awful romantic prospects because they are so often warped by their fame, money and power. But women face more risk when they accept a drink from a unusual man, when they agree to go up to a first date's apartment; men don't have to give their date's name and address to their roommate "just in case" anything bad happens to them.
