    Rather unpleasant for the player involved and not to trivialise , but really?

    Accusing Sepp Blatter of sexual harassment is a bit like accusing Jeremy Corbyn of dabbling in lefty politics.

    Sepp Blatter is a blatant criminal who has been involved in just about everything from bribery, corruption, theft and has spent untold amounts of FIFA money on parties and hookers.

    It's not like this is lifting the lid on a culture of criminality and sense of entitlement at FIFA - just about everyone in the world already knows that.

    At this point sexual assault is so widespread, I genuinely think there is some merit to the idea men and women shouldn't be alone together.

    You never know what is going through someones mind no matter how innocent the initial request may seem.

    Justice isnt cheap, if the CPS doesnt take your case, private prosecutions are expensive

    That would be overestimating the uh... widespreadedness... by quite a degree.

    Interesting though that most men try to deny it. At least Louis CK admitted it. Although is he regretful. Of what. Doing it or being caught?

      Exactly.

      What Britain needs is segregated schools, (train) carriages, workplaces, ... well, in fact, everything.

      It also would help if women covered their bodies and faces up, with something unappealing like a dustbin, since of course men clearly can't control themselves.

      Logical fallacy.

      Segregated has negative connotations because of the US South, something more like being far more cautious in meeting guys alone is mor reasonable.

      I think laws like having a female nurse present when having certain procedures with a male doctor are good

      Problem exists, cant just reject potential solutions because they offend you.

      Well pretty don't think its up for debate, large percentage of men cant control themselves

      Majority of women have experience some form of this

      It's probably the same amount for men but no one cares.

      Also Hope Solo complaining about someone touching her after she beat her sister and her kid?
