I am skeptical of most #MeToo sexual harassment allegations unless there is evidence. However, the recent allegations concerning Al Franklin have been verified by a photograph.
Back in 2006, Al Franken thought it would be funny to grab the breasts of a sleeping news reporter named Leeann Tweeden. She said she did not give consent and felt humiliated.
While this is not a rape, it definitely violates Twitter's new Verified User policy of not engaging in real world harassment.
Twitter recently out sourced their censorship enforcement to the ADL.
It will be interesting if the ADL holds Al Franken, a liberal Jew, to a different standard. I doubt that they will remove Al Franken's verification. Instead, they will just accuse anyone of questioning this double standard as being an "anti-Semite."

I am not sure why the state should prevent a mother from marrying her daughter. A common argument against incest is that it can produce a genetically defective baby. But, obviously, a mother and a daughter can't create a baby. So the opposition must only be for moral reasons.
Yet, we are mocked when we claim that homosexual marriage is destructive to a society. We are told to "mind your own business" and "how does it hurt you?"
Maybe so. But then, logically. how does it hurt you if a mother wants to marry her daughter?
The slippery slope is real.
