    Last night on CTV News at 11:30 some girl in Trinity Bellwoods park was being interviewed about not wearing a mask. As she was speaking, a guy interrupted and kissed her. She certainly wasn't trying to get away, and was clearly enjoying it. After it happened the reporter asked if she was OK and if she was alright with what had happened. Her response was "yeah, he's hot!". After her interview she blew him a kiss, waved, and shouted "text me".

    it seems they had met earlier in the day, gotten to know each other a bit, and that she had had to leave when he was away from the group so she had given one of his friends her phone number to give to the guy. After realizing she had left, finding out she had given her number, and seeing her being interviewed he had run over and kissed her.

    The whole thing was kind of funny, kind of sweet, and looked like something out of a thousand romantic movies.

    But instead of seeing it that way, some social justice fuckwits decided that it was a non-consensual act (they clearly didn't watch the actual kiss because she gave implied consent), that it was sexual assault, etc. Some have even called for the guy to be charged despite the woman who was kissed speaking out and saying that what happened was not sexual assault. And still others have claimed that it promotes (alleged) rape culture! Some moron at a rape crisis centre claims that the woman's positive reaction is simply a symptom of rape culture.

    So now we have groups who claim that all survivors must be believed, social justice warriors, snowflakes with too much time on their hands, etc. all taking the fun and romance out of an innocent kiss (yes, I see it as something innocent). None of them were involved, but they are outraged on behalf of the girl even though she herself is perfectly fine with what happened.

    Not only are they spewing outrage, but CTV has bloody well apologized for broadcasting a non-consensual act. They are asking forgiveness as if they did something wrong.

    Seriously, dafuq is wrong with people these days?

    It's only a problem if he slipped her the tongue.

    I have two sons just coming into their teen years. I have no idea what advice to give them regarding them finding their way through the current maze of hormone fueled teenage romance.

    I can’t stand CTV. Social media gives every idiot the platform to preach and hold rallies. If the media stopped covering these like it’s the second coming of Christ, it would die on the vine.

    PragerU discusses supposed rape
    Culture. His arguments are sound. And one point is this. If rapeCulture truly exists then why are parents sending their tweens to college? Well because it doesn’t.

    thought you might enjoy this one. PJW Is funny and makes some good points. the left is chaos.

    Don't get the girls pregnant and carry a bunch of small bills not one or two big ones. Other than that they will learn the same way we did. Oh yeah, after about a month the condom in their wallet is pretty much toast. Oh yeah, the first time a sweet little thing breaks your son's heart.....that you find out about.....give him a beer. It will take his mind off things for a bit.

    I've always liked their on-air people and have watched because of them. I also like the fact that they do national news at 11pm, which is followed by local news. Of course I take their positions with a huge grain of salt.

    But when watching again last night I was ticked off when they kept stating that a 'stranger' had kissed the woman despite both the man and the woman involved having said that they spent much of the afternoon together. So they were not strangers, but CTV continues to try to make it look like some random guy kissed some random woman.

    the news is not broadcast to keep us informed. It's broadcast to sell commercial time. They cater to the drama queens

    Its beyond hope. I think I have given up on main stream media. It all seems like a giant farce. Fake news. Drama. No drama? Go make some. I tried following my once trusted media outlets on social media. As I dontwatch TV. I see so much drama. I see photos that misrepresent the story to draw people in. Click bait. Paid advertisements dressed up as news stories. They sure had a hey day with covid. They had everyone in panic mode raping store shelves and hoarding toilet paper. And they rubbed their hands together loving the increased viewers.

    I’m not sure I have a trusted news source any more. It seems to be all about commercial generated income. Thats it. Truth or not. Makes no difference. Staying home, minding my own business, turning off mainstream media, saving money, paying less taxes, fees and levies is starting to look more and more attractive each passing day.

    It has always been this way. Back in the 80’s I was interviewed by BCTV for a story. It aired that evening. It was a totally different story. They edited my answers to show the story they wanted and completely ignored the story I thought they had interviewed me for. It turned from a story about a logging company that had shut down and left a couple of months worth of fell and bucked timber in the bush to rot to a story about out of work loggers upset because they couldn’t afford to go to the bar. My comment about the bar was made in jest after they had told me the interview was over. They turned that into the main story, never mentioned the rotting timber at all.

    My issue isn't just with the media, but with the overly sensitive and self-righteous assholes who think that their opinions are facts and that they have some sort of right be speak for others and to be offended on their behalf. You know those people who are perpetually offended about something and are completely intolerant of any interpretation other than their own.

    Absolutely, and they are so fucking self-righteous about it too.
