Re: Sucks to be Gary Block
Editor's note: Dusti Rhodes wasn't too pleased after reading the comments on Isiah Carey's blog about Gary Block's civil suit. She spit out the following remarks faster than you can say "blame the victim."
There's nothing like blaming a woman after she claims she was sexually harassed. I mean those eyes, those thighs — c'mon, how can men resist? Reading the comments from Isiah Carey's blog really puts things in perspective.
Mark Barrajas, who we're guessing is not related to this guy, screams:
THIS WOMAN IS A TYPICAL WHORE THAT GIVES WOMAN HOOD A BAD NAME. SHE SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN SERIOUS. SHE WANTS A PIECE OF ACTION. HE SHOULD SUE HER FUCKY ASS.
You heard it here first, folks: fucky ass.
Jeff Jancoat agrees:
I agree with Mark. This is the type of woman that gives us woman a very bad name. I think she wanted to get ahead in the legal world and didnt make it. she should of gave him some real nookie.
First off, "gives us a bad name"? Really, Jeff? Gives us? Well, Jeff — if that is your real name — I doubt she would have gotten ahead in the legal world for giving "real nookie." I mean, remember what happened to this secretary. She didn't get promoted — just married; however, maybe you think marriage is the best a woman can hope for these days. Touche.
Let's not forget Toni Richard, whose profile says her lone interest is "equality." Her first post said that since the plaintiff was a lawyer, she should've known how to avoid situations like this. Toni even suggests the plaintiff should go to jail, for just being stupid, we guess. Her second post gives more reasons the plaintiff deserved it:
This type of woman is 2nd class. Like Jan said she gives women like ua a bad rep. These types of lawsuits make it harder for us to be taken serious when real accounts take place.
You're right, Toni. You know what else makes it hard for women who claim they've been harassed to be taken seriously? People who cast their stories aside as fabrications. In fact, don't most women refuse to come forward out of the fear that no one will believe them? But maybe you've actually been sexually harassed before, Toni, and know how easy it is to walk away and make people believe you are telling the truth. Maybe the plaintiff could learn a little something from you.
Toni continues ...
We as women are attracted to men in power. That doesn't mean that we will degrade ourselves to be with one, in order to get what we want and then file some crazy lawsuite to get even.
Well, professional athletes, if you want to know who to take on date, look no further than Toni, whose Myspace profile says she's single. If you'd like to read more of Toni's thoughtful insights, check out her work as the editor for the The Tomball-Spring Times. -- Dusti Rhodes
