"Men, Tell Us About Your High School Experience."

Fill out this form, just in case you want to tell on yourself before anybody else does.

The NYT wants you to trust it with your information:
We want to hear from men about their high school experiences. A Times editor may contact you with follow-up questions. No information you provide will be published without your permission.
But Christine Blasely Ford didn't want her name to come out, and yet it did. Is the Times more trustworthy than Dianne Feinstein?

Given the stakes these days and the low standard of what counts as sexual abuse — like Cory Booker's reaching for a breast a second time — why would anyone volunteer anything? I understand the value of having an open and honest conversation about these things, but hasn't that route been closed off by the shocking dire consequences to Brett Kavanaugh (and Al Franken and Louis CK, etc.)?

But the NYT has a form it would like you to fill out. The first question is:
Did you ever, as a teenager or younger man, behave toward women in ways you may now regret? If so, how? And how has that experience stayed with you over the years?
Won't this drag in a thousand "Cat Person" and Cory Booker stories? If you've got anything in the Kavanaugh-as-told-by-Blasey category, you'd have to be irrational to put it in writing. Or maybe just old or dying and not looking for another step of professional or social advancement.

I raped the girls' grandmas and little sisters at gunpoint and told them that if they said anything about it I'd kill everybody.

If so, how? And how has that experience stayed with you over the years?

I wake up with a boner.

Your honor, can we stipulate for the record that teen boys have and still drink and attempt to take advantage of girls.

Cacimbo Cacimbo said...

In SJW circles this would be a resume enhancer. Confess to your own innate evil (but like Booker not too horrible) while being sure to connect all men with your own bad deed. Then beg forgiveness and promise to donate money to all kinds of allegedly pro-women charities.You would be considered more woke and hirable then those nasty males who have yet to acknowledge their uncontrollable sexual urges.

Rob said...

If you want to ensure that the Times shreds your submission, tell them you were the guy who assaulted Christine Blasey at that party. They won’t report it, anonymously or otherwise.

LilyBart said...

But Christine Blasely Ford didn't want her name to come out, and yet it did

It would be outrageous for a person to think that they could make an anonymous charge against another person and expect it to be given much weight, expect to be able to ruin a man's life and career from behind a curtain.

If she has something to tell us - grow up and say it. Or stand down. Her choice - but grow up and make a choice.

Chrissy is a nut. The Times and the Democrats, but I repeat myself, are doing her no good by feeding her delusional recovered memory.

Michael K said...

My principle regret is that I did not followup with that 30 year old woman that came on to me when I was 15. But then again, maybe her husband would have shot me.

Carol said...

Everyone parties in high school and has sex!

Not me (not my kids).

You're lying, or don't remember because you were drunk haha.

No, really I never did that (my kids didn't).

Then you were a dork that no one invited (and so are your kids)...


See how that works? They diss you then and 40 years later.

We need to to start standing up to these #Metoo sluts, they doing great damage to both men and women. Pushback, without pushback things go too far and they have, we've created a bunch of female monsters.

Steve M. Galbraith said...

Geez, I went to high school at about the same time as Kavanaugh et al. - the late seventies for me as opposed to the early eighties for them. And in the DC area (Northern VA). And I can say little of what supposedly occurred at his school occurred at mine. Sure there was drinking and sex but nothing like the accounts that Judge recites.

This has to be exaggerated?

AlbertAnonymous said...

First, they never actually want a Conversation. It’s all BS. They want to do more lecturing and indoctrination.

For instance, all week I’ve been hearing repeated over and over that “women often don’t come forward or tell anyone, so that makes her believable.” Soon it’ll be the oft used “women sometimes forget things in these traumatic experiences, so if her story is inconsistent or changes, that makes her believesble.”

Second, we can’t have a conversation, because anything I say will just be labeled “bullying” and dismissed.

Third, why aren’t they asking women for the same thing. (I knew a lot of sluts in HS. They never slept with me sadly, but I knew who they were). But even the regular run of the mill gals had experiences and did things they might regret. I got groped unannounced, without consent. But I didn’t mind so no crime?

This whole thing is a political hit job. Straight of the left’s tried and true playbook.

Obviously, Republicans should each set up burner accounts and pretend to be a different Democratic elected official and ply the times with lurid stories of sexual debauchery from "their" youth:

Mr. D said...

Did you ever, as a teenager or younger man, behave toward women in ways you may now regret?

I'm sure I wanted to, but I don't believe I ever did. I've also heard from a third party that that a certain woman was convinced I had the hots for her in college. This was news to me, because I hadn't.

Like Michael K, I chickened out a couple times at the beginning, but after that it has been game on for 46 years. I have no regrets about anything I did sexually. Not one

wendybar said...

I remember back in the 80's watching two young girls that I know at a town carnival, fighting over who had sex with more boys...they were probably around 16 years old. I was 2 years older and shocked out of my mind. Don't always assume the girls are so innocent. This is just one story I can tell.

President Pee-Pee Tape said...

After the Bart O'Kavanaugh debacle even pre-pubescent childhood horseplay will be investigated decades later amongst high officials nominated for public office decades. Remember when you were younger than age ten and that girl around the corner of similar age decided to play doctor? Get ready for the hearings!

I agree that Republicrooks have been making good on their agenda to rape the country for decades, including with conservative judicial activism of every kind. But this is getting fucking ridiculous.

This, the previous two, and today's first post convince me that rhhardin has a point. This is all purile gossip and soap opera. Or at least this is what the press is selling. Thanks to the press, the Democrats, and this oh so convenient Ford person, an otherwise straight forward nomination process has been turned into a literal bodice ripper. Jurisprudence and qualifications - borrrring. High School drinking, debauchery, and will she or won't she - now there's the ticket.

Howard said...

I swam in high school and it was one of the few girls sports in those days. We worked out in the same pool every day and hung out evenings and weekends. One of our favorite adventures would be to get a bottle of crown royal, a sixer of Pepsi, a few opiated Thai sticks and go spelunking in the Manson cave on the old Spahn Ranch off of the Santa Suzanna pass. Sometimes instead, we would climb up to the top of Stony Point or go 4-wheeling in the as yet undeveloped hills above Porter Ranch. We also broke into our coaches pool and would party atop the 10m platform, then once drunk and stoned, would have diving contests Sometimes we would have parties at the home or apartment of a student whose 'rents were gone for the weekend. Good times. No one forced themselves on anyone, but gentle persuasion was sometimes necessary.

NYT Jumps the shark

Rob said...

Dear NYT,

In 1988, when I was 16, I had a job delivering pizzas in Washington, D.C. On one memorable night, I had a pizza delivery to a Ms. Maureen Dowd, a plain cheese pie if I remember correctly. She answered the door in a sheer negligee that happened to fall open just as I handed her the pizza box.

Though she was in her mid-thirties, she looked good. I'm ashamed to admit, I was visibly aroused. "You like what mama's got," she said. I nodded. She reached down and grabbed my manhood. "Mama likes what you've got too." She pulled me into the townhouse where for the next three and a half minutes we made passionate love.

"Okay, Skipper," she said after I was spent, "those pizzas aren't going to deliver themselves," and patted me on the butt. She gave me a $20 bill for her $13.50 pizza, and I drove off into the night.

But still, the memory of that experience haunts me. I can't reach climax unless there's a smell of melted cheese and oregano. How can I recover my youthful innocence?

The most depressing thing about the Trump era is that it constantly validates the proposition that human beings are stupid and will keep making the same mistakes over and over until the end of time. Everybody knows the confirmation process for the Supreme Court sucks and has sucked for decades, right? We all know the reasons it sucks flow directly from what happened to Robert Bork, right? So what do we think is going to result from this Kavanaugh mess?

Kavanaugh is not a Trumper. He's a Federalist Society guy. You can't get more respectable and mainstream in conservative politics. Guys and girls like Kavanaugh desperately want to be part of the Establishment. Few of them have any deep love for Donald Trump. What do you think they're learning from this episode? Hint: It's not an affirmation of their faith in the Establishment.

"Did you ever, as a teenager or younger man, behave toward women in ways you may now regret? If so, how? And how has that experience stayed with you over the years?" I have been haunted since Grade 9 (or was it 7?) by my improper thoughts about Sherry M. Until my hormones awakened (as my therapist later explained) I had paid her no particular mind. But then! One day! OMG she took on this incredible aura of...blushing and welcoming fertility! Or something! Every time I looked her way, I physically trembled and melted with calf-eyed adulation.

Hey, NYT. Try getting through middle school, and then ask that question again.

"Did you ever, as a teenager or younger man, behave toward women in ways you may now regret?"

Yes. I was a pig to my date for the freshman turnabout dance. She slapped me and screamed at me in public.

I was embarrassed and started to become a gentleman at age 16.

Despite the trauma, I remember almost all of the important details.

"This, the previous two, and today's first post convince me that rhhardin has a point."

Those posts -- to intrude on one of Crack's bailiwicks -- are homeopathic thinking: to 'cure' injustice you need to ingest a little injustice.

Dr. Sheetal Mehta, a homeopath for 16 years, offers advice on aiding memory that might be helpful to Blasey Ford:

TREATMENT PROTOCOLS FOR POOR MEMORY

Spleen Kidney and heart are the 3 organs which provides memory

Following are the three patterns of poor memory :

1) spleen deficiency causes poor memory, inability to concentrate and study.

2) deficiency of kidney essence causes poor everyday memory.

3) heart deficiency causes poor memory of past events , forgetting names.


Since "heart deficiency causes poor memory of past events , forgetting names" seems to apply, here is the applicable information regarding the heart:

Main symptoms :

1) poor memory of past events
2) forgetting names
3) absent mindedness
4) tiredness
5) slight breathlessness
6) if there is heart yang deficiency the tongue will be pale with heart cracking
7) if there is heart yin deficiency the tongue will be red with heart crack

Treatment principle :
1) *tone the heart*
2) strengthen the mind and memory"


Ford doesn't need to testify: we can just check her tongue.

I am Laslo.

"This has to be exaggerated?"

No WAY, dude! If I am writing a book about how totally drunk and sexed-out I was in high school, I wouldn't be selective or even inventive, no way!

This whole topic is automatically Fantasy Land, simply because it pertains to middle school and high school. When you add the affluent-elite-sophisticated Maryland status anxiety thing? It becomes a hyperbaric pressure cooker of crazy nonsense.

Grassley should declare a mistrial right now.

There was this time at band camp. Sorry, somebody had to say it.

President Pee-Pee Tape said...

FFS anyway. Does anyone here actually think that every 17-year old should be expected to know the "line" between insufficient chivalry and overly aggressive sexual hyperactivity from Day #1. Jesus. Guess what? If he didn't actually commit a rape (and this is the only accusation), then he's not a predator. He's simply not committed enough to it. Again, Republicans may be political rapists - and this guy's the worst sort, a unitary executive advocate who thinks Trump should be above the law. But this tool isn't the droid you're looking for.

It’s the presumption of the NYT’s request that is so laughable. And the knowledge that their readership is full of the kind of self-flagellating prog White male who will respond to the request that is so appalling.

Comanche Voter said...

Didn't the doofi (plural of doofus) on the NYT staff ever learn that some things are simply "None of your business"? Chattering high school girls may or may not tell their best friends about what happened after the prom; and high school boys may engage in locker room boasts about the number of the girls on the cheer leading squad that they boffed.

As a matter of objective fact, much of what is or was said by either group was false.

But when you reach some level of maturity (I'm not certain at just what age that occurs--it varies among individuals) you realize that your sexual history is and should be private. Offering to share it with the NYT is like pulling the pin on a grenade and simply leaving it in your lap. Something is going to get blown up or off.

President Pee-Pee Tape said...

Ah yes. NYC. The city that screams sexual submission and pacifism. Whatever.

traditionalguy said...

As I recall, the Catholic girls were the easiest to get and seemed to expect some sex. The Baptist girls were the hardest to get until they changed their minds and then they attacked you lustfully. The Episcopal girls were very class conscious and as for sex, if you qualified, they went ahead and knew Forgiveness was right around the corner. The Presbyterian girls were loyal and strong and expected a covenant relationship. The Methodist girls were very sociable and generous with love. The Jewish girls were the most interesting to me and were always realistic.

That was about it.

The Cracker Emcee Rampant said...


“Blogger Freeman Hunt said...

Yes, the speed with which the New Victorians became the New Puritans is amazing. Progressives are regressing so fast, simple conservative folk like me can’t keep up. Maybe that’s the idea.

If I was young and living in the south I would carry around his 11:07 AM comment like a blackjack strategy advice card in Vegas.

But then, if I was young and living in the south I probably wouldn't have needed it. Whatever other faults it has, I found the south's women in general were much less a bunch of falsely shocked pussies "Prissies?" (What? Me? Oh no!) when it comes to basic bio-social conjugation. They are less likely to hate themselves for simply having fun.

Michael K said...

The Jewish girls were the most interesting to me and were always realistic.

All of the Catholic guys I hung out with in Chicago had Jewish girlfriends. Mine was Grace Schultz.

Partly it was because their fathers always bought baseball tickets. We went through the nose jobs and the resulting black eyes.

One girl I dated, whose father was a state Senator, was told to get rid of the goyim boyfriend but nobody else complained.

I think there was an element of living dangerously for the girls. No sex, though. It was the 50s.

I was a cad in high school. I was dating a girl from Titus town and took her to her school’s prom. Our prom was later and when our valedictorian asked lowly me to go, I was flattered and of course I went! Was I cheating? 17 and unmarried?

President Pee-Pee Tape said...

We would be cool, Owen. If it weren't for Bart O'Kavanaugh's forcing of himself into the Merrick Garland seat.

Democrats are just confusing his (and his overseers') rape of the country and our justice system with his non-rape of a girl at age 17.

I suppose it's understandable, as far as political oversights go. The Republicans bungle far worse each and every day.

Let's not get nit-picky here. A groper's in the WH so we'll take Bart's scalp in his place. Fair's fair. This is politics so let's not pretend that the individual person matters.

I once ran a travel agency back in the 70s and as a promotion tried to sell sex tours to the Dominican Republic to sailors at Roosevelt Roads.

I assumed all the girls were of age but never asked.

I AM GUILTY! GUILTY! GUILTY!!!!

OTOH, I don't think I ever sold any. Between the Riviera, Black Angus, Caribe and other whorehouses in San Juan there was never any need for sailors to get on a plane to find a cheap Dominican whore.

Ten and six. Ten for the woman, 6 for the room. Or so I am reliably informed.

Is this NYT form going to be like the old Penthouse Forums? That feature was so popular that it spun off into its own separate magazine. You know, for the people who didn't look at the pictures but only read Penthouse for the stories.

I think keeping them confidential is absolutely the wrong approach. Strip the name and identifying info, sure. Make it anonymous.

But the stories that will come out seem like a surefire way to increase readership.

Added bonus: For the HR department, perhaps a source for hiring journalists.

Bay Area Guy said...

Dear NYT,

I was a little too tall, and coulda used a few pounds. I wore tight point pants, but they were hardly renown. This girl - she was a black haired beauty with big dark eyes. And points all her own sitting way up high. Way up firm and high, if you get my drift.

So one night, out past the cornfields where the woods got heavy. I took her out in the back seat of my '60 Chevy. I was working on mysteries, with nary a clue. But I was, indeed, working on my night moves. I was not trying to make some front page drive-in news. I was practicing the night moves in the summertime, oh, yes, in the sweet summertime.

So, I don't believe we were in love - oh no, far from it. And I certainly was not searching for some pie in the sky summit. I was just young and restless and bored - and I was living by the sword

So we'd steal away every chance we could. To the backroom, the alley, the trusty woods
I used her and she used me, but she expressed no care - mostly because she was getting her share.

And I continued to practice my night moves. I was trying to lose those awkward teenage blues. I was working out those night moves

Now, sometimes though, I do wonder, how we felt the lightning, yes, and waited on the thunder. So, in any event, I woke last night to the sound of thunder. How far off was this event? I just sat and wondered. I began to hum a song from nineteen eighty-two. Isn't it ironic how the night moves? I just didn't seem to have much to lose. I find it strange how the night moves. particularly with autumn closing in

So, to close, I would like to reiterate the importance of night moves. Yes, I will repeat it - night moves. I certainly remember those night moves. And I find it humorous, how I continue to remember the night moves I employed with that black-haired beauty. Yes, I remember, I remember, I remember, I remember (whoa, whoa, whoa). Now it was work requiring practice. Frankly, there was a lot of work and practice. Ahh, those night moves - in the summertime. I fondly recall them, Lord.

Sincerely,

Bay Area Guy - by way of Detroit.

Hahahahaha, right?

I didn't really drink or go to parties in high school, because that wasn't the lifestyle I wanted. I knew that going to house parties, people would drink and make out and possibly have sex and then fight about it or be too embarrassed to face so-and-so or whatever. Maybe the boys took advantage of drunk girls, but if that's what happened every week then it's what the girls wanted, because they went to the completely optional house parties.

Women are supposed to be equal to men, and I believe we are. But lately there is more and more of a narrative being built that we are hapless victims, and that seems like a huge slide backwards.

ALP said...

I would love to see a movement where all female candidates for anything important are queried like this: "Did you ever go on a date with a man, insist on him paying, you ordered the most expensive items on the menu - having already determined you will never see this man again?

Any female in a position with power over money/funds should be questioned as to any past use of her sexuality for personal financial gain.

PuertoRicoSpaceport.com said...

Coolest thing so far about the doctor so far?

Now she is going to drive from California to DC to testify. Since we can't expect her to drive more than 8 hours a day or so, including stops, it will take her at least 2-3 weeks.

CNN and MSNBC will have a 24/7 satellite image tracking her progress. Crowds or fascist women supporters in pussyhats will come out as she passes.

Busloads of reporters will follow her and pounce whenever she stops. She will always respond "No comment" in a demure way. Except when she says "No comment except....(Insert comments)"

You think the OJ chase was cool, this will be the coolest chase EVER!!!

Michael K,

Thanks for reminding me about delusional recovered memory. The other day Scott Adams did a whole podcast on recovered memory.

http://blog.dilbert.com/2018/09/20/episode-227-scott-adams-kavanaugh-healthcare-by-innovation/

One of the more spectacular cases he mentioned was the McMartin Pre-School case. I remember it from the time and remember how horrible it was. The charges were horrible if true. But they were so obviously untrue and preposterous that one wondered how anyone could report them with a straight face.

They had pre-school kids remembering underground caves at the school, being raped with knives and all sorts of other weird stuff. The McMartins' refusal to plead guilty was just taken as more proof of how guilty they were.

It was a horrible travesty of justice.

"The trial lasted seven years and cost $15 million,[42] the longest and most expensive criminal case in the history of the United States legal system, and ultimately resulted in no convictions."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McMartin_preschool_trial

And nothing at all happened to LA County DA Ira Kenneth Reiner who was responsible.

Michael, that was probably some of your tax dollars involved. I hope you thought you got good value.

I sat next to a reporter from the Louisville Courier-Journal at a dinner in 1990 in the midst of it all. I think I met her for the first time that evening. I don't know how the subject came up but I will never forget her saying that "It must be true. The newspapers would not be reporting all these stories if they weren't true." She was not some starry-eyed newbie j-school grad. She was probably in her mid-30s and had been at it a while. She really believed that.

Wherever she is now, she probably believes Ford too.

If you want to read up on repressed memories and other problems that humans have remembering past events google Elizabeth Loftus and read her scholarly studies.

It's stunning work on how events like "flashbulb memories" - memories of sudden events that we are sure happened - can be totally wrong.

There's a terrible case of an event in the Korean War - No Gung Ri massacre - where fleeing South Koreans were killed by US soldier in a terrible incident. The question is whether a handful of them were killed by panicking soldiers or hundreds murdered deliberately by US forces.

One of the witnesses - an American soldier - told the Associate Press that he personally shot dozens of Koreans. It turns out he wasn't even there. But even more remarkable is that several soldiers who WERE there said he was there with one soldier saying he was rescued by that person.

Don't you tell me to deny it; I've done wrong and I want to suffer for my sins. What I need is a good defense, 'cause I'm feelin' like a criminal. And I need to be redeemed to the one I've sinned against. Because he's all I ever knew of love.

Did you ever, as a teenager or younger man, behave toward women in ways you may now regret?

Yes, she said "Don't!!"....."Stop!!", but that soon segued into "Don't Stop!!", "Don't Stop!!".

Francisco D said...

"One of the more spectacular cases he mentioned was the McMartin Pre-School case."

The evidence in that case was absurdly weak. There was an issue with false memory that Elizabeth Loftus (cognitive psychologist at the U. of Washington) debunked. However, the bigger scandal was the social workers who encouraged children to make up fantastic stories.

Let's not forget the Amirault case in Massachusetts. Dorothy Leibowitz (WSJ) stayed with that case until they were finally freed from prison after being falsely accused, convicted and jailed.

Both cases speak to hysteria that put obviously innocent people in jail and ruined their lives. That hysteria is what the feminist left and Democrats are trying to gin up again. This issue is far more far reaching than the Kavanaugh appointment.

"Women, Tell Us About Your High School Experience.

Fill out this form, just in case you want to tell on yourself before anybody else does.

The NYT wants to hear from you about your high school experiences. Did you ever get shit-faced drunk on wine coolers and inadvertently suck a guy's cock that, in hindsight, you wish you hadn't? Did his friends start sniffing around talking to you at class, at lunch, hoping for a similar, repeat performance? Are you aware that certain states, like Maryland, have no statute of limitations, and that you may have been victimized by a heterosexist, privileged, white, male patriarchy? A Times editor - of similar chosen gender -may contact you with follow-up questions. No information you provide will be published without your permission. Unless, of course, it conveniently leaks out under certain exigent circumstances."

Big Mike said...

Did you ever, as a teenager or younger man, behave toward women in ways you may now regret?

Absolutely!

If so, how?

When my ex-girlfriend (she had broken off the relationship months before) turned what I thought was going to be a peck on the cheek into a French kiss, I should have dragged her into a bedroom, thrown her over my knees, yanked down her panties, and spanked her until her butt was cherry red. She was only doing it to be a c**k tease, and to try to mess up my relationship with my new girlfriend.

And how has that experience stayed with you over the years?

It combined with other experiences to convince me that women, with the exception of my wife, are congenital liars. Women since then have been at pains to make certain I do not forget.

(Yes, this really happened to me.)

I could just imagine one of the chans picking up on this, then there would be a mass of people creating fake emails and using VPNs to look like they're in DC or whatever city their target is in (just in case it logs ISPs, but I doubt it) and describing all sorts of youthful misdeeds by top politicians.

This seems like a wasted and pointless effort if they are actually trying to collect data. Maybe they are that dumb or maybe they have another reason for running this. The other reason isn't obvious to me, all I can think of is that they already have the next story with "confessions" written and want to make it look as though this was how they got them.

I see a lot of my feminist friends saying that men in this country are taught that they have the right to women's bodies, and I think that is so unfair to the average male. We ignore the full humanity of young men, and I don't think it helps young women to think men are feelingless predators.

Yeah, Francisco I remember the Amiraults. Nobody else does because other than Dorothy rabinowitz pretty much nobody reported on them.

One thing I remember is that they were offered probation,commutation or some sort of release from prison if they would just confess. Their steadfast refusal to do so was reported as them being in denial and further proof of guilt.

Nothing hapened to Martha Coakly, the DA. Other than using the case to rise to state AG. That missy be the greatest tragedy in this Kafkaesque farce.

Shame on her.

And shame on all the others who persecuted (not a typo) similar cases in the great hysteria of the late 80s early 90s

Of course, she followed that up by advising me that I should never do that again. I'm thinking "Shit!! What next!?!? Screaming rape??" I immediately took her home, and never communicated with her again.

The locker room scuttlebutt indicated that she had pulled that stunt before.

Terrific post.

But that makes too much sense and we're not allowed to be sensible in these times. It's choose up sides - one all good vs. one all bad - and just go at it.

Of course as Judge pointed out in his book, young men (and women) were taught about the body parts and not about the people with them. Don't be surprised if people taught like this do terrible things. They have moral agency, yes; and we hold them accountable, yes; but are we really really shocked at their behavior?

Public high school, late 70s-early 80s, Ann Arbor. I would say the vast majority of the guys graduated virgins. But nearly all of them also believed that 95 percent of the class were having sex all the time.

One thing that became clear in time though was that the good and nice boys typically got nowhere with the girls. The bad boys were always popular though. Eventually it sank in that the idea of girls being innocent and wanting boys who respected them was BS.

All these women shouting now about how Sisterhood Is Powerful and Men are Pigs, fine, fine, fine. But do they have any kind of clue? About how men are frankly terrified? Wanting to step up and do the right thing but needing some heroes to show them the way?

I could go on but I think the point right here is, all the Feminist claptrap is (purposely) designed to ignore the M-F complexity and just sell a simplistic F solution.

But most of us were lost socially and didn't know what the hell was going on or what to do. Not even start a conversation with a girl much less go beyond that. Maybe the Prep schools with the rich kids and privilege were different.

Dear NYT,

I am a 47-year old professional woman. I studied anthropology at Bryn Mawr University. I obtained an MBA at Brown. Currently, I am the program director/congressional liaison at Media Matters in Wash DC.

Growing up in Washington DC, (Sidwell Friends ' 89), I fully recognized at an early age the white priviliege bestowed on me based on my white heritage, mostly through my patriarchal father (Harvard, 63', Georgetown Law, 66'). After adopting two orphans from Botswana, my "partner" and I have done our best to instill in our children a critical, somehat jaundiced view of America, due to its history of slavery, racism and misogyny.

In high school, I tried to resist the Reagan agenda by organizing an exchange dance with Dunbar, a predominantly Afro-American school outside of Baltimore. On purely a race and class basis, I thought it I mportant to dance with those less fortunate boys who have historically suffered oppression. I put on my boogie shoes, and looked forward to the mixer.

Well, one young black man, Cory, asked me to dance to Berlin's "Take My Breath Away" from the jingoistic Top Gun soundtrack. As he held me close, swaying in rhythm, Cory gyrated his private parts into mine. I began to feel a stirring sensation in my loins. He then reached up with his right hand and stroked my left breast. However, at no time did he ask for or receive my permission to touch me in this manner. Despite the pleasant sensation I was experiencing, I sharply scolded him about the illegality of non-consensual sexual touching, which in many circumstances can become a precursor to rape. His response to me was shocking - he called me a "crazy white bitch," and abruptly broke away from our otherwise sensual slow-dance, moments before the haunting ballad had even ended.

I never told anyone about this, but I felt humiliated and victimized by this black man's sexual aggression. He should not have stopped touching my breast without asking me. I still feel violated.

I discovered at some point that a lot of women get faked out if you skip second base and go to third instead, which was, of course, a precursor for a home run. This seems to be esp a problem with really big breasted woman, who seem to think out of sight (below those huge breasts), out of mind. I think that it was because so many guys fixate on their breasts. Also worked some times with smaller women or women with skinnier asses, where if they are clothed right, you can reach around their derrières to get where you want to get. Amazed though that this could work with 40 year olds.

Also, I will admit to trying long enough with some women that they just gave in. The good thing there is that they tend to remove their own pants, which essentially can be read as consent. None of these situations, of course, in the last 19 years,after getting with the woman now running my life.

Dear NYT/Penthouse Forum: When I was 12, I had a 15 year old babysitter who, after putting my younger siblings to bed, would insist on wrestling with me on the floor. She was overweight for her age, and I was small for my age, thus she easily pinned me down pretty quickly. The match was over (she would let me up) if I grabbed her rather large breasts that dangled in my face. We would rest for a few minutes and then have another match. My regret is that I didn't have any hair on my balls yet and didn't understand, but it was pretty clear to me later what she wanted from me was what the boys her own age wouldn't give her because of her weight. I'm deeply sorry I didn't know how to really make her happy and instead molested her by grabbing her breasts.
