petite610/19/17 08:06 PM

amandajaye10/19/17 03:10 PM

x*My mistake, it was the Emancipation Proclamation. Amendment 13 came after the war. NT
amandajaye10/19/17 05:43 PM

x*I find it unbelievable that we are still talking about what the victim could have done to prevented the abuse. NT
amandajaye10/19/17 10:19 AM
x*The only sense in which I think victims might be somewhat responsible is in not reporting abuse and not acting on it at the time.
Beard10/19/17 12:08 PM
x*I think that's part of the abuse. It's the control the abuser has over the victim that the real the motivator (not how they dress/act). NT
amandajaye10/19/17 12:27 PM
x*No, it's not how they dress or act, except in not acting to stop it. There is a psychological control involved, often a superiority in position

cantgetenough10/19/17 12:41 PM

Mako10/18/17 02:55 PM
x*"does not have any personal knowledge of Ms. Veselnitskaya's travel," so again what is the point here? NT
petite610/18/17 02:57 PM
x*The point is I'm not wrong like you said. I guess another point is politicians' memories seem to fail when negative information comes out. NT
Mako10/18/17 03:04 PM
x*so you're adding about memory when she's clearly stating she has not dealt personally with this woman's travel? NT
petite610/18/17 03:36 PM

petite610/18/17 04:26 PM
x*What are you talking about? I said nothing about exaggeration of anything. NT

AskMedia10/18/17 02:21 PM
x*soooo glad you said this and what specific legal charge would that be? Barro made a great point, you know something is political
petite610/18/17 02:45 PM

petite610/18/17 02:08 PM
