Some woman just accused Michael Douglas of jerking off in front of her, 32 years ago. I find this woman disgusting. Nothing but bad press for Michael Douglas can come from this. She must be a spiteful woman. Her accusation also is bothersome, because some people will think this was a good thing she did. To me, those people are doing a disservice to real problems with harassment.

Was she sitting in front of a television set when he did this? I believe it was an actual movie clip maybe he was blackmailed into doing.

What do you consider as "real" harassment problems? Or is it just the time span you criticize?

I recently haven´t had to deal with harassment, but it simply bothered me to receive from the male part of a couple which I know from walking my dog, too "personal" WhatsApp messages. As that guy doesn´t have any power to influence my life, it was simple to stop him by sending those messages forward to his wife, lol. But if that woman was an actress, and given the power of influence Michael Douglas had 32 years ago, I consider this a more serious matter and yes, "real" harassment.

Indeed, and so does for example your former prime minister, Paul Martin: http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/paul-martin-accuses-residential-schools-of-cultural-genocide-1.1335199.

Killing someone isn´t necessarily a criteria for genocide according to Article II e of the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide: http://www.preventgenocide.org/genocide/officialtext-printerfriendly.htm

"Article II: In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:

(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
