• @potatochip I will just say in general, just because anyone invites you somewhere means that you go? No way! They had a choice… if they just use their common sense then they would know that kind of scenario it is. If they were minors I can understand but they are all at least of legal age so it is not illegal but yes, it is not morally right at all. I don’t condone their behavior but they are old enough to know what they are getting themselves into. My late parents always taught me that. Then told my brothers that too. My point is, regardless of gender, just because anyone tells you to do something or go anywhere, does not mean you just go. If they had a gun to your head then that is a different story.. These guys are sick so they should have stayed away from them.
  • @coralie They are so lovable at this age though. Watching them discover the world is so fun. I do enjoy the humor of these tantrums sometimes. In some of the mom's group, a fun thread would be, "Why is my toddler crying?" Here are some examples: "I peeled his banana for him because he asked me to" "Because there wasn’t any room for her to sit on the toilet seat where I was sitting" "Because I wouldn’t let him put cream cheese on his peni$. (I explained cream cheese is for our bagels, not our peni$)"
  • @coralie Yep! That's a good example with the Japanese culture. My goal is to teach my sons not to be like these guys and respect women. It is my duty as a mother not to continue this chauvinistic/"traditional" BS.
  • @m0m0 I can't control anyone's actions but I can control mine. If I don't want to rob someone, I don't rob them. No one can force me to rob them. If I don't want to rape someone, I don't rape them. No one can force me to rape. Those are inherent moral values. No one asks to be victimized. We are asking these men to take ownership of their actions and stop being predators.
  • @potatochip thank you for educating everyone on this topic about women equality. It's never MEN who should do so and so, but WOMEN who should do so and so. Such BS. As if men dunno wtb they're doing.
  • @potatochip you logic isn't exactly realistic. based on what you logic, we could just wearing $$ on our heads and expect to be safe b/c nobody in their right and conscious minds would rob us.
  • My reply didn't post, so I edited in case some words triggered sensors. My apologies if it double posted. @hetieshou The girls get invited to a party. What do you think the invite said? "You and 79 other barely legal girls will be in a room with two 30+ year old men. And your phone will be confiscated". Nah... Anytime the phrase "they should have" is used in scenarios like this, it is taking the responsibility away from the perpetrator. "They should have known...", "they should have not been drunk...", "they should have not dressed that way..", etc. That is the victim blaming/[email protected] culture the world lives in. It should be "These grown, powerful men shouldn't set up immature, validation seeking girls to [email protected] prey on them." Slightly off topic, but you all should watch the documentary "Childhood 2.0“ on YouTube which talks about the dangers of social media for kids. I am only about a third of the way through because I need to take a break. The horrors are so scary. But in relation to this topic, those who live social media seek out "likes". It starts as a child. Young girls and women spend lots of time editing, photoshopping, applying the right filter to pictures of themselves in order to post them. They get depressed or anxious if they don't have a lot of "likes" or fewer than others. They monitor their numbers, even asking friends to boost up their score. They have to post more and more revealing pictures to get "likes". It's an addictive and toxic cycle. These are the type of girls, so called "influencers", that these men are preying on. It's extra sick if you think about it.

  • @potatochip No I am not blaming them but just want to be fair as those girls are not little kids. They should know these men are creepy jerks but yet they still come. These men have motives but so do these girls.
  • @coralie Threenagers (3 year olds) were worse for me. But overall, it's not that terrible. I miss that cute age.
  • @hetieshou You are blaming the victim. Agreeing to attend a party doesn't mean one consents to being groped or anything else. These men think they are entitled to women's bodies because they are famous and the women should be falling all over themselves to be in their presence.
  • @potatochip My thoughts exactly too after I read this article. They enjoy preying on such girls...
  • Predators. And their definition of "traditional" sounds synonymous with "abuser".
  • @hetieshou I am not blaming him, he is just the black light that shows what can’t be seen with the naked eye. It is still one’s choice to support him or not. I wouldn’t say it is sad that a relationship is ruined by politics or religion. These are core values. What is sad is that they weren’t discussed before one commits. But life is too short to live unhappily. People do change and evolve. If your values no longer align, if you are no longer in love, you each deserve to find your own happiness without judgement.
  • @potatochip I got to say even if people don’t like Trump, you can’t blame it all on him. If couples cannot work out their differences then they just cannot. It is sad if you let politics, religion or anything ruin your life and marriage.
  • @coralie Trump really revealed people's deep seeded hate and tested their moral compasses. It is hard to spend your life together when base values do not align. Lucky for those dating, they have a litmus test. Us established folks have a harder time sorting things out.
  • Ok, finished now. Jonathan was good as deranged. I like Moon as an actress, but her Rachel character didn't quite seem suited for her. I wonder if she and Crystal had switched, perhaps she would have been better as hacker Ana. Crystal doesn't have the versatility to play Ana. The character can be very likeable except for the contrived drunk sleeping in someone else's bed part. I like Rosina and her emotional scenes were good. The character unfortunately didn't have much to do, but I agree that she should stop having her world revolve around Sam Sir and find her own path. If there were a sequel, I am most interested in her, but there really isn't much substance for a sequel. Joman is a good actress, but the lawyer scenes were kinda boring. I like to see her in some thing else.
  • I haven't read the article or other replies yet because I still have about 3 more episodes to go. Based on the title of this article, I have to scoff a bit. I like Ruco, but this series was nothing special or memorable. There's not enough action. There's no humor. No romance. No great brotherhood. And the cases are dull. I can't stand watching Jonathan and Moon sit around, twirling their mustaches, and explain their evil doings to each other. It insults the audience's intelligence. Their story could have been touching, but they have limited chemistry. Moon's last scene was good, but she is an overall miscast for this role. Jonathan played that emotional scene well, but he doesn't fit the cold blooded killer/brilliant hacker role either. And could they be tried twice for the same crime? The only slightly interesting thing was seeing the minor cop roles drive some of the smaller cases. I was hoping to spot some upcoming talent. I am not sure I saw any but at least they attempted.
  • 3-4 months in China? I hope she is able to visit Hong Kong frequently or her MIL brings the baby to China. The 3-6 months of baby age is such a sweet, happy time that I would hate to miss. Nothing like holding your baby at that age.
