Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Influential open source advocate Richard M. Stallman has resigned from the presidency of the Free Software Foundation and an MIT position after making comments on an MIT mailing list about Jeffrey Epstein. Defending the late MIT computer scientist Marvin Minsky from an allegation of rape involving a 17-year-old girl, Stallman wrote that it should not be called "sexual assault" if the minor is presented as "entirely willing."

In a 2016 deposition, Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre said she was directed to have sex with Minsky when he visited Epstein's compound in the US Virgin Islands. At the time she was 17 and Minsky was 73.

Because 21st century American society has decided that it is much better to be able to point a finger and have someone to blame than it is to consider that person's contributions to society. What the Free Software Foundation ACTUALLY DOES is not important to what one guy's opinions are. He's not testifying in a court. He's not victim shaming. He's saying what he thinks happened. And what he thinks happened is just as valid as what anyone else who wasn't there think. I could say most likely what happened is they were all aliens doing tests with human subjects to find out if we are good candidates for the Solar System Olympics...and it's just as valid as what he said. The only difference is one is more likely to have occurred over the other.

Go after the --------- who committed the crimes, not the people who have an opinion. This century is going to go down as a history lesson for our descendants on how not to live together in a society, so I guess the craptastic society we live in today has at least some purpose.
