    In the years after he registered as a sex offender, Epstein was rarely alone. He was often accompanied by attractive young women in their late teens or 20s.

    Come on now, let’s be real, a lot of those were underage.

      He wasn’t murdered he was framed in a murder suicide theirs a difference. One tries to make the victim look like they died of suicide while he was murdered the other is just plain murder.

    All I can say is, I’m glad Jeff Epstein is dead and some of those who helped promulgate his sickness are in jail also. Far too many men get away with the abuse of women in this society. These men are all mentally ill, and they all need to be jailed for the remainder of their lifetimes.

      I apologize, because this kind of sounds like a “not all men” comment, but I promise it’s not meant to be. Unfortunately abuse is not just limited to being perpetrated by men, if I recall correctly Epstein famously had a female accomplice, who was apprehended and is serving time. Anyone perpetuating abuse is despicable and deserves our hate. I guess that goes without saying, however your use of “men” just stuck out in my mind and I wanted to make sure Ghislaine Maxwell and her ilk also get an equal amount of outrage directed at them.

      Fuck all abusers and facilitators.

          I don’t know if I’d call 20 years a slap on the wrist, it is a significant chunk of time, but it is no where near enough for the shit they did. When I went to Wikipedia to double check my info and saw that was the sentence I was appalled that was all she got. They do all deserve a life sentence for what they did.

            You’re correct. My use of the phrase wasn’t really appropriate.

      • Yeah this is one of the rare cases where it’s absolutely fair to point out because it was an entire network with people from both genders participating or complicit in some way! We aren’t discussing statistics, women were involved in these atrocities so it really would make more sense to be inclusive of all the abusers

        Yes he did have a female accomplice who I’m happy to say also went to jail. But how often do you hear of women abusing men? I know it goes on, and one problem with any kind of abuse is under reporting by people who are embarrassed and ashamed.

        Still from what I’ve read the greater number of perpetrators is men, just look at all those they just busted for sending solicitations to young girls for sex (I think it was group of 10 or 20 men). None of them gay - all of them straight men with girlfriends or married.

        That’s who my scorn is heaped upon and always will be. The ones who really commit such atrocities with no concern for the victims.

            No thanks. I can do much better. You’ll have to learn to fuck yourself - or you’ll have to be a rape victim to have any hope of a sex life. Happy holidays!

              I didn’t say “fuck you”. I said fuck off. But apparently a rape enabler like yourself can only experience life through transactional sex acts that you have a ranking system for.

              So I’ll just state plainly, you are wrong about everything you think about sexuality, sex crimes, and feminism.

                Transactional sex acts, hell yeah. I’d pay a dollar for that! And just to state plainly, you are a mom-fucking moron so I don’t give TWO fucks about you’re opinions, ya stupid worthless prick.

      Saying the obvious is not brave. I have not heard of one person legitimately praising Epstein. What would be brave is also talking about the female predators in schools and homes that never get jailed, so we can talk about equality for both males and females. Most boys grow up into men and never speak, and women predators love to take advantage of it. Heard of Ghislaine Maxwell, or is it just going to be about feminist virtue signalling?
