    I guess context is everything...if it was in work I might have thought something of it, but it was on social occasions, so it didn't bother me.
    Strange.

    You want to try and divert attention from this with whataboutery.
    Your entire point is whataboutery. "What about Barry Walsh and Michael Golgan?!"

    As we speak Hollywood and Twitter are GUSHING over 'film stars don't die in Liverpool' a heart warming tale detailing the life of notorious child molester Gloria Graham who famously raped her 12 year old son in law. But of course she's a feminist heroine. In short if you are looking for consistency in this issue, it won't be found.

    No, my point was to point out that Porter has been accused of sexual harrassment

    And then to say that the "silence" (not actually silence if it's reported in the biggest newspaper in the country) was notable.

    To be honest, I’m surprised by the Times’s headline. For me, ‘sex pest’ can imply relatively minor behaviour, like inappropriate jokes or staring.

    What Porter is being accused of is much more serious.

    As opposed to those on the other side who are happy to revel in their inconsistency?

    Yes. That’s not whataboutery. I referred to Colgan and Walsh for comparison
