I don't care what you do in the privacy of your own home. But I'd object if you made or edited or distributed or promoted a pornographic video that included clips of these women and girls being touched. Just as I would for any other video that's meant to focus on how their bodies were touched or otherwise used, unless you've gotten their permission to do so. Because that's no longer just you in your basement - it's affecting other people.

And others are saying, "no, that's not what really happened." And without videos or photos, how do we know?
I have no problem with scrutinizing any video of the specific women who have chosen to speak out. Feel free to point me towards any video that shows how Flores or one of the other women who have spoken out was touched. I have no problem at all with that, since they've chosen to speak publicly about these experiences.
