Two More Women Accuse Neil deGrasse Tyson of Sexual Misconduct
Patheos ^ | November 29, 2018 | David G. McAfee

Posted on 11/29/2018 2:33:11 PM PST by sitetest

Two more women, including a fellow astronomer, say Neil deGrasse Tyson is guilty of inappropriate sexual conduct. Dr. Katelyn N. Allers, Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Bucknell University, told me that she was “felt up” by Tyson at an after-party following a meeting of the American Astronomical Society (AAS) in 2009. AAS didn’t have a mechanism for reporting sexual harassment at the time, but Dr. Allers says she probably would report the incident if it had happened today.

--- snip --

Dr. Allers didn’t feel like she was in danger during her encounter with Tyson, but she did describe it as “uncomfortable and creepy.” That interaction also made her think twice about allegations brought by Tchiya Amet, a musician who says Tyson raped her in his apartment when they were grad students together.

It’s global warming, I tell ya. I really enjoyed his work, until he became another political hack. That being said, if he’s innocent of these accusations, he should be left alone.

Give me a break, The guy is an Astronomer. He was obviously searching for a Black Hole to send his Probe.

I actually knew him well back in the 90s. Very humble, well-mannered, nice guy, with a very good sense of humor. But this of course doesn’t mean he didn’t do anything at a party while probably drinking. The woman could also have been encouraging him, at least at some point.

Yo Ty,

“Let’s go outside and look at Uranus”

Is never a good pickup line.

SO happy to hear this; he’s such a fraud.

I just read today that Matt Lauer is having a VERY hard time being unemployed, and his ‘estranged wife’ won’t even talk to him (while she makes a big cash grab via their divorce), unless it’s about something to do with their children.

How the mighty have fallen! Loving it! :)
