Some people I just... ugh
Are female producers or casting directors not at liberty to proposition male actors either? I'm skepical this is really a 'patriarchy' thing, it's just a power-in-general thing.

IDK if Trump's ever sexually assaulted someone, but now we have Harvey actually caught who many of the actors/actresses preaching about politics wherever they could for the past year or so protected with their silence for years and years just to help their careers . As someone really sick of the very forced mixing of entertainment and politics in recent times, this is a perfect situation TBH .

Are women not "at liberty" to rape men either? Yes, they are. And yet 99% of rapes are commited by men.

How often do we hear about female-on-male domestic violence? Almost never, and yet it's a lot closer to 50-50 than society norms would indicate.


You do have a point there. A few weeks ago I read an article about school teachers and sexual misconduct. Interestingly, when police profile photos were taken, many of the female teachers were smiling. Further, while both genders engaged in similar crimes, the men were charged with felony rape while the women were generally charged with misdemeanor misconduct. Naturally, this skews the crime stats.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

No way that's the only reason why the percentage is like that. It's way easier to coerce someone with weapons or drugs than just with mere physical strength.

Because it's emasculating. If society wasn't sexist then that wouldn't happen. And I really, really doubt it's close to 50-50 despite the stigma associated with female-on-male domestic violence.

Trolls at 4chan are saying that Fappening (famous leak of nude photos of Hollywood actresses) actually originated from stolen Weinstein phone and were part of their "auditions".

Bob Weinstein Gets Emotional on "Depraved" Harvey, Saving the Company and His "Waking Nightmare" (Exclusive) | Hollywood Reporter

Quote:
The Weinstein Co. exec insists he had no idea about "the type of predator that he was" and is sickened by Harvey’s seeming lack of remorse. "I want him to get the justice that he deserves."
I just don't believe a word from this guy
Bob leaked the news and made Harvey now a pariah, and now he has all the power. Why not?

I guess the deeper problem is a level of acceptance of this behavior from society. After all, President Trump was elected despite having bragged about groping women.

Women are now coming out speaking about it. I don't think the media was interested before.

They're both dogs so now what.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.
