What part of "sexual harassment" does she not understand? She may appreciate being groped or having "kisses stolen", but I'm pretty sure a vast majority of us don't.

“Rape is a crime, but trying to seduce someone, even persistently or cack-handedly, is not – nor is men being gentlemanly a macho attack,” said the letter published in the newspaper Le Monde.
You know, I agree that seduction, pursuing a woman and being gentlemanly are not crimes. They're things I personally find highly attractive, even a turn-on. In the right circumstances, and having shown a mutual interest in the guy. That's where these women seem to be getting tripped up in their eagerness to appear urbane and chic.

We're not talking about some guy putting the moves on a woman where there's an obvious mutual attraction, where she's non-verbally consented to being pursued. Not fucked -- pursued. We're not talking about harmless flirting between friends over the coffee pot, where they both know that it's not going go to anywhere but still want to share a light moment. We're not talking about a brief touch where the electricity is palpable and both parties feel it. We've all been there. We know what it's like and we know when it isn't happening.

We're talking about women being sexually harassed, assaulted, raped, followed, stalked, touched, propositioned, pursued and worse by men who were given absolutely zero verbal or non-verbal cues that the woman was interested. They just saw a woman, assumed she was DTF because every woman is nothing but three holes and a pulse, and went to town.

Reducing those experiences to hating sex, hating men or victims being so utterly stupid that they must just be unable to tell the difference between an awkward attempt at flirting and being raped is neither chic nor urbane.

Fuck them.

James Franco Responds To Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Quote:
James Franco said that recent allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against him are “not accurate.”

“I haven’t read [the accusations.] I’ve heard about them,” Franco said Tuesday night during an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” “The things that I heard that were on Twitter are not accurate but I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn’t have a voice for so long. So I don’t want to ... shut them down in any way.”

Kentucky Speaker of the House Jeff Hoover resigns in fiery speech after being accused of sexual harassment.

Crikey! According to the Washington Post,
Quote:
“What’s the one thing you’re most ashamed of that you have done in the past five years?” Hoover asked the chamber. “What if you woke up one morning and that one thing that you’re sitting there thinking about was on the front page of every newspaper in this state?”

His voice quavered as he explained how the scandal had affected him and his family, saying that he had lost 33 pounds in four weeks because he couldn’t eat.

“I laid on my couch day after day after day in the fetal position,” he said. “I got down on the floor when no one was at home, crying uncontrollably and screaming out to almighty God to help me through this situation and to help my family and my daughters. I went into depression. I went into isolation.”
Certainly sounds as if he needs to take some time away from politics to deal with his health.

I love these guys who in one breath are so adamant and confident that what they did was no big deal and in the next claim that the mere fact people found out about it sent them into this full-blown nervous breakdown crisis that they demand sympathy for.

No excuse for that what did, consensual explicit texting to a female subordinate, but Hoover was definitely targeted by the Governor who did not approve of his willingness to cross the aisle, plus depression and anxiety is nothing to joke or make fun of. We have already had one legislature blow his brains out because of an unsubstantiated claim against him.

Eliza Dushku Claims True Lies Stunt Coordinator Molested Her When She Was 12 - Vulture
Quote:
Adding her voice to the hundreds of women speaking out about Hollywood’s sexual harassment and assault epidemic as part of the #MeToo movement, Eliza Dushku — perhaps best know for her roles in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Tru Calling — is alleging a veteran stunt coordinator sexually molested her when she was 12. Writing a detailed post on her Facebook page, Dusku claims that Joel Kramer, who’s worked in the industry for dozens of years, molested her while they worked together on the 1994 action film True Lies — during which time he slowly built up the trust of Kramer and her parents before the assault occurred. Specifically, he molested her in his Miami hotel room, after suggesting to her parents that he take her swimming at the stunt crew’s private pool and buy her sushi for the first time:

James Cameron's reply. Though I wish he wouldn't have said "as having daughters now"...shouldn't take having a daugther to want to protect girls/women from harassment and abuse.

Photographers Mario Testino, Bruce Weber Accused of Sexual Misconduct

Quote:
Fifteen current and former male models have alleged that Weber sexually exploited them during photo shoots, allegedly pressuring them into unnecessary nudity and sexual acts. Several models claim Weber had them touch themselves and then guided their hands with his own. Testino is facing similar accusations from 13 male assistants and models, who allege he made sexual advances that included groping and masturbation.

Arnold Schwarzenegger went around grabbing James Cameron’s wife Linda Hamilton by the breasts as “a joke” on the set on T2. He even did it to her twin sister once, mistaking her for Linda. Forgive me if I have trouble believing Cameron would have done anyth8ng to protect women or girls on his set.

Have to wonder what kinds of POS people [at the top, where they could do something] would let someone get away with victimizing children. What kind of culture puts the 'art' of a movie ahead of basic good behavior. Because this isn't the first time a child was hurt like this.

Obviously, people who need their jobs and think they'd be the only ones to say something might not, but the Director? The Producers? Seriously, not one of these thought that this was fucking WRONG?

I'm glad she's speaking out, I just hope all these people speaking out manage to make this toxic culture change.

As someone who has suffered from clinical depression for many years -- though it's now well-controlled by medication -- I absolutely sympathise with what Hoover must be going through.

However, I have no hesitation in saying, based on my own experience, he seems to have returned to work far too early, and he should be concentrating on recovering his health, for his own sake, and also for the sake of his family and his constituents,

I’ve been waiting for this particular shoe to drop.

#1
Actor and comedian Aziz Ansari is being accused of sexual assault

#2
Twitter

Aziz said nothing during Louis CK’s exposure, which is significant because they are both managed by David Becky. CK’s victims claimed that Becky bullied and sabotaged them on his client’s behalf, but Louis CK gave Becky cover in his “apology” letter and Becky himself played the “I’m sorry they felt that way” game.

So I figured this one was coming.

Is it just me, or is the whole hollywood #timesup seem to be pushing towards the realm of politically correct that the far right wing successfully made into a negative trait and consequently helped Trump become POTUS because people cheered him on for 'speaking his mind'?

Pesky politically correct women and their desire not to be harassed. It’s their fault Trump got elected.

It is politically correct for women who have been raped/harassed to speak up? My complaint about it is that so far I haven't seen any of the antagonists, even in the worst cases such as rape of minors, be charged with a crime.

That this all may be construed as politically correct by Trumpers doesn't surprise me. Why would it? They're not known as people who support anything other than white supremacy, of which (in case you hadn't noticed) the situation of white males in power feeling free to harass and rape those at a lower level than themselves can be seen as a symptom. It's also not surprising to me in the least as there is more than a huge vein of misogyny in Trump support.

So...I guess victims should just shut up so that Trump doesn't gain more support, is that it? Whatever.
