Beauvoir being on that list is especially surprising, but not excessively so considering how many prominent French women have come out to denounce MeToo as a witch hunt.

France has a lot more in common with loving Russia in that respect than most other western countries.

Isn’t this at least somewhat related to the relatively large influx of white nationalism into France after World War II?

It was there before WWII. The dynamics of France and Germany before (and during) WWII have become more distorted in recent years. In actuality, much of France and Germany were united in Anglophobia, antisemitism and Russophobia throughout the whole era.

The Sorrow and the Pity (1969) covers some of this and brings about many disturbing topics that no modern war films touch on much.

I remember being a really devout Hakim Bey fanatic in college because I was really into anarchist poetry and then someone on Facebook was like “please don’t stan a Pedo” and I got very upset, first at him for attacking my hero, and then at Hakim Bey for arguing that, in an advanced society, emotional and sexual relationships with children might not necessarily be predatory. It was a pretty big blow but at least I started doing research on people before I bought their books anymore!

It's unsurprising about Beauvoir since she herself had relationships with teenagers as an adult woman, together with Jean-Paul Sartre.

Obviously 12 year olds can't consent to sexual relationships, but if I was 15 and had a threeway with Beauvoir and Sartre I would never shut up about it.

It's always so frustrating that people think their experience is universal. I'm sure he's told that story to friends and they nodded along so he's fine with sharing it publicly because hey we all do it right?

I can see someone essentially getting goatse'd except instead of goatse it's child sexual abuse. There are broken, sick people on the internet who would get a kick out of doing that. Hell, didn't some FYAD folks get banned for buying anime CSA "flags" or whatever? What I can't see is accidentally finding some child porn and continuing to view it or maybe continue looking at the same site; that's a crime, and it doesn't really matter if you were specifically looking for child sexual abuse images in the first place.

I would assume so, yes. Just to be clear: I agree with you and I don't for a second believe there are a significant number of people being prosecuted for accidentally accessing a CSA image. For one thing, there are frequently busts based on computers being searched for unrelated matters, and if all it took to be found and convicted was accidentally accessing one image, these perverts would not be able to accumulate the hundreds of images they frequently have.

I imagine, at most, the edge cases are people looking for "barely legal" or "teen" content and then ending up on the wrong side of the line, and it's really pretty difficult to say that's a complete accident.

On the other hand, there have been cases of authors getting charged with creating child pornography for including a scene depicting the sexual abuse of a minor in a work of fiction (and not, like, a piece of erotica focused on that specifically), so who knows what an overzealous prosecutor might attempt? Is Game of Thrones (the novel) child pornography because Danaerys gets raped?

Megyn Kelly and 3 other Fox News employees, who were terrorized by Ailes and other male anchors like Oreilly, watched Bombshell and discussed it in a group interview.

Turns out film was very accurate in its portrayal of Ailes and what a monster he and the people around him were and how toxic the environment was.

Yeah, Roger Ailes was a terrible human being and deserved everything bad that happened to him and more, but (maybe to a slightly lesser extent) Megyn Kelly is a hateful and racist person as well.

The French are so weird because they’re liberal when it comes to sex and sexuality but despite their prominent tradition of public philosophical debate they’re almost entirely unreflective when it comes to power relations and sex. See also the MeToo movement being actively resisted by both prominent men and women in France.

You should see how it goes re: race. In the same breath as the riots for freedom and bread in the French revolution, there were riots about the price of sugar, which shot up only due to the beginnings of the Haitian revolution.

Which isn't too say that the French aren't more liberal towards race than say America, but there are other things even today like the French banks of Africa.

Yeah as much as Hollywood seems to aim for certain demographics I have no idea what audience they were chasing with Bombshell.

It's a movie I'm sure people will check out when it hits steaming but there was zero box office potential.
