That man has the largest penis I have ever seen. I actually don't even know if he has mumps, forgot to look. I was distracted - by the largest penis I have ever seen


I'm glad the Louis CK stuff is finally out with names and all. It was aggravating watching him still dismiss it as rumors when there was so much smoke. It is funny that only a few months ago Tig Notaro sent him that public message to address it all.

One of the more disturbing reoccurring stories is that of these attractive foreign models that barely speak english going to meetings. So many of them tell the same story. They enter a hotel room and see a large figure appear from a dark corner wearing only a bathrobe. The figure is that of Harvey Weinstein and he's there to help them rehearse sex scenes. Some of the women have described him as an anthropomorphized pig.

I already have a lot of cynicism but hundreds of new revelations make me wonder if every...single...woman in major films has been seriously abused.

Has anyone heard much lately about Robert De Niro frequenting underage prostitution dens in Europe? It's one story I keep seeing online but never on TV/print media.

Also, Bill O'Reilly paid $32,000,000 USD to silence Lis Wiehl. One wonders what transpired there.


If Jack Chick was still alive he'd have so very much material right now.

Connecting the dots I suspected this would be revealed but I didn't want to throw a name out there (even if Sheen is highly unliked). If I had to bet $$$ I'd say this was going on during that film called Lucas. Jeremy Piven was also in that one.

The thing I keep coming back to is how there are so many amazing actresses who just completely drop off the radar and you end up thinking years later, "What happened to her? Why hasn't she been in any good movies lately" and then all this comes out and you have the answers.

I don't think it's helping to fall into the trap that women can't or don't do this stuff too though. It just makes the women who do feel like they're untouchable because nobody would believe other women or men coming forward about them. I've been abused by women who had power over me, it probably happens less as a de facto function of more men being in power but absolutely not because women are inherently less scummy than men.

ask him how he'd feel if it was his boss, and if he felt that if he did "get the gently caress up and move" he'd destroy his career. like, it's not just "some rear end in a top hat on the train" doing this, it's someone who is either a direct superior or someone who is well respected and has a lot of power in the field that all of the people involved are in.

and then if he continues to say dumb poo poo just drop him like a hot, masturbating rock.

ANIME IS FOR ADULTS


This past month has made me really rethink my rule of liking actors for their roles and not caring about their crazy real life antics. It was one thing when it was liking Tom Cruise and not caring about his Scientology stuff. I didn't even care about all of the cheating and drug abuse and honestly, even domestic abuse. Those things happen in the real non-Hollywood world too and I'm not going to stop liking the old Pirates of the Caribbean movies because Johnny Depp beat his wife 5 years later. But I do think a line has to be drawn for what appears to be a systemic abuse of power by producers and lead actors to sexually abuse young actresses. I mean this poo poo has to be like cockroaches. There's probably thousands of more stories that we haven't heard yet or never will hear about, and it's probably gone back a very long time.

One thing that stopped Crews from punching him was how it would have been reported in the media.

I think one of his tweets said something close to "240 pound black man beats down Hollywood honcho."

Dobutful, unless the whole Hollywood system changes.

Many people get selected to work in a movie depending on how hot they are or who they know. Not to mention what they are willing to endure to get the job: work ungodly hours, do unsafe stunts, get almost no pay. All for the chance to reach super-stardom and now be the one who can dictate the terms to others.

And it's also not limited to women: see what Terry Crews had done to him, what Corey Feldman has been saying for years, and the whole Kevin Spacey affair.

Quoting because this was basically what I was going to say. I hope this leads to not only more women feeling empowered to speak out, but men as well, they arguably have even more a stigma talking about abuses and not being taken seriously.

I'm just glad this poo poo is finally starting to come out. So many of these people were already known creeps, but kept skating past any repercussions.

One thing I worry about is the inevitable first false accusation, as it will start casting doubt on every accuser, and in some of these cases there is literally no way to "prove" that the incident took place (eg when someone is dead, as with Corey Haim). We try to live by "innocent until proven guilty" but when it comes to things like this, we (myself very much included) tend to just automatically believe everyone who comes forward. But it's naive in the extreme to think there just won't be false accusations.

Brace yourself for backlash in general. Someone will get hit by this that the general public really likes, and can't accept the accusations against. At that point false accussation wont matter. There is going to be a saturation point as well. Hollywood will not blacklist everyone to the detriment of its own economy beyond a certain point. People will not be willing to let go of their most beloved idols, no matter what they're accused or even convicted of.

I read some article about how the kid who plays Mike had to ask everyone to stop being creepy towards him and his co-stars. Apparently there are a bunch of people who are RPF shipping him and the girl who plays Eleven. And I guess some 27-year old model told him to "hit her up in 4 years" and then claimed that she totally wasn't propositioning a child when people said that was gross.

Appropriate shipping of the characters in show is fine. Erotic fanfic/RP or shipping of the actual actors is creepy as all hell imo.

Even if it's harmless fun, some fans get out of hand and will like read that poo poo at Q&A panels, it's super uncomfortable for adults let alone kid actors.

There's probably been a false accusation already. Like you said, how would you know? The sheer volume of some perpetrators' incidents virtually guarantees that someone would try to get in on it for greed or fame or a twisted sense of justice. It's even easier with this new wave of "I don't remember but I apologize anyway" PR management responses. And it absolutely shouldn't affect the search for earnest truth and reconciliation, but it will, because it's always easier to deflect and counterattack than to accept and redress.

Yeah I mean if you want to write fanfiction of the characters I don't care. But when it's (presumably) adults writing about how they want these two real kids to hook up... that's pretty weird.
