He’s not doing that to be in character. Being “in character” is playing the phrase “being the villain” to the hilt because it is a phrase used to deflect criticism of a person’s behavior.

“Let Me Be Frank” is an absolutely loaded phrase to this end. “Just believe I’m a villain you love to hate.” He’s not confused about what he’s doing, Kevin Spacey knows exactly what he’s doing. He is counting on the support of a bunch of people who don’t have any real grasp of his actions beyond him being an actor.

Yeah, that's a fair point, I phrased that badly. It's just... depressing and bewildering.

Oh, well, that's all water under the bridge, as I always say. Water under the bridge!



It perfectly encapsulates the mentality of abusers like Spacey, who believe that it is impossible for people not to love them. Keep in mind, this is like the first tweet he's made since the whole "I apologize for sexually assaulting someone, btw I'm gay" thing. None of this about remorse, it's about deflection and positioning.

My girlfriend brought up him being a very talented actor even as she rebuked this PR stunt, and even the well-meaning are just suckered into this farce he’s hiding behind. I’m sorry I came off harshly on you. I used to associate with people who would use the phrase “being the villain” to defend people who openly used all variety of slurs or horrible behavior. The acceptance of delusionally seeing what we’re doing as being part of some extension of artistic license or art is literally what Kevin invokes.

I’m not mad at you, it bears repeating, I’m mad that people have used this phrase and the acceptance of it is precisely how we even arrive at this piece of human garbage equating rape as just being part of something daring that “challenges norms.” He has doubled down on his initial defense of coming out as gay when accusations of rape arose. He just picked a more well-accepted or potent part of ideology to do so.

Yeah, that's completely understandable. I appreciate you explaining it because I didn't think about how what I said came off. I don't blame you for feeling heated about this particular video either because it's really gross and at least to some degree works on people.

The whole thing is likely some bizarre attempt at deflection on Spacey’s part. Try and get everyone talking about that creepy-rear end video rather than the news of the felony sexual assault charge against him. It’s so transparent though, that I don’t think it’s gonna work.

The distinct backfire is one just makes the other creepier, like a feedback loop. Seriously the charges are made creepier by the video somehow, and the video sure as hell is made creepier by the charges.

I don't get the point of the Jessica Alba one. They had a consenting relationship, the guy was a bit creepy due to the age difference but that's it. Am I missing something? The headline makes it sound like he's raping virgins but as far as I can tell they were just a couple...

Alba didn't even say anything negative about him?

18 year olds can't consent.

They can only do war, gambling and smoking. Smoking with consent of parents. Or someone who is 21.

Nobody is really saying that he should be charged with a crime, but when you're a 30 year old actor in a working relationship with an 18 year old co-worker, you shouldn't be considering that a dating opportunity. Obviously that's how show business has operated for a long time, so it's not exactly shocking to hear about but it doesn't make it right.

A 12 year age gap really isn’t much to talk about for Hollywood.

Unless he was her boss I don’t really see this as another example of Weatherly doing something wrong.

The subject of the article is already in the news because he got Eliza Dushku fired for refusing his advances. So it's another related story of how Weatherly has been a creep for his whole career.

Age gaps matter less and less the older the younger person is. A 23 year old dating a 17 year old is sleazy as he'll even if they live somewhere where it's legal, a 23 year old dating a 29 year old wouldn't make people blink.

The best guide I saw was that it’s about how long the individuals have had to be adults. A close friend of mine is 21 but dating a 46-year-old; she’s only had 3 years to be an adult and still hasn’t figured herself out. If she was 30 and he was 55, she would have had 12 years of experience as an adult on her own and maturing. She’d be completely different and it’s a lot less creepy.

I remember an Australian politician recently pointing out that some other politician was [x] number of years older than his partner when he met her and heavily implied that he'd been grooming her, trying to frame him as a sex creep. But she'd been in her 20s at the time and there was absolutely no indication that he'd been grooming her, it was just a weird political sledge.
(I can't remember who made the accusations but I think it was Senator David Leyonhjelm? He's a weird creepy man who's obsessed with bringing up other politicians' sex lives and is currently being sued for telling a female senator she should "stop shagging men" during senate debate, and is desperately trying to convince everyone that she implied that "All men are rapists" after he misheard one of her comments.)

If that sounds a little hinky, legality-wise, well, the Brooklyn Federal Court thought so too; among the charges being levied against Mack, one is for forced labor conspiracy, accusing her of keeping a number of women working under her via threat of harm. Per Deadline, though, Mack’s lawyers have issued a somewhat novel rebuttal of the claims: Scientology did it first.

Not, to be clear, the “burning your initials into another person’s pubic region” parts—that’s a NXIVM original, allegedly—but Mack’s lawyers are saying that there’s no fundamental differences between the group’s practices, and Scientology’s policy of branding people who leave the organization as “dissidents,” cut off from family and friends who remain within the group. That’s relevant thanks to a 2009 court ruling, which found that those psychological pressures didn’t rise to the level of “threat of serious harm” required to trigger the country’s forced labor statutes, so if Mack is guilty, the argument runs, then Scientology must be, too.

No regret, no sense of wrong doing. gently caress her.

Half your age + 7 is the only answer to age gap. If it doesn’t meet that criterion then it’s gross.
