Korine wrote Kids when he was 17. I remember on the old Gummo dvd, there's a small featurette with an audio "interview" (he's just talking to himself) with Korine, where he said something along the lines of "sexually fantasizing about 12 year olds doesn't necessarily make you a bad person... but maybe I've said too much" and then it ended abruptly.

I don't have trouble believing victims. Knowing the full history of the Woody poo poo, though, I just can't get on the condemnation train. It's the only case I can think of that sets off my skepticism alarms, and I don't blame anyone for either working with him or choosing not to work with him.

That's loving awful. And she's not kidding, Kramer was the top stuntman back in the day. Dude was Arnold's double for at least a decade, Commando, Predator, T2, etc. I saw the pic of him hugging a little girl that Dushku mentioned, taken last year. Ugh.

It was my understanding that France's non-extradition policy only applies if the death penalty is a possible sentence for the offense, and not as a general principle concerning any crime. Even then, the US/France extradition treaty grants the state the option to refuse in such a case, not the requirement.

I'm just speculating, but that Ansari date reads like a routine he's developed to get laid at all costs, and is probably more common than people realize. I've known guys who've done it, and women who've been subject to it, and I never buy the "misread the situation" excuse these guys claim after the fact. Either someone is being reciprocal or they're not, and it seems far more likely that they just don't give a poo poo about whether or not the other person wants it.

Misread that. My bad. Still, it appears that he had a specific type he was going for, in terms of general age range. Kramer has ninety-eight titles to his name on IMDB. That's a long list of opportunities for him to do damage. Like, he worked on The Conjuring 2 a couple of years ago. Some of the lead actresses in that movie fit right in that range.

I've always thought Alyssa Milano probably had some horror stories. Considering she started the #metoo hashtag, I'd be surprised if she doesn't address it.

Not saying what Ansari did is acceptable, but Ansari being front page news while all the Larry Nassar poo poo is flying under the radar is ... disappointing? ( not the best phrase, I know)

Nassar and his enablers were a Weinstein/stunt guy/massive cover-up that MeToo was supposed to bring the light. Instead we get a babe.net pissing match

The Nassar victim impact statements were prime time network news last night, with no mention of Ansari in sight.

But he should have just done his time and tried to rehabilitate rather than taking his own life. Goddamn tragic when people go to that extreme imo.

Sure, but is there really any recourse for someone who will be on the sex offender registry as a pedophile for life? Not that I think all pedophiles convicted of a crime should just kill themselves, but that's a mark that doesn't just go away after you do your time/make restitution to society in the internet age. The days of fully paying one's debt and being given a second chance are over for people like the Glee dude, much less the Victor Salva types.

Interesting that comes up since GameSpot recently deleted and apologised for a tweet that called the old Lara design 'over-sexualised' and implied she wasn't an icon before her reboot redesign, after a feminist complained it's slut-shaming and enforcing patriarchal modesty norms.

Eh, that kinda thing isn't really all that impressive. I remember a few or more years back there was some snot-nosed, dipshit conservative e-journalist/youtuber who got semi famous secretly taping outrageous conversations he'd prompted with staff in a few liberal orgs. I think he did it with Planned Parenthood and some voter registration non-profit. He would show up or call in and pretend to be a pimp or a racist and then get some random volunteer to try and talk around his obvious lunacy. It was a big jerk off waste of time and the guy who did it literally has the most punchable face ever.

I mean realistically, I'm totally sure that this bellhop routinely provides advice on how to hide a body to random hotel guests that he met 5 minutes ago, and that the FBI are just too lazy to catch pedophiles. That scenario seems much more likely than the possibly that he was just humoring a guest that was either drunk, playing a joke, or crazy, something I doubt he's unfamiliar with in Vegas.

You're talking about James o'keefe who is the most obvious con in existence, who also selectively edits his footage.

I have a hard time wrapping my head around a motive for this crime. Hes going to lose his entire career, he going to possibly go to jail, he actively made things shittier for actual hate crime victims, hes humiliated political allies.....and he risked all that just to try and guilt the producers of his show into giving him a raise? Or some sick desire for attention? It boggles the mind.

Pure speculation here, but it if I'm being charitable, it might have been an incredibly stupid attempt to draw more attention to an issue he found important. But a noble idiot is still an idiot.

Really though, I think going viral at all costs is really the name of the game, it's just capitalist opportunism in its latest incarnation. At the very least, if he didn't get a sympathy raise from the network, he might've benefited by gaining a poo poo ton of social media followers and been given paid speaking gigs and further employment opportunities for years based on name recognition alone. Being the new face of a cause can be monetized like anything else.

It's the same poo poo with people faking their research in the sciences. The motives are really only about benefiting the one person, even if the potential negatives can set back progress and the public perception of the entire subject for years, because human beings are extremely lovely when it comes to considering the big picture over their own immediate interests.
