Re: When You Wish Upon a Weinstein

This very article and the bits of chat in it sheds a completely different light on this.
She made something really stupid and has tried to cover it, but this has nothing to do with the #meToo movement. Should not even be in this topic IMHO

Re: When You Wish Upon a Weinstein

Somebody should send the link of this thread to Mr. Weinstein, I'm sure with all he's gone thru (and all that will follow) it would warm his heart to see how much support he receives from some EFers

It's not support, it's insistence on due process and innocent until proven guilty.

You however appear to prefer witch hunts or trial by ordeal.

Why is the grammar in memes so poor? It's almost universally true that the English used in these memes is virtually incomprehensible.

Doesn't it go back to lolcats which were early memes.

On the other hand possibly many of our more prolific posters are more at home using the Cyrillic alphabet so bad grammar isn't really surprising.

Re: When You Wish Upon a Weinstein

the whole metoo crap is a witch hunt, no proof, just shout about someone abusing you, which you never reported to the police, and bam, careers ended overnight.

This is your opinion and I respect it.
Mine is that as can happen with all things both material and not, the #metoo has been misused by some.
Surely there have been wannabe stars that used it to get a place under the spotlight, and surely careers have been thrown down the drain with no trial and sometimes no evidence, but the truth remains and it is that in the showbiz meritocracy was hard to find especially if you are female and especially since the big bosses are all male.

Everyone knew, the old saying "Vox Populi, Vox Dei" describes it perfectly I think. And even if some of the most prominent figures of the movement are not spotless, one can call them hypocrites, but IMHO generalizing is not a good way to see things.

I disagree. the me too movement is witch-hunt and belongs in the according century. The way to go is: Report to authorities, go through trial, have the person proven guilty (or not). A lot of people worked and fought very hard for it to be this way.

And what if there's no evidence and no witnesses? It's not like they were doing it on the red carpet, you know...

rape leaves evidence, of course not 20 years after the event, turning up weeks, months, years later on the red carpet with your rapist arm in arm, laughing and joking is pretty damning evidence imho.
