Okay, okay, I give up. We will wait for the male species to become perfect (the part that isn't yet) by itself and until the doelike female species can live safely we dry their tears and support the believe that these situations are utterly unexpected and never witnessed before and therefore not manageable.
The only difference from when I was 20 and now is that when I was 20 I would have slapped his paw off and now I'd look him in the eye and tell him to get his hands off.

But as I said, off I trudge with my strange ways of handling problems.
Crikey.. more bollox. It has nothing to do with it. We saw what he did to her. end of. Why do we have to fluff it up into a sh!tstorm.

I would've, she should've, you could've.. honestly, just lots of empty noise, going nowhere.

ROFL, just saw that. A lot more subtle at a funeral than telling him calmly to take his hands off.

Yeah, but if you were performing at a high profile funeral would you really slap the guy down? If so, more power to you, but don’t expect that behavior of other women - at least now. Notice of the behavior is at least a step forward, however small.

My first reaction was just the same, but I realized even such threads are useful: one really gets an idea of how much empathy and understanding one can see around nowadays.


(SPOILER: not so much)

Exactly. I've never heard of half the people named in this thread, particularly Asia Argento, and am mightily distracted from it by a certain incident on a UK show.

You live at the wrong end of the country.

Very famous person, from a very famous family, multi-generational actors, directors, producers, and screen writers, which she, like her father, has done all of the above.

If you have the wherewithall to kick into instant fight mode, then that's excellent. Go for it. Not everyone can, though.
Sometimes is coming when and where you're not expecting it in the least...I also had my little embarrassing moment I decided to forget because frankly I felt sorry for that person - trying to kiss a 20 year old temporary employee (I had one of those student summer jobs) whose parents he knew well...is just cringeworthy. He didn't repeat it but I was always wondering what on earth could have possibly gotten into his mind..risking his reputation, old friendships etc for an impulse. I put it on his age, andropause, whatever. Embarrassing. Not worth of meToo movement lol, but I know how one must feel. Even short and bizarre episodes like this do shake a little bit your trust in male human fellows....;-(

Re: When You Wish Upon a Weinstein

Turns out the charges against Spacey may need to be dropped because the mobile phone has disappeared, and most of the evidence with it.

Still, the mob won't care as their primitive thirst for revenge has been fulfilled, Spacey's off screen and may well remain so.
