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.

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.

Re: When You Wish Upon a Weinstein

Film mogul Harvey Weinstein has reached a tentative $25m (£19m) settlement with dozens of women who have accused him of sexual misconduct, lawyers have said.

There are so many things wrong with this. On a bloody walking frame - maybe someone did what they should have done from the start and kicked him really hard in the nuts, but it looks to me to be a sympathy harvesting ruse. Next he'll be playing the Earnest Saunders card.
And for some, accepting a payout will merely reinforce the notion that the complainants were only ever in it for the money and jumped on a lucrative bandwagon.
From that article:
Quote:
One plaintiff backing the deal, Louisette Geiss, told Associated Press (AP) news agency: "This settlement will ensure that all survivors have the chance for recovery and can move forward without Harvey's damaging lock on their careers."
How's that going to work? He's not admitting anything and he's not personally paying it either. His fortune will remain intact as the settlement will be paid by insurance companies!

Re: When You Wish Upon a Weinstein

But he escaped life imprisonment! When oh when did this once powerful man now need a walker? Funny we never saw him at the Oscars with a walker! Maybe it was a screenplay he once read which he thought would mitigate the sentencing and resonate with the jurors

Agree, he knows acting and has been putting on a "sick old man" act, but not accurately reflecting his true kind of sickness.

Re: When You Wish Upon a Weinstein

Weinstein’s lawyer, Donna Rotunno, said her client would appeal. “He took it like a man".

"Taking it like a man" is a skill that may well come in handy in the years to come.

Yeah, maybe he's clumsy and will drop the soap in the shower....frequently.
