Not Mr. Rodgers. Never Mr. Rodgers. That would be the most shocking for me. Obama and Jimmy Carter would be huge shockers too, and very very disappointing. I also hope Ian McKellen stays off the list.

Of those who have so far been accused, no one has really shocked me except Cosby. Some of them were known to be sexual predators on this board (Weinstein and Spacey, for example) and none of the others were people I actively believed would never have sexually harassed anyone.

Are any of yall as pissed off as I am about all these women coming forth asking why are all these women coming forth now? Seriously? You dont remember that opening your mouth was equivalent to career suicide? Or social suicide? And whose to say they didnt bring it up then and was told to stay quiet.

And in my opinion, any woman who slept her way to a promotion was sexually harassed. Sure it was consensual. She may have asked for it, but if you werent in a position of power would she have done it? Men dont flatter yourself. Yes power is attractive, but if it was one you had power over, you are guilty. Period.
The most accident prone person on the planet..... :(

Yeah, I got to listen to my SIL hold forth on this subject not long ago. She thought all the women Weinstein slept with were complicit because they got something out of it. Like where do I even begin...?

 

You can't tell her anything about anything (she knows it all and always has, for as long as I've known her) so I just shut my mouth and slugged my drink. The alcohol helped, but not enough.

Salma Hayek - very powerful (to me) and well-written op-ed about Weinstein.

I had no idea how much she went through for that film. He deserves everything he gets. And so many people had it even worse than she did.

We all believe her. Nobody believes you. Your career is over. It's never coming back. Go away.

This Matt Damon interview is just rage inducing. He is the perfect example of why sexual harassment and abuse has been allowed to go on for so long in our society.

True, but......A sexist/harassing pat on the butt IS different from pedophilia and rape. Both need to be confronted, people need to feel supported and BELIEVED in coming forward, and our society needs to change. But not every action requires the same nuclear response.

Lainey's response to the Damon interview. Great points. I need to work on avoiding what I've been doing.....

 

the point is not to talk about how one man’s actions are worse than another’s, the point is to understand that all of these actions originate from the same place and that the consequence of these actions result in stolen opportunities, primarily for women, reinforcing the gender inequality that persists in every segment of society.

TJ Miller, the douchebag who got fired from Silicon Valley, is next up on the Hollywood Predator Advent Calendar. He's got asshole written all over him, so I'm not surprised.

 

As I recall, sexual assault, domestic violence....you know, the usual

It is depressing that so many of the BIs now are about rape and child abuse. :(

Any drug use that doesn't lead to death, how's that? (Shane McGowan just had his 60th birthday - how the hell did that happen??? Keith Richards sharing stem cells???!!)

Vegas casino mogul Steve Wynn facing numerous accusations of sexual assault/harrassment. Does he fit any BIs?

TMZ

 

We talked to a bunch of NYC flower shops who tell us they've fielded a crazy number of requests for white roses that Grammy attendees plan to wear Sunday at Madison Square Garden. As you know ... guests are wearing them to show solidarity with the Time's Up movement. It's music's version of the black gowns at the Golden Globes.
