I think I missed the Dunham connection on that one.

The last nine weeks, spent both wrongfully accused and ignored, were frightening for me and my family. It was also baffling. As days turned to weeks, and weeks into months, Random House and Ms. Dunham's silence became unfathomable.

#MeToo movement lawmaker investigated for sexual misconduct allegations

Previously on #MeToo:
Quote:
“Multiple people have grabbed my butt and grabbed my breasts,” she said. “We’re talking about senior lobbyists and lawmakers.”



And unrelated to the above, mob mentality has repercussions:
Quote:
Today she did not survive. Jill took her own life.

Jill was victimized by our new culture of unlimited information sharing and a willingness to accept statement as fact. The speed of disseminating information has carried mistruths about Jill as a person, which she was unable and unwilling to challenge. She became collateral damage in an already horrific story.

Jill believed in the Movement. She supported every woman finally coming forward to share their dark truths and expose those who had committed previously unspeakable deeds. She was loyal. She was strong. Jill was many things, but she was not a liar.

What Ever Happened To Brendan Fraser?

James Woods wrote:
I recommend this interview highly. I, too, was blacklisted by that individual at #HFPA after nine Golden Globe nominations. During a press junket with HFPA, he asked if I would support Hillary Clinton if she ever ran for president. Never nominated again.

For the record, however, he was never physically “sketchy” with me in any way similar to that alleged by Brendan Fraser in GQ. He was probably aware I might have knocked his teeth out, had he tried. Final note: I’m so glad Brendan Fraser is back entertaining us. I’m a big fan.


I thought the Apple stock reference was funny.
Quote:
JW: While #Liberals scream about the 50's blacklist, my #Repub actor friends are terrified of losing their ability to provide for their families

Q: Are there more #Repub actors than we know, and they all just remain quiet for fear of being shunned and blacklisted?

JW: Absolutely. The only reason I express my views is that I have accepted the fact that I'm blacklisted. Also I bought Apple stock in the 80's

Both straight shooters according to me. I _hope_ there is no shit between the lines here.
Brendan Frasier and Woods are really talented. Woods I do love for his life philosophy. Live in a hotel. Brilliant!

We?

I don't recall hearing that she said it was anything other than a relationship of consent.

Kudos where it's due. CNN in this case.

Apparently there is a lack of distancing from Farrakhan...

In all accounts I recall hearing, none involved her being an unwilling participant. On the other hand, there were many preceding incidents involving potential rape. It is an interesting choice to focus on what is perhaps the least troubling incident involving Bill.

What do you think about Harvey Weinstein's accusers and the #MeToo movement?

I’m not going be like Donna Karan and kill my career, or like Pamela Anderson. They say it’s the women’s fault. I will never do that because, look, every girl has been sexually taken advantage of. I think he's disgusting and a pig. He handled this thing terribly. But some of it doesn't make sense to me. Especially when they say, "Oh, it happened six times." That's weird. I think in certain instances, women slept with him in exchange for a part, and he kept his end of the bargain.

Women are the real sexual abusers, and men aren't their only victims. The other women who are too ethical or too ugly to use sex to get what they want, they suffer too.
