Title: Hollywood Under Fire For Sexual Assault
Post by: Harley Quinn on October 26, 2017, 10:04:02 AM
Given the Weinstein stuff, apparently Selma Blair & Rachel McAdams have come out against Director James Toback now regarding sexual assault.

https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2017/10/selma-blair-and-rachel-mcadams-share-their-stories-of-james-toback-sexual-harassment

Quote
The group, which included Blair, worked with Los Angeles Times reporter Glenn Whipp on a story that broke on October 22, citing 38 women in total who alleged sexual harassment suffered at the hands of Toback. Since then, the number of accusers has risen to more than 200 women—including Blair and Oscar-nominated actress Rachel McAdams.
.

I can see more and more Directors/Big Wigs getting named to be honest.

No, this was the guy who created Honest Trailers.

Though the Epic Voice Guy apparently did some douchy stuff following a girl around at a con a few years back as a prank saying lewd stuff about her on a wireless microphone. Nothing as serious as the other guy, but more in the "this is what women have to deal with and guys brush off as ok behavior" kinda deal.

I guess Adam Blampied from Whatculture/whatever the new website is decided to take a leave of absence after he admitted that he used his status and internet celebrity to get girls to send him nude pictures. I mean I understand that sexual assault and harassment is awful and that everyone is rightfully under a microscope right now but it takes two to send nudies.
Now if he was overbearing and harassed the girls until they gave in then that's one thing but if he was like "hey what's up. You know who I am. How about some tits?" and they were like "Sure I'll send you whatever you want Mr. Internet Celebrity!" then it's another story. I never got details on how it actually went down.

I'm certain that if we dig deep enough on every celebrity, we'll get a similar story on each of them.

I’d also change the name of that show, just to completely distance themselves from the Spacey show.  Claire & Doug Road Trip or whatever.   Frank dying with a dick is his mouth is a happy ending for him though, maybe he dies eating poisoned BBQ from Freddy.

I work for an entertainment payroll company, and we're a sister company of Central Casting, one of the bigger casting companies around. I was talking to one of my co-workers from there and he mentioned that he's beyond surprised that it took so long for someone to say something about Kevin Spacey. He said that Spacey is one of the most slimy people there is. He's had many extras complain to him about working with Spacey. Anthony Anderson is a huge name that should be coming down soon, too, he said. There are some really big names he was saying. He didn't go into too much detail since he had to get back to work, but this is going to change things, a lot.

Finslly someone goes on the record about this. It should be noted that in Feldman's book Coreyography he implies that Dominick Brascia also had sex with Haim when he was underage (though Feldman uses the pseudonym "Tony Burnham"). Also he's the fat guy who gets axed in the back in Friday the 13th Part V.

I'd like to say that I'll never watch Lucas again but that would be a lie. It's a really good movie, and it's on HBO Go now.

Brascia is just one of more than 100 people, spread across ten states, contacted by The ENQUIRER as part of its exhaustive probe. His horrid account — after 30-plus years of self-imposed silence — matches those of dozens of other sources who also told The ENQUIRER that Haim named Sheen, now 52 and considered a pariah in Hollywood, as his abuser before he died of pneumonia in 2010.

It's fucked that the guy who also was accused of raping Haim is the only one to go on the record. But with dozens of other sources finally confirming, I'm glad that what we all knew for a long time is out there.

I will say the same thing I've been telling everyone, this stuff isn't only Hollywood, it's everywhere. You hang around men in the workplace long enough you'll see it yourself. People are required to say nothing as a function of living, people can't afford to lose their jobs. The last place I thought this would happen is at my dad's workplace, but it did and the guy got fired eventually. Who knows how long it went on.

Deadline reports Amazon has launched an investigation into claims that Jeffrey Tambor sexually harassed his former assistant. Van Barnes, a trans woman, recently wrote a private Facebook post in which, according to Deadline, she alluded to “inappropriate behavior” on the Transparent star’s behalf. That’s really all the press knows at this time, since the post isn’t available to the public. But Amazon, which was rocked by a sexual harassment scandal at its highest ranks earlier this year, tells the publication it is launching a complete investigation.

I keep waiting for the shoe to fall on Bryan Singer.

Portia de Rossi (along with a slew of other actresses) are saying Steven Seagall harassed them. Hardly a surprise but I maybe this will keep him in Russia.

Unrelated, but I remember trying to watch one of Seagall's latest movies, and it amazed me in not only how fat he's gotten, but how lazy he now is. All the scenes where he was on the screen were of him sitting on a chair, pointing a gun out of a window, and everything else involving his character was clearly done with a double. I didn't think it was possible for someone to beat current day Bruce Willis* in the world of "eh, whatever I don't fuckin' care" roles in movies, but he managed to do just that.

*I have a feeling there might be some dirt on Bruce. I remember reading some story about him trying to shove his tongue down a porn star's throat without her consent, so I wouldn't be shocked if he's assaulted or harassed actress' on set.

Per a Jake Tapper tweet, HBO announced CK was off of their Autism benefit show in a week and they were removing all of his content from their On Demand Services.

I'm not really clamoring for being able to watch Lucky Louie whenever I want, but I am curious what effect this stance will have on networks if the snowball keeps rolling down hill outing people.

Same thing that happened with Bill Cosby, all of his material was virtually wiped out during the fever pitch of his scandal, guess what?  Cosby Show is quietly back in syndication.  Same with these acts, some will be “outraged” and their work will be erased until enough time passes that it’s right back where it was.  18 months from now, you can see Lucky Louie and probably even his new movie that turns out was basically a confession and message of defense.

Of course he will. They all come back, all of them. It's like the homie Rod on the TBGWT podcast likes to say, nobody ever gets canceled. These scandals turn up every now and then, and people always want to say, "So-and-so's career is over!" Is Imus' career over? Is Bill O'Reilly's career over? Is Mel Gibson's career over? CK may have to lay low for a minute, because the block is too hot, but he'll be back, because they always come back.

My gut reaction is yes, although in today's climate, it doesn't seem like much difference will be considered.

http://www.apa.org/research/action/polygraph.aspx

"There is no evidence that any pattern of physiological reactions is unique to deception. An honest person may be nervous when answering truthfully and a dishonest person may be non-anxious. Also, there are few good studies that validate the ability of polygraph procedures to detect deception. As Dr. Saxe and Israeli psychologist Gershon Ben-Shahar (1999) note, "it may, in fact, be impossible to conduct a proper validity study." In real-world situations, it's very difficult to know what the truth is."

I get that they aren't perfect.  But, in the grand scheme of things I tend to believe if someone passes a polygraph they are more likely to be telling the truth than not. 

The thing is, all this is he said-she said unless there is proof one way or the other.  I'm just not real comfortable with the new climate (which in all fairness seems to be the opposite of the old climate) of women don't ever lie about this, so if they make an accusation it's true.

And my guess is if this were the opposite.  If she took a polygraph and passed it, the reaction would be different.

the stat for false reports is like 3% so if the woman passed it would be reinforcing something that was already incredibly likely. Polygraph tests are total bullshit though so I wouldn't use it to believe anyone.

Yeah. Just because NYT/CNN are stupid enough to not inquire/dig into it doesn't mean it's less relevant.

Netflix just announced that the next season of House of Cards will be its last.

Production has been suspended. This escalated very quickly.

And now Netflix has severed all ties with Spacey so if there is another season of House of Cards, it won't involve him.

Last season will contain 8 episodes and solely focus on Robin Wright's character. Not confirmed if Spacey's character will be killed off or not even acknowledged. A spin-off is still a possibility.

Three More Accusers of Dustin Hoffman Speak Out (http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/women-accusing-dustin-hoffman-sexual-assault-speak-article-1.3708755)

Quote
Cori Thomas, Kathryn Rossetter and Anna Graham Hunter spoke to "NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt" to share their experiences with Hoffman, 80, who stands accused of sexual assault and/or harassment by eight different women.

Thomas was just 16 when Hoffman allegedly exposed himself to her in a New York City hotel room and requested a massage after a day spent roaming the city with her and his daughter, Karina, one of Thomas' friends from school.

Kathryn Rossetter meanwhile, worked with Hoffman on the 1980 Broadway production of "Death of a Salesman," and claims her stage partner repeatedly groped her backstage. Rossetter said he once tried to penetrate her with his fingers after placing his hand on her thigh, and that she was advised to just suck it up, as he was one of the most famous stars in the world.

The actress later worked with Hoffman again on the 1985 TV movie version of "Death of a Salesman" — the same set in which Anna Graham Hunter says Hoffman made crass comments to her, groped her and repeatedly requested foot rubs when she was a 17-year-old intern.

If you can't understand why one might think there's hypocrisy in letting Spacey go for allegations of sexual misconduct but hiding allegations of rape for someone that you use to sell your network, then idk

I'm not even saying I agree with it...but it's not a bad point.

The difference is that one is playing a character who harassed people on set and the other is a convicted murderer that everyone should realize is still scum even if he didn't do it.

Chappelle mentions Schachner's story twice in his sexual harasssment bit. "One lady said, 'Louis C.K. masturbated in front of me, ruined my comedy dreams,'" he says. "Word?' Well then I dare say, madam, you may have never had a dream. Come on man, that's a brittle spirit. That is a brittle-ass spirit, that is too much, this grown-ass woman."

Chappelle says that if Louis C.K. had masturbated in front of civil-rights icon Martin Luther King, he doubts that King would have dropped his "dream." "Show business is just harder than that," he continues. "I know that sounds fucked up, I'm not supposed to say that, but one of these ladies was like, 'Louis C.K .was masturbating while I was on the phone with him.' Bitch, you don't know how to hang up a phone? How the fuck are you going to survive in show business if this is an actual obstacle to your dreams?"

Director Paul Haggis has been accused by 4 women of assault and rape. This one though seems to be different going by some reactions from people as they think since Haggis used to be a Scientologist and has appeared in a documentary going against and exposing it for what it is that the church is going after him now with false accusations. The other side of this angle is that maybe the Church of Scientology covered it up for him and now that he's against them... it'll all come out just what kind of man he is.

Christian Slater I've heard nothing about but it wouldn't surprise me if women came out against him. Have we already forgotten that Franco tried to get a 17-year-old girl to hook up with him? When she published their text conversation online, he spun it as if she was the one hitting on him and he scoffed her.
Title: Re: Hollywood Under Fire For Sexual Assault
Post by: CookieMueller on January 08, 2018, 08:41:49 AM
You haven't heard about Christian Slater?
From wiki:
In 1997, Slater was convicted of assaulting his then-girlfriend, Michelle Jonas, and a police officer while under the influence of drugs and alcohol. He spent over 100 days in a rehabilitation facility while out on bail and then was sentenced to a three-month term in jail followed by three months in a residential rehab center.

On May 24, 2005, Slater was arrested in Manhattan, New York, after he allegedly sexually harassed a woman on the street. A video of Slater being arrested was recorded and shown on television. Slater was charged with third degree sexual abuse and was held at the 19th precinct in Manhattan. The charges were later dropped on the condition that Slater keep out of trouble for six months.

I love a lot of early Christian Slater work but yeah, his behavior towards women is very problematic and him being there while they're screaming "Time's up!" every 5 minutes was very awkward.


Franco wouldn't shock me at all. The 17 year old girl thing was a particularly bad look for him because she told him she was 17 (and in high school) and then later he (or his publicists) tried to spin it that it was "research for a role", which has to be the dumbest excuse an actor could ever use but they still do and get away with it.

Oh, and Rose McGowan, Asia Argento, Mira Sorvino, Rosanna Arquette and other accusers supposedly weren't even invited

I'm kind of torn on how to react to some of this.

I think people should be called out for sexual harassment and ostracized for it. But I don't know if it should be a career ender as they can repent and turn it around.

However assault and rape I can't forgive and I feel like that's what people should be coming down the most on.

Maybe I'm thinking of it wrong but I feel like you can dredge at least one encounter up from all of our pasts that would be considered sexual harassment. Not saying it's right, but I think it's more common in everyone's life than we realized and now it's coming to light.

Of course I've always known no means no and have not crossed that boundary. But I can think of instances where I said something inappropriate to a girl that probably made her feel terrible or uncomfortable.

Semi-off topic but I'm always huge on no means no. I remember there was a girl I was talking to in college and we're at her apartment making out and things are progressing but she stops me and says no. I say okay and it didn't go any further. The next day I get an angry text from her wondering why I didn't make a move and sometimes no means yes. Sorry girl, I don't play that game.

The nursing company won't name itself, was recently fired and the new company says it's never had any complaints at all. The old company and it's employees haven't filed any charges or put any lawsuits forward. Lee also was robbed of hundreds of thousands of dollars before he changed nursing companies. I've seen most sites that are normally quick to jump on everything say that this should be taken with a grain of salt given the source.

Had to google his name. Dan Schneider. Been a Harvey Weinstein level open secret for years. If even 1/100th of what they say about him is true, he better keep a bottle of cyanide in his pocket until this "me too" thing blows over.

I don't know if Dan Schneider is actually guilty of sexual impropriety, but the only reason it's an "open secret" is because a poster called "Himmmm" on the gossip blog Crazy Days and Nights (http://www.crazydaysandnights.net) accused him of such crimes several years ago while also hinting that he was Robert Downey Jr. (https://jezebel.com/5892565/is-robert-downey-jr-spreading-insider-celeb-gossip-on-blogs) (Which RDJ denied. (http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2012/03/22/robert-downey-jr-denies-is-anonymous-commenter-spreading-hollywood-dirt-in.html)) There's some internet chatter alleging that he's the father of Jamie Lynn Spears' baby and that he's why Amanda Bynes went crazy, but no actual specific allegations. However, I did a see a 909176761325375488[/tweet]]Twitter thread (http://[tweet) a few months back detailing all the creepy shit he puts in his Nickelodeon shows, and also he worked with this guy (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3115792/Pedophile-X-Men-actor-convicted-sexually-abusing-Nickelodeon-child-star-working-underage-kids.html) at one time.

That Ansari story if true....man. I've misread the situation before and kissed a girl that wasn't interested. But when she said she wasn't interested I stopped. I didn't whip it out  and demand she suck it to make everything better after she told me no. Jesus fuck it's not that hard to stop the encounter when someone decides it's too far.

I've had girls change their mind before too. Things have progressed and then they've said "you know what? I'm really not ready for this tonight. Can we take it back?" And you know what I did? Took it back or stopped. And I never gave them shit about blueballs or anything like that. Maybe I just don't have that sense of entitlement to a woman's body these guys do.

One of my male friends was defending Aziz heavy. "she coulda left" is such a dumbass thing only someone who has never been in that situation could say. It's tough when you've had a fun night with someone and genuinely hope to have a friendship/relationship with a guy and he gets a little drunk and turns into this persistent leach, "playfully" blocking your exit and doing that FUUUUNNN thing where he HOLDS YOUR HEAD IN HIS CROTCH haha and you're on a tightrope trying to balance rejecting someone while being nice. And the further it goes the more scary it gets and you start imaging all the dead/missing/raped women on the news and suddenly a BJ doesn't sound so bad. Anything to get away from the situation.

He didn't hold her head at his crotch, she went down on him twice according to her account. The story seems like one of those more of somebody that's completely socially retarded than someone who had any intention of making a person uncomfortable. Considering how many socially retarded people exist, it is probably necessary to just straight out say no. She told him to slow down and for a lot of people that doesn't mean no. For the record the words "no" and "stop" are at no point quoted in that article. Obviously I feel bad for her because this isn't what she wanted, but this isn't a cut and dry situation. She met a regular guy who happens to be famous and regular guys can be pretty creepy when a woman gets into their apartment and gives them a blowjob.

Quote
“It was fun meeting you last night,” Ansari sent on Tuesday evening. “Last night might’ve been fun for you, but it wasn’t for me,” Grace responded. “You ignored clear non-verbal cues; you kept going with advances.” She explains why she is telling him how she felt: “I want to make sure you’re aware so maybe the next girl doesn’t have to cry on the ride home.”

“I’m so sad to hear this,” he responded. “Clearly, I misread things in the moment and I’m truly sorry.”

I don't see why he needed to be put on blast. I wonder how people would feel if their stories of rejection were aired out like that, because it's pretty likely a lot of them sound similar to this. It's not that I disbelieve her story in any way, but it's obviously one sided. His response speaks for itself I think, that he thought something else was happening, and that often happens between two people in any situation.

Post by: Firmino of the 909 on January 15, 2018, 06:13:36 AM
I also question why this story was published on this site instead of another more reputable site, and I can only assume that because the shades of grey are so large here that they wouldn't have published it somewhere else. My personal opinion is that she was expecting something much more from Aziz and didn't get it. I'm gonna be careful with what I say here, but regardless it's going to sound like slut shaming. If you look at Aziz there is no way someone's gonna abandon their date, follow him around like that, go into his apartment after a first date, or hang around his apartment unless he's famous. She clearly did want something from him, the same way he wanted something from her, and neither of them got it.  That being said I have never had it happen to me where I was invited into someone's apartment or invited someone into my apartment after the first date and we went our separate ways without boning.

Unfortunately everyone has regrets about sexual experiences and that isn't exclusive to these kinds of situations. There are stories that anyone could tell which would probably sound as bad as this does. I do however question why Aziz would be this interested in someone much younger than him and I think that's probably the most alarming thing about the situation. Because, even though I feel that he's socially retarded (which is another kettle of fish), chasing around a woman that much younger than him is always going to feel predatory to me.

Yeah, this seems to be a story that a lot of people are questioning. I have a lot of friends, male and female, who have been for the women coming out, but for the most part, they've had the same reaction as 909.
Title: Re: Hollywood Under Fire For Sexual Assault
Post by: CookieMueller on January 15, 2018, 08:29:54 AM
I feel that her story is fairly complete, because if she was going to lie she could have added like 2 more sentences and made it WAY WORSE for him. Instead she told the story in a way that she has to know opens herself for shame and ridicule. So I believe her story to be totally accurate.

I guess the division of how people react to it lies in whether or not they've been in that situation. On either side. Guys who have been in his shoes and let the girl walk away because she didn't seem into it are probably more on her side and guys who haven't had that decision to make probably don't see it as much of a problem. Girls who haven't been in her shoes are probably more likely to say "oh i woulda left!" and girls who have been in her spot probably fall more on my side of the argument which is that she was probably young, scared and confused (and adding alcohol into the scenario compacts all of this infinitely).

Bottom line is that this story is probably the most important one to come out because it sheds the most light on what's really going on. It's easy to look at a rape or even on work-related harassment and shut the book on that. It's much more difficult to see this story as black and white and that's difficult because this is happening every single day. Most women won't be raped in their life. Most men will never even have rape cross their minds as an action they are tempted to commit. But this story? Every single day these scenarios play out. I guess I hope some guys read this and can put themselves in a woman's shoes but I know that's not how the internet works in general.
Title: Re: Hollywood Under Fire For Sexual Assault
Post by: Firmino of the 909 on January 15, 2018, 09:12:27 AM
The story isn't even remotely in question to me, it is that I have a general idea of his version and it is hard to find too much fault in it. The fingers in the mouth thing is really fucking gross though. She gave him head twice and he thought she was playing games. He obviously had no intention of raping or assaulting her, but he assumed like all guys do, that because she went up there and didn't leave or tell him he was being a creep/stop/no, that she was there to have sex with him eventually. If he wanted to rape or assault her, or jack off in front of her like other creeps named in this thread, he could have done that and gotten away with it because that's what happens.

Her version obviously is that he was being a creep the whole time (which I don't disagree with) and that even though she gave him head it was irrelevant, she didn't want to have sex with him. Like I said some people are retarded enough that they need to be put in check and clearly Aziz Ansari is one of these people.

Now that all being said if someone else says this happened to them too after this then his side comes massively into question because once being told he should know better. Plus, everyone should be more aware of these situations, which is what we're all learning now. I'm certainly not going to say he should have his stuff cancelled and be humiliated over something like this as it's more a case of miscommunication and lack of understanding than anything else. I feel bad for both of them at this point as the cultural implications of this story will probably destroy his personal life. I have no idea how you face your culturally conservative parents when something like this happens. I also feel that a story like this one that doesn't feature a rape allegation needs to be inclusive of the man's experience too, especially considering that the original publication says that he apologized the next day immediately upon being told there was a problem. Time will tell if he's merely a pervert or if this was a misunderstanding, because with this kind of scrutiny something else will definitely be published if it exists.
Title: Re: Hollywood Under Fire For Sexual Assault
Post by: CookieMueller on January 15, 2018, 09:36:41 AM
I guess I'm mostly disgusted by people calling her into question. "Why didn't she name herself???" Well gee, I guess we see why now. Again, it's not a cut-and-dry story for most people and it seems a lot of people are totally shaming her. I give her kudos for not only having the courage to tell her story at all, but also for not changing the story to make it more kind to herself. She didn't make him into a monster, if anything he's become the first man to have a story like this come out where the majority is on his side. "Well she didn't SAY no" is basically the byline of this story.

Again, I just hope the takeaway is that more men will care and understand, exhibit empathy. Read the cues and say "hey do you want to do this?" instead of what I've had a lot of experiences of in my life which is the man becoming a brick wall and resorting to whining for something he thinks he is owed. There have been men that I've gone on dates with and it isn't a yes or no for me. I'm still deciding whether I want to do anything sexual and as that's going on in my (possibly intoxicated) head I also have him drooling all over me begging. Like most things in life it's not black and white. It's not rape but it's also not acceptable.

I don't want Aziz to be Weinsteined. It's not what he deserves, especially if he's willing to open up and listen. It's also not a Franco situation where these are accusations that have dogged him for years from multiple women. But I also don't want this woman to feel shamed, nor other women that have had similar situations to feel shamed into silence.
Title: Re: Hollywood Under Fire For Sexual Assault
Post by: Damaramu on January 15, 2018, 10:18:43 AM
It's strange.

As I said earlier I've been in that situation and I walked away fairly easily.

However my wife made the comment "If that's sexual assault then I've been sexually assaulted a lot." And I realized that she doesn't see it as sexual assault. She keeps going to the "He's not a mind reader! Tell him no!" camp. And my wife is also a hardcore liberal feminist so her reaction is really throwing me off.


I do feel like the situation is starting to swing too far in the other direction though to the point dudes who didn't do anything are going to start getting accused and their careers are going to be over because everyone is taking a very "If anyone accuses you you're GUILTY" way of doing this to the point the other side will emphatically shut off and try to turn the MeToo movement into what they turned Black Lives matter into and then people that have a real story to tell aren't going to be listened to.

You alienate a large chunk of the good people on your side to the point they decide to ignore your movement in fear something might effect them and then the outright pieces of shit who should've been in fear over what was happening can go back to business as usual. Happens in almost every movement so this one has about the summer before it hits that point I guess. Actually maybe even sooner thanks to the way information is dispersed so quickly now.

I already see people rebelling and acting like all women are lying whores. Of course they're all conservative but there are a lot of women on their side too. Trust me I've seen way too much "Y'all need to just sit back and thank your man for taking care of you with a hot meal when he gets home from work! Stop complaining!"

I really hope this does not come across the wrong way but it seems to me that Aziz may have been used to women wanting to hook up with him because of his fame or a combination of his fame and finding him funny, engaging, etc. Then you have another encounter that seems to be heading that direction and the woman is actually reciprocating some things. I could see where it could have been confusing to him. And he also could have and should have ended it several times. He was more than crossing the line if what she says happened how she said it did.

And also, I have no reason to doubt her story but also wonder if she thought she was giving off the unspoken cues loud and clear but in reality they were not picked up on at all. And I am only speaking of the unspoken ones as there were several times she apparently made it clear verbally as well. I have been in non-sexual situations where I and a female both thought we were giving perfect clues and we could not have been further apart. But to each of us, we were aghast at the other thinking it was going in the other direction.

I saw some HLN lady absolutely ripping the girl. That is the most disappointing thing. The accuser isn't pressing charges, she isn't asking for Aziz to be blackballed or fired from any projects. She's bringing up a real problem in the world and yet the story shifts from "hey maybe guys should watch for the cues and learn to be better people" into yet more victim blaming. That's the infuriating part, for me.

When I've not wanted to have sex with a man I've outright said no every time so I can't relate to her exact situation but I think to say "WELL I ALWAYS SAY NO AND I WOULDA RAN OUTTA THERE" is just a form of victim blaming that I refuse to devolve into.

He's fine, most people are on his side. He will not lose his job over this. Even I, someone leaning on the side of the woman, will continue to watch his shows/standup. The fact that he apologized directly to the girl the next day tells me that once he was sober/not in the heat of the moment he probably saw her perspective slightly. Doesn't mean an admission of guilt, just that he acknowledged he could have handled it different and I bet the next 20-something girl he has over he will for sure be extremely accommodating and extra careful. And how anyone could see that as a bad thing is beyond me.

Yes, it is, and good thing that's not what my idea is. No and stop are merely the most universally communicable ways of telling people not to do something. It is definitely preferable to mind reading. As everyone here has no doubt encountered in life, most people out there are socially stunted individuals who need to be put in check and told no sometimes. This is a societal problem that's only going to get worse as people become more disconnected from each other. The non-verbal cues indicated in the article are not explained in any way and as a result are completely vague. This is an educational opportunity for everyone but this wasn't sexual assault as described by the person telling the story.

He's been let off the hook for a few reasons. Many people who read the article seem to believe that the woman involved decided that she had no agency in the situation, there's also people who believe men can't do anything wrong, and there's people like myself who think this was a major misunderstanding and lack of communication problem. It has nothing to do with Aziz himself, I would be surprised if most people have watched anything he's done.

For a moment I feel like going full tinfoil hat way of the world mode, because this story was released right after another one came out that said a child was molested during the making of a film by Hollywood's most bankable director. As we all know James Cameron's next project has such a big budget it could break the way studios do things if it fails. Cameron also made a preemptive comment about how he couldn't have possibly known because directors are oblivious about the relationships that are taking place on their set. I happen to believe you're an idiot if you think that. It isn't that I'm accusing him, but I find his unnecessary explanation quite befuddling in combination with the timing of these two stories. Of course I'm not saying anything about the validity of the story regarding Aziz, after all he confirmed it himself. This is pretty weird to me though.

The way Barbara Walters treated Corey Feldman, the Mossad spies tracking Weinstein victims, none of that stuff even comes close to as far I believe the entertainment industry would go in order to sustain itself. If people involved with the Panama Papers would outright car bomb the leading journalist on the subject nothing should surprise people. Maybe I'm a little high right now though.

I was replying to the author of those articles. There's no reason for her to change her stance. What the first article suggests is "finally! women have a platform to freely discuss men that hurt them" and what the aziz article suggests is "ugh! women have GOT to shut up! enough already!" It's the same author, what caused the change in opinion? This has NOTHING to do with whether you believe she was assaulted. She deserves to be able to tell her story as long as it's true. That's when your opinion takes over. You don't have to like what she says but she should be able to say it. Aziz and James Franco have even said this in their responses to being accused. I don't want the narrative to shift from "tell your story" into "wildly accuse men of things they didn't do" but at the same time I don't want it to change to "keep quiet about your truths because people will just call you a liar" either.

I think that retort is very over the top and extremely disruptive of the whole "movement" because it paints her as a spoiled brat. But Ashleigh Banfield was way out of line on HLN. I was seriously disappointed because, even if you don't agree with what "Grace" said, you have to allow her the chance to say it especially given that not even Aziz argues with the facts of the story. You can disagree with whether or not it was assault and still be respectful. For instance, everyone in this thread has differing opinions but no one is ripping the girl apart. Ashleigh Banfield totally did and that is completely wrong and if I was the girl that wrote the story I also wouldn't want to go be crucified on her show. And to top it off Banfield wasn't even correct with some of her criticisms. She kept painting "Grace" as someone trying to get their story in the news out of revenge because of a "bad date" when the Babe (what a shit name btw) reporter herself says that they went to "Grace" to ask her to tell her story, not the other way around.

I don't know if Dan Schneider is actually guilty of sexual impropriety, but the only reason it's an "open secret" is because a poster called "Himmmm" on the gossip blog Crazy Days and Nights (http://www.crazydaysandnights.net) accused him of such crimes several years ago while also hinting that he was Robert Downey Jr. (https://jezebel.com/5892565/is-robert-downey-jr-spreading-insider-celeb-gossip-on-blogs) (Which RDJ denied. (http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2012/03/22/robert-downey-jr-denies-is-anonymous-commenter-spreading-hollywood-dirt-in.html)) There's some internet chatter alleging that he's the father of Jamie Lynn Spears' baby and that he's why Amanda Bynes went crazy, but no actual specific allegations. However, I did a see a 909176761325375488[/tweet]]Twitter thread[/url] a few months back detailing all the creepy shit he puts in his Nickelodeon shows, and also he worked with this guy (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3115792/Pedophile-X-Men-actor-convicted-sexually-abusing-Nickelodeon-child-star-working-underage-kids.html) at one time.

Casey Affleck has withdrawn from presenting the Best Actress Award at the upcoming Oscars, Deadline hears. He has notified the Academy he will not be attending the event, sources said. I’ve heard that Affleck did not want to become a distraction from the focus that should be on the performances of the actresses in the category and that is why he made the proactive move. He was in a no-win situation, with all the attention surrounding the #MeToo movement. The specter of Affleck presenting would have created controversy.

That one hurts, but it's not much of a surprise, per se, because he does have a history of being a shithead. I like him on 30 Rock and his SNL stints. I wonder what Tina Fey, an avowed feminist, thinks of this.

I get that it's tough when a friend is accused. Totally get it. But you can just say nothing. To take the step to attack the victim, as if you were there, living in that house, watching his every move is beyond out of order. It's just a friend you work with. Women find out men they are married to, share every moment with, are serial killers. Just because you know someone doesn't mean you know every aspect of their life. I was gonna say an incestuous pedophile wouldn't go flaunting that publicly but dude did MARRY HIS LEGAL DAUGHTER so damn.

Privately calling a close friend accused of a crime you believe (but have no way of KNOWING) is innocent and saying "hey man you have my support" is acceptable. Attacking the victim is not.

That's a simple non-offensive way to answer the question and probably offend nobody sane.

Tarantino is so problematic on a number of issues so this is no surprise.

I do find it strange that Hollywood was totally ready to throw Harvey out the window but they will die on the hill defending Woody Allen and Roman Polanski. The biggest difference is that the accusers of those two are underage so I guess that's more acceptable?

Yeah, Tarantino is the least-surprising name I've seen pop up anywhere in such conversation. Been a fan forever, but guy just the It Factor of scum. I'm shocked its taken so long.

I think people are defending Woody Allen because they think Mia Farrow is nuts and putting things in her kids' heads, and then sweep Soon Yi under the pervert rug. Never got how anyone can defend Polanski with a straight face. Maybe they just figure he'll die sooner or something.

I can't wait until Larry Clark and/or Harmony Korine show up.

What's so creepy about what Tarantino said is the young age of the victim.  13 is usually an 8th grader.  Go to a middle school event and look what that looks like.  There isn't any defending it even if you don't believe any of the plying her with drugs/alcohol stuff.

This isn't some director having consensual sex with their 17-year-old star.  Not saying that's right, but you could at least see how it's a mistake someone could make.  And maybe they don't deserve to be thrown in prison.

I'm going to point out two things about this regardless of how they will be responded to.

1. When Tarantino made those comments, information wasn't as easily publicly accessible.

2. This was also before Polanski was given his Oscar, when a large portion of Hollywood signed a petition in his favor and subsequently gave him a standing ovation. The things Tarantino said in 2003 would actually be quite common at the time.

http://www.indiewire.com/2009/09/over-100-in-film-community-sign-polanski-petition-55821/ - this list isn't even exhaustive.

Please. Nobody gets canceled. By "derailed," he might have to lay low for, like, three months until somebody gives him another show. If the heat is really bad, he might have to wait six.

He's not going to jail behind this, they aren't going to seize his assets, his fans aren't going to abandon him... in fact, not only are his fans not going to abandon him, they're probably already harassing her for trying to "ruin" his life. Point is, ain't nobody "derailing" shit.

So speaking from experience....

I've always been into nerdy shit but not to that level. However, I was a nerdy guy that never got girls in high school.

From my own experience (both with myself and watching others) nerdy guys never got girls growing up so when they start to get them when they get older they feel like they're owed something by girls because they never gave them the time of day before.

I luckily grew the fuck up really quick but I can say I had similar feelings in my early 20s. Unfortunately I have a friend that was also extremely nerdy and never got girls in high school or college and he has not grown up and is quickly turning into a full blown incel so I've had to cut ties.

There's just shitty people everywhere.

I'm old enough to remember Andy Dick as an alternative comedy darling in the mid/late 90s.  He was always part of the .Stiller/Odenkirk/Apatow group that everybody loved.  Yeah we were stupid in our late teens and early 20s

I saw Andy Dick live in 1999. I only wanted to see Kathy Griffin but it was a double bill so I stayed. I was 16. Her set was great, I considered leaving but decided to stay. Well, he was fucked up of course. He started the show by repeatedly yelling at the audience that we were all "faggots" and ended up flashing the crowd his dick during a bit where he had a plant come on stage and "rape" him. Since no one knew whether it was real or not, someone pulled a fire alarm to end the show. The next time Kathy Griffin came to town, years later during the era of My Life On The D-List, she ended the set by telling her whole side of that story which is bananas.

It's messed up that people are using her to discredit #metoo as a whole. This situation doesn't change the fact that there's still an obvious problem related to how society deals with sexual violence, and women are obviously impacted more by that. If anything, the people using this situation to silence victims prove that point.

Argento deserves to be put on trial, though.

It will never feel right to me to judge a lot of old movies (I'm talking 20 years or more, give or take) using modern standards. Of course many won't hold up or be fucked up or offensive through the eyes of modern society. Having watched Animal House and Fast Times At Ridgemont High not too long ago, it's absolutely insane those existed by current standards, but are such products of their time that it feels like wasted energy to worry about them in current context. The thoughts of promoting horrible things are 100% correct, but it doesn't feel like an argument worth starting because no shit.

Revenge of the Nerds is fucked up, though. That was gross and shouldn't have happened. I'd argue similarly the webcam stuff  in American Pie. There are absolutely lines.

Yeah, I thought of that when I watched a rerun a few months ago. I think the rest of his friends laughing off his behavior is what makes it even more problematic. Compare Barney to a character like Dennis on Always Sunny where the rest of the cast is absolutely terrified by him and point out how fucked up he is all the time.

I've been watching Cheers and loving it, but my god is Sam Malone a total creep watching through today's eyes. Ted Danson is great on it, but yeah hopefully that type of never going to take no for an answer guy sitcom character dies out.

I'm trying to think of them, and I'm sure I might see something in re-watches, but John Candy comedies like Summer Rental, Great Outdoors, Armed and Dangerous, and the Vacation movies. They showed the fathers more as the bumbling, lovable idiots. The only sexual "assault" I can think of in Summer Rental is when the hot neighbor forces John Candy to feel her boobs as she just bought them.

I haven’t seen a lot of HIMYM, but I did see the last episode shortly after it aired (because Bob Barron freaked out on Twitter about how bad it was and I felt I had to check it out). In it Barney becomes a father and in his final scene is seen yelling at young women to go home from the bar. So his big redemption as a character is that parenthood turns this creepy man who has spent his entire adult life using women for sex into a hypocritical social conservative. Those CBS values  :-\

https://news.avclub.com/cbs-paid-eliza-dushku-9-5-million-to-stay-silent-about-1831088361

Quote
The New York Times ran a new piece highlighting yet another instance of attitudes about sexual harassment and the toxic culture that enables it at CBS tonight, revealing that the network paid $9.5 million to actress Eliza Dushku in exchange for staying silent about the harassment she was allegedly subjected to on the set of the network’s legal drama Bull. Specifically, Dushku was paid not to talk about a number of objectionable comments made by star Michael Weatherly, who reportedly referred to Dushku as “Legs” in front of cast and crew, made frequent remarks about her appearance, and repeatedly ad-libbed “jokes” about “rape vans” and threesomes in reference to her character (the latter of which allegedly inspired members of the show’s crew to do the same).

CBS continues to sound like the worst place to work at.

This person is such scum.

So, she gave cover to a woman's assailant for a year, stood in front of the world and called that woman a liar, and co-opted a movement that her actions demonstrate that she doesn't actually believe in, for personal gain. And, now that the truth comes out, that she didn't even have the "insider information" that she claimed to have, she wants to slink in with a "Whoops, my bad!"?

I think it shows unbelievable grace and restraint on Aurora Perrineau's part that she hasn't paid someone to have Lena Dunham killed.

Its interesting he seems to be misplacing his anger towards "millennials" (for lack of a better term). I'm not sure what younger people had to do with him getting called out for being a predatory creep, unless he thinks older women didn't have a problem with it.

I'm not too upset with him making fun of the Parkland kids, though. He's made jokes about worse stuff in the past and I'm not sure that's intended to be the finished bit, I think he just threw that line in there to see what the reaction would be.  The gender identity stuff is just lazy, though. You can see a nugget of a joke in there somewhere, but he went the easy route, which is something he wouldn't have done a few years ago.

I hope this doesn't come off as me defending him, I really don't give a shit what happens to his career from here, but I did get a little annoyed at all the "maybe he was never really funny to begin with" sentiments I was reading.

Anthony Jeselnik makes jokes the day OF tragedies. Carlin frequently made jokes about school shootings and actively said he couldn't wait for Church shootings to start.

This doesn't defend Louis C.K. but I have to wonder if we're throwing anger at him because we know he's a real life dirty pervert and not the content of this bit.

I'm not sure if he's actually trying to attract a right-wing fanbase now that he knows any liberal fans will have abandoned him, but the transphobic stuff is indistinguishable from the shit dumb Trump-supporting uncles post on Facebook. "You identify as a _______? Well *I* identify as a ________!" is the single hackiest joke possible and seeing this once-great comic stoop that low is pretty pathetic. I listened to the whole set and there's some weird racial and homophobic stuff in there too, but there always was in his act. I'm not sure why we just assumed he was actually woke when he was casually dropping n-bombs for years, but in this current fascistic era of American governance telling a joke about how he called his doctor "you faggot, you old fuckin' Jewish fag" seems just a little too close to what the people who actually want to kill Jews and gays would say. That said, I'm not too upset about the Parkland stuff because while I admire their intentions, I also think David Hogg is an annoying little snot boy and if he ever arm wrestles that Kent State gun girl I hope he loses. Sorry not sorry

There's room to make jokes about the Parkland kids/school shooting survivors in general because tragedy CAN be funny, and I agree they can come off as annoying and sanctimonious at times (I mean they're teenagers in the limelight so big shock). The stuff CK is doing though like Kreese says just doesn't work and I don't know why anyone is surprised by any of this.

Humor is absolutely part of a healing and acceptance process. It takes away a lot of the power from the tragedy to be able to find something at least amusing to fight it with. I always figured that was common sense.

That said, this wasn't a good example. I feel kinda bad he can't let go and just hide out for years, living off his millions.

I don't know though, the slaughter of children is very delicate. Not saying NEVER MAKE FUN OF IT because, hey different people find humor in different things. But I think if you're gonna joke about kids being murdered it needs to be an interesting take on such a big tragedy. Just going "you pushed a fat kid in the way, you're no hero!" is like....ok?

The gender jokes are just par for the course when it comes to that kind of comedy. I would never laugh at a "joke" like that but I'm hardly the target audience for that kind of humor. I know a lot of people (on the right, mostly) can't get enough of TAKING DOWN THE LIBTARDS with BITING CRITICISM such as "hey if you IDENTIFY as a woman so do I so I'M A LESBIAN NOW!!" It doesn't offend me, just baffles me because...is that funny?

Slightly off-topic but it's like the Kevin Hart drama regarding the Oscars. His "joke" that got in him trouble was "if my son plays with dolls I'm gonna break them." What? Is that a joke or just toxic masculinity?

For the record, I didn’t find Louis CK’s leaked set funny. But he can sink on his own by not being funny. People don’t need to “freeze at what Downhome wrote” all the time.

Humor in general, yes. Humor that specifically targets someones trauma and PTSD? I dunno, something tells me that child abuse survivors aren't super fond of pedo jokes, so I'd imagine that someone who has survived gun violence isn't for their experience to be used as the butt of some shitstains stand-up routine.

Oh..

..and as per usual, Dandy can't keep my name off his keyboard. FOH, "bro". As if I am unaware of the existence of shock "humor." Just because something has "been around for a long time," doesn't mean people have to accept it in perpetuity.

In terms of "targeting." I think there's things that you can and can't do, of course. A huge problem is that shootings happen all the time now, and it's impossible to not ignore it or try to at lease ease the pain of it --for those who are stuck in no position other than watching-- and take some fear away. For me personally if I didn't try, however in vain it can be, to find at least SOME humor in the world right now, no matter how gallows it can be, it eases personal pain. But the whole idea of "what is okay to laugh at because some of it is too fucked up to too many people" is just an argument best left to those quitters under the Titanic right now.

I believe it has been five years or so since I mentioned you last, dubq. If you don’t want to be called out for being a hypocrite, don’t be a hypocrite. My “back button” comment was a reference to all the way back to the previous day when you told AA84 to hit the back button on his browser for seemingly not having the same opinion as you after merely stating that it is not a shock that a pro wrestler could be a piece of shit. You can’t have it both ways; if you tell someone else to hit the back button, you must do the same. Last I checked, Generalissimo Pinochet isn’t governing this forum.

And “as per usual,” you didn’t let missing the point get in the way of weighing in on something. The reason shock comedy has been around for a long time is because there is humor in it. Does everyone think it is funny? No. But if there wasn’t an audience for it, it would have died off immediately. I’m sure The Aristocrats is not your cup of tea. Lots of people like it and to act differently is absurd.

Louis CK is a piece of shit. No question. I have personally never followed him much at all, and this leaked set was not funny to me. But it could have been. And guess what? It would be okay for someone to think it was funny while others didn’t.

You think I have some feud with you or something, but I think I have mentioned you on about three occasions. All of them were pointing out how you were being a dick to other posters. I’m allowed to express my disappointment. If that doesn’t jive with you, you can use the back button on your browser.

Yeah but why are we and/or the victims to blame for his family's suffering? Why isn't that considered his fault? I'm sure his family does harbor more resentment towards the "media" and the victims for their suffering than their husband/father/son/brother/whatever and that's just another factor of victim-blaming culture that keeps people silent. Like if there's a girl out there that's just building the courage to come forward now she has Janeane fucking Garofolo telling her to shut up because his family has been through enough? Ok.

'fainted' lol

He's been pushing this for a while on Twitter. He's even gone so far as to say that he's already received death threats, and posted those online. HE had the police over to his home last week due to them. He's been very vocal about this stuff for decades, but people always laughed him off, including his interview with Barbara Walters.

I am aware of all that, but what i said was a reference to an old trtsm post.

Feldman also went to the hospital years ago over a stabbing that never happened. I’m sure he’s gone through some shit, but he’s not a very reliable narrator.
