I think for so many of us, unwanted advances, harassment, and worse are such a common life experience that it is like white noise. You barely notice it except for when it reaches the most invasive or threatening level.
This is part of why some women might not come forward right away. It isn't until looking back, from a safe distance and maturity that comes with time, that you realize how wrongly you were treated. In the moment, it is just "life" ... just another guy aggressively trying to get into your pants.
And here I’m not talking about rape or sexual harassment but our culture of the cool guy getting the fine babe.

I suspect that Harvey Weinstein has been outed in the way he has because his power had already diminished in the movie industry. I doubt if there will be any effort made to out anyone who is still powerful and near the beginning of their life of crime.

Sometimes I really wonder do woman realize the lustful nature of men.
Do they realize the affect they have on a man?
I say we force them to don apparel that would basically cover them from head to toe with only an eye slit. You can never be too cautious with females, saucy minxes that they are.
The Weinstein Company was in a financial crisis in 2009, but it "avoided bankruptcy with a painful debt and asset restructuring," according to The New York Times.
In 2010, the Walt Disney Company agreed to sell Miramax to an investor group for $660 million. The Weinsteins had attempted to regain control of Miramax but were unsuccessful, The Times reported.
