Any form of sexual harassment or sexual assault is absolutely despicable and is a true sign of something sincerely wrong with the guilty party.


But what truly concerns me, is the rising tides of a potential witch hunt.


As things stand, I do not believe for a single moment that Harvey Weinstein, or Bill Cosby for that matter could possibly get a fair trial.

What concerns me the most, is lack of actual proof. I have no doubt that either are actually guilty. However, just as with free speech, they deserve the same rights anyone else does. So, where are the rape kits? Where is the video, audio, or eyewitness testimony?

Without these things, it is strictly a "they said this, those over there said that" situation.


It is really quite simple. Without evidence, there is no guilt. It sucks big time. But, we cannot allow emotion to rule in this.

Instead....if you face any sort of harassment or assault as these women and men have.... frakking say something. Get a rape kit. Get proof.

And hold their feet to the damned fire.

I once read somewhere in a thread about how Howard Hughes tried to make a movie about the problems in Hollywood but got shut down.

He only survived because he was powerful in his own right.

You realize Rose McGowan, one of the victims, did sue him from a 1997 cause of abuse? She's bound by a non disclosure agreement after the fact but has alluded to him having raped her on social media.

Asia Argento, sadly felt responsible.

And so I felt responsible." It included audio of a police wiretap of another encounter with Weinstein, in which he attempted to coerce a model into entering his hotel room. The report also included testimony from Oscar winner Mira Sorvino and actress Rosanna Arquette, both of whom say they felt they were blocked from obtaining work as actresses because they had rejected Weinstein.

Sure he might be a fall guy for a bigger abuse ring in Hollywood but hes by far not innocent.

If there was a clear and defined agreement of what sexual harassment was. . .
Unfortunately, there is no agreement to define sexual harassment, but there are laws governing it?
That is where the difficulty lays.

Title 9 in higher education is another problem, as it provides protections without definition.

If there's no evidence, prosecutors will likely not go to trial. And they'll be cleaned out by civil suits.

By law she cannot disclose what was in the non-disclose agreement, or risks lawsuits from the other party.

the part that sickens me is hearing all these celebs talk about it like this was common knowledge in hollywood for years and each is trying to put more blame on another cause of some lesser of 2 evils argument. its just crazy and shows how screwed up that whole industry is. yet people will still adore some celeb cause of some fantasy created through pr agents and the media.

You know what folks.... a fair number of you have already proven my fears.


I've got marshmallows and sticks. Now it's only a matter of time for the bonfires to be lit.

There is a recent audio tape that may be presented in a suit from an Italian model. I don't remember her name. He grabbed her right in the pussy.

If Cosby couldn't get a fair trial he would have been convicted his first time around instead of a mistrial.

Witchhunts are a real problem, especially in a world which has Twitter, but they are being launched in all directions. Not just Hollywood.
