Rampant and pervasive sexual abuse of boys and young men by men is a huge problem in Hollywood. This is according to actors and lawyers who are suddenly brave and speaking up in the wake of Kevin Spacey's problem of a claimed attempted sexual assault of a minor child actor.


Hollywood has a “rampant” and “pervasive” problem of men sexually abusing boys and young men, according to actors and lawyers who are speaking up about misconduct and harassment in the wake of an allegation against actor Kevin Spacey.
www.theguardian.com...


Taboo is what Alex Winters calls the sexual abuse subject. He was abused when he was a pre-teen, and says he doesn't know of any boys who haven't encountered the predatory behavior. He claims it is not safe.


“It’s a very taboo subject,” said Alex Winter, an actor and director who said he was sexually abused as a pre-teen child actor. “I don’t know of any boys in any pocket of the entertainment industry that do not encounter some form of predatory behavior. … It’s really not a safe environment.”

Spacey has been accused of making an unwanted sexual advance toward Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp, who says he was 14 years old.


Sexual harassment is a big problem says Tony Jaranilla who reps men in entertainment. The men are coerced in to sex or just assaulted and are afraid to speak out. The usual reasons rape victims don't speak out apply to men who are preyed on my the Hollywood homosexual sect.


“It’s a pervasive problem in Hollywood,” said Los Angeles attorney Toni Jaramilla, who has represented men in the entertainment industry in sexual harassment cases. She said that men can be coerced into sex or assaulted in professional contexts and are often afraid to speak out: “The common challenge is the fear of not being believed and the fear of having the situation turned around against them, to suggest that they are instigating it, or they are finding opportunities to sleep their way into a role.”

Thank god people are finally coming forward, it has been a long time coming and exposing the abusers is the only way to stop more victims from falling into their predatory hands.

It makes me sick to think about how many have been ignored, written off to protect people pocket book.

Lock each of these sick mofo's up, send them straight to general population and let karma sort them out.

Careful, we arent supposed to "bash paedos"

FWIW My cousin encountered this while starting out in reporting on Rugby matches for the AP when he lived in Australia. He was 17, and was cornered a few times over the year he worked for them on both sides of the Pacific.

Cameras turn them on or something is what he always said.

Considering Jimmy Saville/UK monarchy, the highest level of the Vatican, Franklin Cover Up, Dennis Hastert, Epstein and everyone on both sides of the isle, the revelations of p-gate, the Detroux Case, it would appear that this goes to the highest levels of virtually every power center.

Those that practice the dark arts, the true rulers, use these expendable puppets for their gain. They dupe the masses and consolidate power.

Now is the time they are to be exposed!

Let's hope that changes are actually made the reduce the chance that anyone, anytime, has to endure sexual abuse of any kind particularly pedophilia.

Seem that we are in for a rash of double tap to the back of the head suicides and fatal single car accidents.

This usually cools victims sudden bold truth telling.

It begins with people acknowledging it and not allow the MSM to cover up the circles in which these horrific crimes take place.

No one for any reason should be allowed to cover up sexual abuse of children, of teenagers, of adults, etc.

No one, anywhere at any time. Child sexual abuse should be a capital crime.

I absolutely agree and this is why I have a serious problem with the MSM.

Jimmy Saville is a case and point of how the powerful have their crimes covered for decades.

It is precisely what we are seeing about Pedowood as well.

Franklin Cover Up there is another.

Also the Vatican.

Not to forget the Detroux case.

Like I said acknowledgement is needed and sadly most people have written these crimes off as simply the ramblings of conspiracy nutters.

They even call the victims that.

The “Stand By Me” star wants to use crowd-sourced funds to produce a feature film focused on those who molested him as a kid — and he promises to name names with the project. Feldman has raised less than $200,000 to-date, but he maintains that “Corey’s Truth” must be a theatrical release. Many people — including the “Today” show’s Matt Lauer — don’t understand why.

Says who?

I've never seen one single person claim we shouldn't "bash pedos."

Most people (me included) believe we should string them up by their nethers.

To make the movie.
To defend himself legally from the repercussions.
To hire bodyguards to defend himself.
And to make some green 'cuz the guy is broke.

Im sorry, but I cant help but be suspicious of someones motive, to come forward 30 years after the event and cause a ruckus, now that they are nearly 50yo and probably broke, looking for their 15 minutes.
Spacey wasn't even in Hollywood at the time of this "Assault".
Even this accuser stated that Spacey came into the bedroom, where he was watching tv, was drunk, picked him up, put him on the bed, and the either laid or just rolled on him....then the 14yo got up and left?
How in the World is this a "Sexual Assault"?....if yo said that to anyone in the 1980s they would have laughed at you.

Once again, this is a person is trying to apply the current 2000+ weak, PC driven, victimise culture that now exists, that Never existed in the 70s/80s and before.......its all US Lawyer litigation mentality....as in what can I get out of this, and milk it?

What astounds me are all the people who come up to defend this guy....it was 30 years ago, does he even remember the fact correctly or has his "Perceptions" of the event changed, has his therapist planted "Ideas" into his head etc etc.

This is all wacko now.......And if everyone is getting their panties in a knot over this, Then Little Mickey J should have been put in prison for 50 years, decades ago!

You are all so soft now.....except when it come to nuclear war, then you're all rah rah...

Look, Tracey Lords was 13yo when she started in the porn industry......sure she told everyone she was 18yo, she had false ID, she was a teenage rebel.....she looked and acted 18.
Joan Jet and the Runaways were 15yo when they started in the Rock World......imagine what they ad to put themselves through...that they were quite aware of and knew they had to do to get ahead.....
The Beatles were teenagers when they when to Germany....George was 15 or so.....they had more sex, drugs and rock and roll, than any of you could even imagine.....all still while they were teenagers.
Jody Foster played a Hooker at 13yo....she knew, her parents knew....she wanted to be an actress.....she became one.
Brooke Sheilds was a 12yo and semi nude in the movies........big deal.

You go to a party with adults, you either party with drunk adults or you go home.......you don't wait 30 years to accuse someone who just, now happens, to be rich and famous.

This whole issue is getting ridiculous.....

Its going to take a while to raise the funds and then even more time to make the movie.
If six of "the most powerful men in Hollyweird" are going to be exposed, I fear that he may, indeed, expect repercussions.
Its an odd situation to put himself in.

I thought Feldman had already told the authorities but they didn't act.
He's pretty vulnerable right now.
If I had the info I wouldn't feel safe at all.

The 14 year old, Rapp was not drunk. Spacey was using that as a mitigating factor, just as he did with coming out gay right after Rapp exposed him.


When he arrived at Spacey's apartment, Rapp quickly realized that he was the only nonadult there — which, again, did not worry him, since he so often had found himself in similar situations as a child actor. The bigger issue: "I didn't know anyone," he said. "And I was quickly kind of bored."

Rapp said he ended up wandering into the bedroom, sitting on the edge of the bed, and watching TV well past midnight.
“I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually.”

At some point, Rapp said he turned to see Spacey standing at the bedroom door. And that's when he first realized that everyone else had left the party. They were alone.

“My memory was that I thought, Oh, everybody's gone. Well, yeah, I should probably go home,” Rapp said. Spacey, he recalled, “sort of stood in the doorway, kind of swaying. My impression when he came in the room was that he was drunk.” Rapp doesn't remember Spacey saying anything to him. Instead, Rapp said, “He picked me up like a groom picks up the bride over the threshold. But I don't, like, squirm away initially, because I'm like, 'What's going on?' And then he lays down on top of me.”

I implied Spacey was drunk, not Rapp.

That is how it was reported.

I recall Spacey or perhaps the rumours, about his sexuality, "Came out" after the movie "American Beauty" came out.

I was mildly surprised when I found out, as he played sort of macho roles up to that time.....

Still not regarded as a sexual assault to 1980s standards.
