This whole frenzy today makes you wonder why it's being brought forward today.
Is Hollywood under attack?
Is somebody using this dirt for a reason?

I was talking to my wife about this last night.
While I do not doubt that Harassment and even rape and pedophilia runs rampant in Hollywood, and other institutions...but this thread is about Hollywood....I think there is something else going on.
I think people are jumping on the band wagon so as to be a part of "the cool kids victim club". It seems to be in fashion right now to be a member of the #metoo group, it is a badge of honor or status symbol. It also adds more media exposure for them and maybe even more money down the road.
Again, I do NOT condone those actions that have truly taken place by Weinstein or Spacey and anybody else. But I do think it has started to be more than just the truth coming out.
For example, I know Ashley Judd has been abused her whole life, and I truly feel for her...it was not fair to her at all. However, when they did the women's march the day after inauguration, she railed against Trump, who has never abused her, instead of coming out against Weinstein when she had the national platform to do so. In light of the Weinstein revelation and Ashley 's accusations after it came to light, it totally nullified that march as anything but political grandstanding, and actually mars the victims in actual assaults.
