Of course this doesn’t detract from real victims
What it does show is the danger of condemning people based merely in accusations, and believing all accusers are saints
The truth is we should wait for investigations, because often the situations are far more complicated than initially it seems
Take the Weinstein case
Now my gut feeling is that he is a scumbag and guilt
But Asia here was held up as a beacon of victim hood and moral integrity
Meanwhile she may have been sexually abusing a young man. If that is true, imagine being that man, who not only was sexually abused, but have to
watch all of your peers fawn over your abuser as a strong willed powerful fighter who was victimized
The other thing this shows is the hypocrisy of many people who profess to be against abuse whil commuting it (if the case is true)
I can understand the point of this thread as a form of information, but the slant your giving it makes no sense to me.
Weinstein purportedly took advantage of dozens of women (up to 80 accusations?) sexually. What sort of "investigations" are you expecting from 30
years ago? He'll possibly get convicted of the recent cases of rape, but no more than that.
Asia Argento supposedly (she paid him off with hush money, so it probably happened?) sexually assaulted an underage boy. That's horrible. And it is
useful information that it came to light. If this was a trend, hopefully it will motivate others to come forward, but that absolutely doesn't appear
to be the case here.
I'm not sure why you're drawing an equivalence? Do Asia Argentina's actions against this boy, if it turns out to be true, cancel out Weinstein's 80
separate accusations -and what is basically an industry in-joke about Weinstein getting women to sleep with him for work- somehow?
If you want to condemn Asia Argentina for this behaviour...go ahead?
If some people in the industry don't give her work because of it...yeah, ok?
Was anyone ever calling her a saint? Or a beacon of moral integrity? Is she less of a victim somehow? How is it hypocritical for her to call out her
abuser for abusing her because she also (lets again just assume the accusations against her are 100% true) abused someone?
What on earth has all this got to do with leftists or "SJWs"?
