Here is the thing....and all of this is with the caviate that anything can happen.. but I think most often people do what is logical (in their best
interest) relative to the knowledge and situation they are in..
A) Wouldn’t they POSSIBLY be willing to say he threatened them to help justify them making the decision to do him??? Since there were literally
women lined up outside begging to do him for the part, is the threatening necessary??
Now let’s say hypothetically he did not threaten them, just made the offer of tit for tat..
I don’t think that is criminal.. sexual harassment is civil.
I will say I have seen big inconsistencies there has been shady ness with a lot of these me too allegations..
B) I saw an interview with one of the main Cosby accusers. she claimed Cosby gave her a cup of coffee that was drugged.
She claims Cosby gave her the drink, insisting she drink. Then as soon as she took just a little sip, she instantly felt lightheaded...
That is not how drugs work.. ingested drugs take from 20 min to an hour to kick in..
Also, if she only took a sip and INSTANTLY felt lightheaded... there would have been enough in the cup to kill her if she took a big gulp..
The al Frankenstein allegations were a joke..
The trump “plane chic’s “ story was ridiculous..
Juanita broadricks story reads like a fan girls Eleanor fantasy and has no proof she has ever been in a room alone with Bill Clinton..

I am going to have to watch other interviews not included but the women it this movie don't even say he threatened them other than Roseanna Arquette
who I have trouble believing about anything and she was hardly not established like the others.
Bill Cosby could be some funny business but still drugging to rape being different. I had not followed the testimony on that but I should check it
Me Too has brought out a lot of questionable things but can also give a platform for dishonest agenda driven acts.
I just do not know how we reach the middle here with these issues.
Seems like we are always at one far end of the spectrum or the other.

I have no intention of watching the movie... so I cannot speak to the movie, how true it is or if it's the entire truth. As I understand it, there
are claims of legitimate rape being committed. That will need to be proven (or not) in a court of law -- not in a movie. And the fact that this
movie was produced and aired prior to the conclusion of legal proceedings against Weinstein tells me that it was never meant to be anything except
In the grand scheme of things, compared to the brutal and violent abuse so many women and girls have suffered -- even been killed -- what these women
experienced was nothing.
Other far more disturbing and horrific predators and their actions were also in the news -- Anthony Weiner, Jeffrey Epstein, NXIVM -- yet Hollywood
never gave them the same attention. Who would make a movie without knowing the end? Why???
I'm not angry at any woman who would call out Weinstein for being the lowlife that he is.
I am angry that real violence and brutality against women and girls is ignored or given lip service.
It's definitely exploitation. Is it outright rape? Probably not but close to it. Some of these people dedicate their lives to this one shot and he
damn well knows he's the gatekeeper. So straight up physical rape? Not technically. Mental/emotional rape. Most certainly. Mental/emotional rape
leading to penetration? Seems like that's the case.
Easier said than done. "grabbing someone's butt doesn't leave lifelong scars" when if it was a 4-year-old being grabbed by a grandparent? How vigorous
was the grab? Did it lead to other things? What lead up to the grab? How has this affected the mind of the victim?
Suddenly that bright red line becomes grayer and blurrier.
