The Women in Harvey Weinstein's Life

Post by bobevenson » Wed Oct 18, 2017 7:27 pm

All the women in Harvey Weinstein's life are high-priced call girls. No money ever exchanged hands, but I'll get
you that role, I'll make you a star! For the rest of us, it's the same thing, but at a lower price. If you want to find
out if a girl really likes you, take her out to dinner and suggest splitting the check.

I think you'll probably find it's more 'Don't sleep with me and you'll never work again'.

:lol: The thought of you actually leaving your house and getting a date.

Seems to be a fashion trend, 'outing' every past 'celebrity grope'. I find it difficult to take any pleasure in seeing a person publicly destroyed.

I'm not quite sure what it is you're going on about, but in many of the allegations it's a bit more than simple bribery.

I find it difficult caring about celebrities in general.

My main problem with this sort of Hollywood 'safety in numbers' approach is that it's really all just an attempt to avoid a defamation lawsuit, while also avoiding a tedious legal process. The end result is having the media do all the justice for them, because they themselves weren't willing to actually go to court over it - or even file a police report when it happened. Overall, I think this is a very toxic approach, and it also means that Weinstein is unlikely to face any legal repercussion for what he has done. It's really just another example of how Hollywood thinks they're above the law.

Perhaps it's also predicate to a larger issue, because I think Americans in general have a problem in reporting a crime when it actually occurs, and I wouldn't be surprised if many of them didn't even know how. But I don't think the celebrities have any excuse.

And what's so pathetic it's always 20 years ago, but why stop there, go back to his childhood!

They do. With Rolf Harris it was even more pathetic. He was obviously one of those annoying men who go around 'cuddling' women. Yes he's a sleaze, but I'm buggered if I would publicly destroy someone and his family over some sleazy act in my distant past that I'd forgotten about--that's how much it 'traumatised' me. It always reminds me of the Salem witch hysteria 'for some reason'.
It was a different era anyway, when men got away with groping women all the time. And judging by all the giggling that went on at my workplace it seemed the gropees didn't mind all that much either. These men are being judged by today's rigid and oppressive standards.

Yeah! 13, 14 and 15 year-old 'women'.

No, he would have judged as a nonce back then but back then no-one in power would believe such allegations or if they did they knew they'd not get a charge through.

Still not worth destroying a man and his family. Plus there was no crime, as much as the 'Daily Mail' would love everyone to believe there was. The English are weird with their witch hunts and 'beloved celebrities'. I mean Jimmy Saville? He had creepy perv written all over him, but that's hardly Rolf Harris' fault. After Ken was found not guilty a scapegoat was needed. I wonder if it's a coincidence that it was an Australian scapegoat?

Let's see, when do females start having their periods? Isn't that when Mother Nature declares them to be women?

It's against the law to have sex with a female under the age of sixteen in my country, it's also against the law to sexually harass them, but not surprised you agree with the fundamentalists bob but then you've never had a women eh! And I doubt you've got any sisters

Please, I was reacting to your sarcastic remark about when a female becomes a woman. Sorry, but nature trumps law.

So you'd have sex witha ten year-old would you bob? Not surprised how low you can go. I'd also not test that out in your Interweeb surfing if I was you nor in any sexual relationships(a highly unlikely event I'd admit). The term "woman" is a gender based one and as such the law trumps nature bobby.

Periods have nothing to do with emotional maturity. Girls are also having periods younger and younger due to the junk food and obesity epidemic, so I suppose the average age in the US must be about three or four by now.
