For the last two days Hollywood has been reeling from the fact that ‘casting couch’ has more than one meaning like ‘you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours’, or ‘how much work are you willing to put in for this role?’
When it comes to movies, Wankstain is a fucking God. He’s like what Alan Sugar is to business, or what Jeremy Corbyn is to corduroy, and like everything else these days he’s polarised opinion more than abortion.
Everything is like fucking abortion now. Brexit: abortion, Trump: abortion, a fucking white and gold dress: abortion. There’s no middle ground anymore. It’s black and white. Right or wrong. It’s extreme. Think for yourselves.
If Weinstein did rape women and sexually assault others then yes, he should feel the full force of the law, but what happened to innocence before proven guilt? In this instance the smoke is billowing, but we can’t see the flames yet so we don’t know how big the fire is.
As long as people have been on this earth powerful men have been willing to exploit women sexually, and as long as those men have existed, there have been certain women who are ‘happy to oblige’ in exchange for what they want. In these cases who’s exploiting who?
I’m not saying all of Weinstein’s accusers are like that of course, I’m merely illustrating that it’s not, as I said, all so very black and white. If it were then why does a casting couch have so many connotations?
Many will say stupid things like “if this really happened then why didn’t people speak out years ago?”. Well that’s as simple as the person asking the fucking question. Fear. Weinstein is all powerful and can make or break a career in Hollywood, or see to it that you never work again. Or at least he could.
The women that have come forward are braver than you can imagine, risking everything from never working again to being shunned by the industry and everyone in it. Thankfully more came forward so they could support each other and be taken seriously.
What’s not cool is the fucking virtue signalling coming from every man and his dog, male stars in particular . This was clearly a very loose definition of a secret. If they were real men they’d have spoken well before the cat was out of the bag.
Theresa can fuck off as well. If you want to get outraged, look at the VIP and celebrity nonces a lot closer to home whom the government have protected for decades.
