Well, at least I'm pretty sure there aren't any pictures.

Uumm, wait! I don't remember!

It’s beginning to look like there’s a “Weinstein effect”

(said in deep husky voiceover style voice)

"The Weinstein Effect. A Stark, Terrifying Vision of the Future, trying to come at a cinema near you, soon."


Civilisation is a race between disaster and education ...

The apparently justifiable slaughter continues.  Whew!

The media is now on zero-tolerance when it comes to their own. Just a whiff and -bam!- you're out.

Out of all the revaluations/accusations so far Keillor threw me the most.

For the Brits:  This guy is like a grandpa figure that has been doing a "small town" variety show since the 1970s -- pretty much the epitome of wholesome.

I've been watching this thread with interest.

I could post more than one #metoo ... from a range of inappropriate words and touches to being flashed by a stranger on a public sidewalk in broad daylight. That last happened when I was a teenager and at the time it never occurred to me to call the police or even to tell my parents.

>> It was just something that women dealt with all time. You know, it didn't raise eyebrows.

Yup.

Sounds like the equivalent of our (or can we give him back to Australia now?) Rolf Harris - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rolf_Harris

Reddit just posted what was supposed to be a funny, but it turned out being somewhat introspective.

Pepe Le Pew fired from Warner Bros Amid Alleged Sexual Harassment Allegations

Then someone brought up Johnny Bravo. Hoo boy!

.     Andrea Ramsey, a Democratic candidate for Congress, will drop out of the race after the Kansas City Star asked her about accusations in a 2005 lawsuit that she sexually harassed and retaliated against a male subordinate who said he had rejected her advances.

Multiple sources with knowledge of the case told The Star that the man reached a settlement with LabOne, the company where Ramsey was executive vice president of human resources. Court documents show that the man, Gary Funkhouser, and LabOne agreed to dismiss the case permanently after mediation in 2006.

I wonder if she was involved in sexual harrassment training at any point in her career.

Ha, maybe.  As far as I know this is the fist instance where a woman has been accused since the #metoo movement started.

>Why is this happening now

I'll add that The Handmaid's Tale was running (to rave reviews) during this. I think this series had a powerful effect on the pussyhat/metoo movement.
