usa today:
SAN FRANCISCO — Some women — and men — are mad at Twitter and they are not going to take it anymore.

They are calling for a one-day boycott of the social media service to protest the treatment of actress Rose McGowan, who had her account temporarily locked after a series of tweets about Harvey Weinstein's misconduct toward women, including her. McGowan settled a sexual harassment suit with Weinstein in 1997 for $100,000.

"TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME. THERE ARE POWERFUL FORCES AT WORK. BE MY VOICE," McGowan wrote on her Instagram page.....

Hmmmmm... I'm reading that she violated Twitter rules. Something about posting a phone number?

I think Trump may be the only person in NYC that hasn't already been lured to Weinstein's hotel suite under false pretenses.

Not to make light of the seriousness of sexual harassment/assault...

but so many aspects of the Harvey Weinstein story are so cliche they are comedy gold.

This bloated creep, mad with power, lures ingenues to his hotel room where he appears in a bathrobe, promising movie contracts in exchange for a "massage."

And the quote from Kate Bekinsale: “I was incredibly naive and young and it did not cross my mind that this older, unattractive man would expect me to have any sexual interest in him."

So, Kate... It would have been ok if you had been sexually harassed by a younger, attractive man ?!?!

i've only been marginally following the story.
this kind of crap bores the hell out of me.

somehow or other....it's all hillary's fault....(i haven't yet figured that one out.)

rose mcgowan (former gal pal of marilyn manson) is knee deep in the hoopla, shouting rape accusations from 20 years ago...
and now a twitter war will commence because ms. mcgowan can't handle the "terms of service"...

having said all that...i'll give rose the benefit of the doubt...weinstein is a well known pig...
and casting couch politics have been a known unknown since hollywood's golden age.
(lana turner wasn't "discovered" in a drug store.)

something doesn't ring true.
but here i go being a male chauvinist, sexist pig, apparently defending rape culture...when in reality i'm disgusted by the whole sordid mess.

this country needs an enema.

there's an awful lot of smoke for a fire weinstein denies:

the bbc:
Kate Beckinsale is the latest actress to come forward with allegations about sexual advances from movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.
The British actress issued a statement on Instagram in which she said she was greeted by the producer in a bathrobe when she went to a meeting with him when she was 17.
She said she said no to him professionally many times which "undoubtedly" harmed her career.
A string of actresses have come forward over the last week to accuse the movie mogul of sexual harassment or assault.

I find it hilarious that now the media climbs on Weinsteins back. His dallyings have been well known for many years.
