Back on topic.
The big, as in HUGE problem, is this appears to be standard operating procedure for many entertainment businesses. Not just Hollywood, but modeling as well. Girls who say "no" are "difficult", and don't get jobs.
I have seen a few disgusting people, in articles and in comments sections, say "the ladies were not forced, they knew what they were getting into."
There are three problems with this.
There are numerous cases of rape or alleged rape in the entertainment business. Consider the American Apparel models, or consider Roman Polanski.
Many of the cases involved girls, or boys, who were under-age. Consider the two Coreys, one of whom is now dead. Corey Feldman says the two Coreys were repeatedly sexually assaulted when they were under 18.
Even in the case of men and women over 18, who were not raped, there is still a very big problem: it means that there are entire professions, which are sometimes quite lucrative, that are closed to ladies who keep their legs closed.
I do know a local family whose daughter, while in HS, had some offers for modeling, but they turned it down because they didn't want their daughter to get involved in such a disgusting business,
Going back several decades, one of my mother's friends was in the entertainment business. She was able to get her own daughter a few roles while a kid. That young lady put herself through an Ivy by acting and modeling, and later became a very well-known actress. I would guess that almost everyone reading this would recognize her name if I mentioned it. Not one of the huge stars, but an actress in a very well known TV show that is no longer on the air, plus a few movies that were based on the show. I hope this woman's mother was able to shield her from the exploitation, and I hope the rave reviews she got in the theater in NYC starting out made her a big enough name to get jobs without falling victim to exploitation.
The point is, sleeping with the boss should NEVER be a precondition for a career. It is morally wrong, and illegal.
But, for various reasons, people turned a blind eye to it for acting, singing, modeling, etc.
I hope this ends the practice, and that the certain powerful people at least lose their jobs, preferably their fortunes. Better still if they see some prison time. IF this rips apart entire industries, well, they deserved to be ripped apart.
