Harvey Weinstein

Harvey Weinstein is fired and condemned for sex harassment, but Trump does that and becomes head of Republican party and billionaire President. Interesting double standards. Will there be a movie about Weinstein?

I've never understood what makes a guy think touching himself and groping a woman will lead to a yes.

What are you talking about? It's the same standard. Wealthy, powerful, supergross guy gets away with decades of criminal behavior. Weinstein's time just ran out, the way it did for Ailes, O'Reilly, and Cosby.

A few subjects for further research: Money; Power; Cocaine; Millennia of Patriarchy; The Complete History of Punishments Given to Men Who Think Touching Themselves and Groping Women Will Lead to a "Yes"

You should start with that last one. It won't take long.

I realize that trying to apply logic to a criminal is dumb, but I will never understand why a person that (despite being a total schlub) undoubtedly has beautiful young women who would be with him voluntarily, why do you need to have the ones that don't want to be with you?

I guess that the power/ego thing can't be turned off. Hopefully he sees the inside of a jail cell for a good long time, but I am not optimistic.

He didn't care about getting to 'yes'.

Um, instead of running from 1st, to second, to third base, he went straight to home plate?

perhaps, then, there is something to the rumour that compulsively peeling the banana leads to insanity?

You'd think the guy could just bribe or buy someone to do him...

maybe he is out to prove something, like, for example, that he is not a big-time sheep or watermelon fucker or likes to shove light bulbs up his bum . . .

I think he's turned on by the power of being able to force his unwanted attentions on reluctant women. Kind of like, you know, a rapist.

at least once in 2015 the cops were working on trying to nail him too . . . his organisation and related enterprises sound like the true gall bladder of darkness and i would think lots of hollywood and media people had to have had at least a partial handle on what he was up to . . .
