I don't know about that. I said "Snowflakes, man" in response to what's being made about Momoa's old GoT-rape joke. It had nothing to do with Affleck's accusers.

Isn't it strange how this comes out just before JL is released....sounds like a conspiracy to me.

I sure hope this story doesn't keep people from going to see JL...we need good BO numbers.



Weeding this stuff out is not easy.
I know you see a lot of insanity here Lee, but on that scale, how has the last day been?

That I DID see, and what that guy said is clearly NOT okay.

Been wondering the same thing myself. Seems a lot of people's true colors are starting to show.

McGowan really shouldn't have done that. She has all my sympathy, but if that number was for someone she wanted to point her supports towards, releasing that kind of info can be incredibly dangerous. I hope that wasn't the case and this was just a technicality.

That is so much better....makes you sound like a saint. People complain about someone making "Rape" jokes (in today's society where there are major calls to end the "rape culture" talk and actions that people feel condone and encourage sexual harassment of women)...and your response is that they are "snowflakes". You are not making your comments sound better.

What stands out for me is how some people don't know what legally constitutes sexual assault, and that getting a charge to stick is hard in the first place.

I don't know if Weinstein is being charged. This doesn't appear to be a priority for law enforcement.

Now imagine if he was an 11 year-old black boy caught sharing marijuana.

On a scale of 1-10......11.

People are in multiple threads and forums discussing it. Everyone has an opinion but only a few are thinking before they post. For awhile there was a real mob mentality of believe every minor rumor and scream your disgust at it. There is still some that ignore facts and civility.

I wasn't trying to start a beef with Lee, my question was legit. It seems DC fans are coming under a lot of fire now, and the situation with Ben Affleck is akin to dumpsters being filled with kerosene...
Let's not forget the *real* victims in all this...the DC fans.

Next time you want to question a mod's 'generalizing', keep in mind all of the posts you don't see because we spend so much time deleting them from these threads. We see a lot more here than you.

This all comes from a culture of not valuing women as autonomous people. The entire education system needs an overhaul.

Toddlers need to be taught that their female friends aren't objects they win when they do well in school. And that their bodies aren't a zoo attraction. Just these two provisions would eliminate so much toxicity.

A combination of statutes of limitation, an army of expensive lawyers and friends in high places presumably.

Since the release of the New York Times story, I have seen posters here discuss their own experiences. Harrowing experiences. Seeing those stories you would hope would put this situation into perspective for those that might not get it. That it would become more acutely obvious that if you are making one of these "jokes" or downplaying what is being talked about here in general, there is a real chance you are doing that in the presence of someone who has had to suffer through these gross acts.

I think that the FBI just doesn't give a damn. They're concerned with drugs, smuggling, terrorism, that sort of thing. White collar crimes, sexual assault, etc don't get prosecuted nearly as much.

But do these women know the pain and suffering of a fanboy triggered by different opinion on a movie? /s

A broken criminal justice system and a sexist society.

Ironically Trump might just direct the FBI's focus on this.

Maybe it's a little early to claim that law enforcement doesn't care? They have to build a case first, go over all the info.

There is so much here. They'd have to check in on all these claims, see if they can even be prosecuted, gather evidence, etc. It is far more likely if anything happens, it will be like the Cosby situation. With one lone case, that is going to be hard to prosecute.

NYPD launches Harvey Weinstein investigation over alleged 2004 assault

http://ew.com/movies/2017/10/12/harv...tainmentweekly

Quote:
The NYPD is looking into claims that the embattled movie mogul sexually assaulted the victim in 2004, a police spokesperson tells PEOPLE.

Officials would not release additional information on the alleged assault or the investigation. However, Lucia Stoller, now Lucia Evans, told the The New Yorker that Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex on him in 2004.

Since this all happened I shared my experience here and saw other posters do it too. I shared mine hoping it will at least raise the awareness that you really don't know what members here have been through plus in this society really most women and many men have stories like that so when you see many women here on this board discussing the treatment of women and this case the decent thing is to abstain from at least making jokes and awful comments. And since that, yesterday someone made a joke I'd want to sexually assault someone and another member implied I would want the offenders in Hollywood to get away with it. I'm still browsing the thread but I'm abstaining from posting because this is just a bit much especially when the attacks are personally directed at me. There is a line of basic decency that has been crossed.

And DC fans, while I know many nice decent ones from this board had really reached their new lows yesterday when they attacked the women accusing Affleck of staying silent and groping them. To attack a woman who has been raped and tweet her a gif of violent sexual act or to make comments she must be crazy because she once wore a see-through dress to a party...you know I don't even know how to call that.
