There's no doubt that actual sexual assault is a major issue in Hollywood, and in the wider world, and needs to be reported whenever it happens but it seems like a bit of a free for all at the moment. Obviously the victims need to be heard and believed but it's hard to shake the feeling that some of the accusations are a bit over the top. It's getting to the stage now where if a man asks a woman out he's running the risk of being branded as some sort of sexual deviant. Especially if that man is seen as being less than desirable. Take the Steven Seagal story as an example. He's supposed to have told a woman that he wanted to develop an off screen chemistry with her and unzipped his fly or something. Now, assuming that's true and that it really happened that way, I wonder would it be reported as sexual assault if someone like Brad Pitt or George Clooney did it. If it was a good looking, charasmatic guy would it be considered an equally offensive act than if it was an out of shape, ugly guy like Seagal? I've seen similar incidents first hand that would suggest not. Also, is what Seagal did really THAT bad anyway? Sure, it's not exactly gentleman-like but it's hardly what I'd call "an assault". I just think that the more minor incidents shouldn't be reported on with the same seriousness as Harvey Weinsteins alleged rape of Rose McGowan or other such events because if everything is considered a big deal, then nothing is.

I talked about this in another thread. People jump on the band wagon, and claims are just being taken at face value, even though we know and history has proven that people do lie about these things and also use these opportunities to get back at someone.

.

Actor Terry Crews brought up an unnamed producer that touched him. One cannot overlook the issue that a 'straight' man might take greater offense to a man touching him vs a woman. And if it was a woman he was attracted to and liked would he still see it as an assualt.

Louis C.K. Accused of Masturbating In Front of Women: NYT Report
by Greg Evans
November 9, 2017



Comic, actor and producer Louis C.K. is the latest star to be accused of sexual misconduct. An expected expose in The New York Times has just landed, and the story includes numerous allegations that C.K. masturbated in front of unsuspecting women.

Now,” writes The Times, “after years of unsubstantiated rumors about Louis C.K. masturbating in front of associates, women are coming forward to describe what they experienced. Even amid the current burst of sexual misconduct accusations against powerful men, the stories about Louis C.K. stand out because he has so few equals in comedy.





The article starts with a 2002 incident in which a Chicago comedy duo Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, performing at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colo., were invited to hang out with C.K. in his hotel room.

He was a comedian they admired,” The Times writes. “The women would be together. His intentions seemed collegial. As soon as they sat down in his room, still wrapped in their winter jackets and hats, Louis C.K. asked if he could take out his penis, the women said.

They thought it was a joke and laughed it off. And then he really did it,” Ms. Goodman said in an interview with The New York Times. “He proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating.





Other women making similar accusations in The Times story include Abby Schachner, comedian Rebecca Corry and a fifth woman who spoke on condition of anonymity to protect her family’s privacy.

The Times reports that C.K.’s publicist Lewis Kay said the comedian would not respond to the article.

Of course not. There lies all the difference between a consensual relation and a non-consensual one.

Jeremy Piven Issues Statement on "Fabricated" Allegations: "I Would Never Force Myself on a Woman"

Jeremy Piven issued a lengthy statement Thursday vehemently denying all accusations of sexual assault.

The actor, who has been accused of assault by three women, called the claims "absolutelyand completely fabricated" in a message posted to his Twitter account.

"I would never force myself on a woman. Period," Piven wrote, adding that he has offered to take a polygraph to "support my innocence" in cooperation with ongoing investigations.

"What I am not able to do is speculate as to the motivations of these women. As a human being I feel compassion for the victims of such acts, but I am perplexed as to the misdirection of anger andaccusations against me and hope they do not detract from the stories that should be heard," his message continued.

Piven's statement comes just after a third woman came forward to accuse him of sexually assaulting her in 2003 during a meeting at the Trump International Hotel and Tower.

"He jumped on top of me. I tried to push him off, and he forced me to the ground," advertising executive Tiffany Bacon Scourby told People. She claimed that Piven exposed his genitals and rubbed against her body until he climaxed in a detailed account to the publication.

Actress Ariane Bellamar has also alleged the actor groped her on the set of Entourage. CBS announced Oct. 31 that the network is currently looking into the allegations against Piven, who currently stars in Wisdom of the Crowd on the network.

The Entourage star condemned the media for printing allegations "as facts" and putting lives of men in danger "without a hearing, due process or evidence."

He added, "I hope we can give people the benefit of a doubt before we rush to judgment. Continuing to tear each other down and destroy careers based on mere allegations is not productive on any level. I hope we can use this moment to begin a constructive dialogue on these issues, which are real and need to be addressed."

GOP's Roy Moore pushed to quit Senate race after accusation he molested 14-year-old girl

https://www.msn.com/en-us...spartanntp

Republicans' lock on an Alabama seat in the U.S. Senate was thrown into doubt Thursday when the party's religious-right candidate was accused of initiating a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32.

The explosive allegation, in a Washington Post report, led Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and other Senate Republicans to call on Roy Moore to abandon his candidacy in the Dec. 12 special election — if the charge is true.

Moore, 70, a former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, called the accusation "completely false."

Nonetheless, a seat long viewed as safely Republican was suddenly looking less so. At a time when Republicans hold a narrow 52-seat majority in the Senate, GOP leaders were alarmed, all the more so after the party was thrashed in elections on Tuesday.

"They cannot afford to lose this," said Jennifer Duffy, senior editor at the nonpartisan Cook Political Report.

Moore, whose open bigotry has embarrassed Republicans in less conservative parts of the country, was never warmly embraced by national GOP leaders. The Post report came amid a burst of sexual harassment and assault allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and other prominent men in entertainment, business, politics and the news media.

Leigh Corfman, now 53, told the Post that Moore first approached her when she was sitting with her mother on a bench outside an Alabama courtroom down the hall from his office.

Moore got her phone number and, days later, took her on a 30-minute drive to his home in the woods, where he kissed her and told her she was pretty, according to Corfman.

On a second visit, he took off her shirt and pants, stripped to his underwear, touched her over her bra and underpants, and guided her hand to touch his crotch, she told the Post.

She said she asked him to take her home, and he did.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., called the allegations against Moore "disqualifying."

"He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of," McCain said on Twitter.

It is too late for Moore to legally withdraw from the Senate race. The ballots are already printed, and many absentee voters have already submitted theirs.

Republicans were scrambling to figure out whether Sen. Luther Strange, who now holds the seat, could run a viable campaign as a write-in candidate against Moore's Democratic rival, Doug Jones.

Strange, who was appointed to the seat to replace Sen. Jeff Sessions when President Donald Trump named Sessions U.S. attorney general, lost the Republican primary to Moore.

On Capitol Hill, Strange told reporters that the Post report was "very, very disturbing." He ignored a question on whether he might launch a write-in campaign.

Three other women told the Post that Moore, when he was in his early 30s, pursued them when they were between 16 and 18 years old, but never forced sex on them. The age of consent for sex under Alabama law is 16, as it was at the time of the alleged incidents.

None of the women came forward to the Post. A reporter for the newspaper heard allegations that Moore had sought relationships with teenage girls, and the Post subsequently found and interviewed the four women.

Moore told the Post in a written statement: "These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and The Washington Post on this campaign."

Moore has run as a firebrand stressing cultural appeals. He lamented "the awful calamity of abortion and sodomy and perverse behavior and murders and shootings and road rage" as "a punishment inflicted upon us for our presumptuous sins."

He has also referred to Native Americans and Asian Americans as "reds and yellows."

Moore was ousted from the Alabama Supreme Court in 2003 for defying a federal order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from a state courthouse. Voters elected him chief justice again in 2012, but he was suspended for refusing to follow the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage. He later resigned.

In Alabama, supporters came to Moore's defense. State Auditor Jim Zeigler invoked the Bible when he told The Washington Examiner: "Take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus."

"There's just nothing immoral or illegal here," he said. "Maybe just a little bit unusual."

Now there are at least 5 and he apologized to some of them later on so he's pretty screwed. HBO dropped him. So disappointing. Guess some of his stuff that I laughed at really wasn't funny.

These cases aren't all equal - Louie's behaviour sounds foolish, but it seems he only touched himself. It's a misdemeanour. The accusations against him are a far cry from some of these other accusations against other people involving rape.

HBO instantly removing all his specials seems a bit over the top. Have all films that Harvey Weinstein worked on been censured?

To clarify, I did not say all these cases were equal.
There is a masturbation scene in I Love You Daddy, the scrapped film about a 17 yr old girl in a relationship with a 68 yr old man. I do not care what the legal charge will or won't be. I am turned off to Louie for now. Plenty of other great comedians to watch.

As far as Weinstein's projects, I don't know. However, there are now 60+ women alleging sexual abuse and rape, also cover-up schemes. Dude is going down forever, even if he never goes to jail.

In Alabama, supporters came to Moore's defense. State Auditor Jim Zeigler invoked the Bible when he told The Washington Examiner: "Take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus."

"There's just nothing immoral or illegal here," he said. "Maybe just a little bit unusual."

Or maybe just grasping at straws.

Dunno where to begin with that graphic It makes no sense.


Age?

But it clearly indicates percentage and type of relationship to victim


I was hoping this was a thread where we could all harass EACH OTHER and get it out of our system!

I would like to echo your sentiment. The chart is confusing and the font used in the text above the chart is awful, wonder where this was sourced? And yes, Age???
And (first rape only)????

George Takei accused of attempting to rape male model in 1981.

http://www.hollywoodrepor...81-1056698



Here is an extremely NSFW video of George stroking a young man on Howard Stern. watch here What happened on the show was clearly and audibly consensual, but it's hard not to notice predatory tendencies in him. Here's a gif for those who don't want to watch a long video, again it's extremely NSFW view here

And YET. ...he was BEING WANKED ON A LIVE TELEVISION FEED THAT HE KNEW OF.

Please tell me this isn't being used in any accusatory fashion. People in the 90's (*much like women who have BECOME EMPOWERED BY TAKING MYRIAD DICKS IN THE MOUTH, VAGINAL CAVITY AND ANUS these days) would DO ANYTHING for a moment's notoriety.

This was likely pre internet omnipresence.


The guy is gay. He likes dick. He sucks dick, it satisfies his sexual whimsy. Leave Takei alone.


I think this Hollywood crap is the result of threatening and affidavits against Weinstein.

Sure he's a scumbag, but FOR SURE these women mostly know and knew what they were doing for these roles.

Those photos that leaked of Jennifer Lawrence
?


I'LL BET THEY WERE SHOPPED AROUND as COMMON FILES to utilize for socializing and sexualizing her TO BE RELEVANT among others. She didn't look the same age.

She probably sent these (*with likely approval of a mother etc) to producers, it's what happens in los Angeles.

I think Weinstein is probably throwing people under the bus and this is the result after no fear of reprisals.


If Hollywood reversed this thing, it'd be HOW MANY GUYS DID so and so blow to land this film?

Now women's lib has twisted it's noble intentions and elevated hookers and fame whores to the name of "respectability"

I hope DISTINCTIONS ARE MADE to separate these guys with unhealthy bit legal appetites from abusive abuse of power inducements and indictments. (*thank you auto correct for misspelling INDICTMENTS: because many of these things are done as INDUCEMENTS....don't kid yourselves.


There are stories that John Wayne STARTED his career on the backbone of sucking dick....i wish THAT ONE would get around to all these "purist" dark hate assholes who celebrate the phoney career of that hack actor in mostly racist political agenda roles

As jjhunsecker pointed out in another thread in P&R - according to any church, wasn't Jesus a VIRGIN birth?

Kick the old-school joints. For the true funk soldiers.

Why should Takei be left alone?


WTF? Now women's lib has twisted it and elevated hookers and fame whores? Give me an f'n break. This is not only encompassing women, but men and children too.

Seems like you are doing an awful lot of victim blaming. That's how it always goes, blame the victim and never the perps.
