Man. When Weinstein was accused, now everyone it seems like is being accused of sexual allegations. 0.0





It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?

Well accusing is one thing, proving is another.

I expect there will be a lot of lip service and showboating about this from the industry,


however that all being said, I do sincerely hope that the conspiracy of silence that has shielded so many is now sufficiently shattered. Hollywood eats its young but also protects its own, particularly the popular ones that know how to "play the game".

However the case against Weinstein looks to be far stronger then the one against Cosby.. Not saying Cosby is innocent or guilty just saying that his case is a lot harder to prove beyond a reasonable doubt.

Also I very bummed to hear that even George Takei has been accused.
