Previous Post

In a previous thread on Harvey Weinstein, I had noted that sexual harassment and assault was far more prevalent in the entertainment industry than just him, which is why it was hard for people to come forward. The more people who come forward however let's others feel like they can do the same and speak truth to power. Now the floodgates have been unleashed.

Louis C.K.'s behavior was utterly disgusting, but I do have to give him kudos in completely manning up and taking full responsibility, and he's the only one honest and brave enough to do it so far:

In contrast, Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore is doing the complete opposite and even trying to fund raise on the accusation four women have alleged against him:

Moore represents the evangelical vote and if evangelicals can't see through his hypocrisy, then they really have lost all critical thinking ability or are willing to embrace hypocrisy for the sake of an election.



When you hear a celebrity, say I am addressing my behaviour from something 20 odd years ago, you KNOW there is lots of other incidents out there.
