Reply Subj: A few questions pertaining to the Weinstein fallout

    1. Does the recent allegations of sexual misconduct by Weinstein, Cosby, Berganza, Louis, etc change your opinion of "SJWs" and their perceived effects on the things we consume for entertainment?

    2. Does these allegations offer a new perspective into why there's a call for better representation of women in movies, videogames, comics, etc.?

    3. Do you think it's possible that some of the portrayals of women we see in movies, videogames, etc. are a product of the culture of industries that allowed these types of allegations to persist unchecked (assuming the allegations are true)?

It hasn't really changed much, because I always known it exists. These stories are really nothing new. We've heard them since the 40s. We're just now becoming intolerant of them. If anything it just makes me dig in my heels as a "SJW" supporter. We're hopefully getting these people on the ropes, so fight harder! Kudos "SJWs." We are turning the tide.

It's a bigger problem than just Hollywood... ahem, or Washington. It is, literally, everywhere. But yes, absolutely, our entertainment reflects the culture where this is tolerated. The industries aren't the only ones to blame. We are, as well.
