    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?


It doesn't change my personal opinion because I've always thought the term "SJW" is a lazy pejorative mostly used by those who aren't just against going overboard with political correctness but are actually against social justice. In other words, the term "SJW" is usually misapplied. As to those who misapply the term, I think THEY should change their opinion based on what we're seeing with all the sexual harassment cases.

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


It adds to the perspective that's already there for anyone who can see things fairly. For those who can't, it should help offer a new perspective.

    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)?


Definitely.
