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?

Not at all. Especially since many of these people being found out were SJW's (at least as far as how they tried to portray themselves...Ex: Mr. Frankin)...are the ones being found guilty of this.

    2. Does these allegations offer a new perspective into why there's a call for better representation of women in movies, videogames, comics, etc.? effect whatsover. Nor should it...unless you are one that believes violence in comics and video games leads to turning children into psychopathic murderers, of which the evidence has shown otherwise.

    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)?

Some perhaps. What these people are doing is wrong and of course that can trickle into everything that they do. Couch casting has sadly been going on since movies began...its wrong, but sex is a driving force in humanities very existence to de-sexualize everything is also not the way to go either.

Sadly people just don't seem to know how to treat others with respect.

Why is it ok to blow someones head off and swear and show violence...but heaven forbid you see a boob and its suddenly terrible. Don't we have this a little backwards and repressed?
