Alcoholism doesn’t > pedophilia

“We will be happy to perform our play in its entirety on stage at the Old Vic.”

Loved the Shakespeare. I must speak.

I love how they’re trying to contain it to Hollywood.
On the other hand, I love TayTay’s replica theory video more than anyone.
Silicon Valley? Banking/Finance? Modelling? How low can you go?

This is one of many – predators – and industries.

It’s disturbing they, the lay public, seem to care more when men were the victims than the army of Weinstein victims. I hope it’s because of the minor element but most predators, even hetero, have a flexible view of consent.

I thought you’d like my thoughts before I go suspiciously quiet again.
All this work makes me hungry, I forget where I hide my snacks like a god damn squirrel.

Be professional at work, we’re all human. You can be a dick on your private time.

Clue: a rule among many Hollywood couples is “Gay doesn’t count.”

“Why don’t women defend themselves?”

Well, in most countries you banned guns and even most knives.
Considering we have half the upper body strength at best, we’re going to need something extra.

Then there’s hatpin panic.

At the time, men carried around swords, knives, batons, daggers and drugs.
Fair fighters.

“violent assaults” that’s legally called self defense, m8

And without a flash of leg, breast or arm in sight, they still tried the ‘be less attractive’ tactic. Extraordinary. Well, with growing obesity rates, I guess women finally listened. Men are never happy.

If women get raped in countries that dress in hijab, I don’t think it’s really what she’s wearing rather than being guilty of Possession of Vagene.

Lust is no reason to attack anyone. The law used to reflect this better.

And if it isn’t sexual, or intended, abusively, to humiliate (sadism) then I would pay a small gang of raging poofs to follow that same man around for days doing exactly the same things.

You should be flattered! It’s a compliment! It’s a joke!

It’s like if a man gets kicked in the balls.

What were you wearing? Did you provoke them?

Well, maybe you should’ve been wearing a cup, you were basically asking for it!

Ask rapists not to rape? Ask ball-kickers not to kick!

Except even that doesn’t work because no bra – your nipples were showing, bra – too perky, self-control of a baby.
They say women complain about men but men always blame us for their lust. …It’s literally in your head, don’t be hysterical. Isn’t it special snowflake to ask an entire sex to un-develop their secondary characteristics because you refuse to stop looking?

I find it amazing men walk around topless and somehow women have the masculine reserve not to grope their tits.
It’s almost like desires don’t trepass on rights, autonomy is a human fact and any form of physical entitlement is repulsive (money, body, attention).

Cate Blanchett, goddess of style

http://www.elleuk.com/life-and-culture/culture/articles/a39520/cate-blanchett-on-women-dressing-sexy/

I just love her so much.

“For me, the true icons of style are always those women who’ve been utterly themselves without apology, whose physical presence and their aesthetic is really integrated in a non self-conscious way into part of who they are, and women who know how they look is not all of who they are, but just an extension of that. It’s about women who feel free to wear what they want when they want and how they want to wear it. We all like looking sexy, but it doesn’t mean we want to f*ck you.

It’s an expression, it has literally nothing to do with men.
Women do fashion for themselves and possibly other women. Maybe.

It’s intrasexual competition, the men don’t even need to be present.
It’s like our gym selfies. Bad example but you really want to be superior to the other men, don’t you?

Do you think men can discern a pair of Jimmy Choos on sight?
Well, not the straight ones!

The ones who’d notice? …I don’t think attracting them is gonna work…

It’s the plot twist to our films because we all get it and you don’t. So much for airhead flicking through Vogue, huh? Visual language and symbology should technically be the male specialty. However, we care about nest-building. That’s why. Men pimp out cars and buy new tools. Same thing.

If men want us to get presumptive and judgy about your sartorial self-expressions then fine, but you wouldn’t like that Choo on the other foot. You complained about the joke about the shoes in SATC literally years ago.* Men are more touchy on the way they dress than the bulk of women, maybe because we’re used to hemline discussions from Kindergarten.

It’s catch 22, we can’t win.

If we dress nice, we like ourselves or are we vain or do we hate ourselves? The invitation to harassment thing is silly, and doesn’t take note of how predators work: they look for insecurity.

If we give up, we’re somehow less of a woman, depressed, crazy and proud of how we look without makeup (like a man). It’s the most ridiculous reasoning, the circuitous bitchiness that personalizes a choice we all must make, since we legally must wear clothes and shops only stock a certain price range and style type. It isn’t about you, it’s nothing to do with observers. Yet you are part of this system and sending signals. Why do ‘sexy men’ go topless? That’s how gay men like them, not women. Must we presume any man in a nice suit is a slut?

This film was a god-damn masterpiece.

Even nuns do fashion. It’s the feminine thing to do. We’re not the sex evolved to present, we’re the sex that selects. Read a bloody book before you prattle on being wrong about evolution.

*It was funny because men are generally clueless about the messages they give out (signals) and expect us not to pick up on them because they don’t care. Yes, we can tell you don’t care. However, you are the sex that should care so it’s funny. You should care because your power is only in asking us out. The rest is us. Insulting us and what we like and our gender role as selective is just ludicrously funny.

If you want to date someone with male psychology, you gay.

It isn’t about the cost of shoes, it’s the choice. If you have bad taste and decision-making, we don’t like you. Similarly, a man who actually takes another man’s style. We can’t stand those, they’re the worst. It’s like implants on a woman.

Showbiz creeps on warning

http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/la-en-mn-harvey-weinstein-industry-sexism-20171012-story.html

If you’re a woman and you bravely speak out about this kind of awful conduct, it’s guaranteed that a chorus of male naysayers will lecture you, belittle you and call you a liar. If you have the stomach for it, simply do a Twitter search, plugging in the names of Weinstein’s accusers. The hatred is sickening.

Rose McGowan is many things, a liar is not one of them.

When Meryl Streep issued a statement calling Weinstein’s behavior inexcusable and saying she wasn’t aware of the offenses, she was derided for acting too late and castigated for claiming not to know. “Meryl Streep’s statement is a self-serving exoneration of Hollywood,” a Daily Beast editor huffed on social media.

http://www.vulture.com/2012/02/see-meryl-streep-the-red-carpets-most-notorious-kissing-bandit.html
She had a nerve to start on Trump for his advances.

Here’s the thing: This isn’t about Meryl Streep. Or Ashley Judd. Or Rose McGowan. Or Asia Argento. Or Kate Beckinsale. Or any of the other women who have called out Weinstein and the industry’s mistreatment of women.

It’s about Harvey Weinstein and the countless men like him in the entertainment industry. It’s about systemic sexism. It’s about the criminal abuse of power. It’s about sexual assault. It’s about enabling and shielding predators with silence and shrugs. It’s about leading someone to believe you’re interested in them as a human being, as was the case with Weinstein and television reporter Lauren Sivan, and then, minutes later, unzipping your pants, masturbating and ejaculating into a potted plant.

I’ve heard worse, tbh.

If you’re a man, you simply take it for granted that you won’t have to watch someone spill his seed in a succulent. The first time I met Weinstein was also at a restaurant, along with my colleague at the time, film critic Bob Strauss. Weinstein’s first wife, Eve, joined us. His fly stayed closed.

This line.

The company had many lean years when it survived on a line of credit of about $25 million, according to one person with knowledge of the situation.

After Walt Disney Co. acquired Miramax in 1993, the brothers had access to more money and the staff eventually grew to a few hundred, with offices opening in Los Angeles and London.

Success only exacerbated Harvey Weinstein’s anger issues and need for industry recognition. “Things really took a turn for the worse around the time of ‘The English Patient,’” said one former Miramax executive who worked for the company for several years in the ’90s.

nytimes.com/2017/10/08/business/media/harvey-weinstein-harassment-hollywood.html

While the volcanic Mr. Weinstein is reviled — privately — by wide swaths of the entertainment industry, he also has a lot of friends. One producer who has worked repeatedly with Mr. Weinstein said that he wasn’t speaking out because “I happen to think the world of the guy.”

Pass the bucket.

Mr. Weinstein made a lot of careers, starting at Miramax in the 1990s and then at the Weinstein Company, which was founded in 2005. Matt Damon and Ben Affleck might not be stars without “Good Will Hunting,” released by Miramax in 1997. Quentin Tarantino can credit Mr. Weinstein with getting “Pulp Fiction” and “Kill Bill” into theaters. Gwyneth Paltrow thanked Mr. Weinstein and Miramax for “their undying support of me,” when she accepted the best actress trophy for “Shakespeare in Love” at the 1999 Academy Awards.

Lechery selfies

It’s like Twilight Zone to hear ‘traditional men’ justify this. Especially ones with bad experiences at the hands of the rarer lecherous woman. Nobody should be lewd and nobody deserves to be targeted. No excuses!

Did this happen in your precious 50s?

Hell, in the 1850s he’d have been horse-whipped!

Why do they think women wear headphones everywhere now?

This just a coincidence?

We don’t call you fat or hot or whatever, keep your mouth shut in public. Babies manage this.

God knows the comments if she made an effort with her appearance. Note the shit-tier quality of the harassers. Good men never do this.

Empathy in dating women

Higher EQ, maybe listen.

Guys, Here’s What It’s Actually Like To Be A Woman

Plenty of this is factually false like calling hook-ups “short term mating” to feel less like a manwhore, when that term refers to producing children, from a brief courtship, then abandonment and nothing else. Hence the mating part. It also assumes a man can understand women when you’d never see this article written the other way around, women are too sensitive to be that obnoxious. However, the physical risk is medical and true. Anyway, the fact it exists shows up a huge problem men used to understand: modern men lack empathy. They’re broken on it, defective in feeling and displaying it. They don’t even care for their country, family, one another or themselves. There’s a general callousness. It doesn’t come from women.

Minor note: Scientific misogyny is actually worse, because it deceives (everyone). Using big words and bluffing the findings won’t make you right. We still don’t live in that world. Anyone saying it’s easy doesn’t understand.

Women don’t really discuss their everyday problems because they are so common.

Either we expect to get disbelieved, told we should adopt male feelings (we’re not gay and that’s actually a good category argument for mansplaining) or the ever-present fear of harm. Not just physical harm but reputation damage (men gossip and it is vindictive), emotional harm from insults because broflake throws a mantrum and can’t handle rejection, those sort of things.

Confidence isn’t what they want, they want to act conceited and have everyone roll out the red carpet for their entitled ass. It doesn’t happen, narcissistic rage does. Do you want to be on the receiving end of that, for the crime of having a nice ass?

If it’s so scary to talk to the opposite sex (no), you wouldn’t do it. Nobody is forcing you. That’s your gender role and your personal expectations, nothing to do with women. Don’t blame us. We don’t want strangers coming up to us, and in my culture it used to be partially illegal and socially deeply frowned upon. Edwardian women used to be able to beat men with umbrellas for insulting our dignity, there was one newspaper clipping, and they’d frequently wear those gigantic hat pins to stab men on the Transport who got too fruity. Self-defence, legal as a gun should be.

The expectation women should think like men and men are objectively correct on the wholly subjective subject of feelings (not to mention another autonomous human being’s, the definition of possessive) is the reason a lot of those dating guru types are forever alone. Not just single but actively repellent. It’s gaslighting, like the friendzone fraud who keep trying to repeat until she gives in: you want me, I’m best for you, you’ll never do better. Well, that’s her decision and considering you only want her body, you’re averse to putting a ring on it and all you wanna do is bad things to it, you are totally wrong on all counts.

Women don’t work like that.

Again, I have to painstakingly explain this every time the subject of women comes up, you cannot ask a man how women think and assume he’s correct, you can’t even do that with a single woman, there’s a range of normal. Anecdotal fallacy, please stop.

Women don’t work like that.

They are not the same.

This is good, this is fine, this is biological.

Yet the idiots claim women are just as lustful as men, if not more (ignore the rarity of male hookers) and cannot be trusted (look at abuse and crime stats, just look).

With exceptional cognitive dissonance, they go on to say women are aliens and need to be treated in various subhuman ways because it isn’t abuse if they secretly like it, according to the abuser?

On a purely intellectual and logical basis, they are full of shit.
That’s the mindset and behaviour of a misogynist (and yes, the sexes reverse).
Simplest explanation? Occam’s Razor?
The men who are bad with women never consider the fact the entire sex is seeing them clearly and they are in fact bad. Bad prospects, bad at being men and bad suitors. We evolved for this, we evolved to spot this and swerve. All that shit you complain about, the coldness to a total stranger, lying about having a boyfriend, fake numbers and names, the flaking, it’s to get enough distance so by the time the rejection kicks in you can’t kick us. This is good and sensible and right, you’re a spoiled entitled brat if you expect random women to just trust you, randomly. Trust takes years to develop. Instead they say whatever’s convenient to their feelings (actually ego, they don’t really have feelings that aren’t self involved), because the probability of getting punched by a man you rejected (it happens) is totally the same as hearing a word you needed to hear a long time ago and will never take for an answer.

If you don’t respect no, you’ll never hear a real Yes.

This is your fault, as instigator and then disrespecting the etiquette involved in trying to chat someone up.

In an era of acid attacks for rejection and shootings for pathetic scum like Elliot, women are right to avoid men until further notice. Nobody is entitled to approval. Nobody is entitled to respect, but in public, there is a line, there is a wall everybody deserves to be respected, the perimeter of personal space.

Women approaching other women in public is weird and even that isn’t sexual. We made it illegal for charity workers to harass us in public so no, Nice Guy act won’t work.

Women are not like porn. Porn stars themselves need to be paid to act like that. Even they aren’t like that. You’d think this is obvious, but no.

They never treat men like dirt by the way, because they know they’d get hit if they talked all that shit.

If women catch onto this intellectually, there’s apparently something wrong with us.

Nope, you all look dumb, and it’s nothing to do with us. Stop acting black and pull your pants up.
They never mention all those workplace deaths are typically hubris.
Better known as vainglory.

Look at the long term mate choice studies.
What do women want? Empathy. (Search terms conscientiousness and agreeableness, yes, ALL women, huge studies).

What do you refuse to develop? Empathy. You have only yourselves to blame and no, a ‘condition’ doesn’t change the facts. You can develop coping mechanisms to be considerate, you just don’t want to, you don’t see the point. Aspergers for example, is about as bad as sociopathy. We don’t have to sign up for that. You are not a child to mind. You need the basics down.

What do people have in scant amounts for you? Empathy. They can sense you don’t give a shit about them so why bother? It’s the golden rule, not that you’re smart enough to see the flipside, making rape jokes and wondering why nobody trusts you don’t spike your drinks.

Update: See this guy?

https://www.indy100.com/article/woman-summed-up-why-men-never-understand-female-twitter-flowers-address-7987681

Don’t be this guy. The one pretending a creepy man is just being ‘nice’.
Why are the dumbest men so cocky? What are you feeding them America?

The one completely missing the point that stalkers can and do rape and kill. A gay man should’ve asked for comparison.

Which causes more damage in society, the errant pen or the stupid penis?
