It's not just Weinstein now, many other Hollywood figures are being exposed as sexual abusers. Today it's Louis CK, who has long been a liberal darling despite years of rumors of this kind of behavior, but who has finally been exposed in a thorough piece from the New York Times. Tomorrow, who knows? I'm sure this is far from over. It's sad that Hollywood is so full of abusers, but I couldn't be happier that finally people are paying attention and doing something about it.
I took DS (age 5) to see Arrietty today. Maybe it's because I haven't been to movies in a long time but I was shocked at the level of violence and sexism in the previews. I tried to remember as much as I can. It wasn't until I had a little kid next to me flinching every time someone was mean to someone else that I really noticed. It was just one thing after another. Some of these - like Madagascar 3 - just appeared to be a series of violent and sexist jokes strung one after another. Sorry if this is incoherent but I am BOTHERED. The Lab Rats (Disney XD Show) - I don't remember the specifics although it was overall very dumb Brave - "A LADY enjoys elegant pursuits" The Lorax - Person 1: "You wouldn't hit a woman!" Lorax: "That was a woman?" [cue laughter] Mirror Mirror - Various set pieces involving the importance of beauty - "Those aren't wrinkles!" "The prince will marry whoever is fairest" etc. Madagascar 3 - Scene 1: "You pillow fight like a bunch of little girls!" Scene 2: "I don't trust lion. He is too big and glossy. He is not lion. He is lioness." [cue laughter] Madagascar 3 also featured a scene where one character violently slaps another in the face over and over. Pretty much the only preview that wasn't totally offensive was the Chimpanzee documentary. Brave gets a bit of a pass since it appears to be a movie about overcoming sexist traditions - but that wasn't apparent to a 5 yr old. He just saw sexism. Ugh. Arrietty otoh was totally sweet. Highly recommended.
hollywoodilluminati.com/2012/02/06/madonnas-nfl-satanic-ritual-disguised-in-the-half-time-show/ This is so ridiculously over the top I cannot believe it is serious. Has anyone ever encountered these people before?? I think my favorite article title has to be "Secrets of Hillary Clinton's Lesbian Blood Rituals"
