    All these women that went along with it to further their career were the ones that made it okay for people like Harvey to keep doing it. It's hard to have any sympathy.

    Some of the women that went after Harvey have actually thanked him in their award speeches. LOL.

    Meryl Streep once called Harvey "God"

    No wonder she's the most famous female actress in Hollywood.

    Maybe Harvey was totally inappropriate and unprofessional but these women don't seem like they didn't enjoy it. If you are there encouraging and allowing a guy to be a shithead he's going to be a shithead and if he keeps getting a pass he's going to keep doing it. How does someone know something is wrong if they are never told it is wrong and never get punished for it?

    If God asked you if "he" could masturbate in front of you what would YOU say? There is definitely some substantial absurdity here...

    Seth McFarlane posted on Twitter the reasoning behind his 2013 Oscars joke.
    Apparently his friend confided in him that Weinstein abused her.
    Yeah but...why didn't he tell anyone?
    McFarlane is a damn Hollywood coward.

    Meryl Streep never accused him of anything and waited for about 4 or 5 days before condemning him.
    She also stated that she felt bad that Roman Polanski was in jail and gave him a standing ovation.
    So, if she was happy to applaud a known child molester, she probably doesn't really care about HW's behavior.

    She waited till it was safe and it wouldn't hurt her career because now everyone is going after him. She knew had this gone another way and this didn't get the buzz its getting her career could be dead.

    She knows how good she has it and doesn't want it to end. Women her age don't get what she gets. Meryl Streep gets to be the resident old lady of Hollywood where it's actually her gimmick and that's how she gets in so many movies. Similar to how Jack Black is the fat guy of Hollywood and Melissa McCarthy is the fat woman of Hollywood but other than that there aren't many fat people accepted in Hollywood. If she spoke up sooner someone else could have been given her spot as the top dog old lady.

    The reactions of women subjected to sexual harassment are a lot more complex than is being suggested here..


    Yes there will be some who went along with it in order to further their careers, just like there are young women willing to marry fat old men because they are powerful and rich.


    There will be plenty of others who rejected Weinstein but kept quiet about what happened, for more than one reason.


    It is embarrassing and downright humiliating for anyone to be the victim of this kind of assault. The woman will wonder if somehow it was her fault, if she did something to attract unwanted advances, because that is how we are conditioned to think. She will feel shame and who wants to make shame public?


    She might just want to forget the whole thing ever happened and try to put an awful experience behind her.


    Society protects the powerful and Weinstein was powerful. Any victim who came forward would be torn apart, so to speak, by the police, the media and the courts.


    Then there are the repercussions to a young career. A public complaint could not only keep an actress from ever working for Weinstein’s studio, but would get her labelled a troublemaker with others, probably some of them men who also harass.


    All these things happen constantly in more mundane workplaces to women and men, people who also have to decide what they will put up with in order to keep a job they need.


    It only takes a handful of victims to speak out for the others to realize that there experience was not isolated, they were true victims and they are not alone. Then they come forward. I imagine that there could be a certain amount of shame about not having said anything.


    As for the people who supposedly “knew” about it: hearing about something and knowing are two different things. Unless there is proof, anyone who spoke out could run afoul of the laws of slander and libel. Rumour and hearsay aren’t evidence.

    Nobody is entitled to be a famous actor/actress. If you don't want to be around Harvey or people like him don't even go to the same room as him. It's hard to have sympathy for people that will go through with something because they are afraid they won't be a millionaire and a well known actress. Nobody is even entitled to that stuff if it happens it happens but that shouldn't even be your goal. Your goal should just to be to make some cool shit whether that is a indie flick or a big blockbuster movie. You don't need to put yourself in that position at all. Nobody is holding a gun to your head. The worst that can happen is you fall down the ladder in Hollywood. Boo fucking hoo. You can't own multiple mansions.
