Jesus. Defending some guy you don't even know in two different threads seems a bit obsessive.

I am calm. That's not the story. He hasn't addressed it at all. As far as I know, he hasn't said he did it either. So what's your point?

Someone else said she heard it from either other people at the party or women working as staff at the party. That isn't a first hand account, so it is a different question. But yeah.

Maybe. Condemning people you don't even know for things you don't know for sure seems a bit unfair too imo. But thanks for your advice.

Unfair and obsessive are two very different things.

There is so much, it can be hard to remember. A lot of googling in these situation.

Like today, another story involving Hilarie Burton.

Well, seems all that news awhile ago about a warrant for McGowan's arrest panned out- she turned herself in. Was immediately released after posting bond, but I didn't think that story would actually continue.

Also, wait, how did things here circle back to Affleck? Or do I even want to know?

That's horrible. I used to watch that show, I had a huge crush on Sophia Bush.

Isn't Hilarie married to Jeffrey Dean Morgan?

Not sure if they are married, but I do believe they are together and have kids.

Kotick is a verified *******, just not sure if sexual harassment/assault is a part of it.

Jesus, now finding Zatanna in fishnets attractive or referring to the sexual harassment scandal is “making a rape joke?”.

Ever referring to anything sexual related to a woman is always going to be perpetuating rape culture, now? Let’s cut to the chase and cut out every man’s tongue and save everyone some trouble, rather

When that person has a history of sexual assault? Yeah, maybe one should keep such things to themselves. Also it is a very stupid comment in context. Don't say you need women in the group for representation and then reduce said character to cheap sexual fodder.

Nah, that's a bit of a faux-alarmist, bull**** routine by referring to actual cases of problematic behavior and trying to lump distasteful comments in with them. The hyperbole necessary to categorize what Affleck said this time (inadvisably) with a "rape joke" is laughable. Trying to make it seem like I'm victim blaming when I don't share your level of outrage is also a bull**** tactic.

I agree that Affleck's "You following the news at all?" comment is in poor taste, but does it constitute a rape joke? That seems a little insane.

Should we be condemning Ezra for responding to Ben's comment about Momoa taking his clothes off with "Some of us don't mind" as objectifying or making a rape joke toward Momoa? Or is it alright because Ezra identifies as queer so it's not a problem? Or maybe it was it just an offhand comment that's just not an absolute train smash and not everything needs to result in absolute moral outrage.

I agree completely, I'm simply pointing out that any comment in poor taste doesn't necessarily categorize it as a rape joke or condoning rape. It was a stupid comment, it doesn't seem like it's anything more.

The headline says Ben Affleck jokes about sexual harassment. And what he literally does is commit sexual harassment with Gal Gadot right there. Beyond the fishnets comment, he makes light of the situation in Hollywood, even as he has admitted to doing it himself.

http://www.indiewire.com/2017/11/ben...ew-1201897613/

Quote:
Affleck said he’d love to bring Black Canary on board, citing the need to improve the amount of women in the group, but he also uncomfortably quipped, “The fishnets right?,” after Fisher picked the magician Zatanna. The interview got awkward when Boyden asked the cast what they would do if a character like Supergirl joined the team, which would mean a new actress on set.

Affleck laughed and sarcastically responded, “Are you following the news at all?,” alluding to Hollywood’s harassment and abuse problem. The comment was followed by an uneasy silence.
