This is a case of a megalomaniac, unrestrained, and without any sence of decency. Much like the dictators and Caesars of old Rome.

The new organization #leaf me alone, has sprouted amid the reports of Harvey Weinstein's spontaneous spraying of his DNA on innocent potted plants.

"I was rooted to the spot, said Marigold, whose last name was withheld ...."he treated me like crabgrass ... it took a pound of fertilizer to make me feel clean again."

Peace Lilly, speaking from a nearby patch of sunlight, echoed the anguish of her sister plant.
"We're commonly mistreated.... denied water, moved from place to place without being asked ...but I would rather be infested with aphids than to see the shocking display of that particular asparagus again!"

Weinstein's attorney declined to comment directly on the incidents, saying only that Harvey had an unhealthy interest in his mother's tulip bulbs as a youngster.

Hollywierd, it never ceases to amaze.

HW, what a slime ball. Not all of these "actresses" are marigolds and lilies, some are/were venus fly traps. Not so innocent and unaware of what was going on and did their deeds just to get the job.

That being said to use a position of influence and power in this way is just plain sick.

Paul Sorvino has said that his daughter Mira lost out on some great roles because she did not give in to Weinstein. He says she was more or less blackballed in Hollywood because of Weinstein.

Makes you respect Mira more and wonder about the rest of the Hollywood starlets.

"HW, what a slime ball. Not all of these "actresses" are marigolds and lilies, some are/were venus fly traps. Not so innocent and unaware of what was going on and did their deeds just to get the job."

Listen, there's a reason he acted the way he acted. It probably worked a lot of the time. I am sure there were plenty of actresses that said gee, all I have to do is sleep with this gross old man and I get a great job, and they did it.

Do that a hundred times, and now HW thinks EVERY actress will do it, or at least that its worth a shot.

Even so, the worst part of the whole #MeToo thing is that all of the accused are being lumped together. If one guy tried to seduce a girl and kissed her and she felt pressured to do it because of the guy's position, that's one thing. Another guy pleasuring himself in front of someone is another thing. Outright rape like HW is accused of is something totally different.

Yet, all of these guys are getting lumped into one category. I don't think any of it is right, or is correct professional behavior, but in every other facet of life, these things are not in the same category, yet now, they seem to be.

It's called a casting couch. Open secret in the industry. Women and men know and knew about it for decades.

If he could just announce "supporting actress role available, actress chosen must put out on demand", he would have a line of applicants around the block.
While that is disgusting, it is also true.
At least everyone would have their cards on the table. He would be an open slimeball, and those who slept their way to the limelight could brag about it instead of cry about it.
I mean, hey, I know a gal who put out for a load of gravel dumped and spread in her driveway, and bragged about it! I know a former Comcast cable installer who told me that at many an apartment complex there was no shortage of offers to exchange sexual favors for hooking gals up with free cable, or an off the books upgrade. Not every female is a delicate flower and some are quite willing to use all of their assets to get what they want.

Many years ago I worked at a gas station in Monterey, Calif.a block above Cannery Row. . Around 1966..
A Karmann Ghia with New York plates rolled up. Two very good looking young ladies on board.

Driver says "please fill it up with regular".

I pop the "hood" up where-in lies the fuel tank..
and what swings down put a sign the size of a license plate that said :
" Axx for Gas".
I washed the windshield, checked the oil, checked the tire pressure while calculating how many "fill ups" they had across the country and decided I did not want to be the one at the end of the line. I collected the $3.50 for the gas.

This was not a singular experience.

That was likely a wise move. Even in the 60’s when everything was groovy, baby.

My alternate comment was:

“I washed the windshield, checked the oil, checked the tire pressure”

Is that what the kids called it back then????

Work is more fun when there's playful harmless banter between the sexes.

Guess we're all in the no-fun-league now.
