    I don't watch award shows where Hollywood or any other industry celebrates itself. Not exactly connected to the real world or any form of reality. What does grab me though is how common this actually is in this day and age no matter what industry it is. There is a very simple answer to all of this: If there is an abuse of power, fire them - no matter the size of the industry.

As we pretend we even knew who this guy was or we fake it that it is a rarity, thousands of women go through this in their careers. Millions have gone through it if we count history.

    So while I'd love to get excited and fake shock over what is commonly known, I can't. I didn't know who this ass was until this week but I know he is not the only ass in Hollywood or in Corporate America, or on Main Street business USA. The best I can do is say it is wrong and it won't change until women are treated fairly in the marketplace. It won't change until women and men value women. It won't stop until all women stop supporting their own devalued position. Start by demanding the no-brainer of equal pay. Start by demanding equal promotions. Start by being a fiery force that shuts these male dominated areas down who so disrespect women as to make them a common story about women in business. This is 2017 and some have said women are equal but in-your-face if you really believed that. They are not equal until this rubbish stops. Pay all genders equally. Women are not cattle. Don't lecture women on how to ignore reality using one example no one has a clue about. Look at the whole of women and careers in America.

    Please for goodness sake don't pretend I am suppose to give a flying fig about what timeframe some actor or actress says something about someone no one knows. Tell me you get it that this is happening to women across America. Tell me it has to stop by your own actions.

    Oh wait, this is a message board and I already know how sexist some posters can be so why should I be shocked that the same ones are demanding action on foul treatment of women when they themselves partake if the subject is Michelle Obama or Hillary Clinton.

    Sincerely,

    Since I am still not up to speed and have graduated to a
    ," Little Lord Fauntleroy," movie it is an amusing thing to kill time.

    How exactly does being a movie studio head that make him a "Progressive Champion", or anysort of significant leader/spokesperson for Democrats or Liberals?

    It is a little crazy that the issue itself is ignored but one case is elevated. Leaves a bad taste.

    Shh,Hollywood, Mcduff and his mostly crew have a full steam load of indignation built up.

    Like Trump,the tea pot is now a pressure cooker. Release steam,or they are going to blow!

    I did. I tend to pay attention to movie producers/directors of movies I like, and TWC financed some good films.


    But yah, the upcoming movie about the epic downfall of this creepy old rich pervert should be good. I'm hoping the actors involved will play cameos of themselves
