    On video, disturbing

    • Sorry but that's BS. She was not being naive, she did want something from him and made decisions accordingly. Why flirt back if you're filming ?spl33nidoru
    • But she still went out for a drink with him and still went to his hotel afterwards? Smh_niko
    • The dude’s fucking hideous he looks like a god damned toad that enough should have been enough for her to run out of there screaming_niko
    • why blame her? BASH THAT FUCKER instead, he's a real shitBennn
    • ^ it takes 2 to tango. He might be a shit, but he's as WYSIWYG as they come, and a lot of people willingly did whatever to benefit frm him, only to now complainspl33nidoru
    • and buy themselves a new virginity. I'm not saying he never raped anyone (though i doubt it considering his MO on past recordings), but I don't buy her storyspl33nidoru
    • I dont know, it never happend to me and i'm not a woman. Who knows how you'd react... I think its very easy to state how she should haved reacted.Bennn
    • Bennn it's a cut throat business, nobody gets HW-level meetings by accident. These are not people who "find themselves in an unexpected situation" with himspl33nidoru
    • In any case, others might not have, but all signs point to her knowing what was upspl33nidoru
    • If you aren't screaming 'no', or fighting him off of you then you are consenting on some level.hotroddy
    • ^ one doesn't always act rationally when frightenedGnash
    • ^ ... or greedy. I do feel sorry for the young actresses sent to him by shameless agents stressing them how important meeting him was.spl33nidoru
    • If he gets a female lawyer like gomeshi had the poor girl’s going to get crucified. Why did you flirt with him why did you free to meet him for drinks why did_niko
    • ...you follow him to his hotel room, why were you wearing lingerie, why did you wear extra makeup why did you shave down there etc_niko
    • It doesn’t prove that she wanted it, why would she he’s a discussing troll but she was open to the idea or possibility at least_niko
    • But if she was being pressured by her team to close the deal then they’re as big of scumbags as Weinstein_niko
    • I hate that fat fuck. But something's fishy here. She agreed to have drinks with him. Went to hotel room (could've just walked away)...NBQ00
    • ...now many many years later claims he raped her. If he really raped you, you scream and run away, call the police immediately.NBQ00
    • Guys, you're no woman and you've never been raped. I think it's so easy to say "she should this and she should that".Bennn
    • Weisntein is a disgusting pig, and all your comments are about criticizing the girl. Where are the girls in here? Am i right?Bennn
    • I agree, Benn. Easy to say you'd punch him / call the cops as a 40-ish man who wasn't there.Fax_Benson
    • I'm not saying punch him, call the cops. I'm saying did she want to sleep with him ? Probably not. Did she know what she was getting herself into ? Probably.spl33nidoru
    • She either 1) did willingly, 2) set a trap she fell into, or 3) felt both the pressure of HW and her boss, in which case she should also call out the boss.spl33nidoru
    • Personal responsibility and accountability go out the window if you’re a woman? How feminist of you.imbecile
    • If I were in her situation ben, and an old rich haggard woman came on to me like that insinuating that i sleep with her to get the funding i'd either_niko
    • a) throw up and run out of there laughing/screaming or b) fuck the shit out of her and get my funding. what I wouldn't do is go through with it and cry rape_niko
    • that's a completely different scenarioFax_Benson
    • and you can't say that for sure until it happens - that's shit that you don't have to deal withFax_Benson
    • the woman also has the pressure of her employers to manage -- not wanting to fuckup a deal with a major player.Gnash
    • no way a guy can really appreciate what that experience can truly be like.Gnash
    • Either we have equality or we don’t, either we own up to our actions and responsibilities or we don’t. If women are looked at as poor defenceless creatures that_niko
    • ...don’t know any better then we’ll never have equality and the feminist movement is a farce._niko
    • but the situation she's dealing with isn't equal from the outset. and his + her actions aren't equal. you can't level the playing field after the event.Fax_Benson
    • you need to level it prior = you don't need to feel like you have to flirt to get a deal and flirting isn't then a green light for rape.Fax_Benson
    • fuck me this is backwards.Fax_Benson
    • no but does it need to be equal for both to be at fault? what if he was 70% to her 30%. How do you assign blame based on their needs or desires of outcome?_niko
    • Anyway I have 0 sympathy for dirtbag Weinstein but I also have 0-10% sympathy for the girl in this situation._niko
    • you think you're being rational and super-objective but you're not.Fax_Benson
    • well as much as I can be given just this video and the fact that I don't have tits, ie from the optics of a man. Just my opinion._niko
    • I'm sure he's a master manipulator, done this 1000's of times and honed his slimy craft. I'm sure he dangled and pulled back many carrots until she thought she_niko
    • ...was in control, making the decisions and knowing what she wanted, when all the while she was being strung along by Dirtstein. But Still, let's not reduce_niko
    • ...women to whimpering, naive idiots and victims who can't possibly know any better. This is not only dangerous but detrimental to acheiving equality of sexes._niko
    • He was slowly escalating the situation and she went along with it with no resistance. She knew exactly what was going on the whole time.Milan
