It’s reminding me a lot of the sex abuse scandals in the catholic church, where the first couple of times it happened people gave them the benefit of the doubt, but every time they said “this is the last time a priest has abused someone, swearsies realsies”, it lost a lot of power, not least of all because we take swearsies realsies very seriously. Every abuse scandal that comes out of the entertainment business is a bigger deal than the one before, and media companies seem to be wising up to the fact that they cant hush this up any more.
Of course, it’s incredibly disheartening that it’s been this long and gradual process, but there has been progress.

Now Mira Sorvino and Asia Argento came forward regarding Weinstein.
When it rains, it pours:
No surprise there.
Feels like the ending of Tommy Boy to me.
They’re coming out of the woodwork:
Looks like it might actually become the former (something I would’ve bet against, but hope it happens).
