Rose McGowan. Mira Sorvino. Asia Argento. Daryl Hannah. Rosanna Arquette. Annabella Sciorra.
All women who were abused and assaulted by Harvey Weinstein.
All women who have had their careers either set-back or stalled completely because of Weinstein.
All women who suffered at the hands of a vile, power-mad rapist.
And, all women who were allegedly not invited to the Golden Globes 2018 as part of the #Timesup movement.
According to a Tweet by Rosanna Arquette, she and the above named victims of Weinstein weren’t asked to appear at the event or even to comment on the #Timesup movement itself. You’d have thought Rose McGowan would have at least been invited, (being the one who first brought to light the heinous actions of Harvey Weinstein) if not mentioned somewhere in the evening; but alas, no.
McGowan’s public fall-out with Meryl Streep is reason enough for her to be uninvited, in order to stop her stealing Streep’s spotlight. Meryl is in “Damage control mode” at the moment after the whole #Sheknew movement began, highlighting the fact that she claims she knew nothing of Weinstein’s behaviour prior to McGowan’s statements about her ordeal. Add to that the fact that she was more than happy to clap and cheer for known rapist and peadophile Roman Polanski, when it’s quite clear that he is guilty of his crimes, is hypocrisy at it’s finest. Streep, who is seen by most on the Liberal side of the scale as a shining beacon of righteousness, is at the heart of this movement in order to cover for her own failings. By having McGowan, who has slammed Streep for not noticing Weinstein’s past behaviour, as a voice of the #Timesup movement would be a catastrophic move, potentially exposing Streep’s hypocrisy to the point that the Liberal idiots who are blatantly ignoring it, would not be able to do so further.
Although Weinstein’s actions were certainly at the heart of the #Metoo and #Timesup movements, he certainly wasn’t the only person in Hollywood using his power to abuse people. There are supposedly untold numbers of abusers in Hollywood, and a countless number of victims left in their wake. Every single one of them need to be exposed and pay for their crimes, just as each and every victim deserves any help and support that can be offered.
Their voices need to be heard, and yet they were so obviously missing from the red carpet.
Because this entire event wasn’t just about exposing sexual abuse in Hollywood. It was never just about that.
The main point of it was to act as one big Feminist outreach program; a chance for women to “have their moment in the spotlight” and “take charge”, while riding a tidal-wave of virtue-signalling and hypocrisy.
And it was all built on the back of the suffering of REAL victims.
How do I know this?
Well, instead of having Queen Oprah (Yassssss! Queen!) giving her first inaugural speech as President-elect, or Connie Britton wearing a $400 sweater saying “poverty is sexist” in a non-ironic manner, or Debra Messing calling out E! for the Catt Sadler “pay-gap debacle”, surely they should have had the ACTUAL victims of misogyny and abuse stood out on the red carpet?
And not just the female victims that they failed to invite: what about the male victims of abuse? Lord knows there are plenty of them (though you’d be hard-pressed to actually find a cover story about them…).
Don’t get me wrong; I know you all made it quite clear that it was “time for men to step back and listen”, but in the name of EQUALITY, which, after all, is what Feminism is really all about, (according to any theoretical Feminist anyway) you could have brought out the uninvited women alongside other victims of Hollywood sexual abuse and exploitation. MALE ones, such as Terry Crews, and Anthony Rapp, and Corey Feldman. There could have been a huge picture of Corey Haim hung inside and outside the venue in order to remember and honour another victim of misogyny. Then, you could have all gathered in front of these people, these REAL victims and REAL Heroes, and knelt at their feet; knelt in front of them and chanted in one true voice:
“WE’RE SORRY! WE KNEW! WE ALL KNEW! AND WE LET IT HAPPEN!”
You’d be lucky if you could find more than 5 or 6 people out of the entire guest-list of the Golden Globes who didn’t actually know anything about the actions of Harvey Weinstein, or any of the sexual abusers in Hollywood. They knew, and they didn’t say anything because they couldn’t possibly risk losing any of the power they themselves had attained. Their careers, their money and their influence were and are far more important to them than actually exposing the people who afforded them it in the first place.
Harvey Weinstein was outed for what he really was and that was the opportune moment for these sycophantic morons to be able to prove that they do care and that they are virtuous people who only have your interests at heart.
At the Golden Globes their masks slipped off, exposing them as the power hungry, enabling frauds they really are.
Never forget this:
