I think this story kind of brings out the absurdity of the whole #metoo movement. Yes, women have been abused. But this comes out at the same time so many other movements are coming out, all of which are tantamount to this: I didn't get what the 1980's promised me, and now I am going to sue for it. The fact is, the 1980's were full of woman-abuse, which everyone went along with, men and women. Why did they do that, back then? Because Reagan, big hair music, and credit spending all promised them that there would some spectacular resolution FOR EVERYONE at the end. That never happened, in the end. What happened was 2008.
After 2008, personal economics changed, and everyone encouraged each other to demand what was due. This was a good thing - except that it has extended way far into the personal, private sphere, where, what is DUE is actually a matter of subjectivity. Now, all politics is based on subjectivity. Which is great because the politicians in power can spend into eternity because nobody is watching objectively anymore.
Silverman is ironically pointing out, whether she knows it or not, that a great part of this whole wave of female complaint involved something that no one is daring to talk about: 'Victim' complicity. Most of these offenses would never have happened if the women had not allowed them to happen. Why did they allow them to happen? Because they were being selfish power-grubbers, just like the men. They deferred to the prospect of a raise, or of fame, or of other 1980's-type promises. I don't believe in blaming victims, but I do believe in being objective, and holding accountable whomever should be accountable. The problem with the left is that they allow zero criticism of women or minorities, as if these4 groups were not flawed or criminal humans too.
"I let so-and-so masturbate in front of me - because the truth must be out there." Like, who the fuck cares? I don't care who is masturbating and who is watching. I am watching this whole society being turned back into a Purityranical nightmare, as it was in the past, and as it is foretold in, "The Handmaid's Tale." Why? Because the more and more women and the left pull this game, the more men are going to get more and more irritable, and that eventually means one thing: WAR.
Real war. War with China, which has 60 million more men than women now, which Trump is pushing us towards. War with Russia, which Clinton and Soros and Obama have been pushing us towards. China and Russia are allies, dunderheads. And a real war means hard times. HARD TIMES MEAN WOMEN GET SCREWED.
I watch these people bringing it on themselves, and they don't have a clue.
