It's easy to be willing to pay a price when someone else actually is the one paying it -- indeed, a lot of someone else.

And the sad fact is that I'll be amongst the casualties of the squashed patriarchy without ever having gotten any of its benefits. No grabbed asses. No walking around my office naked in front of interns. No cigar incidents with thong-snappers. No taking it out to either good or ill effect. I feel cheated.

When Thomas Pinckney came back to America after the XYZ incident, the Jeffersonians claimed that he had gotten 4 French girls --2 for whom and 2 for Adams. The latter responded that if that was so, then Pinckney had kept them all and cheated him of his 2.

"I have no sympathy for the likes of Spacey, Weinstein, or any of the lesser gropers and pervs. If they now find themselves on a lifetime Hollywood blacklist, it’s damn good enough for them, as this was the fate their victims feared more than anything else. They’ll live the rest of their lives in a solitary-confinement cell they had constructed to imprison others." If they find themselves blacklisted,would that this would come true. Roman (the child rapist) Polanski is still getting lifetime achievement awards and reportedly still raping children.

The rules seem to be changing. We shall see if this is only a temporary change, soon to return to business as usual. So far the prognosis isn't favorable on that.

Douglas Murray has a rare and intelligent article on the subject at NRO. He basically states the obvious (in my words, not his) that many people (man or woman) were whoring themselves out in Hollywood to get ahead:

Of course, a very great many of the stories that have come to light recently (both in the realm of the criminal and in the realm of manners) are stories in which the older men in question are the sole predators and the only appalling bearers of blame. But it does not follow that they can only ever be the only bearers of blame. Concern about not victim-blaming in some cases means that moral onus in all such situations is at risk of being simplified . . .

Power is not in fact only a top-down thing. The belief that power lies only — or only meaningfully — with older, richer, more “powerful” men and that these prey on younger, prettier, more vulnerable people is not just wrong because it is a construct of the modern, misandrist Left. It is wrong because it entirely ignores the form of (for want of a better term) bottom-up power which also exists.

I’m guessing I’ve knocked no one over with a feather here at StubbornThings with that realization.

Pretty funny isn't it? This guy is about as big a phony as one could be. He makes a $3 bill look genuine.

It's always do as a I say, not as I do, for leftists. I've noted many times before that they judge people on the basis of their beliefs rather than their deeds.
