five women accusing james franco is back in the news.. this article has some ridiculous stuff in it though
https://www.msn.com/en-us/movies/cel...cid=spartanntp

Quote:
Katie Ryan, who met Franco at Playhouse West and took several classes at Studio 4, said the actor "would always make everybody think there were possible roles on the table if we were to perform sexual acts or take off our shirts."
She said that for years, she received mass email requests from Franco to audition for roles playing "a prostitute or a hooker."
They're trying to paint a picture here of him being exploitative.. but his HBO show The Deuce is literally all about prostitutes/hookers that he stars in and has directed a couple of episodes. If these are the projects he's interested in there's nothing unprofessional about that.

People are trying to make money and sex sells.

Some of the other complaints seem to have merit, like removing plastic guard over vagina's before simulating oral sex

Here's a nice article from Vanessa Taylor, writer of The Shape of Water. Talking about the movement, solidarity at the Golden Globes, & how far the goal is.

Wow dave chapelle hit the nail on the head

He continued, “Because men want to help, they’re just scared. Ben Affleck tried to help. ‘Hey, what happened to these ladies is disgusting.’ ‘Oh, n—-, you grabbed a titty in ’95.’ ‘All right, fellas, I’m out. F— that, I ain’t helping.”
check out this new article about Aziz.. because he wore a times up pin and tried to support the end of WORKPLACE harassment, now this woman is putting him on blast over a bad date

https://babe.net/2018/01/13/aziz-ansari-28355

I'm not saying his behavior is appropriate, in fact I don't even want to comment on his behavior at all. I just want to point out that as a man it's really really stupid now to support the Times Up movement.


How crazy - I literally cannot think of a more sexually appropriate scenario than coming home after a date and being alone in your place with them.
Nothing to do with workplace harassment, like, at all. And now he's put on blast for wearing a Times Up pin

Aziz responds
Quote:
""In September of last year, I met a woman at a party. We exchanged numbers. We texted back and forth and eventually went on a date. We went out to dinner, and afterwards we ended up engaging in sexual activity, which by all indications was completely consensual," "

The next day, I got a text from her saying that although 'it may have seemed okay,' upon further reflection, she felt uncomfortable. It was true that everything did seem okay to me, so when I heard that it was not the case for her, I was surprised and concerned. I took her words to heart and responded privately after taking the time to process what she had said."

"I continue to support the movement that is happening in our culture. It is necessary and long overdue"
that's great, very mature of him
