So this just hit. Rose Mc'Gowan, the other head of the two-headed pound me too giant, is now saying that Asia Agento admitted to receiving nudes from the boy since he was 12 and that she did nothing.

I am certain that if a 32 year old man was receiving nude photos from a 12 year old girl and then proceeded to sleep with her when she was 17, he would be accused of grooming her to get her to that point, among other things, so I will be feminist in treating women equally and do the same here.

Thoughts?

Once again, no sympathy for her. She should be charged for sex crimes no different from any man.

I'm not gonna dignify the DailyHeil with a click but it is worrisome to see that the problem with instutionalized sexual abuse in the American film industry exists within a movement made in response to it. If course MeToo seems to be handling it quite well, not going out of its way to defend Argento after what she's done.

Yeah, she's trash

at first when i heard this story i believed it but now i'm not so sure anymore. it's word against word.

There's been texts that have been delivered to the police where she admits all this stuff. This is why her friend is finally coming out against her. Read the actual linked article x.x.

Then she can go to jail like any sex offender.

i did read the article. that's what made me unsure. in the text she admits to sleeping with him while not knowing how old he is and claims she received unsolicited nude pictures from him while he was young and she also in the same texts claims he was the instigator of the sex. that's very different from grooming him from a young age and fucking him when he was 17.

If you receive nudes from a 12 year old and do nothing, not even tell his parents or ask him to stop, that's already bad enough.

I'm thinking nobody here is going to say she should be treated different than if the genders were reversed, whether or not they identify as feminist. Whether or not people identify as feminist is likely to somewhat affect whether or not people say MeToo should be stopped or something because of this, though.

I always had a strong feeling that those who started Metoo were mostly mean and dishonest backstabbers so it's good to see they finally get a taste of their own medicine. Asia Argento and her Metoo is not the first.

Those who scream the loudest, condemn the hardest and vigorously profile themselves as paragons of virtue are always the most dishonest. Take the catholic church and their child abuse. That new york governor on his anti-prostitution crusade who himself was found in front of a prostitute with his pants down. Or recently that prolific neogaf 'white knight' who sexually assaulted some chick in a hotel room. I could go on and on.

People's true nature is more important than what they publicly claim, so a hypocrite claiming 'moral justice' is worth shit.

Hardcore feminists turning out to be sexual predators?
How absolutely not shocking.

I think that both of these harpies should get their lives ruined like Weinstein, Spacey and the like.
Argento for being a pedophile and McGowan for being an accomplice.

Not here.

Moving to R&P.

I found that those who most vehemently attack political dispositions are often guilty of exactly what they proport to stand against. I remember plenty of cases of male senators defending 'Christian' values found in hotel rooms with callboys, and tons of cases of very vocal male allies of the feminist movement found to be sex offenders. So, I'm not even surprised anymore about that kind of stuff at this point. Doesn't change that Weinstein is a monster. But her career should at least take as big a hit as his did. She spent years and years grooming a teenager. Regular people go to jail for that kind of stuff.

I know what you mean, I see so many people with anime avatars who are pedophiles. Its just common sense.

The idea that being strongly against something means you are actually for that thing is stupid. It really (strongly) annoys me when people don't clean up after their dog (that is, pick up its poo). That doesn't mean I secretly gather dogshit out of poo-bins to scatter in alleyways/your front lawn.

The creator of Rurouni Kenshin a popular manga/anime was found to be in possession of child pornography. There you go, smoking gun, people who like anime are pedophiles.

Except, you know how stupid that line of thinking is, its obvious. The problem is you make the same mistake in your post. Sure there are instances of the anti-gay politician or priest caught with the rent-boy, or the feminist supporter using his position to try and score sex. But these are outliers, the reason they stick with us is because these people are acting in a hypocritical way. We don't remember the majority of people aren't being hypocrites, we just remember the exceptions.

These people would be first ones to make such a claim, actually, so while obviously nobody is pointing out that if someone you like did something bad that you endorse it automatically, it is also interesting to point out the hypocrisy and change in approach. When it's a man doing something these people would not be willing to wait for the law to take its course and would instantly bemoan whoever employs him, but when it's one of them suddenly they find in them the heart to believe in the justice system and don't rush to condemn on pure accusations but need actual pictures that are actionable by the police.

I'm just holding them to their own standard. They champion believing the victims on mere evidence-less accusations. Hence, for her to not be a hypocrite, she should have denounced Asia the moment there was an accusation. The issue here is that she decided that evidence is necessary when it was her, but that she would crucify men on the mere word of their accusers prior.

If you don't think that a 32 year old man who received nudes from a 12 year old girl and did nothing to stop them or to dissuade her, who then went on to have sex with her 5 years later, would not be accused of sexually grooming her and being a pedophile by these people, I don't know what to say to you. Just please try to be honest?

Thank you for the correction, my browser listed the proper spelling as incorrect for some reason.

The suffix phobic means scared, phillic means likes. You know, necrophilic, pedophile, etc. Arachnophillic would mean "likes spider".

But I don't know if phillic means wanting sex with them. Also, don't get confused with phallic. That something completely different.

Phillic is from the greek "philia" which is just friendship, so it'd mean you have a friendly feeling about something. Like bibliophile doesn't mean you wanna have sex with books. Just imagine the papercuts!

Phallic is derived from the ancient greek term for the male organ though, so yeah, that's as you interpret it. :P

Yea like I am strongly for equal access to healthcare, food, shelter, safety, clean air, soil and water so that means I must secretly want to kill everyone make them homeless and be shot at while I pollute everything right?

The false observation above only goes to show that those people were bad people who did bad things. It has nothing to do with how strongly someone feels about something, or has any impact on whether or not other people will do the same.

OT: There is already a thread on this, so these should probably be merged:
http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/528.1055924-MeToo-Movement-Leader-Faced-With-Sexual-Assault-Allegations

I wish I could say I was surprised by this, but sadly it is all too common for the victims of abuse to also be abusers themselves. This is why it is so important we stop the cycle of abuse or we wind up with many more victims, it never ends. I think this is why it is important for all victims of abuse to be able to speak up, as it may be the only way in the end to be able to reduce it some day.

I actually didn't think " Me too" would make much a difference, it is simply too rampant. Why it is important though is that it opens the path so people can start feeling like it is okay to talk about it, as far too long victims are expected to suffer in silence. That is the first step to hopefully one day being able to change this and reduce this, as it gets people talking , so hopefully that will lead to more reduction down the road. As for now, it is still a sad reality that we still have to live with. No, we should not have to live like that, but reality is we do still have to live like that. Hopefully one day that will change so our reality is no longer " I was raped, my sister was raped, my friends were raped, my cousin was raped, my grandmother was raped" as sadly is the reality we deal with today.

Examples of bad people doing bad things =\= people who are vocal about things they feel strongly about really do those things themselves. No, that is not a logical conclusion to draw and is terribly false.

Reality is people get mad about things and they speak up, that does not mean in any way they do those things themselves. Then you have what are called " con artists" who do many bad things and misrepresent themselves, this is just ONE of those things. Con artists have no impact on those who genuinely feel strongly about things they are trying to change and are not representative of them. No, they are simply con artists who do bad things.

and what do you mean be honest. i don't know about you but i have noticed that society isn't completely equal when it comes to genders and sex.
its much less of a big deal for a adult woman to receive a nude selfie of a small boy then for a adult man to receive one from a small girl. not because that's how it should be but that is what society looks like.
i could easily see a woman in her position dismiss a nude picture (assuming no erection) as a prank or something similar because how male sexuality is portrayed in media etc while a man in her position would be more suspicious.
is the fact she did nothing in response to the picture(s) suspicious? yes
is it definite proof of grooming? no
would it be more suspicious if she was a man? yes, because of societal norms.

I think you're missing the point. There's being strongly for something, then there's being overly strongly for something. So strongly that a logical observer can reasonably deduce that you're over-compensating out of a sense of guilt and fear, in an attempt to hide your true nature.

Being for healthcare strongly, and making it your life's purpose and obsessively turning every situation or dialogue into one about healthcare, are two drastically different things. Also, the fact that there clearly do exist some people who are actually just that obsessed with those issues does not do anything to reduce that suspect feeling that a reasonable observer may feel.

There's being against pedophilia, and then there's bringing it up as part of your introduction. If someone opened up with "hey guys, just so you know, I'm against pedophilia as strongly as one can be!" wouldn't the natural reaction be "hey, why are you even bringing up pedophilia out of nowhere? It's so normal to be against it that now I begin to doubt you since you had to specify that you're against it as though it's something that need be specified".

I think normal people can just assume others are against rape or sexual harassment so if someone makes it a point to make others aware of their antipathy towards it, while there indeed may be some valid reasoning behind it and it may not be overcompensation, people will still be taken aback and find that utterance somehow deceitful or suspect.

Seriously, in the gaming community this is rampant, and it is also an issue online in general. I have no clue which were 18 yr old dick pics and which were not, I didn't ask for them and thus ignored them as MOST girl gamers do. I have been having dick pics thrown at me ever since I was underage myself. You become immune to them after a while. After so many times ppl changed heir avatars to their junk when they find out you are a girl, it becomes a normal part of the scenery and you don't even notice anymore. This is especially true in the hardcore pvp scene and just one of the things that girls just expect to happen to them when trying to play games they enjoy and compete.

EDIT: If people are constantly sending her dick pics or nudes, as they do to girls in gaming, no she likely would do nothing as it is something that happens all the time. Her being a celebrity makes that likely as well. It is just one of those things females seem to have to deal with a lot of that they never asked for. For the record, I have been sent/shown hundreds of dick pics and have never once asked for one. Entire clans/guilds would do this during conferences because hey thought it was funny as a group effort.

( Darkfall, Eve Online, Runescape, and League of Legends communities were especially bad for this.)
EDIT AGAIN: OH yea can't leave out Dungeon Runners.. yea. THOSE guys.
