Today on Yahoo, I read 2 Tweet responses from british actress Lena Headey to the recent things comedian CK Louis has written lately in response to 5 women accusing him of sexual misconduct. I find it interesting that the woman wrote the article on her response calls it “Savage”in the headline. At the end of the article, which reviews the fact Headey previously had stepped forward to relate her near rape and sexual harassment at the hands of Harvey Weinstein, the writer acknowledges Headey. This was quite the journalistic hedge, first implying Headey is over reacting, then praising her for being part of the men and women coming forward and breaking the silence about sexual harassment and rape in show business and other industries. I believe she has every right to call what CK Louis has done what she has, which is the title to this post.
I like Headey, who most ironically played the wife of the Spartan general in the movie “The 300”. That charactor is raped and temporarily silenced by a betrayer from within the Spartan society while her husband is away defending his people against a huge enemy army. I think she has hit the nail on the head about CK Louis, and all the big time producers and directors who are rapists and sexual harassers. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the death of Hugh Hefner and the end of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual war on women and reign of terror.
But the person I respect the most is Ronan Farrow, the reporter who went to great lengths to research and find proof strong enough to get the New Yorker to break his story on Harvey Weinstein’s rape and harassment of countless women. He is the son of actress Mia Farrow, who once was married to Woody Allen, and who is supposed to be his blood father, but is rumored to be a son of Frank Sinatra. He has now exposed Harvey Weinstein’s hiring of ex Mossad operators who run a secret organization called the “Black Cube” in order to discredit and expose any women and journalists who have come forward with allegations against him.
I’m grateful to have lived to see this day, where ALL the women and men coming forward to own their experiences of being coerced, molested and raped are being listened to , heeded and believed. It’s not punishment that I think is needed in relation to the men doing all this, but putting a stop to them being able to continue doing it and getting away with it with impunity. I really don’t care if Bill Cosby, Roman Polansky, Brett Rattner, or Harvey Weinstein go to jail, I care that the world makes it now impossible for this kind of widespread, blatantly harmful shit to continue to go on and on, like it has for too many years.
