Blowback to ‘MeToo’ Movement in Entertainment Industry is Inevitable

In the past few months, we have seen a number of famous and not-so-famous people in the entertainment industry (almost exclusively men) being accused of sexual harassment by often previously unknown accusers (almost exclusively women) resulting in the former losing their jobs or careers. More relevantly for the rest of this post, many of these accusations are based on accepting woman accuser’s word as the truth and lack of due process for accused. Even being a bit allegedly “mean” to women is now sufficient for femfists and their dickless ‘male allies’ to act like lynch mobs on social media platforms.

The list of men in the entertainment industry who have been accused of sexual harassment or just being too “mean” and “disrespectful” to women is long and ever-growing. Curiously, many of those accused were once big supporters of the same feminist bullshit which has now screwed them over. It is, therefore, hard to feel much sympathy for guys who once enthusiastic supported really bad ideas such as “women can do no wrong or lie” or “women are always morally superior to men”. Perhaps they thought that mouthing platitudes about, and expressing support for, feminism would somehow protect them from such accusations. Guess what.. it did not!

Moving on.. we have now reached the point where basically any women can accuse any male celebrity she interacted, or had repeated consensual sex, with anything from sexual harassment, emotional abuse, sexual assault or pretty much anything else even if she had zero proof that her allegations are true. The recent examples of some starfucker accusing Aziz Ansari of sexual assault and Chris Hardwick being accused of sexual assault and emotional cruelty by his ex-girlfriend (who is quite the headcase) are particularly instructive since they show that feminists are striving for a ‘brave new world’ where consent can be revoked after the fact.

So here is a somewhat unpleasant, but realistic, prediction of the type of blowback we might soon see in response to men losing their livelihoods and careers over accusations which could not have been successfully prosecuted in a court of law. Spoiler.. the term ‘blowback’ will assume a whole new meaning in this context. Faced with the destruction of their career and lack of due process, a small percentage of men accused in this manner might decide that killing their accuser is the most appropriate response to such accusations. To be clear, I neither condone, nor condemn such a response- just pointing out that sooner or later, something along these lines is inevitable.

And there are a couple of well-known precedents for this sort of reaction. Most of you must have heard or read about at least a few cases of men killing their ex-wives or ex-partners because of a perception that civil court system was very unfair to them during their divorce or child-custody hearings. Well.. what is the real difference between a guy who lost his house during a divorce which he did not initiate and an actor losing his career because of accusations which cannot be proven in a court of law? Not much, and the later example is potentially worse than the former.

Another precedent for such reactions comes from looking at the profile of mass shooters in USA. With a few exceptions, mass shooters tend to chronically single or functionally incel men with poor job and career prospects for the future. The corporate media and every other discredited institutions can blame ‘mental health’ all they want, but the fact that some men who would rather go on rampage shootings or overdose themselves with opioids says far more about that society than the men. To summarize, we have seen violent blowback from men in similar situations and under similar constraints.

The psychological profile of those who work in entertainment industry tends towards higher levels of risk taking and emotional responses than average. I mean.. look at the incidence of addiction, overdosing, risky sexual behavior etc prevalent in that group versus the general population. It would therefore be not surprising if we started seeing a few men subject to such kangaroo court trials by social media decide to make their accuser pay for her accusations. While it hard to predict when such a trend will become public, everything we know about human behavior and responses makes it almost inevitable.

    Another 2 data points for you:
    – Netflix has instituted a “no staring more than 5 seconds or it’s harassment” policy
    – Facebook and Google employees can only ask someone they work with out ONCE, after that it’s harassment

    What a time to be alive. Men better start recording stuff, and make sure women pay like Eleanor de Freitas if women try to cross them.

    After all, since men and women are equal, men can also be abused and hence must bring their abusers to justice 🙂

      (Reuters) – Intel Corp (INTC.O) Chief Executive Brian Krzanich resigned on Thursday after a probe found a consensual relationship with an employee violated company policy.

      Looks like the femirists (feminist terrorists) getting their pound of flesh again, by making it impossible for guys to have/begin a relationship in any way:
      1. Meet online? You can be sued for misrepresentation and bringing your company into disrepute (especially if ANY communication happens during work time on work equipment – or even your own mobile during work time)
      2. Meet at work? Abuse of power, since you probably outrank that girl (since women only look up to/respect men who are superior to them – maybe even their superiors)
      3. Meet at bars? Alcohol was consumed (therefore her consent is invalid)
      4. Meet at a religious gathering? Just lol, born-again virgins plague those places (and also rebound girls looking for their final fool)
      5. Meet at the park? By scrutinising who is married or not, you are “harassing” and “creeping” on women.

      Women are certainly doing their damnedest to bring around the new SoE

This is with 50+ different pretend genders to choose from. Gender is now a costume. Repression, the constant publicized threat of false accusations, and insane tyrannical policies inevitably WILL lead to extremely violent retaliation. This I do absolutely condone. Who wants to live in a world where your employer can penalize you for looking at another person and gives anyone and everyone the proactive opportunity to falsely convict you of wrong doing.

      The fact that women are not turning up in droves to protest against it means they like how that situation advantages their natures.

      If they only find 20 – 10% of men attractive, by definition the remaining 80 – 90% are either jokes, wallets, shields or patsies.

    Everyone seems to be missing the point here in regards to corporate policy. The policies put in place to “prevent” sexual harassment are there for one thing: to cover their asses in the event of any lawsuit. They could give a shit what the laws actually are or implicate. They make employees sit through yearly sexual harassment training in order to legally be off the hook once a lawsuit comes down. That’s that.

    As for where the me too movement is –
    Consider how it began: with Ronan farrow (himself a liar and faker-look at what he’s said about woody Allen) getting an in depth interview from rose McGowan (a complete nut job liar faker bullshiter idiot-try listening to her podcast interview w Brett Easton Ellis done long before the movement started). Thus began the downfall of many not so innocent people. Of course it all gets very muddy bc most of the people getting taken down really do deserve it but again what do they all have in common? They’re “ugly” by general standards. That’s the major irony that no one wishes to discuss. The other major irony is that actresses actually want us to think we respect them for their acting ability as opposed to wanting to fuck them – again made even more ironic by the fact that each and every one of them has put 100k into body modification. The whole thing is frivolous. Men are to blame as well because so many of them are just fucking socially awkward.

    • P Ray
      June 19, 2018 at 1:24 am

      Well, it can be simplified even further:

      What’s the difference between saying a man is “socially awkward” when he’s ugly,
      and saying a woman is “charming” when she’s just pretty?

      Ya, gonna get people going SJW on this, but on the bare facts:
      Let’s face it, rape is just “unwanted” sex. And, it’s only a crime when it gets reported to the police.

      For everyone talking about “unreported” rapes … well … no crime happened there because it wasn’t reported!

      And of course people don’t want to talk about how looks come into your success in life:
      Because admitting that would mean civilisation has only managed to put suits on apes.

    • June 19, 2018 at 9:16 pm

      It is not necessary to micro manage peoples eye muscle control in order to establish a policy of no tolerance concerning sexual abuse. Furthermore, asking someone out for a date more than once certainly does not constitute sexual harassment.

      This isn’t a case of something that has “gone too far” either. It should have never started to begin with. It is sick perverse symptoms of a society becoming more dominated by women, homosexuals and weaklings.

        The funniest example of this is when a man isn’t attracted to a woman, they like to call him gay,
        but then women like to say calling a guy gay is offensive.

        My concern of the future is that Terminators will begin a rampage against humanity because “woman logic” will cause their circuits to burn out, hence the defensive mechanism of slaughtering humanity.

        Anyhow for the guy above, to rebut the woman he should say:
        “If rape is about power, not sex, that means children and the elderly get raped the most, so why are there so many warnings in universities about rape? They’re not the ones who get raped the most since rape is about power, not sex, amirite?”

    Another blowback is retreat in porn and/or escorts. With the escorts, even those who can only afford a couple of “conjugal visits” a year may prefer that rather than facing the risks of modern courtship. The problem is, if this trend will continue, it’s possible that feminists will try even harder to criminalize prostitution. I think deep down, the worst fear of feminists is for men to not need women.

    • June 19, 2018 at 5:24 am

      “I think deep down, the worst fear of feminists is for men to not need women”.

      Instinct to reproduce ultimately trumps rational thought about relationships. If not, the human species wouldn’t have survived.
      It does seem to be scientifically true that, as far as sexual attractiveness, women do, “… only find 20 – 10% of men attractive, [and therefore] by definition the remaining 80 – 90% are either jokes, wallets, shields or patsies [in women’s estimation]”.

      However, women have a strong instinct to have babies. They may sexually desire only 20% of men as sperm donors (cuz, that’s what lies behind sexual attraction — we’re attracted sexually to what we instinctively assess — whether that assessment happens to be correct or not — to be favorable genes to pass along to our offspring), but they nevertheless need men.

      So, agreed — at some instinctive level at least, feminists fear men not needing women, since without men being involved directly or indirectly, women cannot reproduce.

        That’s where the relationships with constant strife and demands come in:
        The guy they’re with is NOT the guy they’re attracted to.

        As I’ve said before, what women allow/ignore the guy to get away with … depends on whether she’s attracted to him.

        If a guy is constantly walking on eggshells and she’s arguing with him all the time, she doesn’t desire him and is contemptuous. If she has to get drunk to have sex with him, she’s not attracted to him. If she has to have sex in the dark with him, she’s not attracted to him.

        And if she’s buying lots of diamonds, pearls, handbags, dresses – things that CAN’T be considered “men’s property” … she’s just setting up a juicy compensation plan for when the divorce drops.

        Some handbags are investment pieces like Birkin and Hermes bags.

      Men have never NEEDED women. Men can fend for and defend themselves. Women throughout history have always been the physically weaker sex, and have needed men to protect and provide. What the feminists fear, is men coming into that realization once again and realizing that, nowadays, the costs far exceed the benefits of involvement with a female.

    • June 19, 2018 at 9:34 pm

      Feminists worst fear is to lose control to a man. Ironically it is also their deepest desire. The best solution for any man is to remain resolute in the fact that he is his only possible source of validation. All other sources are a mirage of unreliable fantasy and ultimately, for this purpose, enemies of the self. There is no better way to maintain this resolution than to remain objective and recognize a womens weaknesses and strengths and use them to your benefit. See women for how you can benefit from them rather than how to combat them or compete with them. You cannot train a dog or horse by trying to complete with it on its level. The only true master is one who achieves mastery over self. Once this is achieved, no others can because a man cannot serve more than one master.

      I read that Nevada, or at least some counties in it, are considering outlawing prostitution. Interesting how our culture has gotten liberal in many ways…drugs, gay marriage etc yet the one thing they are going to tighten up on is prostitution. They want incels to stay incel and not find any shortcuts.

        Women can extort money from men if their needs are not being met.
        Men doing the same get sent to jail.

        The same way a woman can talk about handsome guys all day and it’s just “girl talk”
        But if a man talks about beautiful women all day it’s “degrading”.

        The same way women want to outlaw porn and it’s OK since it promotes unrealistic expectations of women,
        but if men want to outlaw romance movies and novels it’s not OK eventhough it promotes unrealistic expectations of men.

        @P Ray, good point on the double standard. I never even hear men talk about good looking women anymore, it has become taboo. It seems the more our culture emphasizes male appearance the less we value female beauty. No wonder I mostly see obese women covered in tattoos these days.

        I never even hear men talk about good looking women anymore, it has become taboo.
        Well, that’s because those are the “regular/ugly” men. Attractive men can comment on women(if they want to, since there is no shortage of women attracted to them, so there’s no need for them to comment … plus women are cowards and afraid of rejection from men), and that’s OK.

        Again, the sanctions are only to threaten regular/ugly men. Only a strike by men, or subtle “transactionism” – she doesn’t get anything done in full … unless he gets something – will teach the lesson. Apparently, things should only be free when women ask for it, is what I’m seeing.

    Violence extremely unlikely, other than psychos like Charlie Sheen.
    .
    The real blowback is when people just get sick of the false accusations, which will happen in a few years. First there will be edgy comedians, women comedians initially, making fun of ugly feminists and throwing out the bitch weird right and left, then the momentum will gather as the economy goes into the next recession and people question the prevailing value system. Buy stock in tattoo removal companies.
    .
    Also, eventually there will be a conflict between generations. in the past, these conflicts were muted because most people don’t want to throw their own parents or own children under the bus. but if young people are mostly immigrants and unrelated to the elderly because the elderly forgot to breed, it could be a different story. Lack of blood ties between generations will definitely be the case in Europe, less so on the USA, not at all in Japan (many elderly will have no grandchildren in Japan but no grandchildren will lack native grandparents).

    I have read enough history to know that reality takes seemingly unlikely routes.

      Europeans have always given their women more leeway than other cultures. Too bad for women that the next generation is only a little above half European

      Also if you think that large numbers of men from MENA region won’t beat, kill or mutilate by say acid a women they think wronged them you are crazy and you are doubly so if you think these people won’t shift the society in the direction they want

      It only takes jury null or two for the message of fear to go out

      The funny thing about all the bad stuff a man can have / be involved in,
      it’s only a downer if women think it is.

    The big effect will be in hiring. Especially in the millions of male-owned small and medium businesses without the usually female HR chiefs.

    Given a choice between male and female closely qualified candidates, discretion would lead one to avoid the possible drama, lawsuits, etc.

    It’s also going to lead to weird dynamics in work and social life, as men try to avoid being alone with any but the most trusted women.

      Women don’t want to be around regular/ugly men (unless they’re rich or can help those women in any other way) if they can help it – at least now, when they hold the ear of the media …
      so it’s not really much of a weird dynamic anyway. But it will be just more apparent.

        ^ It will be the “diversity managers” to the rescue for that.
        Tech companies in the US would rather hire an under-qualified woman for a job than a qualified man.
        Plus there will be the LGBTQ brigade over there so she won’t be lonely.

        Remember, Mr. Musk lives by sucking off the government teat, so this whole idea of “companies have to be innovative and efficient and profitable” is out the window.

        Women only complain about lack of attention when Chad has other options. Remember, most women only find the top 10-20% of men to be attractive.

    Sweden’s new law that sex without consent is rape even when there are no threats or force comes into effect
    Law stipulates person is guilty of rape if other person did not participate ‘freely’
    Rape had been defined as sexual act carried out with use of violence or threat
    Judge Anna Hannell said there will be no need to press ‘yes’ on app to consent
    By AFP
    PUBLISHED: 15:03 BST, 1 July 2018 | UPDATED: 15:20 BST, 1 July 2018
    A tough new law that will class sex without explicit consent as rape has come into effect in Sweden today.

    It comes after the country was rocked by the #MeToo movement denouncing sexual harassment and assault.

    The law stipulates that a person has committed rape if they have been part of a sexual act in which the other person has not participated ‘freely’.

    Rape had previously been defined as a sexual act carried out with the use of violence or threat.

    Now for someone to face rape charges, ‘it is no longer necessary that violence or threats were applied, or that the aggressor took advantage of the victim’s particularly vulnerable situation,’ according to the government.

    Courts will need to pay particular attention to whether consent was expressed with words, gestures or in another manner, and judges will have to rule on the issue, according to the law passed in May.

    I think the consent should be whether both parties got moist, but that’s just my logical brain thinking people have sex with someone they desire.

    And of course,
    Ah, Scandinavia. Where they embrace singlemomhood. Hopefully with their amazing powers of parenting the crime will drop, since parents are responsible for their kids, right?
