    Hollywood Hypocrisy: Hard to Tell Difference Between ‘Fifty Shades’ and #MeToo Moments
    The “Fifty Shades” trilogy is far more than just entertainment. The series normalizes the very abuse the #MeToo movement is seeking to eradicate.

    The erotic films seem to roll out the red carpet and put Hollywood’s hypocrisy on brilliant display. While Tinseltown is roiling with allegations of sexual wrongdoing, it’s releasing a trilogy that blurs the lines between sexual abuse and adventurism.

    Hollywood’s #MeToo Hypocrisy
    'Call Me by Your Name' gets recognition despite its unpopularity — in a clear demonstration of the shallowness of Tinseltown

    “At the height of Hollywood’s #MeToo moment, they have just given Oscar nominations to a film glorifying statutory rape. After the year they’ve had, what are they doing?” host Laura Ingraham said during Tuesday night’s “The Ingraham Angle” on Fox News.

    Still, what Hollywood says and does usually tends to be different — so the fact that these entertainment elites continue to be hypocrites when it comes to sexual misconduct should not surprise any of us. If they truly cared about sex abuse and not just their egos or images, they would not be elevating a movie of this sort.

    Hollywood hypocrisy
    Call Me by Your Name is a coming-of-age story about 17-year-old Elio and 24-year-old Oliver having a summer romance in Italy during the summer of 1983. While the film is gentle and watchable, beautifully shot and well-acted, the premise is straight from the headlines of the Kevin Spacey situation, when he was a young 26-year-old man flirting and kissing 14-year-old actors at parties. Had Elio been a female character, the power dynamic would have been another problematic theme as well. Isn’t the idea of older men using their influence part of the problem? Instead, Hollywood has embraced this film as a beautiful love story.

    This isn’t the only example of Hollywood hypocrisy. Remember, this is an industry that criticizes guns for solving nothing while using only guns to solve every action star’s problems. This is just another example of Hollywood saying it wants to solve the problem, but then celebrating it at the same time.

    Harvey Weinstein and Hollywood Hypocrisy
    Did no one think that Weinstein's reprobate behavior was a problem when Harvey and Bob Weinstein released the NC-17 child-porn flick, Kids? Hollywood has a sexual appetite that never seems to be satiated.

    True misogyny is repulsive. There should be no place for it in a civil society, no matter which form it takes. Whether it's a Hollywood executive, a politician, a teacher, a pastor, a rabbi, a journalist, or the next-door neighbor — demeaning women and denying all that makes them beautifully and biologically different is wrong. Yet it is celebrated every day in our television shows, our movies, our music, our politics and in the indefensible defense of an abortion industry that kills nearly half a million girls every year.... There are Harvey Weinsteins all around us. And there are enablers and apologizers like his (now-former) attorney Lisa Bloom (daughter of faux-feminist, opportunist and attorney Gloria Allred) who will make all kinds of excuses for reprehensible behavior. How we defend human dignity, especially those who are in vulnerable situations, shows our true humanity. I'm tired of being preached to by the elitist congregation of the Church of Perpetual Contradictions. Sorry, Hollywood. Clean up your own mansions before you pump your faux indignation into our houses.

    It’s 40 years this week since the director and convicted sex offender went on the run. What does his continued success reveal about the film world’s true attitude towards sexual assault?

    What nonsense to make the connection between metoo and fifty shades. In fact it is totally the opposite, metoo is about the lack of freedom/pressuring women into doing things they do not want/abusing/misusing them where as fifty shades is about VOLUNTARY sex.

    I am not in a position to comment on your comment, Peter, having neither seen the movies nor read the books, but I did read the article before posting it and the author does anticipate your objection and replies to it, here:
    While consent might play a role in the trilogy, the romanticization of sexually aggressive behavior and the conflation of love and sex-crazed infatuation certainly overshadows it.
    I take it you don't buy the qualification.

    I have also not seen it, but from what I know it still is totally about consent in the end, something that the dirtbags who were targeted by metoo did not understand or did not care about. And Polanski is a pervert who needs to be jailed.

    Nor have we seen the private moments of alleged harassment in the news. So how do we come by our "knowledge" (=your "from what I know") of what these moments were "totally about" (your words), or that they were not at all in any degree "about consent in the end"?

    No, my comment as you well know, was about the books and the movie we were discussing and how the people there have sex with consent. That is what my comment was about. To then take that comment to the Metoo movement is just ridiculous. And we do know what these moments are about because of the testimony of many women who were abused and harassed by asshole men who were in power and used that power to abuse and harass these women. And they did not consent to be abused.

    You were talking about the MeToo movement as well -- talking authoritatively, to boot, about matters you have not been privy to. And this last piece of business from you prompted the question I put to you in my reply:

    In both cases -- Fifty Shades and MeToo -- you were commenting authoritatively on something you were not privy to.
    Thus my question to you:
    So how do we come by our "knowledge" (=your "from what I know") of what these moments were "totally about" (your words), or that they were not at all in any degree "about consent in the end"?

    You "know" because you choose to believe one side against the other side in a matter that was private and that you did not yourself observe, yes?

    Re: Sexual Hypocrisy

    Why?
    Why do we believe allegations over denials?
    Riddle me that, Batman.
