    Geoffrey Rush had a win today and that dick who ruined the Courier Mail got his ...hooray.

    For too long Christopher Dore has felt entitled to smear and coerce without being held accountable. He supervised the degeneration of QLD's print press to the point that even rusted on Liberal gave up reading the tripe.

    Predictable behavioural pattern emerging.

    Be interesting how many women survive the Hollywood experience. but business is already shying away from gender equity:

    I can see a lot more of this happening as well as secret recording devices to protect men against false charges.

    Wonder how many of the actors who jumped on the bandwagon are being gaslighted

    Problem is the genuinely victimized Women may not be taken seriously because so many non-genuine Women jump on the bandwagon.

    Going to be very hard extinguishing a culture that has been grounded on a successful formula for wealth, influence and fame of the few film moguls, as abhorrent as it may be.

    And can anyone identify many (any) non-genuine women jumping on the band wagon ? I havn't seen any to date beyond bald statements with absolutely no back up evidence.

    On the other side of the ledger... Does anyone seriously believe that even a small minority of people who have been abused have put their hand up at this stage ? Why would you want to expose yourself to the sort of unthinking disbelief that comments like Darc Knights are just taken as read ?

    I think we have a misunderstanding here Rumpy. The incident you referenced (one incident, two reports) was a false sex allegation by a young girl in a current situation. It happens - like other incidents where people try to get someone in trouble or get out of pickle themselves.

    I understood Darc Night to say that because of Me Too many more people are jumping on the band wagon of reporting old sex assault incidents. Things that happened years ago but were buried as just too hard to fight for.

    Actually they were separate incidents bas, you obviously didn't read them.

    One in the UK, one in Oz.

    You didn't have to be Nostradamus to see a whole swag of women actors watching their careers go south after joining the fight.

    But it seems the workplace is also a new front, where females are being relegated to the 1950s secretarial status requiring male protection.

    I don't know one Male who has sexually assaulted in anyway a Female.
    I was once accused of trying to "get on with" a female work colleague who I tried to build rapport with by smiling and being friendly with in Team meetings. There was nothing else whatsoever. She made the accusation after she failed to do her share of work and I had to mention it to the rest of the Team. I quickly got the hell out of that Team.
    I also have had the unfortunate experience of knowing Feminists who claim all Men are Rapists.

    From my experience, the onus of proof always lies with the Male having to prove his innocence.

    In the absence of Weinstein can we pick another bloke to blame for this:

    "
    Italian actress and director Asia Argento was among the first women in the movie business to publicly accuse producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault. She became a leading figure in the #MeToo movement. Her boyfriend, culinary television star Anthony Bourdain, eagerly joined the fight.

    But in the months that followed her revelations about Weinstein last October, Argento quietly arranged to pay $US380,000 to her own accuser: Jimmy Bennett, a young actor and rock musician who said she had sexually assaulted him in a California hotel room years earlier, when he was only two months past his 17th birthday. She was 37. The age of consent in California is 18."
