Which sexual predator will you miss most?

Asked by Aethelwine (42961points) November 20th, 2017

Please do not take this question as making light of the situation Most of you should know by now that I am a victim of rape and sexual harassment. I take these allegations seriously.

Many prominent men are losing work due to allegations of sexual harassment or worse. This question is not a debate about what they did or did not do.

What I’d like to know is whose work will you miss?

I’m saddened by the loss of Charlie Rose. I watch his show a few times a week.

Rose (so far)

Louis CK. I’m a big fan of his standup, as well as his other work. I highly recommend Horace and Pete’s, if you haven’t seen it.

Woody Allen, I suppose. The way things are going, he will get dragged into it.

It is difficult to predict just which careers will be affected, but an allegation which stunned me is the one involving Dustin Hoffman.
If someone had said twenty or thirty years ago that Dustin was making moves on women, I would have stood in line for that.
He doesn’t seem the type, at all.

Kevin Spacey, on the other hand, well, none of those stories surprise me.
I doubt it will endanger his career. He has long been type cast as a villain.
I do wonder at the sudden flood. If one person faces an accusation, then suddenly others come forward, that is one thing, but suddenly we have many accusers, and multiple accused, all flooding the media at once.
Many of the accused are pretty much done already, old and never or nearly never working.

Oliver Stone.

If we’re lumping them all together, as we shouldn’t, I vote Louis C.K. too. But I really don’t want him to be considered the same as a Weinstien.

If we count the dead/really old, Bill Cosby broke my heart, and Michael Jackson is someone I still listen to. Michael Jackson was/is my favorite homosexual pedophile…

Donald Drumpf. Eventually. Hopefully.

Don’t be so quick to dismiss them.

I think that you will shortly see blowback from the accusations, either by the accused fighting back in court (and winning) or by some of the women turning out to be opportunistic liars.

Yes, we have to take abuse seriously, but not all abuse is equal. We’re going to see a reaction to painting all men with the same brush.

Your question is premature.

“Predator?” That is one harsh name for what is in reality ALL men, not that ALL men are such scamps as those who have been mentioned in the media.
‘Certain sexually driven rascals’ might be a better term.

I’m really upset with Al Franken. I don’t want to let a predator stay in office, but if his seat flips, then bills that are very destructive to people like me will have a much easier time passing the Senate. I wish he had been better, and that we were not in this position.

Eh, I wouldn’t lump Franken in as a sexual predator just yet.

filmfann's avatar

@Darth_Algar is right. There is a discernible difference between the immature behavior of Al Franken and the perverse and flat out rapist actions of Harvey Weinstein and Louis CK.

Kevin Spacey, I liked him in everything he did. He was one of my favourite actors.

Aethelwine's avatar

^I agree. House of Cards was one of my favorite shows.

Brock from Pokemon.

Oh! Pepe! Yes, that smooth talking, pussy grabbing skunk is one of my favorites.

“Watch”: how it’s done by a master!

Patty_Melt's avatar

Oh, no! Not Matt Lauer!
Well, I never would have suspected him.

Garrison Keillor is also beloved.

At this point, I won’t be surprised if Steven Spielberg or Martin Scorsese have allegations of misconduct
