Normalized Sin

Believing all women- 3 women have come forward and accused scientist Neil DeGrasse Tyson of sexual misconduct, one accusation quite grievous.

I’m willing to wait and see what turns up, but one aspect of his own explanation is just a little bit bizarre.  A woman accuses him of groping under her dress without her consent, and he explains he was merely looking to see if the planet Pluto was included on a tattoo of the solar system she had running up her arm, so it  “was simply a search under the covered part of her shoulder of the sleeveless dress.”  You know another way he could have found out if Pluto was included on a tattoo on a total stranger’s arm?  Asking.  Just asking.    Do I care that much? If he raped the woman, I do care. I want to know. I want him punished if it happened. The rape accusation (from his college days) should be handled as a crime, which would begin by the victim properly reporting it and then an investigation. Until then, I don’t have enough information to have an opinion other than there isn’t enough information.

Meanwhile, I mostly I am amused by all those on the left rediscovering the principles of innocent until proven guilty and lamenting what the Me-Too movement has become and how these types of not really assault accusations are going to harm real victims.  You don’t say.

But also, it’s still kinda creepy that he didn’t think he needed to ask a woman before moving her sleeve and poking his fingers on the tattoo on her shoulder under her dress and we should all just understand he just gets excited over cosmic bling but he’s sorry she was bothered and he wants us to know he only just now heard about it 9 years later, as though the action of slipping his fingers under her dress to slide her sleeveless dress around enough that he could see and touch a possible tattoo of Pluto is otherwise perfect normal thing to do to a stranger.  There’s a lot of subtle ‘but the woman’ digs in his apologies and defenses, but whatever. Me Too has been weaponized by the left and it won’t stop until their weapon misfires in their hands, so maybe this will be that moment.

What?  No, I don’t believe it, either.

Moving on, we all know Hollywood is a sordid, dirty little place behind the scenes. They knew it even better than we did, which is the real reason child rapist Roman Polanski has been supported and defended for decades, and it’s the real reason the pornographic filming of the onscreen assault of a teenaged actress by Marlon Brando in Last Tango in Paris were acclaimed as great art.  The actress had made public the fact that she was not told in advance details of the scene and that she felt humiliated and raped by the director- Bertolucci- and Brando.  But nobody paid much attention to that until ten years later when the Bertolucci said the same thing and justified it because ‘he needed to be free’ to pursue his creative dream, and “because he wanted her onscreen humiliation and rage to be real. “I wanted Maria to feel, not to act,” he said.”

Read this  while keeping in mind that these people have spent decades deliberately transforming our culture, normalizing what should have been appalling and disturbing, and we have flocked to their products for more (here’s an excerpt):

“Phillips says Les Moonves, then the head of Warner Bros. television just as its shows Friends and ER were becoming blockbusters, grabbed her and forced her to perform oral sex when she met with him to seek an appointment with a casting director. She fled the office. Then she had to decide whether to say something, which would brand her a “troublemaker.” If so, nothing good would happen. She’d be ushered out to pursue the career opportunities at Denny’s, and another young honey would take her place.

“Nobody knows anything” was the Hollywood mantra popularized by the late screenwriter William Goldman. Yet in a town that does nothing more assiduously than it does gossip, we’re expected to believe nobody knew anything about what was happening in Les Moonves’s office, and in Harvey Weinstein’s, and in Bryan Singer’s? It beggars belief. They knew. They all knew. The men knew. The women knew. The potted plants certainly knew. Nobody said anything. They didn’t want to jeopardize their next gig. “Nobody says anything” is more like it. It’s show-merta. “Hollywood mafia” isn’t a joke anymore: These acts alleged by so many actresses are crimes. This was a systematic criminal enterprise in which untold numbers of people either abetted felonies or did not report them, with money clawed away from publicly traded corporations repeatedly used to buy silence.

When you see a lot of movies and TV shows, you do a lot of wondering about what happened behind the scenes. Why did that actress get so many parts? Why did this one rise so quickly? Why did that one disappear? Wasn’t that nude scene gratuitous? Put on the magical sunglasses and you see the ugliness.”

Read the rest.

There’s also Open Secrets, a documentary exposing the culture of pedophilia in Hollywood.  Speaking of normalizing:  “This is not a terrible thing unless you think it is. It’s just something that happens to you in your life.”  Michael Harrah, founder and former chair of the SAG-AFTRA Young Performers Committee, speaking of sexual crimes against children in Hollywood.  Read more here.

Woe to us, who have called good evil good and good evil for so long, and normalized it in the pursuit of a fraudulent form of happiness and mere entertainment.
