    I’m so sick of the silence breakers who were paid millions of dollars for their silence, then went on to make lots more movies and lots more millions of dollars, all the while knowing that other women were having to deal with the Harvey W’s of the world. Your check was the hush money. Your check cleared, you enjoyed the money, so hush! Shut up! Bear your burden yourself! You sold out for millions and you got paid well! So hush! It’s called hush money for a reason. Now, to be clear, I’m not talking toor about any children, underage actors etc. You were unable to consent. You were VICTIMS. I am only talking to and about all of the Ashley Judd’s and Selma Hayek’s of the industry. You made a transaction and got paid. You don’t get to go back and whimper about it later. You took the money, and all the boo-hooing now won’t change that. OWN THAT! Accept responsibility for your part in the transaction! Stop siting on your big pile of cash whining that someone victimized you. When you cashed the check, you condoned the behavior.

    ASHLEY JUDD LMAO This is a woman that gets naked in every movie she makeS. It is NEVER ok to sexually assault anyone in anyway, But sorry some women dress provocatively, take provocative photos or even act provocative, ask yourself why are they doing that. Then they get mad and offended when the NATURAL CONCLUSION HAPPENS. i AM MAINLY TALKING ABOUT AJ, not the other women

    Impersonating a Qualified and Legitimate American President: Mr. Trump duped millions of Americans (but three million less than Hillary Clinton) into thinking he was a competent candidate for the highest office in the land. In fact he actually had no experience, zero credentials, a limited education, a third-grade vocabulary, the scruples of a car salesman, the compassion of a rabid dog, an inability to read or write, no familiarity with the Constitution, and a vendetta against his predecessor that has made it impossible for him to make decisions based on the best interests of the people but rather only on the depth of his resentment and contempt. He is merely doing an impersonation of a president and a lousy one at that. Verdict: Deceitful Mimicry/Impeachable

    What is needed to be revealed as well is that a great deal of denunciations of sexual harassment are false, made by people that intend to charge someone just to gain popularity and therefore to benefit from the publicity around him/her, or to make blackmail on the alleged agressor, demanding money in exchange of the complaint withdrawal.

    This is another liberal propaganda piece. Most of these women just #piggybacked (metoo) on the people who actually spoke out. Most got payed off and/or continued to work in Hollywood dispite what they knew about these sexual abusers. Bunch of BS, and by the way most of the accused are completely free and dont have to face any jail time. NOTHING WAS ACCOMPLISHED, they only got some people to retire early.

    I applaud those who expose corruption, but to do this with an obvious political agenda both undermines this cause and shows the rest of us your true idealism. Many of my friends and I have added Time magazine to the 'list' of untrustworthy journalism outlets...so we welcome you to the disgraced ones in our eyes. Wake up and see you're not fooling as many as you think.

    the #MeToo movement is dangerous and gives any woman the power to destroy a mans reputation just by making an allegation. sexual harassment/assault is such a broad term now, any woman can hop on the trend and claim they were harassed by somebody if they wish. the grey area of sexual harassment is enough to get a man fired and shamed by everybody and that’s absolutely absurd. this hashtag may be good in some cases but it’s so dangerous.
