Mugato: Rose McGowan, nice.

I mean, scumbag!


If she had put the money in the bank, it would have been nice.
She gave it apparently to Mickey Rourke's plastic surgeon.

Says the farker in a thread full of "liberal" farkers calling it terrible. You obviously don't read the threads before sharing your verbal blumpkins with us.


Also........ Add me as one more who upon hearing this news, my first reaction was, "Wait... harassing WOMEN? But, I thought he was gay?!?!"

AquaTatanka: Old rich guy thinks he's entitled to the attention of young pretty women?    Well, there's a story that only stretches back for all of recorded history.

/put me with the crowd that didnt know the difference between Harvey Fierstein and Weinstein too


how many old rich women have done the same to young boys/men in hollywood or for that matter how many young boys/men have suffered the same fate as this young women. it isn't talked about under the sexism that boys/men enjoy being sexually abused.

I imagine it's a form you fill out while waiting in the lobby. You go in, get sexually harassed, and a check arrives in 4-6 weeks along with a gift basket.

Alassra: This is awful. Rose McGowan has talked about this (without using his name) several times and why that (along with a few other things) has caused her to shift to being behind the camera.

I don't care who you vote for at the ballot box - manipulating someone because you have power and they don't is WRONG and this is AWFUL, CREEPY, and DISTURBING.

Attacking liberals, while it feels good, is shooting fish in a barrel. Focus on the issue.


If attacking liberals "feels good" to you then you've got bigger problems.  People don't attack conservatives because it "feels good".  People attack conservatives because it is necessary.  I really wish it wasn't.  But it is.

Has your daughter ever expressed any interest in acting?  If she came home crying because a creepy old guy made her give him a "massage" you might care.  All those women he harassed are someone's daughters.
