Yeeeahah, right.  That's like having a Canadian girlfriend.

It's the organization that hands out the Golden Globes, and it is/was notorious for being very open to
monetary influence on who gets those awards.  The rumour is that Pia Zadora's "Best Newcomer"
(which she was absolutely not eligable for) was bought and paid for by her billionaire husband.

Needless to say, it is absolutely (not) shocking that anyone in it would commit less than above board
activities.

Boy, are you taking me back.  But yeah, if that's the case, I'm sure it's rife with abuse and unsavory behavior.

"His left hand reaches around, grabs my ass cheek, and one of his fingers touches me in the taint,"

That would piss me off quite a bit, but unless the guy who did it was 300lbs and a black belt, I would be more irritated than traumatized.

I wouldn't let it ruin my career.

But I might use the story to try and regain some relevance, especially if I needed the money.

Before I finished reading the headline, I thought he was going to say he was sexually harassed by Rachel Weisz.  Hawt.
 
2018-02-22 05:07:18 PM  
Well that was anti-climatic. I was at least expecting attempted surprise buttsex or something.

What the fark kind of outfit was he wearing where this guy could touch his taint?  Assless chaps?
 
2018-02-22 05:09:14 PM  
He said it was a joke.

I can see a little butt pinch as a joke between to colleagues who are are good friends. Getting the finger up into taint rubbing area is maybe less of a joke.

I feel like if it involves my taint and its a joke then it would have to be a REALLY funny joke. Like I would tell everyone about it and they would be in tears laughing it was so funny.
 
2018-02-22 05:09:57 PM  
Wonder why he's been such a quiet American?
 
2018-02-22 05:09:57 PM  
And I thought all the flops he made, his crap attitude on set and him deciding not to do the Journey as a franchise, which was seen as a comeback vehicle for him, killed his career.

I'm still relatively surprised at how many men in my social circle have a #metoo story. I was even more surprised at the 'suck it up, dude. It's worse for girls' responses from a few of my (now former) female acquaintances.

I Know, I just like saying assless chaps.

I am a small person, and have no ass, it would literally impossible with me wearing just about any type of pants for you to ring my taint if I were clothed.

The guy must have had some farging big hands to simultaneous ass grab and taint rub at the same time.

hah, i would have totally frozen up if it happened to me, wtf, I don't think I'd mind an ass grabbing at all, but the finger is way too much

I'm prepared now and I know exactly how far is too far and will result in a good throttling.

But it is worse for girls. They are at a tremendous physical disadvantage in the majority of cases. Brendan Fraiser and Terry Crews are big dudes, capable of defending themselves in primal situations. 105 lb Mira Sorvino? Not so much.

I have a #metoo story. I was in The Fenwick in Wan Chai one night, and I lost count of how many times my ass, taint and package were groped by Indo and Philippine girls looking for hourly clients. This despite waving my wedding ring around to signal I was just there to drink beers with my friends after the horse races. Pity me.

Don't go there. That could be the one actual defense he has.

"Due to my incredible mass I, due to no intent or fault of my own naturally generate a gravity well which pulled those young starlets right on top of me!"

Besides, if it's a gravity well I don't think Brendan or Terry would h ave any better luck than Mira Sorvino. If anything she's got a better chance with such a light frame.

He's a farking gorilla. Of course he's capable of overpowering a pint size starlet.

If your argument is that, in general, women are not at a physical disadvantage in sexual assault encounters with larger men, well, you're wrong.

No, you can take your straman for a walk. He held the same power over those women as he held over Crews or Frasier. None of them reported being physically forced.
