Didnt say it was, and as a survivor myself, I’m pretty keenly aware of the depth and breadth of the issue.

Eh, its what i lived through, dont be sorry. It kills me to see all this horsefeathers coming out and think about how it complicates lives, but I know it can and does exist. How do you stop it? The best thing a survivor can do is continue on and dont let it destroy you. Dont let it ruin you. It should ruin the rapist.

Wait until this trickles down from Hollywood to the corporate and university level. We're about to see dozens (or hundreds) of powerful men get taken down for being licentious sleazebags

Oh, man, I read an article about that cult a few months ago and I was just shaking my head the whole time. They sound like something out of a really bad Law & Order episode, yet they somehow actually exist?

Holy crap...makes that other Smallville actor's drug enterprise seem like a petty thing now.

Apparently Kristen Kreuk, also from Smallville, was involved in that cult as well.

I think it'd probably be easy to have not heard the rumors.

if you haven't been paying him enough attention to have heard the rumors, then i don't see why anything about him would be a big surprise. i'm seeing a lot of "no, not him too!", as if he's some super unlikely candidate to be a creep.

people are saying that because they're fans not because they're surprised

anyone who has even a passing familiarity with his career isn't surprised. even if all you did was consume his artistic material and heard nothing in the media you wouldn't really be surprised.

Plus he's a dude with daughters, and he's made them and saying some pretty dead-on things about gender politics and inequality and the like as a huge part of his act.

I knew about the Louis CK stuff specifically from this forum I think. Not sure I would have known otherwise.

Surprised? I really don't think I can be surprised at this point with how prevent it seems.

His "turning women into [expletive] angels" joke hasn't aged well.

EDIT: heh, that word IS censored.

I’ve been hoping the allegations against Louie weren’t true but based upon his reaction to them and what not I kind of assumed they were and it’s a bummer if that’s what’s about to be released

Yeah, that he, of all people, would basically clam up and go radio silent over just about everything as soon as this started being talked about seemed pretty telling, IMO. And then the weird horsefeathers of basically inserting it into his TV show and now this movie? The guy used to have no qualms being interviewed or going on shows before, but he largely went silent outside of releasing the stuff he made and only doing interviews at those times on shows where it was obvious he felt safe.

Like, it seemed strange that he was nowhere to be found in that recent Dana Carvey Show documentary that almost everyone else on the show participated in, even though he was one of the head writers and even though they use clips of him in recent years going on talk shows and talking about the show. He responded to this stuff creeping out by basically withdrawing as much as possible, which seemed very odd for someone so outspoken.
