I only get a little glimpse of what must be near round the clock coverage in the 24-hour news cycle of this.

Me, I'm not a fan of people, mostly women, coming forward to say they were raped. If there's no proof it becomes he said, she said and the current cultural norm is to believe the victim.

Also, there are (petty?) decades-old grievances coming to light. A good example of this is a woman who still holds a grudge that Ben Aflac (whom I despise as a person) grabbed her boob on TV. Let it go. Or, am I wrong?

I think he does need to be tried in the public court of opinion because it needs to be called out. It is a culture that protected him and this needs to keep going until everyone who is a part of that culture is known and shamed for taking part in it. We got to this point by people not treating rape culture as an actual culture. You're not wrong about people using this to settle grudges though. There will definitely be a lot of women using this to get revenge on execs who didn't hire them for valid reasons. Hopefully, with social media, those who are liars will be exposed.

I wish they media would do more to distinguish incidences of sexual assault.     For instance, there is a  massive difference between someone using a crowbar to break into someone's home and hold a knife to their throat and rape them....   and someone coming onto a movie mogul to get a part in a movie - and when the mogul takes advantage of the situation by patting one's ass or making a suggestive remark, etc.  instead of just walking away or not having the encounter in the first place.  Since supposedly "everyone" knew that Harvey Weinstein sexually assaulted actresses, why would an actress ever allow themselves to be caught in a compromising position with him?    By the way, it was Harvey's brother BOB that finally exposed Harvey for being a monster.
