Harvey Weinstein 的另一个受害者,亚裔女性,出来实名叙述自己的遭遇:

‘Harvey Weinstein Told Me He Liked Chinese Girls’
Why it took me more than 20 years to tell my #MeToo story.

By Rowena Chiu
Ms. Chiu is a former assistant to Harvey Weinstein.
What happened on that night would shape the rest of my life. Unbeknown to me, I was about to keep a secret — a devastating, suffocating secret, one that would drive me to attempt suicide twice, one that I wouldn’t breathe a word of to my husband of a decade, one that would silence me for the next 21 years.

NDA 这种没人性的法律武器为什么还没有被禁止呢?替权贵助纣为虐的律师和HR这些人并不比 Harvey Weinstein 好。

Ronan Farrow 出了一本书,我很犹豫要不要看一下,看了会不会气死。

在新鲜空气上的访谈:

https://www.npr.org/programs/fresh-air/ ... 2019-10-15

It makes me feel sad to hear him call Woody Allen "my father."

他和别的调查记者报道的事情,都不是围绕着川普或 Harvey Weinstein 的孤立现象,而是长期持续的现实,只是没人揭露罢了。

这个David Boies从小就牛!
大牛早婚,才21岁就俩娃。大学在没什么名气的地方念了两年,没毕业。当时Northwestern法学院为了招生,允许大学没毕业的人去念法学院,于是大牛就这么进去了。然后他就把证据法教授的老婆睡了。证据法教授就跟学校说,这个学校有他没我,有我没他,你们赶紧把他给我弄走!Dean就找他谈话了,说你快点转走吧。大牛就说,那我要去耶鲁。于是Northwestern的Dean就跟耶鲁忽悠了一番,大牛就去耶鲁了。耶鲁是排名第一的法学院啊!从此开启大牛开挂的法律生涯。
这么牛的人,小时候竟然有阅读障碍,三年期才会看书!我们法学院同学八卦起来都觉得他真是个神奇的人 :worthy:

看到新闻说 Alphabet 的 David Drummond 把手里的 Google 股票都卖了,这是要跑路的意思吗?
Alphabet shareholders sued the board last January for allegedly covering up sexual misconduct by executives. The lawsuit named Drummond as well as Android co-founder Andy Rubin, who was given an exit package of $90 million by Alphabet after an internal investigation determined that sexual misconduct claims against him were credible.
跟 Drummond 同时被控诉的 Andy Rubin 是已经被解雇的意思吗?

In related news ...

加州民主党庭外和解三项对前主席 Eric Bauman 的性骚扰与报复的诉讼。
The California Democratic Party has reached settlements in three lawsuits alleging sexual harassment and workplace retaliation involving its former leader, Eric Bauman.
细看略 confused,原来这位主席还是男女通吃。
One of the lawsuits was filed in April by William Floyd, who served as Bauman’s assistant from March 2016 until November 2018 and claimed that Bauman performed oral sex on him without his consent on at least three occasions.

That same month, a second lawsuit was filed by former party operations director Tina McKinnor, former communications director John Vigna and party activist Spencer Dayton alleging racial discrimination, retaliation, sexual assault and harassment by Bauman, and claiming that the party failed to protect them.

那文章写得有点click bate 吧?里面也说 Drummond 这批股票跟之前两次都是10b5-1, 也就是事先定好到点就自动卖的,这种设定一旦开始有两个月(??好像,忘了)封锁不许自由买卖任何同公司股票。而且手里还有92个米股票,要跑路也还得再卖至少一次才行。也许是掐着二月必须回应诉讼的点卖也有可能?不知道。Rubin 2014就离开谷歌了。
Drummond sold over 28,000 of both Class A and C stock, the filings said. He still owns more than 67,000 Class C shares valued at about $92 million, as of Friday. The share sales were part of a 10b5-1 trading plan, meaning they were pre-arranged.

It’s the third straight month in which Drummond has dumped a significant amount of stock, following sales of over $70 million in November and again in December. The latter sale occurred just before the announced departures of co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin. For all of 2018, Drummond sold about $70 million of stock, filings show.
He looked like a small panther, and he moved like a patch of night.

So Drummond is not going away? What does it take ...?

今天也不知怎么了,又冒出各种新闻。例如 Monty Python 成员 Terry Gilliam 的访谈:

https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-ente ... 69136.html
“In the age of #MeToo, here’s a girl who takes responsibility for her state,” says Gilliam. “Whatever happened in this character’s life, she’s not accusing anybody. We’re living in a time where there’s always somebody responsible for your failures, and I don’t like this. I want people to take responsibility and not just constantly point a finger at somebody else, saying, ‘You’ve ruined my life.’”
It looks like he missed the word "other" before "people" in that sentence.
I understand that men have had more power longer, but I’m tired, as a white male, of being blamed for everything that is wrong with the world.
Oh no! A white male is tired! How can we let that happen?!

看到一个美国医生的 survey 的数据,58% 女性外科医生表示工作中被性骚扰过。Survey 出处如下:
https://eventpilotadmin.com/web/page.ph ... 9&id=85.06

25%的男性外科医生表示被性骚扰过,但是回答这个调查的男医生人数颇少。

我又想起那句名言。据有人的挖掘,不是王尔德说的,来源很可能是精神分析学。

Everything is about sex except sex. Sex is about power (or aggression).

细看这篇报道,我觉得涂掉抗议标语上 "vagina" 这个词,跟涂掉伟大领袖的名字,其实一样恶劣。

然而我又不觉得非常惊讶。之前说过了,美国文化自发自觉地粉饰历史,吹嘘自己,功夫又细腻又高明,把全世界都骗了近百年(连黑人都是二战参军到了外国才发现,原来如此)。现在终于到处露馅儿,丑态百出,再难维持这精心营造的广告形象。但自欺的爆裂总是比欺人还要慢一步。

Don Draper is still at it!

美国没有统一的传统文化种族identity, 它的identity 就是勤劳就能致富,种族出身不是问题的美国梦。这当然不完全是真的,但是历史上发生的也不少,所以也不算假的。丘吉尔早就总结过,美国人一定会做出正确的选择,等他们把其他选择都试完之后。所以我们耐心的斗争下去吧……
