HOLLYWOOD AND SEXUAL HARRASMENT
It seems Hollywood is having its Catholic moment as it concerns the flood of accusations from celebrities accusing perpetrators of harassment or abuse, some from 40 or more years ago.
Let me ask a dumb question.
As it concern those in authority or actors on the set who make unwanted advances toward the star, be they male or female, would not the very fact that an actor getting the part hinges on the request to get nude in front of those filming, and eventually the whole world, be a form of harassment and their ongoing victimization?
It seems that the Hollywood culture that has glorified sex has caused the very victimization of actors and actresses. Isn't it time for virtus type programs that place safeguards to prevent casting directors from being alone with anyone they are asking to strip to protect those applying for parts? Should there not be a ban on full frontal nudity, actors simulating sex while nude, or actually having sex, to prevent victimization?
HAS ANYONE IN HOLLYWOOD, ADULTS THAT IS, EVERY HEARD OF AVOIDING THE NEAR OCCASIONS OF SIN AND THE ENVIRONMENT THAT COULD LEAD TO VICTIMIZATION?
ISN'T THE WHOLE HOLLYWOOD SCENE OF FREE SEX, SEXUAL SITUATIONS, IN MOVIES AND TELEVISION A SYMPTOM OF A MOLESTING, HARASSING AND ASSAULTING COMMUNITY? SHOULDN'T ACTORS WHO HAVE BEEN VICTIMIZED COME FORWARD AND HELP CHANGE HOLLYWOOD'S ORRUPT CULTURE?
