I feel like this is a very important thread considering a lot of people cut Hollywood abusers a lot of slack just because “they’re work is very good and entertaining”. There are plenty of other Hollywood actresses/actors that don’t pull off gross shit like this, support them instead…. At the end of the day, we need to put the victims first and stop letting this shit slide.

Full access to the thread incase anyone wants to open the sources.

I’ve added more sources to provide more evidence since these are very serious crimes and some people might not feel comfortable with just depending on a twitter thread:

how do u know the porn you’re watching is totally consensual

that these women weren’t forced into this work

that these women are of age

that these women were treated properly on set

that these women are okay with it being released in the format it has been released(onto which website/etc)

you fucking don’t

IF YOU’RE WATCHING HIGH-PRODUCTION PORN FROM MAINSTREAM COMPANIES, YOU CAN NOW BE CERTAIN OF ALL OF THESE THINGS. The major companies require an STD test every fourteen days, and some even require WEEKLY tests. They go to great lengths to make sure the performers feel comfortable on set and their actions are consensual, before and after filming.

They go to very, VEEEEEEEERY, perhaps annoyingly great lengths to verify age. If I lose ONE of my government-issued ID’s, I’m totally fucked fr work with these people. We also have to sign a LOT of paperwork, on video, while LISTENING to someone tell us “this will be published on the internet. is that okay?” to which we answer YES.
More into amateur porn? That’s okay! You can still take measures to ensure that you’re buying safe, consensual porn! By buying it DIRECTLY from female performers on websites like MyGirlFund. Then, you don’t even have to give money to one of the big porn companies, which many of us understandably have some qualms with. It goes straight to her!
I realize there are problems in sex work. NONE OF THEM GET SOLVED BY CONVINCING PEOPLE TO STOP PAYING US. YOU ARE STARVING SEX WORKERS WHEN YOU DO THAT.But hey, when have radfems ever given a fuck about the women they actively harm with their misguided efforts?

In the modern idiom:

“So Bob said […]” indicates that I am directly quoting Bob.

“Then Bob was like […]” indicates that I am paraphrasing Bob.

“And Bob was all […]” indicates that I am paraphrasing Bob, and additionally I am being a dick about it.

I don’t know about you, but I think it’s fantastic that we have a specific grammatical convention for that.

Sometimes it is your fault.. Sometimes you don’t listen well enough, you’re selfish, you’re rude and you aren’t always right. Sometimes you fucked it up and tbh that’s okay. It happens, learn from it, apologize and keep it moving. Just because you fucked up doesn’t mean you’re a bad person. Don’t dwell on it

On this thursday is Rosh Hashanna:

- this is the jewish new year, we are entering the year 5778. It comemorates when adam and eve were created.

- If you see someone jewish, or have jewish friends and family, say “L’Shana Tova (Le-Sha-Nah-Toe-Vah). It’s a greeting and a wish for a happy new year!

- We dip apples in honey to remind us of the sweetness of life and to bring sweetness into ourselves for a new year

-We eat a circular challah to symbolize the cycles of time, the challah often has raisins in it to add extra sweetness

-This is a happy holiday, full of joy

Beginning on Friday, September 30th is Yom Kippur:

- This is the jewish day of atonement, when we think about our wrongdoings of the past year and think about how we can commit to doing better in the next year.

- Many Jewish people fast, abstaining from food and water from sundown to sundown. The fast is roughly 25 hours. HOWEVER, if you need to eat, you may. There are lots of reasons that people may not fast, like recovering from an eating disorder, a medical condition like diabetes, or having to take medication with food. The elderly, children, and pregnant people should not fast.

- This is a solemn holiday, many people spend all day in synagogue in deep prayer. 

- On Yom Kippur, wish someone a peaceful or meaningful fast. Some people may take offense to the concept of having an “easy” or “enjoyable” fast because Yom Kippur is not about ease or comfort. 

- There is a breaking of the fast at sundown, this is usually a joyous event

Together, these make up the High Holy Days, the most important week in Judaism. 

please reblog to educate and spread awareness

Other pro-tips:

1. Jewish holidays begin at sun down the night before and end at sun down the night of. So, for example, Rosh Hashanah starts wednesday night and ends Friday night. However, Friday night starts the Sabbath (Shabbat) which ends Saturday night.

2. If you’re not comfy with Hebrew, happy new year or happy holiday will do just fine.

3. Some people celebrate one day of Rosh Hashanah, some two. Don’t judge either practice.

4. Side note: Rosh Hashanah is a lunar new year. Most East Asian countries and predominantly Muslim countries have them. They all fall at different times. Don’t call Chinese New Year “Lunar New Year.” I don’t know who started that, but it’s offensive to like eighty five other cultures, seriously.

5. I have never been offended by having someone wish me an easy fast, in fact, that is common practice in the Jewish circles I have always run in, but I guess it doesn’t hurt not to. I just wouldn’t worry if you’ve done it before.

6. Jewish holy days and holidays don’t work like Christian ones, for one thing, there’s too many of them, but for purposes of comprehension, imagine this is Thanksgiving and Christmas, rolled into the space of ten days and far far less secular. These are two of the most important holy days of the year, followed by Sukkot, Shemini Atzeret, and Simchat Torah, which all hold their own import. The season is about a month. To give you some idea of the import of these holidays: I am very close with my family, I go home for Rosh Hashanah rather than thanksgiving every year.

7. This is a big one: if you have Jewish co-workers who are taking off for these holy days, for the love of everything holy and true, do NOT act like they are taking a vacation. They are taking leave time for holy days that, while meaningful, are emotionally, spiritually, and physically exhausting. Be kind.

Great information for the upcoming High Holy Days. I hope all my Jewish friends and readers have bright, sweet, and satisfying holidays!

I get what JKR was trying to do with having Mrs Weasley knit sweaters for everyone for Christmas because they were poor, but the amount of dyed yarn that she would have had to buy to make 7+ brightly colored, thick sweaters in varying size every year would have been so expensive omg

I have the theory that maybe they had a sheep or two, too, but it just isn’t mentioned because of the other theory that Harry is obvious af and it wasn’t important to the narrative. So along with the sweaters being handmade (which obviously makes them special) and monogrammed for each receiver, maybe perhaps the yarn was handspun too. You never know. I like the headcanon at least.

She’s thrifty, she definitely knows how to get inexpensive yarn. Harry never asked about it, so it’s not in the books. People forget it’s ALL in Harry’s POV.

So yeah, they definitely have sheep, like they have chickens. And they possibly also have recieved odd half-balls of yarn also from Arthur’s coworkers. People who know the Weasley would know Molly knits.

Also if you’re unravelling grown-out-of jumpers, there’s at least a little bit of recycling going on.

Since November, more than two dozen women - of all ages, but mostly in their twenties - had approached me in restaurants, theaters, and stores to apologize for not voting or for not doing more to help my campaign. I responded with forced smiles and tight nods. On one occasion, an older woman dragged her adult daughter over by the arm to come talk to me and ordered her to apologize for not voting - which she did, head bowed in contrition. I wanted to stare right in her eyes and say ‘You didn’t vote? How could you note vote?! You abdicated your responsibility as a citizen at the worst possible time! And now you want *me* to make *you* feel better?’ Of course I didn’t say any of that.These people were looking for absolution that I just couldn’t give. We all have to live with the consequences of our decisions.

Sometimes in the course of my work I come across really amusing industry websites, like the Iowa Corn Promotion Board. I couldn’t figure out how best to process my experience with this website, so I made a moodboard. 

Dang, it’s good to be a corn farmer. 

@seananmcguire how does The Corn feel about its promotion board?

Fact #1:
laser sights don’t help your aim; they’re highly inaccurate at any range longer than a couple dozen yards and only good for rapid target acquisition

Fact #2:
absolutely every precision shooter knows this

Fact #3:
almost nobody else knows this because movies have erroneously taught people that snipers paint a red dot on the target’s chest before they shoot them

Fact #4:
any nazi who notices a red dot on their chest while giving a speech is going to immediately stop talking and get off the stage, probably while shitting themself

Fact #5:
laser pointers are cheap, legal, and easy to conceal, and unless there’s smoke or dust or something in the air, theres no way to know where it’s coming from

so apparently some people feel like it’s annoying when someone engages with a lot of stuff from the same person, like going through their ship tag and liking all the content there. 

hearing about this, i was immediately paranoid about reblogging literally anything from anyone i don’t talk to on a regular basis.

so to save others from the same paranoia, i’m gonna say that if you like every single post on my goddamn blog it is okay. i might be kind of concerned about your level of time management, going through 23,000 posts, but it wouldn’t bother me.

Vulture reports on why Colin Trevorrow left Episode IX – per “speculation from a ranking Hollywood movie insider with direct knowledge of the productions on both The Book of Henry and Jurassic World” – that the director’s ego might have gotten in the way. Basically – do not mess with Kathleen Kennedy.

“When the reviews for Book of Henry came out, there was immediately conjecture that Kathy was going to dump him because they weren’t thrilled with working with him anyway,” the executive continues. “He’s a difficult guy. He’s really, really, really confident. Let’s call it that.”

Previous reports claimed script issues were at the source of the split.

Something that’s fascinated me about the whole “why can’t Kathleen Kennedy keep a man [director]???” discourse is how few people seem to realize that Kennedy’s behavior is, in fact, something we should see more of, not less. Because what she is reacting to is a widespread problem that has, until now, gone unchecked: the problem of asshole directors.

Kennedy is in an unprecedented position in Hollywood for a woman. She is in control of the entirety of the Star Wars franchise—what movies are made, what stories are told, what merchandise is sold—and she is the final authority. Disney will no doubt replace her the minute the franchise stumbles, but the past two movies have gotten good reviews and staggering box office numbers and The Last Jedi looks to be just as successful, so she is, for now, in one of the safest spots in Hollywood. The last female executive with that kind of power was probably Lucille Ball.

Which means that if you are part of the franchise, you answer to Kennedy and moreover you have to play by her rules. The stories have to get her buy-in, the actors have to get her approval, and the directors have to behave the way she expects them to. And it’s very apparent that Gareth Edwards, Josh, Trank, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, and now Colin Treverrow have all fallen short of those expectations in one way or another. (You may say to yourself “wait a minute, Gareth Edwards wasn’t fired!” To which I will reply, “lol.”)

Now, nothing hugely out of the ordinary has been reported in re: Edwards or Trank or Lord & Miller or Trevorrow’s antics — mostly it’s been stuff like “ego” or unprofessional behavior or whatnot. But that’s exactly my point: white male directors are, for the first time, being fired over things that they should have been getting fired for years ago.

Hollywood is far too enamored of the genius auteur trope (and Kennedy is no exception, hence why she hired these dudes in the first place) and indulges the most horrifying behavior from the men it deems “visionary.” Woody Allen, Roman Polanski, Mel Gibson, Sean Penn, Johnny Depp, David O. Russell: men with long and ugly histories are venerated without a second thought, so much so that the ones who are merely outrageous don’t even ping the radar. Rupert Sanders has an affair with Kristen Stewart and gets her booted out of the sequel to “Snow White” (when Stewart played the title character); Jennifer Lawrence tears her diaphragm hyperventilating while filming Darren Aronofsky’s latest whatever-the-fuck thing “mother” is gonna turn out to be; Lars Von Trier…continues to be himself. None of it raises an eyebrow (with the exception of the Sanders/Stewart fling, but that’s because people blamed Stewart, who was 21, for seducing Sanders, who was 40) and all of those men have very successful careers. Being an asshole is perfectly acceptable — everywhere else but Star Wars.

On Star Wars, Kennedy is holding the directors she hires to a very basic standard of professionalism and none of them are able to handle it; and for the first time in their lives, they’re actually suffering the consequences. Bad scripts are thrown out and writers replaced; bad dailies and reports of cast unhappiness get directors the boot. It’s astonishing — but it shouldn’t be. There’s no indication that Kennedy is too demanding or that her standards are too high; but there’s every indication that these dudes have been getting away with absolute murder on their other sets. 

The real question then, the one that nobody’s asked yet and probably never will, isn’t “why is Kathleen Kennedy firing these guys,” but rather, “Why do any of these guys have a career in the first place?”

Plus, here’s the thing: This is motherfucking Star Wars.

That invisible line of people of people standing behind you waiting to do your job if you don’t want to say “how high” when your boss says “jump” that the rest of the planet’s been threatened with for its entire working life a) is present for the first time in a decade for some of these guys and b) includes literally the entire film industry.

A lot of them have been getting away with their bullshit for so long at least partially because they’d gotten to the point where if they walk, there very well may be no movie, or the movie may suffer dramatically for them having walked.  There’s no one standing behind Luc Besson just aching to direct a weird bubble-gum scifi movie about military accountability and environmental rejuvenation.  There was no one really standing behind Edgar Wright just dying to direct Ant-Man.

But this is Star Wars.  Half the film industry would sell their souls in a pact with Satan to get your spot on the project, and the other half already has and their demon agents are desperately working on delivering.  It’s the sort of property that’s universally beloved.  People grew up loving it and want a chance to put their mark on it.  People know half the planet will show up twice to see it in theaters.  It can make people rich and famous beyond their previous dreams.  If you’ve got a name to make or a message to send or you want your slice of the pie, this is the closest thing to a guaranteed ticket to that outcome.

Disney could be publicly wiping their asses with the last director’s dailies, and there would still be a line that would make ComicCon blush to fill their shoes.  The real shocker* is that, having watched the number of directors getting let go ahead of them for failing to meet baseline standards of behavior or understanding that this is a franchise film and they can’t just do whatever the fuck they want, they’re still not moderating their own behavior on the project in an attempt to avoid the same fate.

*

Let’s not forget that Kennedy is in the enviable position of being in charge and the unenviable position of being a WOMAN in charge. I absolutely think some of the turnover is asshole directors expecting a woman to roll over for them (wording intended), and a fair amount of the conflict we hear about is arrogant men being challenged for the first time by a woman who outranks them.

IME there are very few men who can handle a situation like that without an escalation of their volatile and abusive behaviour.

Others might have a different view, but here’s how I see the distinction between sexism and misogyny. When a husband tells his wife, “I can’t quite explain why and I don’t even like admitting this, but I don’t want you to make more money than me, so please don’t take that amazing job offer,” that’s sexism. He could still love her deeply and be a great partner in countless ways. But he holds tight to an idea that even he knows isn’t fair about how successful a woman is allowed to be. Sexism is all the big and little ways that society draws a box around women and says, “You stay in there.” Don’t complain because nice girls don’t do that. Don’t try to be something women shouldn’t be. Don’t wear that, don’t go there, don’t think that, don’t earn too much. It’s not right somehow, we can’t explain why, stop asking.

We can all buy into sexism from time to time, often without even noticing it. Most of us try to keep an eye out for those moments and avoid them or, when we do misstep, apologize and do better next time.

Misogyny is something darker. It’s rage. Disgust. Hatred. It’s what happens when a woman turns down a guy at a bar and he switches from charming to scary. Or when a woman gets a job that a man wanted and instead of shaking her hand and wishing her well, he calls her a bitch and vows to do everything he can to make sure she fails.

Both sexism and misogyny are endemic in America. If you need convincing, just look at the YouTube comments or Twitter replies when a woman dares to voice a political opinion or even just share an anecdote from her own lived experience. People hiding in the shadows step forward just far enough to rip her apart.
