Weinstein Victims Missing From 'Totally Woke' Golden Globes Sexual Assault Solidarity
The Golden Globes were filled with lots of palm slapping over woke speeches and new hashtags. Everyone is hyped about Oprah's ambiguous speech. Women wore black in solidarity with assault victims. Or perhaps that's "solidarity." Because guess what was missing from the award show: Harvey Weinstein's victims. Honest mistake.
Despite all the "LOOK AT US IN ALL BLACK BECAUSE WE CARE!" there didn't seem to be any honor paid to the actual victims of Harvey Weinstein. As in no invitations to the "Shiny Sphere" awards were extended to the outspoken victims who got the #MeToo ballsack rolling. I guess they didn't match the decor:
Rose McGowan and Asia Argento accused Harvey Weinstein of rape, which acted as a catalyst for the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements — but they, like Marchesa gowns, were conspicuously absent from the 2018 Golden Globes.

Asia Argento said it clearer than a Windexed focus lens: victims aren't glamorous enough. Just like every other aspect of celebrity life, sexual assault has been edited to fit a perfect narrative. Hollywood is putting up a photoshopped front in little black dresses and kumbaya yoga sessions with talk show hosts (see Top 5 Most Cringey #Oprah 2020 Reactions).
Mark my typing fingers: Hollywood won't change. Putting up a beautifully constructed movement with nice slogans and cool hashtags looks more inspiring than a limbless man dancing. But below the tranquil surface, Hollywood won't be rearranging the furniture. Powerful men will still harass women. Hollywood will remain silent to preserve its image. And limbless dancing men will never be graceful.
For all its blabbing about social change and caring, Hollywood doesn't seem to actually care.
