  1. And that even an accusation means the person is guilty of something and should never be listened to again.

  2. And that he claims the accusations are a result of Russian hackers trying to sully his name because he “speaks out” against Trump.

  3. Guess you could also go on a rant about how the privileged Japanese have done this before in Nanjing and argue that Takei owes reparations.

  4. Can I also say that his wife must be a real sweetheart? She has the most genuine smile I've ever seen from any politician's wife, like she just has this air of a kind, sweet lady who bakes cookies and bread with you when you visit (and often because you just want to make it like a second home), and you just want to help with the housework and whistle happy tunes the whole time.

  5. The only people who went up in my book recently from the Hollywood Set were Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, because they've actually put their fucking money where their mouth is on shit they felt was important and founded Thorn. An organisation I had only recently heard of despite it being 9 years old and deep into the technology sphere looking for new solutions to combat child pornography and sexual abuse of children.

    Kutcher himself actually did pretty well in a statement I saw him make which a conservative leaning friend of mine sent me when youtube commenters and the usual set were telling him to "stay in his lane" when he was speaking out on issues related to Thorn and its impact.

    Kutcher also falls into the same political spectrum of Elon Musk, fiscally conservative but socially liberal.

    I can respect that and this is what a lot of hollywood's set are forgetting, they think they're respected and that gives them the right to dump on other people.

    When I get most annoyed with actors is when they just do the shitty phone ins to look good among their friend sets and then fuck off and go do massively hypocritical things. Katy Perry is still vastly down on my shitlist for being an advocate for open borders while living in her own Hollywood walled compound with a private security team.

  6. There are more of these than you know. You just never see them because OMG NAZI EVIL HITLER PHOBOPHOBOPHOBIC IGNORANT TOOTHLESS REDNECK SCIENCE-HATING FLYING SPAGHETTI WORSHIPPERS is used to drown them all out--and they're too busy being real to worry about whether they're getting "representation" in media.

  8. Actually, in-universe, someone leveled pedophilia accusations against Dumbledore (canonically gay) after he died. Not directly accusing, but implying heavily. It was treated not as a serious matter, but blown off because it must, must be only slander by the Evil Bad Guys.

  9. This sounds like Rowling still desperately trying to stay relevant rather than by the real people thing of writing more books since I don't remember that when I read the last book.

  10. I think it was only implied in the insinuating way people do. I remember it, though I can't find a direct quote at the moment, and I disposed of my copy of the book years ago so I don't even have that.

    Anyway, relying on Harry Potter for political guidance is like using a clock to figure out which way is north.

  13. My personal perspective on actor opinions is this. If an actor wants to talk about acting or film making I'll listen. That's their job. It's what they know. It's when they start talking about other things that the problems start. What does Chris Evans know about Immigration? What do Robert Downey Jr. or Mark Ruffalo know about Fiscal policy? What does ScarJo know about Foreign Policy? Their certainly entitled to their opinions and I honestly wouldn't mind having a discussion with any of them but...The vast majority of Hollywood celebrities don't know jack shit about any of the stuff they sperg about and then...Well then their opinion is no more valid or invalid than Mine or Yours. Of course if celebrities just calmly and respectfully gave their opinions instead of bitching and whining and lording over everyone else because of their fame, no would one would really have a problem with them then.

  14. The difference is that, unlike you and me, their opinion is treated by mass media as headline news.

  16. I think the smear job was about his association with Grindlewald rather than being a pedophile.

    As screwy as Rowling is these days, I don't think that she would be as depraved as having implied pedophilia in a children's book series.

  17. She wrote a couple of detective fiction books that were kinda decent. But no, nothing as big as Harry Potter.

  18. While I agree with you in the case of Katy Perry, in general the actions of a proponent are irrelevant to the logic of the argument presented. Stephen Hawking saying that exercise is good for you is still correct, even though he cannot exercise himself.

  20. I think there was some "So he sure hangs out with that Potter kid a lot, eh?" comments in... I forget. Definitely after Goblet of Fire, when everybody was shitting on Dumbledore because they just noticed all the kids that die during your average school year.
