#Weinstein thing. I've been in some vile situations & everyone makes excuses for the bad guys. Like I've been told "but he's brilliant" 1/
As if talent is an excuse for misogyny. Or "his" talent outranks mine because it is PENIS talent. I've been told "he's on the spectrum" or
"he's going through something." And the thing is it makes YOU feel crazy. You can't trust your feelings or, worse, you KNOW you'll be told
you're wrong or lying or hysterical. And it's already so fucking hard to be taken seriously by YOURSELF as well as others that you move on
It's hard when all your life you're schooled to use your sexual currency, that it is your value -- if you TRY to be attractive then it's not
a man's fault for trying to take something you don't want to give. It's your fault. can't tell you how many women I know feel this confusion
But the fact is -- women navigate a world of fear every day that most men can't comprehend. Except for the ones who do. And use it to hurt
Women in our business try to share the "bad guy" list -- warn others off, etc. But we're getting tired of the game. We're not "snowflakes"
We're not crazy. WE SEE YOU.

On the subject of Matt Weiner and #MadMen

About a week ago Kater Gordon, a young female writer who worked on Mad Men bravely came forward with her account of being sexual harassed by Matt Weiner. While sharing writing duties with him, she recalls that he causally mentioned 1/
something to the effect of "you owe it to me to show me your naked body."

I believe her. I was at work with her the day after what she described transpired. I remember clearly how shaken and subdued Kater was -- and continued to be from that day on. 2/
Responding to her statement, Matt claimed he would never make that kind of comment to a colleague. But anyone with an even cursory knowledge of the show Mad Men could imagine that very line coming from the mouth of Pete Campbell. 3/
