#BrettRatner admits lying about having sex with Olivia Munn "She’s actually talented. The problem is I made her look like she’s a whore." 1/
No, Brett. The problem is you. And all other guys like you in our business who think ALL women are whores because you couldn't get any 2/
When you were a teenager & internalized that humiliation as rage at women. What is is?"Women worst fear re: men is getting killed... 3/
Men's worst fear about women is getting laughed at." Also, there's nothing WRONG with being a whore if that's what you WANT to be. Unlike 4/
people like you who do shitty, substandard work and think you're god's gift for doing it. I heard a story about you on set that ... 5/
you could barely be bothered to do the work, you were so busy talking on the phone to your girlfriends and looking at headshots of women. 6/
I don't know if it's true. I wasn't there. But boy it sounds like the truth, that your very talented DP does most of the heavy lifting... 7/
You want to know why marginalized people r so FUCKING ANGRY? Because we work ten times as hard for less recognition, less pay and have to 8/
smile at the Ratners of the world who cover 4 each other and just keep failing up. It's on us to do better, when we have our time. Which 9/
I 4 one, can't wait for. Talented people with big hearts who treat each other with respect should get their turn. So FUCK yeah #galgadot 10/
should not hand you an award this weekend. Bet there's room in that rehab next to #weinstein's empty chair.
One more thing, too. The fact that a well off white woman like me can relate and have a SMALL sliver of the experience of being marginalized
just tells you how fucking bad it is for people who CAN'T pass as white or straight or "mainstream" or whatever the fuck we're told is best
I think I'm done. All the non-Ratners of the world? THANK YOU for being you and keep trudging. And say nice things to you ABOUT 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/
