Alec Baldwin 'didn't know' about Weinstein but he 'heard' about Rose McGowan's rape

Alec Baldwin 'didn't know' about Weinstein but he 'heard' about Rose McGowan's rape
In September 2016, Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas-Baldwin welcomed their third child in four years. Every person has the right to make their own reproductive choices, of course, and Hilaria and Alec are both grown-ass adults, but the time frame in which they had their succession of babies did make me side-eye a bit. Well, keep the side-eyes coming, because Hilaria is knocked up again. Her fourth pregnancy in five years, you guys. Last year, I even wrote: 'When Alec and Hilaria announced this third pregnancy, Alec made some noise about how he's really hoping this is the last kid. You know what would be great' If he followed through and got a vasectomy for poor Hilaria's sake, because you know if he doesn't, she'll just get knocked up again in a few months.' He didn't get a vasectomy. She got knocked up again. They also did a 'gender reveal' via cake – they're having a boy. Alec is 59. Hilaria is 33.

Meanwhile, Alec gave some interviews last week about Harvey Weinstein, Rose McGowan and Alec's own history with women. Some assorted quotes:

Alec on his own actions: 'I certainly have treated women in a very sexist way. I've bullied women. I've overlooked women. I've underestimated women. From time to time, I've done what a lot of men do, which is ' when you don't treat women the same way you treat men. You don't. I'm from a generation where you really don't and I'd like that to change. I really would like that to change'.I think it's important for us to try to make the workplace and beyond not only comfortable and right and fair and appropriate but as productive, as well. I think a lot of what we're dealing with within this issue is hurting our business. It's making it less productive.'

On Weinstein: 'I didn't know anything. But I know that when you talked about Harvey Weinstein in the business, for example, for decades, you knew that he was highly intrusive in the process of making films. You know, his nickname was Harvey Scissorhands and he was very intrusive in the path of the directors who worked for him. Number two, you knew that he was a very intense guy and very bullying guy, and was shouting and screaming at people and exhorting them when he didn't get his way. And, last but not least, you heard the rumor that he raped Rose McGowan. You heard that over and over. We have heard that for decades, and nothing was done.'

On Rose McGowan: 'It was for Rose McGowan to prosecute that case. I don't think you and I are working at a job, and we vet everybody we work for in terms of, not just sexual crimes, racism. Do I sit there and say to myself, I want to have a forensic psychiatrist come and examine the entire board of Warner Bros., and I will never take another paycheck from Warner Bros. until everybody on that board of directors that runs that company have been vetted that they're not racist, sexist, homophobic, you name it, I need to have a report on that' Where this thing with Harvey Weinstein and Rose McGowan came along was, I had no idea, until now, that she had settled the case.'

[From EW & Decider]

So Baldwin 'didn't know' anything about Harvey Weinstein and yet he heard 'over and over' that Rose McGowan was raped by Weinstein. It's not that I'm questioning that Baldwin heard about it and did nothing – I believe he heard about it and did nothing – it's that how can he start by saying he didn't KNOW' But really, everything he says here is a huge problem. He's blaming the victim, putting the onus on women and victims to regulate and moderate male predatory behavior. He's blaming victims for accepting settlements too. A lot of people – including Rose and Asia Argento – criticized him online and Baldwin immediately announced that he would be taking a 'leave' from Twitter, and he halfway apologized to offended people, and he literally blamed the victims again for taking settlements and 'delaying justice.' DOUCHE.

Anthony Bourdain is shocked that women didn't tell him they were victimized

Anthony Bourdain is shocked that women didn't tell him they were victimized
Anthony Bourdain is currently dating Asia Argento, one of the first women to come out publicly and talk about what Harvey Weinstein did to her. Bourdain has been a vocal advocate for his girlfriend, and he's been on Twitter, yelling at anyone and everyone who ever made excuses for Harvey Weinstein. I haven't covered that aspect of the story that much, because A) I thought Bourdain was just trying to be a supportive boyfriend and B) I thought he was getting a little bit too 'they're the problem, don't look at me!' about it. Especially given Bourdain's own reputation as a gigantic a–hole. Granted, we're not hearing stories about Bourdain sexually assaulting women. But I guarantee that there are dozens of women in Bourdain's past who felt harassed, demeaned and belittled by Bourdain or by people around Bourdain while he stood there and did and said nothing. Bourdain even admits as much. and all of that has caused some self-examination by Bourdain. He sat down with Slate to talk about it:

Self-examination: 'I mean, look, obviously I've been seeing up close'due to a personal relationship'the difficulty of speaking out about these things, and the kind of vilification and humiliation and risk and pain and terror that come with speaking out about this kind of thing. That certainly brought it home in a personal way that, to my discredit, it might not have before. There's that. And I'm angry and I've seen it up close and I've been hearing firsthand from a lot of women. Also, I guess I'm looking back on my own life. I'm looking back on my own career and before, and for all these years women did not speak to me. I've been out of the restaurant business for 17, 18 years. I'm really not in the mix. Just the same: Other than one woman chef restauranteur friend from Canada, nobody has really been speaking to me about this until recently. I guess because of the Weinstein case I'm starting to hear personal stories from a lot of women.

What he's hearing from women: 'Just personal stories, things that they've heard, things that have happened to them. But I had to ask myself, particularly given some things that I'm hearing, and the people I'm hearing them about: Why was I not the sort of person, or why was I not seen as the sort of person, that these women could feel comfortable confiding in' I see this as a personal failing. I've been hearing a lot of really bad sh-t, frankly, and in many cases it's like, wow, I've known some of these women and I've known women who've had stories like this for years and they've said nothing to me. What is wrong with me' What have I, how have I presented myself in such a way as to not give confidence, or why was I not the sort of person people would see as a natural ally here' So I started looking at that.

Providing cover for meatheads: 'I've had to ask myself, and I have been for some time, 'To what extent in that book [Kitchen Confidential] did I provide validation to meatheads'' If you read the book, there's a lot of bad language. There's a lot of sexualization of food. I don't recall any leeringly or particularly, what's the word, prurient interest in the book, other than the first scene as a young man watching my chef very happily [have a] consensual encounter with a client. But still, that's bro culture, that's meathead culture…Look, I never wanted to be part of bro culture. I was always embarrassed. If I ever found myself, and I mean going way back, with a group of guys and they started leering at women or making, 'Hey, look at her. Nice rack,' I was always, I was so uncomfortable. It just felt, it wasn't an ethical thing; it was that I felt uncomfortable and ashamed to be a man and I felt that everybody involved in this equation was demeaned by the experience. I was demeaned by standing there next to things like this. They were demeaned for behaving like this. It's like sitting at a table with somebody who's rude to a waiter. I don't want to be with someone like that.

[From Slate]

He goes on for a long time about the culture in which he was raised, with sexual liberation and everyone being equal and everyone feeling free to get their freak on, and it reminds me a little bit of Harvey Weinstein's first statement about growing up in the 1960s, with those attitudes. Bourdain is clear that his background doesn't excuse him, and yet he's trying to use it as a mitigating factor. It's a reminder that men in glass houses should be very careful of where they're throwing stones – Bourdain was so pissed off that so many people around Weinstein were culpable to varying degrees, and now he examining his own history of looking the other way or not saying anything when women were being harassed and degraded right in front of him. I guess it's a good thing that some men are coming to Jesus on this kind of stuff, but again' it feels like such a low bar is being set for these men.

Also: so many women are now telling Bourdain their stories and all he can do is think about himself and why he has the kind of personality/background which would make women think they can't trust him or confide him. THAT IS WHY. Because he's making their stories about himself!
