Henry Cavill Apologizes for Statements About #MeToo Movement

Henry Cavill has issued an apology for his statements about the #MeToo movement in a recent interview, where he stated he is hesitant to go up to a woman and talk to her “because I’m going to be called a rapist of something.” In his apology statement, Henry said to Huffington Post, “Having seen the [...] Henry Cavill has issued an apology for his statements about the #MeToo movement in a recent interview, where he stated he is hesitant to go up to a woman and talk to her “because I’m going to be called a rapist of something.” In his apology statement, Henry said to Huffington Post, “Having seen the reaction to an article in particular about my feelings on dating and the #metoo movement, I just wanted to apologize for any confusion and misunderstanding that this may have created. Insensitivity was absolutely not my intention. In light of this I would just like to clarify and confirm to all that I have always and will continue to hold women in the highest of regard, no matter the type of relationship whether it be friendship, professional, or a significant other.” “Never would I intend to disrespect in any way, shape or form,” Henry added. “This experience has taught me a valuable lesson as to the context and the nuance of editorial liberties. I look forward to clarifying my position in the future towards a subject that it so vitally important and in which I wholeheartedly support.” Click inside to see Henry Cavill’s interview quotes that caused the controversy… In an interview published earlier this week, Henry was questioned heavily about the #MeToo movement. “I’ve been fortunate enough to not be around the kind of people who behave that way…To my memory there’s been no moments where I look back and think, ‘Ooh, OK, maybe someone shouldn’t have gone through that.’ I know there have been situations with people I’ve worked with being perhaps overfamiliar with some of the actresses. But, I’ve always walked up to them and said, ‘Hey, are you all right? That’s creepy’” he told GQ Australia. The interviewer continued to ask him questions about the #MeToo movement, and Henry made some statements that have sparked some strong reactions. “There’s a traditional approach to [flirting], which is nice. I think a woman should be wooed and chased, but maybe I’m old-fashioned for thinking that,” he added. “It’s very difficult to do that if there are certain rules in place. Because then it’s like: ‘Well, I don’t want to go up and talk to her, because I’m going to be called a rapist or something.’” “So you’re like, ‘Forget it, I’m going to call an ex-girlfriend instead, and then just go back to a relationship, which never really worked.’ But it’s way safer than casting myself into the fires of hell, because I’m someone in the public eye, and if I go and flirt with someone, then who knows what’s going to happen? Now? Now you really can’t pursue someone further than, ‘No.’ It’s like, ‘OK, cool.’ But then there’s the, ‘Oh, why’d you give up?’ And it’s like, ‘Well, because I didn’t want to go to jail?’” Henry added. One Twitter user, Helen Price, responded in a now viral tweet, “This is absurd. If Henry Cavill doesn’t want to be called a rapist then all he has to do is… not rape anyone. The mental gymnastics some men are doing to position themselves as “victims” of #MeToo is insane.”.....»»

Henry Cavill Pulling #MeToo Reverse Psychology

  The old adage that I made up “you can’t be raped by a hot person” is alive and well with Superman star Henry Cavill. He faced massive backlash after telling GQ Australia that thanks to #MeToo, he is overly cautious when flirting with women, for fear of making them feel uncomfortable. Uncomfortable in 2018 meaning […] The post Henry Cavill Pulling #MeToo Reverse Psychology appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?.   The old adage that I made up “you can’t be raped by a hot person” is alive and well with Superman star Henry Cavill. He faced massive backlash after telling GQ Australia that thanks to #MeToo, he is overly cautious when flirting with women, for fear of making them feel uncomfortable. Uncomfortable in 2018 meaning raped to death: There’s a traditional approach to [flirting], which is nice. I think a woman should be wooed and chased, but maybe I’m old-fashioned for thinking that. It’s very difficult to do that if there are certain rules in place. Because then it’s like: ‘Well, I don’t want to go up and talk to her, because I’m going to be called a rapist or something.’ So you’re like, ‘Forget it, I’m going to call an ex-girlfriend instead, and then just go back to a relationship, which never really worked.’ But it’s way safer than casting myself into the fires of hell, because I’m someone in the public eye, and if I go and flirt with someone, then who knows what’s going to happen?

Now you really can’t pursue someone further than, ‘No.’ It’s like, ‘OK, cool.’ But then there’s the, ‘Oh, why’d you give up?’ And it’s like, ‘Well, because I didn’t want to go to jail?’ The mere thought of not having Cavill’s Super paws all over their lady bits sent liberal Twitter into a tizzy. Not be raped by hunk Henry Cavill? Now that’s an infringement on civil liberties. Cavill was, in a dumb hunk way, calling into question the extreme to which some people have co-opted the well-intended hashtag, originally meant to destigmatize sexual assault and give survivors a platform to connect and heal. Not to shame men for having reproductive organs. Now #MeToo means Scarlet Johansson transitioning into a man. It’s like a game of telephone, where the last person hears the words “butch dump truck.” Now Cavill is apologizing for stating that he is more cautious around women than he previously was before 2017. I thought this was the ultimate surrendering Rose McGowan was hoping for, but instead, it warranted a promise on Cavill’s part that he will hit on women and, if they’re lucky, sexually assault them for years to come. Right ladies. More powerful than a locomotive indeed: Having seen the reaction to an article in particular about my feelings on dating and the #metoo movement, I just wanted to apologize for any confusion and misunderstanding that this may have created. Insensitivity was absolutely not my intention. In light of this I would just like to clarify and confirm to all that I have always and will continue to hold women in the highest of regard, no matter the type of relationship whether it be friendship, professional, or a significant other. Never would I intend to disrespect in any way, shape or form. This experience has taught me a valuable lesson as to the context and the nuance of editorial liberties. I look forward to clarifying my position in the future towards a subject that it so vitally important and in which I wholeheartedly support. Editorial liberties. Hm. Never heard of ’em.

In a video that emerged and went viral, he was seen questioning the movement. “If you use the #MeToo movement to try to get significance and certainty by attacking and destroying someone else… all you’ve done is basically use a drug called significance to make yourself feel good,” Tony said in the video. Now, Tony has released a statement about his viral comments amid major backlash. “At a recent Unleash the Power Within (UPW) event in San Jose, my comments failed to reflect the respect I have for everything Tarana Burke and the #MeToo movement has achieved. I apologize for suggesting anything other than my profound admiration for the #MeToo movement. Let me clearly say, I agree with the goals of the #MeToo movement and its founding message of “empowerment through empathy,” which makes it a beautiful force for good,” Tony wrote on Facebook. “For 40 years I’ve encouraged people to grow into the men and women they dream to be. I watch in awe as more and more women all over the world find their voice and stand up and speak out. All of our growth begins with learning. My own started with a childhood marked by abuse. I am humbled that others have looked to the path I have taken in the decades since as lessons in their own journey. But sometimes, the teacher has to become the student and it is clear that I still have much to learn.”.....»»

On Wednesday, it was confirmed that the anti-harassment #MeToo movement has been named Time magazine's Person of the Year. This decision comes amid the MANY sexual misconduct scandals that have plagued both the entertainment industry and politics. Related: Beyoncé Makes A Surprise Appearance To Honor Colin Kaepernick In case you missed it, following the explosive exposés about sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, Alyssa Milano rallied thousands to open up about their experiences with harassment and/or assault in order to prove that the filmmaker's abuse wasn't an uncommon thing in society. Using the hashtag #MeToo, numerous people came forward to out heavyweights near and far for their sexual misconduct -- including Kevin Spacey, James Toback, Brett Ratner, etc. Ironically, the announcement was made on NBC's Today, where longtime host Matt Lauer was recently ousted for his "inappropriate sexual behavior" with a colleague.

Celebs Of The #MeToo Movement Defend Asia Argento Against Disgusting Claims She Caused Anthony Bourdain"s Suicide

We are all sad and confused about the loss of Anthony Bourdain. But some fans are taking it out on the wrong person. Someone who is already in a great deal of pain. Asia Argento was the focus of a great deal of ire among the dregs of toxic masculinity even before her boyfriend's death, for her [...] We are all sad and confused about the loss of Anthony Bourdain. But some fans are taking it out on the wrong person. Someone who is already in a great deal of pain. Asia Argento was the focus of a great deal of ire among the dregs of toxic masculinity even before her boyfriend's death, for her outspoken role as part of the #MeToo movement, and getting Bourdain involved in it as well. Related: Bourdain's 11-Year-Old Daughter Will Inherit Most Of His Estate Now she's being blamed by those "internet trolls" for his suicide as well, and the movement has her back. An open letter obtained by The Wrap and signed by Terry Crews, Olivia Munn, Rose McGowan, and 42 more famous faces of #MeToo, demands Asia be left to grieve in peace: "Asia has now found herself on the receiving end of vicious cyberbullying and repulsive slander at the hands of internet trolls who hold her responsible for Anthony's death. She has been accused of everything from causing her boyfriend's suicide to trying to use her 'survivor status' and the #MeToo movement to advance her career." Speaking directly to those supposed fans, the stars write: "We are here to ask those who are angry and grieving the loss of Anthony to find a healthy outlet for their pain. Asia is a survivor, just as we are, and her fame and outward show of strength does not make her any less vulnerable. Asia is not a headline — she is a human being, and she is in horrific pain. There has long been a traditional narrative of blaming, vilifying and martyring courageous women. We reject that narrative." Read the entire lengthy letter (below): On June 8, we lost a rare, great man. Anthony Bourdain was a lightning rod of cultural connectivity. He brought disparate, marginalized people together and made the unknown accessible — some of the many gifts that made Anthony such a valuable presence in our collective lives, whether we knew him or not. An unwavering supporter of women and the #MeToo movement, Bourdain's loss was a tragedy on so many levels, to so many people who saw him as a beacon of a new way of being. We share that grief and deepest sadness for his family and those closest to him whose pain must be unimaginable. One of the most vocal and unwavering figures in the #MeToo movement has been Asia Argento. At the center of our community, Asia has stood, her fist in the air, fighting daily not just for justice for those of us she has come to know, but for abused people the world over. Asia has now found herself on the receiving end of vicious cyberbullying and repulsive slander at the hands of internet trolls who hold her responsible for Anthony's death. She has been accused of everything from causing her boyfriend's suicide to trying to use her "survivor status" and the #MeToo movement to advance her career. There has long been a traditional narrative of blaming, vilifying and martyring courageous women. We reject that narrative. If there is one thing we know with unwavering confidence, "sexual violence victim" is not a title anyone wants attached to themselves. Being known as a sexual assault victim isn't a badge of honor or career booster; it's a highly difficult, sometimes traumatizing and humiliating experience. All of us who have taken the risk of coming forward — and it is truly a risk to us, our reputations, relationships and mental health — have faced harsh criticism and often outright anger and hatred online, in our respective communities and, for some, within our own families. Yet we come forward in the hope that we can change things for others and end the sexual violence and abuse that has flourished with impunity for millennia. We are here to ask those who are angry and grieving the loss of Anthony to find a healthy outlet for their pain. Asia is a survivor, just as we are, and her fame and outward show of strength does not make her any less vulnerable. Asia is not a headline — she is a human being, and she is in horrific pain. We are proud to stand together as silence-breakers. We are so grateful for the foresight and compassion of #MeToo founder Tarana Burke and every member of the community of survivors whose pain deserves equal attention. We are indebted to and linked with every person who has come forward to report their own experiences with sexual harassment, abuse and rape. We are proud of the courage of each and every person who has decided to speak their truth, just as we support those who do not wish to speak. We are proud of the work that is being done, but we are not finished; we have only just begun. We understand sexual harassment and assault are global epidemics.

PBS Wants A Piece Of MeToo Action

Objectifying women is only wrong when men do it. Throwing advertisements on the side of the MeToo victim train is completely fine if you’re a corporation cutting a check and not an individual member of the evil penis wielding patriarchy.

Objectifying women is only wrong when men do it. Throwing advertisements on the side of the MeToo victim train is completely fine if you’re a corporation cutting a check and not an individual member of the evil penis wielding patriarchy. MeToo has everyone’s attention at the moment and where there are focused eyes there is money to be made. PBS’s version of MeToo is more focused on monetary gains than actually empowering women who blew the whistle after they realized they were down on the scoreboard. Late calls in the cash grab game are allowed now because women are changing the rules. The show PBS wants the world to see is a five-part series that VICE could cover on YouTube in 45 minutes tops. But VICE has a habit of employing straight white males. If a journalist like Thomas Morton covered MeToo it would be considered a conflict of interest to every woman watching. PBS announced on Tuesday that it will air a five-part series about the #MeToo moment. The series, #MeToo, Now What?, is scheduled to debut on February 2. Between E!’s MeToo show and now PBS joining the party I wonder when the MeToo merch will get green-lit for screen printing. Women wearing the shirts will make it easier overall to identify who’s not DTF with NSA. There’s no way any chick with a MeToo halter top on is letting you get near her milk makers without a six month wait-time just to consensually see some slight under-boob. And that’s if you’re lucky. On the bright side, it saves men time and money. Dodging a date night with a feminazi is always a win. Until then grab the popcorn and prepare for more televised attacks.

Time Magazine Names The Silence Breakers Their Person Of The Year!

We are SO about this decision. On Wednesday, it was confirmed that The Silence Breakers (many involved with the anti-harassment #MeToo movement) have been named Time magazine's Person of the Year.

On Wednesday, it was confirmed that The Silence Breakers (many involved with the anti-harassment #MeToo movement) have been named Time magazine's Person of the Year. This decision comes amid the MANY sexual misconduct scandals that have plagued both the entertainment industry and politics. Related: Beyoncé Makes A Surprise Appearance To Honor Colin Kaepernick In case you missed it, following the explosive exposés about sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, Alyssa Milano rallied thousands to open up about their experiences with harassment and/or assault in order to prove that the filmmaker's abuse wasn't an uncommon thing in society. Using the hashtag #MeToo, numerous people came forward to out heavyweights near and far for their sexual misconduct -- including Kevin Spacey, James Toback, Brett Ratner, etc. Ironically, the announcement was made on NBC's Today, where longtime host Matt Lauer was recently ousted for his "inappropriate sexual behavior" with a colleague. Be sure to watch the announcement (below)! WATCH: "The image you see partially on the cover is of a woman we talked to… who doesn’t feel that she can come forward without threatening her livelihood." @TIME EIC @efelsenthal talks #TIMEPOY cover pic.twitter.com/q3bPbKNPbg — TODAY (@TODAYshow) December 6, 2017 The #MeToo movement's founder Tarana Burke joined Milano on Today in order to talk about the grassroots movement. See highlights from their appearance (below). WATCH: "I could never imagine this. I could never have envisioned something that would change the world. I was trying to change my community." -#MeToo creator Tarana Burke #TIMEPOY pic.twitter.com/eA3Fu4ZEII — TODAY (@TODAYshow) December 6, 2017 WATCH: "I thought if women could just come forward and say #MeToo…then we could really start to shape this and get an idea of the magnitude of this issue." -@Alyssa_Milano #TIMEPOY pic.twitter.com/WhAFPEKr9b — TODAY (@TODAYshow) December 6, 2017 WATCH: "This is just the start… it’s not just a moment, it’s a movement." #MeToo creator Tarana Burke #TIMEPOY pic.twitter.com/LEvcIcm9pO — TODAY (@TODAYshow) December 6, 2017 Recognizing "The Silence Breakers": #MeToo creator Tarana Burke, @rosemcgowan and more in their own words #TIMEPOY pic.twitter.com/GbatmXTh64 — TODAY (@TODAYshow) December 6, 2017 These ladies are SUCH an inspiration. While the #MeToo movement certainly caused a firestorm throughout the country, actual public figures were considered for the prestigious title. Finalists included Donald Trump, Chinese President Xi Jinping, and quarterback Colin Kaepernick. What are YOUR thoughts on the Person of the Year selection? Do you agree with the choice? SOUND OFF in the comments (below)! [Image via NBC/Twitter.].....»»
