The Real Reason Behind the #metoo Movement


As a woman, I would like to put in my two cents on how I feel about the #metoo movement.  My view is probably the opposite of the majority of women.  When I first started noticing the #metoo movement on Facebook, I was already annoyed. Almost every girl that I’m friends with on Facebook put their status as #metoo. So I looked in to what the hell this meant. It is supposed to mean that they have been assaulted by a man or men. Alright…well isn’t that supposed to be a private matter? Why are they exploiting their sexual past?

Me too

At the start of the #metoo movement, it had a clear purpose and the women probably weren’t lying.  Then, it started to become a trend that every girl wanted to say they were a part of but were clearly lying.

Not to be judgmental, but another thing I noticed about the girls that were posting #metoo as their statuses were not very attractive. I acknowledge that everyone’s view on what is and what is not attractive is different so take what I said with a grain of salt. But because of this, I was already starting to see what the #metoo movement was really about. Again, as a female, I know how we operate, and I can tell you this: it seemed to me like these women were trying to act like men were desperately trying to get in their pants and these women “didn’t want that to happen”. The women definitely wanted it to happen. And now that it happened, they feel regretful. They probably feel regretful because the man that they had sex with rejected them and didn’t end up having a long term relationship with them.

That was my initial notion. It annoyed me and I complained about how much it annoyed me to my boyfriend and my mom, but I was just like “Whatever. Just like any other fad, this will gradually stop.” In all actuality, it got worse. It got worse to the point that it seemed like a lot of men were getting in trouble for something they didn’t do.

There were a lot of famous men being accused. So I started to become even more angry about the movement. But again, whatever…what can I do about it? The straw that broke the camel’s back for me was when James Franco got accused of assault. FIVE women came out at once and claimed that James Franco sexually assaulted them. ALL AT ONCE. Okay…seriously? If this was really the case, then why didn’t they report this RIGHT after it happened?  Now he can’t even get a well-deserved Oscar because of them.  Not that I know the insider info on this, but come on…why all at once girls?  Sexual assault is supposed to be reported soon after…not 3 years later.

James Franco me too

A lot of female celebrities started doing this to other famous men before James. Now it is just continuing. In my opinion, this needs to stop. If a woman gets sexually assaulted, it should be required for her to report it RIGHT AFTER it happened and not decide years later just to ruin a man’s career and/or life. Also, WHERE’S THE EVIDENCE?

From my point of view, the #metoo movement turned out to be about unattractive women trying to show that men are “so into them that they take advantage of them”. And it also turned out to be an elaborate scheme to ruin famous mens’ careers just because of regrets and rejection. Can we just chill out girls?

Where is Gordo from “Lizzie McGuire” now?


 

If you used to watch the show Lizzie McGuire when you were younger, you would remember the character named Gordo played by Adam Lamberg. Every young girl had a crush on him and everyone wanted Lizzie and Gordo to end up together in the end. Predictably, that is exactly what happened in “The Lizzie McGuire Movie”. After that movie, Gordo seemed to disappear off the face of the earth. Thanks to Adam Lamberg’s Facebook, we can see how Gordo has progressed since “Lizzie McGuire”.

Go Away

We can see he loves chickens…

..and alcohol…

…and weed.

Gordo high

There were actually 2 very small and low key movies that Gordo was in after the end of the “Lizzie McGuire” show. One movie is called “When Do We Eat?” where he played a Jewish autistic man. The other movie is called “Beautiful Loser” where he falls desperately in love with a beautiful girl from high school. In all honesty, those movies were pretty bad. Could that be the reason Gordo ditched the acting business? It may be…but what is he doing now?

Gordo Now

Adam Lamberg aka. Gordo now works at the Irish Arts Center in New York City. So he’s a Jewish Irishman. He looks pretty zombie-esque and like he hasn’t slept in a week in this picture. Someone call the makeup artist!

Which Actor Played the Best Spider-Man?


One thing is for sure: every Spider-Man movie is guaranteed to be filled with action and excitement.

Even so, the acting of the masked hero varies. We now have 3 different actors that have donned the Spidey suit on the big screen. They have all put in great effort, but who is the best? Let’s weigh the options.


Tom Holland is a new and fresh face for Peter Parker and Spider-Man. He really connects with the younger audience members. He has the funny factor of Spider-Man, but does he pull off the nerd aspect of Peter Parker? He seems like too much of a cool kid. Let’s be honest…if he were in our high school classes, he would be the most popular guy in school. He also seems like a flat-out crony of Iron Man. He’ll sometimes be dealing with situations on his own, but he’ll usually have Iron Man breathing down his neck.

 

Andrew Garfield was very humorous, but he’s also too cool. And what’s with the skateboard? Peter Parker did NOT have a skateboard in the comics! Andrew Garfield was so inaccurate that it wasn’t even funny. The Amazing Spider-Man was tolerable, but The Amazing Spider-Man 2 completely killed that franchise. No one really wanted to know what happened to Peter and Spidey after that trainwreck.

The storylines of both The Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Homecoming lack the emotional depth of the original Spider-Man movies, also. They’re entertaining, but how well can we see through Peter Parker’s eyes?  They also come off as conceited Peter Parkers. Their mannerisms don’t coincide with the self-conscious way that Peter Parker is supposed to be.

Tobey Maguire is the perfect nerdy Peter Parker. He is shy and awkward just like Peter was in the comic books. He is only comfortable with himself when he has his mask on. His movies before also had a Peter Parker feel…they were like preparation for his biggest role of all: Spider-Man. His acting seems so real and authentic, too. He really brings us into the life of Peter Parker and his struggles. We feel as if we are literally seeing through Peter’s eyes. And he made Spider-Man known worldwide.

Tobey Maguire may have lacked some comedic lines when he was donning the suit, but that was due to the writing of the movie and the fact that the scenes weren’t supposed to be funny at all. When he did have comedic lines, he pulled them off very well. Peter Parker is supposed to be someone who is quiet but occasionally wisecracking. Tobey pulled that off to a t and we need him back. We need the story line to continue or else he will always be “Spider-Man No More”.
