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?

The Disaster Artist – Should You See It?


dave

The Disaster Artist is definitely worth seeing. It’s actually worth seeing more than once (which is what I’m going to do because I loved it so much). I haven’t had this much fun in a movie since EVER! James Franco is a spot-on Tommy Wiseau who plays the character Johnny in The Room and James is amazing when he recreates The Disaster Artist scenes from The Room. Because James Franco put in so much dedication to this role, he is a wonderful Tommy and a wonderful director for the movie in general. He even stayed in Tommy’s character when he was directing the movie!

Tommy and James

That being said, I think in order to really enjoy this movie, you’ll have had to see The Room first. Trust me, you will enjoy it!!! I saw it for the first time a year ago and I have probably watched it at least 50 times now. Yes, it is an awful movie! But that is WHY it’s good. Tommy Wiseau is absolutely perfect in the movie because you just can’t turn away. James Franco really captures his essence in The Disaster Artist. And, he is now nominated for Golden Globes due to how amazing the movie is.

The Disaster Artist is mainly about the relationship between the two main actors in The Room: Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero. And because of this, it is so interesting. They are the weirdest pair of best friends you could imagine! Tommy is so much older than Greg (even though he won’t reveal his age or where he was born haha). This is why they’re weird best friends. This shows that any friendship can flourish regardless of pointless differences. If two people click, they click. It’s as simple as that.

Dave Franco plays Greg Sestero in The Disaster Artist. His performance wasn’t amazing in my opinion, though. James Franco picked him to be Greg because he is his brother, and that is apparent. Even so, the storyline makes up for this. The other actors are decent, but the movie focuses on Tommy and Greg’s relationship.

The scenes that James Franco recreates as Tommy Wiseau are absolutely perfect! He put sooo much into this movie. If you are a James fan and/or a Tommy fan, you will like this movie. I guarantee it!
