Quote:
Peter Travers: We live now in a different age, in a political age. There’s a lot of dissidence that goes on in the world that could affect you as an actor. We’re also in the age of people charged with sexual misconduct. This is everywhere. How do you react to that? Especially you, as the father of four girls.

Matt Damon: I think we’re in this watershed moment. I think it’s great. I think it’s wonderful that women are feeling empowered to tell their stories, and it’s totally necessary … I do believe that there’s a spectrum of behavior, right? And we’re going to have to figure — you know, there’s a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right? Both of those behaviors need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn’t be conflated, right? You know, we see somebody like Al Franken, right? — I personally would have preferred if they had an Ethics Committee investigation, you know what I mean? It’s like at what point — you know, we’re so energized to kind of get retribution, I think.

And we live in this culture of outrage and injury, and, you know, that we’re going to have to correct enough to kind of go, “Wait a minute. None of us came here perfect.” You know what I mean? … The Louis C.K. thing, I don’t know all the details. I don’t do deep dives on this, but I did see his statement, which kind of, which [was] arresting to me. When he came out and said, “I did this. I did these things. These women are all telling the truth.” And I just remember thinking, “Well, that’s the sign of somebody who — well, we can work with that” … Like, when I’m raising my kids, this constant personal responsibility is as important as anything else they learn before they go off in the world.

And the fear for me is that right now, we’re in this moment where at the moment — and I hope it doesn’t stay this way — the clearer signal to men and to younger people is, deny it. Because if you take responsibility for what you did, your life’s going to get ruined …

I mean, look, as I said, all of that behavior needs to be confronted, but there is a continuum. And on this end of the continuum where you have rape and child molestation or whatever, you know, that’s prison. Right? And that’s what needs to happen. OK? And then we can talk about rehabilitation and everything else. That’s criminal behavior, and it needs to be dealt with that way. The other stuff is just kind of shameful and gross, and I just think … I don’t know Louis C.K.. I’ve never met him. I’m a fan of his, but I don’t imagine he’s going to do those things again. You know what I mean? I imagine the price that he’s paid at this point is so beyond anything that he — I just think that we have to kind of start delineating between what these behaviors are.



That's not an unreasonable take on it.

I agree but I'm Canadian.

My wife and I were at a party last night, and I was getting groped by this drunk woman, grabbing my ass and hanging on my arm. She was totally hammered, telling me I was a sexy bitch and that i smelled as good as fuck. Nothing we said or did could get her away from me. Eventually, she tired of me and wandered off.

My wife looked at me and said, "well, I guess you've had your #metoo moment."

Seems strawmanish. He says we need to differentiate between rape and what Franken or CK did, but no one's suggested they be locked up, just shamed.


There's a difference between being shamed and by default losing your job. Can reasonable people disagree whether Franken should lose his seat based on his actions?

For some reason I suspect this one isn't going to get much coverage:

This does not surprise me. The times he's shown up on Doug Benson's podcast were always hard to listen to because he's such a blowhard.

I’ve never forgiven him for his anti-Kimye tweets. I hope he goes down in flames.

Bob Costas looks like he is paying for something he did in his youth.
