I'm partially censoring myself because it would involve spoilering a popular work of art (You can Google it if you want to be potentially spoiled), but this quote from the screenwriter of said art really made me :facepalm: and I needed some place to vent.

Quote:
He didn’t rape ____. He impregnated her with science.

Ben Vereen too?

Broadway star Ben Vereen has been accused of sexual assault by several women during the 2015 production of Hair. In a new article in the Daily News, two women say Vereen forcefully hugged and kissed them, stripped naked during an acting exercise and invited them to his home for “private rehearsals,” during which time things turned sexual.

Vereen apologized for his actions in a statement to the Daily News.

“I would like to apologize directly to the female cast members of the musical Hair for my inappropriate conduct when I directed the production in 2015,” he said. “While it was my intention to create an environment that replicated the themes of that musical during the rehearsal process, I have since come to understand that it is my conduct, not my intentions, which are relevant here. So I am not going to make any excuses because the only thing that matters here is acknowledging and apologizing for the effects of my conduct on the lives of these women.”

He continued: “Going forward, my having come to terms with my past conduct will inform all my future interactions not only with women, but with all individuals. I hope these women will find it in their hearts to accept my sincere apology and forgive me.”

I have no idea if I care to have it spoiled, so I can't Google it. I wish you'd started with the name of the art and then put the remarks in a spoiler code

No no no. That doesn't help. How can I know if it's something I care about getting spoiled without clicking the link? And once I click it, it's spoiled because I have already read the quote. It's a really tough situation GH just put us all in.

Sorry, I never post in A&E so I don't know what the consensus is on spoiler rules. Wanted to be safe rather than sorry. (But Anders is correct.)

But the characters don't really matter for the point I was making. I was just pissed off that this guy doesn't understand that medical rape is still rape.

Ally Sheedy tweeted some weird, cryptic stuff that seemed to implicate Christian Slater and James Franco in...something? I’m confused.

Friedkin's Twitter must have some kind of autopilot on because he retweeted this...
