When I was in a taxi in London last week my driver asked me what I thought about the Harvey Weinstein "scandal", as an actress in LA 1/
He stated that he didn't know why women didn't come forward sooner and he was skeptical about the motives for coming forward 2/
I told him that people don't believe women when they report sexual assault and rape and that there's strength in numbers 3/
He said that some "things" are "just part of the job" and argued with me when I said that rape shouldn't be part of anyone's job 4/
I asked him if he would let his male boss grope and rape him if it meant he would get ahead. He scoffed. He said that younger women are 5/
Being hired above/for more money than his wife because she is seen as "taken". I asked if he thought that was right. He agreed that no 6/
it wasn't but said it was, again, "just part of life". He doubled down on women reporting to police for help. I cited Cosby case. 7/
He said he "wasn't sure" that all this "stuff" was actually happening. I told him my own experience about assault and harassment 8/
I explained that I can't even get gas for my car without being harassed and insulted if I don't respond. He replied "I don't know" 9/
I said "I am telling you about actual things that happen(ed) to me and you don't believe me - why don't you believe me?" 10/
He kept skeptically saying "I don't know" & I shouted @ him that if he doesn't believe me now y does he think any1 believes women ever? /11
He wandered all over he place about how assault it common in Romania, how women don't get stabbed in London (?) and he "doesn't know" /12
He assured me he thought rape & assault was wrong but also "it's just part of life" & didn't think anyone could possible do anything /13
He 100% believed that it was IMPOSSIBLE to get men to stop raping and assaulting women and they probably didn't that much anyway /14
Needless to say I was grateful to get the fuck out of the taxi at 5am at my AirBnB unscathed. Believe women. Stop being a fuck face. /END
