    You're right. As in life, it's never black and white, only Shades of Grey. However, they have made a start, even if some of them did it with the worst intentions or with their fingers crossed. Others did not. Some even stayed away. You're never going to get a uniform reaction or a uniform baseline.

    Flame away. I'm used to it.
    I missed it. Was JLaw there in black? I'm sure she's not the only one. What would we have them do? Own up to it and wear red letters?

    Sigh. I merely asked how many of these women have benefitted from the odious casting couch system at some point. I certainly wouldn't blame them if that's how they got their first break in showbiz.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    I'm sure a shitload. Maybe that's why they're dressed in black?

    Doubtful if anyone who took advantage of the casting couch would honestly admit (even to themselves) that they might not have went anywhere without the casting couch because they lacked the talent.

    For every mediocre talent who may have fucked their way to stardom, how many true talents were we denied because they wouldn't? And even the mediocre talents who might have gotten a role they didn't deserve shouldn't have had to (or been able to) fuck for it.

    I tried to listen to her speech but switched off after 2mins. And, now I keep hearing Oprah should run for the presidency ugh...

    Me too. The subject matter is of course very important. But listening to her, it seemed so fake. It was like she was doing a scene.

    Yes, that's why I struggled to follow her speech.

    I would, if she was running against Trump. This is coming from someone who does not have any love for Oprah and her stupid magazine with her stupid face on the cover every damn month.

    sure, guess i shouldn't say NEVER. Trump did endorse O for Prez in the 90's! ha. Oprah v. Ivanka would be a riot, too!

    Aren't there any, you know, actual politicians who could run? Actors, reality stars, celebrities don't have a brilliant track record so far.

    Yeah I don't want funny. I want someone with actual political experience.

    Yes, it would be good if an actual politician runs for presidency not a rich celebrity
