    Robin Thicke (Blurred lines singer) gets metoo'd.

    https://www.theage.com.au/culture/ce...04-p58wy9.html

    The model who performed nude in the uncensored clip accuses Robin Thicke of groping her breasts while on set. I actually hated this song as it was played everywhere at the time and is crap.

    Some interesting quotes from the article.

    The video and the song received a good deal of criticism at the time, slammed by many for its sexist and misogynistic message, with some people suggesting that it promoted rape culture.


    (Director) Martel intended to subvert the song message, by portraying nearly naked women who were mocking the men. But according to Ratajkowski, Thicke ended up undermining the director’s intentions.
    So female's being portrayed as inferior = bad. Men inferior = good?

    Yes, I bet those guys felt really punished by having naked models parade around them.

    “With that one gesture, Robin Thicke had reminded everyone on set that we women weren’t actually in charge. I didn’t have any real power as the naked girl dancing around in his music video. I was nothing more than the hired mannequin,” she wrote.
    And whose fault is that? Did she read the lyrics to the song? Did she care what she signed up for?
    Thicke himself probably didn't have any power either. He was also just doing his job.

    “With that one gesture, Robin Thicke had reminded everyone on set that we women weren’t actually in charge. I didn’t have any real power as the naked girl dancing around in his music video. I was nothing more than the hired mannequin,” she wrote.

    Thicke himself was most likely not in charge either.

    The director said that she recalls the episode, as well as her angry reaction.
    “I remember the moment that he grabbed her breasts. One in each hand. He was standing behind her as they were both in profile,” Martel said.
    “I screamed in my very aggressive Brooklyn voice, ‘What the f--k are you doing, that’s it!! The shoot is over!!’”


    Thicke “sheepishly apologised” after the incident.
    “As if he knew it was wrong without understanding how it might have felt for Emily,” Martel added.
    And that was it? Why not take it further at the time?

    Looking forward to all the people who sucked up to Thicke at the time now recant and apologize for supporting him. Pharrell Williams who wrote the lyrics is already apologizing for sexism.

    Emily Ratajkowski claims Robin Thicke assaulted her on the Blurred Lines set

    What's wrong with this picture. In 2013, women gets job shaking her naked body on camera for a sexy song. Singer sexually assaults her. She's so outraged that she reports it 8 YEARS LATER. Meanwhile that video totally helped her career. So on social media, anyone who asks "Why did she wait 8 years to report this?" gets all kinds of feminist retorts like, "You're a misogynist blaming the victim."

    Just for asking a natural question. I remember when someone vandalized and stole part of my car, I reported it immediately. When I was a kid and someone stole our motorcycle, my parents reported it IMMEDIATELY. But in this case, it was:

    Man sexually assaults woman. She's so outraged that she reports it 8 years later.

    Why 8 years later? ...... OMG, you misogynist, you're so evil, you objectify women

    https://www.huffpost.com/entry/emily-ratajkowski-robin-thicke-sexual-assault_n_615b0a7de4b0487c85619e00?d_id=2682404&re f=bffbhuffpost&ncid_tag=fcbklnkushpmg00000063&utm_ medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook&utm_campaign=us_ main&fbclid=IwAR1Vh5wC-uP6kbD8AFL8qbWnS1PiPffyfJpegRLH8vF4Di2NgUNmBToU2lA


    Let's all remember what "objectify" means. It means that a woman shows herself to be sexy, and then the women who aren't sexy get pissed off because they don't get the attention. That's what it really means. In reality, it's normal for men to be attracted to young, curvy, and sexy women and not blimp-shaped old ones. That pisses the blimp-shaped old ones off. Instead of saying, "Oh, well, they have a bug up their ass," society takes their complaints seriously as part of the "feminist" movement.

    Emily Ratajkowski is 30 now. Gee, I wonder if that has anything to do with it.

    Here's the video with the catchy song and all the sexy stuff:

    Started a thread earlier, some interesting comments in the article.

    She probably didn't think much about it and was happy to be in that video and have it catapult her career. But now it is salacious and she has a book to put it in as a juicy bit to make more off of.

    But even worse is, what we have here is another case where once accused he will be considered guilty before any due process is had. That is the real story - once again a mere accusation of sexual assault can ruin an man.

    She turned 30, she has become a mother now, her looks are fading and with it, the attention that she used to get. What better way for her to regain some of the spotlight and attention than to dig up something spicy supposedly done almost a decade ago which she didn't think was noteworthy to bring up then.

    This is done so often, by many, many women that it is almost a trope by now.

    So what if the white knight mob will now destroy Robin Thicke in the court of public opinion? To her, that's probably secondary to the fact that she'll now have one last time in the light as the fading rays of attention that she used to enjoy fade into the sunset.

    It's like the medieval witch hunts. Guilty in public opinion and burned at the stake to satisfy the masses.

    Poignant, given the lyrics of the song, which is about how women like to make sexual advances and maintain denaibility. It's women who like the blurred lines - that way, they can play both sides. Does anyone doubt for a moment that when Thicke was behind her and touched her breasts, Ratajkowski was rubbing her moneymaker on his crotch?
