We’re All Mad Here: Weinstein, Women, and the Language of Lunacy LongReads

“He has demons.” The language of madness is the last resort for a society that can no longer deny the evidence of structural oppression and violence.

By Laurie Penny

„Not a great many women, certainly, given the bone-deep knowledge drilled into us from birth that we were put on this earth to protect men from, among other things, the consequences of their actions. We’ve been raised to believe that men’s emotions are our responsibility. Even the men who hurt us.“

When he returned, he was wearing a bathrobe and holding a bottle of lotion. “He asks me to give a massage. I was, like, ‘Look, man, I am no fucking fool,’ ” Argento said. “But, looking back, I am a fucking fool.”

Argento, who insisted that she wanted to tell her story in all its complexity, said that she didn’t physically fight him off, something that has prompted years of guilt.

“If I were a strong woman, I would have kicked him in the balls and run away.”

She said that she told Weinstein, “I am not a whore,” and that he began laughing. He said he’d put the phrase on a T-shirt.

Hollywood? It’s finished, claims Oscar-winning director who fled to New York The Guardian

Paul Haggis, who depicted LA’s racist underbelly in Crash, says Harvey Weinstein scandal is another sign of the film capital’s need for radical change

By Vanessa Thorpe

“People have been hoping for a new trend of more serious American film-making for a while,” Haggis said. “I remember when I was Oscar-nominated for Crash in 2006, the other contenders were all serious films, Capote, Brokeback Mountain, Good Night, and Good Luck and Munich, so I thought Hollywood had turned a corner. But people told me, rightly, that it was just an anomaly.”

A list of the accusations made against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, who has denied many of the allegations

„We were talking on the sofa when he suddenly jumped on me and tried to kiss me. I had to defend myself. He’s big and fat, so I had to be forceful to resist him. I left his room, thoroughly disgusted.“
