Pamela Anderson Trashes Weinstein Victims and Ignites Massive Outrage [VIDEO]

I never thought I would write this one day, but I find myself in agreement with Pamela Anderson. Friday, she gave an interview to Megyn Kelly, where she stated that the alleged victims of Harvey Weintein’s sexual assault could have done more to avoid being victimized. Massive backlash and criticism of Pamela ensued. But she’s right. Most of these women knew Weinstein’s reputation. They could have stayed away, but thought it would hurt their careers. And women is Hollywood especially should know, that whenever you meet with any man alone, whether it is for a drink or God forbid, in his hotel room, you are taking a severe risk of being assaulted. Hollywood is not known for nice guys.

None of this excuses a pig like Weinstein. But these women bear some of the responsibility for what happens to them in many cases. Anderson, 50, starred in the cult classic Baywatch. She is a beautiful woman and is being blunt here. She told Kelly that Weinstein’s alleged predations were “common knowledge” in the industry. More than 90 women have now come forward and accused him of sexual harassment or assault. Ten of those women claimed that he raped them. That doesn’t count the women who said yes thinking that sleeping with Weinstein would help their careers.

“It was common knowledge that certain producers or certain people in Hollywood are people to avoid, privately,” Anderson told Kelly. “You know what you’re getting into if you’re going into a hotel room alone. Don’t go into a hotel room alone,” she continued. “If someone answers the door in a bathrobe, leave. These are things that are common sense, but I know Hollywood is very seductive and the people want to be famous. Sometimes you think you are going to be safe with an adult in a room. I don’t know where this security comes from, but somehow I dodged it all.”

Pamela has worked with Weinstein before on a film. She said he was ‘very intimidating’. This set social media on fire and people accused Anderson of blaming the victims. That’s not what she is doing. Women do need to use common sense when potentially putting themselves in compromising positions. The actress and former model did not back down and wrote an Instagram post where she refused to apologize. She is trying to help women not become victims of sexual harassment and assault.

“My position is not ‘problematic’ because I doesn’t fall in line with the common herd or trend. I’m trying to tell women as a survivor of childhood abuse myself – It is important to be proactive as an adult who knows better – in defending themselves,” she wrote. “Don’t get in cars with strangers #rideresponsibly- Don’t go to Hotel rooms alone for an audition. Women are powerful and smart and we can use all our charms in more positive ways,” she added. “I think it’s very smart to be proactive. And I stand by what I say.”

Anderson is just the latest woman to be accused of ‘victim blaming’ for speaking the truth about being responsible when it comes to protecting yourself from sexual predators. Fashion designer Donna Karan and screen legend Angela Lansbury have come under similar fire in recent weeks. Both have pointed out similar things and also bring up the touchy subject on how women dress, which plays into all of this. I’m for modesty in dress, but that is never an excuse for this kind of abuse. However, a woman who dresses like a ‘working girl’ can expect to be approached in that way. It all has to do with being cognizant of how you behave and what circumstances you allow yourself to be put in. You are responsible for your own actions and having situational awareness in order to not become a victim. While I may not agree with all of Anderson’s statement here, I agree with Anderson on protecting yourself by using common sense.

Re- My interview on #todayshow #megynkelly Somebody had to say this. Please don’t worry. Refer people to my blog and long standing commitment to defending the vulnerable. We have the power to be safe and free by using common sense. My message is consistent throughout- I'm a deep thinker / I have a unique perspective. and consequence is part of my life. This is great. I am also an advocate for men. I just don't agree with it all. Backlash is good. – I like this. My position is not 'problematic' because I doesn't fall in line with the common herd or trend. I'm trying to tell women as a survivor of childhood abuse myself – It is important to be proactive as an adult who knows better – in defending themselves. Don't get in cars with strangers #rideresponsibly- Don't go to Hotel rooms alone for an audition. Women are powerful and smart and we can use all our charms in more positive ways. I think it’s very smart to be proactive. And I stand by what I say. My mother taught me – protect yourself. Especially with my ‘image’’ – she and I were worried it could give people wrong Impression. I am not an easy girl and have not had as many partners people might think. I believe in love and commitment and common sense. This is why I'm usually married. It is how I feel safe and protected in a sexual relationship. .A monogamous lover is the best and most brave lover there is. I only want intimate sexual experiences – where I can be free to give my wildest fantasies to someone who loves me. and never have used sex as a weapon. It's just too easy. #bestrong #staysafe #noblame @todayshow #solutions #nodrama
