On today’s episode of “Celebrities Say The Darndest Things,” we have Jodie Foster claiming that “pretty much every man over 30” has to start thinking about “their part” in the sexual misconduct cases that have exploded in Hollywood and around America.
While it is important for all victims to speak out, it is disingenuous to say that “every man” has played a role in this. Just because you, Jodie, have worked in an industry where sex is a form of currency and sexual harassment goes unpunished, doesn’t mean that the rest of us do. There are genuinely good men out there who would never use the power of their position to force another person to do their bidding in any capacity. Demonizing all men is a really good way to alienate them from your cause.
Foster stated during a video that a lot of men have engaged in harassing behavior “unconsciously” and it’s time for them to stop living in this bubble that allows them to get away with this.
“We really are at a watershed moment,” she stated. “This part has been painful: these wonderful, amazing narratives that take into consideration everybody’s part in it. I’m really interested and looking forward to the men’s point of view, and what comes next in terms of therapy.”
That’s when she decided to put this on the back of all men.
“It’s every industry. It’s not just one socioeconomic bracket or one complexion,” she added. “Pretty much every man over 30 has to really look and start thinking about their part. And I guarantee, lots of it is unconscious. When you’ve been in a privileged position where you haven’t had to look at your part, you didn’t 100% understand you were in a bubble. It’s an interesting time for men.”
In perhaps the most tone deaf piece of opinion I’ve ever heard, Foster states that if every man went to a “good school” like her sons (and we all know what that means), then they perhaps wouldn’t have uncontrollable urges and grope any woman who happens to be standing in front of them.
“I have two sons (ages 16 and 19), and I know their perspective,” she noted. “They go to a great school that has put them through the wringer about what consent is, what is humanism, what’s integrity. I just wish my generation had the benefit of that, and that everybody had the benefit of that.”
School teaching this? Why not parents? When I grew up, my parents taught me not to touch what doesn’t belong to me without permission. This includes objects and people. My brothers and I have yet to grope anyone. Perhaps instead of relying on other people to teach YOUR child between right and wrong, you should do it yourself?
