#MeToo Women, Please Follow The “Matt Damon Harassment Spectrum” When Addressing Claims!

“I think it’s wonderful that women are feeling empowered to tell their stories, and it’s totally necessary … I do believe that there’s a spectrum of behavior, right? And we’re going to have to figure — you know, there’s a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right? Both of those behaviors need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn’t be conflated, right?” [Matt Damon via ABC News]

Not sure how many of you watched Matt Damon’s interview on ABC News’ “Popcorn With Peter Travers” during which he was forced do a reluctant yet deep reflection on society post-Harvey Weinstein. Matt obviously had his talking points down because he made sure to score with all parties involved—from the countless assaulted women who have come forward with painful stories to seemingly awkward, supportive and somewhat apologetic comments toward the group of men who didn’t commit Weinstein-level crimes to finally spotlighting the 99% of actors in the entertainment biz who are downright great people (way to use statistics, Matt!)!

Once you finish watching the clip, you’re left a little confused wondering what exactly Matt Damon feels about the entire ordeal aside from the fact that he seems to be slightly pissed, bitter and wants things to blow over ASAP! If anything, he’s taking what appears to be a self-serving approach and isn’t shameful to imply that he was perfectly alright with the status quo prior to the Harvey Weinstein shit-storm only because it wasn’t really effecting Matt Damon Inc. or anyone directly linked to him. For a man who has four daughters living in Hollywood, I expected far more empathy.

He ended the interview in character from his famous Jason Bourne films. Matt stated that if anyone attempted to drag his name through the muddy waters of social scrutiny, he would fight them in court regardless of costs, saying, “I don’t care if it costs $10 million to fight this in court with you for 10 years, you are not taking my name from me. You are not taking my name and my reputation from me. I’ve worked too hard for it. And I earned it. You can’t just blow me up like that.”

It seems like somebody already has a plan of attack for potential #MeToo missiles directed toward him or maybe he’s secretly talking to one of his prospective accusers thinking of coming forward? Needless to say, his aggressive tone made me scratch my head, just like the rest of the interview.

    Desperate time because I agree with Matt Damon. It’s insulting to even have to say that rape and child molestation isn’t right. However, this new wave of digging up crap from 30 years ago is total BullS*%&. A woman recently claimed to be traumatized because a man asked for her telephone number 20 years ago and it was the lead story on the Fake News media outlets. Give me a break. Also once a woman accepts a payout for accusing a man, she loses all credibility with me. Gloria Allred and her demon spawn Lisa Blum should be in jail. Many a guilty man is going to get away with criminal behavior because men are so pissed off they will have to watch the illegal activity in person before they convict a man on a he said/she said.

      I agree with Matt Damon too though I don’t have the hatred of Gloria Alred that you apparently do. I think Matt explained things pretty much the way I see it. I am glad to see some of these abusive fat cats go down. They have used their money and power to shut mouths for a long time and its time for a reckoning (even hopefully sometime for your fav President!) But this equating of a hug that lasts too long or a quick pat on the butt or a glimpse of porn on someones work computer with rape or true quid pro quo sexual favors/harassment has got to be curtailed before every man in the country faces charges. We all have a sexual urge and we all misjudge situations sometimes and make awkward jokes in mixed company or mistake the intentions of a colleague that we like or that we hope likes us. Women do it too. We are all flawed humans. A lot of this right now seems just like Matt said, a barfight, where women in this case have got caught up in the heat of the moment and just want to punch someone whether that person truly deserves it or not.

        To clarify, my problem with Allred is her and her daughter trolling for women to say something bad about a famous man regardless of whether it is true or not. Many a person would lie for $750,000. I was once in the back of a limo with Hillary for 10-15 seconds in 1996. I’d have to think for a second before turning down $750,000 to say she made a pass at me.

          Dems still push the Lisa Bloom led Trump raped a 13 year old story, even though she was demanding 5 mil, kept giving fake home addresses, and can’t even place a date or place where it occurred. As dumb as that Hillary Pizza child slavery story

          • Sinead McGowan

            But not as dumb as you

    • Sinead McGowan

      It’s only OK when Republiturds do it, right?

  • The Left is devouring itself, pass the popcorn 😀

    • The Mad Zak

      The left has morals. When the actions of a few perverts come to light the majority of them refuse to allow it to continue. When the actions of a conservative pervert comes to light the majority of them continue to back his run for an AL senate seat.

      • Gabbo

        C’mon on, the left just virtue signals. If 2016 has shown anything, it’s the Dems leadership are at least as bad as the Republicans. Between Epstein and Weinstein being tolerated for decades, that’s pretty bad. The whole Lauer, Spacey, Louis CK, Simmons, Halperin, Rose combo just makes it worse. Just this group here fundraiser 200 mil for DNC last year.

        • robert franklin stroud

          The Left is worse because their politics allows those in the MSMedia that share their politics to rationalize the cover-up.

      • Curvefan+

        Morals? That is hilarious. The casting couch goes all the way back to silent movies.

      • That is hilarious, a wonderful example of “whataboutism”. So when does Bill Clintron’s turn come? Far from “refusing to allow it to continue”, the fact these people are sex pests has been an open secret for decades, so where have the Left’s “morals” been all this time? And of course, now that this has blown up, it is already overshooting the mark and turning into a mindless witch hunt. So sorry, there is no moral high ground here.

        • Sinead McGowan

          When a guy on the left does something bad he resigns. When a guy on the right does it (Roy Moore) he attacks the victims

      • robert franklin stroud

        Hardly. The Left was supporting the most openly corrupt person to ever run for the office of President while ignoring that she was the pro-war, pro-banker corrupt Establishment candidate and, if she won, would be bringing a credibly accused rapist and PROVEN sexual harrasser back into the White House.

        The Left has always been filled with hypocrites and the deranged –it is necessarily so for them to keep believing what they believe despite all the evidence to the contrary.

        • Sinead McGowan

          You think Republicans are anti-war? Damn you’re even dumber than I thought.

    • Sinead McGowan

      ur an idiot

  • The Mad Zak

    I agree with Matt Damon. In our legal justice system we have different classes of felonies and misdemeanors. For example, we recognize that the theft of a woman’s purse quietly swiped from her shopping cart while she had her back turned is not the same as the theft of a her purse after having a loaded gun pointed at her forehead. The penalty for the later is going to be much greater than the prior.

    With Al Franken, he rehearses a skit with a female celebrity. The skit calls for a kiss; he wants to include it in the rehearsal and she doesn’t. When the time comes he grabs her, holds her tightly, and french kisses her. That was wrong and he deserves to pay the consequences. However, it’s not nearly as bad as what some others had done. Recently a woman broke her silence in a Fox News sex scandal. She said Fox News exec Francisco Cortes exposed himself then grabbed her head and tried to force her to have oral sex. That is damn near rape. Harvey Weinstein groped women, exposed himself, then tried to ruin careers of actresses who refused his advances. These two men should suffer punishments MUCH greater than Franken.

  • robert franklin stroud

    Women traded sex for roles. This is undeniable.
    Self-described Democrat supporting “male feminists” are disproportionately rapists and abusers. That is equally undeniable.

    When Ashley Judd can say Weinstein did what he did to her YET still have him nearby during the so-called pussy-hat women’s march and not say a thing during her deranged rant you know she is only objecting now because her career disappeared with her sanity and Weinstein’s connection to Hillary’s power is gone.

    • Sinead McGowan

      And child molesters are disproportionately Republitards like you

      • Ben Champ

        You keep using that phrase when you come across as a left wing retard who is only interested in trying to label people like a child would do in a playground. Instead of acting like a child try using actual arguments. You then might actually win an election.

        Then again, who am I kidding looking just down this comment thread its clear you are just a low level troll.
