    Mayim Bialik makes statement for Womens keeps women from being Harasd!

    Writing for the New York Times, which broke the story of the allegations against Weinstein,Bialik said that although she was “shocked and disgusted” by the accusations, she was not surprised.

    “I quickly learned even as a preteen actress that young girls with doe eyes and pouty lips who spoke in a high register were favoured for roles by the powerful men who made those decisions,” Bialik wrote.
    She went on to claim the choices she makes today that she deems to be “self-protecting and wise.”

    “I have decided that my sexual self is best reserved for private situations with those I am most intimate with,” she said. “I dress modestly. I don't act flirtatiously with men as a policy.”

    The piece sparked an immediate backlash from critics on social media who said Bialik was implying that a conservative wardrobe and modest behaviour could protect someone from sexual assault.
    They also pointed out that she appeared to have ignored how the central motive behind sexual assault and harassment is power, not sexual desire.
    Others denounced her for apparently demonizing women based on how closely they met typical standards of beauty in Hollywood, and suggesting they invited harassment because of their looks.

    I think she is calling it like she has seen it!

    but the establishment saying they know otherwise.

    What do you all say is she right?

    This may belong in "culture forum" but I think it will get more attention in "Cafe"!

    We don't see things as they are; we see things as we are!
