I will start by saying i have never liked him as i found he just seemed a wrong one,cannot say why he just struck me that way.
Seems people are coming out making harassment claims against him,Source CH9 4pm news headlines they have not aired the story just yet.
Something to do with a theatre performance it seems.

Unfortunately no. If he is guilty, throw the book at him, but unfortunately if he is not, the damage will never be undone. However I suspect there is a long list of people in the movie business who have taken advantage of women through the years.

Interestingly back in mid 90's my ex GF mother said it was not uncommon to get a pat on the bum as a Secretary at work up into the 80's and she say nothing wrong with that (cultural acceptance)! However by today's standards this is completely unacceptable and the same person today could make an accusation of what happened back then and it would likely stand up.

Discussion with my kids teachers the other day (also our friends) on why males are leaving teaching, because if a female student doesn't like a male teacher she has the whole Education Department on her side to get rid of him, if he has done nothing wrong and even if proved innocent there is rarely any coming back from a sexual harassment accusation.

people are sensitive these days, though you all ways have to put your self in the 'victims' shoes, guilty until other wise proven. as much as I despise SJWs, Femi-nazis and do 'gooders', I believe it is best to put your self in the victims shoes. Do you guys know what it is like to be a woman these days? I certainly don't and probably never will.

While I think it has been good to expose this terrible culture, the Geoffery rush one does smell in that STC went public on a complaint. They haven't investigated it nor given due process for a person. it smells of publicity.

No doubt some of you knowledgeable in these alleged harassment matters know what SJW and STC mean.

Why is everyone so tired or lazy to say what they mean?

I typed in STC and got Saudi Telecom Company. Then tried again under google.com.au

With regard to bring female. Well according to last way I just urinated I'm not there either, however when wifey waa preggers 12 and 9 years ago I wanted girls because I thought the young female of the 2020's would have the world at her feet far more than boys. These days we have both equal opportunity and feminity without the need of a power suit and most of the old chavanists male bosses would have left the work force by then.

Interestingly working as expat I now see other cultured and the young female professionals of today are walking all over the guys of same age in Arab, Indian and Eastern Europe. The morning peak run on the Metro in Kiev is 5:1 women. Many guys are doing bum jobs if working at all.

It seems a bit unfair policing some of these past events based on todays standards.
As mentioned above, a pat on the bum or a comment that you had great titties was not considered a problem decades back.
I am not saying it was correct then, but it was tolerated and accepted so it is a bit rough to drag it out later on.
As an apprentice mechanic in the early 70's I was regularly "blackballed" with grease and paint.
Today any person doing that would be put on a child offendors list. How times have changed.
