Somebody had to say this. Please don’t worry. Refer people to my blog and long standing commitment to defending the vulnerable. We have tho power to be safe and free by using common sense. My message is consistent throughout.
Daily beast is anti Wikileaks - and they probably want to discredit me before part 2 (the WL part)
Megyn Kelly is great - I'm happy with interview.
'Hi Pam – So the Megyn Kelly interview aired this morning and some of the media are saying you were victim blaming when you spoke about Harvey Weinstein and women going alone to hotel rooms to meet with producers, etc. I diffused a lot of it by stating “as a victim yourself you would never blame other women and that you are a huge advocate for women, etc.” See below article from the Daily Beast, let me know if you want to say anything so we stay ahead of this. " (from my publicist/Ann)
I don't need any defense - but thank you Ann.
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 -
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 an childhood abuse survivor myself - 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 - 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 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.
To say I am victim blaming completely misconstrues my point. Victims are not to blame, they never are. I, myself, am a victim of sexual abuse, and I know that predators are always to blame - solely and entirely. That doesn’t mean we can’t take common sense measures to keep ourselves safe and avoid harmful situations. Victim trauma has long paved the way; there are always key learnings from which we can all benefit. It’s the same reason I support Ride Responsibly and say “don’t get into a ride-hail car with a total stranger.” Until drivers for the apps undergo stricter background checks, I say “think before you app.”
Hopefully now we are all armed and empowered and can take steps to protect our own safety and well being.
All blame lies completely with the predators themselves. I am just saying the more you know, the safer you are. This is a very powerful moment in time, and everyone has a lot to learn from all this. In light of all these revelations, if a business associate invites you to his hotel room – or if you are sent there by a liaison of his – and he answers the door in his bathrobe, you should walk away. We can now learn from these unforgivable crimes and take steps to protect ourselves.
