Spacey has now spoken about it and has basically said he doesn’t remember it at all and that he is sorry it happened. He also took the time to admit he was gay (shock horror, never saw that coming).
I actually find it interesting and it is something that is rarely talked about. One person acts in an inappropriate way and then moves on with little or no memory of the incident. While the other person is left with something that they carry for the rest of their life and deeply impacts them.
Sometimes little things (not that this was a little thing) can have a very big impact on peoples lives and a lot of people will just tell them to “get over it” or talk it down. I have talked with girls who had their butts grabbed by some guy on a bus and it has devastated them. Instead of being supported and upset that it is has happened people have told them to just “get over themselves” and it was “harmless”. If you feel violated, it isn’t harmless and it isn’t okay.
I am glad Hollywood and other industries of the same ilk are getting blown up and I hope it continues unabated for some time so that this crap can be cleaned out.
