@guest2 so basically the difference is that you like the Obamas but you don’t like Harry and Meghan. They’re both influential couples with no experience in media production.
@mamamia-user-482898552 you can see that that’s all speculation, right? You can’t possibly know if people will be interested in them long term or if they even care. You also can’t possibly know what their long term plans are- you’re making huge assumptions based on nothing but your personal opinions about people you’ve never met.
@schoolie8x I was literally there in the class with them for every other lesson at my co-Ed school. It’s not problematic, just a fact. I doubt anyone was running covert lunchtime classes about consent for the male students.
The term ‘carnal knowledge’ makes my skin crawl. It implies they just trespassed somewhere they shouldn’t and doesn’t acknowledge that there’s a victim. Rape needs to be called rape.
@gu3st agree, except anyone who can’t get it for medical reasons should also get a pass. Though I guess it’s problematic to implement it before everyone has had the chance to be vaccinated.
Why is this even taking more than 24hrs to act on? He has to stand down, there’s no other option. To keep him in cabinet would confirm all the worst things that the LNP has been accused of this week. At least Reynolds fired the rapist in her office!
So an advertising agency created an ad they knew Facebook would ban so they could generate exposure by being outraged.
@rush I think they actually tried that in the first year and it didn’t rate well. No one wants to see real heartbreak or vulnerability at 7.30 on a weekday.
@chrissyinthemiddle invades his mother's privacy? How? Theres no footage of her, none of her personal effects or documents, not even her words.
I think you missed his main point- its fictional. You cant invade someones privacy through fiction.
You also cant 'invade the privacy' of the deceased, or we are going to have to scrap all biographical films and a whole lot of our written history.
@mamamia-user-482898552 you can say 'factual' things about anyone that are still unkind and unfair.
Are we judging people on what we think they 'expect' now? How exhausting. But if they did expect that it seems to have been very reasonable, considering they've already signed the deals.
I don't understand why are you so intent on proving that if they weren't royal they wouldn't get the contracts they have. Of course they wouldn't. But they are royal, Harry always has been, and thats why Netflix and Spotify want to pay them. That doesn't make them bad people. Theres no arbitrary rule that if you stop being a working royal you have to refuse any opportunities that you wouldn't have gotten if you had never been royal, thats not how reality works.
"It's kind of like resigning from a job but expecting to still be able to use the old business letterhead for gravitas and to have ongoing access to the black-book connections of your former employer."
@guest2 so? I never said there weren’t benefits to being royal. The PR team covering your mistakes is just part of the deal.
Using the Obamas is a weird choice, theyre less qualified in media than Meghan and Harry are. The only 'qualifications' to be a producer is that Netflix thinks you can sell the product. Thats the criteria both couples have met. If Netflix wants to give them a few hundred million dollars then its certainly within everyones rights.
They don’t care about women, that’s the simple truth. It shouldn’t be a revelation, Julia told us, their policies told us, the make up of this government told us- now poor Brittany has told us.
@laura__palmer not to mention what Dylan has to say. And what Ronan encountered from his own father while investigating Weinstein.
@katp because, as you pointed out, some sectors of society are policed and scrutinised much more than others. Exactly like your smacking analogy, no one is knocking on middle class doors.
@mamamia-user-482898552 most of us would look fairly unqualified if you removed the better art of our life experience from the resume. Harry has been a working royal for 20 years, that’s a pretty huge amount of experience.
@guest2 that’s entirely a matter of opinion.
@mamamia-user-482898552 I think they know where he is.
The Woody apologists are out in full force, it seems.
I guess the simplest explanation is usually the right one- it makes a lot more sense that she went over the cliff than an elaborate escape plan. I hope there is a good support system in the family for her son.
@schoolie8x um okay. Should we get the kids to act out a rape then for a more hands-on learning experience? I’d say that hearing first hand experiences is a pretty great learning technique- I certainly don’t remember any maths lessons the way I remember that class.
