That article was a bit confusing.
Am I to believe a director asked her to touch herself, while she had her legs spread open and raised on a chair handle?
She was 18, at that time, right?
She kept quiet all of those years. Now, she speaks, but she won't reveal the name(s) of the abusers.
What the h* is wrong with her?
I feel tho thowwy for poor Thandie.
I always remember when her character finally vanished in the film of BELOVED, and some queen said really loudly right behind me, "Oh, THANK GOD!!!" and the whole theater erupted into laughter.
It was probably Oprah who "casting couched" her during the filming of Beloved. Gayle must have been PISSED!
She's dull. Presumably she's also a Scientologist, otherwise she wouldn't have been cast in Cruise's MIWhatever.
What the hell is wrong with her? The same thing that is wrong with all the others, she doesn't dare out the assholes, because she and her husband still want to have a career. What the hell is wrong with you asking what is wrong with her?
I'll never tell ... I'l never tell ...
[quote]Presumably she's also a Scientologist, otherwise she wouldn't have been cast in Cruise's MIWhatever.
She was also in Crash -- everyone associated with that is tainted by Scientology, fairly or not. However, I thought she did brilliant work in that.
She is not giving up any names. So no story there
THandie needs to sit down
Victim? I don't know. Someone is victimized when it's not consensual. If someone says "Ill give you A if you do B" and you agree to it, that's prostitution, not abuse. If you say no, and the person presses you or threatens you, that's abuse. It sounds like she went along with it to get a job. She could have said no and walked away. He's a disgusting pig, of course, but she wasn't raped. He propositioned her and she agreed.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
