Extra! Extra!! Bruce Weber Fondles Male Model

How is this news?

Is every male celebrity who got turned down for a sexual advance going to be a suspect now? Is this the first battle in a War on Men?

This is about powerful people creating a system where people with lesser power are expected to give in to sexual advances in order to get work.

It's not an "equal" situation where you can "slap a hand away". These powerful abusers have other powerful people helping them to carry out this harassment/abuse.

The modeling industry was designed to service old men. There is no reason it needs to be this way.

R16 — these are NOT jobs of necessity like just about any other job. This guy sought out being a model for high pay and fame. I am not saying that justifies harassment BUT it does make it really hard for him to say convincingly that he didn’t have any idea he would be exposed to lewd conduct and it makes it really hard for him to say that his sense of violation from a grope (as opposed to a rape) is reasonable or acute. Publishing this guy’s story is basically a derailment tactic intended to muddy the waters. Men face not even an iota if the quantity or quality of daily harassment that women of all ages and attractiveness face.

I get that this was a guy pursuing a modeling career. But, Why is there such a lack of any empathy for men? Having been a 16-22yo guy at one time I can tell you that you end up in situations that are uncomfortable and those situations are sometimes at the hands of men AND WOMEN! As a male, you are actually in a worse spot than a woman in the aftermath of these assaults, as society has always told you to be strong & defend yourself while holding in your emotions.

So in summary: go fuck your goddamn self, you sorry ass fucking piece of shit!

Seriously, what you people want to do is make everyone POWERLESS and therefore not remotely responsible for how they react to a situation should one arrive -- and I assure you there are plenty of people, male and female, who have slapped hands away, walked out on meetings that went wrong, and just said "Fuck you" in general. And many of them did quite well since nobody has that much power in the business (you can piss off 50 casting directors and there are 500 more out there and all you need is a couple to like and believe in you. Ditto, agents, etc.)

The notion of models bending over for every photographer just because of some imbalance of power is straight out of Lena Dunham thinking and we all know how flawed that is. You don't like it, leave. Or, as Courtney Love put it so well, DON'T GO in the first place. (An agent sets up these gigs; models don't just walk in from the bus station. There are plenty of people to confer with over this stuff, even when a model or actor is starting out. This "it all happened TO me" mentality is pissing me off big time. Say no, grow a couple, and leave -- and don't come back. So much more of this is within our control but nobody wants to believe that since what fun is it if you aren't a Victim of your own life?

WTF-- have you all never read or seen "Chop Suey"?

It was like N A M B L A ran a publishing company and movie studio

It was all about how he found this working class kid named Peter Johnson at a wrestling camp when he was 16

Paid off Johnson's parents to allow him to move in with Weber in his house upstate where, as Weber outlines in extreme detail in the book, he would have Johnson dress up in different homoerotic costumes (sailor, farmboy, etc.) and have his (Weber's) friends come over to ogle Peter and photograph him.

Eventually, after much cajoling, he talked Peter into posing nude.

Johnson supposedly went to the local high school up in wherever Weber lives in the Catskills. "Hi, I'm Peter the new kid. I live with that famous gay photographer so he can take photos of me whenever he wants."

And then to top it all off, Johnson got married when he was 19, no doubt to prove to himself/the world that he was actually straight.

Weber should have his balls removed with a wire cutter and no anesthesia and probably a few fingers and toes as wel.

Truly a horrible human, protected by the fashion establishment.

Designing and selling shit made in Asian sweatshops by forced child labor then turning around and selling said shit at an outrageous markup normally doesn't qualify one for a Nobel prize or even make them a decent human being.

Oh please, seriously, when did all these Victorian prudes arrive at DL? Weber no more molested Peter from "Chop Suey" than the man in the moon. I love Peter's story about how Weber was in town and wanted to see models and how Peter was warned that the photographer was a homo who would lure him into evil and don't do it -- and he says, more or less, "Where do I sign up?" That is almost every straight kid I have known in the business. Not necessarily curious but cool with it all.

I know a gay photographer who takes nude photos of hot guys and it's amazing how many of the straight ones are open to "want me to help you with that? Seems a shame to waste it" conversation. And in his case he's taking erect photos of men, not nude-adjacent pictures of men cupping their junk.

A couple of years ago, the Daily Fail had a video interview with Bruce Weber. The topic was the accusations against Terry Richardson. Weber said something like Terry Richardson needs "to get help." In the Comments section, someone called Weber a hypocrite because it was well known within the industry that Weber's thing is young males vs. Richardson's taste for young females. Another person commented that they worked for an agency in the 80s or 90s and although they warned Weber's agent that the male model does not do nudity, Weber often hinted during the go see that the model wouldn't be considered for Ralph Lauren or Calvin Klein ads if he didn't disrobe. Then you have the Michael Bergin book, which I always thought was more interesting as a male model memoir than a book about Carolyn Bessette, where Weber attempted to give Bergin what Weber called a "Chinese massage." Of course this entailed Bergin being completely naked.

I am torn on this. On the one hand I think these guys have a right to be respected and that being molested by a creepy guy is not one of them.

On the other hand, even when I first saw his work 30 years ago I knew guys would have to put out. Let’s be honest here. You become a Bruce Weber model , everyone knows you have been immortalised in some way. Your beauty will be forever be seen and admired.

You are a male model in a world dominated by female fashion and yes some guys will come onto you. But let’s be honest here, you are a model because you are trying to seduce people into buying the product or seeing themselves with the product or seeing themselves with you.

You are seducing the camera as well. You want the camera to love you.

If I had to live my life again I would ride a dildo and fuck an audience to be photographed by Weber.

Yep I love the look.

I get the harassment and the bullshit that can come with it, which is bullshit. But I also get that they use their looks to get further ahead than most of us.

So I am sort of torn

I know. Let's have our high powered agent arrange for us to shoot with a photographer known worldwide for his nudes and studies in male sexuality -- and then get all bashful and victimized when actual sex is discussed. Trust me, this is one of those "Follow the goddam money" things.

Men can punch. Unless it's a kid whose hand is being shoved down his own pants, there is no excuse. Even if you "froze", you still did it. Grow the fuck up.

And any gay men who have ogled Weber's work -- and I am one -- should be embarrassed at the hypocrisy if they are thinking "Oh, that poor young man." Such disingenuous bullshit. But I am almost 100% convinced the Victim Brigade are all silly women. Now more than ever.

Weber might have a groping hand, but at least he had a good eye for classic male beauty. He was one of the last true aesthetes.

The guys he picked out of obscurity and immortalized in world-wide campaigns (e.g. Bergin for Calvin Klein) were great choices.

Once Weber’s jettisoned, classic-look / beefcake models won’t have as many big-campaign opportunities.

The new post-Weber fashion is for borderline anorexic, freaky-looking male models (thanks to those ‘innovators’ at Prada and Burberry).

And the rest of today’s big campaigns go to HW actors and their ugly spawn.

At least this new batch of male models (e.g. Jude Law’s son) will be safe from molestation. No one would care to bother.

I read male model Bruce Hulse’s book (photo of him below) and he described a very respectful close relationship with Weber.

Then again, I read Bergin’s saucy book and he was very bemused by Weber’s awkward seduction attempt. The seduction trick Weber allegedly tried on Bergin (smthg like “you look so tense, would you like a Buddhist neck massage to relax?”) was so old-school - it made me feel vicariously embarrassed for Weber.

Bergin was apparently silly enough to fall for it initially, but then his brain switched on and he stormed out.

Former 80's model Daryl Janney spoke today with from Business of Fashion:

D.L. Janney, a former male model, who recently released a memoir called “Blacklisted,” which details his time in the industry, said that while on a break during a shoot for British Vogue in 1982, Weber asked him to strip down to his underwear for a photo he could take to Calvin Klein, whose campaigns Weber was shooting at the time. Janney was eager to comply until Weber asked him to get completely nude. According to Janney, Weber said that the photos would not be published anywhere and were for “his own use, and to show Calvin.”

When Janney refused, he said the photographer refused to speak with him for the rest of the day. On another occasion, Weber had hired both Janney and his brother for a shoot for GQ; Weber asked the two brothers to remove their shirts and, according to Janney, “pretend to be boyfriends.” When they refused, Janney said they were subject to verbal abuse. As outlined in his book, Janney believes that Weber “blacklisted” him from the industry shortly after, making it impossible for him to find work as a model.

by Anonymousreply 237Last Wednesday at 2:10 PM

Another one:

Alex Geerman, a former model, massage therapist and healer, said that in 2008, Weber asked him to do “breathing exercises” that involved non-consensual touching of the chakras, including the root chakra, which is located around the genitals. “I didn’t understand what he was doing, and he didn’t explain it,” recalled Geerman, who said he left the shoot so disturbed he told his mother, who was waiting outside the studio: “I don’t want to do this anymore.” Yet, Geerman said that although he was upset at the time, he no longer believes that Weber did anything wrong. “It took me years to figure out, it wasn't a sexual thing. It was an art thing,” said Geerman.

Christopher Cates, a fit model, said that while on set for a photoshoot at Weber’s Miami home in 2006, the photographer asked each model to join him alone in a guest bedroom upstairs, away from the rest of the crew. Cates said that when he entered the room, Weber asked him to remove his shirt and pants, and later his underwear, and then proceeded to touch him inappropriately. According to Cates, Weber took photos during the incident using a digital SLR camera, though those photos were, to Cates’ knowledge, never used for any professional purpose.

Ryan Vigilant, said the photographer touched him inappropriately in a sexual manner during a shoot in 2008. Vigilant initially did not want to name Weber directly. However, after reading Weber’s statement in response to the New York Times story, he changed his mind. “The statements that Bruce and Mario, or should I say their lawyers made, pains me,” he wrote via email. “I don’t understand their denial. Either their sense of entitlement has so clouded their ethical judgement, it’s not based in reality anymore. Or they are going through so much pain internally and are destroying themselves.”
