The important truth is that he was just another libidinous cad in a libertine culture that long ago dispensed with most notions of personal restraint and gentlemanly behavior. “I came of age in the ’60s and ’70s, when all the rules about behavior and workplaces were different,” Weinstein wrote in his mea culpa to The Times last week. “That was the culture then.”
Yes, if anything has been well-established about Hollywood it’s that the sexual exploitation of women was entirely unknown until the 60s. And certainly when individuals blame the culture for their actions they should be taken at face value.
