Matt Damon Won't Stop Talking

[Content Note: Rape culture.]

Matt Damon, who has already said so much garbage in response to the exposure of powerful sex predators, won't stop talking. And his latest disgorgement is a real doozy:
"We're in this watershed moment, and it's great, but I think one thing that's not being talked about is there are a whole shitload of guys — the preponderance of men I've worked with — who don't do this kind of thing and whose lives aren't going to be affected," Damon told Business Insider while promoting his new movie, "Downsizing," opening in theaters Friday.
OH GOOD POINT, MATT DAMON! Why are we even talking about all the men who sexually assault people when we could definitely be talking about all the men who don't sexually assault people?!

Thank you for bravely NOTALLMENNING the Me Too Movement, you hero.

I also really love the part where Damon says that only the lives of men who are themselves predators are "going to be affected" by all of this. Cool cool cool.

Keep chilling, Good MenTM.

And then there is this, from the same article:
Business Insider also asked Damon whether the current climate in Hollywood had made him more conscious of the people he'd work with on future projects. Would he back out of a movie if an actor, director, or producer had been accused of sexual misconduct?

"That always went into my thinking," Damon said. "I mean, I wouldn't want to work with somebody who — life's too short for that. But the question of if somebody had allegations against them, you know, it would be a case-by-case basis. You go, 'What's the story here?'"
Life's too short. Wow. LIFE'S TOO SHORT. LOL he wouldn't want to work with a sexual abuser because life's too short! But, then again, maybe it isn't. Life is just long enough to take these things on a case-by-case basis.


Just shut the FUCK up, Matt Damon. Christ.
