It’s unfortunate that this topic had to be discussed, but the #TimesUp movement has become much bigger than Hollywood.
With all of the never-ending sexual assault allegations of big names in the entertainment industry, the way we treat celebrities has to be deliberated upon. We discussed the dangers of holding celebrities to higher standards, as well as the difficulty in avoiding this situation.
While the allegations have been centered around Hollywood, it’s clear that sexual assault is a systematic problem. How have these allegations affected us, and what does it say about our society? This movement has much more of an impact than just exposing perpetrators.
Lastly, we thought about our own actions. It’s a difficult question of whether or not to separate the artist’s work from their moral character, but one that is unavoidable in today’s climate.
