Još jedna optužba za silovanje
Rouz MekGovan, poznata glumica, optužila je Aleksandra Pavnea, slavnog reditelja i dobitnika Oskara, da je silovao kada je imala samo 15 godina.
Iako je već 2018. godine opisivala ovaj nemili događaj, tada nije želela javno da kaže o kome se radi. - Godinama sam mislila da se radilo o jednom običnom seksualnom iskustvu, ali sada znam da se radilo o pedofiliji - rekla je tada glumica i dodala:
- Privlačio me je pa sam mislila da je problem u meni, ali ja sam bila maloletna, a on zreo muškarac. Postavio me da sednemo i upalioje pornić koji smo zajedno gledali. Ako se seksaš s maloletnikom, činiš krivično delo, čak i ako toga maloletnik nije svestan- dodala je. Tim povodom objavila je fotografiju sebe sa 15 godina na Instagramu i zahtevala izvinjenje. Pajne se još nije oglasio povodom optužbi.
Last night I dropped a bomb of truth. For years I had thought a man I had sexual relations with was a a sexual experience I had. I now know I was groomed. I auditioned for him at 15. After my experience with him, I quit acting entirely until I was ‘discovered’ at 21. When that happened, I was like, fuck it, let’s do this. I even tweeted a congratulations on his Oscar win in 2012, that’s how deep in the Cult of Hollywood I was. It wasn’t until three weeks after the Weinstein story broke that I re-evaluated the situation. I feel badly about throwing a bomb into someone’s life and career, but I guess that’s social conditioning. I’m more sad than angry. Sad for 15 year-old me. Sad for the adult me that still thought it was a choice I made. Grooming is real. I want you all to know that it’s not your fault if you were mentally massaged into thinking it’s okay. It is not. I know this now. I would even go up to this director at events and ask him, with a smile, “remember when you had sex with me at 15?” And I would laugh it off. That is deep societal programming. If you are out there trying to have sex with an underage minor, you are committing a crime, even if the minor doesn’t know it. I was attracted to him, so I thought it was on me, but that’s not correct. I was not an adult. When it happened, I’d recently been left behind in Hollywood by a family member to fend for myself. The wolves preyed. Please recognize that if this has happened to you, the shame is not yours, it’s theirs. Give it back. Groomers are skilled operators and at 15, I was not aware of the warning signs. I named him on Twitter, but since Instagram is my softer side, I just don’t want his name here. Goddess bless us all, except for those that abuse their power. Here’s to freedom, yours and mine.
Inače, glumica je jedna od prvih žena koja je prozvala zlostavljača Harvija Bajnštajna. NJega je takođe optužila za silovanje, a svoje iskustvo opisala u memoarima: - Ukočila sam se, kao kip - opisala je trenutak iz 1997. godine, samo nekoliko trenutaka pre nego što je silovana. Vajnštajn je zbog ovog događaja osuđen na 23 godine zatvora.
