    What's the difference between Hefner and Weinstein?

    Suave and debonair ladie's man Hefner instititionalised career advancement in exchange for sexual favours. He made it acceptable.
    Ugly fat bald Weinstein is a boy scout compared to Hefner but his career was ruined pre court for expecting what Hefner created.
    What are the differences between lovable Hef and hated Weinstein?
    Stars such as MJ are still popular with the same people who are pilloring Weinstein.
    MJ had alimony settlements with children.
    If Weinstein looked like Brad Pitt would there be as many or indeed any complaints?

    Selling sex was Hugh's job. He made it his raison d'ĂȘtre for all the world to see. While he may have helped cultivate our current 'porn/rape culture' - he was far more into paying consenting girls in exchange for sex, etc. (As well as 'hiring' them for his 'friends'.) He wasn't known to force himself on anyone; nor did he supposedly allow his guests to engage in non-consentual sex.

    Of course there are stories; and what is the likelihood of nothing shady or illegal ever going on during all those decades? Prostitution is illegal - yet, it is one of those things that people still argue about being legalized for various reasons, like marijuana. So, Hugh's 'sexcapades' were more 'accepted'.

    So, the big difference between Hefner and Weinstein would be consent. Maybe you've heard: rape is a big no-no; and naughty touching is NOT allowed without a personal invite into a woman's personal space. Do I need to go into the details of why forcing someone to watch you masturbate is wrong?

    Strange but true - consent makes all the difference.

      If course I agree.
      However from a legal stance the character of the alleged victim plus the time it takes to report plus the circumstances of the alleged facts governs the legal success or failure of court action.
