Anyone else tired of Monica Lewinsky always bringing up her scandal on Twitter? I get owning your narrative but it's been decades, we don't really care anymore. Gen Z wasn't even around for that.

I disagree. She was trashed for years until recently when the public had a reckoning about harassment and assault, esp by very powerful men. You can say she was willing, but she was 21 and he was the most powerful man in the world. And the public and media blamed her. Now is finally her time to reclaim the actual narrative so I say if it’s cathartic for her then she deserves a little healing.

As long as she is still joked about, I think it’s fair game for her to acknowledge it. And actually, good on her for being able to poke fun at herself and the situation! The whole thing was ridiculously blown out of proportion anyway- don’t you realize how often that same scenario happens in our industry?! Hint: all the time! If all those instances were made in to national news sensation we’d literally have no time for clients or the work. It’s almost funny how scandalized people still are about this.

People should not stand up for their loved ones who commit crimes? What happened to forgiving people 70 times 7? Also, dude, you are out of touch with reality. People do wrong things all the time. US jails are packed with people who have done something. Many of those people do get visits from their loved ones. There are programs (that our tax money pays for!) to help people get jobs when they leave jail. Dude, we also pay for their food while they sit in jail. I mean, it would be way cheaper to just shoot them all. Obviously, we are not going to do that.

Let’s not forget that Monica was only 20 years old at the time when, a married man twice her age, groomed her and abused his Presidential power into sexual privileges for 2 years.

Monica was one of the first bullied figures on a global scale. I lived in a 3rd wold country and its all news would talk about it. I knew about Monica’s name before I learned English. I was a child and yet knew how they treated her was wrong. The amount of unwarranted global hate she received is horrendous. I applaud her resilience. *She can talk about anything she wants, anytime she wants for the rest of her life. She was a victim*

M4… Are you suggesting that we have a system dictating who can date whom? That a spouse can’t decide to perform their duties at home serving the kids because the power dynamic may change? Are spouses to be the exact same age because the older somehow is always grooming the younger? Do they need the same income, same education, always sign a prenup, same parent archetypes, financial positions, inheritances, same gender, race, etc?

That world doesn’t feel real. There will always be power, but luckily there will also always be personal agency. When that agency is stolen from someone, or is not allowed to exist if a certain decision is made, then THATs when we as a society (or law enforcement) need to step in.

Someone above questioned whether ML’s job was in jeopardy. If it was, then that’s a major problem and that’s a power dynamic that needs to be addressed. However…. Simply being a powerful man and having people be intoxicated by his power? That’s part of life. Blaming a person ignoring his or her agency on someone else’s power or status is unfair and is not a basis for saying the relationship is inappropriate.

Now, saying someone was forced to a decision between declining an advance and losing her job? THAT has no agency and hopefully we all agree is illegal and should be prosecuted.

I’ll repeat though, ML is a queen and needs our support.

Only even know she had a Twitter cause you posted it. Maybe just don’t go on her Twitter account if it bothers you?
