Trust Gandalf on this One By Mrs Vera West

     We have all thought it, but now, one of the most loved actors of all time, Ian McKellen, has come out and said it, many of the women in the MeTooism, are just playing victims:

“One of Britain’s most treasured actors has spoken out about the Hollywood sex scandal.  Sir Ian McKellen told Oxford students that women who offered sex for acting work were taken advantage of, but many are playing the victim.
McKellen, known for playing King Lear, Gandalf and Magneto, started out as an actor in the 1960s in the theater, when he claims offering sex for roles was rife.
“When I was starting out acting in the early 1960s, the director of the theater I was working at showed me some photographs he got from some women who were wanting jobs,” he told students at the intimate Oxford talk.
“They were actors. Some of them had – and i think these were the initials – DRR: Director’s rights respected. In other words, if you give me a job you can have sex with me.
“That was commonplace from people who propose that they should be a victim.  I mean, madness. So people are taking advantage of that and encouraged it, and it absolutely will not do.”

     This is stating the obvious, but sometimes, especially in times of madness and hysteria, the obvious needs to be stated, loudly.
