Actress Ellen Page: Brett Ratner outed me at 18 - Hot Air Hot Air

Ultimately the thing that stands out most from this lengthy statement is Page’s sense that people in the industry know about the “ubiquitous” abusers. She writes, “You know who they are; they’ve been discussed behind closed doors as often as Weinstein was.” Page adds, “If I, a person with significant privilege, remain reluctant and at such risk simply by saying a person’s name, what are the options for those who do not have what I have?” So long as the abusers have money and lawyers, many of them are going to continue working in Hollywood.


But maybe their political influence will be reduced.
