I'm beginning to wonder how much celebrity sexual harassment stuff is just office grade gossip that has been elevated because the people involved are celebrities, I've started to presume when we don't hear the details it is because they know people would just roll their eyes at it "he called me sweetie" grade stuff, so best leave it up to our imagination so that we group it in with the sort we do hear about, like date rapist Kevin Spacey. This particular one was obviously hot on the heels of the Jimmy Savile story breaking so there was a news narrative momentum to find more related stories, no matter how ropey.
The Tory 'dirty dossier' was a fucking joke for some of the stuff on it 'good heavens, they dated someone they met through work, stop the presses!' but spun like we should be calling for blood. It has lead me to the hardly revolutionary conclusion there is a bias to make this stuff seam worse than it is to sell rags and therefore until I hear very expressly what happened in reported sexually harassment incidents with high profile people I am presuming nothing noteworthy did.
