Did you break up with someone?
At first the question made me angry, I thought it sexist, stereotypical, disheartening. There was no death of a relationship that made me so in need of freedom that I'd alter myself. The more the break up question was asked, the more it made me think about my motives. I realised I had broken up with someone. I broke up with you. The collective you, the societal you. I broke up with the Hollywood ideal, the one that I had a part in playing. The ideal version of a woman that is sold to you by every actress in every hair commercial telling you, "this the secret to being beguiling, the secret to getting a man to want you." Long, glossy Kardashian-esque hair that says, "fuck me, big boy." As if that's all we are and all we can be. Hair. Hair is what I broke up with. And it was a break up that was years in the making; it took a lot to wake me from my brainwashed slumber. My long hair had always made me uncomfortable. It felt like I had a plant on my head and a sex target on my back. It made men en masse look at me while the real me disappeared. I would use it to cover my face, to check out, to sleep. And sleep I did. The real Rose slept while the hair Rose lived a bizarre alternate life playing the part of someone who played parts.

The Stories Of Male Sexual Assault Survivors Need To Be Heard
Contributing to this devastating reality is that for men, almost everything is considered a weakness — inexperience, asking for help, feeling sad, feeling too happy, not expressing anger physically enough, knowing too little, knowing too much, and, especially, not having sex. In this system, women and other non-masculine people are defined as objects and men/masculine people are collectors of these objects; sex is the proof of this collection, which, society dictates, men should strive to make as large as possible. Sex is the goal, a proof of virility.

Roy Price resigns as Amazon Studios chief following sexual harassment allegation - LA Times
Hackett told the trade publication that she rejected Price’s advances, telling him that she is a lesbian with a wife and children. The producer is the daughter of Philip K. Dick, the author of the original 1962 novel “The Man in the High Castle.”

Price’s resignation isn’t likely to impact Amazon’s commitment to making streaming video available to its subscribers, according to Michael Pachter, managing director of equity research for Wedbush Securities.

He estimates the company is spending $4.5 billion this year on video content. Original series and other content are available to Amazon Prime members who spend $99 a year for free shipping from the e-commerce site.

“It’s been a real value enhancer,” Pachter said. “Amazon is not going to stop doing it. It just means getting a new person in there is going to change the content mix over the next few years.”
