Janet Mock Talks Jane Fonda, Harvey Weinstein, and the Spirit of the 'Resist' Movement (Exclusive)
Janet Mock has no qualms about calling out double standards.

As men and women in Hollywood continue to go public with experiences of sexual harassment and abuse, the Lgbtq activist and author shared her perspective on the role that race plays in how said stories are reported, and praised Jane Fonda for speaking to the hypocrisy.

“I think about the discrepancies between the amount of attention that the [Harvey] Weinstein story got vs. say, the R. Kelly story,” Mock told Et during the Pen Center USA 27th Annual Literature Awards Festival in Beverly Hills, California, on Friday, where she received the Freedom to Write Award. “I think, even within our media, we tend to only report on the ‘perfect’ kind of victim.”

In Kelly's case, multiple women have come forward (before and after allegations against Weinstein began to dominate the news cycle) to accuse the R&B singer of sexual and physical abuse. While Weinstein seemingly

Two Guys Who Definitely Deserve Jail Time: Harvey Weinstein and R. Kelly

The controversy goes on about what to do with the increasing number of allegations against Harvey Weinstein (and now what appears to be countless others) and singer R. Kelly.
