    We recently finished S2 and my comments echo a lot of the statements already made here. But I will say this: Stranger Things, as a whole, really makes me miss being a kid in the 80s.

    Verbal abuse? Is this a joke? Fucking deal. Lumping the Duffers in with sexual predators only helps distract from legitimate claims in the movement. They may be dicks to work for but there is nothing illegal about hurting peoples feelings.

    Yeah I agree this just sounds like an attention ploy. Wasn't Hitchcock a dick to his actresses?

    For fucks sake.
    They cry about the smallest things these days, just to get attention.
    If they keep this up, then people might end up not believing someone, that is in REAL danger.

    "Oh no, someone raised their voice at me, and don't treat me like a little princess. Those horrible monsters!!"

    They wouldn't have survived two seconds back in the 20th century...

    I knew from the get-go that the #metoo movement would devolve into a witch hunt. It was only a matter of time. Aziz Ansari was the first casualty when that date of his went bad, never said “no” but then went online and outed him as a “predator” just because he wasn’t a mind reader. Now this. I’m all for women around the world speaking out against vile filth, but I also know plenty of shitty people (women are NOT excluded) that will go to great lengths to destroy another’s life, and basically the way this shit goes down in our society is: one accusation - that’s it. Doesn’t matter if it won’t stand up in a court of law. You have already been summarily executed by the court of public opinion.

    He was more than a dick. A tenth of the stuff that his actresses have said about him would be enough to end a career in today's industry. (And I say that as an enormous Hitchcock fan.)
