Rose McGowan refers back to critics who claim that #metoo makes it difficult for men to flirt with women
Actress Rose McGowan has repulsed critics who claim that the # metoo movement has made it harder for men to flirt with women.
The Charmed star, 46, made the remarks prior to the upcoming court case against the disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, 67, who was hit with a stream of various attacks on sexual abuse.
She rejected the idea that the movement, caused by indignation after several attacks on a number of prominent industrial figures, prevents men from flirting with women for fear of being accused of sexual harassment.
Speaking with Hunter Magazine – as reported by The Sun Sunday Times – McGowan said these comments wanted her to “hit her head to the ground.”

The claim that the # metoo movement has blurred the lines between flirting and sexual harassment has been made by several prominent figures from the film world, including French actress Catherine Deneuve, who signed a letter in 2018 stating that men have the “freedom to should have “” Ladies.
McGowan said, “If you don’t grab people against their will, you have to be fine. If you are not looking for revenge because you don’t like this girl, then you have to be fine. ”
“It’s fine to flirt, but it’s something different when someone buys you a drink and thinks he owns your hour or that evening,” she added.
Weinstein will be convicted in New York in early January for sexual abuse and rape.
The notorious producer will be tried for the rape of a woman in a hotel in Manhattan in 2013, and a violent sexual act against another woman in 2006. He denied both allegations and stated that the interactions were consensual.
McGowan said that flirting with women was completely acceptable as long as no line was crossed after prominent voices claimed that men did not know how to approach women after the # metoo era. Shown during the GQ Men of the Year Awards on September 5, 2018
Countless women came forward against Weinstein after revelations were made in one New York Times October 2017 article claiming that the film magnate had purchased the silence of various women whom he reportedly attacked for many decades.
Days after the bombing article, several women shared their own experience of sexual harassment or sexual abuse on Twitter with the help of the hashtag “me too”, which was driving a viral movement around the world.
Actresses Alyssa Milano and Rose McGowan, who worked together on the hit TV series Charmed of the 90s, were among the most active and prominent voices of the movement.
McGowan himself spoke against Weinstein and claimed that he had sexually abused her in a hotel in 1997.
After the fuss online, some commentators offered that the cruelty of female ire men was discouraging to flirt with women to whom they were attracted.
In January 2018, several French actresses, including Catherine Deneuve, then 74, signed a letter stating that the # metoo movement infantilized women and contributed to a climate of sexual puritanism.
Deneuve herself had been critical of the movement since the early days of her French cousin, “balance ton porc,” or “expose your pig.”

Speaking of the # balancetoporc movement in a TV interview with the Quotidien program in 2017, the actress said she did not think it would provide a solution to the problem of sexual harassment in France, and added the term “pig” to ” excessive ‘to’ and ‘terrible’.
In July of the same year, Deneuve said Harper Bazaar: ‘Desire forms the core of many creative professions, such as film, music and fashion photography. The challenge is to know the limit and to understand the difference between flirting and going too far. “
As far as Weinstein is concerned, a provisional global settlement of his legal team could distribute $ 25 million (£ 19.1 million) to more than two dozen prosecutors of the producer.
Weinstein complained that he had become a “forgotten man” after the accusations that led to his imprisonment in an interview with the New York Post’s Page six.
