France's most revered actress Catherine Deneuve hit out Tuesday at a new "puritanism" sparked by sexual harassment scandals, declaring that men should be "free to hit on" women.
She was one of around 100 French women writers, performers and academics who wrote an open letter deploring the wave of "denunciations" that has followed claims that Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein raped and sexually assaulted women over decades.
They claimed that the "witch-hunt" that has followed threatens sexual freedom.
"Instead of helping women, this frenzy to send these (male chauvinist) 'pigs' to the abattoir actually helps the enemies of sexual liberty -- religious extremists and the worst sort of reactionaries," the collective of women who signed the letter said.

"They insisted that women were "sufficiently aware that the sexual urge is by its nature wild and aggressive. But we are also clear-eyed enough not to confuse an awkward attempt to pick someone up with a sexual attack."
Apples and oranges. Weinslime is a full on sexual predator.
You get no argument from me on that.
Many of the #MeToo snowflakes were upset that a customer or waiter hit on them once while the other was working/dining.
The definition was wildly stretched to the point that it became meaningless except for broad attacks in all heterosexual men.
If guys can’t talk to girls there’s no dating....just say’n.
You can’t tell me some of these accusations are bleeding over from outright assault into he pinched my ass or put his hand too low on the small of my back
And now I’m #metoo same as some girl held down and screwed up her booty involuntarily or fatstein jerking off on girls and other weirdo crap
Or asked me out too often so I felt intimidated
A witch hunt conducted by the vile on the vile which is why we are enjoying it
Fembots have glommed it for themselves and now Hollywood has pivoted onto making it a segue to Oprah as POTUS and she has molded it to race victimhood
Which is bizarre because guess who raped Oprah all her young life and pretty much molded her into this bored white emo housewives empathy clarion
Her black uncle and cousins in Nashville and I think Milwaukee
Yet white racism is the bogeyman
What pisses me off in all this is the homosexual predators are by and large getting away with it
I’ll take “Yes” for 400 Alex.
Oh wow....that must be Deneuve in Belle du Jour.
Saw her in Playboy circa 1965. That was then...
Or complimented how nice my new haircut looked.
I know a thing or two because I’ve seen a thing or two. A few times over the years, I have seen a woman get irritated because she couldn’t get the attention of a man and push her breasts up against his arm. THAT got his attention!
And Farmers covered it.
And? Feminazis want men ‘put in their place’ (out in the cold).
Founders were dykes. Men were as useless tonabwoman as a bicycle is to a fish.
One millenial feminist said that if a woman ‘wants to f***’ SHE will tell YOU”, never mind that you may find her obnoxious, vulgar, trashy, ugly, or offlimits because you could already be in a relationship.
They’ve weaponized sex.
One of our planet’s sexiest ever...
Agree on Weinstein.
However, he has been used as only the starting block for a gang of half dressed women in Hollywood to promote slander of all men with the presumption they are all just as guilty of the same charge as Weinstein.
These public stripper girls (called “actresses”) strain themselves to blow on about even unprovable, uncorroborated and idiotic tales against all men, for having at some time in their life even flirted with some woman.
Good for Catherine D.
Although, she sets up herself to turn the slander against the “religious”, indicating that the religious also singularly blame only the men, and that this war on men helps those religious people she reviles.
There is a huge difference between “being hit on” and sexual assault?
Love talking to women.
I have a friend I always flirt with and we both have no intention of anything ever happening...
Well, maybe once before we die or end up in a rest home...
1) In her day, Denueve was drop-dead gorgeous. Not a very talented actress, to be honest, but worth four drools if only two stars.
2) Women in her day knew how to deflect male advances without complaining to HR or filing a lawsuit. Women today can’t be bothered to learn how to do that.
3) The modern feminist approach to male-female interactions threatens to totally wall off meaningful dialogue between the sexes which would truly be a shame.
