Actress raped by Harvey Weinstein testifies he smelled like poop, had no testicles but had a vagina

Former Hellywood producer Harvey Weinstein, 67, is the creep who sparked off the #MeToo social media campaign because of the allegations by more than 80 women that they had been sexually abused by the mogul. Emboldened by the Weinstein case, other women made similar sexual abuse allegations and lawsuits against other powerful men in Hollywood, the media, and other businesses, including NBC’s Matt Lauer, PBS’s Tavis Smiley, Fox News’ Roger Ailes, and CBS’s Charlie Rose and CEO Les Moonves.

On May 25, 2018, Weinstein was arrested in New York and charged with rape. His trial in a Manhattan court began on January 6, 2020. He is also charged with rape in Los Angeles.

Yesterday, one of his accusers, actress Jessica Mann, 34, testified in Manhattan court, and what she said was nothing short of bizarre.

Victoria Bekiempis reports for Vulture, Jan. 31, 2020, that Mann tearily testified that in early 2013, Weinstein forced her into receiving oral sex and raped her.

She said:

  • Weinstein’s hygiene “was very bad,” and that “He smelled like shit — excuse me, sorry, like poop. He just was dirty.”
  • Weinstein “peed on” her once.
  • Weinstein would say, “Do you like my big, fat, Jewish dick?”.
  • But when she saw him fully naked the first time, Weinstein doesn’t have testicles and appeared to have a vagina. Mann said: “The first time I saw him fully naked, I thought he was deformed and intersex. He has an extreme scarring that I didn’t know, maybe [he] was a burn victim.… He does not have testicles, and it appears that he has a vagina…. [H]e got on top of me, and that’s when he put himself inside of me, his penis inside of me” without a condom.
  • Mann said that after she was raped, she went to the bathroom and saw a needle in the trash can. She grabbed it, looked at it and remembered the name because she “wanted to Google it.” She said: “I do not remember the medical term, but when I Googled it, it basically implied dead-penis-type thing.”

As the sloppily besuited Weinstein left court for the day, Vulture asked whether Mann’s description of his body was accurate. He replied, “Yeah, perfect.”

If Weinstein indeed has both a penis (however deformed) and a vagina, that would make him a hermaphrodite or what some prefer to call “intersex”.

Update (June 13, 2020):

Weinstein’s genital deformity supposedly is due to an acute infection of the genital region known as Fournier’s gangrene that diabetics and middle-aged men are prone to. (Daily Mail)

Because children “know who they are.” California bill would limit genitalia surgery for children

Sponsor of this bill, Scott Wiener, who believes children are wholly equipped to make medical decisions.

Parental consent/control will be a thing of the past. Minors can now provide legal consent for/against medical surgeries!

Wonder what kind of impact this will have on medical malpractice insurance rates…

From SFGate: California doctors would be barred from treating or performing surgery on children born with genitals that don’t fit a single gender or are otherwise atypical unless it’s medically necessary or the child consents, under a bill unveiled Monday.

It’s the latest effort by state legislators to give minors more control over their bodies and gender identities. “The fundamental premise of the legislation is that people should make decisions about their own bodies,” said Democratic Sen. Scott Wiener of San Francisco, the bill’s sponsor. “In California we strongly believe that people are who they are and that we shouldn’t be telling people who they are supposed to be.”

Doctors, though, said the bill may go too far in restricting how they can treat patients. The California Medical Association hasn’t taken a formal position on the bill but has “very serious concerns” that include the bill’s lack of a definition around when a minor is old enough to consent. “Our concern is that the approach in this bill may be being overly prescriptive and not give families and medical professionals the ability to take the specifics of each case into account,” Janus Norman, senior vice president for governmental relations, said in a statement.

The bill focuses on intersex minors, defined as someone who is born with atypical physical sex characteristics, which could include genitals or internal organs that don’t conform to a single gender.

InterACT, a nonprofit working to expand rights for intersex youth, estimates just less than 2 percent of the U.S. population has some type of intersex characteristic. That includes a broad range of characteristics ranging from an enlarged clitoris or a misplaced urethra opening on the penis to genitalia that don’t clearly match one gender.

About one in 2,000 babies are estimated to have visible genital differences putting them at risk of early surgery, said Kimberly Zieselman, the group’s executive director. Unnecessary surgeries could mistakenly identify a child’s preferred gender or, in cases unrelated to gender, leave scarring or affect future fertility, she said.

“It’s not just a gender issue,” Zieselman said. “There are a lot of other harms that happen to many intersex people as a result of the interventions that are psychological and physical.”

Under Wiener’s bill, doctors and parents wouldn’t be allowed to move ahead with treatment or surgery unless it is medically necessary, such as something that would prevent a child from urinating. Treatments or surgeries outlined in the bill include removal or reduction of the clitoris or removal of the ovaries or testis. It could also bar additional procedures not specifically outlined in the bill.

If a doctor considers surgery medically necessary, he or she would need parental consent. If the treatment isn’t necessary, the doctor and parents would have to wait until the child is old enough to give consent and obtain approval for any procedures.

The bill doesn’t define when a minor can give consent. It is intentionally vague, Wiener’s office said, and would rely on guidelines already in state law around when a child is able to consent on certain medical procedures. The California Medical Association cited that as a reason for concern.

“There are also serious questions about the nature and legal threshold for informed consent as used in the bill,” Norman said.

Under current medical guidelines, doctors form teams of experts, including psychologists or urologists, to evaluate each individual circumstance. Considering the physical and emotional health of the future child is a key piece of the evaluation, Norman said.

Under the bill, doctors could not be criminally held responsible if they violate the law but could be disciplined by the state’s medical board.

Wiener said his office will work with the medical association if it has constructive feedback.
