We know why.
Don’t forget Charlie Sheen. He’s been arrested for domestic violence at least six times and shot a woman. With a gun. And he’s still got a career.
Sean Penn tied Madonna to a chair and beat her. Fuck him. Fuck all of them.
Ringo too I’m pretty sure
Phil Spector, although he’s now in jail for killing a lady he beat on Ronnie Spector for years and still got into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Jim Morrison tried to set fire to his girlfriend
I could go on.
The point isn’t that the men on the left don’t deserve everything bad they have coming to them. The point is where the fuck is all the outrage when the men on the right do it. So many of our pop culture heroes are abusers and nobody seems to care.
Like, even if we’re gonna stick to the NFL, Ben Roethlisberger patiently sat out his six game suspension for rape and continued on with his career with little outrage.
If we’re really going to care now about ostracizing perpetrators of domestic violence, we got a lotta slack to pick up.
roman polanski drugged and raped a thirteen year old child and all your heroes signed a petition in support of him
the most important thing to me ever is bi kids knowing that it’s ok to be 10% attracted to women and 90% attracted to men or 10% attracted to men and 90% attracted to women and still feeling ok to identify as bi, and still feeling like their identity is valid, and still feeling like they can lead fulfilling lives with both (or other) genders. like that’s just so fricking important.
So Derek tweeted this tonight re the death of Shay on tonight’s “Chicago Fire”. My problem with this is that he didn’t kill one of the unexpected heroes. If he’d really wanted to throw things for a loop he wouldn’t have killed the second woman in two season (and the only queer character). He could have killed his beloved Casey or Severide. Now THAT would have been surprising. This to me is just a shitty move and is poor story telling. Killing off a beloved character can have a great impact on story telling. Killing off a beloved character who is a woman and gay when you have a plethora of straight men you could have killed off? I have a big problem with that. And to top it off, you bring in a new character to take her place who is virtually her clone. Replacing a beloved character with a look alike doesn’t make the story telling any better.
How can people see Emma Watson being verbally attacked online and threatened with hacked nudes being released by men because of her speech on gender equality and still think we don’t need feminism. It’s not women who make men out to be some evil creatures, you guys do that well enough on your own.
