I’ve never read any of her work, but she wrote and performed a mission in Zombies, Run! and it was awkward, to put it mildly.
Always a dicey proposition to meet your favorite artists.
Yeah, I’ve made my peace with the fact that, while she wrote one book that I greatly love, the rest of her is complicated to put it mildly. She’s got a problematic track record of understanding contemporary feminist issues, despite The Handmaid’s Tale, and she definitely has a tendency toward the sort of old person… Read more
Clearly, she doesn’t know that it was in fact Supertramp’s 1979 album Breakfast In America that inspired 9/11.
Look, I enjoy her books. But I have met her in person and it was ... very off-putting. She made inappropriate comments (like old person fuddy-duddyness, not targeted aggression) about my friend being both married to a woman and a mom, and she was so full of herself (I get it, rightly so in most ways) that it was like… Read more
Dear Margaret, things crashed into things before Star Wars. You are sounding kooky in a bad way. 9/11 postulating will never be OK, imho.
Good. He honestly deserves more time, 6 years was ridiculous, but i’m glad that it was extended.
Yeah - I’d be surprised they granted him the grounds to appeal, but, then, again, he’s a white Olympian cis-gender male.
Good! If you read the case, he clearly killed her intentionally.
I stand corrected in the sense that some of his victims are women of colour - many of them were not. Regardless, the reputation of one man of colour does not deserve veneration nor should the colour of his skin protect him from scandal when he has drugged and raped so many women. Read more
This saddens me. I’m not black but Bill Cosby is a hero to me. He always represented so much good. It’s hard to believe he was doing this. It’s wrong but nothing about this makes me happy. The victims deserve justice but damn....At least Mr Rogers was a pretty great guy. Bill Cosby ......I just never saw this coming.
What planet are you from? Be honest.
The justice system in America is designed to benefit people with wealth. Nothing will happen to Cosby because we love money more than justice. Luckily we do have millions of poor people to convict of crimes and lock away to pay for the burden of the rich.
I want him convicted for his crimes, but I’m concerned that his team’s efforts to undermine the jurors’ impartiality have been successful.
I usually measure mine by how much I’m not judging someone else’s situation and life choices on the internet. But we’re all different.
He made Ann Coulter happen, well, happen as much as she was ever going to. I remember to loathe him over this every time I see one of her bleached wannabes spewing alt-Right shit on Fox or in the WhiteHouse like Kellyanne. Makes feel like this guy except the c-word is far too good for him.
So Maher can’t see past his own personal fee-fees because boycotts were mean to him once? Color me not even the little bit surprised. At least half of his shitty, hypocritical takes can probably be traced back to the cancellation of Politically Incorrect. FFS Get over, Bill. You’re doing just fine now.
