It’s victim shaming. If you were an abuse victim, would you enjoy it if strangers repeated baseless privacy-invading gossip about you and speculated about whether you “like it rough”? Words mean things ffs
Nah it’s not just interpretation, you chose to bring up unverified tabloid rumors and speculate about her sex life rather than respect her privacy and show support. The whole article is about why it’s not ok to use domestic abuse victims’ lives as gossip, and you chose to do that in the comment section (and repeat an… Read more
Thank you! I can’t believe I had to scroll through this much grotesque gossip and “was she asking for it?” speculation to find a comment that displayed a shred of regard for her dignity. We are really using a woman-friendly space to repeat bullshit tabloid rumors and discuss whether an abuse victim “likes it rough”??
That was a CDAN blind gossip item, and I absolutely HATE that people now repeat it like it’s a known fact. That site is well known for making up outrageous bullshit about celebrities, and (absent any credible evidence) I’d really love it if we didn’t engage in baseless salacious speculation about whether a domestic… Read more
It’s especially cruel since she’s been open about her brutal struggles with post-partum depression, which it appears she never fully recovered from. Leaving the child with her father might’ve been the best possible decision if she wasn’t mentally fit to parent her or give her a stable home life. Would she really be a… Read more
Thank you! Amie Harwick and similar cases should put the stupid “why don’t victims just leave?” narrative to rest once and for all. Domestic abuse victims aren’t stupid. They have access to the same 24/7 news cycle we all do and are well aware their chances of being murdered skyrocket if they try to leave, and our… Read more
Woooow, I can’t imagine being a big fan of someone and then having a catty throwaway comment I made featured in a documentary about how mean people made them need a mental health break. I would be mortified and feel like a total asshole! It’s just a reminder to be thoughtful in how we talk about people, even when we… Read more
I’m so sorry that happened to you. Choking is one of the most popular forms of violence inflicted by abusers because it 1) causes panic and fear of death and 2) rarely leaves bruising or physical evidence. And now they also have the legal defense of “well lots of chicks are into that anyway” to fall back on, so I… Read more
Yup. Sounds like the mainstreaming of BDSM in pop culture just created yet another excuse to discount domestic violence victims. New language, same story.
I’m sorry but this defense is bullshit. If your “rough sex” is so rough you KILLED SOMEONE, you are so bad at sex that you pose a danger to all future partners and should be locked up anyway. Despite what Hollywood movies would have you believe, it is actually very difficult to kill another able-bodied adult human… Read more
I mean, IGGY FUCKING AZALEA getting a nomination tells you everything you need to know about the legitimacy of this award show. A bullfrog high on ketamine could turn out better “raps” than that fraud.
THIS. If you refuse to take on the effort of cooking anything, at least bring booze. Grocery store chips and salsa just say “I’m too lazy to cook and too cheap to buy booze.”
Please correct the spelling of Saoirse Ronan’s name. Thanks!
“My Name is Dolemite” was an absolute gem. Eddie Murphy is one of the most brilliant comedians still working, and Cosby...well, not much to say there.
I am a fan of normalizing any and all fertility options that women choose to live the lives they want to lead, but I want to point out two big issues with egg freezing: 1) pregnancy success rates are only around 18-20%, and 2) more and more employers are pushing it on female employees to avoid paying maternity… Read more
He clearly doesn’t respect his wife or kids either if this is how he represents their family in public on live TV.
Intent only matters legally if he fell and his hand accidentally touched her butt. But the video evidence shows he clearly intended to touch her butt, he just didn’t intend to be held accountable for it.
