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
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
This is especially true when she’s been very vocal about her post-partum depression, which by her accounts, was pretty intense.
I remember back when Television Without Pity existed, the guy who played her dad on Heroes wrote a brief series of articles for the site. One was about her and her real father, who was every bit as bad as Lohan’s or Megan Markel’s, and entitled “The Media Wants To Destroy Young Women.” Read more
Agreed. Framing her as a bad mother is really cruel. And ironically, not seeing her kid and leaving her to be raised by her ex and his mother is probably the best thing she could do as a mother, rather than keeping her with her and exposing her to her abusive relationship and putting her at risk.
One of the main reasons victims of abuse don’t leave is not some psychological prison but because of the very real fact that violence escalates when they leave or press charges. Most women murdered by intimate partners are murdered immediately following them ending the relationship. It’s not just up to her to leave,… Read more
I don’t think it’s fair to assume she’s not economically dependant on him at this point. Perhaps not in the same way as a single mother with less than a high school education living in rural West Virginia, but abusers want to control every aspect of your life. As far as I know she hasn’t done much work recently, so I… Read more
What kills me is how these assholes get away with it time and time again because even if they’re arrested and charged they can’t be convicted unless there are witnesses but the victim rarely testifies because she’s too scared and/or in love with her abuser, and friends and family can only do so much. And this is a… Read more
“I’m a grown-ass man” squeaks 24 year old man-child on gimmicky dating show.
The “bi” prefix does imply “two”, but you could easily define bisexuality as “attraction to people of my same gender and people not of my gender”. For example, I identify as bisexual and my fiance is non-binary. I think whether people claim “bi” or “pan” is sometimes just down to personal preference/what feels right.
Yeah lol, I can’t objectively say I’m attracted to people with gender identities that don’t adhere to the binary because I’ve never met anybody identifying outside of it. I’ve met a couple trans people, but both very solidly identified in a binary way, I’ve met a couple identifying as sapios that were insufferable… Read more
