This feels more like TMZ than I’d like to see here, if I’m being honest.
Right - its someone claiming they are being abused, monetarily drained, and legally controlled by their family due to a disability and the article reads like a Jan and Marsha fight...
Came here to say this, too. Jezebel is once again talking out of both sides of their mouth. You don’t get to claim to support Britney, and then go back to the same gossip and trash-talk that is literally the poison running through her entire life. Do better.
Thank you for this. I’m in consistently unimpressed with just how tasteless and awful Dirt bag posts can be, especially on such matters. This shit is especially awful.
I understand that this is dirtbag, so the flippant tone is expected, but it seems oddly callous and weird to me that you’re treating a situation involving alleged guardianship abuse as a sibling rivalry. If Britney Spears’ testimony is anything to go by, she holds her entire family responsible for the abuse she has… Read more
THISSSSSS. OMG, this x10. It’s a class war for god’s sake.
The guy who speculated about the size of his infant daughter’s future breasts? The guy who posed on a bed with his pubescent daughter and later said if she wasn’t his daughter they’d be dating? The dude who in public, while running for president, said that the thing he had most in common with his adult daughter was… Read more
Same. It is never okay for someone to abuse another person, but when it is a woman setting up another girl/woman for abuse...it feels like such a more profound breach of trust for some reason. A wolf in sheep’s clothing. I realize this is not the reality. Women can be abusers too. But it feels wicked to me. Girls… Read more
I nearly got recruited (or rather, shangaied) for prostitution jobs numerous times, when I was in my 20s. The recruiters were ALWAYS women. One of them was the mother of a friend, she had known me since I was 15. Her daughter did drugs, the dealer she bought her drugs from was also a pimp. I was 21 and on the verge of… Read more
Agreed. I mean, growing up, I was always told that if something happened to me (separated from my mom, lost) to find a WOMAN to help me. Why? Because as a culture we assume that women are safe spaces; they’re naturally nurturing, and would protect a vulnerable child if faced with the opportunity. Which is what makes… Read more
It might sound hollow coming from a random, anonymous internet person, but I am so sorry this happened to you. I can’t imagine the thought process of a woman grooming girls or young women so that they can be abused. That is so heinous and evil. As a woman, it makes me feel sick to think another woman would use the… Read more
It’s some of the most insidious shit. A woman was part of my grooming when I was abused and it was a huge part of why I felt safe to trust some really horrible people.
Listen, the fashion show and the catalog are for straight men. The underwear is made to please men too, not for a woman’s practicality and comfort. If the company doesn’t get that, then they’re super duper dumb. Casting a trans woman in the fashion show is not going to get more women to watch. I mean, maybe it will a… Read more
I highly recommend listening to CBS’s Uncover podcast series on NXIVM! I’ve binged about five episodes this weekend alone.
