Wilkerson and his mother were bystanders who stepped in to save the woman who jumped the barrier.
Calling someone Permit Patty does not make a punchline out of the victims like Chapelle’s jokes about “15 is old enough to know if you want to get peed on” which I think was the point Damon was making.
You can’t tell a baby they’re being rude. You CAN tell a 3 year old they are.
YES. I was just thinking that I would 100x rather have a crying baby than blaring an Elmo cartoon on your iPad for the whole plane to hear. I just want people to observe the rules of polite society on an airplane. Crying babies aren’t really on the list of things that make for a miserable flight for me.
I would much prefer the parents of 3-13 year olds to march onto a plane wearing a sandwich board that reads “I’m aware of my responsibility to make sure my child does not kick your seat, throw food, or otherwise disturb you. Please let me know if I’m failing”
I am 37 and childless but I have to say I agree so far. They scare us in our 20s that we won’t get as much attention from men. But I’m really enjoying less and less attention. And I’m really enjoying not worrying about my body’s perfection. I exercise because it feels good. I eat healthy because it feels good and I…
Victims’ accusations must be treated seriously and investigated to
fullest extent, but accusations should never be automatically believed.
Actually, it’s kind of the exact opposite--this shows how very difficult it is to convincingly fake an attack, and how easily the stories of people lying about being assaulted crumble under investigation. Nobody is sincerely equating “believe victims” with “don’t investigate crimes”; that’s a straw man used by rape…
It sounds like Average Anna has a pretty good time until she gets married and has kids. That was obviously her mistake.
I felt that relief when I became a bit chubby, and it’s why I don’t care to go back to being my version of skinny. I’m just going to dress in my old lady clothes and keep my extra 40 pounds and be happy that I can go about my day without gross old men staring at me.
I didn’t hold a party when I became invisible to men, but I should have.
He’s gonna be making YouTube videos with Jordan Peterson in like six months.
You’re not interesting because you jerked off in front of women for decades. Why does that mean I have to listen to you? Why does that make you interesting. You didn’t get your career ruined by a vindictive creep. You spent 20 years harassing your colleagues and threatening them with retaliation and now I gotta…
He knows the liberal progressive audiences that were once his bread and butter will never fully take him back no matter how well he performed contrition, so he swings the pendulum the other way. It shouldn’t the least bit surprising, I’ve yet to see a repeat abuser opt for self-reflection and accountability over…
“I didn’t do it. Jay didn’t do it. Jane [Raskin] didn’t do it. Marty [Raskin] didn’t do it. Pat [Robertson] didn’t do it. We didn’t do it.”
The pearl-clutching that crawls out when the alt-right seeks a tit-for-tat takedown is hilarious and sad. Their is no actual belief behind their poutrage, it is just for show.
It reads like a trying-to-be-edgy/intellectual version of Leslie Knope Headlines.
