Every theme has been done to death, there’s nothing new under the sun. This show isn’t gonna change the world but it’s highly entertaining.

Yeah, this isn’t “What if superheroes were actually bad”; this is “Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely; Super powered people would be corrupt by default, and this is our interpretation of what a ‘real’ Superhero would look like”. Read more

This hits me HARD.  I am so sorry that this young woman had this pain all these days and this was the only way she felt she could move forward.  I hope she is now at peace.

I had a realization last week upon reading the deposition of a former friend and high level elected official (husband of a friend) that I was Read more

I feel like we’ve been trying to teach Jezebel staff this point for a decade now. They should have a fucking post-it note on the wall, at least.

It took me a long time to deal with my assault in any meaningful way and if I am truthful with myself, I still have a long way to go yet. Even 25+ years later, I can count the number of people who know both my name and what happened on one hand, with fingers left over. Fear, shame, the possibility of having to Read more

Thank you for this. My uncle died by suicide in 2010, largely due to a violent sexual assault he suffered as a child. I hang on to hope there can be some way to help survivors heal from their trauma.

I am deeply grateful that I have not been assaulted, but when I was sexually harassed at work, the reporting process was more invasive, disruptive, upsetting, traumatic, hostile, and confusing than the instance of harassment I was reporting by an order of magnitude I still find difficult to wrap my head around. In the Read more

Part of this is that the victim doesn’t want to relive the trauma by discussing it again and again. This is a multi-faceted issue. One, if the victim’s pain is reopened too much, that’s not healthy for them and they shouldn’t be forced to do it. Two, however, is that it adds to the difficulty of addressing the issue Read more

One of the most depressing things about this is how many girls experience(d) this and we’ll never even know.

PLEASE include either the National Suicide Prevention Hotline or some other relevant resource when posting articles that discuss suicide or self harm. It is genuinely not that hard. It seems that Jezebel has fully committed to not including this information on recent articles addressing suicide. Read more

Does it really matter? I don’t understand all the people trying to make comparisons to anything else. The point here is that this thing is brutal (confirmed), spreads more easily than the flu (confirmed), and SO DAMNED EASY TO PREVENT (confirmed, over and over again.) Comparisons are just a distraction and excuse for Read more

She retweeted someone who listed him amongst several other people and she in no one said anything specific about him. But keep twisted yourself to believe that his actions are justified.

She wondered why so many rappers wouldn’t date dark skinned black women. He took it as an attack against his light skinned wife’s blackness and attacked her. Read more

Yeah she’s probably full of shit, but he’s been a celebrity for decades. He should have a way thicker skin by now. If he just clapped back once or twice it wouldn’t even be a story, but he didn’t just call her out. He went in hard, with a hell of a lot of tweets to a random person. He really should have other things Read more
