I have been fortunate enough to fly on several private jets as a co-op student. I would fly on private jets in a heartbeat if I had the money. Read more

This is slightly off-topic because there is a LOT to say about the Ks treatment of Jordyn, but was anyone else seriously disturbed (though not surprised, given the family’s intense dysfunction) that Tristan threatened to kill himself to get out of being accountable for his behavior, and that he apparently does this Read more

Eh, I’m team minding my own business when it comes to other people’s business (excluding legit abuse of course, which doesn’t apply here.) And whatever Jolie’s personal life is about, her humanitarian work is legit, and therefore so is her Time gig. Do better, Jezebel.

Wow haters gonna hate. Jezebel is the right name for this site. What evil women.  She has some very good and some bad movies but jealousy is harsh and ugly especially  in women.

I’m confused, why the snark? She’s been dedicated to humanitarian rights since she was 26, volunteering on the ground, connecting directly with refugees, speaking with public officials, writing about it it, raising public awareness, and otherwise using her star power (and millions) for the cause. Or is this just more Read more

The “Wellness” bullshit comes from DECADES of women being ignored by medical science. It comes from women who have been told that they’re “hysterical”. It comes from people who can’t afford healthcare.  Read more

There actually is a lot in her story that makes sense. For example, it is entirely possible that “drugs didn’t really work” AND that she became dependent on them (this happens to lots of people). Read more

Abuse is abuse. Nobody should be subjected to it, regardless of what choices they make. Freedom of safety of person is a basic human right. Robbins isn’t free from the consequences of breaking that trust, no matter how much you choose to pay him.

There was something about this guy that always creeped me out. I can’t imagine finding him motivational in any way. My first instinct every time I’ve seen him over the years on television was to change the channel immediately.

Right? “His sexual needs were his sexual needs.” I can’t even wrap my head around how a person can just say that when the “need” in question is sex with children. Children’s needs—safety, not being raped, not having a trusted adult manipulate and abuse them—greatly outweigh whatever sexual needs Jackson had.

Agreed. I think it’s evidence that celebrity trumps all for certain people. She more easily empathizes with a wealthy, famous monster than two human beings.

This is such a Debbie Downer post to throw out there, but here goes. My half-brother molested me. The relative who molested him also molested my dad. My dad and I are close, and we do 5Ks together, or partner up to do relay marathons. I am in my 40s, and my son and I visit my folks for a sleepover every now and then, Read more

Welp. That's it then. The worst take I've read on child sexual abuse.

MJ came on at the office last week, I gasped and had a visceral reaction. I asked the person controlling the play list that day if they could hit next: “sorry i´m still traumatized by the documentary” I said. Read more

I do believe he made the word “harm” do a LOT of work to obscure his misdeeds, but watching the Bashir documentary “Living With Michael Jackson,” what I am struck by is that he stringently claimed that his relationships with children were appropriate, innocent, and non-sexual in THE SAME INTERVIEW where he absolutely Read more

I’m struck my his insistence that he would never harm a child.  I do think he believes he never harmed these boys.  That they loved him, and physically responded to him.  Therefore, it wasn’t wrong.  It was only the small minded who couldn’t see that these were loving relationships.  I do think he believed that.  Its Read more
