Sic ’em, John!

by allthoughtswork

Fuck you, Dustin. Your speech is proof of your acting ability, in your greatest role: Covering My Ass.

Every single fucking man brought to task on this topic has first denied his assholery to women.

If that doesn’t work, he accuses her of being crazy/confused/bent on attention/etc.

If that doesn’t work, he utters some slimey version of “That’s not how I remember it.”

If that doesn’t work, he confesses the crime but declares it was misconstrued, that she misinterpreted what he was really doing, what really happened.

If that doesn’t work, he offers a half-hearted politician’s apology that goes something like¬† “I’m sorry if you were offended by something I did” which shirks all culpability.

And if that doesn’t work, and the dirt his detectives have dug up on the poor girl is not compelling and the lawyers’ smear campaign hasn’t lodged serious enough doubt in the public’s mind about her, he bows out “gracefully” and moves on.

Meanwhile, there’s a woman out there (often many), violated and wondering when someone is going to look her straight in the eye and say: “It was wrong. It wasn’t your fault. You did NOT bring this on yourself. You deserve a good life.”

How do I know all this? Vagina.

I’ve been there. Over and over and over and over. And my crime? Inspiring somebody’s penis without my knowledge or consent.

Fuck you, Dustin.

Alabama Moore Supporters

by duncanr

multiple women have accused Roy Moore, the republican candidate in the Alabama election for the US Senate, of sexual assault when they were in their teens

predictably, Moore has denied the allegations, accusing all the women of lying – adopting the same defence used by Trump against the multiple women accusing him of sexual assault

while some republican politicians believe Moore’s accusers to be telling the truth and would prefer he stood aside and an alternative republican stand for office in his place, it seems from this video that some alabama voters are standing behind Moore . . .

Defending the Indefensible

by duncanr

not sure who’s the bigger arsehole here, Roy Moore, ‘a former state Supreme Court justice and the Republican nominee for a vacant Senate seat in Alabama, had a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl‘, or Alabama state auditor Jim Ziegler, who invoked the relationship between Mary and Joseph to defend the former judge’s sexual misdemeanours.

“Take the Bible. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus,

now, admittedly, I’m an atheist and no great . . .

This is just gross. I had no idea this underage crap was legal in every state. It’s bad enough when some drooping codger weds something young enough to be confused when you describe a record player to her but this is outrageous.

Buy the Girl Scout Cookies and leave it at that, you preevert, don’t marry the messenger.
