Heard joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he's a sex pest. Says life just doesn't give him enough. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where he no longer can harass women without consequences. Doctor says, "Treatment is simple. Great singer Plácido is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says, "But doctor...I am Plácido.

I don't think it's an outlandish idea that claiming men are being treated unfairly and an insistence on using "females" to refer to women tend to be signifiers of a particular kind of dude. The accusation still deserves to be taken seriously

It felt like a response at odds to the one we'd see if it were a woman coming out against yet another male predator.

And if you look at that sentence you might notice that without thinking about it i said "woman" and then "male". People do that switch without being MRAs. But do please carry on attacking the victim in this story.

Just because misogyny is so deeply engrained that we do it without thinking doesn’t make it less misogynistic. They are Women, not Females.

If you had said "yet another male" instead of "yet another male predator" your pwn might make sense.

Two hundred pages of examples of the sexual assault culture in the entertainment industry and the reasons popular and powerful people get away with it. And then as soon as a story comes out about a hugely prominent and popular woman in entertainment the victim is knee-jerk dismissed, and villainised on the thinnest of grounds.

Do you really not see why that is a problem? That maybe your own prejudices may need to be reflected on? Because some of you look like massive loving hypocrites right now. And enablers.

Like remember when Asia Argento was at the absolute forefront of the initial #MeToo Pointe Break and then was outed like 6 months later as having groomed her child-co-star from pre-pubescence? In many ways that was the most important scandal for me, not because she was a woman, but because it was the clearest case of how deeply ingrained and deep the toxicity and corruption go.

You can literally go up on a stage in front of thousands of people screaming "we gotta STOP this!" while you have naked pictures of a 17 year old kid you've been grooming for a decade on your phone.

Katy Perry also televised her own nervous breakdown and her therapeutic revival and strikes me as exactly the kind of person who just doesn't her the word "No"

It is 100% possible that the victim in the Katy Perry story has lovely views about women and is also the victim of sexual assault, and "how lovely a person the victim is" isn't grounds to excuse the assaulter.

I don't think anyone who punches Richard Spencer today should go to jail, but if I found out he was sexually abused as a child I'd very much be in favor of whoever did that going to jail.

I absolutely hate the way every picture they are using of Katy Perry for these accusations articles makes her look so sad and forlorned, like they are tying to make her appear wild and vulnerable, instead of just a weird and spoiled person.

I just don’t think it’s possible to make a million dollars at age 19-20 and maintain any semblance of humanity.
