Well, she doesn't have a day job, and she's not tweeting into the void. She has a huge following, and everytime she tweets something about Dumbledore being gay or whatever, she gets millions of people falling all over themselves to tell her how great she is. That's a real dopamine hit. She tweets to maintain her celebrity and elicit praise from her fans.

I don't have much emotional attachment to Harry Potter left, but it's still a bummer to see JK Rowling being transphobic because seriously gently caress off with that poo poo.

Glad Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and a ton of other actors are cool though.

Unlimited wealth breaks your brain. I am dead certain that if I became a billionaire, I would eventually spend my days locked in a room with a loaded gun next to me.

I dunno I mean she's famous enough that she probably gets recognized everywhere, and rich enough to fear for her safety. Plus, what should she be doing? Travel? Now?

Likewise Eddie Redmayne who has also spoken out against her comments. It's pretty telling that she has been retweeting people who have called Radcliffe's comments 'mysoginistic'. Her whole argument is essentially the same old 'women will be sexually assaulted in bathrooms by DEVIANTS' one that these people always like to use. And the oh so brave feminist she mentions has equated trans to blackface as well as decrying it all as a mental illness.

And as sorry as I am that she suffered sexual assault, the timing of it gives off real Kevin Spacey coming out vibes.

There must be a category for those people who scramble for damage control so aggressively their response includes them proclaiming to the world something horrible and/or intensely personal and therefore twitter needs to be less mean to them.

Its a cynical attempt to flip the conversation absolutely and to make her immune from criticism. It really does nothing to explain her views because her views were the same poo poo evangelicals used to claim about gay people: They're mentally ill, they're coming for your children, it's just a phase really.

Hello, I'd like to humiliate some hussies and I'm in a hurry.


The one thing I see in Rowling's "essay", and any other celebrities who endlessly tweet: the absolute, desperate, clawing-at-the-walls need to win the argument, to never take the L, to self-reflect, or admit that there's more than one way to look at things. I have no idea what pushes people like her or Graham Linehan or whoever else to constantly go "no, no, no...you just don't understand. Let me, your humble creator of things lay it out for you."

Obviously that's a symptom of Twitter itself, but it's more pathetic when it's someone who could literally be doing ANYTHING else.

I see you choosing that other route. How dare you.

So it's hard to find a tweet not being deleted right now but apparently people are accusing comedian Chris D'elia of repeatedly seeking underage fans for sexual conduct.

It's a lot easier to find the clip of him on his podcast this year talking about how nobody in Hollywood is a pedophile, you conspiracy types are crazy! Funny, that.

I stayed up last night following the Díelia bomb because they JUST KEPT LANDING. It really popped off for me personally because I have friends in the Toronto comedy scene and basically half the women in that scene had a version of the same basic story.

Anyways this woman began aggregating as many stories about DíElia as she could last night, I went to bed around 3 AM and she had like 35 or so different women in her thread.

https://twitter.com/sheratesdogs/status/1273215111012814850?s=21

He seems way more of a ďCosbyĒ situation, there are stories from 10 years ago and there are stories from barely a month ago, but not a single one of these attacks happened to someone older than 19. A stark similarity to Cosby is DíElia is very well know for his sobriety. He has literally never had a drink or drug in his entire life, so that fact that well over 2/3 of these stories revolve around blacked out teenagers is even more sinister.

https://twitter.com/sheratesdogs/status/1273057240350552066?s=21

Sorry if this is TMI but many stories contain details relating to their age, and his making them verbally confirm their ages repeatedly during intercourse. He isnít just targeting underage women, he is celebrating underage women.

This is a loving INSANE takedown. We havenít seen one this bad in a little while. If Iím being honest that fact that he just got a lot of money and accolades for playing a creepy entertainer who drugs and rapes his fans is truly next level psycho poo poo

drat that sucks. I like Ellisí comics a lot, but I outgrew Gaiman after college. Honesty surprised to hear Gaiman acted that way, heís basically a model ally these days for women and trans folk and LGBT folks and seems very happily married so Iíll hope thatís all behind him.

I mean, there's a very, very thin line between being an outright creep and predator and being somebody in an "open relationship" (as that article mentions) where you sleep with women who are undoubtedly way younger. I'd say Gaiman's more the latter, which is still sleazy but if they're consenting adults I guess who cares? No idea what Ellis' deal is though, I don't really know anything about the guy.

I used to be online friends with a young woman who was in Ellis's circle and he was very eager to befriend pretty young women, and I got a huge creep vibe off the whole thing.

I was friends with a girl back in the AOL DC chat room days and she was befriended by him. She eventually became one of his delphi forums moderators and I believe met him in person at a few cons. Lost track of her ages ago but I know she had a really bad falling out with him and I'm now curious about the details but can probably guess.

There's been a few articles about their open relationship being more his idea than something she was 100% okay with. She asked him to be monogamous while she was pregnant with their kid but that only lasted a month or so before he told her he wasn't going to do it anymore.

Eek. Well the facade may be dropping soon then, this could turn out to be a case of Neil Gaiman's public image being a "brand" he's established over the years so he can keep his cult of personality going and bed his fangirls. I mean it happens loving constantly so nothing would surprise me at this point I guess.
