And fuck that guy. DEFINITELY FUCK THAT GUY. But he doesn’t get all four corners of my mind today.
I can’t imagine how brave his victims must have had to make themselves in order to come forward with these allegations. And it rips me up that we all keep expecting this, demanding this, and #metoo-ing as humans expose their darkest moments of victimhood so that we can finally FINALLY disavow monsters who have shown us for their entire careers that they are monsters.
I don’t want to put too fine a point on it, but HEY PLANET EARTH, WHY DO YOU THINK IT’S OK TO SUPPORT THESE ASSHOLES IN THE FIRST PLACE?
Support candidates of color. Support women. Support queer, trans, and nonbinary folk. Support people who don’t support assholes, and my all means, give them your time, your vote, your money, and your mouthpiece.
Because we deserve better than this. Because we are in a vortex of totally fucked and the only way out is to stop and stand up and say, “wait a minute, fuck rape culture and ableism and racism and transphobia and homophobia and xenophobia, and fuck R*y M**re in particular.”
