  • #MeToo Founder: Supporting Biden, Despite His Assault, is a "Pragmatic" Decision

    I'm impressed with Alyssa Milano. This is the kind of convoluted series of rationalizations you would expect from a career Washington Post columnist, not a former sitcom actress who became famous for tweeting a hashtag. The fallacies are obvious. In defending her support for Biden, she keeps using women as a collective group. As if she and her decisions represent all women. There are the strawmen and the false choices, accompanied by a distortion of history.  As an activist, it can be very easy to develop a black and white view of the world: things are clearly wrong or clearly...

    Deadline ^ | 4/30/20 | Alyssa Milano
    As we started holding politicians and business leaders and celebrities around the world accountable for their actions, it was easy to sort things into their respective buckets: this is wrong, this is right. Holding people accountable for their actions was not only right, it was just. Except it’s not always so easy, and living in the gray areas is something we’re trying to figure out in the world of social media. But here’s something social media doesn’t afford us–nuance. The world is gray. And as uncomfortable as that makes people, gray is where the real change happens. Black and white...
  • Alyssa Milano: ‘The world is gray’ so I still support Joe Biden (but Brett Kavanaugh was guilty)

    Sometimes it’s hard not to resort to insults and this is one of those times. Alyssa Milano has written a piece for Deadline explaining why she still supports Joe Biden even though the evidence as it stands now points in the general direction of him being guilty of sexual assault. It has the not terribly original title “Living in the Gray as a Woman.” You can probably imagine without even reading it how this piece is going to attempt to let Milano recede into uncertainty. The person who championed “#BelieveWomen” is now tap-dancing around epistemic uncertainty. But actually, what she’s...

    [snip] Living in the Gray as a Woman When I sent the #MeToo tweet which helped spark a movement by amplifying the work of Tarana Burke in 2017, I didn’t know what it would bring. I knew I was in pain. I knew millions of women around the world were in pain. And I knew how lonely that pain was, how isolating the experience of being a victim of sexual assault was, and how bad it was for us as a nation and as a species. But then it took off, and a moment became a movement that had been...
  • ‘Believe All Women’ Is a Right-Wing Trap

    Joe Biden has been accused of sexual assault, and conservatives are having a field day, exultant that they’ve caught feminists in a new hypocrisy trap. A woman, with no corroboration beyond contemporaneous accounts, charges a powerful man with a decades-old crime? Hmm, doesn’t that sound mighty close to Christine Blasey Ford’s complaint against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh? Yet this time, many liberals who’ve championed the #MeToo movement seem skeptical? Gotcha! Tim Graham, executive editor of NewsBusters: “Where is the #MeToo movement on this story? What happened to their rigid ‘Believe All Women’ boilerplate?” Fox News host Tucker Carlson: “the infuriating,...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden is the presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee. He has received the endorsements of every major figure in the party, including former President Barack Obama, and 2016 Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. Biden was also endorsed by all his opponents in this year’s nomination battle, including U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT). Despite this unified support and his consistent lead in the polls over President Donald Trump, Biden is in serious trouble. His media appearances in the past few weeks have been embarrassing. Biden continues to make serious gaffes, looks confused and does not inspire any...

    In 2018, at the top of Supreme Court docket Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s affirmation struggle, previous Vice President Joe Biden designed headlines when he asserted that a woman’s community statements of sexual assault need to be presumed to be true. Biden had been dragged into the make any difference owing to similarities in between Kavanaugh’s confirmation struggle and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ 1991 affirmation hearings, all through which Biden was an integral determine. Biden was Senate Judiciary chairman at the time and had presided about the hearings, which famously highlighted a sexual assault allegation in opposition to Thomas by a...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign on Friday adamantly denied a newly surfaced allegation of sexual assault leveled by a former Senate staffer, calling the claim concerning the purported incident decades ago “false.” “Women have a right to tell their story, and reporters have an obligation to rigorously vet those claims. We encourage them to do so, because these accusations are false,” Kate Bedingfield, deputy campaign manager and communications director for the Biden campaign, said in a statement to Fox News. A former executive assistant to then-Senator Biden also challenged the account, calling it "clearly false." [cut] Reade said that...

    Collider ^ | 1 week ago | By Sydney Bucksbaum
    In 2019, we can’t afford to not get political, even with escapist entertainment. So even though Elizabeth Banks’ Charlie’s Angels reboot is a high-stakes, globe-trotting spy thriller comedy, she still made sure to send a message with extreme real-world ties within the story about female spies: “Believe women.” Letting female rage express itself was one of the most important aspects of the new installment of the Charlie’s Angels franchise, Banks, who directed, wrote and co-stars, tells Collider along with a small group of journalists. “One of the ingredients of this movie was supporting and believing women,” she says. “We literally...

    A woman named Vanessa Tyson, who is a fellow at Stanford University, says that a man who allegedly sexually assaulted her at the 2004 Democratic National Convention is now an office-holder about to get a “very big promotion,” according to a screenshot provided by a tipster. A friend of Tyson’s named Adria Scharf, based in Richmond, Virginia, shared the “heartbreaking” message, which Tyson wrote as a private post. Tyson is a fellow at California-based Stanford University and professor at California-based Scripps College, which means the alleged sexual assaulter must hold office on the East Coast. Tyson says her alleged attacker...

    Shrieking Leftist Harpies Turn #MeToo and #BelieveWomen, into #HimToo and #NotAllMen Recently a friend called me a Gladiatrix because I stand up to evil, corruption and wrongdoing – essentially, the corrupt political majority in California. I thanked her and told her that it takes one to know one. She’s a conservative radio talk show host who also exposes the radical left, and is a Gladiatrix in her own right. In stark contrast to being named a Gladiatrix, last week I wrote about the hysterical barking shrews, who attempted to destroy the character of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, nominated to the Supreme...
