I’ve been to a 12 step based in patient rehab program and have been required to continue to partake in the program as a condition of my probation, so I’ve seen a lot of others in the program and seen how they’ve been affected in addition to my own experiences. I’ve seen a lot of people succeed in the program, often…

This is some bullshit victim blaming. The whole point is - these are the options POC have, literally. Rock understands there’s a Wanda Sykes best black friend category, but there’s also an Asian graphic designer or accountant or Latino helper or service category. There are no good options for POC performers. I’m glad…

I don’t know if you’re trolling, but I’ll answer this seriously. First off, where did you get that information? Secondly, “Asians” is a huge and diverse population. I understand that East Asians and Indians are comparatively better off economically than other Asians, especially since the majority of Americans from…

Chris Rock is very funny, but has a history of misogyny, homophobia, and flat-out racism. Guy made a movie called Good Hair, about how black hair is perceived as shitty, then wonders why Hollywood doesn’t want to cast more black roles. Then the buck-toothed fuck shits on little children.

It should be said that Margot is an institution in East Nashville, and it doesn’t surprise me one bit that that was her reaction. Just to add another layer to…

So you’re working at the front desk of a hotel where a fairly famous female guest is staying. Some rando comes up and asks what room she’s staying in and requests the room next to hers. This raises no red flags and you have the bell hop escort the strange creepy man to his requested room.

I was reading a legal expert interview at SI.com and he said the same thing. By bringing it to trial, they’re getting exposed for whatever culpability they had in this incident, and even worse, the “you got more famous after you were psychologically violated” defense is a massive PR hit that is self-inflicted. And as…

I’ve been told that at boarding schools (at least in the mid 90s when the people who told me were there) it was considered, er, de rigeur for girls to get together in groups of four or five in a junior or senior girl’s room and watch gay porn on mute after hours. It just sounds so gruesomely joyless and mechanistic…
