A feminist does not argue -- let alone link to -- naming the victims. Naomi does. She advocates that and was happy to encourage the outing of the women. One of whom has reportedly left Sweden due to the attacks.
I was raped. Naomi wasn't. She did help cover up some frat boys gang-rape, of course. She did that because she didn't want to be called a "lesbo." Naomi's not a feminist. She's a pill popper who, I understand, may lose custody of her kids. From what I've seen of her in the last weeks, that doesn't surprise me. She seems dangerously unbalanced. (And that's before you get into all her crazy talk about the government going through her tax records and breaking into her home to bug it and blah blah blah.)
I was raped. This isn't minor to me. It is to Naomi who seems to think -- and C.I. sets her straight int he snapshot, doesn't she -- Naomi seems to think that if a woman isn't able to say "no" then it's not rape. If her body says no, if she struggles, if she cries, that's not "no." Not to Naomi.
Stupid ass has never been raped.
Those of us who have survived it did not need Naomi's bulls**t this month. I've had it with that asshole.
Along with Black Sista, I'll give some link love to Katie Mulgrew at Inside Out.
Now for sexist Terry Gross (reminder, Ava, C.I. and I write our article 2 Sundays from now on how few women Terry booked) who featured Oscar nominated actress Sofia Copola for half the show and Stephen Dorff for the other half yesterday.
Stephen Dorff? The guy Becky dated on Roseanne (first Becky, during high school, Jimmy something)? That's really his fame. That and his relationship with Michael Stipe. Everything else he did was either supporting or a bomb (and some were both, like SFW). Stephen's in Sofia's latest film. She's an Oscar nominated director. She's directed three or four films now. And she's a real artist. But that's not enough, when you're a woman, to get the entire hour. It never is.
This is C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
