There's probably a root in sexism, but it's just kind of a formula. The sister gets dumped on, the brother is dumb, the dad is an overweight guy complaining all the time and the mother is neurotic and overreacts to everything. Lazy tropes.

Thread WaPo: Baton Rouge police officer crashed Corvette speeding at 94 MPH, killing a baby, officer won't be charged with anything, not even with speeding
I've always said that criminal acts involving police should always be handled by a state or better, federal prosecutor. Make the law. There's just too much conflict of interest to expect a prosecutor to charge a police officer knowing he has to work with police on other cases t o get convictions, which are the sole currency for prosecutors to advance.

Thread James Franco accused of sexual exploitation or abuse by five women
Sorry for being late on this reply, I didn't see it till now. I was wrong in the way that I argued those points. It never came from a place of trying to dismantle any of those movements. And I never thought that the movement itself wasn't inclusive. It was an argument that didn't need to be made. On the contrary I want to encourage everyone who wants to come forward to use the means that speaks most to them. Folks pointed out to me my wrongs and I conceded the point. Of course the post where I admit I screwed up makes the top of the page...

I don't think there's a central component. Me Too, Believe Women, and Times Up kind of all intersect and curl around each other. If you are ready to speak out I think you should just use which one speaks most to you.

Thread James Franco accused of sexual exploitation or abuse by five women
Yep. One of the most important aspects of this movement is that it give support for people to come forward because you get the sense that once someone names one of these people abusing their power, many more will feel empowered to say yeah he did that to me too. And so often that has been the case. These people don't just do this to one person.

Thread James Franco accused of sexual exploitation or abuse by five women
You're right, and Kirblar is right. Though my intention was to give support for Times Up, it doesn't have to be one or the other and though it might seem like it I really don't mean to conflate what women have had to deal with historically with modern power dynamics and their abuses. I apologize if people thought I was trying to muddy the waters. Edit: agree with Cyclonesweep's post as well.

Thread James Franco accused of sexual exploitation or abuse by five women
That's absolutely not my intention and the comparison is unfair because the alllivesmatter people aren't being treated as if their lives don't matter whereas women and men are being victimized by women and men. I get that it's an inclusive movement but I'm saying that I prefer Times Up in part because it gives agency to everyone. No one has to take my position to an unintended extreme to discuss it. All I'm saying is that it's helpful to have positions like Times Up to take away any confusion that men and women have that they might not have the support they need depending on who they're accusing.

Thread James Franco accused of sexual exploitation or abuse by five women
Just given the sheer numbers difference it should be easier to focus on the support rather than the negativity. But so many of us have that fault where we can have 9 people say supportive things and one person say something nasty and we focus on the nasty. I'd say there's worth in engaging people who believe differently but at the end of the day it's okay to just think, "well that person's wrong and I have these folks watching my back".

Thread James Franco accused of sexual exploitation or abuse by five women
I can't help but feel like people are reminded of that terrible Rolling Stones article when people discuss false reports. God what a setback those people caused. It's very important for women to feel comfortable and supported when they come forward and I know there's a fear that men will co opt the movement in order to downplay it but I just feel like we should make all accusers feel like they can come forward regardless of their gender or that of the person they're accusing. That's why I've been very pleased with Time's Up so far. They want people to be able to stand up against those in power, whether it's power in employment, power in an industry, or power in a relationship. Time's Up wants women and men to have the agency to say that it's not acceptable to be treated that way.

Thread James Franco accused of sexual exploitation or abuse by five women
As much as I understand and support the reasoning behind believe women, I feel like, as a call to arms for a movement it's not fitting. For one thing it completely ignores Spacey and his accusers. And are we meant to believe Mariah Carey over her bodyguard? Who do you believe in the case of Melanie Martinez and Timothy Heller. The last thing I want is for ill intentioned men to co opt the movement so they can downplay it, but I think it's better to say Support Accusers rather than Believe Women.

Thread James Franco accused of sexual exploitation or abuse by five women
I'm not looking for loopholes. It's why I like the Times Up movement. It gives agency for all victims to stand up and speak out. I understand your concern. I don't want to dismantle the movement in any way but there are barriers to everyone who feel like their voices aren't being heard and I prefer a more inclusive means of support, that's all. If a woman or man is being abused or assaulted by a woman I don't think they should feel any confusion about whether it's okay for them to come forward.

So nice of Usatoday to dedicate half their article space to Random Twitter User espousing the benefits of these hunts. There's always two arguments these people make. 1). This was a problem animal that trampled fences or what not so hunting them was actually a good thing. It's ridiculously easy for local leaders to find a reason to label an animal, sometimes after it's already been killed, as a "problem" individual. 2). The money they pay for hunting the animals goes to conservation efforts so these are actually a good thing. If only there were a way to give money without having to kill animals over it.

My mother worked in nursing homes for over 16 years and they're some of the penny pinchiest low quality facilities around. Most are corporate owned and only see the residents as bodies in a bed. They encourage people to put medical equipment in their rooms that they don't require just so they can charge more for it and they do things like count office workers as floor aides even though they don't actually help the perpetually short staffed employees who in turn hurt themselves trying to do too much in order not to get written up by supervisors for not getting work done while waiting for help that never comes. Occasionally you can find a small private facility that is decent but it's very rare.

That's not even what the phrase is supposed to mean. When people say things like "God damn you" they're not literally calling on God to damn you to eternal hell, it's just an expression. The admonition against taking the Lord's name in vain was originally telling people not to invoke God falsely. So more like "God told me we should invade Iraq," or "God is on our side" for things that God never gave a position about like abortion or gun control. A literal "God damn you" like from Planet of the Apes that calls on God to act for you would also qualify.

Thread Why is Lois Lane so worthless in the DCEU?
A bit beside your point but I feel like she's been miscast the last few iterations. I really like Amy Adams but I wasn't really a fan of her Lois aside from the strictly reporter stuff. Kate Bosworth was a total whiff on the character imo. Honestly, Lois in Smallville was the last really good Lois (aside from animation) in my opinion. And a lot of that was because they did embrace her strengths instead of making her a damsel in distress, though there was enough of that too.

A lot of mutants don't really get much benefit from their mutation. So I think they justify their anti-mutant bigotry because the other superpowered people they see are either humans or villains whereas mutants might just be people you see at their jobs, selling hot dogs or telemarketing or trying to work in an office. So it's easier to sow the idea that mutants are taking over.
