Margaret Atwood faces feminist backlash on social media over #MeToo

She raised the possibility that the answer could leave women divided. “In times of extremes, extremists win. Their ideology becomes a religion, anyone who doesn’t puppet their views is seen as an apostate, a heretic or a traitor, and moderates in the middle are annihilated.”

…She likened the affair to the Salem witch trials, in that guilt was assumed of those who were accused. This idea of guilt by accusation had at times been used to usher in a better world or justify new forms of oppression, she wrote. “But understandable and temporary vigilante justice can morph into a culturally solidified lynch-mob habit, in which the available mode of justice is thrown out the window, and extralegal power structures are put into place and maintained.”

Twenty years ago, in Moscow, Matt Taibbi was a misogynist asshole—and possibly worse

The piece skewers Taibbi for his sexual abuse of women in Russia. My beef with Taibbi is strictly about him taking it upon himself to propagandize about 9/11 for money, which I will have to go into at a later time. He was wrong, of course, and a fucking asshole propped up by the for-profit press to lie and spin the 9/11 cover-up.

‘I Love You, Daddy’ trailer faces backlash amid Harvey Weinstein scandal

Reading the complaints and then actually watching the trailer leaves me in a state of cognitive dissonance.

 

The movie is quite tepid and seems to resemble Woody Allen’s stylistic trappings. It could be an amusing satire, but the Weinstein situation has made the world lose its mind, and people are freaking out.

Odd that film people are criticizing the “timing” when it takes a year or two to bring something to the screen. For fuck’s sake. Looks like I need to check this one out.
