Re: “Art and a-holes: When to say no, from Harvey Weinstein to XXXTentacion

There you go, you get your feminism kudo for the day for writing such a good feminist article. Oh wait, you did something in your past that I personally dislike? No kudos for you! Your art's worth is directly related to whether you're PC or not, and you sir have failed my arbitrary test!

Don't get me wrong, I think Young Dagger Dick (something else the rapper called himself, which I find absolutely silly) is a talentless hack who just so happened to figure out that prodding outrage from the morally vacuous and thin-skinned is rather profitable. But dismissing his work because of elements of his character is simply wrong. You said you liked his one song not based on the merits or degeneration of the singer's personality. It was 'sound' - musical qualities that happened to tickle your fancy. That's it. So you can like music for it in itself, but now you try to appease your Feminist taskmasters by shrinking up and rejecting music not based on its sound but rather based on whether the sound-maker offends someone's sensibilities? Come on, you know better than that.

Would you stop charging your phone because Edison, who pioneered Direct Current, used to steal and electrocute peoples' pets to slander Tesla's Alternating Current? Would you reject notions like, 'Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise' because the speaker Ben Franklin rather enjoyed French hookers while married? Are you going to throw your computer away because the myriad of software and hardware developers have all had varied lives with all manner of disagreeable sentiments and moments in them?

Are you beginning to see the folly of your line of thinking? If you accept this notion that you must judge a piece of art or work based on the personal character and unrelated actions of the maker, then you will have to throw literally everything you enjoy away because everyone is an asshole on some level or another. In Dagger Dick's case he's a massive asshole who hopefully gets to consider his craft behind bars should the allegations against him prove true. But if you like his ode to narcissism because it sounds good to you, then the only thing someone can accuse you of potentially is whether or not your taste in music is good, not that you are suddenly immoral for enjoying someone's work.

So i became very sad and lost hope in life because my doctor told me there was no way for me to get pregnant this really made life so hard for me and my friend told me about mama Janet from the Internet, how they have helped people with this similar problem that i was going through so i contacted them and explained them.she cast a reunite spell to bring back my husband and it was a miracle three days later my husband came back to me and apologized for all he has done and told me he is fully ready to support me in any thing i want,a few months later i got pregnant and gave birth to twins (boys) we are happy with ourselves.

Re: “Missoula joins ACLU's suit to block Montana's 'bathroom bill'

Mmm, can't let those pesky plebeians potentially vote for themselves their bathroom preferences. Democracy when its convenient, Totalitarianism when it isn't - anything to advance your founder's mission, eh ACLU?
