A thread of our own- misogyny

All the fucking categories. Billionaire - Lives in Whitefish, techbro, hedge funder. Alleged to have assaulted many, many women. Alleged to have ordered security to kill people. Owns an international private security firm. Could not get security clearance with the gov because of abuse allegations. Is that billionaires thread still up?

Maybe a civil action isn’t the only way to go. But given he’s alleged to have bought off the local cops & government- maybe the Feds should be involved.

Yeah… soon enough a group like Time’s Up is going pop up in the music industry to give these creeps some real cover.

Of the ones I actually know some make sense. On the other hand, though, for instance one of the reason people I know hated last-season Daenerys was because she felt like a bad stereotype. To have her go from ruthless liberator to wanton killer in a moment without even any dialog seemed less like a culmination and more like saying “wait we forgot, bitches with power be cray”. That might not be the same worry for male characters but I’m not sure I’d consider that objection sexism per se.
