Chanel Miller interviewed on The Daily Show

Originally published at:


Not meant as my usual flippant type of response but for some reason I have a problem having the connection between Chanel Miller and the event in her life staying connected in my brain.

I see her name and I think “She is important “ and I cannot remember why until I click through or read more.


The Force is strong in this one. I deplore what happened to this lady, but dam, she is awesome & taking the World by storm!


The title of Miller’s book reminded me instantly of this track, one of the greatest defiant protest records ever laid down:


I hope there’s no problem remembering that

Brock Turner is a convicted rapist

on three felony counts.

This needs to follow him like a string of dirty toilet paper.


Yeah no problem remembering that.

It is just an oddity of my brain. There is a family I know with 3 daughters. It took me a year or two to get my brain to output that. All possible pairs of the three my brain dealt with. However I would always be convinced they had two children. The set of three made me stop and think - wait I thought they only had two kids.


These gray things we dwell in or have our thoughts in anyway have funny quirks at times.

Sure, but she is way more important than somebody that the Textbook Definition of Rape raped behind a dumpster. She is someone who really took control of this whole situation. I am beyond impressed with her.


Not detracting from Chanel at all. Let’s be clear on that.

However, if #metoo is going to have sustainability, we need to keep both victims and perpetratrors in our collective consciousness, right?
