2017: Everybody’s a Rapist Now

Posted on | December 5, 2017 | 1 Comment

Pop singer Melanie Martinez is a lesbian rapist, allegedly. Former star of That ’70s Show, actor Danny Masterson is a heterosexual rapist, allegedly. Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) today announced his retirement from Congress after he was accused of sexual harassment. Peter Martins, leader of the New York City Ballet, is being investigated for sexual harassment. Meanwhile in Alabama, polls indicate Roy Moore is in a dead-heat for next week’s Senate election. If everybody’s a rapist, after all, why should Alabama voters care about those accusations?

It’s a weird world we’ve entered. Feminists were angry that Trump beat Hillary, and their rage got turned into a crusade against sexual harassment. But most of the big names exposed as predators were liberals, and the general result seems to be more winning for Republicans. Are you guys tired of all this winning yet? Me neither.
