About That Louis CK Movie

[Content Note: Rape culture.]

Louis C.K. is a very clever person. He is also a predator. This whole film is an obvious provocation — and I don't understand how anyone who's ever heard even a whisper about his reputation for assaulting female colleagues can fail to see that he is testing how far he can go, how much he can confess, without censure.

I am disgusted. Not just at him. At everyone who participated in this fuckery.
