Today in Rape Culture

[Content Note: Sexual assault; hostility to consent; war on agency.]

Meanwhile, on Twitter... 1. Roy Moore and His Party.

2. Louis CK and His Enablers.

I'm relieved the New York Times wrote about Louis CK's history of predation. That said, the Times is going easy on him. Even the promotional tweet is soft: "crossed a line into sexual misconduct." The story itself focuses on his apology calls, and casts his agent as an equal or even greater villain than he is.

He is a cunning predator, and this sort of soft-pedaling is exactly why he's gotten away with it as long as he has.
