Violence Against Women




Actor Rose McGowan shared a Facebook post criticising the posters with the comment, “Fuck this shit”.

“There is a major problem when the men and women at 20th Century Fox think casual violence against women is the way to market a film,” she elaborated in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter.

“There is no context in the ad, just a woman getting strangled. The fact that no one flagged this is offensive and, frankly, stupid.”

She quoted a friend’s discussion of “the brutality of that hideous X-Men poster” with his nine-year-old daughter.

“Her words: ‘Dad, why is that monster man committing violence against a woman?’ This from a 9-year-old. If she can see it, why can’t Fox?”


I admit to being a fan of Rose McGowan.  However, that does not make me in any way biased toward her or her stance on this issue.  I do, in fact, agree with it 100%.  It is not an image that should be posted on billboards and other posters.  Yes, it is fictional, but the image you have on display for everyone to see is not fictional.  And they are glorifying it.  It is a sad commentary on where we are as a society in the 21st Century.

Just sayin...

the "only the strong survive" business in the upper right hand corner only makes it worse.

      A Chicago police officer became a temporary Florida Man in a vile manner


      A Chicago cop vacationing in Florida was arrested early yesterday after being caught urinating into an ice machine at a beachside bar, according to police who charged the visiting lawman with battery and disorderly conduct.

      According to police, an employee of the Jimmy B’s Beach Bar in St. Petersburg was “attempting to get ice from the ice machine” around 12:30 AM when he discovered Henry Capouch, 30, “‘pissing’ on the ice in the machine.”

      When the worker, Richard Klees, told Capouch to stop, the accused urinator cursed Klees and shoved him “a couple times,” according to an arrest affidavit. Capouch subsequently shoved a security guard, cops allege.

      Upon arriving at the bar, which is part of the Beachcomber resort, police found Capouch and his girlfriend on the nearby sand. Capouch, cops charge, “was actively resisting” and “not obeying lawful commands while being detained.”

      Only one engagement so far. I’m actually thinking they will have a longer engagement than most fundies. My guess is May or June 2023.

      Quote found in a magazine today: "They just got engaged but there are 200 pages left, so it's not looking good."  My daughter, on Jane Eyre

      If God didn't want us to move our body why did He give us muscles?

      I think moving to music is just a natural impulse.  You see toddlers bouncing around when they hear music and they do it even if the adults aren't moving.  To think it is somehow evil is just wrong.

      She was miserable at the retreat because she was pregnant and felt like crap, but she hadn’t announced yet, so she couldn’t say so.

      yeah, I remember this well. She had to go off and lie down and in all the talking heads she said repeatedly that it was morning sickness but the narrative still remains that she was just totally stuck up/miserable. She does seem quite sensitive and high emotion, also naturally introverted, and I think the fallout of her marriage to Josiah was far more overwhelming than she expected - but I have never read her the way other people do. I think she and Josiah are probably a decent match and it's a relief they've realised they can keep their privacy.

      If u use wedding registry finder and put Catherine Cox in the search hers is the first to show up in Illinois 

      That one only lists Catherine Cox and not Luke Arndt. Catherine Cox is probably a common name. I’m guessing it’s a different Catherine Cox. I would say the Catie Cox and Luke Arndt registry is most likely their registry.

      So..my son is getting married at the beginning of March and I tried on dresses today. I need to lose weight. I'm about 60-70 pounds overweight and I absolutely have to. I'm not one to post statuses but I'm doing everything I can to hold myself accountable. I'm sitting here wanting to stuff my face and I know this isn't the answer. I can do this. I will be okay. I'm going to make myself check in regularly. Whether or not anyone sees this, I am going to be posting.

      Is anyone here from Moore County, NC?  I hope they catch the domestic terrorists that shot up the power substations.  All to stop a drag show!  Throw the fuckers in jail.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!
