Why? She asks…..
Barbara Bowman asks “WHY?” her complaints of revered comic Bill Cosby’s alleged rape fell on deaf ears. (Sigh.) Let me give an illustration. Let’s say it’s 1862 down South, and old man white guy is commanding orders. Old man white guy says to his wife (imagine deep Southern drawl): “Woman…tell them there N*****rs that they best get on out there and tend to the crops.” His wife humbly obliges thinking nothing of it. Then January 1 1863 comes along and legislation is passed that frees black people. Now, “slavery” is no longer a viable economic tool for the white MAN according to the law. What was once, “N****rs” “tending to the crops” is now illegal and immoral. Now let’s take it back to the good ol’ 80’s (BEFORE Sinead O’Conner ripped up the photo of the Pope on SNL – Sinead got in such trouble for that – and now today, POST priest rape scandal, intelligent people UNDERSTAND WHY she did it, BEFORE Jerry Sandusky, Ariel Castro, Mamma June’s Creep Pedophile Significant Other, etc.) before ALL of that, when an entitled, sperm dumping, irresponsible, loser decided he was going to “have a little fun” (ie. sticking his penis in WHATEVER hole HE deemed “fun”) HE had ZERO consequences (ie. never gets pregnant a day in his sperm dumping life, is glorified for “getting” the girl, ‘boys will be boys’, etc.) so the rape victim is thrown under the bus, not taken seriously, and often times called “slut”, “psycho”, “gold digger” etc. so that the rapist NEVER has to be held accountable for his actions EVER. And when you throw some money and power towards the rapist, that’s when things get even more serious. (BTW…it wasn’t called “rape” it was called “what was she wearing and why was she there that slut”) It’s called SYSTEMIC MISOGYNY and it sucks. To Ms. Bowman, I say this…Prostate Cancer is on the rise (smile) and these creepy rapists will get a nice dose of karma in ways that our human brains can’t even imagine. And THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to Hannibal Buress And so it is. Amen.
