Oh man, I’m really surprised so many people haven’t heard about this?
You can read more about it here (warning, pretty graphic details of sexual assault), but basically he has been accused of raping a 17 year old boy back in the 90s. If these allegations prove to be true, he’s a scummy, scummy dirtbag asshole piece of trash that deserves to be locked up.
It’s just… wow, I expected Tumblr to be ALL over this. This is a community that brings light to a lot of horrible things and abuses of power. Raping an underage teen is, uh, kind of in the category. When I first read the story, I expected it to be smeared all over this site, but like I’ve said, I’ve only seen TWO posts.
Is it because Bryan Singer is a well loved director? Because people are excited for the new X-Men movie? I’m confused. Are people uncomfortable talking about it because they fear wanting to see an anticipated film will be equated with condoning child abuse?
We’ll have to see how this all plays out, but again, I’m surprised that I haven’t heard a PEEP about this on Tumblr.
(FYI, The Usual Suspects is one of my favourite films. I want to watch the new X-Men movie because hundreds of people have poured love and effort into it, not just one (potential) scumbag. This sort of discussion is a very difficult and uncomfortable one to have, but it’s worth having. )
PS: Whatever the truth may be, I am disgusted by all of the victim blaming I’ve seen. Viciously attacking the character of someone speaking out about abuse only makes others feel uncomfortable to do so. I don’t fucking care if you want to watch X-Men without feeling guilty, DON’T VICTIM BLAME.
Favorite Characters - Vladimir & Sophie
god Sophia had a double chin and bingo wings and a booty like a shelf and she was still hot as fuck. and Anastasia was hot. and the empress was hot. All the ladies were pretty but totally different sizes and ages and things were wonderful.
Sophie wasn’t just on screen to be fat and funny. She was depicted as actually DESIRABLE. I was a little stick of a child when this movie came out and that definitely effected my views of beauty. As a much thicker adult it still means a lot to me now.
^ SO MUCH THIS
It made me SO happy to see a lady who wasn’t super skinny still being portrayed as being sexy and desirable…
We need more movies like this…with characters like this, who aren’t just treated like walking punchlines because of their bodies…
