You may know Janet Bloomfield, aka JudgyBitch, as the social media director for the MRA website A Voice for Men. After reading this article from her about the Bill Cosby rape allegations, I say without hesitation that she is an absolutely horrible human being. I’ve never liked terms like “sister punisher,” but it surely applies to her. I rarely get shocked these days by how vile someone can be, but this one left my jaw agape in disbelief, especially because it’s written by a woman.
Let me just state up front that I am not claiming innocence for Bill Cosby. Did he drug and rape a bunch of women? I don’t know, and neither does anybody else except for Bill himself. What I want to do today is talk about a few facts that should give everybody pause when it comes to judging him.
According to celebritynetworth.com, Bill Cosby is worth $400 million, and yes, it’s pertinent. That’s four hundred million incentives right there.
And yet only a couple of the (now) 20 women who have accused him of sexual assault have sued him. And this just proves my point when I wrote about Cosby’s attorney’s statement last week. Cosby’s attorney says that the fact that these women haven’t sued him is evidence that their allegations are false; now Bloomfield says (and the attorney would no doubt say as well) that the fact that Cosby is rich and could be sued is evidence that their allegations are false. Heads Cosby wins, tails his accusers lose.
Women who claim they were raped by Cosby also openly admit they were whoring for fame, trying to ride the man’s coattails into a star-studded future. Does that give Cosby the right to rape them? Of course not, but it sure as hell casts a suspicious light on the innocent maidens’ motives to make their claims.
Well yes, of course. Any young actress who auditioned or even met with Cosby to discuss possible projects was obviously just “whoring for fame.” And I’m sure that goes for any young male actor who ever auditioned? Oh right, this only applies to women. Every young woman who tries to get a part in any movie or TV show is a fame whore; young men who do the same are obviously not, amirite? And if a young man accused a powerful person in the entertainment industry of exploiting or victimizing them, they’d surely be described as “whoring for fame” and that fact would be used to undermine their credibility. Right? Right? Yeah, I didn’t think so.
The current witch-hunt in the media is a stark reminder that no matter how rich, how powerful, how well connected, or how critically acclaimed a man might be, even an accusation of rape can tear his life apart and destroy him. Proof? What proof? The word of a woman can destroy a man’s life with no evidence of any kind required. Rape shield laws should apply to the accused, not the accuser. The accuser will go on to garner sympathy, appropriate pharmaceuticals, and a speaking engagement where she can discuss her terrible trauma, and the accused will be left with a shattered life even if all the allegations are proven to be outright lies…
Here is what needs to change: since allegations of sexual assault and rape carry such devastating penalties for the men accused of those crimes, it should be a crime to name a man period. Victims should file criminal charges and the accused should be granted anonymity until convicted. We need court-ordered and enforced anonymity for men accused of rape. For women accused of rape too. Without a conviction, without evidence, without proof, no one gets to call anyone else a rapist.
The feminist media has made it absolutely clear that they will override any considerations of due process or justice when it comes to slandering and libelling men accused of rape. They will abuse the power they have and that is unacceptable. If these individuals refuse to show restraint and chose their words carefully?
I say, gag the bitches.
Yes, rape victims are “bitches” who need to be “gagged.” I hope you’ll all join me in shouting a big “fuck you” to Janet Bloomfield. She’s right, of course, that false rape allegations really can ruin someone’s life. But it’s also true that false rape allegations are pretty damn rare and this is largely because virtually every woman who accuses someone of rape get metaphorically raped again by a criminal justice system that doesn’t take them seriously, by defense attorneys who claim that she couldn’t have been raped because she had a couple drinks earlier, by troglodytes who wonder what she was wearing as if that is in any way relevant. This is doubly true of a woman who accuses a rich and powerful man of raping her. Life is far more hellish for the millions of women who have actually been raped than it is for the relatively small number of men who have been falsely accused of it.
Seriously, I don’t know how this woman lives with herself. Is the admiration of misogynist assholes like Paul Elam really worth it?
