Like.. how the hell are 'social media icons' powerful enough to do that? I shed no tears over any of that, but imagine if it was the company you worked for, and you lost your job because some idiot on twitter posted something stupid.
Male privilege - the privilege of having to show up to work for everything you want in life, having very few excuses if you are lazy. If you are less than an excellent learner/life navigator, you also get the opportunity to work all the crappy jobs women do not want, and are more likely to die doing it. And even if you are excellent at a good job, you may get bumped if a woman is needed for diversity in your position. You also get to live with the potential of being drafted in a war.
White privilege - the privilege of being blamed for something you didn't do to make sure you are guilty and get to begin at the back of every starting line in life. You also get to give up an equal chance at education and any position in a job that requires diversity. On the bright side, you'll likely have no one following you around stores expecting you to shoplift. And there's an expectation that you might have decent credit. Oh, and people may acknowledge that you actual worked reasonably (or unreasonably) hard to get to where you are. So there's that.
Why is anyone surprised that a house of cards fell down when the wind changed direction?
My inner tinfoil hat says that tweet was orchestrated; just watch, in the next week, she'll tweet about some new social media platform, and it's active users will increase by three orders of magnitude overnight. And when it all comes to light, she'll either be a paid shill or own a small percentage.
These folks may be talentless and skanky, but they (or the people around them) know how to monetize fame. I'll give them credit for that, even if the fame is for accomplishing excatly nothing.
Waitaminute....that thing earlier about HPV and cancer...did anyone see the first line about Michael Douglas? Did he get throat cancer by giving oral sex, or did he get caner from someone doing it to him, but why then did it affect his throat? I'm confused!!!
Note to all astronauts: if you need to kill someone, do it right before a lengthy spaceflight. Not only can you not be apprehended, but your DNA from the crime scene won't match yours when you return. If only OJ had found a space shuttle instead of a bronco.
