Feminists Worldwide Owned By Man Wondering When #MeToo Will Condemn The Taliban

Checkmate, us.

If there is one rightwing argument I never get tired of, it's "Why are you complaining about stuff in the country where you actually live instead of criticizing countries where things are worse for [insert minority here]." Mostly I like the dual implication that we are ungrateful and that they would be willing to get in on the fight for social justice were it simply being used as a cudgel against another country.

This argument is not, as it turns out, unique to the United States. This week, the Wiltshire Gazette & Herald out of the UK published a short and sweet letter to the editor from reader Matthew Laverack (a prolific writer of letters-to-the-editor it turns out), asking "When Will #MeToo End Its Silence On The Taliban?"

OnlyFans Decides It Likes Money After All

Score one for sex work!

OnlyFans has dodged a puritanical bullet. Yesterday, a week after its ban on "explicit" sexual content, it announced it would reverse course and sent out this statement via Twitter:

While personal trainers, aspiring musicians, and celebrities like Cardi B and Bella Thorne have joined as creators, porn is by far the most popular category on the site, with a large share of its two million content creators selling sexy pictures or videos of themselves. This safe and legal way for sex workers to make money was what made OnlyFans so ubiquitous that they were given a shout out by Beyoncé on Meghan Thee Stallion's "Savage" remix.

After Axios wrote a piece about how OnlyFans couldn't secure outside investors, despite being on track to have a net revenue of $1.2 billion this year — expected to double to $2.5 billion in 2022 — OnlyFans announced on August 19 that it would no longer host pornography starting in October. This came as a huge blow to many of OnlyFans' two million creators and 130 million registered users across the world. OnlyFans creator Meredith Jacqueline told The Daily Beast:

It's just mind-boggling. It's like, y'all hate porn that much that you're willing to give up money? Because if it were me, I like money more than I hate a lot of things.

Adding to the confusion and sense of betrayal was OnlyFans sending internal messages that were vague or seemed misleading about their intentions for sex workers.

Andrew Cuomo, GET THE FUCK OUT!

And take your staff of disgusting enablers with you.

Who the hell gropes a state trooper? How far up your own ass do you have to be to think that's an acceptable way for anyone, much less the highest public official in the state of New York, to behave? And then to send the COVID vaccine czar out to make sure county executives won't publicly call for your resignation once the news of your vile behavior starts to leak out?

Dirrrrrrrrrty.

This morning, New York state Attorney General Letitia James held a press conference that should end Governor Andrew Cuomo's career. Flanked by former acting head of the Southern District of New York Joon Kim and employment lawyer Anne L. Clark, James intoned somberly, "I believe these women."

From the podium and in a simultaneously released report, the team laid out allegations by 11 current and former state employees detailing a pattern of sexual touching and comments by the governor, covered up and abetted by staff in his Executive Chamber.

Anti-Vaxxers Denied Opportunity To Find True Love Among The Equally Deluded

Anti-vaxx dating app Unjected kicked out of the Apple store.

Bad news for people who were hoping for a little romance before dying of COVID: the Apple store gave the boot to anti-vaxx dating app "Unjected" this weekend.

The app, which users on the Google Play site have described as "useless," "painfully glitchy," "terrible," and "cold dogshit" -- and that's from people who agree with their mission! -- first came out in May of this year. While the "Tinder for anti-vaxxers" debuted as a dating site, it also promotes businesses where one can easily catch COVID-19, a social feed and "a database where users can list their blood types."

It's not clear if that last one is some kind of anti-vaxxer "thing" or if they just recognize that their behavior may lead to a need for a blood transfusion at some point, as "spontaneous bleeding" is an occasional complication of COVID.
