Little article from New York Times:
In light of a story accusing Aziz Ansari of sexual misconduct that went viral, our podcast “The Daily” would like to hear from women and men who are reconsidering past sexual encounters in the midst of the #MeToo movement.
“The Daily” wants to hear your story of a specific, complicated sexual experience that you now find yourself re-evaluating. Tell us what happened and why you’re reconsidering it.
If you’re able, call us at 646-598-6012 and leave a voicemail with your full name and your story. You can also record a message on your phone’s voice memo app, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that we may use your voice message in an episode of The Daily podcast. A Times reporter or editor may contact you to get more information.
Well now, that’s just fucking perfect isn’t it? It’s about time! I’m ecstatic that they are doing this. I will definitely be calling in. Now just hold on, “The Daily”. I first need to compile a list of people a) I don’t like b) political opponents c) embarrassing encounters and dates that I now regret, and d) oh there was that incident when an old college buddy of mine grabbed my ass as a joke. I laughed because I thought it was funny back then and I hugged him and said “hey sexy.” At that time I thought it was funny and a total hoot. But now that I’m older I’m afraid people will accuse me of being gay. So I want to reclassify this as sexual assault. #metoo #mefuckingtoo
I’ll write more about how this originally noble movement against sexual assault that has been itself assaulted by extremists who have now turned it into a fucking joke when I have some more time. For now, I just wanted to write this short blurb expressing my disgust.
