I’m horribly sorry for what happened to Brendan and it is in no way a joke.

I know it’s very hard for you to see from your perspective but they joke about the appearance of women who are raped and they joke about mutilations done to female rape/murder victims.

They joke about all of it. From Brendan’s violation to anybody else’s. Of course it is difficult for a man to come forth as he and Terry Crews did. Of course what people say and do in these situations is hideously wrong.

I’m glad you pointed out this problem but I just want you to understand: they joke about every single thing with females too.

Right now on Twitter somebody has publically stated Jamie Foxx slapped her in the face with his d**k. Only Shaun King is backing the accuser. All the rest are laughing bc it is funny to them.

A famous male author did the same to me as was done to Brendan Fraser by the agent and also slapped my face and added gruesome insults (“With an a** like hers you just know she wants to be spanked!”). It too was at a very public event. While nobody laughed at me — on that one — nobody cared or cares. You will even see the guy commenting guilelessly on my writing here on @Medium . Again, I am very sorry for what happened to Brendan and think the mockery is wrong. Women aren’t “allowed” anything.

We have to take what we can get and hold as fast as we can.
