Some creators bashing Trump are even more hypocritical than those outside the medium
Remember, when Trump says his vile comments were just "locker-room banter," he means this is how he talks about women when they're not around.All this from a guy who advocated letting transgenders use women's public bathrooms, completely without any second thoughts on whether all sorts of perverts and sexual predators could exploit it for harassing/assaulting women, to say nothing of invading their privacy. And whose criticism of Eddie Berganza, if any, was muted at best. Needless to say, Busiek spoke out of two sides of his mouth, and I couldn't find any clues he ever publicly apologized for it.
He wasn’t in a locker room, after all. He was just in a space that didn’t have women in it at the moment. So he’s fine with saying this kind of shit anywhere, as long as women don’t hear it. The world is a locker room as far as he’s concerned.
And then, how he acts when women _are_ around...
And here's something to ponder: is such banter in private anything new? My father said there were guys who spoke crudely about women as far back as the 1950s; the kind of stuff you wouldn't hear on a sitcom like Father Knows Best or Leave it to Beaver. Who knows, even in remote times there were surely men in the Roman empire who spoke crassly. But to put this in more modern perspective, isn't it possible that if a rightie could speak crudely, so too could a leftie? Why do only conservatives matter? Say, what're the possibilities even the comics workplace was full of that kind of muck? Let's recall what former editor Valerie D'Orazio said about the DC editorial staff claiming "we need a rape" as they cobbled together their plans for Identity Crisis. Gee, doesn't Busiek find it disturbing that they could be so horrific there? Busiek went on to say:
So Pence says he's offended, "as a husband and father." If he wasn't a married parent, he wouldn't see anything wrong with Trump? I mean, I'm a husband and father too. And a son and a brother and a nephew and so on. But I don't need those as special credentials.Oh really? Then here's a challenging query for him: is he offended as a human being by Bill Clinton's rape of Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Wiley? Not to mention his violation of Gennifer Flowers and Paula Jones? Is he offended by Hillary Clinton's antagonizing the victims? Is he even offended by Camille Cosby's siding with her now disgraced husband Bill against his many victims? Have you seen and read Broaddrick's painful memories of what happened, Kurt? From the transcript:
The idea that we're offended because Trump said bad things about people like those in our families smacks of property. "I'm offended because I own some women and Trump has devalued them." That's not how it works, asshole.
Does that mean if you don't have anyone LGBTQ in your family, it would be okay for Trump to degrade them? For Pence, who has done a lot of degrading of LGBTQ (and women) in his career, clearly, yes.
How about Mexicans? Muslims? Blacks? Gotta have some of them under your male aegis or it doesn't matter?
What Trump said was offensive, not just if we have daughters or wives. It was offensive to women, offensive to men. It was just plain foul. But hey, luckily Pence is praying for better....while he campaigns to make Trump the most powerful man in the world. That'll help.
Me, I'm offended as a human being. And I'm voting for better.
BROADDRICK: And then as he points over my shoulder, he grabs me and turns me to him. And that was a shock. And I tried to push him away. And I only weighed about 120 pounds at that time. He was a very large man. And I kept telling him, “No. I don’t want this at all.” [...]That isn't disgusting, Busiek? How are Trump's comments newsworthy, but not Bill Clinton's physical abuses or even Hillary's tolerance for his behavior? Slate admits that Broaddrick's accusations against Bill are credible, even as they try to absolve Hillary of any blame. Busiek's own ignorance and support for forcing women to accept alleged transgenders into the same bathroom is offensive to women and embarrassing to men. He got into an argument on Twitter later, and said:
And he grabbed me again, very forcefully. And started biting on my top lip. And this was extremely painful. I thought he was going to bite my lip off. And that’s when he pushed me back onto the bed.
KLEIN: He bit you at the top of your lip. He pushed you onto the bed. And then what happened?
BROADDRICK: It’s been so long and it is just so hard to go into. I need to stop.
I was completely dressed. I had a skirt and a blouse. He tore the waist of my skirt. And then he ripped my pantyhose. And he raped me. It was very vicious. I was just pinned down… I did not know what to do. I was so frightened. I was only 35 at the time. And it was horrible. I just wanted it to be over with. So he would go away.
KLEIN: He got up?
BROADDRICK: No, he held me down for a long time. And then he did it again. I was so ready for him to leave me alone. When he started raping me again. And it was very brief… And he did get up and he straightened himself. And my mouth was bleeding and it was hurting. And he just straightens himself and goes to the door.
KLEIN: With you still on the bed?
BROADDRICK: Yes, crying. He straightens himself and he goes to the door. And puts on his sunglasses. And tells me to get some ice on that on my list. And goes out the door.
.@EvasVox Well, in case you’re confused, I’m offended by your unwarranted insult, and your claim that I slammed all conservative Christians.— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) October 9, 2016
What about any and all women who could take offense at his support for allowing the opposite sex into the other's bathroom at the expense of their dignity? Please, don't bore us.
Gail Simone also had at least a few crummy tweets to blurt out:
Donald Trump looked more like a hostage at gunpoint than actual hostages at gunpoint.— GARGOYLE SIMONE (@GailSimone) October 8, 2016
And Bill Clinton doesn't look like a disgrace for his past antics with women?
"THESE ARE TOTALLY MY WORDS NOT WORDS I AM BEING FORCED TO SAY AND I RESPECT WOMEN EVEN THE REAL DOGG-O'S."— GARGOYLE SIMONE (@GailSimone) October 8, 2016
Yet Clinton's irrelevant. And all this from a Whoopi Goldberg-style apologist who denied that any women could possibly exist who find it objectionable that men should be allowed to jeopardize their privacy in a bathroom, tried lecturing and overall acted pretty loathsome about everything, never even apologizing after I presented proof that there are women, silent majority or not, who disapprove, as the collapsed fortunes of Target department stores should make clear. Then, in reply to somebody noting how there's rap lyrics out there with far worse, she said:
An adult said this. https://t.co/sun3YSsryw— GARGOYLE SIMONE (@GailSimone) October 9, 2016
And a mental adolescent said that.
Who can blame a man for the super-fun, just-us-guys talk of assault in their tender days of youth, when they are only 60?— GARGOYLE SIMONE (@GailSimone) October 9, 2016
Again, all this coming from a hypocrite who supported moves that could endanger women's safety in public restrooms. She then replies to Jon Voigt with:
Hey, anyone know what happened to Jon Voight's soul? https://t.co/Kf4gL84HXy— GARGOYLE SIMONE (@GailSimone) October 9, 2016
What happened to hers? She may not have always been this way, but now that she is, it sure puts her in a bad light, and, as I've said before, does not make her worthy of writing books that were handled better by folks like Chuck Dixon. If liberal men are ever voicing dirty language, doesn't that concern her? Next up is Dan Slott:
Republicans making un-endorsing statements:— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) October 8, 2016
Yes, your wives & daughters shouldn't hear it.
Your husbands & sons shouldn't hear it either.
And nobody need hear the babbling of a man who wrote a crude little fanfic story degrading Mary Jane Watson in the Inferior Doctor Octopus. Anybody who does scripting that lowbrow has no business weighing in on the issues.
Trump's slogan is about bringing America back to a high point— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) October 10, 2016
The world is watching
His actions have made us look like we're at our lowest
That could easily be said about Slott's awful scriptwriting. And when Trump made a tongue-in-cheek comment that his "team of deplorables" will be "taking over" his account, Slott said:
*fingers crossed*— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) October 10, 2016
please be White Supremacists
please be White Supremacists
please be White Supremacists... https://t.co/021BqUfZFS
So, he actually wants evil people to be in charge? Sigh. Spoken like a true SJW alright.
Watching how Trump has run his campaign, it's easy to understand his 6 bankruptcies-- and losing close to a billion dollars in just 1 year.— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) October 10, 2016
Some comic publishers are losing plenty of money too, all because of the ultra-leftists going bananas on them. Next up is Gerry Conway, who can often be relied upon to deliver some of the worst leftist commentary around:
That's because Bill Clinton's own antics are what troubles us here, and Hillary's apparent attempts to cover them up.
But he doesn't think Bill's a disgrace for what he did to at least 4 women, does he? And then, when a questionable reporter for CNN says Breitbart paid for Broaddrick's travel expenses and Trump's campaign claimed the same, he says:
Isn't that the same thing? https://t.co/gQzbxpGkYF— Gerry Conway (@gerryconway) October 10, 2016
Is he insulting the poor woman? That's what his stupid little tweet there sounds like, and it only makes Conway look really bad.
Now, there may be something to think about in the overall takeaway from this particular subject, and it's that guys young and old should consider whether vulgar discussion of sexual issues among themselves is appropriate at all. But the above examples are hardly qualified to comment, what with their previous support for "diversifying" the bathrooms at the expense of women and children's safety. And at least 2 of them haven't even mentioned the names of the women accusing the Clintons of wronging them. As they've come to prove, they're certainly not people fangirls need bother to try most of their products, nor fanboys, for that matter. They haven't apologized for some of their questionable positions of recent, and if not, that's all the more reason to yawn at their dopey little comments.
