Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, February 02, 2018

Wednesday evening, on the fourth floor of the Union Square Barnes & Noble in Manhattan, a diverse crowd waited for Rose McGowan to arrive, read passages from her new memoir, "Brave," and answer questions.

After this tender moment, a woman shot up from her seat to confront McGowan about comments made on RuPaul's "What's the Tee?" podcast in July 2017, which recently resurfaced on social media. The mood took a sharp turn.

"I have a suggestion. Talk about what you said on RuPaul. Trans women are dying and you said that we, as trans women, are not like regular women. We get raped more often. We go through domestic violence more often. There was a trans woman killed here a few blocks [away]. I have been followed home –." The woman was then interrupted by Rose.

"Hold on. So am I. We are the same. My point was, we are the same. There's an entire show called ID channel, a network, dedicated to women getting abused, murdered, sexualized, violated, and you're a part of that, too, sister. It's the same," McGowan retorted.

"You do nothing for them. Trans women are in men's prisons. And what have you done for them?" she asked.

"What have you done for women?" McGowan said.

How about commenting on the substance of the article instead of attacking the poster?

It's a two way street. You have to start on intellectual footing if you want an intellectual response deary.

BTW Your thread is garbage Boaz. If you want to be taken seriously you need to stop attacking groups of people you know nothing about. Oh and what's your hang up with trans people anyways???

You first, you brainless bigot. The article you posted isn't about people trying to "out victim each other. It is about people with real struggles trying, messily and with difficulty to raise awareness of those struggles, and to hammer the various particular struggles of victimized groups into something like a united front against the toxic culture that victimizes them. Sometimes that involves some shouting and sometimes it involves some conflict. The fact that idiots like you post incidents like this online as something for your fellow "alphas" to giggle at just shows how damaged the culture is (and how damaged you are) and how much it needs just this sort of struggle for awareness.

I hope Boaz has his all guns loaded.

The feces is about to hit the fan.

the Liberals are coming! the Liberals are coming!

And they are coming for YOU Boaz!

Don't write a trolling headline if you want serious responses.

Nothing on what?

Do you even know what you're saying by putting up inflammatory headlines on random stories? It looks like you're just spoiling for a fight. Then you play victim.

Maybe they're right to say Trump is just a mirror of the conservative zeitgeist.

I think the problem Boaz has with two liberals trying to out-victim each other is Boaz is the real victim.

Or maybe it's Trump who's the real victim, I'm not sure.

Why exactly did you post this, Boaz?

"Maybe they're right to say Trump is just a mirror of the conservative zeitgeist."

Bingo.
He understands Republicans better than the GOP does.
He is the giant ------- they all want to be, but don't have the free reign that comes from having millions of dollars for lawyers.

Trump is basically Ayn Rand's Superman.
