Well on top of everything else he was "illegal inside smoking" so he has got to go.

I'm shocked that this hasn't happened earlier with Simon after all these years.

Did I read that right that Timberlake issued a public apology for holding his co-stars had in public?

That seems unnecessary.

The apology was to his wife, not to the public.

With that said, I don’t know why he couldn’t have just apologized to her in private. I’m guessing the apology was a PR stunt.

Probably because the humiliation was public, these people are driven by ego, and because the marriage itself might be a PR thing in the first place.

What a prick.

If anyone had JK Rowling finally outting herself as a TERF on their bingo card. Congratulations I guess.

Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist, although the term's use has widened to include transphobes in general.

To elaborate further, feminists who assert that trans women aren't real women and should not be counted as women by the law have been a growing factor in British and American feminism for some years now, but they seem particularly well entrenched in Great Britain. It gets difficult to parse where the feminism stops and where the right wing co-opting of feminist language begins when they start accusing trans women of being male predators out to infiltrate women's safe spaces for sinister ends. See also: the panic over "bathroom bills" here in the States. Rowling's most recent show of support for a prominent British transphobe appears to be part of a long pattern for her.

Yeah I was surprised TERFs were such a thing. Like I thought they were much smaller in number in feminist circles but I guess not.

Without wanting to derail too much when we've already got an underutilized LGBT politics thread, this is something that had been on the rise because the political right has seized upon transphobia as the latest hill to fight on. Jezebel.com's Esther Wang reported in May on an alliance between American TERFs and the misogynist religious right, observing the irony that it's a deal with the enemy for both parties if they're sincere about their respective stated principles.

Was TERF a thing before South Park's Mr. Garrison's sex change episode?

Well that all seems pretty reasonable really but.....unfortunately I will still need to see her never work again.

My Christmas wish is for one day to have a video where Spacey stokes a fire while O.J. comments on the latest NFL scandal.

Thinking about it, nothing ever came of that schlock journo shitstirring about Jeff Goldblum, did it?

No, but I think Goldblum's been laying low since then as well, hasn't he? He seems like the rare individual who's smart enough to know that trying to get the final word on Twitter is several different kinds of foolish.
