Karen #2 then did what all Karens do — 1) she tried to change the narrative once she got called out and saw that no one was backing down from her, and 2) she then tried to play the victim.
😂🤣🤣😂🤣😂🤣 Fucking Karens!
…d high-profile men are still complaining about not knowing how to navigate issues like consent, and it’s only now coming out that Gates' “dalliances” were actually common knowledge within Microsoft and their foundation. The Daily Beast reported that ex-employees claim Melinda was humiliated about Bill’s infidelity.
It’s always common fucking knowledge when the man has a position of power with an organization, and it doesn’t have to be much power. I knew this Assistant head of an IT department who was dipping his fingers in all kinds if cookie jars in and out if his department. Told this 19 year old intern-”I own you.” Like WTF????? This went in for years. A marine vet -watch those fuckers…they be Trippin!!!!!
…l.” It’s not that I don’t get it — I recognize that most men do have a lot to learn about equality. Yet, when a man accumulates the sort of wealth and influence that Bill Gates has, and he’s supposed to be so smart, I can’t help but think there is some fundamental problem with him if he cannot see the disparities women face.
Well…Shannon Ashley you are smart AF!!! And in like a real people kinda way! I love that about your writing!
…al ramifications behind covering up, denying, or pretending such things aren’t a part of your past. Plus, it becomes a much dicier issue when you’re a public figure who’s done nothing to stop fabricated myths of impeccable character and marital success.
Well…I will say this in defense of Bill and Melinda Gate’s marriage. Marriage is a complicated thing that exists in a universe of two people. It’s never a really good idea to let people (and certainly not the fucking PUBLIC) inside if your marriage, but it’s also really unhealthy to keep others completely out. (Outsiders can see all kinds of fucked up things in the relationship that you cannot see.)
I imagine with any marriage involving public figures there is a huge financial incentive in projecting the image of the the BEST MARRIAGE EVER — but I imagine most marriages…
… Bill Gates could help stop predators like Jeffrey Epstein. Instead of rubbing shoulders with them. I wrote that piece because I was (and still am) so sick of people praising rich white men like Bill Gates or Elon Musk when we apply such a low bar to their character.
…o the point of looking for life lessons from them. It’s all a part of wealth and influence culture. People assume that those with more wealth inherently deserve it. That they’ve worked harder and are smarter than anyone else.
And the truth is something far more darker usually. They are far more cut-throat, vicious and ruthless than any sound-bitten, photo-shopped, gif, jpeg would ever be permitted to reveal…cause fangs and bloody teeth are not attractive and yet that’s what the incredibly wealthy MUST HAVE. Like its not even an OPTION not to have it. How do I know? I went to prep school.
Rich people cheat better. They can even hire people to do it for them…and they often do. That’s one of the secrets to BG’s success. …
In the end, I got my prescription filled and I began taking it this morning. I’m hopeful about seeing a difference since the past couple of months on the extended-release Adderall weren’t so great. But now I’m also left feeling like I can’t really recommend this particular company to anyone else for their own ADHD needs.
This experience sounds pretty fucked up…but i cant say that i am the least bit surprised. This is what happens when you have a system in place that ONLY cares about profits and not people; and that’s basically our healthcare system.
No one gives a fuck about you…at all.
“That’s right,” she said. “So, what are you gonna do about it?”
So…what are you gonna do about it? Buy you a white robe, with a hood and large wooden crosses? Some rope and get your hands bloody? I’m seriously curious. Cause this sounds like the inner thought process, were “normal” people turn themselves into hideous, vapid soulless ghouls, who live ugly, empty hate-filled lives, that aren’t worth living.
I know white people who think being called ‘racist’ is the Mark of Cain and some who couldn’t care less if someone accuses them of racism. The truth is somewhere in the middle because there is no way to be white in America and not be raci…
Yep…and that’s sone bullshit right there…I dont really understand how white people’s brains work. Everyone is racist, in some way. Most white people are RACIST AS FUCK! But when you point this out to them they lose THEIR MFING MINDS!!!!
Like, what’s that all about? Why are they mind-fucking the hell out of themselves???
I don’t get it white people…I do not get it.
I’m not proud that I recoiled when asked to imagine a Black Superman but it’s worth dwelling on. I’m not beating myself up but a little self-awareness has never hurt anybody, the worst it’s ever d…
You’re just white and male, and being exactly who you were acculturated to be.
Now the fact that you said, “wait a minute…let me think about this” shows that you’re trying to grow beyond the little stupid stifling idiot box they shoved you in. Good for you.
