    also, in an era where the word misogynist gets thrown around in every other sentence, shouldn't there be a word for unabashed man hating like this?

    Misandry is the word you're looking.

    I know too many words.

    How is this an example of misandry?

    Don't ask me, I just provided the word! It's not my fault all these pesky, rarely used words get stuck in my brain!

    I thought the article made a couple of very good points, by the way.

    Did you read the Jezebel article? Every sentence was "male creeps" "male narcissists" "he's not the first man to do so" What part of it wasn't misandry? Again, I have no idea if the guy in question is guilty or not. But this type of characterization of all men as self-pitying creeps clearly has nothing to do with the merits of the individual case. It's purely hatred based on one's gender. Flip the wording around and pretend a man wrote this about women. Can you honestly say that you wouldn't be outraged?

    The article was referring to male celebrities so no, not all men. (Jesus, did I really have to write that out?)

    And it's on JEZEBEL, for Christ sake.

    And is clearly sarcastic.

    Oh, man. I just saw the last photo. He looks 19.

    Amanda Palmer, of course, manage to have a polite debate on Twitter about this topic. The more I read the critiques of Jian's actual words, the more I don't buy his story here. @themethatyouknow , imagine a good friend of yours writing exactly what he wrote. It just doesn't seem to jibe. Jury is still out for me, but CBC cutting him loose doesn't help to show his innocence.

    Pretty sure Matthew Broderick jumped in a time machine immediately after Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and is now posing as clean-shaven Kevin Smith.

    I clearly stated in BOTH posts I wrote that I was not in any way commenting on his guilt or innocence.

    So the total is now eight women who have spoken out about Jian Ghomeshi?

    Yikes.

    I've always been in the 'if the woman gets to be anonymous then the man should too' camp but cases like this and various similar cases in the UK recently, do suggest that these people will never stop what they're doing unless women hear of someone else coming forward and then add their story if they have had the same experiences.

    I've never heard of that camp. Would we do this for those accused of other non-sexual crimes?
