That’s simply not what it was. And I’m well bloody aware of went on during G***te. If that’s the story you’re sticking to, fair enough, but at no point do I say that these people aren’t dangerous. The opposite.

Daily reminder: ‘Respecting the opinions’ of those who would see your friends and neighbors deported and shot does not make you a good liberal. It makes you a dangerously deluded fool. Tolerating intolerance does not make you a better person. It makes you complicit.

If you’ve actual evidence on that front I hope you’re planning to do more with it than bother women online- but I know the activists who are working tirelessly to bring him to justice and I trust in their competence. I only wish I could help them more.

And while we’re on the subject, congratulations, you have correctly identified that a man I was in a relationship with has been exposed as a multiple rapist. What makes you so sure he did not hurt me, too?

Honestly? I know you’re conspiracy theorists, but one of my real fears is that now that MMB has been blacklisted by every ethical tech/media company, he’ll be headhunted/recruited by the worst of the worst. If it hasn’t happened already. I wish I could believe otherwise.

I’ve truly no idea about that. But if anyone belongs in jail, that guy does- and I say that as someone who is a prison abolitionist. It may be the only way to stop him hurting women.

The Department for Work and Pensions asked me, a freelance writer, to create content to promote their campaign for empowerment in female employment - without being paid... NOPE.

If you have actual accusations to make, make them, and back them up. Otherwise, stop talking to me about my rapist ex.
