Inspired Procrastination

Some dudes with a camera asked Bill Murray for an autograph, and instead of giving them one he offered to shoot a Wes Anderson-style slow motion walk with them.

Amazing.

In Which I Rant:
If you don’t want to read a rant about the child abuse scandal at Penn State, just scroll on by. This screed was inspired by the news that WBC is planning on picketing Paterno’s funeral.

My heart goes out to his family which in my estimation are blameless. I don’t follow sports, but I understand Paterno is a very much loved character who meant a lot to a lot of people. I cut him exactly ZERO slack for all of this. It is a sad story when a person dedicates so many years to something then seriously fucks up his image at the last. But what he did (the minimum necessary) is utterly unforgivable in my eyes. Any decent person should have been outraged and unable to stop themselves from taking those allegations to the authorities and then following up with them every goddamn day to make sure something was done.

I truly do understand that organized sports are very important to a lot of people. What I don’t understand is the lengths of indecency people will go to to protect their franchises. The reason that everyone in that organization did the minimum necessary is because they were afraid that scandal would interfere with the team. They didn’t want to do anything to slow down or stop the all important game from going on. How they could sleep at night knowing they were turning a blind eye to such horrific mistreatment of children (underprivileged, minority children, at that) is beyond me. There’s a point at which the need to protect the innocent trumps everything. Especially something that is basically an entertainment franchise. It sucks, but the moment Sandusky started assaulting children, Penn State’s football program was doomed to scandal. Trying to hold it off by not reporting it to the authorities, was despicable.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Organizations don’t need complicated procedures for how to handle allegations of child molestation and rape. It’s very simple. The moment someone knows something they should go to the civil authorities. Not the person’s boss. I don’t care if it’s a coach or a priest. When a crime is committed against a child, you report it to the police and you fucking follow up until something is done.

Please forgive my rant. There is nothing more important than protecting the minds and bodies of children until they’re able to do it themselves.

NO I DO NOT NEED TO EAT, MOM. I NEED YOU TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOUR HETERONORMATIVE IDEALS AND DRACONIAN ADHERENCE TO TRADITIONAL GENDER BINARIES CLOUD YOUR ABILITY TO ACCEPT THE WORLD AS IT SHOULD BE AND PREVENT YOU FROM MAKING CHANGES THAT MIGHT FREE US FROM THE DESTRUCTIVE AND THREATENING OPPRESSION OF A PRIVILEGED RULING MALE CLASS. I NEED YOU TO UNDERSTAND GENDER INEQUALITY AND THE STRUGGLE OF THE LGBT COMMUNITY AGAINST THE PREVAILING HEGEMONY SO THAT FUTURE GENERATIONS CAN TRULY EXPERIENCE EQUALITY AND FREEDOM OF CHOICE, SOCIAL MOBILITY AND A SENSE OF PEACE, NOT SUBJECT THEMSELVES TO INFERIOR ROLES WITHIN A FLAWED AND OVERREACHING SYSTEM OF DOMINANCE AND FEAR.
I SPENT ALL DAY OVER A HOT STOVE TO PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE. EAT SOMETHING.
OH MY GOD! DO YOU SEE WHAT I MEAN?
