I have heard this expression twice now in cases where it should be alarming and a LOT more serious too people.
The first time was those Republican mothers, when the Brett Kavanaugh case, and they said “what boy hasn’t committed sexual assaulted, it’s what they do”.
Oh, okay then.
The second has been with Depp, and his little sociopaths’ stan’s saying “He was just venting to a friend” I don’t know how much you know about the case. These “just venting” text to his friend Paul Bettany, who I’ve also gone off of. Where horrific and quiet frankly, those texts should have been enough. It’s that whole “it’s just locker room” talk mentality. I’m going to post a couple of these texts, word for word. And tell me if you think they should be taken with a “grain of salt”.
“Let’s drown her before we burn her!!! I will f— her burnt corpse afterwards to make sure she’s dead.”
“Hopefully that c—‘s rotting corpse is decomposing in the f—–g trunk of a Honda Civic!!”
Depp’s testimony in mind in which he denied knowledge of texts that were presented, including a message about sex with a woman that read: “I NEED. I WANT. I TAKE.”
Too be an abuser, you don’t need to physically touch someone. I hope we all understand this. Again, this is a safe space. In my life I have dealt with a lot of emotional and mental abuse. Mainly from my Dad, so believe me when I say that what Depp has said IS abusive, and, quietly frankly is psychopathic. Depp, Kavanaugh, Trump are ALL abusers, in powers of positions, No matter what their little stan’s say.
The sad thing is the majority of people who support these abusers, are white middle-aged straight women.
The most important sign that the victims of these “men” are, in fact, victims. Is the fact, that once again, I don’t mind talking about. The actual professionals, the people who run abuse centers, most, if not all of the women who started #MeToo have spoken OUT about what Depp has done. They have spoken AGAINST, Depp, Trump, Kavanaugh etc. I think THEY might be onto something. Not these “women” who leave out information and just plain lie about things.
We’re in 2022 people, grow up!
How many more “grains of salt” are you willingly to give these “men”? Surely by NOW they should be running out.
And one more time, just because Trump, Kavanaugh and Depp continue to get away with their behaviour, except for those two times Depp was legally called a wife beater. Does not mean, they are good people. That is the whole point of power.
