Charlie Sheen has been given another TV show. And a Fiat commercial. Both of which he flaunts his blatant disrespect of women by asking in the fiat commercial, what do i get for good behavior? (inferring to his house arrest) to the model he is pressed on. And then in…
I still don’t and never will like Chris Brown ever. But I definitely noticed this too! Like, his image is only made BETTER by the fact that he is a criminal?! His past actually makes him marketable and he gets MORE deals and money? For being a criminal? That only happens to White Privileged Men in the business. Chris Brown was banned from the UK. Banned from various radio stations. People were saying he should be banned from the grammys. People are STILL talking about Chris Brown.
Yay rallying behind injustice but why do we only show that type of ‘sisterhood’ and support when its a face that falls in line with the historical image of “dangerous man”? Because Charlie Sheen got a roast from historical Friars Club on comedy central, love from the whole nation. He doesn’t look like a scary black man so suddenly his violence is acceptable and cool?! It doesn’t help women in the least when violence against women is ignored because the loudest feminists only identify the loudest feminists as a threat.
It doesn’t stop at just being a feminist, you have to be a feminist that’s willing to critically deconstruct the biases you hold and check what the movement as a whole is FAILING TO DO. You have to be CONSISTENT against violence and misogyny. But I guess it seems consistent when we only see violence as a threat when its racialized.
But seriously - Charlie Fucking Sheen?! You see nothing in the news about how vile and reprehensible he is. White Heterosexual Male Privilege must be ONE HELL OF A DRUG. White men in power have been painting black men as monsters since the dawn of this nation, while excusing and celebrating their own privilege and violence.
CHARLIE SHEEN SHOT HIS FUCKING WIFE
