So one of the jurors who voted for Bill Cosby’s acquittal has come forward with his reasons why. Among them? Oh, just that Andrea Constand had a bare midriff, which totally implied consent to sex; since her tummy was exposed, she was totally asking for Bill Cosby to rape her!
I wish to fuck I could say that I’m making this shit up, but I can’t.
It gets worse, because it always fucking does:
He later said Constand should have only gone to Cosby’s house if she had “dressed properly and left the incense in the store,” referring to a gift of incense that she had purchased for Cosby.
Oh, but if she had dressed in a proper and chaste way and had covered EVERY LITTLE BIT OF EXPOSED SKIN then Cosby would have totes been able to control himself. Because it wasn’t really about rape, you know. It was just about Cosby being horny and all that. Because rape isn’t a crime; it’s really about sex. Or something.
As if that wasn’t bad enough:
Tellingly, the juror also felt that many of the 60 other women who have also accused Cosby of sexual assault were lying, describing the situation as “ridiculous, unbelievable” and insisting that “more than half jumped on the bandwagon.”
Yep, cause all them lyin’ ass wimminz is a-lyin’! Ain’t none of that shit troo! 🙄
Yeah, I smell bullshit. With a red pill chaser. And the slightest tinge of MRA garbage. But I digress, as always.
As he put it, “We were trying to match the testimony up with the charges. Everybody’s interpretation of those words was something different.”
Translation: “Uhhhhhh, gotta say something here that doesn’t make me look like the world’s biggest douche… say something that has to do with legal interpretation!”
Adding insult to injury is the fact that Cosby will be holding town hall meetings. That are totes not about sexual assault but about restoring his “image”. Because he wants to come back and perform.
Unless his act involves him standing on stage while the audience gets to throw moldy fruit at him, I really don’t see Cosby making much of a comeback here. That’s about the nicest thing I have to say, so I’ll leave it at that.
And people wonder why I’m so damned cynical. Gee, it wouldn’t be because of horse shit like this, now would it? Fuck it, I’m done. Time to binge a few hundred kitten videos before I lose whatever faith I have in my own species.
The robot apocalypse can’t come soon enough for my tastes. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going into the other room to scream. For obvious reasons.
