Comedian Aaron Glaser was found guilty of rape. Well, not found guilty as much as accused. The police weren’t actually involved. There wasn’t a trial. But an anonymous letter was sent to the Upright Citizens Brigade where he worked, so that’s enough these days…
A male comedian has been banned from the New York comedy circuit after several women have come forward to accuse him of rape and sexual assault. Comedian Aaron Glaser is not permitted to work at his job at the Upright Citizens Brigade (U.C.B.) theater after several women came forward alleging he has sexually assaulted, raped or harassed them, Revelist reported.
Glaser responded with this message via Facebook:
I want to make one thing abundantly clear: rapists are the lowest for of scum, whose crimes should be punishable cruelly and unusually, or at the very least, be forced to walk around general population wearing a sign that reads “I’m a Rapist.”
Not clear enough? If you rape someone, you can GFY. You’re done.
But, and this is a giant feminist sized but here, before we put a sign around your neck and destroy your life (which again, as a convicted rapist, deserves to be destroyed), there should be due process. You should have your day in court. You should be assumed innocent until proven guilty. You should be judged by a jury of your peers. There should be some evidence. That I even have to write all this makes me want to curl up into a ball and cry into the night. Not unlike a feminist who just had her planetary-sized posterior used as the butt of a pun-joke.
Not you, nor anyone else, should be tried by a social media lynch mob, which gets most things wrong more often than not (see also Mattress Girl, University of Virginia, and Milwaukee). Facebook and Twitter do not replace juries, prosecuting attorneys, defense attorneys or judges. No matter how many angry emojis you may use.
Because it gets worse. Even friends coming to Glaser’s defense, like Kurt Metzger, a former writer for LwC fav Amy Schumer, have the mob chasing him with digital pitchforks and Apple’s new squirt gun emoji…
Metzger took to Facebook and Twitter to make his thoughts on sexual assault known that many saw as victim-blaming.
‘Hey, I know the cops aren’t always helpful and that rapists often don’t get convicted,’ Metzger, 39, posted on his personal Facebook page on Sunday.
‘Still, call the cops first. Then, after they f****** up we can do this disgusting social media lynch mob to convict some improv guy I never heard of.’
In another post, he wrote: ‘Don’t f***king complain about the police not helping if you didn’t bother going to the police at all. ‘Why aren’t the rape kits being tested??’ Because instead of actually educating women with useful information on what to do if they are victimized, you blather nonsense about ‘culture’ and then tell them being weak is being strong.’
Side note, Amy Schumer said she didn’t want to talk about it and even went so far as to block people who asked her about it. Way to be a feminist!
But can anyone tell me where Metzger is wrong? Anyone?
Ladies, rape is traumatic. I get it. Okay? Okay. But if you want to punish your rapist, you need evidence he did it. Like a rape kit. A police report. Otherwise we’re having to measure your accusations against the myriad of false accusations women use against men they don’t like. We don’t like doing it, okay? But we have a number of stories of women redefining rape as regretful sex the next day. Read New Rape Rules for Feminism: ‘I didn’t say no… but it’s still rape!” Sadly for women who have really been raped, women who haven’t been raped are crying wolf. It’s hard for us to know who’s telling the truth and who’s trying to get their payout.
This is the problem with the supposed “rape culture” feminists cows keep touting. Aaron Glaser is caught in the crossfire. Is he guilty? Is he innocent? We can’t know, because it sounds like there’s zero proof, just accusations (ALLEGEDLY). Sorry, that’s not how justice works these days. No matter how shrill you are.
Speaking of shrill…
