Grey Delisle is a goddess.
She said something offensive, people (rightly) got offended, and she was a bit of a diaper baby about it.
And it is right to call her out on anything bigoted she said, and even on being a diaper baby.
But then I saw people calling her a bitch, the c-word, all varieties of slurs, hurling death threats at her, telling her she should kill herself, and basically every permutation of every terrible thing you can say to someone on the internet
And suddenly I’m forced to either defend Grey DeLisle (who was, in fact, wrong to have behaved the way she did) or defend the living embodiment of Kate Beaton’s “straw feminist” monsters, who are, incidentally, giving those of us who are actually striving for forward progress a bad name, because you can’t seem to criticize Grey now without risking being associated with the assholes who are attempting to fight bigotry with more bigotry.
So I’m basically sitting here like “almost everyone involved in this scenario is terrible.”
