I have followers on “Stories” that aren’t my Facebook friends, so reposting here:
This Cosby thing is freaking me out, because from where I sit, there are too few people willing to believe that Cliff Huxtable is a rapist, and that’s the problem. Cliff and Bill are not the same person, never have been. Bill Cosby, Trademark is not the same as bill, either. Duality lives in a lot of people, and it is frightening for all involved when worlds collide. I refuse to take away his legacy of joy to the world, but at the same time, I think he is one of the most despicable people on earth because he won’t own it. Won’t sit in his wrongness and ask to be forgiven. Won’t apologize for all the gaslighting he’s done to these women to make them believe that if they talked, they were going to be in a lot of trouble. It’s what rapists do. Stop looking at guilty vs. innocent and start looking with your heart. Even if these women weren’t raped, can you not see that they have been through *something?* Can you not see that when these women came forward, they weren’t told that they were brave? They were told that they were wrong.
Sit in that.
