I couldn’t help but share and comment on the article in the Inquisitr, by Joshua Waldrop which addresses Bill Cosby and the rape allegations against him. It brings light to the devastating life-long effects on victims, and how people knew, yet did nothing. Women’s lives were ruined in a way they never should have been. How many times do we have to see this before we step out of our comfort zones, and stand up for what’s right?
Yeah, I’m not going to set Cosby’s picture and give him attention. Instead let’s give some attention to Patton Oswalt for speaking out. This isn’t the first time Patton has spoken about rape. He deserves some credit for his integrity, recognizing that feelings on this subject should never be dismissed. Patton Oswalt Changes Mind on Rape Culture
Finally, attention is being given to the effects of rape, assault and sexual abuse. Maybe, this is a signal that a shift is being made towards silence being broken, ending the shame. Being originally from Philly, knowing how Cosby made so many laugh, his good will, even some of his philosophy on life, once I get past the sad and disappointed, I am completely disgusted. However, and please don’t get angry with me, there is a small part of me deep down, that says, “thank you Bill Cosby,” your actions are actually bringing wide spread awareness and attention to this issue, so that maybe, just maybe, we can do more about it.
