The URL Badman –

Not sure ‘recommend’ is the right word here, G+, but I’ll run with it.

This man has effectively undermined and belittled every intelligent, observant and relevant thing that Lily Allen is saying in this video by ‘playing the race card.’ (Does that term fit here?)

By – I personally think, wrongly – calling her a racist after viewing her video, he has effectively silenced her amazing commentary on women’s lot in the entertainment industry and beyond. If you argue with him, you are obviously racist yourself. At least that’s my experience. I’ve been told I don’t even KNOW I’m racist. By people who do not know me … not the first thing about my background (very white, very privileged, I admit, but they don’t know that).

As a side not – how insulting is THAT: being told that you do not even KNOW you are racist? As a person who is prone to self-examination and worry that she will fall into JUST such a trap, I find that very insulting indeed. I’m too stupid to know myself.

Anyway, that has nothing to do with Joe Bishop and his name calling. With his name calling he has tried to silence her. And if you call him out, you’re as evil as she is.

Well done. Joe Bishop. Stomp on the best artistic statement I have seen on what it’s like to be a woman in a sexist world. Well done.

Oh, and she’s not bashing on ‘us bloggers’. She is bashing on trolls. Trolls like you.

His ‘reply’ to URL Badman is Here in The Guardian. 

And video to the amazing Hard Out Here is one YouTube.
