Has every man on Earth suddenly gone full pervert?

I don’t understand what’s going on. I feel like I’m watching a bad episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit when I watch the evening news. It seems like every man in this country was told to go full pervert and someone forgot to tell me. I didn’t get the memo.

Harvey Weinstein

First, we found out film producer Harvey Weinstein was a massive sexual predator who used his position of power in Hollywood to force women to have sex with him.  Evidently, everyone in Hollywood knew he preyed upon women and nobody said anything. It was an “open secret,” whatever that means.

Kevin Spacey

Then, we found out Kevin Spacey tried to force himself on a 14-year-old boy when he was 26. Spacey issued a statement saying he doesn’t remember the incident but he was drinking a lot back then. Plus, he’s now officially gay.

If you can’t remember the time you tried to force yourself on a 14-year-old boy, it means you either have NFL level brain damage or you can’t remember because it was something you did all the time. After a while, all those 14-year-old boys just blur together, right? What a weirdo.

Roy Moore

Speaking of 14-year-olds, Judge Roy Moore, a hard-core Christian Republican running for the U.S. Senate in Alabama, is accused of trying to have sex with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32.

I bet he thinks he’s better than Kevin Spacey. He’s not.

If people are upset by this, the jokes on them. Judge Moore adheres to the Ten Commandments, not the laws of man. I just looked at the Ten Commandments. There’s not a word about having sex with 14-year-old girls, pro or con. Judge Moore is good to go and ready to rock the U.S. Senate.

I guess we now know the backstory of the gun Moore whipped out on stage at a rally. That little gun looked like something made for a 14-year-old girl. Maybe it was his girlfriend’s pistol.

Louis C.K.

And then there’s Louis C.K. He’s been accused of masturbating in front of non-consenting women. The story sounds so outlandish and depraved that it has to be true. Evidently, it too was an open secret.

This story bothers me the most because I was a fan of his comedy. No matter what happens from this point forward, I will never be able to laugh at his jokes again. There will be no possible resolution to this problem. He’s done making me laugh.

All these weirdos are the reason normal people have to go to sexual harassment training. When I worked in corporate America, it bothered me that I had to go annual sexual harassment training. I thought it was unnecessary and more than a little insulting. I didn’t need to be trained not to harass women just like I didn’t need to be trained not to kill people and eat their flesh.

I’m not a sexual harasser and I’m not a cannibal.

John Hillerman 1932 – 2017

John Hillerman is a man on the left.

I feel sorry for John Hillerman. He’s the actor who played Higgins on Magnum, P.I. He was such a master actor. Higgins was British and he sounded so snotty and refined, I just assumed has was British. Nope, he was from Texas. He was a Texan. That’s about as un-British as you can be.

John Hillerman died. He was 84. Because Louis C.K. literally can’t keep it in his pants, this is what I read on CNN this morning:

John Hillerman doesn’t deserve to have the word “masturbation” under the headline announcing his passing. John Hillerman was not a pervert.

Ethan Van Sciver, Diversity & Comics, and Dan Slott

Comics artist Ethan Van Sciver has a YouTube channel, ComicArtistPro Secrets. One of the things he does on his channel is to show how to draw. He normally draws superheroes, but my favorite video is where he showed how to draw disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein.

Van Sciver’s videos are pretty awesome. Not only is he a phenomenal artist, he has a way of speaking that is very relaxing. Watching an Ethan Van Sciver video is like watching Bob Ross drawing the Flash after you take a couple Xanax.

Diversity & Comics

I found out about Van Sciver’s channel from another YouTube channel, Diversity & Comics. Richard C. Meyer, the host of Diversity & Comics, recommended people check out ComicArtistPro Secrets. I did and I liked it.

A lot of what Meyer does on Diversity & Comics is roasting bad Marvel Comics books. The comics he roasts are the books steeped heavily in social justice politics. Thor is now a woman. The Hulk’s human counterpart is Asian. Iron Man is now a 15-year-old African-American girl. Ms. Marvel is a teenage Muslim girl. Iceman is now gay.

The reason I like Diversity & Comics is the videos remind me I’m not alone in my opinions. Not everyone loves the far left turn taken by Marvel Comics. I say this as someone who voted for Hilary Clinton this past presidential election and voted for Barack Omaba twice.

I’m not against more diverse characters. I’m against turning existing characters into diverse characters.

Ethan Van Sciver posted the following tweet on Twitter:

Who is Dan Slott?

Comic book writer Dan Slott.

Dan Slott is one of Marvel Comics’ top writers. He blocked me on Twitter. I don’t know why he did that. I’ve never interacted with him on Twitter.

I wrote a blog post about him in 2012. Slott was on the receiving end of some online death threats.  I supported Slott and denounced the online death threats.

I again wrote about Dan Slott in 2016. It wasn’t as supportive as my earlier post. I wrote about signing a petition to keep Dan Slott off Twitter.

Dan Slott can be kind of a jerk on Twitter

Dan Slott has a verified Twitter account. There’s a blue check next to his name. He has a verified account because he’s a famous comic book writer for Marvel Comics. He uses his Twitter account not to promote his comic books, but to virtue signal and argue politics. His politics are somewhere to the left of Bernie Sanders, Ho Chi Minh, and a random anonymous Daily Kos commentator.

Since I’m blocked from reading Dan Slott’s tweets, I have no easy way of knowing what he’s been up to on Twitter. I’d have to log out of Twitter before going to his Twitter feed. I guess I could pull up his Twitter feed in Firefox or Microsoft Edge. That seems like too much work. If he doesn’t want me to see his tweets, I won’t look at his tweets.

I’m not an animal.

Did Dan Slott block me because of my post about signing that petition? I doubt it. The petition was a parody and was not at all serious. If Marvel Comics cared what Dan Slott tweeted about, they could find out for themselves. They wouldn’t need a petition to guide them. Plus, it’s not like Dan Slott reads my blog so he would have no way of knowing that I signed the petition.

I’m certain Slott blocked me because I follow the Diversity & Comics Twitter account. That’s what he does. According to some people, Dan Slott uses a Steve Shives-like bot. It blocks anyone who follows certain Twitter accounts.

How many of Van Sciver’s subscribers starting watching because of  Richard C. Meyer’s recommendation? How many subscribers started watching because of Dan Slott recommendation?

Ethan Van Sciver is doing a disservice to his fans. If someone is blocking his subscribers, not because of anything they did, but because of who they follow, maybe that person shouldn’t be his first YouTube live guest.

To be clear, Ethan Van Sciver is free to invite anyone he chooses for a YouTube live feed. Also to be clear, I’m free to unsubscribe from his channel anytime I choose.

Fans should never be taken for granted.
