Glen Rogers is serving two death sentences for two 1995 murders — Tina Cribbs, fatally stabbed in a Tampa motel room in 1995, and the rape and strangulation of Sanda Gallagher of Van Nuys, Calif. Police said he set fire to Gallagher’s body in her pickup truck after killing her, the first of his five alleged murders from California to Florida in a two-month span. He met both women in bars.
Rogers was driving Cribbs’ Ford Festiva when he led police on a 15-mile chase that reached 100 mph before a roadblock by a half-dozen police cruisers forced him off U.S. 52.
He was also charged with killing three women in Jackson, Mississippi.

john campbell is a scumbag and them’s the breaks

not-fun:

by icarus, age 10

here’s the thing. 
this dude made a comic.
this dude said he had depression.
this dude ran a kickstarter, talking about his depression and his struggle with it and how it influenced his comic.
his kickstarter got 50k$

and then he admitted he never had depression and was faking it for profit.

this makes me angry for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is that this is prettymuch word for word the plot of a cartman scheme in a southpark episode.

i draw comics. i actually have depression. 

but now that this guy and his super popular webcomic has come out and gone LOL, FAKING MY DEPRESSION J/K it throws all artists who actually have it into an awkward position. we can’t actually discuss how it influenced our work or how a kickstarter might help us out, because now there’s fear that we’ll be suspected of lying for financial gain. all of us. forever. because we’re a nervous bunch.

and all the kickstarter backers will suspect us. forever. because you’ve made them a suspicious bunch, john campbell.

and nothing is worse for depression than a sense of isolation and disbelief of your peers

what campbell did undermines all of us who actually use art as a coping mechanism, who actually wrangle that vile serpent in our heads down to the ground and trap it on paper as a method of feeling a little better about ourselves. it undermines ANYONE with a similar condition, because while those of us with real problems learn how to live with them and overcome them and are kept humble? 

people like john campbell see dollar signs.

people with real problems see the aftermath of john campbell and feel like they need to isolate themselves more. people without problems see the aftermath of john campbell and decide to scrutinize anyone claiming depression/OCD/ADHD/etc more. EVERYONE LOSES, EXCEPT JOHN CAMPBELL.

and that’s just fucked up. you do not fake an illness for money. ever. ever, ever. you do not take 51,000$ for your faked illness. you do not pocket it and walk away.

he should at LEAST give half IF NOT ALL of it to suicide support lines. cause fuck, seeing shit like that is sure as hell going to trigger a few calls. 

so in conclusion, fuck you john campbell.
fuck you on behalf of depressed comix artists everywhere.
i hope every item you consume for the rest of your life tastes like stale dog urine
i hope every toilet seat you sit on will be warm and slightly damp
i hope that every time you lie down to go to bed, a spider will crawl out from under your sheets and scurry around on the bed before abruptly vanishing leaving you to wonder all night if it is gone or not

and i hope the IRS takes all your money away and gives it to charities which help people with depression, john campbell, because you deserve none of it. may you have a severe allergic reaction to the binding used on your books, and may you never draw another comic ever again.

because what you did was hella wrong
and saying sorry does not fix it
and that’s all there is to it

wow I had no idea this even went down

this is shittier than shitty

You fucking scum.
YOU FUCKING SCUM.
THIS IS IT.
THIS GIRL IS THE ULTIMATE CULMINATION OF TUMBLR SOCIAL JUSTICE.

[TW: Rape] List of Comedians defending Tosh

vriska:

sonic-hip-attack:

List of Comedians that are being unapologetically dense about this issue:

  • Jim Norton (“Why is it okay for an actor to play a rapist, but not for a comic to joke about it?”)
  • Louis C.K. (“your show makes me laugh every time I watch it. And you have pretty eyes”) 
  • Patton Oswalt (“Wow, @danieltosh had to apologize to a self-aggrandizing, idiotic blogger. Hope I never have to do that (again).”)
  • Dane Cook (“If you journey through life easily offended by other peoples words I think it’s best for everyone if you just kill yourself”)
  • Anthony Jeselnik (“An offended audience member repeating a comedian’s act from memory is worse than, literally, anything”)
  • Stevie Ryan (“Daniel Tosh can’t make a rape joke but Eminem can have hit songs about it? PS. AIDS jokes are funnier”)
  • Doug Stanhope (“You’re hilarious. If you ever apologize to a heckler again I will rape you. #FuckThatPig”) — wow.
  • Opie Radio (“To all the idiots! I completely support Daniel Tosh being a comic in a comedy club! Even if it means rape jokes!”)
  • Kumail Nanjiani (“Two things about the Tosh thing. 1. It was said in the moment and not a pre written thing. 2. If you think he’s pro rape you’re an idiot.”) — this one, though. as though it makes it better that it was an off-the-cuff comment. don’t you see how revealing that is about him and his values?
  • Sarah Beattie (“calm down about rape jokes everyone’s been raped at least once by george lucas”)
  • Doug Benson (“Maybe Daniel Tosh was confused about where he was. He wouldn’t have offended anyone over at the Rape Factory. #ThisTweetWillBeDeletedSoon”)

Just so you have a list and can see how horrible people are all in one place

are you kidding me

What do they say…?

here are a couple of examples…

I doubt they would ever get the opportunity to do so, at least I would hope so.

Considering their attitudes, they seem to be the types who’d make an opportunity

So a Girl Walks into a Comedy Club….

breakfastcookie:

This is something that happened to a friend of mine in her own words.

So, on Friday night my friend and I were at her house and wanted to get out and do something for the evening. We brainstormed ideas and she brought up the idea of seeing a show at the Laugh Factory. I’d never been, I thought it sounded fun, so we went. We saw that Dane Cook, along some other names we didn’t recognize we’re playing, and while we both agree that Cook’s style is not really our taste we were opened-minded about what the others had to offer. And we figured even good ol’ Dane can be funny sometimes, even if it’s not really our thing. Anyhoo, his act was actually fine, but then when his was done, some other guy I didn’t recognize took the stage. Of course, I would find out later this was Daniel Tosh, but at the time I thought he was just some yahoo who somehow got a gig going on after Cook. I honestly thought he was an amateur because he didn’t seem that comfortable on stage and seemed to have a really awkward presence. 


So Tosh then starts making some very generalizing, declarative statements about rape jokes always being funny, how can a rape joke not be funny, rape is hilarious, etc. I don’t know why he was so repetitive about it but I felt provoked because I, for one, DON’T find them funny and never have. So I didnt appreciate Daniel Tosh (or anyone!) telling me I should find them funny. So I yelled out, “Actually, rape jokes are never funny!”

I did it because, even though being “disruptive” is against my nature, I felt that sitting there and saying nothing, or leaving quietly, would have been against my values as a person and as a woman. I don’t sit there while someone tells me how I should feel about something as profound and damaging as rape. 

After I called out to him, Tosh paused for a moment. Then, he says, “Wouldn’t it be funny if that girl got raped by like, 5 guys right now? Like right now? What if a bunch of guys just raped her…” and I, completely stunned and finding it hard to process what was happening but knowing i needed to get out of there, immediately nudged my friend, who was also completely stunned, and we high-tailed it out of there. It was humiliating, of course, especially as the audience guffawed in response to Tosh, their eyes following us as we made our way out of there. I didn’t hear the rest of what he said about me.

Now in the lobby, I spoke with the girl at the will-call desk, and demanded to see the manager. The manager on duty quickly came out to speak with me, and she was profusely apologetic, and seemed genuinely sorry about what had happened, but of course we received no refund for our tickets, but instead a comped pair of tickets, although she admitted she understood if we never wanted to come back. I can imagine the Laugh Factory doesn’t really have a policy in place for what happens when a woman has to leave in a hurry because the person onstage is hurling violent words about sexual violence at her. Although maybe I’m not the first girl to have that happen to her. 

I should probably add that having to basically flee while Tosh was enthusing about how hilarious it would be if I was gang-raped in that small, claustrophic room was pretty viscerally terrifying and threatening all the same, even if the actual scenario was unlikely to take place. The suggestion of it is violent enough and was meant to put me in my place.”
