Rose McGowan Misogygate

Posted in GSU photo archive, Politics, The Internet by chamblee54 on November 6, 2014









The headline in the fb feed was not subtle. Rose McGowan: ‘Gay Men Are As Misogynistic As Straight Men, If Not More So’ PG had heard the little known celebrity say similar things on the Bret Easton Ellis Podcast a month earlier. Why was she flogging the same donkey twenty eight days later?

It turns out the barrage of McGowan media mulch is based on the podcast. When PG heard them the first time, it was dismissed as somebody with too many opinions. Now these same offerings were broadcast with wider distribution. Are we supposed to care what Rose McGowan thinks?

One issue is the Beverly Hills Hotel. It is owned by someone the community deems unworthy. A boycott was announced. The people working at the BHH were financially hurt by this boycott.

What Miss McGowan does not mention is the zero sum nature of the game. When the trendy people quit going to one facility, they find another one. The people who work at the new designated watering hole will make more money. The chances are good that the next legal drug emporium is owned by someone with opinions contrary to popular fashion. When one service industry employee loses, another service industry employee wins. It is not fair.

It is curious that misogygate is getting attention now. It is as if a press agent hit on a story, and all the media outlets on the chain got the call. Does Miss McGowan have some product that needs publicity? Is a more important story being pushed into the background? Why was this interview not the center of attention a month ago? Inquiring minds want to know.

Another ironic touch is the spectacle of a woman crying “gay misogyny” on the Bret Easton Ellis Podcast. Mr. Ellis, a gay man, has been dogged by charges of misogyny since the publication of “American Psycho.” He takes it in stride. *Insert profound comment about public figure dealing with accusations of incorrect thinking.*

Miss McGowan has issued an apology of sorts. Miss McGowan references a comment, by a gay man, about a character in a fictional tv show. It is tough to see how the comment justifies trash talk by a neo-celebrity. These things too shall pass away. Pictures today are from “The Special Collections and Archives, Georgia State University Library”. Here is part two of the story.

    I don’t understand the relationship between these interesting old photos and the unimportant, uninteresting opinion of an actor being argued about on Facebook. I would have just posted the photos.
