Though we’ve known the upcoming Richard Pryor documentary was set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 23, now there’s a date when non-festival attendees can bask in the glory of the iconic comedian’s life. On Friday, May 31, Showtime will air Richard Pryor: Omit The Logic, according to Deadline, who explains the film, “chronicles Pryor’s life from his troubled youth in Peoria, Illinois, to his meteoric rise as one of the most respected comic actors of the 20th century.”

When White People Discovered America..
Yet Carr’s tweet — his only comment on The Onion matter so far — indicates that he wonders how the writers are feeling, which strikes me as the least interesting part of this. The Onion’s writer or writers had a degree power in this situation (more than 4.5 million Twitter followers, which is just one measure of its influence), and that person or people used it to lob an extraordinarily crude word at a child. Forgive me if I haven’t spent much time thinking about how the whole thing affects them, and a good deal of time wondering if Wallis can be shielded from hearing that word for a long time to come…
There was nothing clever, witty or perceptive about the Wallis comment. The tweet that invoked her name — and the treatment of women at the Oscars in general — was about putting less powerful people in their place. When a more powerful entity attacks a less powerful entity — especially a more vulnerable group that has been historically marginalized and demeaned — why should we worry about how the more powerful feel?

if he thinks rape jokes are funny go on a romantic boat ride with him and leave him in the middle of the fucking ocean to die
CASUAL THINGS YOU DO THAT TRIVIALIZE RAPE (SO PLEASE STOP DOING THEM)
- Making rape jokes. Examples: ‘rape is just a struggle snuggle’ or ‘it’s not rape if you say surprise first’ or ‘if you rape a prostitute, is it rape or shoplifting’ or ANY OTHER RAPE JOKE.
- Calling situations that are nothing like rape rape. Examples: ‘that math test totally raped my ass’ or ‘the IRS really raped me this year’ or ‘i would absolutely rape something to eat right now’.
- Questioning survivors. Examples: ‘are you sure you didn’t just change your mind in the morning?’ or ‘I don’t think it’s rape if he’s your boyfriend’ or ‘are you just saying that so you won’t be called a slut?’
- Talking about rape as a positive. Example: ‘I would love to get raped by a hot girl’ or ‘I wish [insert attractive female celebrity here] would rape me’,
- Pantomiming rape. For some reason, the guys at my school think it is the absolute height of humor to sneak up on each other and simulate humping one another while yelling ‘rape!’. PRO TIP: It isn’t funny at all and it makes you look like a complete and total asshole.
- Calling all physical contact rape. I don’t know how many times I’ve seen (usually, but not always) guys at my school engage in minor physical contact like accidentally bumping someone in the hallway or seen two of them wrestling, and one or both will start laughing and screaming “RAPE! RAPE! HE’S RAPING ME!”
This is obviously a very incomplete list, so please feel free to add your own.
PS - If you do any of this stuff, you are an asshole and you need to stop right now
