The obvious is still obvious. But gaslighters are everywhere.

Alexandra DeSantis points out the problem with screaming "Qanon!" at criticism of Netflix's sexualization of children:

Believe it or not you actually don’t have to be a lunatic conspiracy theorist to have a problem with a movie that depicts literal children in sexual ways. That this needs to be explained to people in the media says a lot.

It also says a lot about billion dollar multinational corporations, and the standards they are happy to set. 

If you think of multinationals as debauched royals and the media as fawning courtiers trying to enhance their status through lickspittle coverage, you understand things just fine.

Be reasonably civil. Ire alloyed with reason is fine. But slagging the host gets you the banhammer.
