The comparison is about hate and prejudice. I think human experience of prejudice whether it’s as a result of racism, transphobia, homophobia should be called out. Any group of people seeking justice is a closer ally to other groups seeking justice than the faces of hate and prejudice.

As a black, straight, cisgender woman, I stand in solidarity with all the people fighting for justice and equality.

This is so fucking insane and yet so normal. Cultures and societies are not static. They evolve and there are always people who are fearful of change. These guys are no different than those who were screaming at 6-year old Ruby Bridges, the first African American child to desegregate an elementary school in the south and paving the way for Civil Rights action in the American South.

Every time I despair about these people and their hateful actions, I am reminded of the images of those who were screaming at that little girl and their ugliness. Ruby won and the future Rubys will win. I just hope we didn't have to deal with a version of these hateful lunatics every decade.

I don't get why this is affecting their jobs. I am not saying cheating is okay but that is a private matter and it only concerns their families. What does this have to do with their jobs. I just hate how fucking puritanical America can get.

They can't be the first tv hosts who were doing the dirty while co-hosting a show.

MSNBC's George Scarborough and Mika B cheated on their spouses and then divorced them and they didn't get fired. I only know about this because the Vulgarian who somehow became POTUS ranted about them in 2016.
