If you're showing up to an alleged rapist's trial with your shirt on, are you even protesting?
I'm gonna argue that you aren't, and that anyone thinking about protesting, say, a Bill Cosby rape trial, should seriously consider showing up with no shirt on. That is, if they want to be taken at all seriously.
The Cos is in court again, facing charges that he had steamy non-con sex with Andrea Constand—which, I don't even think this trial should be allowed, both because I'm pretty sure he was already tried for this before (which would be double jeopardy) and because who would want to have sex with Andrea Constand, conscious or otherwise?
No but really, it sounds like they're trying to railroad the Cos. I'm seeing think pieces about what effect the #MeToo movement might have on the trial. As if. And I heard they're gonna allow some of his other accusers to testify. Which, again, shouldn't be allowed, since those were entirely separate "incidents."
Yesterday, on the first day of this latest trial, a girl who used to be on the Cosby Show (possibly a tragic mulatto) showed up with no shirt on, ranting and raving about something or other. She was quickly tackled and thrown into some bushes. The Cos, who's been pretending to be blind, leaned over to get a better look.
I hope similar outbursts take place every day of this trial, not "for my own personal amusement." but because I believe in the cause.
