DOUBLE STANDARDS: MILO JOKED, LENA DUNHAM MOLESTED HER SISTER, SARAH SILVERMAN MADE PEDOPHILE JOKES, NYT DEFENDED PEDOPHILES
Milo shows the perils of not processing his victimization.
Milo was raped as a child, repeatedly. Full stop. He used humor to deal with this grief. That is a way for a private person to handle his trauma. Public personalities are not allowed to openly joke about such subject matters. This is especially true when no one knows your back story.
Milo needs to spend time alone engaging in some horrific and painful reflection involving reliving much of the trauma. This is easy for me to say, of course, although today’s events show the cost of running from your past.
There are double standards. Milo joked, Roman Polanski raped.
Sarah Silverman has made pedophile jokes. Lena Dunham admitted to molesting her sister. Roman Polanski anally raped a 13-year old girl (after he drugged her).
Since raping a girl, Polanski has risen to stardom in Hollywood, earning standing ovations from adoring crowds. Lena Dunham had a show on HBO for five years, and Silverman remains in the game.
