#DickheadDetox: The Weinstein Years

It’s been a few years since I’ve written a post tracking abusive celebrity men under the tag #DickheadDetox. The origins came from an article by Eva Wiseman in the Guardian about holding violent male celebrities accountable: “It’s to do with my problem giving money to dicks, to people who’ve punched their wives or broken their … Continue reading #DickheadDetox: The Weinstein Years

#DickheadDetox: Clint Eastwood for whitesplaining racism

Clint Eastwood has a very nice spread in Esquire with his son Scott in which he pontificates on being too important to raise his son and claiming that people who call out racism belong to the ‘pussy generation’.       Have to say, I assumed Eastwood was dead what with being rather old. He’s … Continue reading #DickheadDetox: Clint Eastwood for whitesplaining racism

#DickheadDetox: George Clooney for hypocrisy

George Clooney’s hypocrisy as a human rights defender has been well known for years. It’s hard to take a man claiming to be a left-wing Right-On Dude seriously when he advertise for Nestle – a corporation renown for it’s total disregard for basic human rights like free access to clean water for everyone. Hell, they are … Continue reading #DickheadDetox: George Clooney for hypocrisy

#DickheadDetox Donald Trump for being a White Supremacist

  Donald Trump’s recent public statements on migrant workers don’t need to be deconstructed: they are racist and xenophobic. But, he isn’t an anomaly. Trump represents the core of the Republican Party. Dismissing Trump as a joke or ‘mad’ is to fundamentally misunderstand American politics. It ignores the entirety of American history starting at colonization and continues … Continue reading #DickheadDetox Donald Trump for being a White Supremacist

#DickheadDetox: Owen Jones for Whining about not winning feminism

  To be fair, there are lots of reasons why Owen Jones could be nominated for the #DickheadDetox : his recent inability to understand that lesbians are human too followed by his excruciating refusal to recognise that watching pornography at work isn’t acceptable for anyone, including middle aged white dudes – or, that a judge … Continue reading #DickheadDetox: Owen Jones for Whining about not winning feminism

#DickheadDetox: Matthew Sanders for being a selfish tosser

This as swipe, having had a massive temper tantrum at being caught illegally parking in a parking space for people with disabilities has chosen to spend the whole day wasting the time of police officers, traffic wardens and blocking a parking space. This is so quintessentially entitled male behaviour that it’s almost impossible to believe … Continue reading #DickheadDetox: Matthew Sanders for being a selfish tosser

#DickheadDetox: Pharrell Williams for refusing to listen

Because he’s apparently the dude who wrote most of Blurred Lines – a song he’s allowed Robin Thicke to get most of the credit – and backlash for. And, despite hundreds of thousands of women explaining why they found it triggering, he’s decided it’s totes ok because he wrote the song from a “good place”. … Continue reading #DickheadDetox: Pharrell Williams for refusing to listen

#DickheadDetox : The Entire Cast of the Expendables 3

I knew about Mel Gibson’s history of misogyny and racism. Hell, who hasn’t heard the video tape of Gibson shouting racist vitriol at a police officer several years ago.  I had absolutely no idea that most of the male main cast of the Expendables have histories of domestic violence.  – not until I read Kate … Continue reading #DickheadDetox : The Entire Cast of the Expendables 3

#DickheadDetox XVALA for sexual violence

XVALA is apparently an “artist” – in the loosest possible definition of the word who has somehow managed to get himself a show at the Cory Allen Contemporary Art (CACA) in Florida. Personally, I’ve never heard of either of them but that’s because I prefer my artists not to engage in or perpetrate sexual violence. Now, … Continue reading #DickheadDetox XVALA for sexual violence

Ceelo Green: Still Fighting to be #1 on the #DickheadDetox

Ceelo Green’s been on the #DickheadDetox for a while now what with his history of violence against women and inability to take responsibility for his own actions. His latest foray into proving he’s a violent asshole involves the following tweets: I can’t say anything new from what I’ve said before about Green’s perpetuation and perpetration … Continue reading Ceelo Green: Still Fighting to be #1 on the #DickheadDetox
