Gore Vidal is Dead! “I really don’t give a fuck…..”

August 1, 2012

In response to the Roman Polanski sexual abuse case, Vidal said: “I really don’t give a fuck. Look, am I going to sit and weep every time a young hooker feels as though she’s been taken advantage of?”

    Agree absolutely. We will now see the “progressives” fawning all over this man, in their usual hypocritical way (see also Christopher H*tchens). Interesting also how any woman must be beyond perfect every last second of every last day, whereas men are forgiven and accepted for huge amounts of vileness – they’re just quirky geniuses or “characters”. Gaaah.

      Not to mention how exceptionally nasty he was to female authors. He had snideness for many authors (male and female) but he seemed to save the most vicious for female authors. I remember looking up Joyce Carol Oates right after I read a story of hers, a story that basically compelled me to start reading, and there he was saying, “Joyce Carol Oates, the three saddest words in the English language….” Or something like that. In other words, he had to chop down anyone (especially a woman) who gave him any competition. A lack of nastiness may have led me to read his works, instead it convinced me to ignore anything he has written.

    I really don’t give a fuck, either.
