Caitlin Moran stands by her AIDS jokes

A few years ago, Caitlin Moran made some truly awful AIDS jokes. This wasn’t a one off misguided remark but a whole series of them. I won’t quote any because quite frankly, I find them sickening. Here’s a Storify with a compilation we might as well call “Worst of Moran”, full of homophobic, transphobic and just plain gross bigoted “humor”. With all her posturing last week around her #twittersilence campaign, people brought up these awful “jokes” to light and demanded accountability (heh, that awful a word again). Not one to ever evaluate her actions or the harm they might inflict on others, this “feminist role model” is basking on the support.

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you.  Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
