I’ve watched the Jian Ghomeshi drama unfold from the beginning. From the initial allegations, to the trial and now to the verdict, I’ve had to challenge myself to put aside my own dislike of Ghomeshi in support of the rule of law.
In my video, you can see my interview with prominent anti-feminist blogger and vlogger, Karen Straughan from Girl Writes What. Karen shares her thoughts about the trial, Ghomeshi himself and the defence counsel Marie Heinen.
The Ghomeshi trial has been an unholy dust up between the two sides of modern feminism that turned into a street fight. It’s a battle between what feminism sells itself as and what feminism is in reality.
A self empowered female prosecutor is under attack for not giving women victims special treatment. The poster child for what feminists tell us is success is now hated for holding women to the exact same standards as men.
As for me, I’m happy to watch the brawl from across the street.
