    I can't call in at that day and time either. Is there going to be anyone calling in to call Kozelek out?

    And that's a huge difference between the Kozelek situation and Tim Meadows' situation that Matt completely glossed over. For Tim, the "reporter" conflated two different bits and took them out of context to force a narrative on to it to be intentionally misleading. Outrage over Kozelek isn't isolating stuff and taking it out of context. Both the Snapes article and the pitchfork review frame his comments/song as part of a pattern of behavior that he's already infamous for, there's nothing dishonest or misleading about how they're portraying him. We all understand the context, and we still don't think he should get a pass. Kozelek's lying in the bed he's made for himself.

    EPISODE 191 — Drizzle, No Apologies

    Another thing I haven't seen talked about yet--Matt and Mookie's argument that it's better to just passively not consume stuff you don't like instead of publicly condemning it is total bullshit. They use the example of a comedian doing just straight up rape jokes all the time, saying he'll develop a reputation for it, audiences won't go to his shows, and clubs will stop booking him. But he'll never develop that negative reputation if no one calls him out on it. Russell Peters the all-stereotypes comedian is an incredibly successful multimillionaire. Jeff Dunham and his horrible racist puppets broke ratings records for Comedy Central. You can't trust in a passive public reaction to quietly get rid of problems as intractable as sexism or racism. If you want people to stop being misogynist, you have to speak out against misogyny, loudly and wherever you encounter it. It's also straight up sickening to hear Matt compare Johnny Rotten spitting on the audience to Kozelek's shtick. Rotten's whole deal was about defying conventions and challenging authority, that's why it was compelling. There's absolutely nothing unconventional or rebellious about a man using sexual insults to shame a woman he doesn't like. That kind of shit is in the Bible. Last thing: people are mad about the hate being directed at Kozelek, but he's a relatively famous musician who's been literally asking people to pay money to listen to him for over 25 years. He should know by now that if he says terrible shit onstage it's going to blow back on him. Can you imagine what this situation has been like for Snapes? Before this she was an anonymous nobody doing her job, and then Kozelek basically told his fans to hate her. Famous comedians are shitting on her because she objected to being called a bitch. Imagine what her inbox and twitter mentions and so on are like now compared to a few weeks ago.

    It's not more common, it just seems like it's everywhere now because it didn't really exist until recently.

    EPISODE 191 — Drizzle, No Apologies

    Cosign 1000%. And it's not just a reminder of real misogyny, it's exactly what real misogyny sounds like. "(Some woman) totally wants to fuck me" is something rapists say about their victims all the time, and they usually get away with it. Throughout most of history misogynists have justified their oppression of women by claiming that women are lust-addled fuck monsters who can't control their sexual desires and ordered society will collapse if they're allowed to make their own choices. Kozelek wanted to put this journalist in her place and he decided to use the oldest laziest most damaging stereotype in human history. He deserves to be heckled.
