    I’d say be very careful of what celebrities say; focus more so on what they do or don’t do.

    Actions v.s. words.

    Should go without asking: What would a radical feminist be doing right now about the Amnesty International decision?

    Emma Thompson, one of the signatories of this letter ( http://catwinternational.org/Content/Images/Article/617/attachment.pdf ) I would gather would be a bit angry at the “decision”; along with all the other celebrities.

    Can’t seem to find (if there is, I apologize) Thompson, for that matter any of the celebrity signatories, doing anything past that letter and Amnesty Internationals “vote”.

    These celebrities have the power and wherewithal to raise holly fucking hell, but seem to do little to nothing at all when they are needed the most.
