Actress, author, and whistleblower Rose McGowan is here to tell you that American culture has been screwed up for a long, long time. She wonders how people can defend a culture that embraces sexual deviants (see: Woody Allen, Louis C.K.) and clearly racist imagery (see: the Washington Redskins name and logo). She muses, too, on why American culture seems to be so bent on putting complex and thoughtful women second place to the likes of, as she puts it, a “slovenly slob” like Adam Sandler. Women deserve better, she posits. And we’re absolutely inclined to agree.

The thing we should do with people who create art that have done terrible things…
Well, if you found out that the head of Johnson & Johnson was a serial rapist that everybody at Johnson & Johnson knew, one way or another, would you still buy that baby powder?
Sorry your heroes are going away. Wah, there are more important things to do. Okay. Sorry. Bummer for you. Wahh.
The construct of society, the raping and killing of women, there’s a channel called ID it’s devoted to 24 hours a day of sexualizing murder victims. Ok? Stop it. Stop it. Stop it. Stop it. That’s my message: just knock it off.
Wah, you don’t get to like Woody Alan. Oh, what a big huge loss for you. I’m sure that compares to the girl who has just been raped that now feels like she wants to hang herself from the balcony. Because that really balances out.
So when people bitch about that, sorry, bummer for you. You don’t watch Birth of a Nation do you? Probably not, because you know it’s racist. So in time these people will be looked at like that.
My job—and others’ jobs that work in kind of what I’m doing—is to put an asterisk next to these assholes’ names for all time.
And if people want to cry about not getting to like somebody they liked when they were kids? Well, get a fucking bigger problem. It’s not that complicated, people. It’s really not. It’s really not. It’s easy. Read a different book. That’s it.
I have so many people fighting me because they want to stay in the system. The system benefits .0001 percent. My ultimate goal is smashing the 99 and the one percent. That’s what I’m here for. And I’m here to do that through thought and raising women up.
And yes, in Children of God, the cult I was born into, and again it’s like oh make a big deal of the cult. I would be talking about Ohio if that happened to me my life, that just was not. But that’s a cult too, and I think you all know it.
That’s the thing: it’s like, “Oh it’s so weird how you grew up.” I think it’s weird how you live. And I think it’s tragic.
Because like ten percent, because there is a lot of free minds that are out there for sure, but we have to be vigilant. What if those ten percent of the world that you look at as the weirdos and the fringe people, what if it’s you guys?
