I find it interesting how keen we are to vilify 'freaks', and define them by their eccentricities. Yet often when the outcome is something as serious as a suicide, or a breakdown, then we quickly do a U-turn. We deem the case 'tragic' and retrospectively show pity.
So. I was on the internet and saw a link to a terrible article (read it here, if you must). It's from a Fox entertainment website and the gist is that 'these days' women in comedy have to be fuckable to be funny.
