@nina thank you for the illustration.

I wasn't sure if it's okay to still love Bill Cosby's ancient stand up comedy recordings.

I'm gonna say yes, now. And I'll unashamedly cite quotes when one of his bits resonates with a discussion. :^b

@progo It’s really up to you. There are people who rigidly believe it’s not OK and makes you a monster, but you get to be in charge of your own values. “What other people think of me is none of my business.”

But dang, people are really clueless about how culture works.

@nina @progo

Social media makes it so easy for the virtuous to hurl insults at others who fail the impossible purity tests. I was only saying earlier today on another thread that the art and artist are not the same thing. We each need to make decisions about the things we like and the people we like.

It will be interesting to see how the current social justice warriors behave in the years ahead when it is them and their heroes who are being shown to be corrupt and depraved. And it will happen as each generation sets it own social rules and judges the earlier ones.

Ha ha. That's not virtue. But I don't think you meant to say it is virtue.

Yes, I should have put virtuous in quotation marks as I think this is how they see themselves and no one should be the judge of their own virtue, but I think you understood what I was saying. 😊
