Gurl, please…when in HELL have you been silent in the last few months? You been all over Social Media like a Drag Queen at a Sephora Clearance Table…
Bless her heart!
OK…I should back up and ‘splain. I just got an “urgent” press release about Rose McGowan, the actress who has been a major player in the recent “Harvey Weinstein/Hollywood Sex Abuse Scandals” of the last few months where several members of the film and television industry, mostly female identified, have come forward naming names of Hollywood power brokers guilty of sexually harassing women. McGowan has been one of the most prominent and vocal of the accusers who actually helped propel the original disclosures by intimating she had been a victim of the very powerful Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein.
Since this story broke a few months ago, McGowan has earned praised and many followers for her fierce frankness in disclosing her own personal encounters with sexual harassment in Hollywood but has also come under attack for using the situation to promote her new career as an activist as well as for an unfortunate confrontation with a trans activist at a book event in New York City on January 31st.
Today, I get this email with the header:
“Press Alert: Rose McGowan Breaks Her Media Silence in Exclusive 1 Hour Interview on Queer Streaming Network, Revry”
Is not quite 3 weeks much of a media silence?
Anyway, Rose is doing this interview with transgender activist and media personality, Ashlee Marie Preston to clear the air. Here’s the whole press release…if you’re so inclined to find out the real story, then tune in to Revry.com on Friday.
Personally, I think Rose is pretty badass for speaking out against the sexist bullshit of Hollywood but she also has a tendency to lose her shit and wage in non-productive flame wars on social media. She needs to learn how to wage her battles better and not get bogged down in the caca…it distracts from the central issue…
Takin’ down those dumbass sexist grabby men!
Sexuality, PTSD, Cults, Russian Bots, Trans Paid Plants, Trump, Hillary Clinton, Gay Men, Female and Hollywood Complicity…all these topics and more in this in-depth, exclusive one hour interview on queer streaming network, Revry’s “SHOOK with Ashlee Marie Preston”.Tune In Friday 2/23Exclusive One Hour Interview on Revry.comTrailer here: https://www.youtube.com/

McGowan vulnerably opens up like never before about her healing and the toll her battle has taken. Host Ashlee Marie Preston shares “While some can only see Rose’s imperfections—I’m able to see her for her intentions. I know what it’s like to operate on a different frequency than everyone else. I’m looking forward to coming together with an open heart and mind.”About Host – Ashlee Marie PrestonAshlee Marie Preston is a Media Personality, Writer, Speaker, and Civil Rights Activist.

(@ashleemariepreston, @ashleempreston)“I was discriminated against on the job for being trans; fired, became homeless, engaged in survival sex work, became addicted to drugs, and experienced chronic sexual assault and violence while on the streets. I maintained my sanity, wasn’t killed like many of my friends, have never been incarcerated, and recognized that it’s my social responsibility to help restore honor and dignity to those like me and others who exist on the margins of society. I use media to amplify the voices of those who’ve been silenced, and lead difficult conversations around what it means to be fully liberated and how we all can actively become better allies to those in despair.” —Ashlee Marie Preston
