June 1987, Madonna was rushed to the Cedars Sinai hospital for an X-ray after her then-husband—Sean Penn hit her across the head with a baseball bat. At the time, they had been having a heart-to-heart talk about reconciling.
Madonna did not make an official complaint because Penn was about to serve a short jail term for attacking a film extra and violating the probation he’d been given for punching a fan. It was a decision she would come to regret. In the late afternoon of December 28, 1988, Penn scaled the wall surrounding the Malibu house and found Madonna alone in the master bedroom.
According to a report filed by Madonna with the Malibu sheriff’s office, the two began to quarrel. Penn told her he owned her “lock, stock and barrel”. When she told him she was leaving the house, he tried to bind her hands with an electric cord. Screaming and afraid, Madonna fled from the bedroom. Penn chased her into the living room, caught her and bound her to a chair with heavy twine. Then he threatened to shave her hair. Penn was “drinking liquor straight from the bottle” and the abuse went on for nine hours, during which he smacked and forced Madonna to perform a “degrading sex act” on him.
He went out to buy more alcohol, leaving Madonna bound and gagged. Some hours later, he returned and continued his attacks, then finally untied her. Madonna then fled the house and ran to her car. Penn ran after her and was banging on the windows of her Thunderbird while she spoke to police on her mobile phone. Fifteen minutes later, she staggered into the sheriff’s office.
Wow. I had no idea this had ever happened. Makes me look at Sean Penn a lot differently, even if he’s a more stable less ABSOLUTELY TERRIFYING person now…
Friendly reminder that Sean Penn and other abusive white celebrities are not demonized the way that Chris Brown is and when Rihanna said she still loved Chris Brown people were ready to hang her. But Madonna gets all the sympathy in the world.
Fun fact: Humans are deuterostomes, which means that when they develop in the womb the anus forms before any other opening. Which basically means at one point you were nothing but an asshole.
some people never develop beyond this stage
One of my favorite scenes from The Great Gatsby (1949)
Witnesses report she was violently attacked by a green screen.
Yeah, I bet Greg Lake prays every night for his appearance be back to how it was in the 70s.
screw you, he looks fine. and if that was a remark about his weight, i hope you feel proud of yourself for fat-shaming. god, i am so SICK of musicians i love being picked on for their appearances. THEY’RE AGING, THERE’S NOT A GODDAMN THING THEY CAN DO ABOUT IT.

Gonna start a twitter hashtag #thingstheteapartyblamesobamafor. Let’s see what happens.
(Politicus usa) - The President knows offering a carrot to Republicans in the hopes of a so-called grand bargain is an exercise in futility, but with the American people watching, he is shining a spotlight on Republican intransigence and allegiance to the rich. By offering an olive branch in the form of chained-CPI for Social Security, Republicans can no longer say the President is afraid of his base, or unwilling to meet Republicans half way to solve the nation’s phony deficit crisis, and their immediate rejection to compromise further portrays them as the real problem in Washington.
Please hold your surprise.

haha I like how moffat can just be Jeff Dunham sexist and no one minds
haha okay no you need to sit the fuck down
this is a monk in the middle ages this is completely appropriate humor for the time in relation to modern day tHE WHOLE POILT IS THAT ITS ANACHRONISTIC HUMOR for shit’s sake read a history book sometime
The problem here is not the monk’s reaction. It’s the fact that the Doctor CLEARLY FUCKING NODS.
if you had traveled through time and were in the middle ages i am 289348326% sure you would probably conform to whatever standards real quick
these people thought the black plague could be cured by grinding up dried cow shit and eating it and they thought bathing and forks were tools of the devil
so if the doctor had a fork and someone went “OH SHIT A FORK SATAAAAN” he’d likely immediately throw it away and scream “IT’S OKAY I HAVE VANQUISHED THE EVIL SPIRIT LIVING WITHIN THE FORK”
because he’s the doctor and he just likes to blend in with people as much as he can when he’s going round
there’s areason he’s in a monk cassock and not in his top hat and frock coat here
Yep, he’s assimilating so much that he’s using a phone. Makes a ton of sense.
Also, my main issue is with the nod. He could have just said “It’s a woman.” and allowed the monk to draw his own conclusions. Instead, he nods. There’s a big difference in that.
1. this is a kids show
2. the kids are gonna know that the doctor knows that women are not evil spirits. the kids know the doctor is humoring the poor dumb monk who doesn’t know any better
The argument that “(demographic) will understand that it’s a joke so it’s okay to say” is an incredibly misguided idea. A comedian can assume that their audience will understand that he/she doesn’t mean it when they say “(gender) is evil and bad” but that…doesn’t make it an okay thing.
well of course it’s an okay thing to say there was nothing wrong with it in the first place
it’s not unlike when the doctor explained to martha who was offended by what she perceived as a racial slur that this was just how things were thought of back then
it’s not “wrong” in context (1500s england, medieval era) but seeing it from a modern perspective makes us uncomfortable do you understand what im getting at here
“it’s not unlike when the doctor explained to martha who was offended by what she perceived as a racial slur that this was just how things were thought of back then”
whoa whoa whoa what the fuck
that doesn’t make it not racist/sexist??
This is a show written in 2013 shot in 2013 performed by actors in 2013 for audiences in 2013 and is part of media which reflects the culture of 2013
Sorry but you can’t get a free pass on problematic shit because you’re writing in a time period where it wasn’t questioned because it was still really shitty back then too. This is the stupidest fucking explanation — ESPECIALLY because, as multiple people have pointed out, the Doctor could easily ~assimilate~ without, y’know, being an asshole. He just doesn’t.
in which tumblr overreacts as usual and ruined the episode for me before i even watched it
it’s just a stupid TV show, turn the channel if it offends you, there are plenty of other shows you could be watching
aren’t there bigger problems in this world apart from ONE writer on ONE tv show
^This. And I don’t even watch Doctor Who.
this is the sexiest thing i have ever seen
erm i mean rip
