QuoteYou could have torrented the show instead but you actually chose to put money in his pocket, I'd say it's pretty clear you've made your judgement.
Quote"men will be men, what are you going to do?", by the sound of it.
Quote from: BeardFaceMan on January 12, 2022, 12:09:25 PMAll it is for me is this - do I want to give my money to someone to help them live a lavish lifestyle of fame and fortune when I think that person is a piece of shit? No, I'd rather give it someone else and get my jollies elsewhere. He's not indisposable, he's not curing cancer, he's making people laugh for an hour and there are plenty of other people about who do that who aren't wankbeasts so my money and attention goes to them instead.

Quote from: Pdine on January 12, 2022, 11:48:19 AMIt's funny, because my personal morality doesn't let me pirate people's work (these days - I am a recent convert). You could say: "...but he's an abuser" however for me again I'm not excused from my societal duties just because someone else has transgressed. Going down that road fucks the whole societal thing, in my opinion.

Quote from: BeardFaceMan on January 12, 2022, 02:06:15 PMYou think it's a societal duty to not steal his work whether he's an abuser or not, but you don't see it as a societal duty to not support an abuser and help them continue with their lavish lifestyle while the people he abused are still suffering because of it (I believe one woman quit comedy altogether because of it)? You don't think it fucks society to say "but he's an abuser? so what? Nothing can ever be done so why bother trying?"
Quote from: Pdine on January 11, 2022, 04:56:45 PMAs a society we believe in rehabilitation yet many of us reject the only mechanism people like CK (uncharged/unconvicted) have for rehabilitation: return to public acceptance.
Quote from: j_u_d_a_s on January 12, 2022, 04:29:54 PMReally bored of Louis CK fans looking for validation. I've seen several posts on various boards asking what people think of LCK now, has he done his time etc. There's always the hidden subtext of "am I a bad person for enjoying his comedy knowing what he did?" And you know what? There's no one size fits all answer. He's dead to me because so much of his act was him declaring how enlightened he was, one of his biggest routines was talking about much of a danger to women men were. If you enjoy his work still then fine, horses for courses. But don't make out that it's a virtue that you're giving him the benefit of the doubt.Sorry you feel the claw of guilt scratching at the back of your head every time you pay for a show by a wankbeast but please, work that out by yourself and stop bothering everyone else for your own "redemption".
Quote from: somersetchris on January 12, 2022, 06:51:18 PMIt just sounds like a guilty conscience, every time. "But how can I stop watching, he's a good comedian!"
Quote from: Pdine on January 12, 2022, 06:27:19 PMHah! yeah!
Quote from: Pdine on January 12, 2022, 12:36:53 PMYeah I can see that. The curing cancer thing is interesting because it highlights how much this is a problem that's at its worst in 'art'. If someone came up with a cure to cancer, patented it, and then was exposed as some kind of abuser or creep, no-one would realistically suggest boycotting the cure.
