The c-word to many women is about as nasty a word that can be used towards them, it just has a far more negative connotation than dick even though they are both derived from the slang for each gender's private parts. So your point has validity in theory, but really not in practice.

i hope we hear from some of our other toronto friends soon. everyone i know personally is safe.

everything points to a guy with mental illness (there is a photo of a facebook post going around that hasn't been verified but seems to show him praising elliott rodgers) trying to get a grand theft auto-style wanted level and then commit suicide by cop. he hit 25 people and then screamed at the cop to kill him, said he had a gun and acted like he was drawing it, etc. the toronto police department really sucks but the officer who arrested him on his own without a scratch is a motherfucking hero.

Ok here and I haven’t heard any bad news about people I know. I went to that location to get a passport for my son recently, don’t live near there but still hits you hard.

Oh, and he's apparently connected with some creepy misogynistic right-wing group online, so ............. yeah.

I read this a few years ago, and would recommend it to anyone interested in the history:

Is anyone watching Surviving R Kelly? I started this weekend with a couple of episodes, it was so disturbing to me that I had to stop.

I don't understand why he's not in jail. I agree with what so many said in the series, if he did these things to white girls he would most likely be in jail.

Some police departments have been protecting him too, I guess he's paying them for that? And the music industry-was glad to see Lady Gaga finally speak out against him. John Legend was the only one who would appear in the series and denounce R Kelly.

What he has done, and continues to do, makes me sick. It's an outrage.

I have yet to see that documentary, but I've been hearing some of the stories coming out from it. On the one hand, I'm stunned that he's still out there not facing any punishment, but on the other hand, I'm not surprised, too, because, well, as #MeToo has proven, that's sadly way more common than a lot of people realize .

Sounds like the law is FINALLY coming for him, though, which, better late than never. I hope they throw the book at him and he winds up in jail for the rest of his life.
