Michael Fassbender is hot, BUT
TRIGGER WARNING: ABUSE
He’s also an abuser.
In 2009, his then-girlfriend filed for a restraining order against him for acts that included once incident where he threw her over a chair, breaking her nose, and another where he dragged her along the side of her car, causing her to blow out a kneecap, twist her ankle, and burst an ovarian cyst.
In 2011, while filming Dangerous Minds, he told Keira Knightly that she wasn’t in a position to dictate whether he spanked her while she was tied up.
Regardless of what his ex or what Keira said to him, his responses were those of a verbal and physical abuser, those of a person who revels in violence against women to fulfill his sense of power.
I know he has a new movie coming out, but I am shocked by the number intelligent, feminist-leaning, critical thinking women on my dash who, despite knowing about his abusive behavior, continue to post pictures of him and spend their money on movies that he profits from.
It really speaks to the power of cognitive dissonance when the same people go from telling off racists to being outraged about Chris Brown (an attractive Black abuser) to glorifying Michael Fassbender (an attractive white abuser).
Do you know what you are saying when you post those Fassy pictures? You’re excusing his behavior. You’re saying that because he’s so attractive, because he’s an actor, what he did doesn’t matter, doesn’t affect how you feel about him. And by extension, you’re excusing other attractive abuser’s behaviors. You’re saying to the present, past, and future domestic violence survivors among your followers that their abuser’s appearance is more important than his actions. You’re saying that the abuse perpetrated by an attractive white man is more excusable than the abuse perpetrated by an attractive Black man.
