We basically have to run this site like a Bernie Sanders campaign now since we’ve been blacklisted by Google and Facebook, due to the fact that rabid SJWs keep reporting our posts. Getting blacklisted by Google is a death sentence for most websites, since it’s much harder to monetize. And we all know the damage Facebook has done. We’re never going to stop fighting for free speech, but in the meantime the best way for turtle riders to fight back is to donate to the cause. Without you people none of this is possible.

CNN: A beauty queen gave up her title after a skit was performed at the Miss Massachusetts competition that made fun of the #MeToo movement. Maude Gorman was one of the contestants in the Miss Massachusetts pageant earlier this month, when a crack about #MeToo was made on stage. Gorman, who said she was gang raped when she was 13, said the moment she heard the joke that she “instantly knew I had to do something. It was going to eat away at me if I didn’t,” she told CNN. She resigned from her title of Miss Plymouth County 2018 last week, writing on Instagram: “While I’m grateful for the opportunities that @missamerica creates for young women, I am also internally conflicted; as the #metoo movement was mocked on stage during the final competition of Miss Massachusetts. As both a survivor, and advocate for victims rights and sexual violence on a whole, I refuse to stand idly by and simply ‘let this go.'”
Today, I officially resigned from the title of Miss Plymouth County 2018. While I’m grateful for the opportunities that @missamerica creates for young women, I am also internally conflicted; as the #metoo movement was mocked on stage during the final competition of Miss Massachusetts. As both a survivor, and advocate for victims rights and sexual violence on a whole, I refuse to stand idly by and simply “let this go”. Instead, I will stand up for every individual who has ever had the courage to speak out; and for every person who felt liberated by the #metoo movement. I will not allow ANYONE to take away that empowerment and liberation, or make it anything less than what it is: AMAZING. #metoo #missplymouthcounty #nomore #rainn #surviveandthrive
In what the Observer described as part of the comedy sketch, a woman is onstage, kneeling and talking about how Miss America has scrapped the swimsuit portion from its competition.”Miss America did away with the swimsuit competition,” the woman says in the skit. “We may have very well seen the last ever swimsuit competition on stage. It’s very upsetting and I’m trying to understand, God, why it happened.”
“Me too, Amy,” replies a man whom the Observer described as dressed as God and holding a #MeToo sign.
That’s it?? That’s offensive? You can’t even use #MeToo in a satirical sketch that specifically relates to the pageant you’re doing the sketch for? This apparently triggered ol’ Maude (and possibly her sisters Agnes and Gladys) to the point where she began clutching her pearls so hard they’re now permanently indented in her hands……
The crowd cheers and laughs, and the skit continues. Gorman said she was backstage when it happened.
“Nobody saw the skit because we were backstage, but we could all hear it,” she said, about the contestants. “I instantly knew I had to do something. It was going to eat away at me if I didn’t… we were all shocked. We said, ‘Oh my god. I cannot believe that just happened. Did that just really happen?'”
The Miss Massachusetts organization, which is preliminary to the Miss America Pageant, posted an apology on Facebook.
“The Miss Massachusetts Board of Directors offers our sincere and heartfelt apology for those offended by Saturday night’s skit. The skit was not in the script and was not authorized by the board. Moving forward, we will review all content with future emcees and other participants prior to our show to be sure offensive or potentially offensive content is not allowed.”
Gadzooks!! Uhhhh ma Gahhdd!! Uh lock tudally cont buhlove that jus hoppen. Lock, duh they think dis is lock uh juk uh something?
And this is the slippery slope of #MeToo. It had a purpose, and it’s a good thing that victims of sexual assault and harassment feel comfortable coming forward. But this? If you’re triggered by this harmless Dad joke then you’re not ready for grownup world, and you’re trivializing legitimate things that should be called out.
Of course the real reason ol’ Maude is doing it is for the attention. She’s from Hingham, which is one of the wealthiest towns on the south shore. And Maude is really into Maude.
No one would give a shit about this competition if she didn’t make it all about her. She couldn’t just stop doing the competitions, she had to announce it in dramatic white girl style on Facebook and Instagram. Now she’s reveling in the CNN fame:
Thank you @cnn for sharing my story, and allowing me to be a voice for others. It has been a crazy few days, and I thank everyone who has reached out to me to show support. Please, never be afraid to stand up for what you believe in and be the change you wish to see in this world. As Margaret Mead once said, “never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has” ❤️
Because….of course CNN is buying this up.
But the fact of the matter here is that Maude is clearly quite impressed with herself and her wokeness:
And because of #MeToo we have to say how brave and wonderful she is for getting so offended by a harmless skit:
A hero? Oh for fuck’s sake.
Newsflash – you participated in an event for years that specifically excluded girls and women based on their looks. You never would’ve had the opportunities you did if you were 30 pounds heavier. You excelled at it specifically because your body is a 10.
You can tell yourself that you did well because you answered their questions well and were well rounded. I’m not saying you’re not. But the fact of the matter is if you never would’ve been given that opportunity were it not for the fact that Abi is thinking about scissoring you right now.
Of course if you dare point out that it’s not offensive it’s only becase you’re white and male:
Oh Brian, you so woke! You’re one of the good ones!!
Of course the reason this harmless joke about #MeToo triggered her is because she claims she was sexually assaulted when she was 13. I’m not saying she wasn’t, but if you don’t blindly believe her, despite any lack of evidence, you hate women. She was featured in the Globe three years ago talking about what happened in her hometown of Hingham:
So let me get this straight. She was 13 and at the park with her friends when three drunken older boys came over. Her and her friend ran, presumably because the boys were threatening them. The friend escaped, she didn’t, and she was then gang raped in a public park by them. And she never told the cops or her friend what happened.
I mean….we have to believe everything now? Are you honestly telling me the friend who ran for her life away from these three violent and drunken Hingham boys said nothing to anyone? She didn’t think to call the cops? If she didn’t think they were dangerous then why did she run? I’m not saying this didn’t happen, I’m just saying that from my experience at Turtleboy I’ve learned one valuable lesson – people lie for attention. It happens all the time. And when the story doesn’t make any sense like this, you should be allowed to question it. If #MeToo doesn’t allow people to question it without getting their heads chopped off by woke psycho feminists, then #MeToo should be mocked too, and I’m glad it was.
Even if this story were true, there’s no way in hell this harmless joke triggered her this badly. This clambox is in a line of work where sex appeal is important, and she clearly craves the spotlight, and enjoys being told how strong and brave she is.
Saw this in the comments on WCVB:
Also she admits that she bombed out of boarding school because they thought she was drinking and doing drugs…
I’m not saying she wasn’t sexually assaulted. I’ll never outright call someone a liar without proof to the contrary. But could it POSSIBLY be that she was at a public park with some 16 year old boys, pounding down some wine coolers with them, and one of them grabbed her boobs? To me that seems a lot more plausible than a gang of rapists wandering around the mean streets of Hingham looking for 13 year olds to gang rape.
The bottom line is that the other 13 year old would NEVER be able to keep that a secret for this many years. I refuse to believe that. I was a 13 year old girl once too. If I saw those boys in my high school I would’ve told the world what animals they are. I would’ve mentioned that time I fled for my life because they were trying to assault me to everyone.
So if this mystery girl is out there and would like to corroborate this story, we’d be happy to hear from them. Then we can put the teens (who are in their 20’s now) on blast like they should. We LOVE to blow up assholes like that. So please, let us get justice for you Maude. You’re so brave for getting offended by this harmless skit and you’re totally NOT trivializing a very serious issue that has affected millions of other women.
