You know, in all this hubbub, I never stopped to think, “But what about Olivia Benson?”
In the criminal justice system, sexually based offenses are considered especially heinous, lol jk no, in real life women are blamed because of their clothes, blood alcohol content and every other reason people can stick on them and their attackers are handed a lollipop and a hair ruffle along with a semi-stern warning to try and not do this again, and then we make them president.
Law & Order: SVU has had a ripped-from-the-headlines episode filmed for some time, starring Gary Cole as “a politician whose campaign goes haywire when several women go public with damaging accusations.” Allegedly it’s about Donald Trump, but the first line of this promo is “I’m a handsome, charming millionaire” so it actually might not be.
Anyway, apparently it’s frowned upon to talk about president-elects and all the rapes and assaults they did, so the twice-delayed episode, originally set to air Oct. 26, has been pulled from the schedule.
We could say that maybe if the episode aired it would have done something, but we all know that’s not true.
Um. Have a nice day or something.
