The singer’s abortion story raises questions that highlight the exploitation that has haunted her career.
Thanks for laying it out so clearly. It's so cringy for me to remember listening to his song and liking it and him; I'm so glad she's finally getting to speak for herself.
What a great piece. The whole thing is heartbreaking.
Timberlake makes me cringe, but he probably isn't a worse guy than most. The disrespect, the joking about a former sexual partner in public, the twisting of a misogynist narrative for some dude's own gain was - is still - such a dominent feature of our culture. Calling Timberlake on it helps - I think we all are OVER it and it's nice to have the words to express what's disgusting here.
