So I am sure anyone who is anyone has heard about the Stephen Fry debacle. I have no idea if it is true or not. I just assumed it was someone arsing up his comments as it has been done before.

Stephen Fry is a comedian. Perhaps he was being tongue in cheek? Facetious maybe? I can’t imagine someone so intelligent and worldly as SF not thinking women can enjoy sex.

Even if he did mean it, he has the right to his thoughts and opinions, and people have the right to disagree. What people shouldn’t have the right to do, is to be a dick and send him hate tweets and messages. That is bullying, and as adults we should be above that, especially if we are trying to make a point to the youth of today who HAVE been bullied and hurt by words.

Stephen Fry needs to come back to Twitter to continue this dialog over free speech and rights, and views on sex. He has the power to reach millions, and influence people’s thoughts on the subject in a positive manner whereas I do not. It doesn’t mean I can’t try.

Stephen Fry, please come back to Twitter. My Twitter feed isn’t the same without you.

If you agree or disagree, take it up in the comments.
