Redbatched & Cumbermayned

Editor by day, author by night. This blog is a visual dairy of my obsession with Eddie Redmayne and Benedict Cumberbatch.

The enthusiasm with which so many male Redditors – and skeezy dudes in general – have greeted this latest leak of celebrity pics makes one wonder if it is not the celebrity of the women in question that is the draw but the lack of consent. It’s a toxic stew of entitlement, resentment, and misogyny. And no amount of donations to prostate cancer research will make up for it.
