Add Scotland to the long list of places he's no longer welcome in.

No disrespect to Beck, but Sean Penn is the OG loser.

He 's really hoping the MAGAs will think it is about the US flag and go see it, not misread that first word as British slang term for cigarette and think it is an LGBTQ folm

Remember when Sean was arrested and convicted of very masculine domestic abuse

It's even NAMED "kilt" because anyone who dared question a male's right to wear whatever he damn well wants ended up that way: kilt dead.

Penn's daughter with Robin Wright and "Flag Day" co-star, Dylan Penn, 30, was present for the interview but reportedly acted distant and went "quiet" and "stared into space" while her father spoke.

Been there, kid.

Men with cowardly genes also beat women. 

Don't they, Sean Penn?
 
2022-01-28 3:40:27 PM  
Guy known to have taken it up the ass and brutally beaten women feels that he has enough distanced himself from those stories to make a homophobic comment.

Heh, apparently he thinks The Rock has cowardly genes, along with pretty much all Polynesians:

Are the cowards the ones that suppress their individuality and go with the crowd?
 
2022-01-28 3:46:19 PM  
I am a man.

By definition, any clothes I wear are a man's clothes.

So if I choose to rock a little girl scout outfit, I am exactly as manly as I was before.

I might also look a bit lot ike Tim Curry dressed as a Wilderness Girl.

You know who wasn't cowardly? The woman who went to El Chapo not aware that the Feds were trailing them.
 
2022-01-28 3:49:15 PM  
But what if you're just wearing a skirt because it gives you more leg freedom while you're kicking the shiat out of your woman like, the way you did to Madonna, Sean?

Is that an acceptable time to wear a skirt?  You're still being what I assume a troglodyte like you considers manly.

There is no skirt gene, just as there is no pants gene, no shirt gene, no underwear gene.

The clothes which are "for men" or "for women" are nothing more than socially reinforced, arbitrary, social constructs. And social expectations change with the society which generates and maintains them.

Why the everloving fark does anyone care what Sean Penn thinks, why does anyone ask, and why do people share it?

What value does his opinion have...on anything?

I do not understand celebrity culture.

I wouldn't mind seeing a member of the Sacred Band of Thebes in a tunic stomp Sean Penn's guts out while giving a demonstration in what constitutes bravery as defined by gender, sexuality or the clothes one chooses to wear.

In high school in Metairie, Louisiana, we were not allowed to wear shorts. Now our high school didn't exactly have great air conditioning, so it really sucked some days to have to wear trousers or jeans to school. Now the girls could wear skirts. They looked much more comfortable in the heat than the guys did. On the really hot days in August, with class room temps getting up there, I think back and wish we would have all worn skirts. Strangely, for gym class we were required to wear the shorts and shirts issued by the school. If a guy wore boxers with the shorts, and most guys at the time seemed to wear boxers, even the averagely endowed risked flashing.

The year after I graduated, they changed the dress code to allow shorts. Something like x inches above the knee was ok.

If I knew for certain which tartan was my great-grandfather's, I'd gladly get a kilt. My mom isn't sure. When he left Scotland, he kind of left it all behind. When I look up the last name, it could be part of more than one clan.

He's always been a dip but he also doesn't seem to have meant it literally, based on the article.

No age has ever been kind to Sean. He's always looked like that.

Furthermore, he noted that the women in his life don't seem bothered by the patriarchy.

"I have these very strong women in my life who do not take masculinity as a sign of oppression toward them," he said
.

No, you had strong women in your life.  They all left you for being an abusive asshole.  Hell, Charlize Theron didn't even let you get that far.  She saw the warning signs and GTFOd.

Sean Penn has always been kind of a useless asshole in every context other than doing his actual job, and on occasion even whilst doing his actual job.

My surprise level would be flatlined at 0% if it turned out he was both an antivaxxer and one of those farking hipsters about being an antivaxxer where he was pretending he has novel reasons for it that make him not like the other girls.  This kinda shiat is basically his speed.

Okay, I'll admit that in this specific case I'm at least 25% surprised, but only because of his inclusion of explicitly eugenicist talking points in an argument that's basically photocopied out of literal Nazi propaganda used to justify murdering gay people.  Usually he's at least enough of a hipster to not directly copy someone else's notes, or at least to avoid the person he's copying being, y'know, literally actual Goering.  There are about a billion forms of this kind of "kids these days suck, back in my day we were big and strong and now they're all pale and weak" shiat can take that isn't literally nazi propaganda from almost a century ago, it's actually kind of... interestingly specific that he beelined for the much narrower combination of "weak genes" and "a massive conspiracy to feminize our men".  I feel like I could probably name some of the works in his personal library off that alone, unfortunately.

... isn't his trolling supposed to be at least nominally left-wing-ish?  What's with this weird Nazbol shiat all of a sudden?  Clean up your brand, asshole.

In two separate interviews this month, the two-time Academy Award-winner and ex of Madonna...

That's an odd bit of trivia to mention in your opening sentence. That was over 30 years ago, he's had two more wives since then, and was married to Robin Write three time as long as her.
 
2022-01-28 4:47:17 PM  
He beats women, but then makes Milk.

He says this dumb shiat, and also lives in Haiti (IIRC) and spends months living in a hovel and helping the people there.

Talk about having both an angel and a devil on your shoulders.

Also, Harry Styles doesn't look like a woman in that article, he looks like a serial killer dressed like a baby.
 
2022-01-28 4:51:06 PM  
What a toxic farkwad.

Men don't need to prove shiat. If you want to be less of an asshole or have a different gender identity at any level then how does that harm the idea of "masculinity."

The same applies to Women and Non-Binaries, whatever their assigned gender at birth.

Penn has always leaned hard left, but he's also always been an abusive violent scumbag, so there's no chance of him cleaning up anything. He's a poison no matter what ideology he's stirred into. The only way he wouldn't make a group worse by joining it is if the group was already too appalling to become any worse. Nazis, the Klan, Spotify management. That kind of thing.

I know Sean Penn has always had this tuff guy rep, but has there ever been any document case of him beating the hell out of anybody except for Madonna?


FTFA

"Sometimes people take their privilege and freedom as a right to be anti-citizen, to be failed citizens," he said. "Those who will search out the kind of bogus science that would give them legitimacy [when it comes to] not being vaccinated."

Well, can't disagree with him there. Broken clock.

How about this "cowardly" man who marched ashore during the D-Day landings wearing a kilt and only carrying a set of freaking bagpipes! The Germans didn't shoot him because they thought he was crazy.

I'm afraid that unless he suddenly goes broke, his old age will be undeservedly very, very comfortable in ways the average person could only dream about. If he was ever going to face a meaningful reckoning for his attitudes and aggression, it would have to have happened years ago when he was much more relevant.

There's a certain type of person who likes being contrarian. They'll go against whatever they think "the Man" is saying. But they don't have any moral compass of their own or any set beliefs beyond selfishness and attention whoring.
