  • If I was rapey, I’d go for someone out of my league; like a 8 or 9 woman, not a 2 or 3.

  • As someone who admired Silverman as an atheist activist I find it sad to witness what he has now become. His comments on George Floyd are particularly callous. Anti woke or not, show some humanity David.
    Fascinating interview though Stephen.
