"So if we don't protest everyone all the time we don't get to protest anyone?" I never asked anyone to protest all the time. I just said it's inconsistent, which it

"How about popular culture has only just turned a corner about rape by men in positions of power?" Which is exactly why I started my comment with "can we expect to see" I based my argument on the premise of future protest with this culture shift.

"How about Cosby is different because there are so many women coming forward?" So rape and abuse is only important if there's a lot of people involved?

"And your analogy leaves a lot to be desired. A person going to a show to be entertained is nothing like the same as a bride or groom at their own wedding." They're both situations where the primary people being disrupted have nothing to do with target of the protest.
