Ronan Farrow is worse than I thought

I commented that Ronan Farrow is in the business of making reckless accusations, and that he is a creep, but his situation is more disturbing than I thought. His real name is Satchel Allen. His father is thought to be Woody Allen, a well-known neurotic genius. His mother Mia Farrow is much stranger.

According to this, Mia Farrow may slept naked with him, and breast-fed him, up to about age ten. Furthermore, she had his legs broken, extended, and reset repeatedly in order to make him taller, and enhance his future political career. He ended up as a homosexual. Now 16% of Gen-Z identify as LGBTQ, so nobody thinks that is strange anymore.

He is a pitiable character. He assembles hearsay, distorts the facts, and reports MeToo stories. He is way too damaged, and way too unreliable, for anything he says to be believed.

When Mia Farrow was interviewed about some of her outlandish accusations, she said: “It doesn’t matter what’s true. What matters is what’s believed.” Ronan/Satchel recites her lies along with other seemingly-bogus MeToo accusations. I get the impression that is his position also -- truth does not matter, only what is believed. He symbolizes much of what is wrong with our society today.

A NY Times article on a bogus college accusation reports:

The story highlights the tensions between a student’s deeply felt sense of personal truth and facts that are at odds with it.
The student was a Black immigrant girl, from a landlocked African country, trespassing in a Smith college cafeteria. Her hysterical complaint threw the college into turmoil for months.
In addition to the training sessions, the college has set up “White Accountability” groups where faculty and staff are encouraged to meet on Zoom and explore their biases, although faculty attendance has fallen off considerably.

The janitor who called campus security quietly returned to work after three months of paid leave and declined to be interviewed. The other janitor, Mr. Patenaude, who was not working at the time of the incident, left his job at Smith not long after Ms. Kanoute posted his photograph on social media, accusing him of “racist cowardly acts.”

The only racists were the misbehaving African girl, and the college administrators who went out to punish Whites.

Echoing Mia Farrow, the newspaper astutely observes that complaining women often have a "deeply felt sense of personal truth" that is totally false.

Toy companies are getting woke:

“Hasbro is making sure all feel welcome in the Potato Head world by officially dropping the Mr. from the Mr. Potato Head brand name and logo to promote gender equality and inclusion,” the company said in a statement on Thursday. ...

Rich Ferraro, the chief communications offer for Glaad, an L.G.B.T. advocacy organization, applauded the change, saying it was part of “a larger movement towards greater diversity and inclusion in toys and media aimed at kids.”

In 2016, Mattel announced that it was expanding its Thomas the Tank Engine franchise by adding more female train characters and friends from countries such as India, Brazil and Mexico.

Update: I see that HBO has a new documentary on Allen v. Farrow, and it shows newly-released video of a 7-year-old girl making coached accusations. I have not seen it.
