‘Pill Bill’ Cosby Game Creator: ‘Where There’s Smoke, There’s Fire’

pill bill

The Urban Daily reached out to ?Pill Bill? Cosby game creator, Richie Branson, about why he made the interactive game. Though it may appear to trivialize the many sexual assault allegations against Bill Cosby, Branson is actually seeking to bring more awareness and scrutiny to the embattled comedian:

The Urban Daily: Why did you develop ?Pill Bill:?

Richie Branson: A bunch of friends and I were sitting around having a deep conversation about the whole Cosby scandal and the idea suddenly hit. While the entire Internet was making memes to inject commentary into the discussion, we decided to take it a step further and create a video game.

TUD: Did you intend for the game to be humorous?

RB: The intent was definitely to make the game as absurd and funny as possible, not to trivialize rape, but to use that humor as a motivation for people to continue to talk…

Why I’m not brimming with confidence over Theresa May’s plans to criminalise emotional abuse

November 24, 2014

Another angry woman

Content note: This post discusses emotional abuse

In the latest in a string of policies which sound good and are incredibly cheap to implement, Theresa May will announce plans to put emotional abuse on a par with physical domestic violence. This sounds like nothing to object to, a long-awaited recognition of the seriousness of the coercive dynamics which so often sustain abusive relationships and hit survivors hard.

There is a catch, though, and it’s a catch which means I severely doubt that any perpetrators will find themselves prosecuted for something they have blatantly done: the whole thing hinges on telling the police.

The way the police tend to work is through talking about what happened. You list specific incidents. This happened, and then this happened, and then that happened. Imagine having to do this as a survivor of emotional abuse!

Living in the real world.

Things that happened so long ago were real.
The pain was real. The marks were real.
As I grew bigger, other bad things happened.
Unexpectable things.Unimaginable things.
Things that were all too real.

But the worst things seem to be the things that could be.
The sound of approachingsirens that could be heading to my house.
The boss who could be getting ready to fire me.
The smell that could be smoke.

The cough from my son’s room.
The phone ringing in the night.
The falling buildings.
The impending war.
The news around the clock.

Bad things happen.
But worse things could.
What does happen can be cleaned up or treated or paid for or even buried.
But what could happen must only be dealt with one way.
By refusing to fear what could be.
By accepting that all that matters is…
