Distressing news re: Michael Gira
This makes me sad. Michael Gira, who I have interviewed and met on a couple of occasions, is now admitting to at least part of what he has been accused of by Larkin Grimm; he disagrees in the interpretation of events and the issue of consent and mutuality, but his new statement is different enough from the initial "slanderous lie" reaction that it seems to put him on a slippery slope, and his reputation is going to get damaged from this regardless of whatever actually happened. Larkin Grimm's response is also sobering, and included on that link. I don't want to say more just yet, but this one hurts.
