    Oh, my.... I just don't know what to say.
    Will just have to wait for more info.

    Most interesting is that there are no comments on the bottom of the CBC stories - I went to look.
    Nothing on Jian's twitter or FB accounts - just the last posting about the death of his dad.

    Wow. He wrote a lot on Facebook. I do not know if his lawyers would be pleased.

    Oh, my. Shwa Girl, I'll bet his lawyers vetted it all first. If not, he's stupid.

    Unless he had some sort of binding morals clause in his contract which was very specific, he could very well win a suit. - if, as he said, no complaints were made.

    This is going to be a very long process.

    re: vetted by lawyers -- I hope so too.
    I am not a lawyer, but the Facebook page seemed to have been written from the heart. Not much legalese in there so I assumed it was not given lawyers' blessings.

    All is very fresh right now so I do not know whether to say "yay" or "nay" to his Facebook page post.

    Lol, I had the same reaction when DH shared the story. His name sounded familiar but that was about it.

    He was in Moxy Früvous back in the day (he's a drummer) - they did songs of satire.

    I've listened to him since he started his show ( I listen to the 10 p.m show on radio) - he's really smart, a gentle soul, generous of spirit, and is very liked by all who he's interviewed as well (well, except Billy Bob Thornton who was an arse).
    I love his interview style - and especially the way he does his opening essays - especially more with sensitive and emotional topics.

    I didn't know he was gay til quite recently, and of course that didn't even matter a whit - so I don't care about the BDSM.

    For those who don't know Q, you probably remember this (I still love this song!)

    I have not followed his show or him, but I do know his name. The only interview I ever heard was the Billy Bob one. ( when the sh*t hit the fan ) What I took away from that was Billy Bob had specifically asked prior to them speaking on air that he would only answer questions regarding the band he was in currently, ( so NO questions or comments about Billy Bob the actor would be tolerated ) Of course Jian's first questions were about his acting career....lol. That was apparently why Billy snapped.

    Either he is lousy at picking trustworthy (as in, we are gonna do some heavier stuff, can we fully trust each other to be adults about it, and do I trust you in general to respect me as a person?) partners when engaging in intense sexual relationships or something was not 100% consentual.

    having a terrible time with computer so excuse me for disappearing,

    i don't watch jian as much as i should as he always had
    interesting guests, for instance,,,




    and really if what they did in the bedroom was legal,
    and consensual the hell should care?
    if she or shes/hes have some sort of case against jian,
    well so let it be.
    what does the cbc have to do with that?

    unfortunately, i think this is likely the end of jian
    on the cbc, and i'm thinking that is not neccesarily right
