I am proud to have opposed those who describe all who oppose them as "Tender Flowers" and "Special Snowflakes".

I didn't want this to be just about Trump, so I thought I'd hold off on sharing this until after the election. I don't particularly care about my personal space, so I knew I didn't have a great mental model for empathizing with women who heard the pussy grab tape and related that to their own experience.

Instead, I thought about how I'd feel if people, especially powerful people, felt they could just grab whatever I and other not-powerful people were holding and walk off with it. Imagine someone walking by and jus think stealing your coffee or phone out of your hands. Imagine further that they thought you'd probably feel starstruck enough to appreciate their attention, and that authorities would mostly agree and be unwilling to rock the boat enough to prosecute.

I don't think it's a perfect model, but it helped me think about how indignant and disempowered a woman might feel. Not every woman has the same reaction, of course, and I assume most of us would agree that pretty theft isn't as invasive as sexual assault, but I felt like this was a thought-experiment which helped get me in the frame of mind of someone who felt vulnerable.

Does your wife ever allow you to carry the testicles ? Holy shit dude, this looks like it was written by post menopausal widow.

The color of justice isn't black or white, it's green. If women women aren't smart enough to realize this, I empathize. We must protect these fragile, childlike creatures.


Is Justice one of those ideas that sleeps furiously?

Also kudos for knocking the intelligence of women women. That was a little funny.

Its called ridicule. I wasn't insulting women, I was insulting you. (or people who hold your beliefs)


It's not less ironic that way.
