Reflections on Joe Biden, Tara Reade, #MeToo, and our Hysterical Culture
You are brilliant Claire. You put your finger on the pulse. Did you really speculate Barrett might replace PBG or did you slip that in later? Kudos from Canada.
I'd like a weekly pass. It is not clear how I get one.
Not convinced when an author cherry-picks the most extreme outlier example like that of Heckman. Outlier = Out, liar!
Rather regressive to call the "Joe Biden and Tara Reade" an "idiotic story" based on that lackadaisical outlier example. There is certainly a difference between calling a picture "not bad" and penetrating a woman in her vagina without her consent (as Reade as stated), the later of which meets the definition of "forcible rape" by the FDA as below:
"The penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim."
Calling claims of "forcible rape" idiotic speaks much about your stone-age thinking patterns. Not to mention your title reeks of sexism too. "Hysterical"? Really? Are you unaware of the origins of that word?
PS: Geologists at Harvard are mining this prehistoric article for dinosaur bones.
Note to self: This is Part I
