This article is so fair and even handed it makes me wonder how it made it past the Medium editorial board, given the abject garbage they’ve been brazenly pushing the past month, such as the apparently popular contention that unwanted pregnancies are 100% the man’s fault, and women have zero agency in their own sexual choices.
The Kavanaugh thing was so frustrating for sensible people in the middle, because there are a bounty of reasons to oppose him. He supports torture. He backs the Patriot Act. He pretends the Fourth Amendment doesn’t exist. But the Democrats barely touched on those, and instead trotted out a version of weaponized #metoo that said all women are to be believed without evidence, and anyone who disagrees is misogynist. Sorry. I’m not drinking that kool aid. I’ve known too many women. And I know a lot of women who won’t drink it either, because they too have known a lot of women.
But that whole thing was an eruption of a deeper problem than most people realize. It flows from human biology itself, and can’t be resolved.
