I woke up this morning thinking with incredulity about the fact that so many of us are willing to engage in sincere, polite debate with people who still think this administration is ok. Can't figure out if it's our noblesse oblige, or if we're gaslit.

Out at brunch - yeah, be jealous - and there's a table of college boys discussing their hangovers and who they had sex with, and a table of college girls discussing renewable energy & cutting down waste on their campus. Yup, it's time for women to run this place now

Most of them have dug themselves so deeply into delusion, their best hope is that they can slink off to a cave and do penance. But they won't. And their sycophants will carry on.

"A church that badly needs to offer healing to survivors of sexual assault must stop suggesting that those victims would be better examples of holiness if they’d fought harder."

I teach my kids that what we do, especially to others, has lasting consequences. But it looks like the comes with a "get out free" pass for assault...if you're a straight white guy.

One I saw today: "well the adolescent brain isn't finished developing til the early 20s." Wonder if this guy would allow the same excuse if a teen rape victim sought abortion?

Hint: of allllll the ways you could dismiss the allegations, “sounds like a harmless prank” & “boys will be boys” are the absolute *worst*.

Sadly, true. But not something we want to encourage.

With all the dudes out there defending sexual assault as "normal," I'm thinking I'd best keep on investing in martial arts training for my daughter.

Not that Ulysses isn't da bomb. But sometimes all you need is one bomb. Not lots of little mini-bombs.

You spend nine years doing academic writing in university, with a dissertation on Joyce, it's gonna take writing two pop novels and imbibing a lake of booze before you get WRITING PLOT.
