Actually I was thinking the same thing.

When feminists argue that all men should “take ownership” of the bad behavior of others, I’m reminded the far right response to the question: How would you feel, as say a person of color who has never broken the law, perhaps put yourself through law or medical school, but still get stopped, questioned & frisked by the authorities with PC being entirely your skin color?

Their answer, inevitably: “I’d tell my acquaintances to stop committing crimes & start becoming productive members of society.”

If it’s racist to assume that every Black or Latino person, regardless of his or her station in life, must pal around with homeboys & OGs (& it certainly is racist), then why’s it okay to assume that every man hangs around with sexual psychopaths, abusers & pathological liars?

LA born & raised, now I live upstate. I hate snow. I write on healthcare, politics & history. Hobbies are woodworking & singing Xmas carols with nonsense lyrics
