A Conversation on Believing Women
The Left still defends Democrat powerful men against crowds of women, even when those women are liberal too.
Is it ever going to change?
Will #MeToo mean anything at all in making things better for women? How can it when liberals and progressives are using the self-same tactics and talking points to defend Cuomo which continue to be employed by conservatives and republicans to defend Trump? What is it now — eight women accusing Cuomo? Yet still, the best Left can seem to muster is that it’s a matter of degrees of badness — in other words: What women accuse Cuomo of isn’t as bad as what women accuse Trump of doing. Because Cuomo is our guy… Because our guy isn’t as bad as their guy, it seems women are expected to just give our guy a pass on his imposition of power over our space, our time, our feelings, and/or our bodies. Yet again, women are expected to “Just shut up and take it.”
