    Yeah, this is when public shaming is warranted.

    Well. Something good came out of a Me Too takedown besides the outing of a creep



    James Beard awards are the premier American (?) food industry awards. The food industry has a long way to go in its treatment of women, but acknowledging the pain in a piece that pans one of the fallen in their field is a heartening baby step.

    Read the essay. I think I love her.

    Here’s a thing that finally happened. We’ve all heard the Biden stories, right? About him being “handsy” with women and even girls. I’d wondered why no one had told a story that put him firmly into a #MeToo context.

    Until now.

    I believe her. And I think Joe should bow out.

    Steve's link at the Cut

    Even if his behavior wasn’t violent or sexual, it was demeaning and disrespectful.

    ...

    Is it enough of a transgression if a man touches and kisses you without consent, but doesn’t rise to the level of what most people consider sexual assault?

    ...

    I’m not suggesting that Biden broke any laws, but the transgressions that society deems minor (or doesn’t even see as transgressions) often feel considerable to the person on the receiving end. That imbalance of power and attention is the whole point — and the whole problem.
    If what Joe has done (and I believe he's done it. Fuck, as the article points out there are videos!) isn't sexual, why isn't he nuzzling men?

    As I posted in the 2020 thread, Biden's going to ruin the "good" reputation he has now out of ambition. It's not 2008 any more and he doesn't have Obama's reflected glow.

    I have no idea why that tweet didn’t embed right. Oh, well.

    And the other thing is that, if you nominate a “handsy” guy to run against Trump, how do you motivate women? And the Ds HAVE to motivate women.

    This guy seems awful (he retweets a lot of terrible right wing wackos), but it doesn't mean he's wrong about this



    Watch the innocence disappear in real time in little girls' eyes. Watch them discover that dark place you have to go to around larger adult men. That vacant stare. The forced smile. The meek politeness.

    I'm not entirely sure what he's doing is sexual. He could be trying so hard to be folksy that he comes across as a pervert when he's just creepy. But man, watching that... it makes one almost miss Cheney and Quayle.
