It is right that men are being called out for their sexual misdeeds, and it is right that they are suffering consequences for them. It is absolutely obscene, however, that the cultural backlash they receive has anything to do with whether they’re a fucking Democrat or a fucking Republican. As far as I’m concerned the fact that rape victims are leveraged in political partisan games is itself a product of rape culture. Our rapes are not weapons for your dumb tribal dick battles. A woman’s suffering is not yours to use just as a woman’s body is not yours to use.
…This is not about hurting men or tagging an entire gender back for the troubles men have caused us. This is about finding our way out from the convoluted tangle of thousands of years of deeply unconscious cultural patterns which brought us to the evolve-or-die point in which we have found ourselves as a species. We will not transcend our patterns if we remain locked in ancient and oppressive gender dynamics, and if we do not transcend our patterns they will carry our species into the arms of extinction.
