The loopy lefties have decided en masse that they will no longer tolerate the use of power or status to procure sex with women. No doubt some of the allegations against the men accused of this behavior are false. No doubt some are true. No doubt I’m being too kind to women when I refer to this behavior as “exploitative sex”.
For me, the most despicable aspect of the entire furore is the hypocrisy of the Left. With full knowledge of the exploitative sex that was in full swing at the time, hypocrites such as Meryl Streep dumped down on Trump and his supporters with a load of sanctimonious preach. Back then, tacit acceptance of exploitative sex was still the left-wing vogue, and surely everyone should know by now that lefties kow-tow to vogue like a mob of conformist sheep.
Now the sheep are being rebuked for their complicity. The tacit acceptance of exploitative sex has gone out of vogue. Are generations of man-hating feminists the reason for this, or is something more fundamental going on?
I found this comment at ricochet.com “Our Imperial Elite Unmasked”
“America’s getting old. She used to love a sexy guy. Oh, she knew about Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson and, as you point out, Clinton. But now her reproductive years are drawing to a close, she’s repulsed by what she used to find titillating. She can’t believe she ever cared so much about it. The life-force sings in her no more.”
So which came first, the feminism or the dying of the song?
