Comedy: ok, I am interested in Dave Chapelle’s “Sticks and Stones” but…
There is a point here: just because sanctimonious people have angry, dumb takes on it does NOT mean that it is good.
That doesn’t mean that it is bad either.
Trump and Sanders How can someone back Sanders and say “if he doesn’t win, I’d just as soon have Trump” when, say, Elizabeth Warren is much closer to him?
It can be the urge to “burn it all down”…anger at how things are.
And, let’s face it, some are just fed up with self righteousness. This sometimes shows up as backlash:
Women say they are being subjected to sexism far more than they used to be, according to a new study out of the University of Colorado Boulder Leeds School of Business — even as they report less overt harassment, such as sexual coercion (“sleep with me and you’ll get a promotion”) and unwanted sexual attention (ogling or fondling).
Women are facing a “massive increase in hostility,” said Stefanie K. Johnson, the business professor who coauthored the study. Research shows that people in power feel threatened when other groups rise up, as women have during the #MeToo era, and that men believe their status declines when women’s rises, which could cause some men to lash out.
Men who don’t want to mentor women or invite them to after-work gatherings can now justify these actions, or lack thereof, by saying they’re trying to protect themselves, and women, from suggestions of impropriety. Beyond being detrimental to a woman’s career, this type of gender exclusion “perpetuates the idea of women as other,” Rikleen said.
Of course, the article I linked to is riddled with old feminist claims (e. g. “need to subjugate women”) but it could be a matter of being sick of the finger wagging.
