    crap like this, because it has the flavor of gossipy tabloid stuff.

    But misogyny and abuse have to be addressed whenever they show up, because the courts can't change society. That's not their job. Their job is to intervene and "resolve" individual issues like this, which often leads to little or no real punishment.

    So it's left up to society to police itself, and that may be best accomplished using "shame." Not just shaming the abuser, but demonstrating that the behavior itself is shameful, and will no longer be ignored or rationalized. Men who read stories like this might not change what they believe, but it may force them to keep those beliefs to themselves, and the actions that they may have contemplated. That may be all the victory we can hope for.

    WTF is a "perfect phone call"? It makes even less sense than a "perfectly fine phone call," which is a painful abuse of the language. Also, if it was such a perfect phone call, why did the White House immediately take steps to limit discussion of it, even before the whistleblower came forward?

    The man is patently unfit for the office. Every one of those Republican Senators know that no further evidence is needed to decide that; Trump freely provides that evidence every time he picks up his fucking phone.

    He could definitely get a job in the Trump administration, stalking and sexual harassment are probably pluses....
