3. This issue is bigger than elections. Men in general need to get their shit together.

Your point is taken, but this is also an opportunity to have a wider discussion; I would hate for it to get lost in partisan politics.

5. Yes, but at this point all I'm saying is for these men to take themselves out right now.

7. I wish I could believe that sexual harassment and assault followed party lines...

...but I can't. We can be outraged when our Dems are revealed to be flawed, but let's not be too surprised.

I'm partisan enough to believe in an extra layer of hypocrisy common in Republican candidates and officials--their very platform is abusive and disdainful on its face, particularly regarding women and minorities--that seems to make their crimes more numerous and worse. Whataboutism, though, is going to have a very good year, because for every eight GOP predators unmasked, there will probably be three Democrats.

(Participation and severity may vary. Consult your local women for details.)

9. I know. Am sure there are still women harassers but not as prevalent.
