Today in Men Who Can't Resist Proving the Point

[Content Note: Sexism; racism.]

"All this is by way of saying to women: I'm on your side." No, you really fucking aren't, bub.

Not for nothing, but a white man who publicly insists on telling the world that he "recoils" at women calling for women to be employed in prominent roles across all industries is pretty much making the case for us that we need women from marginalized communities who have a commitment to intersectional leadership to fill leadership roles, because white men keep showing us that they can't be trusted to treat us as their equals.

Or even acknowledge that we have spent millenia being denied that equality. Or care about it, beyond grudgingly "conceding" our complaint.
