Sic ’em, John!

Fuck you, Dustin. Your speech is proof of your acting ability, in your greatest role: Covering My Ass.

Every single fucking man brought to task on this topic has first denied his assholery to women.

If that doesn’t work, he accuses her of being crazy/confused/bent on attention/etc.

If that doesn’t work, he utters some slimey version of “That’s not how I remember it.”

If that doesn’t work, he confesses the crime but declares it was misconstrued, that she misinterpreted what he was really doing, what really happened.

If that doesn’t work, he offers a half-hearted politician’s apology that goes something like  “I’m sorry if you were offended by something I did” which shirks all culpability.

And if that doesn’t work, and the dirt his detectives have dug up on the poor girl is not compelling and the lawyers’ smear campaign hasn’t lodged serious enough doubt in the public’s mind about her, he bows out “gracefully” and moves on.

Meanwhile, there’s a woman out there (often many), violated and wondering when someone is going to look her straight in the eye and say: “It was wrong. It wasn’t your fault. You did NOT bring this on yourself. You deserve a good life.”

How do I know all this? Vagina.

I’ve been there. Over and over and over and over. And my crime? Inspiring somebody’s penis without my knowledge or consent.

Fuck you, Dustin.
