It's been quite the week. The news coming out of the White House is increasingly frantic. I've been reading about staffers hiding in nearby rooms while long streams of curses are screamed in a locked down Oval Office. (Someone apparently scaled the White House fence again.) No doubt about it, some unbelievable shit is going on. The Washington Post and the New York Times are duking it out for a future Pulitzer Prize. (Thank the gods.) Thus, every day a new set of problematic/dangerous information comes out. The frequency has gone from weekly to daily and now hourly. One thing is for certain: Dear Republicans, this shit is going to stain.
To top it off, Roger Ailes died. That man did serious damage to American political discourse and American politics in general. Rupert Murdoch and his money are still around, sadly. Mind you, Ailes had already been removed due to the sexual harassment charges/suits filed against him. The fact that he's dead might mean those women might not get justice. I hope that's not the case.
All in all, I'd say that Toxic Masculinity is having a rough month. Good. I hope it goes down and stays down. No one needs it.
