If the officer thought Brown were involved in a robbery, the incident wouldn’t have started the way it did. The Chief’s inclusion of that detail was such a hamfisted, pitiful attempt at a diversion, and it was obvious that he was very, very uncomfortable while speaking, with lots of stuttering and long pauses.

Ooh lord, “I spent my 30s with a slowly escalating fear that I would never find a partner. My anxiety wasn’t merely about getting older and supposedly less desirable in our youth-obsessed culture.

Very well put. I couldn’t stand her column prior to this, and certainly won’t be able to now. Her responses aren’t insightful advice, but ugly, irresponsible reflections of pigheaded societal attitudes. I don’t know what she thinks she’s offering people with this, or how she could possibly feel that this was “advice” of any kind.

EY BRUNO: The point is that women aren’t falsely accused at the rate YOU think they are. These mythical life-rending happenings in which women have wrecked the lives of men (oh, and other women – how deep of you to think of that!) don’t actually happen at the rate that rape-deniers say they do. The [...]
