It's About Vagina

“There’s nothing wrong with crying and showing emotion.”

“It’s not the crying. Emotion is fine. It’s that the emotion was she was afraid she would lose. About how she was a victim. It was about her. Where’s the empathy? Where’s the emotion about something other than herself? Where’s the emotion about the world? We want leaders to feel the pain and emotions of others and empathize in a genuine way that prevents them from making heartless decisions. Not be deeply emotional about how hard their lives are in public. That’s pathetic. She’s a pussy. And there’s a reason ‘pussy’ is a pejorative.”

“Wow, you really do have a lot of issues with women.”
