Let me give an example of something I am seeing. With 55K shares on Facebook:
That's so obtuse, in so many ways. Let's count:
1. "50 Shades of Grey"? Hadn't seen that talked about in a while. (Wait. There is this.)
2. Boasting of committing what sounds like criminal sexual assault is not the mere saying of words. The size of the outrage isn't about the words as bad words, but the words as evidence of actions allegedly taken.
3. The outrage isn't limited to women. Men, too, are outraged.
4. Many people — women and men — are fine with using the words "fuck" and "pussy" in private conversation.
5. The words "fuck" and "pussy" can be used in sentences that express contempt and disregard for other human beings, and the outrage against Trump's words has to do with what the words express in the sentences actually spoken. Many excellent sentences can be made using those words — sentences that can be received with favor by women who hate what Trump said.
6. People read novels and see movies about all sorts of things, including horrible things. Stories about murder and torture and all kinds of physical and psychological abuse are very popular. The effect is titillating, but that doesn't mean people want these things actually to happen to them.
7. You may love a particular character in a story, because he's interesting and exciting and transgressive, but that doesn't mean you want him to be President. I love the movie "My Dinner with Andre," but Andre Gregory would be a terrible President. Last night, I watched the movie "Willard." Willard is a fascinating character. Watching him bond with rats, train them, gather them into suitcases and carry them into the office to unleash havoc was fascinating... oh, watch out, pussy!...
... but Willard would not make a good candidate for President. Neither would Hannibal Lecter.
8. It would be interesting to see those rats overrun the White House... in a movie. But not in real life!
9. Fantasy time is over. Put down the novel. Turn off the movie. Face the grim reality of picking a suitable President.
10. I said it 2 years ago: I'm for boring. I mean for President. I'm not talking about novels and movies and sexual fantasies.
11. "OK. Yes, we are bored. We're all bored now..."
"... but has it ever occurred to you... that the process that creates this boredom that we see in the world now may very well be a self-perpetuating, unconscious form of brainwashing, created by a world totalitarian government based on money, and that all of this is much more dangerous than one thinks, and it's not just a question of individual survival... but that somebody who's bored is asleep, and somebody who's asleep will not say no?"
