We would have loved to have gotten to this earlier, before the original poster deleted her tweet and took her account private. Kate Manne says she’s a writer and philosopher at Cornell and is the author of the book, “Down Girl: The Logic of Misogyny” and “Entitled: How Male Privilege Hurts Women” (just in case you thought her tweet was a parody).

In the story, which may have been included in “Highlights,” Bruce is sad, and three girls of different races try to cheer him up by patting his leg, bringing him a toy car, and giving him a hug. Azaria might be a boy, though.

“So girls of every race are responsible for catering to the emotional needs of white boys? It begins.”

Recent events have proved that society should pay less attention to the emotional needs of white boys … that ends well.

This editor’s children have graduated, and he’s relieved he’s not sending his white son to public school so he can learn that he’s the root of all problems.

You’ll have to read her book for the answers. It was named one of the best books of the year by The Atlantic:

In this bold and stylish critique, Cornell philosopher Kate Manne offers a radical new framework for understanding misogyny. Ranging widely across the culture, from Harvey Weinstein and the Brett Kavanaugh hearings to “Cat Person” and the political misfortunes of Elizabeth Warren, Manne’s book shows how privileged men’s sense of entitlement—to sex, yes, but more insidiously to admiration, care, bodily autonomy, knowledge, and power—is a pervasive social problem with often devastating consequences.

With wit and intellectual fierceness, Manne sheds new light on gender and power and offers a vision of a world in which women are just as entitled as men to our collective care and concern.

And now she’s nuked her account because of all the misogyny.
