Judgy Bitch has a keen observation of last week’s debate and what it means to interrupt a woman these days:
The mewling over Donald Trump’s ‘misogyny’ in last night’s debate has begun. Trump interrupted Hillary, you see, and if you interrupt a woman, that means you hate not just her, but all women, everywhere. When a woman speaks, men must remain silent and never correct or contradict her mid-sentence because that makes her feel intimidated and the poor, weak, timorous thing might collapse from the sheer, unparalleled hatred of it all. No one seems to mind that the moderator interrupted Trump 41 times, and Clinton just 7 times, but Trump is a man and he can take it, right? Hillary is a mere woman, and one must treat her gently.
Hillary can’t handle being interrupted, but she can handle Vladimir Putin?
I do notice out in regular society that men do not interrupt women often and if they do, women often get a snarky angry look that cuts off conversation. Often now, men just stay silent, depending on their goals or they keep their thoughts to themselves. That is no way to live, but probably safer in a society that sees men as perps and women as victims.
