Feminists are nuts, and also kind of racist, apparently. Last week, some feminists released a video of a woman walking around New York City and being subjected to catcalls and unwanted attention from Black and Hispanic males.
The New York Times wants to know if a law should shield white feminist women by preventing black and Hispanic men from speaking to them, and possibly offending their tender sensibilities.
Stipulated: Men should not behave this way in public; and for the most part, men don’t.
But this isn’t about standards of behavior, which the Left considers oppressive, patriarchal, microaggressive, and all that. This is really about power. This is about left-wing feminists asserting that they should be allowed to behave in public any way they want [ cf. “Slut-Walk.“]. However, they will use the power of the State to punish other people who behave in ways they do not approve of.
They want to act like Lena Dunham and be treated like Queen Victoria.
I guess that’s what you might call Liberal White Privilege.
