And there you go, doing exactly what the author argues against.

Your response is the very kind of response that reproduces and reinforces the very rape culture argued against in this article. Which makes me think you never even read it.

In your effort to defend Kavanaugh, you make excuses for damnable male behavior. Even if it happened as you suggest, it is STILL damnable behavior. And by reiterating those defenses and excuses, you teach our children that that behavior — whether you call it attempted rape or not — is fine by you. Nothing to see here. Move along now.
