I’ve not once said that men and women are warring camps although I’ve heard you make assertions along those lines more than once. In nearly everything I write I talk about wanting to create a better society for all people. I have never once said “all men” or shown lack of sympathy for anyone’s struggles.

No one actually likes Trump. He’s a despicable human being by any standards, but they like what he represents, which is the pinnacle of the dominance hierarchy, where you live fat and rich, and say and do whatever the hell you want. You step on those who you consider inferior and mock them while you do it. They want what he has — and to get to do what he does.

There really isn’t an actual debate about whether or not our society is in fact a dominance hierarchy, but it really makes no difference to me whether you acknowledge that or not. Plenty of people insist that the world is flat also.
