Ok, fair enough — but the piece does seem to rather glibly dismiss things that have deeply harmed women’s lives. “Sure, we care about #MeToo, but what about all the purient details?

I’m just pointing out that this is not an abstract for the vast majority of women and so it’s hard for us to find this topic particularly funny.
