And your response, with knowing ZERO about my me and my positions, is why the left is so frayed and incapable of effecting sustainable change. I DO NOT see AOC as woman but as a soldier in the battle for advancing our progressive cause. Twitter zingers aren’t doing anyone any good and the fact that you, and Cathy miss this point, just shows how broken it all is. I fully accept AOC’s trauma. If is she truly suffering, then let her seek professional help but it seems unlikely that engaging the POS that Cruz is in Twitter battles is the best way to maximize THEIR (AOC’s) unique talent and power to overcome.

It’s just so easy, and even offensive, to fall back on “oh, you are a man” so you are clueless and privileged.

The right is VILE. When the go low, and they always do, don’t engage them on Twitter. That’s my point. Shame on your for linking me, just because I am a man, with that cesspool of rightwing racists and misogynists who do expect privilege. Not all men thing that way and so reading into my comments is just wrong.

A writer, a father and a student of history, the past holds the answers to today’s problems. “Be curious, not judgmental,” at least until you have all the facts
