    •  how many leftist judges can you cite who used (9+ / 0-)

      this sort of reasoning to ameliorate the punishment of a rapist or even to find him to not be at fault?  Such an action is not that uncommon among conservative judges

      •  Dude, we're talking about leftist guys. (0+ / 0-)

        NOT judges in particular. Get a grip, this is not about males here, it's about the atrocious pervasiveness of systemic misogyny in our "enlightened" society - whatever political side people are on. We don't care if you felt offended on behalf of your awesome manliness because someone spoke the truth on many liberal men being misogynist as hell too.

        (And yes, I'm reacting like this because that seems to be the only response you have to this nauseating case - you commented the exact same thing in another diary pertaining to this story while NOBODY HAD EVEN SAID ANYTHING THERE ABOUT LEFTIST MEN BEING MISOGYNISTS.)

        Please just stop. You're proving FourthOfJulyAsburyPark's point.

        •  I am referring to left leaning judges in particula (0+ / 0-)

          because this is easier to quantify than the "Librul guy down the street who is a pig" for example.  Instead of relying on anecdotal information, decisions can be referenced to buttress your arguments regarding Right vs Left.
          Equivalency is a large problem in public discourse today and worth noting where it is present

          •  All men are judges? (0+ / 0-)

            There, another false equivalency courtesy of entlord.

            And you know what? You're still proving their point by acting like "anecdotal" evidence doesn't matter and that pure facts like all-pervasive misogyny in every layer of society can never be attributed to liberal men (OH NOES). You're apparently thinking only of excusing your own gender instead of going bonkers that people like these still exist and have the right to judge anything. It says a lot about someone's priorities.
