    breaks. You don't seem to know what you're talking about here. I don't think mental illness had jack shit to do with his calculated sadism, but it's not helpful for you to spread misinformation.

      But it is not the default rule of bipolar disorder, as I am sure you would concede.  Far more importantly, there is no evidence (a psychotic break) that is what we're dealing with here.  None at all.  He isn't claiming one, and neither is anyone else.

      Here's where we do agree: I agree with you that mental illness has nothing to do with this guy's behavior. However, clearly mainstream feminists all over the internet are arguing differently in the face of having been reminded "I told you so" by the folks who knew all along, rather than just own up to it and apologize like the Real Women they claim they are.  That's what this piece is about.

      (PS. I really would like an answer to the question I posed to you below.  It was sincere.)
