  •  I know about the southern strategy. (5+ / 0-)

    And I've read The Merchants of Doubt.

    But what's the analogy?  That women (and men) decrying continued sexism -- sexist violence and belittlement -- is analogous to politicians manipulating white racist animosity?  So people arguing AGAINST sexism are akin to white politicians trying to STIR UP racism?  People arguing against sexism are akin to corporate execs trying to foment "skepticism" about established science?

    And with the southern strategy and tobacco industry, there are defined agents who propelled those things...Are you suggesting that political conservatives are now taking up the mantle of feminism so as secretly to "divide and conquer" the Left?

    See, the analogy to me is fuzzy -- or just mistaken.  I don't mean to be belligerent.  But I think the debate is well worth having.
