Bari Weiss Speaks To the 'Me Too' Hard and Middle Left On Bill Maher

Perspectives from one recent TV discussion on balancing freedoms, ending patriarchy, gender issues, and what the sexual revolution can be.

When Maher keeps his mouth shut, he learns much from women.

8. I watched the interview with

My son and daughter who are in college... They're very politically aware and very liberal. They totally agreed with her. I thought this was pretty awesome when Bill said;" "Emotional Hemophiliacs". Kirsten Gillibrand is our Senator and I totally disagreed when she said it's all the same. I also disagreed when she said Clinton should have resigned. He had a consensual affair with an adult woman. Monica wasn't a victim. It's truly refreshing to read the comments on YouTube about this video. It's nice to see and know that some of the younger people get it.

11. And us older ones, too. I fought to get allies for women's rights too long to support Gillibrand.

I hope all this nonsense will be put to rest with the Millennials.

3. Boy, do I ever diagree.

"In her short tenure, Weiss has given the paper exactly what it apparently wanted when it hired her. She has churned out a series of trite, shallow, cheap attacks on already-marginalized left-wing targets that have made her a heroine in the insular neocon and right-wing intelligentsia precincts..."https://theintercept.com/2017/08/31/nyts-newest-op-ed-hire-bari-weiss-embodies-its-worst-failings-and-its-lack-of-viewpoint-diversity/ My take exactly.

5. Grain of salt.

That "publication" is Glenn Grenwald.

6. You know I was worried about that site but

was so off set by her silly shallow manner and her inability to have any empathy, that I found the first place that agreed with me to quote. She used someone apologizing for touching her elbow to show how the movement has gone too far. As an old feminist, I find her voice for her millennial generation to be apologetic and uninspired.

7. Personally, I thought she made some very good points.

AS with any movement, there are going to be problems, especially within group. My problem with the site you quotes, besides it being run by a Russophilic sycophant, is his "problems" with her is mainly about who on the right agrees with her (so the fuck what?!) and her being a "Zionist" (wink, wink).
