There are a whole lot of prominent figures in history & politics whose obituaries would not withstand the scrutiny of a #MeToo investigation. The socialist movement has its own share of such unsavory types who if they didn’t assault women treated them as far lesser human beings. With resentment at the posthumous honors they received, I kept my distance from the eulogizing & memorials when they died & I’ll do the same for Kobe Bryant. To my mind, rape & diminishing women are mortal offenses, not minor peccadillos. Giving accomplished men impunity for crimes against women gives young men the wrong message. Call me a feminist hard-nose, even call me a feminazi, but if you don’t recognize women’s humanity, I won’t really miss you when you croak.
