So I’ve been asked on a Facebook timeline if I’ve ever been in love by someone who clearly has no idea how insulting or impertinent the question is. Not because it was asked publicly but because it was asked, even thought, at all.
No political man would ever be asked that question but only political women because the misogynist assumption is a politically committed woman has no emotions or personal life but is some sort of androidal creature without capacity for human love.
Am I going to answer the question? Of course. As soon as I’ve finished slapping the crap out of him to smarten him up. It’s the surest form of pedagogy.
