I dislike talking to guys about topics like violence against women. In a way, I hate talking to clever, academic types of guys about it even more than I do with your run of the mill ignorant prick. I don’t know what I hate the most - the devil’s advocates, the ones who treat it all like a fascinating philosophical quandary, the tone police, the “I’m with you right up until you reach something that challenges me specifically” dudes, the “superior because I’m neutral” dudes… It’s very tiring. Usually when I’m talking to a guy about politics for the first time, I am just waiting, I have my mental bingo card out and my dobber poised, ready. It rarely goes undobbed.
