We’re told we are to respect women. Fine, but let’s be consistent.
People are to be treated with courtesy however respect is earned, at least that’s the way things used to be until that was redefined by those who demand they can get in our faces and stay there because it’s called “free speech”.
Such was on display during the Judge Brett Kavanaugh nomination hearings….
We’re constantly lectured as to appropriate “civil discourse” by the very people interrupting those dining out, bringing loudspeakers to homes, bum rushing them in offices and elevators, and rudely shouting out during government proceedings. They declare those with whom they disagree deserving of such disruption while also reminding us we must be respectful of them and their privacy.
Not only is the actual word “hysteria” gendered — it once referred to an exclusively female disease, a mental illness thought to be caused by a malfunctioning uterus — there is a very long history of critics using accusations or innuendo about women’s mental health or emotional stability in order to shut down their political voices.

If these so-called progressive wimmin wish to be treated with respect, it’s something that must be reciprocated. If not, their voices will invoke winces that will result in their messages not be heard and the logical response that the sooner they go away (or are removed), the better.
