A few things:

  1. Everything in this video? Not things that are even remotely seen as acceptable behavior by women. And no woman is going to argue that we are entitled to drive our families off cliffs. I don’t think women would argue that these behavior are okay because they aren’t. Period. End of story. Women don’t drown their children in bathtubs and then have a large populous of people say, “Girls will be girls, amiright?”
  2. Women don’t accept this behavior from each other. They don’t encourage it. Guys will egg each other on and accept “locker room talk” as a norm. “You get with Carrie last night? You hit that? Right on, man. Right on.” Addressing the content of that video, never once have I heard a woman talk about another woman’s child in terms of “You beat that kid last night? You get that? Right on.”
  3. Madison Avenue has been telling women how to act for fifty decades before the Gillette commercial hit the air. Don’t believe me? Read this:

4. Lastly, I see you write under an alias with an account that bears no profile picture, has no written profile, is not a paying member of Medium, has written nothing, follows no one and has no followers. Your only comments are sexist ones on two of my articles and one by Mark Greene. This makes you a troll. At the very least, it makes you a god damn coward. This will be the last time I respond to one of your comments. I don’t play with cowards.
