[Ads-l] Predatory sexual behavior is out; patriarchalism remains

Yes, I finally heard this full sentence.  It's first "our women".

I believe I now know why so many male Republican politicians, candidates, and office-holders are deserting the ship.  They see finally that Trump feels entitled to sexually assault married women -- potentially _their_ women, women _they're_ married to.  (And _their_ daughters and granddaughters.)  They themselves might be (indirectly) targets.
