Today in Gaslighting

I know this guy means well, but sometimes I wonder how much gaslighting is due to the fact that many politically-engaged progressive women are thinking about politics, and specifically women's rights, three moves ahead, while so many men are putzing around on a checkerboard.

It can also be informational to visit a person's Twitter timeline and take note of whose voices they are amplifying, particularly if they are men with relatively large platforms. Is it mostly their own voices and those of other men, or a more equitable distribution?

Often, even among liberal/left/progressive men, it's the former.
