I can add very little to Michelle’s commentary although I might try to come at it from a male perspective in a future wordsfromwarren.com blog.
I read an account in which a woman with the pseudonym “Grace” details a night of intimacy with actor Aziz Ansari on the website Babe. The account is one in which the woman agrees to go to his home after a short date. As the night progresses she indicates her discomfort with his actions, feeling pressured to engage in acts.
Granted, it’s not rape. It’s not exactly sexual assault. But there’s something not exactly healthy about the experience anyway. (Part of the account notes that he “wouldn’t let her move away from him.”)
Reading the article has the potential to give woman that disgusting feeling in their guts – a familiar feeling because of the common experience of many women.
And then The Atlantic releases an article to challenge the integrity of the women coming forward to hold him accountable by a woman-from-another-generation who essentially victim-blames Grace.
