Still, though, a question arises. To the one, we are Americans, and everyone knows just how undignified it would be if people actually acted like those depicted in the cartoon. To the other, we are Americans, and everyone knows just how undignified it is to behave that way unless one is a patriot using a gun to menace locals in the name of the Second Amendment, or shouting at, threatening, and assaulting women.
Meanwhile, the question arises, looms, persists: Then what does it take?
The explanation for this is simple enough under a general psychoanalysis of history: We judge women’s humanity as a reflection of manhood.
