Dear Ms. Toussaint,

Looking back at my comment, now I think that instead of writing what I believe is right I should think what would be politically correct to write. I should start with saying how sorry I feel learning about Ms. Harris experience. If I knew her personally, for sure I would do it, but in private. Intuitively I did not do it in my comment. For me it would be hollow, but you might see me more as a person not a monster worth your swearing and name calling. Unfortunately, mostly for me, I do not write to please my readers. I write to tell how it is.

In particular facts are not on your side when you write that the “essay by Ms. Harris is about a violent act performed on a five year old child.” First, this text was introduced to me by Medium editors as the leading article under the headline: “Surviving in a bad man’s world.” Second, the title is: “Brett Kavanaugh and the Power of Public Trauma.” Third, the subtitle is: “For the first time, a whole nation of women are being triggered at once, and they’re not afraid to speak.” Lastly, the author just mentioned her rape as a justification of her anger and validation of her point of view. She used her trauma to sound more persuasive in promoting her political agenda.

You are wrong as well when calling me stupid because I wrote that sex sells in media better then crime. Maybe I should be more precise; crime sells well in media, sex sells better, but the sex crime sells the best. Look at the success of the SVU serial.

Prompted by your comment I read the essay by Ms. Harris again, this time slowly, paying attention to every word she wrote. Even more than before, I see a meaningless ranting of an angry person. Of course it is just my opinion, and you have the right to disagree with me. Knowing that I have strong opinions, I always welcome critique. I learn a lot from it. Unfortunately, your facts did not check out; your arguments full of vulgarities and invectives, tell a lot of about your feelings, but very little where the flaws in my reasoning are.
