Truest statement of the week

Al Franken was able to rise to the rank of U.S. senator without addressing the harm he had done women because we as a society and we as a political party did not think that it was that important. Because we have never held likable men who abuse women accountable for their actions unless forced to do so. Because we have always sold out the wellbeing of individual women for the benefit of the collective -- as if the collective isn’t also made up of individual women.

-- Ijeoma Oluo, "Al Franken harassed women and should resign. But it's OK to admit his loss hurts." (NBC NEWS).
