Joe Biden is.... much more arrogant than I expected.
I cannot imagine the hell of being Joe Biden's comms person.
I respect that Joe Biden is trying to listen and learn, but I think it's worth underscoring that power dynamics are not a matter of social norms. That it's less socially acceptable to violate the personal space of women doesn't mean it wasn't already exploitative in the past.
I can understand that some people, including some women, have found Joe Biden's affectionate physical behavior comforting. But as a young woman with social anxiety and a fierce attachment to her personal space, I'd be horrified in these situations. washingtonpost.com/politics/biden…
What Joe Biden does not seem to understand is that as one of the most powerful men in the world — especially when he was actively our Vice President — the people he interacts with cannot create boundaries with him. The power dynamic prevents them from saying no.
Joe Biden's unwillingness to interrogate his own power, especially when that power overlaps with his privilege as a white man, is to me a disqualifying factor in the Democratic primary race. He will not get my vote in the primary.
