The thing about Biden, which is the thing about a lot of men, is that he’s not a “predator” in the sense that he’s maliciously planning to hug women without their consent, or getting off on making people uncomfortable.
No, I genuinely think that Biden simply cannot see outside of himself — that he believes that if he views the world one way, that is how it is.
You see this in his video: he seems incapable of conceiving if the possibility that his hugs have always been unwanted by some people. Instead, hugs are a way of showing caring, and the only problem is we now show caring with selfies instead.
This is the kind of mindset that leads someone to speak for thirty minutes at a women’s event where they’ve only been allotted a mere five — hey, they wanted to go long, so everyone else wanted it too, right?

It is the kind of mindset that leads people to run for president.
And — and I cannot stress this enough — this is not just Biden. Many men are like this.

Most of my experiences of sexual assault came, not from predator types, but from men like this, men who assumed that if they wanted an experience with me it must necessarily be consensual.
Perhaps you think that hugs and hair sniffs are minor enough violations to give a pass too — I will say that I certainly don’t think they merit more than a request for an apology and a change in behavior.
But I will also say that *I do not want a president who is incapable of seeing outside himself*.
