I find it interesting that a woman intelligently and competently responding to a man asking her a question – related to her decades long, earned expertise is described as “beating up” “putting down” “slamming” “embarrassing” “humiliating” the man who asked.
Are we are buying into the idea that competent, incisive, and knowledgeable responses are acts of aggression when uttered by woman? He asked. She answered. Completely and thoroughly. Accurately.
I’m not talking about him. I’m talking about her. Sally Yates is very very good at her job. A standout expert. There’s was no aggression here. No attempt to humiliate. She ANSWERED THE QUESTION.
