Justin Trudeau has "Reflected" on #MeToo Groping Allegations [VIDEO]
Justin "I Feel Pretty" Trudeau is a walking pile of vegan poutine and hair goop. He's also a self-professed feminist (see Proud Feminist Justin Trudeau Shames His Own Sons for Toxic ‘Masculine’ Nature and IRONY: Canada’s Feminist, Justin Trudeau Visits Mosque. Turns Out It’s a Sexist One…). Which made accusations of him groping someone from eighteen years ago very interesting. Surprising? No. But interesting.
He responded as you'd expect a male feminist to respond.
“I do not feel that I acted inappropriately in any way, but I respect the fact that someone else might have experienced that differently,” Trudeau said, describing how he has been “reflecting very carefully” on the interaction over the past few weeks.
He said that if he apologized about the interaction — as the Creston editorial says he did — then “it would have been because I sensed that she was not entirely comfortable with the interaction that we had.”
Yes, Justin just "mansplained" hooking up.
To be clear, I can believe Trudeau's account of things. Like most pretty boys with rich daddies, he assumed the girl was as enamored with him as he was with himself. Ignoring if the girl was having as good a time as he was. I'm not saying it's appropriate. It's definitely not. But what Trudeau allegedly did or did not do is not akin to Harvey Weinstein.
Here's the problem: if this woman made the accusation against anyone else, Trudeau would be the first person to throw the entire male gender under the bus. But since he's the one being targeted, suddenly it's "She didn't understand my intentions." Suddenly it's "Well, we had different experiences from the same experience." Suddenly it's "I didn't do anything wrong, she just misunderstood how it all went down."
Beware male feminists. Even the pretty ones.
