(Editor’s note: Opinion pieces are published for discussion purposes only.)

I rise in defense of men. They are taking an awful beating.

The Harvey Weinstein stuff. The social media “me too” campaigns by women who’ve been harassed.

Not to mention stories from supposedly somber institutions like the Arizona Legislature and the U.S. Congress about how badly some male elected officials behave toward female elected officials.

The yuck-factor makes you want to wash your hands.

Hold vile men accountable

And, of course, the Texas shooter. His unspeakable killing spree puts a badly needed focus on domestic violence – and the gateway drug of animal abuse.

Stories of men doing vile things fill the news these days.
