I was catching up on pieces in the Intercept, a highly respectable lefty site run by Glen Greenwald. Unreasonable lefties and righties are a dime a dozen, so easily ignored, but you wouldn’t expect anything insane to appear (on the right) in the National Review, so I was very surprised at this in the Intercept, on movies and toxic masculinity.
