Dilbert is Dead to Me

After what Scott Adams had to say about rape, Dilbert should be dead to you, too.
Powerful men have been behaving badly, e.g. tweeting, raping, cheating, and being offensive to just about everyone in the entire world. The current view of such things is that the men are to blame for their own bad behavior. That seems right. Obviously we shouldn't blame the victims. I think we all agree on that point. Blame and shame are society's tools for keeping things under control.

The part that interests me is that society is organized in such a way that the natural instincts of men are shameful and criminal while the natural instincts of women are mostly legal and acceptable. In other words, men are born as round pegs in a society full of square holes. Whose fault is that? Do you blame the baby who didn't ask to be born male? Or do you blame the society that brought him into the world, all round-pegged and turgid, and said, "Here's your square hole"?
Fuck you, Scott Adams, right in your square fucking hole.

  1. ...I can't believe he just said that men, if chemically castrated, wouldn't miss sex.

    I realize there's a whole bunch of other misogynistic crap in there that's maybe more offensive, but honestly... What a horrible place to live in his head must be.
