    There's nothing I hate more than a mansplaining liberal.

    In general, the Bernie Sanders campaign has been overwhelmingly positive for American politics. It has, however, unleashed a minor plague of progressive white men confidently explaining feminism to the rest of us. Some of them rail against identity politics, while others use the language of intersectionality, a great boon to white men who want to inveigh against “white feminism” without losing their left-wing street cred. Some just sound like surly conservatives complaining that affirmative action is racist. All are united in outrage that anyone could ever see a hint of sexism at work in the intense hatred that Hillary inspires among their ilk.
    The problem with the progressive men who’ve lately become experts on feminism isn’t that they won’t vote for Clinton. It’s their defensive petulance at any mention of anti-Clinton sexism. “Are you planning to vote for Bernie Sanders when primary time rolls around? If so, I am discouraged to report that you are a sexist, and also tremendously uncool,” the MattBruenig.com post says with peevish sarcasm. The writer sounds like a conservative grumbling that you can’t criticize Obama without being called a racist.
    I guess this shouldn’t come as a surprise; as long as feminism has existed, left-wing men have dismissed it as a bourgeois triviality. Now we know how little things have changed. For that, at least, we can thank these men for educating us.

    Is it not possible that rural use and possession of firearms has a different societal pact than urban use and possession?

    Why isn't urban gun violence, on a per capita basis, have similar effects in every city? Shouldn't Denver and Baltimore have the rate of violent crime, especially firearm related?
