I just honestly don’t care what his excuses for getting emotional are. He got emotional because he was ill prepared and everything he said came across like somebody responding to a mean internet comment before taking time to cool off. He wasn’t prepared and that to me says enough.
She on the other hand had to move because of threats, sat up their representing her entire gender and an entire movement to discuss something she likely never wanted to discuss outside of therapy. She didn’t get emotional because she knew there was no excuses for it, women are taught that. Emotional outbursts aren’t passion, it’s your period or your fragile feminine brain. I’ve invested far too much thought into how I will come across to others to have any sympathy for this guy. The hearing wasn’t a surprise ambush, he knew exactly what he was walking into that day, he knew the stakes, and he acted like a little bitch.
