American war on women

Equal justice? Not often. From Harper’s Weekly Review:

Tens of thousands of people signed a petition calling for the impeachment of a judge in Montana who sentenced a man to 60 days in jail for raping his 12-year-old daughter, and a man in California was sentenced to 1,503 years in prison for raping his teenage daughter. A couple at a Cracker Barrel restaurant in Greenville, South Carolina, left their waitress a note telling her “the woman’s place is in the home,” in lieu of a tip. Hundreds of women in yoga pants marched through Barrington, Rhode Island, to defend their right to wear the garment, and Trump vowed to sue every woman accusing him of sexual assault. “I look so forward to doing that,” he said.

But on the other hand:

A woman was found wandering around Sacramento carrying a human skull on a stick; in Amherst, Wisconsin, a woman was charged with disorderly conduct after smearing peanut butter on 30 vehicles parked outside a gathering she mistook for a Trump rally…

NOT REALLY AN UPDATE BUT A “WHAT’S THIS ALL ABOUT” COMMENT?

What’s that business about yoga pants? I must be out of some loop: I didn’t hear that Barrington, Rhode Island barred yoga pants. From where? Everywhere?

I don’t want to accuse myself of being a lazy researcher, do I? So here’s the yoga pants parade story, as told in the Boston Globe.
