David, It was time for you to shut up before you wrote those words. Really. There is no excuse for Senator Hirono’s sexist and demeaning statement. She crossed a line when she said men should just shut up. It’s bigoted and wrong to say “_____ just need to shut up" and fill the blank with any group based on gender, race, religion, or nationality. She should be censured by the Senate and roundly condemned by people on all sides. If the Democratic Party refuses to condemn her and does not ask her to apologize, then it’s time for men and women to walk away from it.
