I am a man who admittedly does not know much about sexism and male privilege (being a beneficiary of the latter). But I do know that if any woman acted like Rahm Emmanuel, she would not have had all the opportunities he has had. Like most recently, the ambassadorship to Japan. A country well known for its politeness. A post he is wholly unqualified for.
So, with Japan as an important strategic ally needed to counter China’s economic and military strength in the region, that ambassador post should not be trusted to someone who abuses power, does not respect others, and exemplifies how easy it is to not get fired because you are a man.
