It can be exhausting and depressing navigating the maelstrom of disgusting behaviour by men that makes up a large part of the news cycle at the moment. Take last week. In the United States, Larry Nassar, team doctor for the US gymnastics national team, heard from 156 women delivering victim-impact statements during his hearing.
“I was a good doctor,” Nassar wrote in a letter read and tossed aside by Judge Rosemarie Aquilina, “because my treatments worked and those patients that are now speaking out were the same ones that praised and came back over and over. The media convinced them that it was wrong and bad . . . Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.”
