I'm impressed with Alyssa Milano. This is the kind of convoluted series of rationalizations you would expect from a career Washington Post columnist, not a former sitcom actress who became famous for tweeting a hashtag.
The fallacies are obvious.
In defending her support for Biden, she keeps using women as a collective group. As if she and her decisions represent all women. There are the strawmen and the false choices, accompanied by a distortion of history.
As an activist, it can be very easy to develop a black and white view of the world: things are clearly wrong or clearly right. Harvey Weinstein’s decades of rape were clearly wrong. Donald Trump’s alleged sexual assaults were clearly wrong. Brett Kavanaugh’s actions... were clearly wrong... Except it’s not always so easy, and living in the gray areas is something we’re trying to figure out in the world of social media. But here’s something social media doesn’t afford us–nuance... The world is gray. And as uncomfortable as that makes people, gray is where the real change happens.
Grown ups, you see, understand that you have to have gray areas because you're trying to make change happen and elect Democrats.
Now we pivot to "I'm a victim because I'm not allowed to live in the gray and shrug at sexual assaults to elect Democrats".
