Since that moment, our relationship has progressed and I can now say I’m falling in love with this date.
And I attribute part of that to his patience and understanding and sadness around the situation.
Who knows if things will work out, but for what its worth, dating in the post-Weinstein era has shown me that vulnerability is key and if a guy condones or diminishes any of your prior sexual assaults or harassments, he’s not worth your time.""My reckoning began with the 'Shitty Media Men' list.
While I never saw the actual list myself, as a woman in the media, I knew of men at all levels who were harassers/assaulters/rapists.
I’m enraged when they slut shame other women as a means of complimenting me. I ask a lot of questions and try my best to carefully analyze the photos of anyone I meet.

They asked whether you can appreciate art created by someone who's harassed others.
They bonded and obsessed over a fictional story about bad sex (and the reactions to it), and they wrote countless think pieces about one woman’s questionably consensual but deeply upsetting experience going on a date with Aziz Ansari.
' A year ago, I might have let it slide or just made a small comment, especially since we haven't been seeing each other that long.
