    What the hell is your point here, dude? Do you have anything meaningful to say or do you just resent the idea that someone is reading an article correctly?
    Some guy rights a story about a rape fantasy in a sexual way and society judges rape as about power, not sex. You don't see any contrast in that? Some guy changing the general meaning of rape being about power and also running for the most powerful office in the US is thought provoking.

    You and I must be reading different articles, because the one in the OP written by Sanders in 1972 is not a fantasy, nor is it particularly sexual. It's a critical creative piece.

    So I can't evaluate your statement, given that you are talking about something that doesn't exist, and therefore something I cannot read.

    "A critical creative piece". Is that a fancy term for junk? That I can evaluate and choosing not to read what it says and totally discounting it seems counter intuitive. Now by all accounts, Bernie hasn't acted in any way like his writings, but I'm sure the Clintons are now researching all the unsolved rapes in Vermont.

    Whether it's any good or not has nothing to do with what it is. Most of it doesn't even have anything to do with sex. And I've certainly never seen a supposed erotica describe the act as "intercourse." It quite simply isn't a sexual piece. There is no "acting like his writings." He is commenting on social dynamics prevalent at the time, and to some extent still today.

    It seems to me you are blinded by a need to hate someone you think is "on the other team."

    Unless you would like to talk about the actual piece that Bernie Sanders actually wrote, rather than the imaginary one you've made up in your head, there's really nothing else to say.

    It seems you are quick to form opinions about others, but then I suppose you suffer from an active imagination that you accuse me of. I've made no comments about Bernie's policies, only about his character in running for the Democratic nomination with out any past, present or future desire to be a Democrat. Bernie doesn't have a team, so in that regard only, I guess I am on the other team.

    I'm not the one who apparently can't read a piece of only a couple hundred words.

    And I am aware Sanders isn't a Democrat, but as your own assumption displays, that's how people tend to think of him in their endless need to oversimplify the world.

    Well, when you are done reading the piece you can ponder the state of mind of someone who wrote this short piece. It appears he was married at the time although I can't even find her name or what has become of her. It says more about the relationship since it was written when he was 31, so not a college student.

    This one piece is nothing to indict him over, but it does add a piece of the puzzle of a complex person and his underlying character. If that is too much of an oversimplification of the world for you, I'll leave you to your reading.

    Seriously. It seems people only care about context when it is one of their own.

    You prefer thieving conservatives?
