The greatest harm the Castro brothers have done is to men, of course

I know we are a species of skewed perceptions.  Douglas Adams said it in a typically brilliant way:

“The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt: Hitchhiking the Galaxy One Last Time

But look at this.  Someone is saying that the greatest harm done by the Castro Brothers in Ohio – those men who imprisoned three women for a decade – is to men.

Ophelia writes about it here.

The truth is, this was the worst that could happen for anti feminist public relations at the moment. If this guy – Mr Castro – only knew how much damage he has done to men by doing this.

The case is such a gift basket for feminism, that I almost suspect it is fabricated.

A species of skewed perceptions and insane priorities indeed.
