THEY’RE BAAAACK: The ongoing expressions of shock on the part of the cultural establishment reflects its fear that Trump’s victory means the unapologetic white male has returned.

IF ALL HIS other cultural blasphemies did not finish off Donald Trump, his grab-them-by-thepussy line, in the overwhelming opinion of the liberal media, would. That it did not might suggest that many cultural certainties are a lot less firm than most of the media and culture industry thought. Twenty years (or so) of rule-tightening about how we talk about sex, gender, race and our multicultural society was put up for review by Trump’s election.

You could hardly find a more threatening and throwback version of that than Trump—a rich, voluble, egomaniacal pussy hound.
