Why Bernie Sanders' Decades-Old Rape Fantasies Matter to 2016 - Bloomberg Politics

His essay, in the Vermont Freeman, begins this way:

A man goes home and masturbates his typical fantasy. A woman on her knees. A woman tied up. A woman abused.

A woman enjoys intercourse with her man—as she fantasizes about being raped by 3 men simultaneously.

Later in the piece, he seems to be saying that traditional gender roles are hurting both men and women, and need to be discarded ASAP. But that changes nothing about his starting point, which is that men typically fantasize about hurting and humiliating women, and women typically fantasize about gang rape.


These aren't my fantasies but maybe I'm just weird.
