The U.S. Must Approach China With Humility

China has been around for 5,000 years. The United States has been around for 250 years. And it's not surprising that a juvenile like the United States would have difficulty dealing with a wiser, older civilization.

Normative Gender Roles Can Be Freeing

#MeToo Overreach Is Demonizing Men

#MeToo in its latter incarnation has moved a little too far in another direction: Rather than talking about what women want, which would be a healthy place to go, it has begun to demonize male sexuality and desire as if it's inherently predatory.
