It’s All About Kyle Payne
The Henchwoman has a post up about Kyle Payne, the convicted sex offender who sexually assaulted a young woman under his care, is now out of prison, and continues to seek attention as a “feminist.”
I can’t add much to what others have said, except to say that Mr. Payne has nothing to offer to women or to the world until he accepts that he has nothing to offer. He needs to stop seeking attention, to realize that the only one who really benefits from him putting his voice out there is him, and that he owes is to his victim and to everyone to do whatever work he needs to do alone. Alone. Without communicating about it. Without seeking forgiveness, credit, or attention from anyone.
Until he can do that, he is making zero progress and remains a sexual assault waiting to happen. Because that’s how rape happens: privilege elevated to a level of solipsism by a man whose self-absorption is so great he can reduce a woman to a mere prop in his narrative. Since Payne is unable or unwilling to go quietly into exile, he clearly still thinks it’s all about him, and he has not and cannot make any progress.
