A new new sensitivity

At Althouse,
"And times have changed. We have 'a new sensitivity toward victims of unwanted sexual contact.' Interesting. I remember when we had 'a new sensitivity' in the early 1990s, when male Senators, chided with 'You just don't get it,' stepped up and took it very seriously. That new sensitivity got lost to a politically opportune insensitivity when Democrats decided it was more important to protect their President. They subordinated feminism to Democratic Party power, and it required a long struggle to get back to a second new sensitivity. And so, once again, the question is whether sensitivity or insensitivity better serves the interests of the Democratic Party."
