On Participation in Bar Fights as Necessary and Essential Proof of Masculinity

Jonathan Chait, Kavanaugh Supporters Have #MeToo Moment, But for Bar-Fighting:

The New York Times reports that Brett Kavanaugh was questioned by police in 1985 for his involvement in a New Haven bar fight. …

The conservative community has leapt to Kavanaugh’s defense. Their defense does not focus on the truthfulness issue, but instead on the legitimacy of bar-fighting, which they apparently see as a cherished way of life now under threat by the liberal elite.

Drat! Never been in a bar fight. I fail the test, once again.
