‘Confidence’ is not a virtue all by itself. Whether Kim Kardashian is a mother, or poses for images with racist antecedents, or has a nice ass, doesn’t mean that there is any reason I should EVER have heard of her.
Women who write, and teach, and speak out against violence and misogyny. These women, I hope, have ‘confidence.’ Confidence about something that actually MATTERS.
Yes, it IS free speech, sort of. But that doesn’t make it ‘entitled’ speech, any more than crazy racists and homophobes have any ‘right’ to expect their driveling to be seen by anyone.
