Yesterday, Amanda Marcotte said that Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., should not name the people in DC she’s been quoted as saying made inappropriate comments to her, because it would “ruin her and accomplish nothing.”

Marcotte received some support, including this:

If a Democrat harasses a woman it’s advised that the woman say nothing so Republicans won’t be able to score political points? And Democrats accuse Republicans of waging a “war on women”?
