In young Bernie Sanders’ mind rape and misogyny are fine. A 1972 paper he wrote titled, “Man and Woman,” ran in the Vermont Freeman.
It details out a perverted view of a male/female, husband/wife relationship. Young Bernie’s views on the subject might show the reason he is divorced. His ideas of love are beyond cynical, they are dangerous and promote raping of women.

It was a long time ago, but how has Sander’s views changed since then? That would be the question no one is asking. Does he think women want to be gang raped?

Sanders bounced back and forth between Vermont and New York City, where he worked at a psychiatric hospital. After his marriage broke up in the late 1960s, he moved to an A-frame farmhouse outside the Vermont town of Stannard, a tiny hamlet with no paved roads in the buckle of the commune belt. He dabbled in carpentry and tried to get by as a freelance journalist for alternative newspapers and regional publications, contributing interviews, political screeds, and, one time, a stream-of-consciousness essay on the nature of male-female sexual dynamics:
