1. It isn’t Ansari’s “feelings” that I’m defending, but his right to be inappropriate without an article being written about him that paints him as a sexual offender.

But fortunately for us, most of us aren’t famous and don’t have online magazines clamoring to publish attacks on our “I was kind of an asshole” moments for clicks.
