“Plenty of men know what it’s like to cross a line and discover that nothing—not flowers, not tears, not emotional blog posts—can eradicate the skunk-like scent of jerkiness once it’s sprayed. Kanye West can’t seem to apologize enough for bursting in on Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech for Best Female Video at last night’s MTV Video Music Awards, even though a replay of the moment reveals that West’s imposition started with the words, “I’m sorry, Taylor.” Whatever motivated West’s words, his aggressiveness read as impossibly rude, not in small part because he is a 32-year-old man and the target of his scorn was a young woman of 19.” (suggested by Jer Fairall)
