On Twitter, a guy calling himself Zach Goldberg does these amazing long tweet data dive explorations of hot topics. For example, he has a new one inquiring into why liberal women are more likely to report being sexually harassed than conservative women.

I don’t think he has yet ruled out all other reasonable explanations. For example:
- Liberal women turned liberal because they were sexually harassed.
- Liberal men in liberal industries (e.g., Harvey Weinstein) are worse sexual harassers.
- Women in conservative industries (e.g., oil, aerospace) are rarer and thus have more sexual market bargaining power to get a ring put on it than in many liberal industries, such as media, where women are a dime a dozen.
- More conservative industries were subjected to federal sexual harassment regulations back in the 1990s, but liberal industries such as Hollywood assumed they were immune due to their superior morality and Washington connections. But when Obama got done cashing their 2012 campaign contribution checks, he let his minions turn their wrath on fat and happy liberal industries like media, tech, and universities.
But Goldberg has come up with a barnburner of a correlation I’d never heard of before, which you can read here.
