Not content to ask a question based on a false premise* at the Fight the Trolls panel at CONvergence/SkepchickCon, talk through the entirety of the answer, and storm out afterward, our little friend from yesterday had a go at Amy and Rebecca in the dealers room today.
rebeccawatson: Guy just yelled at me and Amy, “WHY DON’T FEMINISTS CARE ABOUT SAUDIA ARABIA” He was wearing a Romney/Ryan tee. Can’t stop laughing
@rebeccawatson You mean this guy being oppressed by @SurlyAmy ‘s epic hand on hip of misandry? #cvg2013 pic.twitter.com/oJGGG3rUNW
Picture below the fold. You know you want to.
As he was the one guy out of 6,000 or so trying to make the SkepchickCon crew feel unwelcome, there was a certain amount of hilarity inspired by his…efforts.
rebeccawatson: You guys I can’t believe none of us remembered to care about Saudi Arabia. I guess that’s it for feminism. I’ll get my coat.
@rebeccawatson I wonder how feminists in Saudi Arabia would feel about that sentiment. Except he denied their existence.
@AmandaMarcotte they exist but they don’t care enough, I bet
@AmandaMarcotte @rebeccawatson as one of those Saudi feminists I couldn’t have said it better myself
@majda72 @AmandaMarcotte look at the pic I just RTed. You’re trying to tell me that guy is wrong??? That is the face of rightness
@rebeccawatson @majda72 That guy clearly knows everything. I humbly submit to his greater, manly wisdom.
@AmandaMarcotte @majda72 indeed. now that this whole feminism thing is busted, we’re gonna have so much free time. Guess I’ll get pregnant
SurlyAmy: Guy just yelled at me while saying feminists silence critics. Lol. How do these people not see how funny they are?
SurlyAmy: Same guy also asked a question at the troll panel that was answered. Guess we should work harder on our so called silencing techniques.
@SurlyAmy THE YELLING SHOWS HOW RIGHT AND SOCIALLY CAPABLE HE IS. WHY ARE YOU OPPRESSING HIM WITH YOUR SILENCING POWER VOICE WORDS.
SurlyAmy: Ha! RT
@jailawrites: @ImprobableJoe @AmandaMarcotte @rebeccawatson …are we sure he’s not cosplaying a terrible human being?
To top it all off, once the guy was done, he ran off further into the dealers room. That meant he had to come back past the SurlyRamics and Skepchick tables again before he could leave. Luckily for him, there were two aisles through that narrow area, so he didn’t have to listen to any of those silencing feminists as he trotted by.
Me? I was moving furniture, so I missed the whole thing. *sniff*
* Said premise? That feminists were hypocritical in not calling out Bill Maher’s sexism against Sarah Palin.
