Me on Twitter, discussing the Richard Dawkins tweets about rape: Our culture has TERRIBLE ideas about rape. So we should speak about it carefully, clearly, and w/ awareness.
Jerk on Twitter: oh shut up. You completely missed the point with his argument. Jumping the gun feminazi.
Really. In answer to the idea that our culture has terrible ideas about rape, so we should speak about it carefully, clearly, and w/ awareness, your response is “shut up, feminazi.”
I’m reminded once again of Lewis’s Law: “Comments on any article about feminism justify feminism.”
Note: The #mencallmethings hashtag does not say #allmencallmethings, or #mostmencallmethings. If you want to learn more about the history of this hashtag and why people started using it, please read But How Do You Know It’s Sexist? The #MenCallMeThings Round-Up and Why Are You In Such A Bad Mood? #MenCallMeThings Responds! on Tiger Beatdown, where the hashtag originated. And please do not start a “but not all men are like that, so the #mencallmethings hashtag is reverse sexism!” argument. That has been addressed, at length, in the comments in the #mencallmethings: “FUCKIN HOE,” “FUCKIN FEMINAZI SLUT” post, as well as elsewhere. Please read Why “Yes, But” Is the Wrong Response to Misogyny if you’re wondering why I will not take kindly that that particular line of conversation.
