“attention whoring,” “a feminist is”


Some more joy from Twitter, in response to my #YesAllWomen tear.

Me: #YesAllWomen The fact that I get 10x more threats from men who hate me b/c I’m a feminist than believers who hate me b/c I’m an atheist.

Asshole on Twitter: @GretaChristina No body cares about either, you’re just attention whoring because you look like Dexter from Cartoon Network. 10+ cats, min.

Different asshole on Twitter: @GretaChristina More like, a feminist is a … cunt.

Interesting, isn’t it, how the tweet that so far is getting the most number of hostile responses is the one about feminism and atheism. Hmmmm.

Oh, and for the record: Nope, just the three cats. Although sometimes with Comet in the house, it feels like ten.

    It never ceases to amaze me how common it is for men to attempt to prove feminists wrong by exemplifying the problem. SMH

    Dunning-Kruger’s a prick that way.

    Yeah, you say quite a bit about yourself when you use one of the Bible-humping goons from “Duck Dynasty”as your avatar… none of it complementary.

    “Whoring” implies monetary compensation; are you getting paid to tweet these days? Congrats! :-)

    Y’know what I think is the most astonishing thing about feminists?

    By and large, they don’t hate, distrust, or fear all men. Despite being given ample cause.

    Have some ‘men’ been warned of you and haphazardly hurling out insults as a knee-jerk reaction of you writing anything!?

    No offense(Seriously!), you don’t seem that popular to garner that opinion.

    Hortan @ #8: I do have a fair number of twitter followers (a little over 10,000). But in this case, for some reason this particular Tweet got re-tweeted a whole bunch of times. It seems to have struck a nerve. Not sure why, or whether it’s getting re-tweeted by feminists, anti-feminists, or both.

    The manosphere (is there is such a thing) seems feeble and reactionary,

    Hortan @ #9: Yes, alas, the manosphere is a thing. Check out We Hunted the Mammoth, an excellent blog which tracks it. Yes, it’s reactionary. I wish i were a lot more feeble than it is.

    I find the continual misguidedness of these guys breathtaking. Are you only highlighting the ones that use their full, very distinctive name in their Twitter profile, or are they all like that?

    I bet the reason @ranier_bawayan is so angry at feminists is that he was arrested for sneaking repeatedly into a women’s restroom at his university.

    a feminist is a … cunt.

    Guy doesn’t seem able to speak proper -or in this case improper english too well.

    “”A cunt” is a slang term for a vagina which is among things the birth canal from which most humans are born and (one) object of bodily desire in most straight porn I think right?

    A feminist is simply someone who accepts that women are human beings and thus deserve equal human rights.

    I know what a feminist is and being a feminist a good thing that everyone ethically should be. (At least some variety of feminist – there are like planets many types of feminist but with that basic commonality just as all planets are gravitationally rounded and not shining by nuclear fusion.)

    I am a feminist and I have no cunt – metaphorical or literal.
