Jerk on my Facebook, in response to someone expressing surprise over a link in my Facebook page to a video by The Amazing Atheist (context):
“I can, I just agree with everything in this video. I can say the same about you liking this cunts page as well”
I see. So in an effort to persuade people that The Amazing Atheist isn’t really so bad and we should give him a chance to explain himself, this person goes onto a woman’s Facebook page and calls her a cunt.
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.
