#mencallmethings: “worthless whiners”

Jerk on my blog, in response to my recent post on The Amazing Atheist:

GOD, feminists and liberals are so goddamn WORTHLESS.

I wish everyone could just ignore these worthless whiners.

#mencallmethings

I see. So in an effort to persuade people that The Amazing Atheist isn’t really sexist or misogynist and we should give him a chance to explain himself, this person goes onto a woman’s blog and tells her that feminists are worthless whiners.

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.

    Wow, the “But How Do You Know It’s Sexist” link to Sady Doyle’s work is amazing!

    @smhll #3: Oh, yeah, Tiger Beatdown is great (Was great? There’s nothing more recent than June 2013, but I could swear I read something there more recently. Did I just lose a year?), good contributors and lots of radical thought coming from people in multiply-marginalized positions.
