To Those Defending Misogyny
January 4, 2012 1 Comment
One of the most frustrating things for me, as a feminist, isn’t that there are sexist douchebags out there. There are, in abundance. They’re assholes.
What’s frustrating for me is, that there are plenty of people out there who spend copious amounts of time defending said assholes.
“Yes, but!” “Yes, but!” “Yes, but!”
You’re a decent person. You know this is fucked up. Just say so. Why side with assholes? Why defend them?
You make sure we all know just how awesome and respectful and progressive you are.
But guess what?
If you’re defending the misogynistic assholes, you’re not awesome. You’re not respectful.
You’re an asshole.
You’re not on my side.
You’re not on this fifteen year old girl’s side.
You’re siding with the assholes.
What? You don’t like that? Then stop defending them.
See how easy that is?
