creepy douchebaggery evil women men who should not ever be with women ever misogyny

Twitter hashtag of the day: #MenCallMeThings, a catalogue of horrendous misogynist crap sent to women online

Twitter hashtag of the day: #mencallmethings, in which Women With Opinions on the Internet report some of the creepy, violent, threatening, misogynist things said to them in comments and emails by dudes on the Internet. GIANT TRIGGER WARNING for:  “whore,” “slut,” “cunt,” “fat cunt,” “ugly cunt,” “cunt bucket,” “cum dumpster,” “lesbian hambeast” (huh?), assorted threats of rape and murder —  the list goes on, and on, and on. I would post the, er, “highlights,” but, really, just go and look at it. This shit is relentless.

will handwave and say yeah yeah but you missed his larger point

Or ya ya.

Funny how he never explains what his larger point is, though. You’d think he’d be falling over himself to mansplain it to us, what with us being such fluffy-headed ignoramuses (and that’s merely the men).

His larger point is “Bitch, make me a sandwich”, but you can’t really come out and say that and keep playing Mr. Reasonable at the same time.

The trouble with avoiding “obvious jerks” is that only the subtle jerks have the opportunity to by truly awful in their jerkiness.

The larger point is secret… if we knew what he was REALLY doing it would blow our minds.

He’s doing it this way to protect us. It’s for our own good.

Well, I can understand why he wants to protect those of us with ladybrains, but even if you guys are manginas you don’t *have* ladybrains, so, like, what?

The only real point I’ve gotten out of anything Brandon has posted is there’s not a single problem anyone could have that can’t solved by being Brandon, or as much like Brandon as you can be.

We, obviously, aren’t as smart as Brandon, and so aren’t able to truly comprehend the wonder of The Intent.

@Ozy: I am going to assume you posted naked pictures of yourself based on the responses you provided (a commenter mentioning “shave that thatch”).

You are free to do whatever you like. However, I don’t think it is insane to say “if you post naked pictures of yourself on the internet…you are going to get some negative commentary about it”

If you don’t want to hear all the negative crap sent to you, then don’t put yourself in that position.

Also, I hardly see how people criticizing (although harshly) the pictures you post is inherently sexist. Sure, it’s a dick move and I certainly wouldn’t comment on it, but all you are getting is people stating their opinion about your photos (which you placed into the public sphere intentionally).

I’m going to assume she posted them for the reasons she mentioned in that post, because she felt like it.

Just as I assume you mean the things you say (much as that seems to pain you).
