Online, some people want to play a victim constantly.
You know what I referring to don’t you? All men are sexists harassers, misogynists and just don’t understand what women have to deal with on a daily basis.
Those women that try to stand up and tell them their wrong? Those women are labeled the same. That’s strange to me. Women are also labeled chill girls meaning that they’re dismissing sexism. I don’t think they’re doing that at all.
No one can have a dialogue with the special ones because, especially as men, we’re told to Shut Up and Listen as if we have no right to an opinion. We do have opinions. They might even be sympathetic if someone were willing to talk.
There’s that word: dialogue. Whenever anyone man or woman suggests that, that person is met with derision. There’s nothing to “dialogue about”. It’s settled. Having any other point of view is misogyny.
Some of the worst of it that I see online is towards other women. I guess these special ones are not surprised men will object to their ideas of equality and sexism, but another woman? Sister Punisher.
So what’s the result of all of this? Lot’s of online derision back their way. Some of it is harsh. Is it deserved? Even though I participate in the mockery, it’s never meant to be cruel. It’s more of a tonic for me.
Should we stop mocking the special ones? I’m divided. Sometimes I believe we should just ignore these people and then one of them says something so stupid that I have to respond.
It doesn’t help the overall situation but I feel much better afterwards. I think that right now, that’s the tack I’m going to take
