and sometimes people correct me (thank fuck) and when that happens, I’m glad, because it’s always nice to think that you can still learn things about the things you’re interested in. It’s a good thing to have someone monitoring you for accuracy. Even if it seems like nitpicking, you know, I’m fine with nitpicking as long as I’m actually wrong, which happens quite a bit.
I’ve been involved in all sorts of debates with all sorts of people, political, racial and so on, and when they get corrected, sometimes they actually acknowledge it. Sometimes they say “wow I got that wrong, thanks” or “wow I got that wrong, but fuck you anyway” which is also fair enough.
But you know what I’ve never seen? Despite literally pages and pages and pages of counterclaims, evidence against them, and plain old logic, making nonsense of their arguments, I have never seen any of these tumblr feminists admit when they’ve made a mistake. Which they do, all the fucking time, because we’re all human.
This ad floating around tumblr allegedly over-sexualising the ladies’ shirts over the men’s, which has been published over and over with a correction, I’ve never seen any feminist blog retract. Or retract ANYTHING where they’ve clearly been wrong.
What this means is that you’re not someone on the other side of a debate designed to improve the species. Not at all.
You’re a heretic. Or, if you were previously a tumblr feminist and managed to get out before it fried your brain completely, you’re an apostate. If you’re a woman, you’re a traitor.
That’s how it works.
Enjoy your religion.
