Today was depressing with one of the dominant stories today was 'all men are rapists' men-bashing narrative because some stupid dangerous male lunatics think it is OK to go onto Twitter and say they want to 'rape' feminists and female MP's.
It hands the ammunition to those modern-day men-hating feminists who want to paint all men as potential rapists and Neanderthals as part of the patriachal conspiracy. It just adds momentum after the banknote 'success', the golf club conspiracy and today's news on employment tribunals (more tomorrow on this).
We are back to the "when did you last beat your wife' territory - now it's "when did your last tweet you wanted to rape an MP"
Of course, it is painted as a women against the patriarchy when it comes to trolling, but we know from this site that men can be victims of trolls and also, that women will troll other women on Facebook etc. And just remember that the Luluvise site is one big troll fest against men.
So it meant a great story such as the clear up rate for testicular cancer or the lack of men taking paternity leave - thereby showing paradoxically how committed men are to the family unit as they will sacrifice paternity leave to protect their family's income (you won't hear the anti-male feminists talking about how men support their wives/partners/daughters).
So a few lunatics men mean pro-male stories are relegated and men again are lumped together by those who want to paint us all as bastards. Those trolls have damaged the women they trolled but also men campaigning for equality.
