i am goddamn sick and fucking TIRED of all these white women running around saying they were “duped” by hugo s. i’ve never SEEN so many precious snowflakes melting into puddles of duped tears. those same snowflakes that would chew the throat out of naomi wolff for defending julian assange. with their bare teeth.
I don’t GIVE a fuck if you were duped, that’s not the goddamn point. the point is WHY were you duped? and don’t give me some bullshit horse and pony show about “i want to believe a redemption narrative” cuz that is what is called LIES.
*F*eminism as an entity does NOT believe chris brown. *F*eminism as an entity does NOT believe eminem. *F*eminism as an entity has ripped other women who HAVE believed/chosen to support/be critically interested in Eminem or Chris Brown to *shreds*.
*F*eminism does NOT want to believe a “redemption narrative” unless it is coming from a VERY specific person.
if you’re not going to talk about THAT—you need to sit down and shut. up.
i can tell you right now what is going to happen. the tweets/posts noticing the silence of particular white feminists/institutions will eventually grow enough that those feminists/institutions will realize they can’t NOT say something.
so they will say something. who knows what. but probably something like “we’ll take down all his posts, we’re appalled, we’re sorry.” that sort of thing.
and then the narrative will shift from “i notice they’re not saying anything, why aren’t they saying anything?” to ‘but they SAID something—WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM?????” and again, it will be OUR fault/problem for not just letting it go.
this has happened before. and will happen again.
1. Yes I contributed to @BookOfJezebel. I wrote about the role of pants in women’s liberation, which as you may know, is a subject dear to my heart.
2. Anna Holmes is a good friend of mine, althoughwe didn’t become friends until after she resigned from Jezebel.
3. I donated what they paid me to NYAAF.
4. I want nothing to do with and will have nothing to do with the Schwyzer supporters in it or the one who now edits Jezebel.
