We Tried to Fucking Tell You and You Said We Were Shrill, Too Sensitive, Had Pneumonia

Decades and decades ago, women were complaining about domestic abuse and the police and society in general were like, “Well, quit making him mad and, besides, that’s a private issue, we can’t get involved.”

And then women said, “Gee, when I try to go in to see my doctor there are people standing there with obscene signs, screaming at me and blocking my entrance,” and the police, and society in general, and all the liberal bros were like, “Well, they have a right to scream at you, and abortion is icky, and we’d rather focus on free college.”

And then Robin Morgan wrote Goodbye to All That and said, “Even liberal men are acting like sexist pigs,” and the media and liberal bros were all like, “Shut up, you dumb bitch, and xerox these anti-war memos.”

And then women said, “Gamergate is getting us doxed, and threatened, and harassed,” and the media and the liberal bros were like, “Oh, they just want journalistic ethics in reports about gaming and, well, gee, stop being so sensitive. Maybe you chicks don’t belong in the gaming world.”

And then women said, “Being a woman on the internet is dangerous and painful. When we express opinions about anything men dox us, and threaten us, and harass us, and generally run us off the platform,” and the liberal bros were like, “Whatever.”

And then women said, “Supporting Hillary Clinton online is dangerous, and painful, and this shit is serious. We have to retreat into private chatrooms just to express our points of view,” and the liberal bros were like, “Good. See ya. Write in Bernie and if Trump wins, well, it’s that bitch’s fault for not going to Wisconsin.”

And last week the anti-abortion, male domination, pro-patriarchy, white supremacist crowd showed up armed and ready to hang people at the Capitol and all the liberal bros were like, “Whoah! Where’s that come from?Q?Q!Q?Q!”

Women are so goddamn sick and tired of trying to tell you stuff and being ignored.

  2. Mz Eve Ensler has an excellent statement / descriptor of such ” good ” men: ” And really deeply, truly, I am over the passivity of good men. Where the hell are you? You live with us, work with us, make love with us, father us, befriend us, brother us, get nurtured and mothered and eternally supported by us, so why aren’t you standing with us ? ”
