I know some of the most wonderful men to ever exist. None of them are perfect, but then neither are any of the women that I know. They listen. They discuss. They can apologize. They can take no for an answer.
Lately, I feel like simmering cauldron of rage. My fiancé loves true crime. About 90 percent of the crimes they feature are murders of women and girls. From small children or elderly ladies, if they have a vagina and a male is involved in the killing, you can be assured that they have been sexually assaulted.
I thought #MeToo would help males to see where we’re coming from. No, they just find more ways to justify the shitty ways they treat females. I can’t tell you how many of them said, “she pushed my buttons,” or “I just snapped.”
But women are the emotional ones?
I’m loving the new She Hulk series on Disney+. There’s one scene in particular where Jennifer (She Hulk) explains to her cousin, Bruce (Hulk) how she doesn’t have an alter ego. She says, “I’m great at controlling my anger. I do it all the time: When I’m catcalled in the street; when incompetent men explain my own area of expertise to me.
“I do it pretty much every day because if I don’t, I will get called emotional, or difficult, or might just literally get murdered. So I’m an expert at controlling my anger because I do it infinitely more than you.”
Today, I am particularly venomous because one of these awful true crime shows featured a 20 year old, self-proclaimed Incel who video-taped himself murdering a 17 year old girl because she kissed another boy. Not that it matters, but they were not even in an exclusive relationship. It’s “friend zone” bullshit. He felt entitled to her. If he couldn’t have her, she couldn’t live.
Even more disgusting is that his fellow Incels were making the video and screen-captures go viral. They harassed her family by sending them pictures of their murdered daughter and sister, and told them that she deserved it! She deserved to be murdered for kissing a boy she liked?
I come here to blow off steam, and the first diary I click on is some wounded little boy crying about “fucked up ultra feminists.” You know why Ultra Feminists are fucked up? Because if we don’t defend ourselves, we’ll be abused, if not murdered, but when we do defend ourselves, we get abused and/or murdered.
Look around you, asshole. You created us.
Are there horrible females? Of course. But 99% of the atrocities committed on this planet are committed by men. If it makes you angry that we point this out, do something to change the behavior of your brethren and then we’ll have nothing to bitch about.
