A checklist of stupid things men will say when they find out I only retweet women

5 Comments and 10 Shares

I wrote a bit about why I only retweet women. As an exercise, let's guess what stupid things I'll hear in response! If we check off all these items, then we've won Internet Sexism Bingo. And by "won", I mean "lost".

  • "You should just retweet the best people!" I do.
  • "This is reverse sexism!" No, if I were calling for a few centuries of you being treated as property and said you shouldn't be able to vote, that would be reverse sexism.
  • "You're just doing this to get laid." Oh, son. You know what I do to get laid? I treat women as humans while being super smart and attractive. This is a trick that works really well, so I've kept doing it solely for my wife's benefit.
  • "This is political correctness gone amok!" I get it, you miss being able to use racial and gendered slurs, and feel censored. So be free: Please publish the denigrating slurs you love so much on your LinkedIn profile.
  • "You don't deserve all of those Twitter followers!" Yeah, I know. I wrote about that four years ago. Now you have some idea of what it might feel like to not have male privilege, except it applies in realms such as physical safety and equal pay, instead of just meaningless follower counts.
  • "Can you get me a verified checkmark?" No, man. No. I don't know how, and it doesn't mean anything anyway. But you can read a bit about what happens when you're chosen to be verified, if you want.
  • "Are you going to start retweeting men again?" Probably not? I don't feel like I've missed out on anything.
  • "This is censorship!" You are a dumb person who doesn't know what that word means.

Okay, let's see how we do!

Update: Oh good, Leah made an actual bingo card. I think we've gotten dudes who've checked off every space already.

He forgot "how noble of you to help these poor women out, how not self-serving whatsoever to call attention to yourself for doing it. It must have been terrible for you to do something nice and have nobody pay attention to you."

Anil writes some good stuff, and somehow I missed his retweet policy. This is really great.

These Solar-Powered Bike Lights Might Be The Only Ones You'll Ever Need

I'm still pretty smitten since trying out this pair of bike lights that mount permanently to the headset and seatpost—but I still gotta remember to charge them. So I'm dying to try out Pixio by Rydon; these little illuminators are solar-powered, meaning every time you go for a daytime ride you're powering up for after hours.
