I’ll be honest – the only research that has gone into this piece is anecdotal: namely, my Facebook newsfeed.
For the past two days, I have seen post after post of whining progressive students complaining about how ‘sexist’ an apparent “Yeah The Boys Meet Up” event is (even creating a counter “Dog the Boys: Counter-Action Against Yeah the Boys“) OR of dumbcunt dude-bros complaining about how said whiners are feminazis that need to take a joke, meanwhile being as offensive and obscene as possible. It’s like fucking Trump/Clinton for school kids – so much so that I’m starting to feel the post-writers are also trolls (except I know a few, and they’re not).
But the big question is why the fuck is this all over my newsfeed. To which this writer has no real answer. The Facebook algorithm is either trolling me hard, or the crappy memes and clickbait content that I ashamedly click on in my private time has led Facebook to believe I am also an idiot.
While I cannot be arsed to trawl through the comments to pick out the super sexist ones or the super
stupid sensitive ones (you can look for yourself) – this truly is strangely reminiscent of Trump v Clinton… or half the other dumb shit for that matter.
Stupid actual deluded right wing people do or say stuff. Pisstaking trolls egg them on and take it to the extreme. Stupid left wing people think they’re clever for calling out said trolls with a moral highground. Pisstaking trolls egg them on and take it to the extreme. News media gets onto it and sensationalises the fuck outta it.
No one has ever changed their mind after reading someone having a sanctimonious rant in the Facebook comments.
The internet is just words people – if something you see online upsets you, commenting on it will only make it worse. Then go smoke some cones and stop your bitching.
