I’ve spent many moons trying to think of a redeeming quality feminists possess. Sure, they’re usually hairy-pitted nasally-pierced hyenas whose BMIs are a direct threat to any nearby furniture. But, there has to be something positive about them.
I was nearly convinced there were no redeeming feminist qualities at all. Then, this New Year’s resolution from a feminist editor at HuffPo came along and cemented it. Her New Year’s goal? To kill all men.
She’s since deleted the tweet. Unfortunately for her, the interwebs are forever. Here’s a screenshot:
HuffPost editor Emily McCombs tweeted Friday about her desire to “kill all men” as part of her New Year’s Resolutions.
McCombs, who serves as the “Editorial Director of Parents” for HuffPo, previously wrote an article in November titled, “I Don’t Know If I Can Raise A Good Man.”
In the post, she talks about her own son, saying, “(o)f course, we all want to raise feminist sons. I wrote an article a few months ago detailing the ways I try to do just that. But my efforts are starting to seem like grains of sand against a steady wave-crash of misogyny and rape culture.”
At first glance, you’d probably think her tweet about offing every peen-having organism was just playful hijinks. After reading some of her work? Not so much. It would appear we’re dealing with a full-on feminist nutbar here.
Maybe it wasn’t her intention to come across as a homicidal leftist loony. But, that’s certainly the way things look. From the outside, it looks like a lifetime of manspreading and raised toilet seats have driven Emily over the edge.
This is where feminism and patriarchy paranoia leads. A bunch of crazed violent ladypeople starting fires and plotting to kill everything with a dangle in their path.
