It was on the fuel tank of a Mayhem V8 sprint car that I saw this priceless quote: “If you want to run with the big dogs, don’t piss like a puppy!” But you, Laura, you squat down like a typical Chihuahua 'you know what'…
WARNING: This article represents an opinion regarding another opinion that may not be compatible with the reader’s opinion. Reader discretion is advised.
On the rarest and briefest of occasions I can be found reading an article in the Women24 section of this site. Whenever I do so, I am reminded why I don’t revere any female writer, or why I don’t generally debate with women, or why I don’t care about how the world looks from the feminist’s perspective.
Women’s writing always seems to center around fashion guidance, dietary advice, but more often is just one outburst after another targeted at another woman and/or those humans stricken with the penis condition. Your article ‘Angry feminists grr grr stomp stomp” looked like the typical red-dot from a feminist sniper.
As I actively oppose any movement that demands more than equal rights, I just had to respond, but not in the usual ‘offended penis dangler’ way that you may expect:
You see, it is not so much your predictable, hairy-chested feminist rebelliousness that bothered me, it was the numerous comments that vanished from below your article that irritated me. You seem to enjoy some nepotistic administrator rights that permit you delete (or have deleted) comments that you deem ‘unworthy’ of addressing either you or the predictable points you made.
Who are you, Women24’s Gestapo, feminist division?
Having people comment on your opinionated writing is a privilege, you amateur; it also is the embodiment of freedom of speech—a right every one of your readers enjoys under the South African constitution!
As much as I’ll argue and disagree with someone (even a troll) when they comment on one of my—usually controversial—articles, I would NEVER delete anyone’s comment(s) or harangue an admin to do so on my behalf.
If you indeed are guilty of such conduct (for I doubt all those people just deleted their own comments), then I think you might want to act less proud of the fact and avoid discharging this sort of bragging retort from your Twitter account:
“Oh yes, let me take advice from someone whose platform is the comments section.”
Well then, since you are such a platform elitist, why don’t you step into my platform (a PalTalk debate room called The Unofficial Debate) this coming or next weekend and debate me? Let’s see if you have any balls—figuratively speaking, of course.
I am willing to give you a sporting chance to defend your views and perhaps convince people that there is more to you than your rabid feminism that causes you to froth at the mouth.
I suggest the debate topic focus on ‘the relevance of feminism in South Africa.’ The debate will follow the Oxford style, and will last for one hour, and, yes, it will require you to think on your feet (can any feminist still do that?). A neutral party will moderate the debate and the audience will comprise of anyone who wishes to listen in on the debate.
Don’t worry, the room will be set to ‘R’ so that you may fully express your feminism with the requisite outbursts and swearing as prescribed in the fem-nazi manifesto, because unlike you (it would seem), I don’t support censorship of my opponents, nor do I commission the silencing of members of my audience to curtail the opprobrium I’ve earned.
