Sexism isn’t sexy or satirical
I want to talk about when everyday sexism gets passed off as satire on the internet. But I don’t want to get chewed out about it because life’s too short.
The names have been changed to protect the innocent. The names have also been changed to protect the guilty — most likely from themselves.
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. About three months ago to be exact. Mr Butt Hurt wrote a nasty piece about women on an online publishing platform called Tedium.
The article’s title was: ‘How to make it on the female dominated Tedium.’ It was about as fun to read as it sounds.
Their basic argument was that Tedium had moved to a feminist slant and subjective essays.
This made Mr Butt Hurt’s butt hurt. He liked to write futurist articles and tech journalism; which no woman has ever done since the dawn of time.
He lamented losing publications that tackled subjects like programming, blockchain and technology.
He felt that women writing about feminine subjects dominated Tedium’s in-house publications.
You know what women are like — talking about their feelings and shit.
Tedium would be less, well, tedious if they didn’t allow ladies to write about their ladyparts. Or something like that anyway.
