Yet again, Twitter has managed to conjure a hashtag filled with sexism and fuckwittery on a Tuesday evening.
Quite aside from the concept of ownership of another human being, the heteronormative bullshit and the idea that a woman is only a success with a boyfriend, it’s so full of the tired old sandwich jokes that it’s almost boring. Almost.
Whilst I am loathe to click on such things knowing the rage they will induce, I just can’t help myself. Even at a glance, it’s completely transparent how these trends happen. It’s not just men, rolling out these old sexist tropes. It’s women so drowned by the patriarchy that when they come up for air they use it for nothing better than to oppress us all.
I wish they had saved their breath.
