I won’t go too much into detail about the Rebecca Watson thing as I am ignorant to most of it. But I do remember defending the predominately male side in Dickwolves case. I did this because I think the women who initially cased the incident were overreacting to an initial joke. What followed was people being wrong on all sides (like all arguments like this), but that a lot of the behavior was reactionary and defensive and no one should be running around labeling peope miso/misandrists. Well this time around it seems to have been my genre that flipped out for no reason. Apparently a girl giving advice about how not to creep a lady out is grounds to label her a crazy feminist. Like in the Dickwolves thing, I like to think most of the people saying harsh words are just doing it out of frustration and that only a small group of people initially acted foolishly, but the cause still rests with us guys.
Not a lot else to say. I just wanted to acknowledge that the situation really does work both ways and I want to be consistent considering the stuff I said during the dickwolves nonsense.
