Half of Twitter misogyny comes from women

Shocked enough yet? From psychologist Dr. Helen:

… if the government wants to educate people, it should start by telling the truth and that is that women are as likely as men, or maybe even more likely, to harass and abuse people on the internet. Women tend to be covert and to use their verbal skills to hurt others. The internet makes a good cover for their aggressive tendencies. Why does this surprise anyone? More.

Reality check: In the burgeoning low-employment, low-achievement society, social advancement will largely mean acquiring an accepted victim status. That means suitable theatrics, which in turn means that the abuse will be assumed to be coming from men, irrespective of evidence. In fact, it’s one of the few situations where sex will not be self-determined if one is an anatomically a male. (Whether or not the male tweeted anything abusive. He can be socially constructed to have done so because he is defined socially as male.)

    Sometimes I call my wife Martha……when she’s in one of her little “moods”…….it usually serves to return her to her duties and responsibilities……failing that I resort to the rough stuff.

    i tried chocolates and flowers. It don’t work……wimmins perceive it as capitulation…..as a victory and then before you know it you’re pushing a fucking vacuum cleaner around …..next week you’re wearing a fucking apron….and walking HER dog.

    No way Jose all you need is a basic knowledge of pressure points….a few simple jujitsu throws…..and you’d be surprised at the new found respect you get….

    Women don’t like women. Anyone who’s ever been in high school knows this. Anyone who’s ever worked in a corporate setting sees this. Men don’t like particular women but far more women detest other women generally and it’s because we deny this that it’s so prevalent.
