In Monday’s edition of man-hating feminism, UK-based journalist and frequent writer for The Guardian Julie Bindel told the “misogynist trolls” on Twitter that “[a]ll men are rapists and should be put in prison then shot.”
Aren’t feminists lovely?
Apparently, Bindel was being called “ugly” and a “manhating lesbian” by some “trolls,” whom she believes did not like her latest work concerning the “dismal conviction rates for rape in the UK.”
Journalists often receive a lot of “hate” from Twitter “trolls,” and expressing frustration in return or dishing out snide comments back is not entirely uncommon—but journalists rarely order an entire sex to be shot…
But Bindel is not your average journalist! Her reaction was to convict all men of being “rapists” and suggest they be thrown in prison and shot.
“Dear misogynist trolls I'm going to make things easier for you - save u some time. All men are rapists and should be put in prison then shot,” she wrote on Twitter, Monday afternoon.
I would suggest that such a violent and radical statement would, you know, hurt her credibility, especially concerning her work to increase the rape conviction rate, but it looks as though Bindel has already derailed any credibility (even by feminists' standards).
In 2015, during an interview with Radfem Collective, the man-hating feminist suggested that all men be placed in some type of concentration camp. No, really.
“I mean, I would actually put them all (men) in some kind of camp where they can all drive around in quad bikes, or bicycles, or white vans,” said Bindel. “I would give them a choice of vehicles to drive around with, give them no porn, they wouldn’t be able to fight – we would have wardens, of course! Women who want to see their sons or male loved ones would be able to go and visit, or take them out like a library book, and then bring them back.”
She also hopes that “heterosexuality doesn’t survive.”
What a peach, that Julie!
