Ironic misogyny is a lot less ironic than misogynistic

Bitches ain’t shit

I don’t understand why people are reacting so negatively to people disagreeing with these sorts of comments.

Empirically, women are five times as likely to be victims of intimate partner violence like simple assault, sexual assault, and aggravated assault than men are.

Murder, specifically, is nearly as stark:

In 2007 intimate partners committed 14% of all homicides in the U.S. The total estimated number of intimate partner homicide victims in 2007 was 2,340, including 1,640 females and 700 males.

I had trouble finding the detailed data for the FBI’s more recent Uniform Crime Report, but this is a pattern that holds true year after year.

‘Bitches ain’t shit’ ain’t just a meme, a joke, or commiseration: It’s a widespread idea that gets women abused and killed in the thousands each year.

I’m pretty sure the people who post this meme aren’t the ones beating women or sexually abusing women.

Like I joked about “bitches ain’t shit but hoes and tricks” when my friend got cheated on, but like.

Let’s calm down there mate. Nobody is denying how much women get sexually abused.

I certainly am not sure that ‘Ha ha, I’m only PRETENDING to be misogynistic’ is a reliable sign someone isn’t or that’s even important.

I’m more talking about this general community, and some people are definitely using the actions of one woman to rail against gold diggers or saying ‘Fry this cunt,’ and many more are agreeing with that sentiment.

When you generalize negative actions from one person to apply it in a homogenous way to all others whether you say you’re joking is irrelevant, especially if other people don’t take it that way. Clearly here, in this context, people aren’t.
