Twittering the Tweets: In Which I Cave to Social Media

18 Dec

Due to the fabulously robust #MooreandMe Twitter campaign started Tiger Beatdown’s Sady Doyle to address Michael Moore’s misinformation about and denigration of rape victims, I joined Twitter. My screen name is radlishra, and it is an awesome screen name because it almost looks like ‘radish’, but it’s not.

The #MooreandMe campaign is not just about Moore, of course. It’s about combating rape culture. Rape culture doesn’t spare the “little things” and neither should we.

To follow the campaign’s saga from the beginning. . . [Trigger warning for sexual assault and rape apologism]. . .

#MooreandMe: On Progressives, Rape Apologism, and the Little Guy”

“Day One of #MooreandMe: Or, How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love Being Blocked by Keith Olbermann on Twitter”

“#MooreandMe, Day Two: Keith Olbermann, Internet Consciousness-Raising Tool”

“SEXIST BEATDOWN: Until This FRENZY of HOOEY and ANTI-RAPE ACTIVISM Is STOPPED Edition”

“#MooreandMe: What Matters”

[Updated tonight to add:] “#MooreandMe: Four Days Outside the Tower. I’m Scared. I’m Tired. I’m Crying. And I Won’t Stop.” Holy crap, read this one, and literally weep. It’s beautiful.

Finally, I wanted to share an absolutely hilarious reply to one of my tweets from a dude who’s been spamming the #MooreandMe tag with woman hatred like whoa (he also like’s to harass Sady too).

I said: @MMFlint You can address the entire country of Sweden, but you can’t talk to some pissed off feminists? We don’t bite – promise. #MooreandMe

He said: @radlishra You rape “angstivists” do bite. Your bites are deadly like a viper. @MMFlint #mooreandme

First, LOLOLOLOL! Second, DEADLY VIPER, everyone! WATCH OUT FOR FEMINIST VIPERS!

Wait… maybe he meant…?

Anyway, tweet to your heart’s content! Make humorous photos to deal with rampant internet misogyny!

    I wish I was a snake, they are so bad-arse. Like a Dugite or something really fucking deadly.
