wow Jezebel is going HAM since there are no commenters today
It’s short enough that I can post it here. Written by Ms. EIC herself-Jessica Coen.
It’s surprisingly tough to keep track of all the stuff that can offend people. But we learn as we go — every day is a teachable moment. As such, we’ve been keeping a running list of all of the -snarking and -shaming we’ve been accused of over the past year; it is our hope that in sharing it, we can help make the world a more oversensitive place.
Ejaculating on your pregnant wife-shaming
Stay at home mom-shaming
Vegan-shaming (see: Omnivore Privilege)
So, I see that now that the commenting system is changing over and there will be far more trolls Coen is just basically saying FUCK YOU to the old ways of Jez completely. Her line about making the world a more “oversensitive place” is what leads me to this conclusion. She sounds like the people who come to the Jezebel comments to troll everyone by calling them the PC police/oversensitive/humorless-bitches-who-can’t-take-a-joke-and-take-everything-too-seriously. Soon enough she’ll probably be telling her critics that the reason they don’t like her is simply because they’re jealous crones!
Good job. I mean, I suppose if a potential shit storm is going to happen it’s best to ally yourself with the side you think will win before the war goes down (if you have no general integrity and conviction in the beliefs you once claimed were your own). Clearly, she believes Jezebel will be overtaken by burner accounts and assholes and so she is aligning herself (moreso than before) with them. We see right through you, Ms. Coen. You should probably be a little more subtle.
