Hey there! Want to hate on women, but don’t want to lose followers? Never worry about your public perception again with the help of this handy dandy guide to acceptable misogyny!
1. Choose your target. In order for your misogyny to be acceptable, this woman must be successful, in the public eye, and preferably a member of one or more privileged groups (straight, white, etc.)
2. Pick your method of attack. Remember, in order for your misogyny to be acceptable, it has to be disguised behind some sort of social justice excuse.
Undeserving of success
3. If possible, use more than one method of attack. It’s always best to have multiple excuses for why a bitch needs to get taken down a peg.
Anne Hathaway: Fake, white, undeserving of success
Jennifer Lawrence: Fake, white, undeserving of success
Lady Gaga: Fake, white, undeserving of success, straight, liar*
Taylor Swift: Fake, white, undeserving of success, straight, promiscuous, liar
*Remember, your point of attack does not have to be true to be effective. Lady Gaga isn’t straight, but who the hell cares?
4. Make accusations aimed at the woman’s integrity or likability. These can be derived from your main points of attack, or unrelated.
“Anne Hathaway should just shut her giant mouth instead of pretending to care about rape culture. She’s just acting like she gives a damn so she can win the Oscar.”
“Jennifer Lawrence fell on purpose when she went to accept the Oscar because she thought it would make her seem ‘just like us.’ She’s so fake.”
“Lady Gaga’s straight and just using the LGBT community to make money! When she asked everyone to contact their senators and urge them to repeal DADT, it was a publicity stunt.”
“If Taylor Swift lived in 1916 instead of 2016, she’d have Kanye West lynched.”
5. Cheerlead anything negative that happens to this woman, no matter how immoral or even illegal. If you are called on this behavior, fall back on your previous attack points and accusations.
“Anne Hathway was too stupid to wear panties and now she’s pissed that the paparazzi got a shot of her vag lol”
“Jennifer Lawrence nudes got leaked fucking awesome serves her right”
“Gaga’s pretending to have lupus when everyone knows she just got fat what a loser”
“Kanye and Kim are heroes for secretly recording a phone call with that snake, her career is over forever”
This has been the first edition of the Acceptable Tumblr Misogyny Guide! Tune in next time when we discuss using Jill Stein as a shield so that you can claim you’re not sexist, it’s just that Shillary Cuntlin is the literal devil.
“I’m not going to tell anybody, not even Lilly. Lilly would NOT understand. NOBODY would understand. Because nobody I know has ever been in this situation before. Nobody ever went to bed one night as one person and then woke up the next morning to find out that she was somebody completely different.”
