“overwhelming evidence” lmao im just gonna saythis emphatically or with italics whenever i want ppl to believe me
i have some questions about this reply which are
- if you’re a radical feminist who doesn’t believe there’s strong evidence of patriarchal systems, why are you following me and also how does that work, and
- if you do believe there’s strong evidence of patriarchal systems, then why are you making fun of @bananapeppers for stating that in a post whose purpose is clearly not to prove the existence of patriarchal systems, but (in part) to make a point about the hypocrisy of male skeptics’ lack of skepticism about misogyny denial? do you imagine that she expected misogyny deniers to suddenly believe in the existence of patriarchal systems just because she put “overwhelming evidence” in italics? do you meticulously cite all the evidence for something you believe every single time you want to make reference to the fact that there’s a lot of evidence for it, including when speaking to people who already agree with you? if so, that sounds exhausting!
