Insert Misogyny Here

I'm not sure what Slashfilm expected to happen when they posted a screen cap from Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull of Shia LaBeouf's character about to punch Cate Blanchett's character and solicited suggestions about what "Shia's character says right before he socks her," but if they didn't expect a comments thread filled with "bitch," then they're fucking idiots and need an Internetz 101 refresher course.

Then again, posts deliberately provoking a deluge of misogynist spewage are all the rage these days—so I guess they're just being "edgy."

Because, ya know, it's totally hip and fresh to demean women.
