An Observation

screen cap of a Twitter exchange: A tweet authored by me reading: 'I am tired of 'Gone Girl can't be misogynist b/c the dude is terrible, too!' critiques. Um, no. That is not how it works.' and a reply authored by someone whose identity I've blurred out reading: 'so for the sake of argument.Because I respectfully do not understand. Would all portrayals of men in same light be misandry?'

I think it's adorable when grown-up people use words like "misandry" and "reverse racism" and "sasquatch" with me in allegedly serious sentences.

And by "adorable," I mean: "A convenient way of conveying to me that I should not waste my time engaging with them."
