Brad Wardell: Grown Man

So last night, still feeling angry and bummed and generally emotional about the whole Ian thing, I went on an unfocused rant about the nature of journalism and how journalists today are too easily frightened and apt to do a 180, and how presenting "both sides" of the story as though they're equal isn't fucking ethical or equal at all, and mentioning Brad Wardell in the process because I've been seeing journalists kiss his ass after he presented "his side."

And by "mentioning" I don't mean that I used @ so that my rant would pop up in his notifications. I didn't want his nasty attention, and I assumed that he would be too busy being a CEO of a company to search his name on Twitter and scroll through all the many, many mentions of his name to find my insignificant personal account.

But he did! And this is what he had to say.


Well, he did say he wasn't going to stop being sexist. And he never said he was going to be original about it, so, I guess I got what was coming to me.

But the best part about this is how this comes just after Ian gave the middle finger to women everywhere by chastising about "dogpiling." Then, this morning, because Brad constructed his tweet so that all his shitty followers would see it, I woke up to 46 notifications of sniggering dudebros going "huhuhuhuh sandwich lol/kek" or whatever. And every few minutes there's another notification from Mike or Joe liking either Brad's comment or some other asinine comment made at me by one of his followers.

Can Ian Miles Cheong please message every one of these dudes including Brad and tell them that dogpiling isn't a good look?

You seem to be obsessive and under duress. I suggest checking in to a psych ward and receiving treatment.

Is this why you cried into your big bowl of cookie dough ice cream all last night? Perhaps you should juse kill yourself and do everyone a favor. You're fat, have the face of someone with Downs, and I don't think you've ever said an original or coherent thing on twitter .

Oh, I'm super calm, I love your blog. Especially now that you're demanding money for it. Now not only is the majority of your readership made up of regular folks who get a kick out of seeing you have the same pathetic meltdown constantly (while accomplishing less than nothing) but now you actually think you could get paid by those same people. It's just breathtakingly pathetic and hilarious. NEVER STOP THIS BLOG.

Who else wants to start an over/under for how long it takes for Lindsey to sobbingly close the comments while simultaneously blubbering that she totally has "won" some kind of fight?

Now go ahead and delete this comment quickly, before people see how badly you've gotten your ass handed to you.

Wow, ableism. You're obviously the better person here. What a great point, too.

Nice trigger warning... So, you know why you're being an asshole. You take pride in being a shitty person?

Every day, there are more and more reasons for me not to talk to men I don't already know.
