“Alt-right” women are upset that “alt-right” men are treating them terribly
Women in the "alt-right" "are constantly harassed by low level anonymous trolls trying to put us in our place," self-described "Ethno Nationalist" Tara McCarthy wrote on Twitter Sunday, in a moment of revelation that was well-known to basically anyone else. "The ultimate goal seems to be to bully us off the internet."
I don't usually use anime reaction gifs but this is extremely appropriate.
It's just so INCREDIBLE to think that the exact same people who have been trying to bully women off the internet for YEARS would bully you, Tara, a woman, who says things on the internet.
Don't lose your mind just yet, though. She's not saying that alt-right losers shouldn't bully women. They just shouldn't bully the women who are on their side.
The problem I'm stating here is not that 'there are trolls on the internet' but that people who proclaim to be on our side are trying to tear down women in our in-group. If you can't see why this is dysfunctional, I can't help you.
Whoa weird, it's almost like misogynistic men don't stop being misogynistic even if you agree with everything they say! It's almost like you won't be immune from their hatred of you no matter how much you lean into that white supremacy! Like your whiteness doesn't protect you from misogyny! Whoa!
Then there's Laura Southern.
Another self-described "conservative woman" also had a problem with her movement's underlying culture. In a video titled, "Why I'm Not Married," Lauren Southern responded to the backlash she received for pushing "traditional family values" and trying to tear down feminism — while not turning into a baby-making machine, herself.
"I am not trying to sell the idea that myself, as a 22-year-old, needs to be married right now for the sake of traditionalism and not being a degenerate," Southern said in a YouTube video. "What is also just completely shocking to me is the utter lack of understanding of nuance."
Holy. Shit. Are you telling me that white supremacists don't understand nuance??????????? YOU'RE FUCKING SHITTING ME AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
Honestly fuck both of you. You chose your bedmates, now deal.
