Tonight I had an experience that perfectly exemplified the ‘Yes All Women’ discussion, so I tweeted about it. The response I received was, sadly, a great example of why the discussion started in the first place.
On the up side, sharing this on Facebook has led to some lovely supportive comments from the people I choose to surround myself with. It’s a good confirmation that there’s plenty of people who disagree – and actively fight against – the horrors that spoke up on the original tweet.
I’ve chosen the screenshot above because it shows some of the best comments, but my original (non-visible) post sums up my approach nicely:
Should have expected this on the #YesAllWomen Twitter tag.
Oh, no wait, I shouldn’t have, because these sorts of replies are *never* acceptable.
