Last night after speaking re feminists in Arab Gulf states use online spaces, why I started #MosqueMeToo, and beginning as always with “fuck the patriarchy,” a man who claimed he stumbled into my talk by chance was 1st at mic to ask “Don’t you think your language is assault?”
I told him that was one of the most ridiculous questions I’d been asked and that I wouldn’t dignify his “When you say ‘fuck’ you assault us” nonsense. And I moved onto the next question. Zero fucking patience with fools and misogynists.
I had a white woman urge me as I signed her book in NYC not to “otherize” white women-told her to go talk with other white women. A white woman in Manchester who asked @helloiammariam at our event about “unity.” Mariam shut her down and I told her to leave.
Otherwise, Feminist Giant Tour has been relatively free of fools
Oh yes I forgot this but: after I refused to answer his nonsense question, I told the man (from first tweet) this which serves as a warning to all who “I just stumbled into your event” fools
