“Here’s the thing:
Nothing about this is okay.
You are not okay.”
Here’s the thing you don’t seem to understand. You aren’t funny. Intolerance, bigotry, and misogyny is no laughing matter. It is not okay to turn someone’s fears into a joke. It is not okay to mock someone. It is not okay taunt a victim. To make excuses for what happened to them. To make light of what they needed to do to survive.
Have you not noticed the trail of burned bridges you’ve left behind you? Have you not noticed the people you have offended? How about the fact that they are women, or men that appreciate women for who they are? Their strength. Their resilience.
No. It is not okay. You are not okay. Get some fucking perspective and some humility while you’re at it.

Try to learn to be better.
For the sake of everyone.
While this is not directed at anyone in particular, I am making a strong statement with this. Society and humans in general lack basic empathy. It’s not difficult to try to understand someone for who they are and what they do if you take the time to learn.
