There’s been a great deal of media coverage of the huge number of threats of violence, and threats of rape, allegedly made (through Twitter) against Caroline Criado-Perez in the light of her ‘women on banknotes’ campaign. My strong hunch is that if she’s really received the number she’s claimed (up to 50 per hour…or was it 50 per minute… or was it 50 per second?… it’s so difficult to keep up…) then the overwhelming majority would have been sent by feminists using new accounts with men’s names, keen to pursue the feminist ‘all men are violent’ and ‘all men are rapists’ narratives. Of course the mass media – BBC at the head of the queue, as usual – report her claims as both factual and beyond challenging.
Ms CC-P has blocked me from sending her tweets, it must have taken her 0.1 seconds to do so.
For an intelligent critique of this matter we turn to someone who can usually be relied upon. Yes, it’s one of our favourite anti-feminist lady bloggers:
