For all those going on about how awesome Cailtin Moran is—she may be awesome for youbut she’s not awesome for a lot of other people: queers, trans* people, women of colour, muslimas, etc. The tweets in question are summed up here (and quoted at the article(:
Moran: *tweet about interviewing Lena Dunham*
Random Person: Did you address the complete and utter lack of people of colour in girls in your interview? i sure hope so!
Moran: Nope. I literally couldn’t give a shit about it.
Random Person: What a surprise. Caitlin Moran loves Lena Dunham. White feminists who ignore the experiences of WOCs have got to stick together guys!!!
Moran: THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT. So, let’s be clear about this. Caitlin Moran is a privileged white girl who doesn’t learn, she just blows genuine problems off and moves on. If this is the thing that makes her step back and tarnishes her social currency, even a little, about damn time. But people at large should have been done with her a long time ago, for a lot of other reasons. The only way she still has a platform to pull this shit from is because she hasn’t shit on anyone important enough to really matter—yet.
Not to mention all the WORSHIP FEMINIST MEN bullshit in her book. And her shaming pole dancers. And her complete disregard for the amazing achievements by women throughout history by saying things like “yes we’ve done nothing but it was because of childbirth!” - no it only looks like that because we’ve LITERALLY been written out of history, cant you do the MINIMUM level of research jesus christ. i have Zero time for ANY of that. All that and a scoop of racism and harming queers. #nope
i can’t believe moffat said john and sherlock wouldn’t work romantically because “they’re not wired that way” and then wrote an episode where a lesbian falls in love with a man
your irene wasn’t wired in that way but you still made her fall in love with a man didn’t you you vile sexist homophobic piece of absolute shit
I identify with this post on a spiritual level.
