This week in Joy Ladin fuckery. Unbelievable.
It sucks that the author of that was gangpiled for being who she is (but did people really expect Gawker to hire someone humble from Wisconsin? c’mon) because what she’s saying is solid. These dudes really do want to push themselves into women’s lives and then be completely erased from the narrative since they know what they deserve.
Yep, fairly obvious misogynist codes there.
And typical arrogance of male privilege to begin the *first sentence* of his review of his ex-wife’s book by implying she’s too emotive to know what she’s talking about.
I feel for Christine Benvenuto.
when you’re in a relationship with someone it neither belongs solely to you or the other party, it belongs to both of you jointly, and before spreading the intimate details of your personal lives around for all to see you should check that it’s something both of you are ok with. perhaps if joy had done that and taken actually christine’s views into consideration and respected them when writing their book (which came out first), then christine wouldn’t have felt it necessary to try and redress the balance.
