According to Fox News, Teen Vogue columnist and outspoken feminist Emily Lindin came under fire on social media Tuesday after tweeting that she was “not at all concerned about innocent men losing their jobs” over false allegations of sexual assault.
Lindin explained the reasoning for her “unpopular opinion” in a multi-part tweet, claiming that “false allegations VERY rarely happen, so even bringing it up borders on a derailment tactic. It’s a microscopic risk in comparison to the issue at hand (worldwide, systemic oppression of half the population).”
People like Emily Lindin ruin feminism for us.
When the call for equality and equity crosses the line into man hating gender superiority, you’re no longer interested in ending oppression.
You just want to be the new oppressors.

“The benefit of all of us getting to finally tell the truth + the impact on victims FAR outweigh the loss of any one man’s reputation.
If some innocent men’s reputations have to take a hit in the process of undoing the patriarchy, that is a price I am absolutely willing to pay.”

And she continued to dig her own hole…
“How many of our reputations have suffered unfairly?”
“How many of our lives have ALREADY BEEN destroyed because of physical violence against us? Why was that acceptable, but now one man’s (potentially) unfair loss of a career opportunity is not?”
There’s a reason it’s an unpopular opinion: It’s neither intelligent nor moral. https://t.co/ZohDrMyZt7

CNN anchor Jake Tapper proceeded to educate Lindin with this brutal tweet referencing the classic novel that features the trial of a black man falsely accused of rape in 1930s Alabama…
“I’m guessing you didn’t get a good grade for your 7th grade book report on To Kill A Mockingbird.”

When Lindin tried to respond to Tapper, she was immediately cut off….
“You said ‘if some innocent men’s reputations have to take a hit in the process of undoing the patriarchy, that is a price I am absolutely willing to pay.’ That’s immoral. And it’s not a price *you* would be paying, btw. It would be innocent men doing that.”
I read the thread. You said “if some innocent men’s reputations have to take a hit in the process of undoing the patriarchy, that is a price I am absolutely willing to pay.” That’s immoral. And it’s not a price *you* would be paying, btw. It would be innocent men doing that.

The entire incident forced Lindin to make her Twitter feed private, leading to even more social media backlash.
Much to our shock, Lindin is the founder of The UnSlut Project, a group that claims to promote “gender equality, sex positivity, and comprehensive, age-appropriate sex education for all ages” on its website. An email request for comment was not immediately returned.
Lindin’s byline last appeared on Teen Vogue’s website in July of this year.
Past articles by Lindin include the headlines such as “What You Need to Know Before Sending a Nude Photo” and “6 Ways You May Be Slut-Shaming Without Realizing It.”

Tucker Carlson weighed in on the Lindin tweet during his opening segment, warning viewers to not let anonymous accusations go unchecked. The accused have the right to face their accuser.
Not everyone accused of a sexual crime is guilty and not every accuser is telling the truth, which is why due process and the rule of law is critical. No matter what the charge, the accused have a right to face their accuser.
Carlson had crazy eyes, liberal looney Cathy Areu to debate the Lindin article.
Areu was on Carlson’s show in the past proclaiming that “Women Are Just Better Than Men!”
Carlson educated Areu as if a father was speaking to a two year old child, reminding the triggered feminist that anonymous accusations always lead to abuses, and not everyone accused of a sex offense is guilty.
Areu, dumbfounded and perplexed by Tuckers’ logic, fell back into her “I hate men, women are better” safe space, noting that American society never had “warlock or wizard hunts”, but witch hunts…and that for hundreds of years women have been “abused.”
For Areu, having innocent men jailed is a minor inconvenience, in the quest to bring down the patriarchy.
Ms. Areu forgot the hundreds of millions of men who have been “abused” by being carted off to die in wars, or the millions of men who have been sent off to work in gulags and camps without trial.
To be even more succinct, Ms. Areu forgot all about today’s prison statistics, which clearly show one gender occupying the bulk of the prison population in America.
