The most excellent thing has happened. Bahar Mustafa, the Welfare and Diversity Officer that tweeted the #KillAllWhiteMen hashtag and told white men to stay away from her events has been charged with hate-speech.
There is a Swedish proverb, “Den som gräver en grop åt andra, faller ofta själv däri“, roughly translated to English as “The one digging a pit for others, tend to end up in it.” – this is a grand example. As feminists want to censor the web from the big bad men tweeting awful messages, a feminist tweeting awful messages at men gets arrested for the stuff they want to censor. So I must admit, I can’t help but to smirk a little. The irony.
My comic strip on the matter is by far the only commentary out there on Laci Green’s video on what constitutes humor [link]. In this post you will find a bunch of videos on the topic that might give you a bit more insight into the matter. It should come as no surprise that someone that keeps playing the “offended”-card will piss off a lot of people that values the freedoms of the western society; pesky little things such as the right to free speech.
To quote some wise men on the importance of free speech (as it turns out, finding quotes by women on the matter was harder than expected):
“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” – George Orwell
“I may not agree with you, but I will defend to the death your right to make an ass of yourself.” – Oscar Wilde
“If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” – George Washington
