Chief Brody, @ ChiefBrody19

And you wonder why we don’t want men like you in our safe spaces… you utter bloody clown.

@ jamesstout talks about me in his article, but wants me to be silent. How’s that working for you???

Cathy Devine, @ cathydevine56

Wow. Self-confessed [male] 'hack' talks to [female] 3 x Olympian like this. Because she points out that no amount of T suppression removes puberty-related [male] advantage in TW. The abuse women go through for speaking up defend a level playing field for female athletes. Silencing tactics.

Can we also talk about how that title is lazy clickbait shit straight out of this Ryan Long sketch

Immigrant lol. I don't know why but I get the feel he means his ancestors immigrated from Normandy back in the 11th century. 😂

MAMIL! Oh I’m gonna remember and use that one. They are everywhere on the roads around me in their groovy gear. They behave like they own the road and that basic traffic laws don’t apply to them. They are PITAs and make me nuts. I just love reducing my speed to 5 mph, keeping a respectful distance and waiting for oncoming traffic to thin so I can safely pass one, (or two abreast!) and then he blows right by me at the stop sign or traffic light, putting me behind him AGAIN. To have to do it all over AGAIN.

Man with irrelevant opinions ✔️ Writing an article for a website not meant for him ✔️ Blames his problems on women ✔️ Silences women ✔️

We got a grade A male feminist here. Classic. Oh what will we ever do without such an “amazing” ally.

Also this gives me “I’m literally the guy in the pic” meme vibes lolol

I swear Twitter led to the normalization of supposed "professionals" acting like rabid dogs. How can you speak like that and be taken seriously rather than ostracized?
