Follow-Up on "Cat Person"

On Saturday, I shared a story published in The New Yorker: Cat Person by Kristen Roupenian. It's an excellent read I highly recommend.

Today, I discovered someone set up a Twitter account that just retweets negative reactions to the story by men. It's glorious.

And yes, before you say it, I know #NotAllMen hated this story. And I would imagine, many of these men who are responding negatively to the story are self-professed nice guys - in my estimation, probably the ones who say idiotic expressions like YOLO and "nice guys finish last" completely in earnest. But if words like "whore" and "cunt" and "bitch" are right on the tip of your tongue when a woman doesn't respond in the way you'd like, sorry, but you're not a nice guy. And if you find yourself rooting for a guy who calls a woman a whore just because she isn't interested in seeing him, I suggest you take a good long look at yourself: you're part of the problem.
