Update: Moderation is now off.
I’m late coming to this story and don’t have time to do a proper write up on this (I’ll be turning on moderation tonight). But see this story for an introduction and what looks like a screenshot of the tweet that started it all. I can’t find the original tweet, so I suspect she has since deleted it*.
In a nutshell:
- McAllister tweeted about an interaction she had with her husband while he was watching a ballgame. Her husband has game. She reacted to him with a quiet and gentle spirit, and brought him a beer.
- Ugly feminists shrieked in horror at the thought of a woman not being an ugly feminist, and accused her husband of being abusive. One ugly feminist responded by declaring that being called woman and bringing her husband a beer was “A fate worse than death”.
- A gay journalist jumped in on the criticism of her and her husband (see below), and as a result of the exchange McAllister was fired.
