I’ve been banned from posting here it seems, my reply will be in the comments section.
there is a special place in hell for writers who utilize the false equivalence when writing about radical feminists versus misogynists. you writers know who you are — dont you? for readers who need examples, try here and here.
its not just the intellectual laziness or even outright lying of the false equivalence generally that sticks in my craw, although those things are like sandpaper on my brain because they are, well, intellectually lazy. and lies. for real writers and thinkers, these things are the scene of a crime. coming across one or the other while reading someone elses (or even your own — oops!) work is like stumbling upon a crime scene. its a crime against writing and thinking. i cannot overstate how violently criminal this is, like mens poetry which uses letters and words to obscure various truths, and to contort and obfuscate information rather than convey it.
