Teen Vogue Columnist Emily Linden, who’s also the founder of the Unslut project went on a rampage yesterday. She effectively said she did not care that innocent men suffer consequences of false sexual harassment accusations in the workplace. Twitter was stunned. The writer and activist went on to explain her reasoning, and we have to say it still doesnt make A. Lick. Of. Sense.
Emily was immediately assaulted with a barrage of criticism as people tried to make her see the error of her tweets, but she stuck to her guns. When she could no longer take the criticism, she turned her Twitter feed private.
It’s incredible that a worldy-wise, educated woman, whose Unslut project is supposed to be about gender equality, holds this sort of opinion in this day and age.
She talks about about it being okay for innocent men’s reputations to take a hit so as to undo patriarchy, but that’s just exchanging one form of oppression for another.
Two wrongs have never made a right, especially when it’s an innocent life.
Twitter told her as much:

she's 'not at all concerned' about false sexual harassment [email protected] So it's OK to ruin families so long as it's an end to means. You’re a sick woman, and certainly, do not believe in this country's Law's of equality

Bawhahaha @EmilyLindin you are a hack. If you really wanna #unslut America, you should start with your sister hack Bette Midler. You tripped over your tongue lady, brush your knees off and move along! #dontspeakforwomen #notyourforte https://t.co/akFk5M4qmV

“I don’t care about innocent men losing their livelihoods”
“Um, a lot of them are black”
“OMG I TOTALLY CARE”
Amazing 3-tweet story. pic.twitter.com/yfDjpUTXs2

You mean, like a long form article standing up for the character of @MonicaLewinsky when the Clinton WH was smearing her and the media was attacking her like locusts? Like that kind of story defending women?

Emily Lindin’s tweet demonstrates the mindset among some that whenever an injustice has been done the solution is an equal and opposite injustice.

I read that thread and was disgusted. I’m glad she was put in her place. Guilty men should face consequences. Innocent men should NOT. https://t.co/8n17mNtJbS

Emily Lindin is a Grade A piece of shhhh🤫 — and it brings me great joy to see BlackTwitter and WhiteTwitter, collectively, dragging her for the filth that she is. I hope her reputation takes a serious hit for this one 👇🏾 pic.twitter.com/LeoLyKtdwE

Teen Vogue writer @emilylindin says innocent men should lose their jobs even if falsely accused of sexual harassment. Cable news bookers – you have your booking marching orders. And Teen Vogue? You might want to address this quickly. pic.twitter.com/SFEtxUzzTR

If you want us to believe accusers no matter what, it's probably not a great idea to casually mention that they might be lying to destroy innocent men and you're okay with that, @EmilyLindin. pic.twitter.com/N1S2iFSz7Q

I never knew my uncle. He was supposedly an amazing artist and a kind and sensitive man. A woman he knew accused him of raping her. After he took his own life out of shame she admitted that she lied. She was just trying to hurt him because he rejected her advances.

Trump weighs in
Yea who cares if innocent men lose their jobs or spend a few years in jail?This is the left today, and they’re only getting worse. These are the true fascists. https://t.co/otsdMFvEf0

People like Emily Lindin ruin feminism for us.
When the call for equality and equity crosses the line into man hating gender superiority, you're no longer interested in ending oppression.
You just want to be the new oppressors.

Not concerned about egregious miscarriages of justice which could lead to financial ruin, destroyed relationships and perhaps even suicide. It’s an unpopular opinion because it’s a reprehensible opinion.

There’s a reason it’s an unpopular opinion: It’s neither intelligent nor moral. https://t.co/ZohDrMyZt7
