Author John Scalzi was on a roll this morning (currently 7:14 AM, 26 Sept. 2014) with a tweet he found from some guy sending out an “ultimatum” to women to “make a choice” between feminism and, well, men like him. So Scalzi launched into a truly magnificent set of scorchers, which I’m posting here for the delectation of people everywhere.

Also: I would like to thank that guy for setting the ultimatum. It makes finding a boyfriend so much easier when the undesirable ones wear a placard identifying themselves.

DAMN SON

There is no problem that sass cannot solve

awkward how reassuring i find this

well ya duh society shames speech patterns associated with young women

"Speech fillers" are just a human’s way of saying "wait a sec I’m thinking". It means we think more before we speak, always trying to find the right way to say it. Every language has them. And people shouldn’t be annoyed by it, ever.


"Like" is today’s "um" or "er." Instead of pausing awkwardly mid sentence, we say "like" as a filler to keep the sentence moving. It has everything to do with articulation and thought and very very very little to do with a lack of intelligence. That it spread first amongst women is just sort of indicative of the fact that we have a tendency to listen and subconsciously mimic our peers more.It’s like if you go abroad and find yourself picking up an accent. Same thing.
