Anyway, a friend on facebook updated their status asking if there were any men with a drivers license who needed a job, to which I asked if the work could be done by a woman (because I always seem to feel the need to comment on things that seem like they might be sexist). When I found out that it was for an actual company, I asked which one, so I could send some female friends down to apply, considering that sounds like a human rights violation.
One of her friends wrote
you must be gay!!! thats a gay woman's answer!!!
Because I guess only gay women care if men can apply for a job that they cannot. A mutual friend told them that their comment was totally uncalled for, to which this person responded
Am I wrong?????? If so I apologize. But I bet I'm right.
Why is it that he only has to apologize if I am not gay... if I am, then it is perfectly acceptable for him to talk about my sexuality on someone else's facebook wall based on a one sentence comment about why women couldn't apply for the job as well.
When I informed him that you don't have to be a lesbian to be a feminist (because I don't know when to walk away from an argument online) he responded with
it's ok really, i like pussy too.
Are you??? and i'm surprised you never spelled it " WOMYN"
So, I guess my point is if you think someone sounds queer in a facebook comment, great. But don't feel the need to post about it repeatedly. I was tempted for a while to comment on every post he wrote saying something like "you must be straight, with a comment like that" but figured it he wasn't worth the time and effort.
Also, am I the only person that seems to have repeated offensive conversations on facebook?
