Yes, I know he is a troll... But he is really fucking winding me up at the moment. He annoys me more than people like Katie Hopkins do!

He has been tweeting a lot today, and the past few weeks, about the importance of transgender acceptance. However, he isn't engaging with the many people disagreeing with him! He just posts another passive-aggressive tweet in response to concerns.

I just know we are going to get another shitty pro-trans article from him soon...

(I obviously do support trans people, but I am against the ideology!)

I never read or follow anything he says, it helps a lot with not having any thoughts about him whatsoever. Just like KH, he needs the attention.

When I read/hear Owen Jones, I get the absolute certainty of a Commissar.

At least Katie Hopkins will respond to the opposing side! That's why he winds me up more, he just ignores the opposing argument and shuts down debate by shouting "TERF", "bigot", and "homophobe". His arguments are wafer-thin.

He’s a whiny little twat. Shouldn’t be given the oxygen of publicity. The only reason he has a column is the grauniad feels it has to dish out the odd sweetie to token representatives of the northern working classes.

he is a fucking twat.

Miffer Thu 16-Nov-17 21:56:02

I quite liked him in that interview he walked out of.

Other than that I had him pegged as a twat a long time ago.

Little Owen Jones (LOJ) is a twunt of the first water.

He's also a massive transphobe when it comes to trans men (refuses to perform oral sex on one, despite ordering lesbians to suck trans women's cocks).

The only women he likes have cocks.

We were once staying in a hotel and a very drunk man at the bar aggressively and persistently came onto my DH while reciting political speeches from the 80s. At first DH was amused but then it all got too tactile and the man wouldn’t stop despite DH asking politely and firmly many times. Eventually three men had to drag the man off DH while the he shouted that i should go to bed and leave them alone. That was Owen Jones. He is not a nice human being. I’m surprised there haven’t been Kevin Spacey type stories about him.

He's Rik from The Young Ones.

IndominusRex Thu 16-Nov-17 22:11:56

That so does not surprise me.

Backingvocals Thu 16-Nov-17 22:13:01

I wish there was a like button for that doctor

@Miffer

I agreed with his points in that interview, but he shouldn't have walked off just because things weren't going his way. The whole point of debate is to listen to the different points and argue against them. Storming off is undemocratic.

It’s always more disappointing to me when it’s left-wing men. When some ultra-conservative type turns out to have shit views about women I’m never surprised, but the lefty blokes, I always hold out hope. “Oooh, he’s talking about feminism and how we should listen to women! Maybe this one gets it!”

Every time. You’d think I’d learn by now.

Owen Jones…

Sleeps with trans women.

Recoils in disgust at cunnilingus on a trans man.

Yet berates lesbians for not falling onto the almighty trans woman dick.

How can a gay man AND a gay woman both be attracted to the same group of people?

If homosexuality is about SEX (as it is, the clue’s in the name), then he is wrong for his castigation of lesbians for transphobia.

If homosexuality is actually about gender, then he needs to get over himself and get acquainted downstairs with a nice sexy trans man.

DJBaggySmalls Thu 16-Nov-17 22:23:42

He blocked me on Twitter after the 'telling lesbians to suck dick' saga when I reminded him that homophobia is a hate crime.
He walked away from that mess and people have forgiven him.

cuirderussie Thu 16-Nov-17 22:25:27

He is an epic bellend. I wish he'd block me on Twitter, I expect it'll happen soon because he doesn't like gobby feminists. I try to ignore him but then someone I follow will retweet his latest outrage!

53rdWay Thu 16-Nov-17 22:31:05

But if he blocked you, you’d miss classics like him explaining today that it’s “male chauvinism” that makes feminists disagree with him about trans issues! (Oh, Owen, you pillock.)

I wonder what a Venn diagram of Owen Jones and Josh Rivers would look like?

doctorcuntybollocks Thu 16-Nov-17 22:38:40

Owen responds to his critics with a carefully reasoned argument.

AssassinatedBeauty Thu 16-Nov-17 22:39:20

I'd not heard of Josh Rivers until I read of his sacking today. He's a piece of work.

nauticant Thu 16-Nov-17 22:53:05

If you have the time AssassinatedBeauty (and the patience) have a listen to Josh Rivers' "explanation" of his racist, misogynist, homophobic, anti-Semitic, and transphobic views on Radio 4 PM:

www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p05n8qy6

The "I am the victim in all of this" stance is extraordinary.

AssassinatedBeauty Thu 16-Nov-17 23:08:19

I don't think I have the required calmness at the moment. He's clearly so hatefully misogynist (and the rest) that I don't want to engage with it at all.

FloraFox Thu 16-Nov-17 23:15:10

If a bunch of mums is calling you a misogynist you could pause to think. Or, if you are Owen Jones, you could respond that you are listening to women - the women with cocks.

SeaRabbit Fri 17-Nov-17 07:08:10

Wow I’ve just had a look on little Owen’s Twitter feed. So many men going ’lalala I can’t hear you’ in response to sensible points made by those who think ‘cis’ before ‘women’ is unnecessary.
