This is what I've been bombarded with on my Facebook all day. The thread keeps on growing. But it's definitely the radical feminists who are the ones full of hatred... hmm

Thought I'd take the opportunity of the commercialised weird Catholic celebratory day to wish you the FWR Women all well, thank you for all you do for women and girls, and hope that today and every day you have people around you that you can love and trust.

Tossers be tossin'.

Happy Galentines day too to all the women here smile

Wow, who are these people and why do you have to see them on Facebook?

Lordfrontpaw Fri 14-Feb-20 16:59:36

Are you in a group for thick teenagers?

RadicalFern Fri 14-Feb-20 17:02:02

GCAcademic I know about half of them. It's alarming to discover how many of my friends apparently wouldn't even piss on me if I were on fire if they find out that I don't believe the thing that they believe.

RadicalFern Fri 14-Feb-20 17:02:33

They're all 20s-30s

Cull your Facebook flowers

ChattyLion Fri 14-Feb-20 17:26:14

Oh I thought this would be an ‘I love you all’ type of nice thread. Ugh, wankers. Nobody’s got time for that shit. Have some nice chocolate to celebrate the day OP.flowers

RadicalFern Fri 14-Feb-20 17:57:17

ChattyLion sorry for the disappointment but thanks for the flowers, do have some yourself! I did want to use as an opportunity to share my own love for this section of Mumsnet. But yes. The catalyst was very Ugh.

I'm having dinner with my lovely flatmates who don't believe people are akin to clownfish. And then chocolate...

ChattyLion Fri 14-Feb-20 19:46:17

Excellent! Happy Valentine’s Day! glitterball

Gosh I also thought this would be an I love you thread too, and was just abandoning DH popping on to post a wine

Let's just take a moment to compare this type of speech against women, with the apparently actionable by police speech by say, Harry and Kate.

Did either tell anyone to "die in a fire" ? Or make rape/death threats? No, they did not.

theflushedzebra Fri 14-Feb-20 20:07:57

And yes, def cull your facebook.

ScrimshawTheSecond Fri 14-Feb-20 20:12:12

Why are you friends with such horrible people? It's one thing to disagree, but I doubt many of my friends (even the wokest) who would write stuff about people dying in fires, etc.

ScrimshawTheSecond Fri 14-Feb-20 20:12:57

And yes, hot chocolate and some homegrown flowers from me to all the lovely vipers of MN.

theflushedzebra Fri 14-Feb-20 20:15:14

They're not even good Roses are Red poems.

I put a fab one in DH's card grin

Men have been doing this to opinionated women since the early days of the internet.
It has never stopped.
There are a significant number of men who get an ego boost and a sense of power from abusing people. The internet has created the perfect conditions for this behavior to be indulged in with impunity.

RadicalFern Fri 14-Feb-20 20:30:46

It would be more accurate to call them friendly acquaintances. We share a common hobby...

I have to say that standard of poetry on this board has made me very very picky about impromptu verse. Nevertheless, I shall endeavour...

Roses are red.
Boy brains aren't blue.
Time to cull my friend list.
And write poems for you.

FloralBunting Fri 14-Feb-20 20:36:51

Roses are red,
There will be no conflagration
Women will win
Their own liberation!

Love you all, genuinely. KBO ❤

BringbackLang Fri 14-Feb-20 20:43:03

Roses are red,
Poetry is dire.
I'm a massive knobhead because I think
T@rfs can die in a fire

There fixed it for them. wink

refusetobeasheep Fri 14-Feb-20 20:46:35

Just tell them to Be Nice .....

MrsTerryPratchett Fri 14-Feb-20 20:49:51

Haiku are better

Meet saint Valentine
Married couples secretly
He got his head chopped

Less misogynistic I suppose.

FloralBunting Fri 14-Feb-20 21:54:57

Roses are red
I won't be kind
All who object
May kiss my behind.

Ereshkigalangcleg Fri 14-Feb-20 23:16:59

Floral wine

FloralBunting Fri 14-Feb-20 23:18:27

Roses are red,
I'll say it in verse,
Ask for my kindness,
Kindly - you first.

(I have had help with these from my eager young radfem daughters)

Ereshkigalangcleg Fri 14-Feb-20 23:18:44

Roses are red
Years I've clocked up
I want to kill women
I should be locked up
