Jolyon resorting tactic C - ‘I’m being bullied by nasty feminists’

Basically he behaves like an utter cunt to GC women patronising & belittling their responses & then blocking them when he (as usual) can’t come up with a coherent argument

When in exasperation someone posts something shitty about him, he clutched his pearls

He's been catching flak for his cowardice in announcing chicken GC wimmins have refused to discuss the trans issue with him, then backtracking at roughly the speed of sound when Kathleen Stock said sure, let's do this.

And now he's dug up a month old tweet from Julie Bindel to be wounded by.

I'm sure the two things are completely unrelated.

Yet he started out talking complete GC sense.

This is the extremist zeal of one brought to heel.

Not too late to reclaim your rationality, Jolyon!

Tea hahah yes I saw that. Started to blather on about debates v discussions - made himself look a complete bell end 😆

Eminent QCs tend to want to be judges. Do wonder what his chances would be now.

She said he 'must be hung like a Tac Tac' (as an aside - lol!) it's hardly a violent threat or really abusive is it? Look at what women get thrown at them on Twitter all the time!

Men are afraid that women will laugh at them, women are afraid that men will kill them.

So let me get this straight. The other day he was complaining about jk Rowling exercising her rights to sue for libel because it silences opponents and is censorship, which is just unfair and mean. Today in response to a joke about his dick he laments how Julie Bindel isn’t being run out of public life? It looks like JM is perfectly fine with cancel culture if the person being cancelled has hurt his feelings.

What a fragile ego that man has.

ItsAllGoingToBeFine Sun 26-Jul-20 10:58:36

To be fair to him, from his tweets I suspect he is very close to a transwoman which kind of puts him in a difficult position.

Though that only excuses his shift to TWAW, not his arrogance and misogyny.

He blocked me for asking why he didn't politely ask the fox to leave his henhouse.

He should have followed his own advice and tutted loudly.

Hahaha love that 'metaphorical schlong'!!!

It's childish but funny. Also interesting he had to trawl through the whole of twitter for weeks and weeks to find something that in any way resembled 'abuse' (I'd call it mockery, myself). Wonder how long I'd have to trawl to find examples of abuse aimed at Julie Bindel? This man is utterly pathetic. I'm embarrassed for him.

Also the people commenting "imagine the outrage if women were judged on the size of their breasts" WHAT PLANET ARE YOU LIVING ON YOU UTTER TOSSERS

“Of course, the analogy is far from perfect, but if a man who was a public figure spoke to a woman like this he would (rightly) be drummed out of public life.”

Can anyone think of any recent occasion when a male public figure spoke to a woman like this and was not drummed out of public life in any way?

SlipperyLizard Sun 26-Jul-20 12:09:11

Just realised I’m blocked by him now (I was t yesterday) despite my only interaction being liking some of the tweets from GC women!
