Feminists are shaming men who violate social distancing guidelines during the coronavirus pandemic by soliticing in-person dates from women on apps like Tinder and Bumble.
Mashable published an op/ed on Friday accusing men of “harassing women on dating apps to meet up and break social distancing rules.” The feminist author Anna Iovine set up the narrative that it is only men responsible for lonely people hooking up on dating apps during the pandemic, and women are helpless little victims who cannot be held responsible for their own actions.
She claimed without providing anything other than anecdotal evidence that “there are some people — specifically men — who are going to lengths to harass and gaslight women to try to convince them to meet up with them, or to shame them when they refuse.”
Iovine cited some whining from feminist Instagram influencer Samantha Rothenberg about mean messages that are being sent over dating apps that are allegedly hurting the feelings of some low IQ snowflakes who don’t know how use the “Block” setting.
“Since social distancing has been mandated, I’ve received hundreds (possibly thousands) of submissions featuring screenshots of people who are not only attempting to meet up right now, but who are also actively shaming and harassing those who turn them down,” Rothenberg said to Mashable.
She is encouraging people to rat on other users who have not bought into the coronavirus hysteria, as citizen snitching takes off amongst a fear-addled population.
“It’s hard not to feel completely helpless in the face of so much tragedy, and as someone with an audience who looks to me for dating-themed content, I knew that going for something in that vein is where I could be most impactful,” Rothenberg said about her Big Brother social media push on dating apps.
She has started a petition demanding that dating applications police their users to make sure they do not leave their house, with users being banned who refuse to abide by social distancing edicts.
“A number of people have reported unconscionable activity on dating apps to me – everything from being mocked for abiding by social distancing rules to being outright propositioned for sex. The perpetrators are a threat not only to themselves, but to society at large,” she wrote on her petition.
Rothenberg gave the following three suggestions for dating apps to take during the coronavirus pandemic:
1. Make it possible to report users for irresponsible behavior.
2. Send a warning to anyone who attempts to violate social distancing.
3. Ban users who are reported multiple times.
Feminists are looking for ways to punish men during the coronavirus pandemic, which includes lobbying tech companies to further isolate them from companionship as lockdown tyranny grips the world.
YOUR NEW MASTER: Twitter’s Head of Conversational Safety, a “Young, Queer Asian-American Businesswoman,” is “Rethinking” the Concept of User Safety
Do you trust someone like her to make Twitter “a safer place”?
The media company Protocol, a sister site of Politico, recently published an article about Twitter’s new “head of product for conversational safety,” Christine Su. It claims that Su, a “young, queer Asian-American businesswoman,” is revolutionizing what “user safety” on social media means.
Twitter hired Su around six months ago to be in charge of “what might be the most difficult task on Twitter,” despite having no apparent experience in politics, programming, and media relations. But Twitter seems to like her for her “creative” and “somewhat radical new ideas” about user safety.
“As a queer woman of color who is an Asian American in tech in rural America, that experience is a very intersectional one. I’ve had plenty of experiences moving through spaces where I wanted more safety,” Su said.
Protocol writes that Su’s vision incorporates “transformative and procedural justice.” Transformative justice ostensibly refers to a non-retributive form of repairing harm done to someone and preventing it from happening again; procedural justice to enacting a set of rules that “make harm rarer in the first place.”
This all sounds nice and dandy—but beware. So-called transformative and procedural justice will not benefit you, but will crush you. Anything that’s perceived as “harmful” against “women and people from marginalized groups” can and will be used to censor you. Christine Su may reassuringly claim that “the point is not to make the entire world a safe space,” but she’s open about the fact that she will help give the Coalition of the Fringes more control over what people are allowed to do and say on Twitter.
Examples from the article:
- Creating an audio hangout feature called “Spaces,” which will allow users to determine who is allowed to participate, as well as who can speak and when. (Note that it’s being tested on “women and marginalized groups of people” first.)
- Potentially doubling down on functions that “encourage people to read content before reposting it.” (Which is exclusively done to censor or limit the reach of conservative and other right-wing content.)
- Building tools that “create private pathways for apologies, forgiveness and deescalation.” (The finer details are still a work in progress according to Su.)
- Defining what a “meaningful conversation” is. (Would people like Su think that anything right-wingers say or believe belongs in a “meaningful conversation”? Let’s just say I wouldn’t bet money on it…)
You know full well that a company like Facebook would shortly follow suit. After all, it’s not just Twitter that Su is “revolutionizing,” but the concept of social media itself. Figure out where all this is heading.
