Hugo Schwyzer? Have a Gottdamn Seat, Sir.
Apparently, someone finally called Hugo Schwyzer to ask him why he GBCW’d*** the Internet. I guess the Internet stopped returning his calls, and when he called the Internet the last time to say he wasn’t calling the Internet anymore, the Internet let that shit go to voicemail, and actually never listened to the message because who the fuck leaves voicemails anymore.
One reason you became a punching bag is that there just are not many men writing feminist columns online. Why is that?
Look at me. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be me? If you look at the men who are writing about feminism, they toe the line very carefully. It’s almost like they take their cues from the women around them. Men are afraid of women’s anger. It’s very hard for men to stand up to women’s anger. I did for a long time until finally my mental health had to be a priority. I just got out of the hospital. I’m not shy about that. I’m sober, but I checked myself into a psych ward for a week, when I became a danger to myself.
“Men are afraid of women’s anger,” he said.
“It’s very hard for men to stand up to women’s anger.”
That’s Hugo Schwyzer, ladies and gentleman — the man who blogged about the fact that he tried to fucking murder his ex-girlfriend.
I can’t even.
***That’s “Goodbye Cruel World” for you noobs out there.
