According to Politics USA, Twitter has pulled #GodIsNotGreat but left, or reinstated, #ReasonstoBeatYourGirlfriend as trending topic hashtag thingies. I had no idea Twitter controlled which terms are used but I’m glad they can pull offensive ones. But obviously they screwed this one up.
Folks, “god is not great” is not offensive. “Reasons to beat your girlfriend” is.
You totally shouldn’t be alarmed just because 20% of American women have been raped and 25% have been attacked by a husband or partner, I mean that’s only like 1/4 of all American women. Yeah, this is just so darn funny. Also, there is zero connection between participating in the great joke of tweeting out reasons to beat your girlfriend and the actual astounding level of violence aimed at American women. It’s not as if the attitude that it’s funny makes it okay or anything.
It’s just a joke. Lighten up, FemiNazis!
OK, now what you should do is tweet this post and the article I linked to and see what happens.
UPDATE: Gizmodo, and various religous moderates and stuff, claim that none of this is true. See this.
