On controlling the narrative and who makes history re: Hugo Schwyzer

I need to put this one last thing in writing as an addendum to my previous post about Hugo Schwyzer. In the interview posted in NYMag, where he talks about his behavior as “off brand” he also states that he thinks of Jay Smooth and Ta-Nehisi Coates as examples of male allies for feminism.

Well, isn’t that surprising Professor Feminism considering these are the two names I mentioned in this here interview in The Atlantic where I carefully explained why you are not fit to speak about feminism? This was in February 2012. That more than one and half year later you still haven’t been able to come up with your own ideas is testament to what a poor hack you are.

You can try to write your own history within feminism. Some of us still keep archives and bookmarks.

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you.  Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
