How to Prove a Game Is Neither Offensive, Misogynist or Transphobic ….

Twitter is just full of “harmless” humour based on the denigration of women. Those who indulge in this kind of “fun” generally dislike women pointing out that such humour is not “harmless” but contributes to a culture of misogyny and violence. To prove that their humour has no relation to misogyny they do this by insulting, harassing and attacking the women in question. Patriarchy is anything but self-aware.

The tweets featured arise from objections to a Twitter “humorous” game known as “cock or no cock” which uses the hashtag #CONC. There is also a Twiiter account @Cockornocock.

Objections were raised by trans women who felt that this “game” reinforces the prejudices they face daily. The insults that they received from its defenders are the usual misogynist mix of insult, denigration and mockery. You guessed it. To prove that they the game was neither offensive, misogynous or transphobic they resorted to offensive misogynous transphobic language.

As always, we send our #solidarity to all those targeted.
