(National Sentinel) Alt-Left: A writer for Teen Vogue said in a recent column that if men who are wrongly accused of sexual harassment wind up losing their jobs, she thinks that’s not a problem.
Columnist Emily Lindin claimed she wasn’t “concerned” about “innocent men losing their jobs over false sexual assault/harassment allegations,” this week.
“Here’s an unpopular opinion: I’m actually not at all concerned about innocent men losing their jobs over false sexual assault/harassment allegations,” declared Teen Vogue’s Lindin in a series of posts on Twitter.
“False allegations VERY rarely happen, so even bringing it up borders on a derailment tactic. It’s a microscopic risk in comparison to the issue at hand (worldwide, systemic oppression of half the population).”
She did not accompany her claims with statistics or facts.
Her opinion was immediately assailed by others on Twitter, including CNN‘s Jake Tapper, who tweeted, “I’m guessing you didn’t get a good grade for your 7th grade book report on To Kill A Mockingbird.”
In response, Linden appeared to accuse Tapper of being sexist.
“I wish you would have set a better example of how to have a conversation on Twitter. Instead you piled on with a deliberate misreading,” she tweeted.
Tapper responded: “I read the thread. You said ‘if some innocent men’s reputations have to take a hit in the process of undoing the patriarchy, that is a price I am absolutely willing to pay.’ That’s immoral. And it’s not a price *you* would be paying, btw. It would be innocent men doing that.”
Donald Trump Jr. also weighed in. “Yea who cares if innocent men lose their jobs or spend a few years in jail? This is the left today, and they’re only getting worse. These are the true fascists,” he said in a tweet.
Lindin has since set her Twitter account, which has over 23,000 followers, to private.
Teen Vogue, which is set to be guest-edited by two-time losing presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in December, has previously faced controversy. In July, writer Lauren Duca posted, “Wake me up when men are obsolete,” on Twitter.
