With all the sexual assault allegations being reported including rape, some may be concerned that innocent men will pay the price for false reports. While some others like Teen Vogue writer, Emily Lindin, could care less.
Lindin tweeted, “Here’s an unpopular opinion: I’m actually not at all concerned about innocent men losing their jobs over false sexual assault/harassment allegations.”
She continues, “First, 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).
Because statistically, false allegations “very” rarely occur, Lindin says she’s okay with men losing their careers or possibly going to jail for false accusations.
In response to the posts, CNN anchor Jake Tapper replied, “I’m guessing you didn’t get a good grade for your 7th-grade book report on To Kill A Mockingbird,” while Donald Trump Jr. also commented on the incident.
In response to Tapper tweet, Lindin did some back peddling on her outrages tweet. The Teen Vogue writer came back with blame on people deliberately misreading her tweet. She wrote, “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.”
Jake then basically called Lindin out that there really wasn’t any misreading on her intentional tweet.
“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.”
Trump Jr. also got into the mix as well.
Teen Vogue previously faced controversy in July when writer Lauren Duca posted, “Wake me up when men are obsolete,” on Twitter.
Also in July, the teen-centered magazine was criticized for an anal sex tutorial for its young readers.
