PZ Myers, The Ally Who's Trying Too Hard
Content notice: sexual objectification.
Is there even one cishet white male who is not a scumbag? Is there? I doubt it. srsly. I doubt it very much. Yeah, I can hear you think: "But...but...surely, there are many who are allies, they can't be all bad?" Wrong. Yes, they are all bad. And more and more I've come to the conclusion that it's especially
our so-called allies who are bad. They're the worst.
My co-blogger on this network, the esteemed Heina Dadabhoy, who is currently engaged in the writing of the first anti-Islam book that is not islamophobic, and who is bravely battling sizeist abuse and transphobia from the usual suspects, our Heina has just written a post in which she proved that Dan Linford is not safe, especially for femme women and femme AFAB non-binary people
Who da fuck is Dan Linford? If, like me, you had never heard of the dude before, it will come as a shock to learn that he was one of those predators who pretended to be one of us. A feminist ally. Anyways, since Heina provides all the evidence you need, I will just step over this piece of filth, to draw attention to another one. One who has so far managed to sleaze his way through our circles, in spite of all the tells that showed him for what he was.
Yeah, I'm talking about PZ fucking Myers. PZ Myers, who openly defended Terfia Benson against trans people who were fighting for their right of existence
. Myers, who accused said trans people of tribalism, thereby with one stone denying our lived experiences and making it seem as if tribes are just backwards, brown people who can be freely ridiculed.
Like the true predator he is, he pretends that he welcomes the exposure of his fellow predators. So when he read Heina's outing of Dan Lindford as a predator, Myers knew exactly how to react so as to seem on the right side
I’m horrified, too. Hitting on students? Unforgivable. Trying to manipulate women while claiming to be on their side? Don’t do that.
And thanks for bringing further discredit to my sex.
Don't let him fool you, folks. This is the guy who fantasized about turning his students into mermaids
, and about what he would do with them. Is there any significant difference between fantasizing about having a mass orgy with your students and actually hitting on them? Not in my book. Imagine what it must feel like to be a student of his, after you have read his blog post, and then being exposed to his male gaze, while you are supposed to learn something from him. I would be fucking creeped out.
This is also a guy who had a rape accusation on his ass
, but then in effect locked his accuser up and went to his superiors to tell them his version of the story first. This is the good ally PZ Myers who claimed to have witnesses to that incident who could exonerate him, while also stating that he had been alone in his lab with the victim
. This is fishy, to say the least. Why do we keep giving the guy a pass? He's a creep who needs to be avoided by all femme-identifying people. It's. Time. For. Us. To. Dump. Him. srsly.
