What you will witness in the following tweets is the same group of:
- Hillary voting
- Patriarchy crushing
- Homophobia hating
- 'Goddess' worshipping (well, one of them)
- Pussy Riot loving
... feminist social justice warriors morph into:
- Muslim electing
- Hijab curious
- Ramadan celebrating
- FEMEN despising
... cheerleaders for Islam.
One would have to try hard to be more contradictory.
Speaking on the subject of PATRIARCHY, the following people have this to say:
@blk_bk If you aren't invested in ending patriarchy/male violence against women, then I could care less what you think about me.

Thanks for all your thoughts and sorry for the silence, I'm on an equality course funnily enough. Smash patriarchy and all that.

For a woman to sometimes do non- or anti-feminist things doesn't make her a bad feminist. It makes her someone trying to survive patriarchy.

The patriarchy and sexism may affect women more, but it affects men too. Denying its affect on men is irrational

Hillary truly has had to work twice as hard to be considered half as good as the boys. Why not talk about how patriarchy impacts our health?

Before patriarchy, 13 was considered a lucky number because it represents the Goddess. I'm thinking this is the year we reclaim it, ladies!

I'm not a supporter of drone strikes but if aimed at golf courses instead of Muslim cities we would probably kill less innocents.
