If you post a clunky and condescending tweet, the chances of you getting roasted on Twitter will reach an all time high. So, when Wikileaks founder Julian Assange posted a "male secret" on his Twitter for the ladies to read, the responses feel on point.
His male secret?! Men don't like other men who loudly identify as "male feminists" because "male feminists" are manipulative and predatory.
"Women, I will let you in on a male secret. Men know that constantly self-proclaiming male 'feminists' are often predatory sleaze bags. They are intensely disliked by other men because of their manipulative qualities and not, in general, because they are viewed to be sex traitors," Assange wrote.
This tweet is an example of why the 140 character limit should be reinstated ASAP.
Also, can we talk about the deep irony in Assange mansplaining predatory "male feminists?!" First of all, Assange has faced allegations of sexual assault, so maybe he shouldn't throw stones from a rapey glass house?! Secondly, mansplaining about why male feminists are fake virtue signalers is the most meta virtue signal of them all.
While Twitter wasn't blown away by Assange's actual "male secret," they did take to the format of sharing male secrets.
It's proving to be a great joke writing format on Twitter. Which makes sense given the fact that men store tons of secrets in their hair.
Some of the secrets were absurd.
While others seemed more feasible.
Other male secrets aside, there were a lot of people rightfully disturbed by an alleged rapist tweeting about fake male feminists.
Then again, maybe the whole spectacle was too on the nose.
His tweet certainly speaks to his own "male secret" of delusion and unearned confidence.
