As I was lining up topic ideas earlier this week, I came across an article about a female British politician who was being criticized for the way she was dressed while addressing the House of Commons.
My interest was piqued, but I put it off to the side for the time being, not sure if I wanted to “go there.” My views on these matters are usually contrarian to the feminist “outrage” mob who take offense over criticisms of the way women dress. When I vocally disagree with them on issues like these, it usually leads to more than the usual bunch of headaches in my Twitter mentions.
Not that I’m a stranger to going against the grain, and the hassles that often come with it. It’s just that certain topics you write about bring the worst of the worst trolls out of the woodwork on social media, and I wasn’t sure I wanted to have to put up with it.
