Some "Feminists" are now willing to sacrifice innocent men in the name of undoing the male "patriarchy," and we should all be worried.

Emily Lindin stirs controversy after claiming innocent men may need to "take a hit" in order to influence change.

     An outspoken feminist writer for the magazine Teen Vogue  has some dangerous beliefs. Emily Lindin has been put on the social media "hit list" after a controversial tweet regarding sexual assaults. 

     Really Emily? How can you claim to promote "gender equality" while being so hypocritical when it comes to your expectations of the two (or however many genders you believe exist)? 

"If some innocent men's reputations have to take a hit in the process of undoing the patriarchy, that is a price I am willing to pay" -Emily Lindin

     First of all, the fact that you refer to innocent men having their lives ruined as a price "YOU" will have to pay tells me you're either a poor writer or some sort of moral check writer for the entire male gender. I highly doubt the latter to be the case but I guess that hasn't been confirmed. Gender equality is a very simple term meaning equal ease of access to resources and opportunities regardless of gender, but this small piece of important vernacular has certainly been redefined. Would Emily Lindin stand for an innocent women losing her career or reputation for the sake of an androcentric issue?

     The "blackstone ratio" in criminal law states "it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer". It is shameful to even imply that the sacrificing of an innocent person for any benefit should be necessary. If we truly wish to have gender equality then women should prepare to make similar sacrifices if it's expected that men will have to. The moral of this story is that equality, by definition, does not allow you to pick and choose what rights and benefits you'd like to have at the expense of the other. We live in a dangerous time where pandering and fear of opposition rules over common sense.

     We should be constantly celebrating the bravery of the women who are facing their attackers, and chastising the many men who slung their power around like overprivileged wildebeests. Does that mean that innocent men should now sit in fear, preparing to possibly be the undeserving sacrificial lamb in the name of someone else's justice? My gut tells me no. The problem is we are allowing people like Emily Lindin to hold a platform that assists her nonsensical spewing that should be shouted from atop a spackle bucket on a street corner. This "spewing" is even celebrated in many cases! While we commemorate the victims of evil men, and help topple the lives of these sexual criminals, lets not let good people become needless casualties. We need as many of them in this world as possible.
