    Asks her Twitter followers to do her debating for her in relation to a question asked of her on Instagram about the gender pay gap. "I'm too tired to murder him right now, any takers?" IE I don't have the intellectual capacity to debate or back up my statements.

    This is the Instagram post in which she stated "From now until January 31st, women are effectively working for free due to the gender pay gap. "

    Still, she provoked yet another thread on AH, so evidently she's doing something right.

    It’s easier to ignore her than to ignore threads about her on Boards.

    The problem with pea brained individuals like this one is that feminism has become an excuse for failure...men who fail have no such luxury....if I end up single for my life I can't blame anything other than myself....if I fail in business I can't blame anybody but myself...if someone in the same job as me gets paid more than I do I can't blame anyone but myself....

    You'll see that cretins like her have no opinion it seems on women in the rest of the world who still face horrendous oppression every day of their lives....

    Of course...she is also a part of a deeper symptom...the dumbing down of media...

    Tried reading that a few times. Gave up.

    She is part of a deeper symptom alright. Hysterical overreaction to everything feminists tweet. Some of the posters here are far shriller than woman they wet their pants about.

    Twitter is an echo chamber and O'Neill is playing to an ever dwindling crowd.

    Why do you care, OP?

    Is the Instagram post gone? Loading blank.

    It's working fine for me. This is the comment that the guy left that seems to have her triggered.

    Are you saying that ALL working women won't be paid (effectively) for the rest of the year? Talk about a bull**** statement to make������

    Not nearly as triggered as the posters here who react.

    I think if they ever met Louise O'Neill, I'd be slapping them across the face first to get them to tone down the hysteria.

    "AAAAAAAGH AAAAAAAAGH, WOMAN TWEETED SOMETHING ABOUT SOMETHING."

    She's been given a platform by RTE and every Saturday in a national newspaper to air her (mostly) questionable views but I've never seen her in anything resembling a debate. I think she actively avoids situations where she might be challenged to defend her statements and that twitter post is a prime example.

    Calm down, dude. It’s a lovely Sunday morning. Have a cup of tea and listen to Lyric FM or something.

    I wonder how triggered Louise would find herself if I made reference to "murdering" her in twitter

    She'd be hard to listen to, but I'd still give her one..

    Did you ever think it would get to the stage where you were supporting actual nazis?..

    So she avoids debate yet again. Nobody is fooled by that tweet.

    The Examiner is hardly the New York Times. And RTE gave her one show.

    Her views are just recycled memes and opinions from other Third Wave Feminists coupled with some "witty" put downs. No real analysis of either.

    So why worry about it?

    The thing about this pay gap stuff is that if true why would anyone hire a bloke? So either a) men are worth the extra money because they're just better at their jobs, or b) it's all bullsh1t. *hint* it's b

    Rejoice in the awareness of feeling stupid, for that’s how you end up learning new things. If you’re not aware you’re stupid, you probably are.

    Many feminists I have huge regard for. Germaine Greer, Mary Beard, Camille Pagilla. One thing they all have in common is that they will actually engage with people with differing opinions.

    Yes, but LON has a degree in Fashion Management (I think) not Gender or Feminist Studies. She would not have nearly the same level of knowledge of the subject as those above.

    She is using social media as a platform to build a profile to help her as an author. Author/Activist sounds better than just run-of-the-mill Author in generating publicity.

    Well at least no mention of White Knights, Cucks, Manginas or SJWs...

    Maybe we are making progress on AH?
