Roxane Gay and followers are TRIGGERED by men wearing shorts!

I have no idea what their problem is. Men wear shorts all the time in my country.

Roxane, shorts are something men wear when it's warm and usually they are skinny or fit. That's probably why you don't get it.

I'm EXHAUSTED by seeing them! I am so tired can barely bring myself to waddle over to the freezer to shove another gallon of ice cream down my throat!

Yeah, this is a really weird one, what is she insinuating is behind us wearing shorts?

I wear 'em when it's too hot to wear trousers (which is a lot in my country), and I'll admit, I work fucking hard at the gym on my legs, and if I feel good out and about in my shorts showing off my thighs and bum, that's my business.

R12, that is exactly right. Very transparent as to why she's pinned that tweet.

I don't get why she's held in such high esteem with her writing, all her arguments are like that, written so she can have it her own way. I read her article on Charlie Hebdo from a few years back. Talk about a whole lot of wasted space saying nothing. Or at least, you could tell she dearly wanted to criticise Charlie Hebdo but spent the whole time going back and forth about how she was all "Je ne suis pas Charlie" but of course people shouldn't be killed, but of course people can be offended, but of course there's nuance etc. It ended up being an article completely about nothing.

I wear shorts all year long. I don’t know exactly why. I guess I just don’t see the point in changing to warmer clothes when I’m only walking from my house to the fucking car. I bring a light jacket, though!

Also, if there’s snow on the ground, the bottom of your pants might get wet and gross. No risk of that with shorts unless you slip and fall on your ass.

It’s certainly not to prove I’m macho. How the fuck would I fool anybody with my “Macho shorts” when I’m wearing a Golden Girls shirt along with it?

I think I'd like to be your friend R35 :)

I was born on an island which is pretty cold for about 7-8 months of the year. Many men there wear shorts all year round. I didn't, but I did wear a t-shirt all year round. When you grow up in an environment like that your body is more used to it, plus as R35 says, often you're only outside briefly anyway.

Ahh yes, I remember the Channing Tatum thing too, though wasn't sure if that was serious or more like Rosie O'Donnell's Tom Cruise thingy.

There's definitely got to be something like jealousy or other deep-seated issues that cause her to have problems with men wearing shorts. Frankly, half the stuff that exhausts her is kinda petty. Like her acting like well-intentioned people who want to help her out are somehow attacking her. "I don't need advice!" over and over again.

From the context it seems it's about people wearing season-inappropriate clothing R4, but "people who wear shorts in the fall and winter" is a dried-up old topic so I don't know why she brought it up. It's like complaining about airline food.

And here it's been over 90 degrees during the day for most of the week. I dunno, she just complains about stupid basic shit all the time, I don't get what the deal is. She looks and acts like a cranky 50-something Midwestern mom but no one wants to admit it.

This is a uniquely Twitter thing like how you can tell someone is gay if they're drinking iced coffee in the middle of winter or everyone in California going online as soon as there's an earthquake to tweet that there was an earthquake.

You have to be on there quite a bit to get it and it's a recurring theme that appears occasionally.

She's most likely saying, and her followers get it because again this is a Twitter thing, she thinks it's too cold (wherever she is) to wear shorts.

R61 that's exactly what I've noticed too. She's so damn rude to people who look up to her. Maybe it's a lesson that they shouldn't revere others, but it's also just so unpleasant to see someone try and shame the people who like her over and over. And then there are her regular attempts at trying to ruin the careers of other people (nearly always white women) and then her pretense afterwards that she had nothing to do with that.

R67, I really wanted to like her when I first heard of her. Once I saw how not only she behaved, but how terrible her writing was, I couldn't believe how popular she is.

Roxane & Friends are always arguing against bigotry but it suddenly strikes me that they don't really seem to be that concerned with creating a fair and equitable society, rather they seem to want to invert society, to put themselves in the position where they can bully others like they have been bullied throughout life. That seems to be a plan that might bring them short-term satisfaction but isn't really going to help anyone in the long run.

I mean, one of the women commented underneath:

[quote]Whatever it is that makes them wear shorts and flip flops (gross) once it gets chilly. A misfiring of a neurotransmitter? It's infuriating and I hate it. I guess I don't have to look at it this year since I don't go anywhere. A benefit of lockdown. Less anger.

I live in the northeast and wear shorts all year round when I can unless its really cold. As a poster upthread explained, its so much more comfortable and free feeling, especially for driving, and you are only exposed to the cold briefly when going from your house to the car, car to a store, etc. Its worth a few seconds of cold to feel more comfortable overall, to me at least.

I couldn't care less if it impresses or repels anyone, its 100% about what feels comfortable for me. Its ironic that anyone would twist this choice into trying to prove something to others as opposed to realizing that most doing it actually give way less fucks about that than those who don't. Only a bizarre person with serious issues would view it that way.

black women are cold all the time, which is why in a 75 degree office you’ll see them with space heaters, putting on shawls, wearing their coats and scarves, and reducing their productivity by about 80% as they put their heads down and pretend to be shivering. It’s a micro aggression to say “it’s freaking HOT in here” in front of them. So OF COURSE this fat black cow is going to go public decrying men in shorts. And of course, she really means WHITE men.

^Sounds more like she couldn't hack Yale, if anything. But I shouldn't assume.

by Anonymousreply 12510/11/2020

well, yeah R125. That goes without saying. She got her undergrad and post grad degrees at some no name technical university.

by Anonymousreply 12610/11/2020

Exactly R126. I also seem to remember another poster on here saying once that they knew people who had worked alongside her and she's kind of considered a joke by other academics. Something about her having not very good credentials and them feeling like she got by more on checking those boxes as mentioned above.

She is considered a joke by academics, but it would be career suicide to publicly lambast her in the current woke climate.

by Anonymousreply 12810/11/2020

That's unfortunate. I mean, I wouldn't want people attacking her based on things like appearance or stuff like that, but criticising the things she says is something that should happen.

Roxane had a privileged childhood. Her parents are wealthy sent her to Phillips Exeter but she tries to downplay that she grew up with money.

by Anonymousreply 13010/11/2020

I wonder why? She already had a horrific thing happen to her as a teenager, I wouldn't think you'd want to be any more of a victim than that.

by Anonymousreply 13110/12/2020

why she got that dark patch on her face though?

by Anonymousreply 13210/12/2020

Diabetes related, perhaps?

Haha, oh dear, someone responded to her pinned tweet (see R12) with:

[quote]TRUTH is TRUTH. Something is either true, or it is false. There is no such thing as “your truth” or “my truth”!

Which caused Roxane to explode:

[quote]Oh shut the fuck up

All those men in shorts have made her even more short-tempered of late than usual.

It's Roxane's birthday today! Gal pal Randa Jarrar has celebrated by posting a photo of Roxane standing next to a pyramid.

Would Roxane like a nice big pair of shorts for her birthday, perhaps?

That’s a good reminder that only black folx should be allowed to stand next to the pyramids. They belong to THEM.

and Cleopatra was black!

^Timely, what with the whole Cleopatra brouhaha this week, into which the above Ms Jarrar involved herself and subsequently got seriously called out on.

Slave labor built the pyramids (unless it was aliens). Aren’t they “problematic?”

by Anonymousreply 138Last Friday at 5:23 AM

no, because it was blacks enslaving blacks.

also, it wasn’t all slave labor, I believe they’ve found evidence that the workers were paid in money, grain, beer, and had housing.

A pyramid is the only thing to come close to matching Roxane's "majestic beauty"? God, some of these so-called writers love their purple prose.

by Anonymousreply 140Last Friday at 1:16 PM

Perhaps the writer measures majestic beauty in gross tonnage?

I feel like a cunt saying it, but my thoughts on why she is always being photographed next to elephants and pyramids are less than charitable.

Spare a thought for us, too.
