Since today is Halloween, I wanted to take a moment of how the term ”Witch Hunt” has been used lately in the media. For example, the president of the United States of America saying that there’s a Witch Hunt against him. That’s not right to use the murder of women to play victim.
“White dudes need to stop using “witch hunt” and “lynch mob” just because an asshole is facing public consequences. Invoking the methods by which women and POC were murdered to prop up white patriarchal society so you can roleplay victimhood is fucking obnoxious.” – Salome Stangelove
The problem is that many rich and powerful men think of themselves as above the law.
