BuzzFeed News has an interview with a man whose wedding photo was seized upon by meninists and turned into a racist and sexist meme distributed on Twitter. The photo, which shows 23-year-old Adam Harris, of Austin, TX, tearing up at the sight of his bride on their wedding day, was captioned by the MeninistTweets account, “He’s thinking about all the side hoes he has to give up.” Ugh.
The good news is that Adam Harris responded with dignity and grace, and made those meninists look even more idiotic than they did in the first place. I love a happy ending!
I also love a story that serves as inspiration for our weekly question popping, so here it is, in poll form:
Tell us more though! Did you cry and wipe your nose on your veil? Were you stoic in the face of your second cousin’s rousing rendition of Corinthian’s? Did your makeup run?!? We’ll meet back here on Thursday to compare notes. Don’t forget to bring the tissues.
