Maybe he learned a lesson? I dunno.
Man, fuck this guy and everyone who blames people reacting negatively to their ignorant bullshit on the medium in which they convey it.
Oh, Twitter sucks for conversations. Boo hoo! Sorry, but you're not being taken out of context. Your ignorant and insensitive comments don't need to be fleshed out in a blog post. They wouldn't sound any better in a long-form essay as they do in under 180 characters on Twitter.
So sick and tired of people acting like they are misunderstood when they realize their words on Twitter and other social media platforms have weight. It's no different than saying what you wrote in front of a crowd of tens of thousands.
I don't think Twitter as a medium had anything to do with him announcing his viewpoint that "women should have vaginas." There's nothing to misunderstand there. No hidden nuance that couldn't be conveyed because he ran out of characters. He doesn't think that people without vaginas should be considered women. Simple as that.
