Woke feminist misgenders woman to smear all men, gets BUSTED, then says she ‘absolutely’ won’t ‘back down’

Dr. Naomi Wolf is so woke she’s considered caffeine in 23 states. But not woke enough to avoid misgendering someone, apparently.

If you’re not in the woke-know, “misgendering” is when you guess wrong what gender someone is based on things like their having a penis or being pregnent or, in this case, based on their name.

You see, a woman who was part of the team that brought us the first computer rendering of a picture of black hole has been getting woke famous for her contribution, one of many, to the project. Her work was instrumental, but it was part of a big team that also included other women. Nevertheless her name and the photos that went viral showing her excitement over the image have been used for virtue signaling all over. And that’s what Woke Wolf was up to when she tweeted a screenshot to scold men for being so backward and etcetera.

Since she deleted the tweet that she isn’t backing down from, here is a screenshot.



And this is the screenshot that was with the tweet:

But it turned out that wasn’t a guy who called the scientist cute. It was a gal.

Oops, right? Actually, not much. As Ann Althouse posted, the takesies-backsie wasn’t that much backsie.

Althouse writes:

It turns out the “She’s so cute” commenter, with the first name Shaun, actually was a woman, the Wolf premise of Wolf’s expansive generalization was embarrassingly wrong. Wolf subsequently put this up, so you can see she doesn’t accept the push-back about the generalization

Got that right. She doesn’t accept the pushback, AND it doesn’t change or even make her question her view or assumptions. She doesn’t even wonder if her own use of Katie Bouman’s moment to further her agenda and sell her books was itself “derailing” the young woman’s accomplishments.

Nope. She just ain’t backing down. Because men are bad. Especially orange ones. Etcetera.

By laws of silicon valley…isn’t Ms Wolf supposed to be non-personed by now?

Jumps to conclusions – is wrong – refuses to jump back. Typical feminist hag.

And by the way, she doesn’t know her own gender very well if she thinks a man is going to use the term “cute” very often or if most women would be outraged at it being used “at” them. Far too many women use the word “cute” so much the syrup is nauseating. I want to send them a thesaurus or at the least a list of alternative words.

Here’s a few:
adorable
beautiful
charming
delightful
pleasant
pretty

Sorry just a personal vexation. mad

In Russia the say “dark star” because “black hole” is an off-color reference to a certain body part. I’d say that these folks are black holes.

I followed this down the rabbit hole on some site that put up a ton of tweets regarding that picture.

A whole bunch of folks were incensed that this one woman was singled out as the one who created the image, but the reality was that only a small bit of code was hers. It was a big group effort, yadda, yadda, yadda.

Someone pointed out a young guy who apparently did 70-some percent of the code, but he was gracious about the whole deal.

But this being 2019, he had to then point out several things that concerned him more than this flap over the photo. One of which of course was, “Being a gay astronomer.” 2019, ladies & gentlemen.

All of this over what is technically still an artist’s rendering, just with more hand waving about degree of accuracy.

I say get it on film or push off.

This is the sad state the western world is in. That’s what I find to be embarrassing. We’re at a point where such tiny mistakes are such a huge deal. Is it in G.B. that you can be reported to the police for misgendering someone? And it’s focused on misgendering someone from what sex they “feel” like they are. It’s laughable and appalling at the same time. “Oooh, I feel like a woman” — Shaniah Twain.

When Naomi Wolf actually condemns the cretins that jumped all over the scientist guy just for wearing a shirt with anime girls on it that his girlfriend bought for him, then I’ll give a rat’s patootie what she says here.

a young woman’s huge accomplishments are often derailed by trivializing attention to her personal attributes.

Don’t do science unless you’re ugly as sin. Got it.

She’s covering her mouth in a sort of girlish innocent way. It’s absolutely adorable —especially in the context of what she helped accomplish. It a dose of humanity. Incredible that someone would be so callous as to criticize and bring negativity to such a heart warming and inspirational photo.

I jammed a spike in both of my eyes so that I never judge anyone based on how they look.

I do find it frustrating that I keep bumping into things though. Also, driving has become much more difficult. But you know what they say – if at first you don’t succeed, try try again.

Even people with First World Problems are thinking “This is ridiculous!”

Btw, the next time someone misgenders me, and calls me “sir” or some other male name, gets a viral punch in the mouth from my little chihuahua!

It’s not little. It’s differently sized. Stop judging it.

To be fair, I’ve met women that were jealous of my hair (partway down my back), so it’s easy for people who only see me from behind to think I’m female.

For what’s it’s worth, I don’t believe they have a photo of a “black hole”. Those “astronomers/astro-physicists” need to re-think themselves.

This exhausts me. It’s like LARPing imo (Live Action Role-Playing) – where she’s trying to pretend to be something that she’s not (in her own fantasy world) and in this case, be smarter and more “WOKE” (read: stupid) than everyone else in the room. This is too asinine to even try to play along or be nice. Dr. Naomi Wolf, graduate of dumbassery.

Apparently the concept of science does not apply in the realm of wokeness.
