Teen boys challenge Clementine Ford, she goes ballistic on Twitter

An unnamed high school invited feminist commentator Clementine Ford to speak to the students. Ford is notable for her negative comments about men. She also tends to get into arguments across social media involving a number of issues.

As such, it came as no surprise that when the teen boys did not accept Ford’s positions she took to Twitter to rage about it:

Keep in mind that these are teenagers. While some of them were probably trying to get a rise out of Ford, given the intensity of her response and her reputation, none of this is shocking. And of course, Ford felt the need to that there is “a group more  arrogant and yet conversely less intelligent than 15 year old boys”.

It continued:

It is not arrogant to ask that a speaker presenting a specific worldview be open to questions and challenges. This is particularly important when the sources one uses are highly selective, subjective, and often conducted with agenda-driven methodology.

Yet more than that, if you want to convince someone, you must listen to their feedback. All the ironic arrogance Ford displays is the reason the boys rejected her positions. Perhaps Ford was able to keep the attitude to a minimum during the talk, but I doubt it. So this leaves a specific scenario: Ford steps into a high school, insults half the student body, and then wonders why they do not like her.

As for her excuse for leaving quickly, it is utter nonsense. She knew when she would speak and how much time was allotted. She should have left enough time for the students to ask questions. Leaving in a rush after rattling off propaganda is intellectually dishonest.

She continued:

In 2016, the top musician earners were Taylor Swift, One Direction, Adele, Madonna, and Rihanna. Despite Ford’s whining, it turns out that the “child” was mostly right. Perhaps instead of resorting to the conceited, know-it-all attitude Ford could have taken three seconds to check the boy’s claim. Of course, this requires intellectual honesty, which is something feminists like Ford lack.

There is more:

No one needs to tell her what she thinks. She uses her Twitter account as if it were her mental diarrhea trash can. And as we can see from her comments about fifteen year old boys, Ford does not appear to like males. Likewise, she appears thin-skinned and insanely reactionary. This makes the person’s question rather poignant: if Ford so dislikes males and being challenged by people, why give public speeches? Why put yourself in that position if you will throw a tantrum?

She did eventually wrap up her Twitter spasm:

Wait, the school responded to their male students “properly” by inviting someone who dislikes teen boys? How would inviting a man-hating bigot change the boys’ negative views of feminists or females in general? If anything, it is an invitation to hate feminists and the girls who support them.

This is precisely why there should have been a rigorous question and answer session. While the boys might not have had sources at the ready, they certainly would have forced Ford to defend her views with a better argument than “I’m right because feminism.”

That said, I wonder what would have happened if Ford had approached the situation by first treating the boys as people. This is something I rarely see feminists do, yet when it happens the feminist tends to get a less hostile response. Sometimes not being a loudmouth jackass works.

  1. Good for them .. these young men have more intellegence and courage than our poly’ticians .. excellent.

  2. Clementine is definitely hindered by projection. All the things she accuses her opponents of, she possesses in quantity. Congratulations to the boys for standing up to her. I do have to wonder at what kind of a school would invite such and extreme man hating bigot to speak to a mixed audience.

  3. A 15 year old boy has a better argument than a feminist. It just says it all doesn’t it?

  4. From what I’m hearing locally it wasn’t just the boys who were questioning Ford’s attitudes.

  5. Wow. What contempt. People like that shouldn’t even be talking to teens. If you hate and look down on your audience that much, then maybe you should, you know, not speak at schools.

  6. It;s weird. From what I can tell, Clemetine ford has made a career out of being a professional aggravation merchant. She doesn’t like being on the receiving end, does she?

  7. Big D–that’s typical of the personality type, in my experience, and that goes for both sexes. Domineering and attention-hungry as hell.

  8. The mark of a mature adult is all in how you conduct yourself in the face of an opinion that challenges your preconceived notions.

    Unfortunately, we’re talking about Clemetine Ford here who is perfectly fine with running to Twitter and berating 15 year olds when challenged by them. Maturity is not her priority as her “Illustrious” reputation proves it..

  9. “Unfortunately, we’re talking about Clementine Ford here who is perfectly fine with running to Twitter and berating 15 year olds when challenged by them. ”

    Fortunately we can now compare her to Trump when she does that.

    Sonja Newcombe, it has been far, for too long! It is so good to see you back!

  10. Misogynist racist pig. Those boys were sexist towards a woman! The police should arrest you for hate speech. I will call the police on you for cyberbullying Clementine Ford.

  11. This hate speech blog needs to be shut down for blaming the women for statutory rape when she was the one who was penetrated by the boy. A 12-year-old boy should not penetrate his female teacher or his mother because if she doesn’t consent, that is a crime of rape. A female teacher or a mother nude does not equal consent. The boy should learn how to control his rapey urges. Nudity is not sexual.
    At this years Slutwalk demonstration, we will be bare on the streets of Toronto, to teach men not to rape. You can bring your minor sons along so that we can teach them that nudity does not equal sexual consent. The age of consent in Canada is 16, but nudity is not sexual consent. We will teach ur sons that our nudity is not sexual.

  12. Slutwalk Toronto: Misogynist racist pig. Those boys were sexist towards a woman! The police should arrest you for hate speech. I will call the police on you for cyberbullying Clementine Ford.

    Fine. Go run to the authorities. Get them involved. I’m sure they’ll be glad to use all their precious time and resources searching for evidence that doesn’t exist save for your word.

    As to your second post, I really can only assume you’re a troll out looking for a reaction. If not, you are another reason why feminism is scorned.. Blaming a hypothetical 12 year old boy for being raped by his teacher. You despicable rape apologist, which is ironic coming from a group decrying it. But my mistake. It”s only reprehensible if it happens to a girl or woman. Boys and Men can get fucked (figuratively and literally).for all you care.

  13. Oh how wonderful.

    Slutwalk Toronto’s drivel passes moderation while my response to it is required to languish in limbo.

    Toysoldier, please do something.

  14. @Slutwalk Toronto

    You are clearly a troll. You are a troll in action, a troll psychologically and very probably a troll physically. If you wish to go nude in public where there are children and elderly folk then you are a perverted whore. Clearly the little boys you so desperately want find you utterly repulsive.

  15. I think Slutwalk Toronto is a poe. As in, a parody. The reason I say that is she’s way too honest to be the real deal.

  16. I wish we are dealing with a feminist troll, but I looked up on the term “Slutwalk Toronto” to find out that it is a feminist movement which started in 2011 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada…It is not a troll movement or parody, but the women from Toronto are demonstrating nudity in public as a response to the local police….What concerns me is that the Slutwalk Toronto troll is inviting our “minor sons” while she is nude at the Slutwalk in Toronto….Then she blames the victims of female rapists by accusing the male victims of raping the women. She is no different from Clementine Ford IMO.

  17. Just because the nick is the same doesn’t mean she’s one and the same. I mean I could register as any number of names (Hey, I could pretend to be Anita Sarkeesian until I get Cease and Desist letter if I wanted) and post inflammatory things just to get a raise out of people. Only seriously psychotic people would actually believe this drivel, what are the odds that someone that psychotic goes on a website about male victims of rape and launches a deranged tirade and actually genuinely expects anyone to take it seriously? What are the odds some troll decided to launch into an inflammatory tirade just to get people angry? While the first possibility is just that, a possibility, the second is much more likely.

  18. @ElisaSky…

    There is nothing in Slutwalk Toronto’s posts that we haven’t seen before. In addition there is no real difference between it and the public behaviour displayed by many protesting feminists in recent years. Poe is very much in evidence.

  19. There is a critical difference: feminist going on psychotic breaks come in packs to reinforce each other because, preferably in their safe spaces. This one came alone, and in an enemy space.

    I rest my case.

  20. @ElisaSky…

    Why the assumption that I was disagreeing with you? You clearly want an argument don’t you?

    I will point out that I have seen variants of Slutwalk Toronto’s behaviour from individuals AND groups for decades and in a wide variety of environments.

  21. ElisaSky are you the Admin of this website?

    Even if that wasn’t Slutwalk Toronto, it’s definitely a militant perverted FemiNazi who wants to lure little underage minors for her sexual deviance at the Slutwalk in Canada..

    In other parts of the world, a child molester, especially one who is arrogant like Slutwalk Toronto ( who uses violence from the State against her opponents), oh wait, I’m not explaining any further because I think Slutwalk Toronto is a rat who planted her pedophile comment to use as evidence for her other feminazi cronies at Jezebel or Buzzfeed or those non-profit FemiNazi corporations in Canada.

  22. How come Slutwalk Toronto can post her pedophile comment to invite minors to be molester by her, but my comment is languishing in the moderation? This is unfair, because Canada protects female child molesters. How come that female teacher only serve less than 24 mos. in prison for sexual molestation of several underage boys?

  23. My apologies for the delay, people. I have been busy with several things and had not checked the blog in some time. I will leave Slutwalk’s comments since people already replied to them. I am sure the person is a troll, however, I do think they deserve a response.

    I will call the police on you for cyberbullying Clementine Ford.

    If that pleases you. Of course, cyberbullying requires direct interaction with the alleged victim, and I doubt Ford thinks males can be victims of sexual violence, let alone would she view a blog dedicated to discussing that issue.

    This hate speech blog needs to be shut down for blaming the women for statutory rape when she was the one who was penetrated by the boy. A 12-year-old boy should not penetrate his female teacher or his mother because if she doesn’t consent, that is a crime of rape.

    And if the boy does not consent? Or did you not consider that? Or are we to assume that an adult woman has any legitimate reason to be nude and in a position with a child in which penetration of any sort could occur?

    The boy should learn how to control his rapey urges.

    I realize you are a troll, yet this is almost verbatim what was told to one of the foster kids who stayed with my family.

    Nudity is not sexual.

    Of course it is not. However, I cannot think of many nonsexual reasons an adult would specifically try to be nude around a child.

    At this years Slutwalk demonstration, we will be bare on the streets of Toronto, to teach men not to rape.

    That is because this is the only way you can get men to look at your naked body, is it not? No decent man with a fraction of brain would come within 400 yards of you. So in order to get around men’s choice you will share your sour milkshakes with hundreds of unwilling men.

    You can bring your minor sons along so that we can teach them that nudity does not equal sexual consent.

    I do not think you should be allowed anywhere near children, particularly when you appear to excuse child rape.

  24. I understand that a US woman who absconded to avoid a lengthy sentence over child sexual abuse has been given haven in Canada. Not a good look in my mind.
