The mayor of Austin, Texas received a sexist email from a man complaining about a women-only premier of Wonder Woman, his response is the greatest!
Wonder Woman hits cinema’s world wide today! A movie house in Austin, Texas decided to host a movie premier that was only available for women. One man took great offence and decided to send a sexist email to the Mayor of Austin explaining how this event had enraged him.
We won’t post his whole letter but here are some of the outrageous things he wrote in it…
“The notion of a woman hero is a fine example of women’s eagerness to accept the appearance of achievement without actual achievement.”
“Name something invented by a woman! Achievements by the second rate gender pale in comparison to virtually everything great in human history was accomplished by men, not women.”
He went on about boycotting Austin, Texas unless something was done about the premier and ended off by saying that he didn’t hate woman. He also said,
“Don’t bother to respond because I am sure your cowardice will generate nothing worth reading.”
However Mayor Steve Adler decided that he would respond! And his response will leave you saying ‘Oh Burn!’. This is what he responded…
“I am writing to alert you that your email account has been hacked by an unfortunate and unusually hostile individual. Please remedy your account’s security right away, lest this person’s uninformed and sexist rantings give you a bad name. After all, we men have to look out for each other!”
“Can you imagine if someone thought that you didn’t know women could serve in our combat units now without exclusion? What if someone thought you didn’t know that women invented medical syringes, life rafts, fire escapes, central and solar heating, a war-time communications system for radio-controlling torpedoes that laid the technological foundations for everything from Wi-Fi to GPS, and beer?”
“And I hesitate to imagine how embarrassed you’d be if someone thought you were upset that a private business was realizing a business opportunity by reserving one screening this weekend for women to see a superhero movie.”
“You and I are serious men of substance with little time for the delicate sensitivities displayed by the pitiful creature who maligned your good name and sterling character by writing that abysmal email. I trust the news that your email account has been hacked does not cause you undue alarm and wish you well in securing your account.”
“And in the future, should your travels take you to Austin, please know that everyone is welcome here, even people like those who wrote that email whose views are an embarrassment to modernity, decency, and common sense.”
