SAN FRANCISCO, CA—According to sources close to local egalitarian-feminist Jane Stein, the activist for women’s rights had penned a scathing rebuttal of complementarianism Friday morning, but failed to send it to The Huffington Post after she found herself unable to click the website’s “Submit” button.
“I just started breaking out in a cold sweat when I saw the S-word emblazoned there on my screen, micro-aggressing me,” Stein wrote on her Tumblr account after the incident, sandwiched in between a repost of a popular feminist webcomic and a long rant about a man who had complimented her eyebrows that morning.
“Ugh. Patriarchy is everywhere,” her Tumblr post went on. “It shouldn’t be radical ideology for me to ask that the entire world be a safe space from triggering words like ‘S—-t.'”
At publishing time, The Huffington Post had apologized for the “offensive wording” on its “Submit an Article” page, and fixed the issue by cleansing its entire website of the triggering language.
