Out for an Early Morning Troll….

A horror anthology I added to my library: Betty Bites Back: Stories to Scare the Patriarchy. The subtitle made it irresistible.

8:30 in the morning is entirely too early to encounter any troll, let alone perhaps the most disgusting troll I’ve ever encountered. 8:30 am is too early in the morning to chant, “Kill all misogynists! Kill all misogynists!”

Wasn’t Twitter supposed to feel safer once Russia was blocked from it, because supposedly the majority of trolls are Russian bots?

When I tried to Report Mr. Overcompensating Tiny Peen, as I’ve noticed before, the list of reasons for reporting accounts on Twit was a fairly long list… but doesn’t include the basics:

This account is a troll.

This account is a bot.

So, like previously, I didn’t know which on this inadequate list to choose. I selected one — maybe something about hate speech. Because, yes, relentlessly trolling an account because its name includes the word “Lesbian” is hate speech. Accusing lesbians of being “man haters” and “penis haters” and showing a cartoon penis is hate speech. Repeatedly hurling such bizarre insults in all caps, one comment after another, for at least eight comments (which were still appearing even as I clicked on the account to Report and Block it) is hate speech and abuse. It’s also signs that the turd doing it is devoid of any redeeming quality, but I digress.

The next step was Twit showing a list of posts Mr. Overcompensating Tiny Peen posted on his page. It was shorter than the at least eight abusive comments Mr. Overcompensating Tiny Peen made in response to the account MOTP was attacking… only because it’s a queer feminist organization with that Dreaded Word in its account name.

Frustrated with Twit, I backed out, replied to one of MOTP’s many disgusting all-caps comments, “Psychopath, projecting your hate onto your scapegoats fails to magically transfer it.”

In hindsight, I wish I wrote instead: “Translation: Mr. Overcompensating Tiny Peen hates woman who aren’t sexually available to men, let alone misogynists like his worthless ass.”

But… since Mr. Overcompensating Tiny Peen only has eleven followers, his worthless ass probably isn’t a real worthless ass. It’s a fake worthless ass. In other words, it’s a bot. But… a Mr. Overcompensating Tiny Peen misogynist created this bot and no doubt many others.
