Because I think we need a thread for this.

Consumption is not a politically combative act — refraining from consumption even less so.

Actually the tag should be #EachEveryWoman now.

Because the woman who started the #YesAllWomen tag has been receiving death threats from the men who are trying to prove that not all men are like that, so she asked people to stop using it.
Mockery of ideas you don't comprehend or understand is the surest mark of unintelligence.

Even the worst union is better than the best Walmart.

What is #YesAllWomen anyway? I think I've only heard of it from a few posts on this site.

It's a tag and the Idea behind it is suppose to be
Not all men are harrasers, but yes all women will get harassed.

I can't tell, is this tag suppose to mock #YESALLWOMEN, function as an affectionate parody, or serve as some kind of analogy.

I've been around long enough to know
The value of 24 hours
And free will is the closest thing
We will ever see to superpowers

Oh! That explains everything! Neo-Nazi special snowflake! So they're EXTRA stupid!

I think it should be noted that 40% of domestic violence victims are male.  It's an issue, certainly, just not a female-only issue.

That's true, but I think at the moment the focus is more on women specific issues, it's sort of like how after a gay kid kills himself we tend to focus on suicide among gay teens.

I can sympathize with men that get defensive when a blanket description like "could be a rapist" is applied to them. Perhaps a not-so-hypothetical analogy would help illustrate the point:

"Not all mentally ill people are violent, but yes all neurotypicals must assume otherwise for our safety."

It's not a productive way to include them in the conversation.

Of course, most of us still remember Social Justice Wario, once upon a time something several of us considered funny until we realized that the term "Social Justice Warrior" was intended to demonize rational minded people, not just mock some thin-skinned people who go apeshit over pictures of meat.

Of course, the origin of this parody hashtag stems from 4Chan, and a majority of that site's populace are openly misogynistic, sexually frustrated loonies. So...

A good rule of thumb, hashtag spam masquerading as actual political activism is about as meaningful and generally worthy of your time as the average fart.

Is it really true that 40% of domestic violence victims are men?
