We always try to teach children that honesty is the best policy, that we should treat others how we want to be treated, and if you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all. But for some reason, when we become adults those ideals are politicized. It’s cooler to shit talk your friends for fun because you “love them” and it’s not only socially acceptable, but encouraged, to tear people down over social media. If we don’t participate in this lifestyle, we’re hippies, pussies, or too PC.
Caitie is no stranger to online scorn. With her straight forward beliefs and her activism for marginalized groups, she’s privy to the backlash of angry internet dwellers who got turned down one too many times by women who weren’t interested in someone telling them when to smile. Alas, Twitter doom has descended upon Caitie one too many times, so we thought it was a good idea to let you get to know the person you’re sending tweets such as the classics, “Tell her to go make you a sandwich,” and, “Real men do not apologize.”
