Recently, many new people have joined the Good Enquirer. A large group of these people call themselves “shitposters”. I took it upon myself to interview one of these shitposters.
Below are my questions and their answers. In this article, I will be responding to their answers whilst also proving them wrong.
Before we start, I asked them to do a short introduction.
I am a male living in Melbourne, Australia. I like ducks and shitposting online.
As you can see, the persyn is from Australia, which means they are highly privileged, as well as the fact that they are male.
This means their arguments come from a place of privilege, so make sure to be aware of that when reading through the article.
My first question for them was: “How did you find Good Enquirer?”
i found good enquirer through feminists against trolls, in the associated servers discord channel.
This shows that these shitposters like to attack us all and not just one.
If you haven’t seen it already, I did an article on defending Unbiased Katie, the owner of Feminists Against Trolls. Found here: https://goodenquirer.com/2020/07/in-defence-of-unbiased-katie/
My second question was: “Are you a feminist? Why/Why not?”
I am somewhat a feminist, i believe in equal rights between both genders
This statement is highly transphobic, and just shows that they aren’t actually a feminist. Feminists believe in equal rights for ALL genders. Not just the “2” that the alt-right believes exist.
I am shocked that people still believe that there are only 2 genders in 2020,as its basic human decency to understand that some people don’t fit into Male or Female.
Even a 5 year old could understand this concept better than an alt-right troll like this shit poster.
My third question was: “Do you support BLM? Why/why not?”
i do support blm, all races are equal and none should be persecuted especially in first world countries.
Unfortunately, not all races are treated equally. This is especially apparent in the United States. Systematic and Institutional Racism are still serious issues, which is exactly why BLM has to exist. Furthermore, police continue to attack and murder unarmed POC on a daily basis.
My penultimate question for the shitposter was: “Do you support JLGBTQIA+ rights? Why/why not?”
i do support jlgbtqia+ rights, bc all humans are equal despite who they are sexually attracted to
There is 2 massive problems with this statement, one of which is that earlier they said they only believe in 2 genders, which excludes a huge part of the transgender and non binary community. So clearly, they do not support JLGBTQIA+ rights.
The second major problem is, not every aspect of JLGBTQIA+ is sexuality based. For example, the T for Transgender, I for Intersex, B for Blogger and J for Journalist. Clearly, this person is highly uneducated and their bigotry must be stopped.
My final question for them was:
“Are you a vegan? Why/why not?”
i am not a vegan, my religion (islam) disallows veganism
I’m honestly unsure whether this person is a muslim or not. This is as I, myself, am a vegan and a muslim. As well as this, Islam is strongly pro-JLGBTQIA+, pro-feminism etc.
This person clearly is NOT and is most likely just another toxic, white male.
If you’d like to speak to me or the person interviewed, you can find us both on the Good Enquirer discord: https://discord.gg/Sje5tG2
