VidCon Debrief

I also love the phrase “openly known”. As in, “ It is openly known that women on the internet are subject to far greater amounts (and intensity) of harassment and abuse than men”.

I’ve been a fan of Hank’s science channel and I’ve never known him to use that term. “Openly known”. It’s so awkward and unlike how you normally talk about facts, it seriously stinks of disingenuousness. You clearly know it’s bullshit, otherwise you wouldn’t be using these sorts of euphemisms.

Do you and Hank need help? This statement literally reads like it was extracted from you and your brother at gunpoint… If the answer is yes, and you need us to rescue you, shine a green light in your window tonight and we’ll contact law enforcement...

Like what you read? Give Conor Corrigan a round of applause.
