The media chooses some of the most interesting people to give a verbal platform, doesn’t it?
But that’s none of my business.
Doc Thompson, conservative radio host of The Morning Blaze, posed a topic on Twitter Sunday (May 3), which has set off a social media feud, according to Mashable.

The official account retweeted a plethora of anti-feminist tweets using #HowToSpotAFeminist, which urged people on the other side of the fence to fight back.
Author Kelly Oxford fired off this gem:
= Dear people using #HowToSpotAFeminist hashtag. = FEMINIST: a person who believes in political, economic & social equality of the sexes.

Others made perfect use of the hashtag to point out that ignorance isn’t bliss, it’s just sad.
Misandrist & Feminist are not synonymous. If you're uneducated about it, Google is a great friend. Free. Open 24/7. #HowToSpotAFeminist.

Although the way it began is questionable, at least there’s a conversation going on about feminism…and the myriad ways the movement’s goals can be misconstrued.
Thoughts, Hot Zoners? Are you offended by the hashtag?
