Should you ever wish to call someone out for inappropriate behaviour, there’s a simple rule you should keep in mind when doing so.
Do not engage in the behaviour you’re calling the other person out for.
For example, if you want to call someone out on things they’ve said or written about women you should refrain from referring to women as somehow inferior to men. As strange as it may sound, once you call someone else a misogynist, it’s considered hypocrisy (at the very least) to precede to engage in misogyny yourself.
Take, for example, Mike S. Adams who called out Perez Hilton’s continuous use of misogynistic words in a faux-apology I found post at One News Now.
About three-fourths of the way through the column and well after he called Perez a misogynist, the following sentence can be found:
I am sorry that gay men are self-loathing enough to allow other men to treat them as women.
Now exactly how does a man treat another man like a woman? Give up? It’s quite simple. A man treats another man like a woman when he screws him and being screwed is one of the most awful things that can happen to a person who isn’t a woman. You have to positively hate yourself to want to be treated like a woman.
So, now you know how to fail out calling someone out. Any questions?
