Teen Vogue columnist and outspoken feminist Emily Lindin came under fire on social media Tuesday after tweeting that she was “not at all concerned about innocent men losing their jobs” over false allegations of sexual assault or harassment.
Lindin explained the reasoning for her admitted “unpopular opinion” in a multi-part thread, first claiming that “false allegations VERY rarely happen, so even bringing it up borders on a derailment tactic. It’s a microscopic risk in comparison to the issue at hand (worldwide, systemic oppression of half the population).”
Despite immediate backlash, Lindin pressed on.
When Lindin attempted to respond, Tapper cut her off.
“You said ‘if some innocent men’s reputations have to take a hit in the process of undoing the patriarchy, that is a price I am absolutely willing to pay.’ That’s immoral,” Tapper wrote. “And it’s not a price *you* would be paying, btw. It would be innocent men doing that.”
The backlash apparently drove Lindin to make her Twitter feed private, leading to renewed social media criticism.
Teen Vogue’s parent company, Conde Nast, did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Lindin’s byline last appeared on Teen Vogue’s website in July of this year. Past articles by her have born the headlines “What You Need to Know Before Sending a Nude Photo” and “6 Ways You May Be Slut-Shaming Without Realizing It.”
Lindin is also the founder of The UnSlut Project, a group that claims to promote “gender equality, sex positivity, and comprehensive, age-appropriate sex education for all ages” on its website. An email request for comment was not immediately returned.
