Fun Fact About a Hashtag

October 23, 2022 By Andrea Downey-Lauenburg


With this hashtag I resemble on Twitter pictures of women who don’t wear bras underneath. Funny enough, there seems to be people who get offended by the seemingly unruly tag. “What is with penis women?”, he/she/they asks, and likens it to “fascism” and “racism”, taking social media stupidity to another low.

I won’t mention what I think about the strange word construct “penis women”, and I certainly won’t join any discussion about gender identity. Those who know me a little longer know what my feelings about the subject are; I just leave it like that. But taking offence out of a funny hashtag – wow! How angry are these people; who are these people, and why are they not being treated?
