Alt-Right Mormon Mommy Blogger Destroyed on Twitter After Sexist Comments

Alt-Right Mormon Mommy Blogger Destroyed on Twitter After Sexist Comments
July 15, 2017 by David G. McAfee

Mormon activist who frequently promotes “white culture” recently posted a sexist tweet encouraging women to give up becoming scientists and stay at home to raise children instead. The response was… less than positive.

Wife With A Purpose, a blogger and Youtuber who refers to herself as a “former SJW now a follower of Christ,” said smart women can choose to be scientists or make six more scientists. “Which serves society better?” she asked.

Does the world really need more people? Really?

First of all, I think anyone who understands the problems overpopulation poses would agree becoming a scientist is more helpful to society than having six kids (you have no idea if they would become scientists or not – and if they happen to be girls they shouldn’t, according to this worldview).

Secondly, why does this Christian blogger think women are incapable of multi-tasking? Isn’t it possible a woman could be a smart scientists and… *gasp* have babies?

There were a lot of responses to the sexist thread, including this one:





But my favorite reply was this tweet thread:




...

Now, it should be noted that the image from the blogger’s original tweet has been removed due to copyright violations. She later complained that this was a form of censorship.

In any case, Wife With A Purpose ultimately reposted the tweet with an image that isn’t being used without permission. This time she changed the number of children to eight, because having six kids isn’t crazy enough.




...

Overall, I’m not surprised she wrote this sexist tweet. I wasn’t aware of her existence before today, but a quick glance at her profile tells me everything I need to know about her unhealthy message.

She isn’t just sexist, though. She also champions “White Pride” and takes every chance she can to demean other races.




...

This woman has a lot of crazy views and more than 30,000 followers on Twitter, so my only hope is that she doesn’t influence too many of them in a negative way. Given the responses she got to this post, however, my guess is many of these people aren’t “fans” in the traditional sense of the word.

I love it when bigots get owned on social media. Christian mommies who are white supremacists don't deserve to be treated any differently than skinheads, even when they play the victim.

1. She's retweeting richard spencer

Im not sure how much utility there is in arguing with a straight-up Nazi, which is what this "traditional mommy blogger" seems to actually be.

3. People don't argue with them so much as troll their social media accounts.

That can serve two purposes:

1) logical rebuttal of a fundamentalist viewpoint might serve as a wake up call for skeptical followers of said fundy

2) it's just fun to virtually punch Nazis

Mormon Mombies are not immune to divorce and she's going to be fun to follow in about 10 years.
