A queer woman was sent death and rape threats for shutting down a homophobic troll with 'OK boomer'

A queer woman exposed the exhausting double standard that comes with being a young LGBT+ person after she tried to shut down a homophobic troll with “OK boomer”.

Alyssa, a 21-year-old Toronto resident and the self-styled “high priestess of gay Twitter”, shared a screenshot of an anonymous man calling her an “ugly d*ke” and telling her “you are going to hell”.

When she wrote back: “OK boomer,” the homophobe, whose profile picture was of a church cross, replied: “How can you call me that?”

He went on to abuse a number of her followers, calling them “ugly ass f*ggots” and telling them: “Never use that word [boomer], it’s wrong.” Alyssa said that she was also sent death and rape threats, all for calling the man a boomer.

2. From the article...

***I got a YouWonAPrize announcement when I went to read the article.*** I went through incognito mode using adblock to read it.


Snip--"“I think a lot of boomers are actually really mad at the LGBT+ community, the POC community and the feminist community because they are feeling like they don’t have power anymore,” she explained.

“The ‘common boomers’ who don’t own corporations have fully lost their power, in that the next generation is not listening to them. They can’t manipulate or hate on people anymore without consequences.

“In their day they could simply walk away after saying the N-word or bullying someone for their sexuality. They were the kings of the land. Now it’s like you are taking away their land acre by acre and they are terrified, and in fight or flight become so hateful it’s ugly.”



I think the young woman is on to something here.
