Oh a trans woman taking credit for something he didn’t actually do and fucking over tons of people in the process? Since when does that happen?
Activist Justine Tunney, a Google engineer, has wrested control of the main @OccupyWallSt Twitter account away from other activists and is taking shots at important figures from the movement, including academic David Graeber, considered by some to be the intellectual father of Occupy. Though Tunney founded the account in 2011, other activists once had access to it. The big question: Who founded Occupy?
“I was the founding organizer of this movement,” Tunney tweeted from @OccupyWallSt on Thursday. “But prejudiced people have always tried to deny me a voice in this movement.”
“We always knew she was trouble, I should’ve taken it away when I had the password,”
Oh gee ya think! This is almost as lulzy as when Laurelai Baily said he started the Arab Spring.
“After taking over the account and apparently blocking access to any other administrators, Justine went on a twitter rampage. Some of her ideas were fairly lucid, some were common sense and interesting, but there was a toxic overtone of ego. For many who find a home in Occupy, the distribution of leadership amongst all of those who choose to show up is one of, if not the, singular defining attribute. So, having anyone, trans woman, cis woman, trans man, cis man, show up and say ‘Hey, I built this and now I am taking it back’ comes as something of a slap in the face.”
