Teen Vogue's Lauren Duca Hates White Men

Teen Vogue’s Lauren Duca Hates White Men

Let’s talk about Lauren Duca, shall we? If you’ll recall, she recently got Martin Shkreli banned from Twitter after he trolled her about accompanying him to the inauguration next Friday. Before we get into the meat of this post, Mr. Shkreli had this to say about Duca today in the New York Post…

“To her, I’d say get off your high horse,” Shkreli told The Post. “You’re not a political genius and I’m not sure why you think you have a lot to add to every political conversation … She’s a speak-first, think-later person and that’s what bothers me about her. That’s why I needled her, that’s why I trolled her – because she is what I believe is a scourge. She does it for publicity … but she has no substance and Tucker sort of exposed her I think a little bit in that regard.”

I have something to say to Ms. Duca as well: You’re a damned hypocrite. I’ll show you why in just a second. But first, this is just some of the nonsense she posted in her column over on Teen Vogue on Tuesday. Needless to say, most of the post consisted of her whining about mean ol’ Twitter.

Let’s think a little more critically about the way bullying exerts itself online. Many times, the targets are women who dare to be anything other than quiet and small. Of course, there are women who are trolls, especially of the celebrity variety, but the overwhelming majority of anonymous trolling takes on the defiant woman, who dares to speak her mind on any of the non-approved subjects.

Of course, the ideological and practical have struggled to meet here. Twitter is still trying to wrap its head around basic empathy, despite there being various concrete solutions, and most employers seem to do little more than shrug off the evils of the world. I don’t know that we have to accept that as the way that it is. This isn’t a “men are bad and women are good” argument, though it certainly is gendered. Overall, what if all of us banded together to say, hey, I don’t want to live in a world where people conspire to harass a female writer “until she has a breakdown or goes into porn”? That’s a real thing I saw about myself, by the way.

Twitter can be a very mean place, this is true. That’s also what makes it fun, but that’s a discussion for another day. The thing is, Lauren Duca has no problems contributing to the meanness quotient of The Twittersphere when it suits her. She only seems to take issue with it when people are hurling hate her way.

When the subject is hating on white men, it’s a different story.

This prediction didn’t turn out so well. I mean, riots did happen, but they were the result of unhinged “progressives.”

Well, you kinda look like a white man without all the Snapchat filters, but I digress.

How “progressive” of you, Lauren! Much tolerance!

What a nasty woman.

And violent, too.

Nothing is too low for this piece of work. Shitting on kids is cool, as long as they’re white and male.

Lauren Duca sure is a beacon of online goodwill. There’s nothing I hate more than a fake, and as you can see, this woman is completely fake. The media is trying to prop up this worn-out shyster as some kind of hip truth-teller. What a joke. One more example of how they’re wearing out their welcome, along with their credibility.

    This bitch is the definition of spoiled little brat. She’s not used to being treated like an adult and throws a fit at the first sign of criticism. She’s also incredibly cringe…her TL is full of half assed attempts to be edgy and hip. She could fucking die tomorrow and nothing would be lost.

    • DisneyVillain

      Oh we’d lose something. We’d lose something that caused anger, annoyance, cringe, and disgust if she died.

    • Lost Question

      would love to see her stranded along with her ilk on a deserted island with no straight white men, and none of their tech, just to see how well they do without straight white ben and the benefits thereof, my guess most of them wouldn’t last a week.

    • MONAD

      We’d lose one of the great lolcows of this decade. That’s what.

  • Harry KTel

    Pancho’s cheese dip has shit quality control these days and is not worth buying.

  • tomthumb015

    Let me guess, daddy sends her to University, then she came out with a journo qualification. Now she thinks she can just insult anyone and everyone because she is a “journalist”. Vogue is just a fashion mag for NY hipsters and gold diggers.

  • One-Eye

    So she’s a coalburner?

    Enjoy your unpaid child support, you dummy.

    I like the fact that, like the typical Millennial mindset, Duca believes that “women have the right to speak their minds unchallenged on the internet”. Firstly, no. She doesn’t; no woman, or person for that matter, does. More importantly – having an opinion doesn’t make your opinion right or valid. We live in an age where people are completely lacking in self awareness of their own ignorance. If you are not PROFOUNDLY informed on a subject, you should keep your fucking mouth shut, because you are likely HURTING the development of the dialogue. In other words – Peons, please see your way to the door.

    • Toastrider

      That kind of sums up leftists in general. They think they have the right to speak their minds, but never have to defend their ideas. So when someone comes along and points out ‘Um, that’s not right’, they lose their marbles.

  • Silence Dogood

    I like how she claims the problem is gendered, asserts women are the primary victims when we know for a FACT men get just as much abuse and that the MAJORITY of abuses on twitter that women receive is from OTHER WOMEN. Statistics and Facts are a hell of a drug Ms. Duca.

  • Silence Dogood

    Her remark about straight, white men usually being trash will her her slap in the mouth from me if I ever meet her in real life. I can handle Anon shitposting, but the fact that cunts like her, or dicks if the asshole spouting this nonsense is male, think they can OPENLY speak in such bigoted, wretched ways is too much. Nothing like a good slap in the mouth to remind them of their own saying that “you have freedom of speech, but not freedom from consequences” (and they call US the fascists!).

    • Typical

      I keep saying a good punch in the mouth TM needs to make a comeback.

  • Never heard of her before reading this…

  • MKFenris

    That last one about spider-man. SHUT THE FUCK UP BITCH! There are a handful of Spider-men most of which are his clones, the remainder is his daughter from another timeline, and Miles Morales. God damn this is why I hate these cunt nuggets liking the stuff we built. Comics, Anime, Vidya, you’re welcome to rent some space but we are NOT remodeling the place to suit you, this is the house we built! Sorry had to get that offa my chest. I just get so tired of the whining because they would fight us to the death if we demanded a RomCom had a gunfights straight out of Hard Boiled in them.

  • Mr0303

    That last image with the boy is truly disgusting. Seeing that he’s in the Oval Office I’d assume that he may be part of The Make-A-Wish Foundation or something similar. She truly is a vile individual.

  • BanPC

    The princessfacation of overly privleged and insufferable c u n t s. Your opinions are of less than the dog shiitt I accidentally stepped in. In essence, you are a Sarah Silverman wanna be.

    Kindly piss up a rope, twit!

    • DisneyVillain

      I wish I could upvote you twice just for your username.

  • will_ford

    POS loud mouth “ho”?

  • DisneyVillain

    Calling a small child irrelevant just because he’s a white male is so evil and vile, I can actually hear demons in Hell puking their guts out when they saw that.

  • Kellen Joel

    This bitch is so stupid when she mentioned rioters will go to jail once Hillary wins. In addition to Trump winning, when have rioters gone to jail? Oh that’s right, if a cop touches a hair on their head, they say “I dindunuffin!”.

  • temmy9 .

    I see alot of cats in her future.

  • John Tess

    This stupid bitch just Tweeted that Charles Manson would have been perfect for Trump’s cabinet. What an insensitive, racist imbecile she is. P.S. — she is also ugly as sin.
