The Not "Not All Men" Sophistry: TerribleMinds Edition

Egad, here's some total crap from one Chuck Wendig at the apparently aptly-titled "TerribleMinds."

Boy, these people are really, really, really committed to the proposition that it's not ok to challenge false generalizations. About men, anyway.

tl;dr: you must always challenge any sexist male, but you are never permitted to point out that not all males are sexist.

Well...you're half right, Chuck...

One of the more annoying aspects of this fad is: in a year, all these same people will deny that anyone, anywhere ever claimed that it was impermissible to challenge false generalizations about men. We'll seamlessly transition from:

(1) NEVER SAY 'NOT ALL MEN' NO MATTER WHAT!!!!!!!!!!111

to

(2) Nobody ever said that you can't say 'not all men'...you're attacking a straw feminist!!!!!!111

As soon as this stupid fad fails to catch on with normal people, all the crazies will deny that they ever said it.

And so, as you know, it goes
