A women’s magazine that tends to approach issues from a more conservative, common-sense stance accidentally embraced some liberal thinking this week.

Whoops!

In an almost-ratioed tweet posted Saturday, Evie Magazine called for normalizing the slapping of men “when they’ve crossed the line,” whatever that means.

Look at the tweet below:

What in the name of liberal feminists was THAT!?

The tweet provoked a spate of angry replies from incensed men.

Look:

The problem, besides Evie Magazine’s promotion of violence, is that there is no shared definition of what it means to cross the line.

When now-deceased former President George H.W. Bush, then 90 years old and wheelchair-bound, told actress Heather Lind a dirty joke and then “touched” her “from behind” in 2014, should she have slapped HIM?

The folks at Evie Magazine eventually issued a couple more tweets to clarify what they meant by crossing the line and also make it clear they aren’t endorsing domesic abuse.

“[C]rossing the line can be when a man tries to pull you in after you say you’re not interested, or disrespects you with some disgustingly sexual and degrading comment,” they wrote.

Look:

They also huffed and puffed about the men who’d responded to their original post by warning that they’d slap right back if they were unjustly slapped by a woman.

Look:

Yet surprisingly, some women rushed to the men’s defense, arguing that using violence to handle an uncomfortable situation would be wrong — and dangerous.

Look:

Now, before you judge Evie Magazine for its controversial views on this issue, do take into consideration its impressive past work.

Last December the magazine promoted guns for women as “an effective equalizer” against male violence and abuse:

Earlier this month the magazine defended Americans who’re wary about taking a coronavirus vaccine:

And last week the magazine slammed rapper Cardi B for her profane, licentious song “WAP”:

These are all conservative positions, so the magazine is certainly not a hotbed of liberal feminist thinking — for the most part.
