This collage is a critique of Vice co-founder and famed male misogynist Gavin McInnes. Among other things, this piece is a response to McInnes’s recent anti-feminist, pro-life, misogynist, abortion shaming, and patriarchal comments made here. I use screenshots of pro-abortion tweets made by @alt_clit, a new, mysterious twitter account described by "i am alt lit" as a unique and witty anti-patriarchal voice in the alt lit twitter scene. Alt Clit explores such fourth-wave feminist motifs as the re-appropriation of the term “slut,” sex positivism, and, as it relates to this piece, abortion. I find Alt Clit to be an intelligent and poetic critique of the pervasiveness of misogyny and patriarchy within networked environments.
