Woman Gives A Lesson On How To Treat Your Husband While He’s Watching A Game, Gets Destroyed In The Comments

Recently, the Federalist writer Denise McAllister, who became a meme when Meghan McCain tweeted at her: ‘You were at my wedding, Denise,’ thought it was a good idea to teach other women how to fetch their man a beer. But that wasn’t the worst part. She couldn’t handle the harsh criticism she had been receiving over it and went completely ballistic which eventually even got her fired.

The tweet instantly went viral. And not in a good way. People were thinking Denise was enforcing gender stereotypes and were quick to disagree with her. American journalist and author Dana Schwartz was one of them.

Some, however, didn’t think it was that bad and asked others to imagine a situation where the roles were reversed.

But the climax of the story began when HuffPost writer Yashar Ali wasn’t onboard with Denise either. At this point, she decided not to engage in a conversation, but attack the person instead. Denise unleashed her fury, focusing on the fact that Yashar is openly gay.

People overwhelmingly sided with Ali, prompting McCallister to tweet a series of defenses and explanations of her claims.

And it was at this point that got her fired. From at least two gigs. First, she claimed that after The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro told her she was “no longer welcome” to write for that site, she replied that she quit. Then, Ben Domenech, the publisher of conservative website The Federalist, tweeted that McAllister “will not be writing for us at The Federalist any more.”

At first I thought people were grossly overreacting, as my hubby and I joke around like this all the time. Then I read on. Yikes.

Same here, I was rooting for her to be joking. I feel so sorry for women who actually believe in this stuff.

I cannot believe that in the 21st century there are still men that treat their wifes like that. I understand to be passionate about something, like sports. But your wife should be more important than them. And calling her 'woman'? What is she, an object with no name? Its also depressing that some women were taught to feel so inferior that they not only find this behaviour aceptable, but they even defend it...

and then she has the pride (which, if you're going to defend yourself with religion, don't pick and choose your sin, people!) to believe she needs to show other women how to behave in a relationship by posting how wonderful she is on line! "Role as a woman" indeed. Even my great grandmother would've slapped some sense into her.
