A Reddit post that appears to be from a woman who was fired for skipping work on International Women’s Day has gone viral, earning her plenty of ridicule.
“So today has been a bit troubling for me,” begins the post – which has been immortalized in screenshot form on r/The_Donald. “I lost my job.”
“Long story short, I was absent from work yesterday to march downtown for Women’s Day. My boss was pretty pissed but I felt like SHE would understand. But today almost as soon as I began work she confronted me about it.”
“So naturally, I responded saying that if she gave a shit about women’s issues, she’d be more than supportive of my decision. Needless to say she was not and we got in a big argument about how she’s contributing to the problems women face today, and how I’m ‘…unable to act like an adult and take responsibility for my own actions’ (her words… sigh).”
“After it escalated a little and some customers began to voice their opinions on the matter, I was asked to leave and not come back. I’m seriously debating getting a few of my friends to stage a protest in front of the cafe or at least generating an online campaign against them. I’m pretty pissed. THIS PUSSY GRABS BACK.”
The first comment on r/The_Donald’s post about the rant speculates that it must be a troll.
“No, I watched an SJW call my client, his boss, a fucking white male,” reads strikes_again_haha’s reply. “Fired on the spot.”
From there, people quickly began mocking the SJW who was apparently fired.
“Her boss is so brainwashed by the white cis straight patriarchy she doesn’t even know she’s being brainwashed,” commented Epicface227.
“These entitled SJWs are finding out exactly who the privileged ones are,” wrote Easter_Bunny.
“These loud, obnoxious morons get so wrapped up in their SJW narrative that they forget that the majority of people give zero shits about your ’cause,'” commented sillybananana.
Over on Twitter, the ridicule continued.

@PrisonPlanet Translation: No show, come in to work the next day and screech at my female boss about patriarchy, shocked when told to leave.

@PrisonPlanet Jeez! The arrogance of this millennial is unhinged. A few weeks in a third world country may teach her some values + gratitude

@PrisonPlanet Loses job, while intentionally going AWOL to protest, then tries to organise a protest about it ????

@PrisonPlanet She was talking down to her boss and creating an argument in front of customers. Skipping work was her smallest offence.
