It looks like Twitchy narrow escaped a public shaming by TIME magazine. Readers might remember a piece from just a day ago, written by one of our female editors, “complaining” about all of the “toxic masculinity” on display as photo journalists kept filing pictures of big, strong men carrying women and children and the elderly through flood waters.
We called it “GLORIOUS,” but we apparently flew under TIME’s radar, which managed to pick off a tweet by Matt Walsh about one of the same photos.
Woman cradles and protects child. Man carries and protects both. This is how it ought to be, despite what your gender studies professor says pic.twitter.com/oX85v67FaY

Oh, that sexist Hurricane Harvey tweet. How could they not write an article? It’s bad enough that the photographer didn’t think to re-stage the photo so that the woman was carrying the man as he held the baby while strapped into a 20 lb. empathy belly. Photos like this one only serve to reinforce the very worst assumptions about gender.
TIME (actually, Fortune) did compile 12 tweets from “an actual gender studies prof” who couldn’t help but respond, but you’ll have to click over there to read it. Instead, here’s how the Internet responded to TIME’s article about that sexist Hurricane Harvey tweet.
Hey, @time, people are still drowning today. Think you could hold off on all your brain-dead & tone-deaf SJW hot takes for just a bit?

What's totally shit about this is that a photo showing human kindness in the most extreme circumstance is labelled with this fucking crap!

And now I'm blocking Time because this is ridiculous & stupid & I've no more time for it. Men are amazing. Women are amazing. The end. https://t.co/7JAwOkBuTB
