It all started with Sarah Silverman challenging the manhood of sport hunters:
Hunting is the sport of the diminutive penis
— Sarah Silverman (@SarahKSilverman) September 3, 2019
Geraldo Rivera took Silverman’s swipe at hunters a step further and applied it to people who own AR-15s:
AR15 are the symptom of small penises https://t.co/GGnrxbC0DK
— Geraldo Rivera (@GeraldoRivera) September 4, 2019
Just like some of the reminders for Silverman, Geraldo’s tweet sparked some questions:
So does the same go for women that own AR 15? https://t.co/j28zY6y5Rs

Are you saying that if I own an AR15, I have a small penis? Or is it that you don't think women own AR15 style rifles?

The women who own them are gonna be surprised to hear this.

This is sexist and assuming women don’t own ARs. Shame on you.

Does Rivera think women don’t own AR-15s, or was he just pretending that’s the case to preserve the “joke”? In either case, he was informed that not only males own AR-15s:
I have several AR-15s, Geraldo. Is it because I have a small penis? https://t.co/LdkHSQST0C

And what do you say about those of us who are female AR-15 owners? https://t.co/SnhBjbHB88

I am a woman. And I own one. ?

And that was just a small sampling of the reality checks.
Nothing says "progressive" like body shaming and making fun of people's uncontrollable appearance, am I right??
Having a smaller than average penis doesn't make someone less of a man — over-compensating on Twitter, however… https://t.co/1epxeEv0yb

Refresh my memory. Were there any AR-15s in Al Capone's vault? https://t.co/dIWkmy3cwd
