Template for my reaction to discussion threads on sexism

Look, a thread about an article addressing sexism in ______. Let's read the whole thing through.

I see that participants in ______ took their time to read the article, avoided making pointless ad hominem attacks against the real or imagined authors of it, and carefully considered whether the criticisms made reflected the presence of a real bias in ______ which should be addressed and rectified, or whether perhaps they were well-intentioned but mistaken interpretations of _______ which deserve a thoughtful rebuttal rather than effectively saying "You're complaining about sexism in ______? Well, I'll give you some sexism to complain about!"

Oh wait...that's not what happened?

What a surprise.
