Trigger warning: This article may feature some words or themes that may unsettle some readers. 

You know the old saying, ‘Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned’?

Well that phrase is about to become very, very relevant, because a journalist has just said women do NOT belong on the Internet.

We all love the short articles and videos we read and watch on Facebook to 'keep us up to date' on current events.

But 2016 has been the year of a string of very fake articles and news features being compiled to sway the public's views on major global and political issues.

So much so that former President Obama addressed the issue.

Now, shock and disgust is being directed in the way of UK-born controversial journalist Milo Yiannopoulos, of Breibart

In the past, Milo has said things like "feminism is cancer" and has defended hazing. 

Now, he is saying women have no place on the internet. 

The controversy does not stop here and numerous men and women are hitting back at Milo's remarks on social media.

Some of you may like to now think: ‘Oh he was just joking!’

Even if this man thinks he was only ‘joking around’, he is a public figure with the power to sway people’s beliefs.

When we all already live in a world where equality has not been achieved and women are subordinated and have their rights and bodies violated, Milo’s joke that ‘women should only be allowed on the ‘net pending men’s approval for making rape jokes’ is NOT okay.

When words cross a line you can no longer define them as a joke. 

Provoking people with fake news and awful jokes isn't the way to go about politics and everyday life. 

We are sure many people will have vastly different opinions on this matter and we prompt you all to deal with this in a respectful manner.
