You know those Meninists? That group of men on the Internet who focus on bringing to light the “immense and unbearable turmoil” of being a man in this day and age, of Oh the privilege! and Oh the wage inequality in their favor! and Egad, the double standards and the glass ceilings! — well, that, and making fun of feminism.
Recently, they decided to crack a joke at the expense of a married couple. Needless to say, they picked the wrong people to mess with.
May I present Exhibit A:
The man pictured above is Adam Harris seeing his lovely wife Tisa come down the stairs on their wedding day at Dripping Springs, Texas. The emotional photos went viral or months for their honesty and intimacy. It gave people everywhere the warm fuzzies of love and happiness.
and then the Meninists decided “nope, joke material”.

So Adam wasn’t having any of it. This is his response:
Or I was thinking about my wife, but you know, do you. https://t.co/MS5TBkT0hy — Adam Harris (@AdamHSays) May 23, 2015
That, my friends, is how you stay classy.
Harris shared his memories of his wedding day with Buzzfeed News:
“It was raining all day and windy. We were a bit afraid the ceremony wouldn’t happen outdoors like we wanted it to but around noon the rain let up until the end of the ceremony. We agreed not to do the first look because we thought it would be more exciting to see each other for the first time during the ceremony. When it came time in the ceremony for her to walk down the aisle our DJ played “Beautiful” by Meshell Ndegeocello and the doors above the stairs opened. When I saw her, I couldn’t hold back feelings of excitement and love, she looked gorgeous. Our photographer, Dustin Finklestein, captured the moment perfectly.”
Harris’ tweet went viral — in just three days, it was retweeted over 78,000 times. (The original meninist tweet reached just around 5,000.)
.@AdamHSays your answer to this filth is the epitome of elegance. And your wife looks like a dream. Stay blessed.

It takes a special kind of elegance to be this chill.
@AdamHSays such a badass response to this, correcting without trying to be aggressive back. Serious respect — ☽Enma☽ (@MineralMoon) May 23, 2015
You hear that, meninists? It’s call class. Too bad you can’t buy it in a store.
@AdamHSays Those are lovely photos. Commiserations on the horror of the net, but we can see you’re at the start of a beautiful life together
