Feminist writer Jody Allard found herself at the center of some much-deserved public scrutiny after writing a post for her blog "Role Reboot" where she called her sons--as well as all men in general--"not safe" and capable of rape.
The horrible truth of the post is that it was written despite the fact that she claims one of her sons is suicidal. She asserted that she shames her sons for their roles in perpetuating "rape culture" on the basis that they are males. Upon the viral growth of the post, Allard was given an opportunity to speak on the situation in a Washington Post essay saying:
My essay went semi-viral, and for the first time my sons encountered my words about them on their friends' phone, their teachers' computers, and even overheard them discussed by strangers on a crowded metro bus. It was one thing to agree to be written about in relative obscurity, and quite another thing to have my words intrude on their daily lives
In retaliation for Allard's tirade against her family, Ben Shapiro jumped into the ring to help the boys out. He took Allard's claims to task, lambasting her for her unsubstantiated claims about her sons and men in general. Shapiro said:
Ok, if the son of Jody Allard is watching this right now, please write me an email. I would be happy to have you intern with us over at The Daily Wire. I think you deserve better than what your mother has provided to you: A label as a potential rapist.
Since the offer was made, Allard's son Jared, 19, allegedly sent a resume to the Daily Wire.
Allard denies her son sent in the resume on Twitter, but Jared told Independent Journal Review he was interested in working for Shapiro.
Shapiro also told the IJR, "We're excited to take a look at his resume and see how he can help us!" and "We'd love to help out a solid guy who's willing to buck his own mother's idiocy in favor of decency and logic."
In the piece conducted by IJR, Allard's son seem to be very level-headed young men. Jared's brother said, "I don't, necessarily, think there is a 'rape culture,' which I'm sure she's mentioned. I do, however, try to make sure I know where my decisions come from, and how they may impact other people."
Although no formal application has been submitted by Jared, arrangements are reportedly being made for he and Shapiro to discuss the internship possibility further.
