This woman landed her dream job as captain of a ship, but it’s a role that has been ridiculed by ignorant men online. In a viral TikTok video, she intelligently takes down one sexist troll who claimed she couldn’t be a captain if she’s a woman.
Taking Down Trolls

A Fantastic Achievement

Tackling Sexism Online

Ignorant Troll Takes Center Stage

Tackling the Nasty Troll
In a TikTok video, the captain addressed this remark with a clever twist, educating the troll in an excellent fashion.
Addressing the Issue
In her video response, Captain McCue declared, “Normally as I’m scrolling through comments and I see something like this, I totally ignore and move on with my life. But I think it’s about high time I address this, because it’s 2020.”
“And in this day and age, I am shocked that someone still doesn’t know the difference between ‘your’ and ‘you’re’.” She continues.
The Epic Put Down
McCue then proceeded to give a grammar lesson, stating, “A quick reference: ‘you’re’ as in ‘you are’, like ‘you are sexist’.”
“’Your’ is something possessive because it belongs to you, like ‘your ignorance’,” She cleverly pointed out.
Stunning Mic Drop Moment
“But don’t worry, I’m here for you. If you need any more clarification, you can find me here. In my captain’s chair.” McCue finished the video in perfect ‘drop the mic’ style.
She’s a Role Model
The video concluded with a captivating shot of Captain McCue confidently reclining in her captain’s seat, leaving viewers impressed by her takedown of the ignorant comment.

Captain Kate McCue was applauded for her grammar lesson, “Preach!!! Grammar is so important.”
Other women rallied together to show their support, “someone get the captain a crown, she’s a queen!”
