Thurston Moore has hit out at feminist website Jezebel after the site criticised the affair he had whilst in a relationship with Kim Gordon, Pitchfork reports.

The former Sonic Youth frontman was married to his bandmate for over 25 years but recently opened up to The Fly magazine about their split for the first time. The couple announced they had broken up in October 2011.

Now Moore has taken to
Facebook to respond to Jezebel's post, in which the site called him a "dick" for admitting to being in a relationship with a woman other than Gordon for the last six years.

"Jezebel is gender fascism," he wrote. "By not having any real critical facility to understand, in their case, men in relationship to women (presumably them) they opt to promote hate by imperialist blather. By couching it in feminism is a distinct lack of class, but i'm sure they're having a bit of online fun and when they grow up maybe they'll glean the complexities of real life and love."

He told The Fly earlier this year: "I'm in a really romantic place with Eva [Prinz, his girlfriend]; we've kinda been a couple for close to six years. A lot of those years nobody was very aware of it except us."

Gordon revealed last year that their relationship had come to an end because of a "midlife crisis" and a "starstruck woman".
