New Tumblr crush: “Is This Feminist?”

Spoiler alert: The answer is almost always PROBLEMATIC.

Doing science? Sorry. You’re “reinforcing a masculine-supremacist view of intelligence.” Reading? Nope. After all, “the Western canon is white and male-dominated.” Watching sports? Please, that’s a “sort of miniaturized warfare.” Yep, it’s hard being a marginally acceptable feminist full-time. But it’s still feminist to watch Friday Night Lights. So that’s a relief.
