#TellAFeministThankYou is trending on Twitter and the ensuing feminist lovefest is kind of making my Tuesday. Check out some highlights (both the good and the troll-liciously bad) and then go add your voice to the mix!

#TellAFeministThankYou 2 my mom for replacing “farmer & his wife” with “farmers” in books when I was a kid bc “she works on the farm too.”

#TellAFeministThankYou Thanks to all the feminists of color whose political frameworks+vision+action so often coopted w/out credit or kudos.

Feminists: Thanks for gently reminding me of my privileges as a man. This has made me more forgiving of white people. #TellAFeministThankYou

These were all wonderful and made me feel very warm and cuddly. But of course it wouldn’t be a discussion of feminism on Twitter if it didn’t bring out some HILARIOUSLY bad trolls, reproduced here for your amusement:
#TellAFeministThankyou for convincing men and women that self interest more important than interests of their children.

#tellafeministthankyou for overreacting to every compliment and making a guy feel rapey for being polite

#TellAFeministThankYou for saying you want equality, but really wanting to be superior.

And perhaps the saddest of all:
I wouldn’t #TellAFeministThankYou. They need to get back in the kitchen.
