New favorite Instagram: Feminist_Tinder

I’m definitely swiping right on Feminist_Tinder, a new Instagram account where one woman is documenting what it’s like navigating Tinder as a feminist. Laura Nowak just added the line “hello i am a feminist” to her profile, and the guys do the rest.

Quote of the Day: “Men used to marry to have sex” so they no longer have an incentive

Suzanne Venker is back at Fox News doing what she does best: blaming feminism for something everything. This time, it’s feminism’s fault that men supposedly don’t want to get married anymore. Why? Because there’s exactly “nothing in it for them.”

WAW

Video of the Day: “Are you or anyone you know under the spell of WAW?”

Over at conservative think tank American Enterprise Institute (AEI) this week, resident gender scholar and (not so) “Factual Feminist” Christine Hoff Sommers warns us about a new form of gender-based oppression that prevails today — an issue so common, social scientists have given it a name: the Women are Wonderful phenomenon (WAW for short).

Speaking of the use of personal characteristics: GamerGate lore now holds that any woman with dyed hair is an attention-seeker to be feared and mistrusted.

Scrutiny: Some thoughts about thick skin

“Grow a thicker skin”: this admonition is given to pretty much anyone that spends even a micron of their time in the public eye of Sauron. It’s been on my mind a lot lately due to the GamerGate business that’s wracked the video game world of late.

Wednesday morning Fox News feminism drinking game!

“Women want less government in their lives. They want to make their own decisions. They want freedom to choose for their children, their families. That’s what women really want.”

You are so spot on, Morgan Brittany. I can’t wait to see you next weekend outside an abortion clinic, escorting patients inside so they can obtain safe, legal abortion care. Right? Wrong. So, so wrong.

You can actually turn this video into a drinking game…

New Favorite Comic: Manfeels Park

The brilliant new comic Manfeels Park, created by two women based in Scotland, pairs scenes from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice with actual anti-feminist, mansplaining comments on the interwebs.

As Sarah Seltzer notes at Salon, in a good encapsulation of the feminist response to sexist trolls, most of the comics involve Lizzy Bennet rolling her eyes at the inane comments of the men around her. In this one, Lizzy stifles a giggle at an argument about why women shouldn’t be ordained in the Mormon church…

New Favorite Tumblr: Confused Cats Against Feminism

Depressed, disturbed, almost-but-not-quite-amused by the “Women Against Feminism” phenomenon and Tumblr? There’s an antidote for that: Confused Cats against Feminism.

Like many of the women featured on the Women Against Feminism Tumblr, these cats don’t seem to really get what feminism is. Here are some great ones. Upload your own images. I would. But I don’t have a cat. Plus I’m allergic.

The one where I need help understanding why MRAs don’t become feminists

I have to confess that I’ve never paid much attention to “Men’s Rights Activists.” By “not much” I mean “none at all and why would I do that to myself.” Even before I identified as a feminist, the whole concept of an MRA seemed silly. Our entire society is centered around guaranteeing the rights of cisgender hetero-identified men, with a corrupted definition of “rights” that has included the ability to oppress. What exactly is an MRA fighting for?

Apparently, there are issues MRAs care deeply about, where they believe men have been disadvantaged. OK. Sure. I’ll bite. Talk to me MRAs. Tell me what’s on your mind.
