Today, a look at the very terrible “Feminist Nazi” meme, in which this shouty lady has been made into the mouthpiece of feminism at its most hypocriticalist.
I know, that “ist” at the end of “hypocritical” really shouldn’t be there, but somehow “most hypocritical” didn’t seem strong enough.
The doofuses spreading these memes around the internet — the ones featured in this post have been shared anywhere from a couple of hundred to more than 166,000 times — apparently seem to think that Ms. Feminist Nazi offers quite the indictment of feminism.
But there are a couple of teensy problems with that idea. First, a lot of the alleged hypocrisies aren’t actually hypocrisies; many of them are just sort of puzzling. Second, NO FEMINIST HAS EVER SAID ANYTHING LIKE THE STUFF IN THESE MEMES.
Let’s begin with this evil feminist who, like the identical looking evil feminist in the meme above, demands that men pay for everything. This is apparently rule #1 of Feminist Club.
Apparently Rule #2 of Feminist Club has to do with pulling chairs out and holding doors open:
Weird! I thought Feminist Nazis went around yelling a dudes who held doors open for them.
Feminist Nazi also oppresses men with her dating choices.
And her choice of dance partners:
I’m glad the meme-maker specified this was at a dance club, because otherwise I would have assumed it was, I dunno, at a gas station?
You know how MRAs always insist that the wage gap is a “myth?” Well, not so much, if the existence of the wage gap comes in handy for making a meme attacking women.
But apparently these same dude who think women screw their employers over by getting pregnant also sort of think that they shouldn’t be able to get abortions.
That’s about the only thing I was able to get out of this baffling meme:
Is there a single women on earth today, or in all of human history, who honesty believes that they are entitled to never face any kind of hardship?
And now it’s time for a message from Upside-Down Backwards Land:
As a formerly skinny kid who only got fat as an adult, I will only note that I pretty much never got any shit from anyone about my weight … until I started making fun of MRAs online.
Ok, now these things are just getting weird:
And I will end with a meme about which I can only say that HOLY CRAP IS IT AWFUL.
And of course it’s about rape.
To paraphrase a famous quote: Memes about feminism prove the necessity of feminism.
And we’re not even done with this meme yet.
COMING IN PART 2: Even more confusing Feminist Nazi memes, plus some written by actual feminists.
