20 More Brilliant Insights From #HowToSpotAFeminist

Possible feminist spotted.

 

My post yesterday about #HowToSpotAFeminist— which is still going — didn’t even begin to scratch the surface of the ugliness and absurdity of the hashtag.

So here are some more brilliant insights from the antifeminist squad, including blatant transphobia, rape jokes, shout-outs to Elliot Rodger, several honest-to-goodness “we hunted the mammoths,” and a truly astounding lack of self-awareness.

We Built The Skyscraper For You? The fuck?

So now we’re going to be all Little Red Hen and deny people from participating in a thing if they didn’t directly create it?

“Oh, you think you’re entitled to share in this dinner I cooked? That’s cute.”

“Did you suffer through four years of medical school? No? Well, what makes you think you can come swanning in here with a broken leg asking for treatment?”

I’m gonna say yes, since that attitude is the backbone of Gamergate. Erroneously, but still.

Alrighty then! Hope they have fun recreating all of civilization on their lonesome.

Also, HA HA HA at “do you even comic book?” I wasn’t aware that basic human rights are contingent on being able to name all the members of X-Force. By that measure, 99.99% of people flunk.

I can’t name any of the members of X-Force, but can any of these schmoes name all the campers in Lumberjanes? No?

Not only can I do that, despite never meeting or interacting with the book’s authors/creators, I can talk intelligently about why the camp matron is probably named after the absolutely brilliant comic creator Megan Gedris who gave us the thoroughly awesome I was Kidnapped By Lesbian Pirates from Outer Space and the thoroughly (but disturbingly, if you think about it) sexy Darlin It’s Betta Down Where It’s Wetta.

Also, Gedris created, writes and draws Yu-Me which is supposed to be important because critical acclaim and character development and some shit. But really, how can you top Lesbian Pirates from Outer Space? How????

By having them ride dinosaurs?

X-Force I don’t know. But I made a family tree for the Marvel version of the Asgardian royal family once (and a flowchart explaining Loki).

Oh wait… Loki is fangirl bait so he (they?) probably don’t count as true comic knowledge.

Malitia – whenever I read about Marvel Aesir, I have to ignore the shrill pedant deep inside carping, “Loki was Odin’s blood brother! That makes him Thor’s kinda uncle!” Too much D’Aulaire as a kid.

Your flowchart sounds great.

I told my kids years ago that I stopped reading X-Men before Wolverine was introduced; they were clearly gobsmacked.

Yeah. For comicbooks “just roll with it” is my motto. Especially in the case of the Aesir… and since some years and additions. For example: as currently stands there are ten realms.

I needed to make one as this is the 3rd Loki Marvel has (and I’ll go with they as pronoun because of various reasons), also things like “Loki’s guilt/subconscious run away with their power to play supervillain and make them confess.” (Young Avengers 2013) make perfect sense around them somehow.

Before Wolverine… well, that means original X-Men. Most of my knowledge of that part of the ‘verse comes from the Claremont era. ^^;

loon for the Girl complaining that she can’t dress like a slut to her grandpas funeral

This one is just quirky. First, it’s so oddly specific for a hashtag meant to smear feminists in general. Does he think a certain percentage of self-identified feminists have made this specific complaint in regards to one of their grandfather’s funerals? Also, assuming he’s referring to an adult feminists, who or what is preventing them from attending a funeral while looking as slutty as they like? Is slut shaming common at funerals? So many questions.

Finally, “Loon for the Girl” sounds like a Belle & Sebastian song title, very twee.

I don’t work in a skyscraper, but the building I work in was completed before I was born. As was the house I live in. Do I get an exemption? I didn’t help build the car I drive? What should I do?

By a Land Rover. Within a year you*will* have rebuilt it.

Brooked, I think (and I could be wrong) that the tweeter saw/heard about slut walks and did the usual manuresphere lack of research into what those are for and extrapolated from there.

I hate when people say that someone should be ashamed by the state of their body. Nobody deserves to be ashamed of their body (except for maybe rapists but it’s not their body that they should be ashamed of, but the thing that they did with their body).

Of course the Elliot Rodger pic was heinous but I didn’t want to give that fucker any more attention than he deserves. Thank you all for the cute animal brain bleach

@Virgin Mary: Does dog hair count? I don’t have a cat but my (blond) dog sheds on my (often dark) clothes

@Matilda: Look at that, we both have Roald Dahl names! Granted my character is supposed to be a “bad” one but I never did see her that way.

They didn’t help build the skyscraper but think they deserve an office at the top.

So true, Mister Woman Hater!

I too remember the good old days when the construction workers who built a building got offices in the penthouse suite.

I think it would be a better system if the people who put in the most physical effort got the most reward. Paper pushing is already desirable because you don’t have to work as hard physically but it gets rewarded more than the less desirable labor? Of course some people hate paper pushing and some people love manual labor, but I’ve always felt like the system is backwards in how labor is rewarded.
