Memeday: This imaginary feminist I just made up is a hypocrite! Part 1

Apparently, if someone pays for you on a date you should lose the right to vote
Apparently, if someone pays for you on a date you should lose the right to vote

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.

QUEEN

Apparently Rule #2 of Feminist Club has to do with pulling chairs out and holding doors open:

holddoor

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.

realmen

And her choice of dance partners:

danceclub

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.

screwsover

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:

abortion

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?

hardship

And now it’s time for a message from Upside-Down Backwards Land:

sofat

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:

bentley

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.

raped

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.

Sorry for the quality, heavily cropped.

And some of our local fauna, not a pet, obviously, though we hear her (I’m saying “her” because we seem to have a litter of pups every year as well) talking about things many nights:

Not sure if the embed will work on this site, but I’ll try. Has anyone seen the Inside Amy Schumer sketch on the Twitter “I’m going to rape and kill you” emoji?

It’s very darkly hilarious

Well, it didn’t embed. I guess it just links. Oh well.

In 2009, a call from the White House requesting Dr. Farrell to be an advisor to the White House Council on Women and Girls led to Dr. Farrell creating and chairing a commission to create a White House Council on Boys and Men.

So it’s a commission to create a council.

I’m going to assume that the White House really did ask him to advise the White House Council on Women and Girls. So I have to ask again, do the people at the White House know how to do an Internet search?

I wouldn’t make that assumption. Here is the list of council members. He is nowhere near it.

https://www.whitehouse.gov/administration/eop/cwg/council

The council didn’t even have dedicated staff until recently. It was originally staffed by designees from other executive-branch agencies. The Department of State doesn’t need Farrell’s advice and I don’t find it plausible that it would reach out to Farrell for any reason.

I don’t know how that info got on Wikipedia. There is no citation for that particular assertion, and my guess would be that there is no citation that can be produced that doesn’t rely on Farrell’s own words. My information is that Farrell approached the WH about creating his own council. That proposal has been rejected. There is not one, and will not be one in the Obama administration. Their proposal was laughable. They apparently didn’t realize that they’d have to step up their game by a boatload if they had a snowball’s chance of being taken seriously, and treated it like they were going to make an AVFM auxiliary. A group of neighborhood kids proposing that the White House make a council on small businesses in the lemonade industry would have been more professional about it.

These memes do nothing to challenge the stereotype that these kinds of men don’t actually KNOW any women…

Hey, you look like a fellow DAZ studio user. Do you have any of your renders up any where? I got a few of mine on the daz website under the same name I use here.

Well-spotted! And yes, I have my stuff at http://skiriki.deviantart.com/ under various gallery sections (main one is empty) 🙂 Likewise, I have at DAZ’s own gallery with this username as well, but less than what I have at dA. There’s even bonus freebies at dA (and ShareCG and Renderosity).

I go offline for a few hours and when I come back I get to go squeee! all over again.

@ Mish – always great to meet a fellow First Dog fan! As I’m in the UK I have the Guardian website to thank for introducing me to the Dog. I sometimes have to google the references but I do love his scorn, and can’t think of a more fun way to get a tiny bit educated about Australia.

@ Chiomara – oh my goodness, what a little honey! Welcome to the world, small person.

Now I’m going to see if I can share a kittypic…

Oh, apparently I can’t.

Let us know if you need help with posting kitty pics.

I just heard a meow next to me and looked over to see this:

@Youthful Indescretion
First you need to get it online using an image hosting service. I use imgur. Once it’s online, you usually need to right-click (or on Android hold your finger on the screen) and select open image so that the only thing in the Web browser is your image. Then copy the url from the address bar and paste it into your message on a line by itself. It should automatically embed as long as the image address is on its own line and ends in an image format (.jpg, .gif, etc.).

That last meme is just ‘you are a feminist therefore you should be raped’

Of course it’s ‘just one person’ making this meme as numerous antifems will point out, but how many dya reckon feel this spite, share this meme?

It hurts.

Paradoxical Intention - Resident Cheeseburger Slut

@Youthful Indiscretion: If you’re on a computer, you can also right click the image and select “copy image location”, and then paste it in.

It has to be on its own line, however. You’ve got the right kind of address though!

@Skiriki, I thought yours must be a Bengal – those gorgeous markings are unmistakable. And thanks for posting the Twitter link 🙂

@bluecat, yay First Dog! One of the best things about his move to The Guardian has been the massive audience reach, compared to before. He used to be published on a smaller, paywalled (but very good) news site called Crikey.

This morning there are more furry pictures, and even a baby hooman (she’s lovely, Chiomara, and you sound like the best auntie ever).

I love this thread. It’s keeping me sane and happy while marking assignments, and takes the edge off the so-called memes in the actual post. CPphazor, you are so right 🙁

Since we are on this topic, is anyone willing to tell me how to embed a video link? If it’s too complicated for the thread perhaps a good link that explains it? I’m pretty new to forum posting myself.

Regarding animal rescues, my wife has a pet parakeet, which pretty much rules out kitties and puppies for us. However, we have adopted two bearded dragons from Friends of Scales here in Chicago, and they were incredibly helpful (they even drove the first one’s aquarium to my house).

I’d share pics, but haven’t signed up for anything other than facebook. Would a link to facebook pics work?

Sounds like you just have to go there in person and talk to people to get an idea of a shelter ‘s quality. And I guess take a look at the animals and see if they look happy/healthy.

@Skiriki

Thanks! And thanks to everyone who helped out us tech noobs 🙂
