feminism

Beyoncé blessed the internet this week with a new album that no one saw coming. Frantic to capitalize on the tsunami of hype (which no one had the chance to do before release), bloggers, hipsters, and internet intellectuals (inter-lectuals?) raced as quickly as they could to dissect the "meaning" behind Queen Bey's new tracks. The result was a cascade of blog posts whose "deep" theories surrounding the album's lyrics sounded about as ridiculous as a middle school English essay.

Conservative talk show host Doc Thompson started the hashtag #HowToSpotAFeminist as a smug commentary on women's issues - and sure enough he received all number of responses snidely criticising their claims to be a part of the movement. It didn't take long, however, for others to jump in and hijack the hashtag with their own feminist commentary. Here's some of our favorites below:

We all know the typical feminist stereotype: angry, in-your-face, and au so naturel. Whichever unseen elderly Caucasian male conspiracy is responsible, the original feminists who advocated simply for equal rights have been replaced by an angry legion of sexless caricatures who seem to have stumbled upon a pharmaceutical company dumpster full of little libido-killing pills. It's gotten so bad that "sexy" is supposedly a bad word.

Exhibit A: Before meeting with American author Katie Roiphe, T Magazine editor Debbie Needleman called Roiphe smart, sassy, and... sexy?

SEXY? CHAUVINISM ALERT WEE WOO WEE WOO. In the words of Dolan, "debi nedlman pls." Don't pay attention to people who try to take a genuine desire for gender equality and repurpose it into emasculating vitriol. They're not the real thing. Twitter users feel the same way, as they've started the #sorryfeminists hashtag in response to Needleman's tweet. So, Debbie, don't worry. You don't need to apologize to Feminism for thinking that another human being is attractive. "Sexy" doesn't have to be a four-letter word... wait...

Fox News just can't win lately. Is Walter White back in the market, and are they smoking that Blue Crystal with Jesse Pinkman somewhere along Skid Row before clocking on for the day, or what? They're consistently failing left and right. If their goal is to alienate huge majorities of their audience, then hell, the ratings just came in, and Fox News, lemme be the first to say -- you're killing it.
