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elderly Caucasian male conspiracy is responsible, the original feminists who advocated simply for equal rights have been replaced by an angry legion of sexless caricatures who seem to have stumbled upon a pharmaceutical company dumpster full of little libido-killing pills.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...

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:

People Lose It On Twitter Over Sexist and Racist Cartoon That Ends Up Being About Fetish Porn

In light of the unsettling realization about what the cartoon actually is, I can (try and) appreciate the "artist's" intentions here were coming from an allegedly good enough place. But I mean, damn, they should've seen the blowback coming on this one at some point. It's almost impressive. In a single cartoon they didn't fail to hit many of the widely-known trigger points. You know...sexism, feminism, etc.
