The perpetually predatory and lyrically questionable Robin Thicke attempted to gain buzz for his new single Paula (totally not a song about trying to force himself back into a dead relationship, BTW) by asking Twitter to send him questions via the #AskThicke hashtag. Unsurprisingly, people used the hashtag to lob any and all number of pot shots at the pop crooner. Like these:

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elderly Caucasian male conspiracy is responsible, the original feminists who advocated simply for equal rights have been replaced by an angry legion of sexless caricatures who seem to have stumbled upon a pharmaceutical company dumpster full of little libido-killing pills.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