We Chat With the Founder of Tumblr Hit "Confused Cats Against Feminism" [w/LOLcat pix]

When I first saw the Women Against Feminism Tumblr, I could feel my blood pressure rise. It's a collection of pictures of women holding up signs about why they don't need feminism based on completely inaccurate ideas about what feminism is. They have reasons relating to needing help opening jars and enjoying shaving their legs which have almost nothing to do with the feminist movement and show a complete lack of awareness of how they, and all women, have benefited from it.

Enter David Futrelle, the man behind We Hunted the Mammoth, a blog that wittily tracks misogyny on the internet. He responded to Women Against Feminism the best way anyone can respond to anything: with cats.

Both interviewer and interviewee are liberal weenies, but the cat pix are hilarious (albeit probably not in the way the authors intended). Ignore the whining, enjoy the kitties.

Thanks to Gefn for the link!

Sometimes the cats are smarter than the “owner.”

I’ll take your word for the hilarity, but I won’t give them the hits to their site.

I took a look at the "Women Against Feminism" site yesterday. A common theme was "I'm Against Feminism because I am not a victim."

Pretty good, sez me. The fact that it has liberals up in arms is better. If they're catching flak, then they're over the target.

only demented lefties give human qualities to animals in an attempt to give credence to their cause...insanity rules the liberal mind...

“It’s a collection of pictures of women holding up signs about why they don’t need feminism based on completely inaccurate ideas about what feminism is.”

The author sounds like my cousin’s first college roommate, a ‘true’ communist who claimed USSR (and basically all extant and historical) communism wasn’t ‘true’ communism.

The “No True Scotsman” fallacy gets a lot of mileage.

Check out the FB page. We’re getting slammed by feminists left and right. They are NOT happy about the rebellion and are desperately trying to herd us back into the ranks.

Shaming, educating, belittling... They don’t want descent.

No room for anyone to question the orthodoxy.

Because if someone starts asking questions........then the entire house of cards falls in.
