The Casual Feminist: Who Doesn’t Love a Meme?

11

Sometimes we all need a little help with a snappy comeback.  When it comes to women and their bodies, we’ve got you covered!


This is the place where I could blither forth with some gaseous explanation of why this is an appropriate medium for my message of casual feminism, but I know you’re already skipping down to the glorious memes because the Internets have ruined us all for contiguous thought, and you’re not reading even this far into the introduction anyway. Aardvark pudding-pants potassium masquerade. See? No one cares. Now, on to the pictures with words on them!

Share and enjoy. Use them in good health.

With all of these politicians, employers and religious institutions in y pants, I may step up my waxing regimen.

Whatever you decide to do with your uterus is fine with me.

As a mother, I'm going to ask you to stop saying "as a mother" to validate whatever divisive bullshit you plan to spout next.

Feminism is the crazy idea that women are people and should be treated accordingly.

Kindly keep your politics out of my pants.

Dominion over my body is a basic human right, not a radical agenda.

Indoor plumbing is not witchcraft.

Every time a famous, successful woman says "I'm not a feminist," a misogynist gets his wings.

Strong girls rock out loud.

I am the world's leading expert on myself, my life, my body and my choices.

When i say "with all due respect," I mean "go to hell."

Jackasses will jackass.
