36 STUPID FEMINIST QUESTIONS ANSWERED

  • Ikke synkroniseret
    (beep)
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    (screaming)
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    (jazzy intro)
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    How does it feel to be
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    the same sex as Donald Trump?
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    How does it feel to be
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    the same sex as Sarah Palin?
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    How does it feel to be
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    the same sex as Michelle Bachman?
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    How does it feel to be the
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    same sex as anybody you disagree with?
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    Why does it even matter
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    whether or not you're the
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    same gender as somebody else?
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    I mean, I'm also the same
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    gender as Abraham Lincoln, Einstein,
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    and the guy who introduced
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    chocolate to the Western world.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    So what are you even getting
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    at with this question?
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    Are you trying to say Donald Trump
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    is bad, and Donald Trump
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    is a man, therefore men are bad?
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    Why do you hate rom-coms?
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    Or do you just feel like you
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    need to hate them?
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    Everybody likes The Notebook,
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    everybody likes Beyoncé.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    It's just a fact.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    Men hate romantic comedies
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    for the same reason you
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    hate video games with
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    over-sexualized female characters.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    The men in these movies are
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    always willing to sacrifice
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    their careers, their dreams,
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    even their lives to win
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    the lead females' affection.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    Now I don't have any empirical
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    data to back this up, but
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    it seems to me that
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    romantic comedies and
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    romance movies in general
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    cause women to have unrealistic
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    expectations of men and what
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    love should be like, and these
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    become the expectations
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    that men have to live up to,
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    and it's unfair.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    Feminists like to bitch
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    about poor representation of women
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    in media intended for men
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    because they promote body issues
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    and shit like that
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    And I agree, to at least, an extent
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    But it's not any better for men
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    When we're expected to be Prince Charming,
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    ready and willing to sacrifice themselves
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    physically, mentally, and emotionally
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    And we're called selfish for daring to
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    have our own desires
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    or even misogynistic for daring to draw
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    attention to our own problems.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    These movies appeal to the female fantasy
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    of having a night in shining armor
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    swear their entire existence to pleasing
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    them, and thus reinforce these notions
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    within their target audience of women
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    like you that you somehow deserve
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    to have your boyfriends and husbands
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    give up everything that makes them
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    who they are and basically dehumanize
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    themselves for your pleasure and
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    devote 100% of their time and energy
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    to you. The fact that some of you
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    watching this are scoffing at what I
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    just said only proves my point.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    You have fooled yourself into thinking
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    that I'm somehow the one whose being
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    selfish when I object to the notion
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    that men should be expected to cave
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    into all of your demands, for the sake of
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    your perverted idealistic conception
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    of love. And I have no doubts that
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    some of you will accuse me of being
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    bitter at some ex girlfriend for saying
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    that, but I'm not and I will
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    pre-emptively characterize such an
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    argument as out cropping of the
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    very mentality that I'm talking about.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    You expect all of your demands to be
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    catered to, and any man who is unwilling
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    or unable to cater to them must have
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    something wrong with them. Us men are
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    human beings with our own interests and
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    goals, and it's selfish for you to expect
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    us to give all that up for you.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    But these movies condition you to expect
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    exactly that. And that is why we hate
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    romantic comedies. We don't see anything
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    romantic about them. What we see is the
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    reinforcement of unfair and unreasonable
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    expectations about what we should be doing
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    with our own lives. Also, fuck Beyonce.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    "Why do you make women sit around and talk
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    about men in movies when y'all easily just
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    sit around and talk about boobs for hours?
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    One, I don't know, maybe you should be
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    asking that to people who rent romantic
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    comedies you like so much, because
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    those are the movies which have women
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    sitting around talking about men. Or,
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    better yet, instead of complaining about
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    how writers depict women in their movies,
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    maybe you should try being the change you
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    want to see and write your own damn movie.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    Then you could make the female characters
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    sit around and talk about whatever you
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    want. Like how men are oppressing them, or
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    how men are objectifying them or how men
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    are such pigs, or how men spread their
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    legs too far apart on the subway, or how
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    men hate romantic comedies. There's
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    nothing stopping you.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    Two, you're referring to the Bechdel Test,
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    which is bullshit. All the Twilight movies
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    pass the Bechdel Test, but I think you'd
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    hesitate to call any of those movies
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    "pro-feminist."
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    Three, I don't know a single guy who ever
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    talks about boobs for hours at a time.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    I think the only guys who do are medical
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    students learning how to conduct
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    mammograms. You want to know what most of
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    the men I know talk about? Movies, video
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    games, politics, religion, music, sports,
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    cars, boats, technology, work, guns,
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    hunting, places they've been to, people
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    they've met, and so on. The subject of
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    boobs actually rarely ever comes up.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    Contrary to what you may have been told in
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    your Women's Studies class, men don't
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    think about sex constantly. If we did, we
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    would never have invented the camera
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    equipment you used to make this video.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    Four. If anybody's talking about boobs for
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    hours at a time, it's feminists. You're
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    the ones who are always whining about
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    the designs of fictional characters,
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    complaining that fat girls' tits are too
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    big. And in all honesty, the only time I
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    ever even think about a comic book
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    character's tits is when I hear a feminist
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    bring it up. So I think maybe you're
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    projecting.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    "Why do you automatically assume that you
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    won't like the TV or movies that star a
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    female lead?"
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    I don't. In fact, some of my favorite
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    movies and TV shows have female leads.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    I don't know a single man who has ever
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    scoffed at the notion of watching a movie
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    or TV show just because it has a female
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    protagonist. However, I have seen
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    feminists scoff at anything with a male
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    lead.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    "Why are you surprised when women are
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    funny?" "I'm probably funnier than you!"
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    I'm not surprised when women are funny.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    There are plenty of funny women out there.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    [names not recognized], et cetera.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    But I will say that, in general, women are
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    not as funny as men, and I think most
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    women won't agree with that statement.
  • Ikke synkroniseret
    I also think there's a reason for this.
