That Anti-Feminist Bingo card for handy reference...

Most popular at the moment seem to be "I'll tell you what's wrong with feminism" and "If you want to be treated like a lady you'd better start acting like one".

"But I like my women feminine"... Oh how I laughed... I actually got told once I was "too girly to be a feminist". grin

<runs in with a big black marker pen and scrawls"this is offensive to women"all over the card>

Now I'm pretty sure I've got 'Patriarchy hurts men too' and 'Women can't be objective about gender issues'. Assuming we don't have to get the exact words just the sentiment.

Sparky, you anarchist! shock

Oh excellent Proles. I am always particularly confused by the "you're making all women sound like/act like victims" one - when people say that my face actually does this: confused

Women are victims of things - that's what we're (partly) fussing about! But that's not ALL we are obviously. It's just such a daft and weird thing to say. Like, "honestly, The Press, you're making victims of paedophiles sound like victims!". Well, yes. But that's hardly either blaming them, or making them look bad, is it?

My personal favourite, missing from both is "Feminism has ruined the lives of millions of men!"

I've seen 13/24 on the second one on MN.

justforaminute Wed 17-Aug-11 18:40:46

Oh, good answer to that always-annoying comment, Elephants.

I think the 'Oh, if only you were a bit less [insert central tenet of feminism here], you feminists would get loads done' is my bugbear.

DontCallMeFrothyDragon Wed 17-Aug-11 18:42:21

I'm sure I've seen all but 2 on the second one. Maybe 3.

DontCallMeFrothyDragon Wed 17-Aug-11 18:44:01

Ooooh, wasn't it "drippy" feminists getting targeted last week?

evenlessnarkypuffin Wed 17-Aug-11 18:45:07

15/25 on MN. People in real life don't tend to say things like that to me and live

ElephantsAndMiasmas Wed 17-Aug-11 18:45:55


Drippy ones, really? I thought I'd seen every variation of "I lurrrve feminism but you've made it all NASTY by doing XYZ" but that's a new one on me.

Haha! It was on the first thread about men not taking no for an answer unless you mention a boyfriend/husband.
