Angry Feminist Angry Angry Feminist Isn’t Angry Feminist Enough

You know every word, do not lie.
Okay, we are going to say DISCLAIMER ALERT and TRIGGER WARNING, because we are about to write about how a thing written by a person who has ALWAYS been personally very nice to us is Wrong About A Thing.* We trust that she and we are both grown-up enough to have an intellectual discussion without it degenerating into FISTICUFFS. So, without further ado: Read more on Angry Feminist Angry Angry Feminist Isn’t Angry Feminist Enough…

Bic Sorry For Being A Dic In Sexist South African Ad

Fuck up like an ad agency
So here’s one way to really win the Lady Demographic: On a South African holiday celebrating women’s achievements, Bic, the maker of writing utensils, ran a Facebook post with the empowering message, “Think like a man.” Maybe they should have been even more empowering and changed the slogan to “Think like a male ad executive thinks an empowered woman might think. And show some cleavage, babe.” It’s almost as brilliant a marketing fail as that time the Goldman Sachs gave women at a tech convention a pretty makeup mirrors and nail files.

Wingnuts Invent Fun New Way To Slur Each Other, Hooray!

There might be some racist implications to this term. But only pussies care about racism
Heya Wonkers! We would like to have words with you. Or rather, a word with you. And that word is “cuckservative,” which is the hot new catchphrase of Summer 2015. Expect to start seeing it everywhere soon, and also to be completely fucking sick of it by September. What exactly cuckservative means depends on who you ask, but the one thing that everyone agrees on is that it’s a portmanteau of “cuckolded” and, duh, “conservative,” and that it started being flung gleefully around the Twitter machine about a month ago, mostly but not exclusively by supporters and fans of Donald Trump. And it’s used by True Manly Conservatives to mock Republicans who have let themselves be co-opted by the Establishment, which is hopelessly tainted by feminized liberalism. Also, depending on who’s using it, it may be — probably is — proudly affiliated with racism and nativism. Or as Joan Walsh explains in Salon: Read more on Wingnuts Invent Fun New Way To Slur Each Other, Hooray!…
  But What About The Purple People?

White People Upset At White People For Being Mean To Blacks, Guess It’s Serious Now

No, but the little booger has made some unbelievable gaffes
So you know how polls about race always seem to show that black people think racism is still a thing, while white people mostly perceive it as something from the Olden Times, like way back before “Good Times,” even? Here’s a bit of a surprise, maybe! A new Gallup Poll finds that, in the weird language of polling, “Americans’ satisfaction with the way blacks are treated has declined to a new low in Gallup’s 15-year trend, now at 49%. This is a sharp drop from two years ago, when 62% were satisfied.” That’s a pretty weird question to start with — “How satisfied are you with how blacks are treated in U.S. society?” — but the results do actually seem to indicate that even white people are sort of vaguely aware that things may not be all that great. Obviously, this is Obama’s fault, or an indication that politically-correct media and college teachers and videos of black people getting beaten up and shot by cops have distorted reality.

Use These 5 Black Hippity-Hop Songs To Oppress Sean Hannity’s Lily-White Ass

Sean Hannity knows these are the faces of the True Oppressors.
What is WRONG with Sean Hannity? No, we mean besides the obvious things like his incompletely formed sense of his own masculinity. Hannity had a MELTDOWN over the Confederate Flag on his radio show Wednesday. You see, if retailers are going to get rid of the Confederate flag, he is FINE WITH THAT, but fair’s fair, and they should also ban all that blackity-black music the kids like to twerk to. Right? Because if the Confederate flag is hurtful to black people because of its racist, murderous implications — thanks solely to confessed white supremacist murderer Dylann Roof and for no other reasons at all — then surely rappers who use the N-word in their music are hurting black people just as much as some dumb flag is, right?

Some Chicks Like Granny Panties, And The NYT Is ON IT!

Take THAT, patriarchy!
From the august pages of our nation’s newspaper of record, which always keeps us apprised of the national zeitgeist — like how Jeb Bush doesn’t eat enough fatty foods for Real Americans to vote for him, and some little boys don’t like wearing jeans — comes this latest trend watch from the always absurd style section of the New York Times: Read more on Some Chicks Like Granny Panties, And The NYT Is ON IT!…

Gavin McInnes: Stop Being Miserable, Ladies, And Be Housewives As God Intended

Ah, the good old days
There is this guy, Gavin McInnes, and he is terrible, so of course he is on Fox News, like, all the time. And on Thursday, he went on Sean Hannity’s teevee show to make Sean giggle so hard about how miserable women are because feminism won’t let them stay home and be glorified like in the good old days. What, you think we’re joking? We are not. Read more on Gavin McInnes: Stop Being Miserable, Ladies, And Be Housewives As God Intended…

Bill O’Reilly: Leave That Sexist Barack Obama Alooooooone!

Sexism expert.
Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com If you’ve been obsessed like we have with the utterly riveting debate over the Trans-Pacific Partnership, you are aware that there is a bit of a meta-flap about how commie gay Kenyan usurper Barack Obama can add “lady-hater” to his list of adjectives, because he called your favorite Sen. Elizabeth Warren by her first name in an interview. The exact quote: “The truth of the matter is that Elizabeth is, you know, a politician like everybody else.” You might be saying, “But Elizabeth is her name and they are grown-ups, and the president calls girls and boys by their first names, WHAT?” But that didn’t stop Ohio Democrat Sen. Sherrod Brown from saying Obama is a big old sexist, because he never would have said “Sherrod, you are A Idiot,” he would have said “Mighty penis-having Senator Brown, you are A Idiot.” (Even though yes he would — and has.)

Phyllis Schlafly’s Niece Pines For Olden Days When A Man Could Get A Little Ass From His Wife

Dang bitches, ruining marriage for everybody.
Marriage, it is under attack, on both sides of the Atlantic! And Phyllis Schlafly’s niece, Suzanne Venker, knows why, because Venker has spent many years studying at the base of Schlafly’s gargoyle hooves, and she’s picked up a little information along the way. Before we even get in to reading, and thus mocking, this column, let’s make a guess as to how it goes: Feminists ruined marriage by saying “Hey, we would like to be equal and also not be shamed about sex,” which led to gays taking marriage and making it more egalitarian, and now the straight men have no power, and nobody in Europe or US America gets married, and all because some pit-haired 1960s lady named Bernice wanted the freedom to fuck. Let’s see how close we are! Read more on Phyllis Schlafly’s Niece Pines For Olden Days When A Man Could Get A Little Ass From His Wife…

Men’s Rights Dude Tells Fox & Friends Why Marriage Is A Scam To Take His Man-Money

Won't someone please think of the men?
Tuesday’s Fox & Friends had a pretty darned exciting segment with “Men’s Rights” dweeb Peter Lloyd, who calls himself a “suffragent,” and has written a book called Stand By Your Manhood, all about why men should never get trapped into marriage, which is BAD. It wasn’t quite the orgy of feminist-bashing that Fox might have hoped for, but heaven knows they tried.

  Actually It's About Ethics In Gamergate Filmmaking

Gamergate ‘Documentary’ Derailed By Sad, We Mean ‘Hilarious,’ Men’s Rights Slapfight

no, YOU take it back!
“Gamergate” is basically about telling stupid women they need to shut up and stop trying to ruin videogaming culture by being feminists. It’s featured a parade of horribles, like death and rape threats and really tragic crimes against logic. There’s a fair bit of overlap between the Gamergaters and the “Men’s Rights Activists” crowd, because both have the important mission of keeping women from emasculating real people and imposing lesbian communist tyranny on the world. But today we are pleased to bring you a Gamergate story that isn’t about horrible vicious online smears of women. Instead, it’s about a couple of these terrible He-Man Women Haters Club dorks going to war with each other, and it is a beautiful thing.

Hero Science Man Matt Walsh: Feminists Hate Women, Because Slut Pills Kill

Lyra, you doofus. Bon Bon's a girl... you don't even need those, silly pony...
Matt Walsh, a dingus who writes for Glenn Beck’s Flaming Internet Hole, presents a science-based case against The Pill, which he has discovered is really, really bad for women, because SCIENCE. For one thing, he read a genuine medical study that found “women who took chemical birth control at any point in their lives show a 50 percent higher likelihood of developing a certain type of brain tumor.” That’s scary! Also it means that The Pill lets men have consequence-free sex, while women will all die of diseased brains! Read more on Hero Science Man Matt Walsh: Feminists Hate Women, Because Slut Pills Kill…

Attention Beta Males: Chuck C. Johnson Answering Your Questions About How To Date Hot Asian Ladies

Hi, Chuck C. Johnson here. So many of you were talking on Twitter yesterday about my terrific insights on dating and finding love that I decided to open it up into an entire advice column. Like Ann Landers, but smarter and more handsome and ginger-y, and of course with a hot Asian wife because I can’t even do something as simple as settling down with a true love and helpmeet without being overtly gross and racist about it and fetishistically reducing her to nothing more than her race which is Asian and therefore she must be meek and not feminist because did I mention I am grossly racist and love talking about things like dating “outside ‘the race'”? Let’s look at some of the letters you sent me. Read more on Attention Beta Males: Chuck C. Johnson Answering Your Questions About How To Date Hot Asian Ladies…

Deleted Comments: Alas, We Have Offended A Sensitive Soul (Or Men’s Rights Activist, Same Difference)

To The Management: Please correct this image. I would never use Courier. On second thought, never mind. You'd just replace it with Comic Sans.
Your Wonkette isn’t perfect, lord only knows, and when we err, we seek to make amends. Which brings us to this very important message from our comments queue, from “jrayhawk” (please, no Ray Jay Johnson jokes), who felt that we treated the subject of a recent story quite shabbily. Friday, we ran a story about several important developments in gender relations, including the sad tale of Scott Aaronson, a professor at MIT who has pretty much had it with how feminists have criminalized every last aspect of male sexuality. Jrayhawk felt that we failed to give Aaronson an even break because we sided with the mean women instead of with their victim: Read more on Deleted Comments: Alas, We Have Offended A Sensitive Soul (Or Men’s Rights Activist, Same Difference)…
