I was in work today and dealing with a horrible client and we were having a discussion and he obviously really disagreed with me so he decide that the most obvious insult to throw at me was to call me a “feminist”
Who knew that being called a feminist was a insult

Ridiculous is right.
I run an empowerment program for little girls that incorporates an active healthy lifestyle. Last week I had a voicemail from some gruff sounding man that my program should be called “Fems outta control”. WTH? weirdos—

@mallo: but really, when peopel make stupid sexist comments towards me I usually put them in their place by saying something along the lines of “oh…how unfortunate, I don’t think that came out as funny as you’d hoped.” or “that was sexist, and it’s not acceptable here.”
People tend to then realize they sound ignorant and change the subject

@Laurenskii: oh I did
After this he asked me if there was “a man” he could talk to about the issue. I informed him that my brother would probably be available but felt that I should tell him that he (is also) a feminist and also gay, and was that more suitable?
I don’t think that he was too happy after that

@mallo: haha great response re your brother! Some people are dicks, to put it simply. I also think it’s rediculous that alot of people (often men) think that when a woman simply stands up for herself she’s a feminist. I mean seriously people.. Can we move out of the 1950’s and in to the 21st century please?

That is the funniest thing I’ve heard all week!
God, you think women should be treated equally under the law? Silly women and your silly sensibilities! Why don’t you go bake a cake and leave the business to the men!
Seriously, what a DOUCHE! I feel bad for his mother!

Oh my gosh, I totally know what you mean.
I’m a college instructor, and once I was teaching a class, and we were having a little discussion, about what I honestly don’t even recall. But one of my s****y obnoxious (male, lol) students turns to one of the girls and says disgustedly: “Haley, are you a feminist?” Like it was a dirty word.

Your response was AMAZING! I have a ton of angry sexist men who march up to my boss and after they decide they don’t like what she has to say the demanding to speak to the “man who is charge” or the “real manager”. My boss circles a 360 while standing in front of their face. It cracks me up EVERYTIME. She is a total badass when anyone(man or women) disrespects her! Let the kook think what he will.
