Swanson and Buehner, Conservative radio hosts, ably tear apart strawfeminism


It really is something like watching a circle jerk, honestly. I feel dirty and unsatisfied and like I was denied what I actually paid the price of admission for, in having watched these two construct then tear apart a systematic listing of every trope on the Straw Feminism tvtropes page. I feel ashamed that these people think they’re intellectually curious, and even worse, that people actually consider these arguments persuasive.

Your challenge… find something in here that remotely approximates reality, and not something like “they’re using real English words”. I listened to it twice, and I’ve got nothing. Jodi threw her hands up in frustration and walked away at about the third sentence.

Sarah Palin is a kind of feminist? Bahahaha.

    Ugh! I hate not knowing what right wing, mysoginist category of feminism I fall under. I’m getting married and will not submit to my future husband, but I’m also a STEM academic! Where do I fit in this world?! Maybe I should send them my picture so they can let me know if I exceed the cuteness threshold…

    Man, I hate strawfeminists. That’s why I’ve become a Men’s Rights Straw Activist — or MRSA for short. We’re infectious!

    @ mdvalero —

    If you figure out what category is appropriate, let me know. A good third of my friends are there, too.

    It’s disappointing to me that these idiots are labeling ALL women who become pregnant and are on government assistance as feminists. Why don’t they label all the fathers as “dead beats”.

    I might have more complaints against the commentators, but I was only able to listen to the first 30 seconds. Any more than that and my head would have exploded.
