Cats respond to #WomenAgainstFeminism with new blog: Confused Cats Against Feminism

You can't argue with that!
You can’t argue with that!

So two of the females in my household have decided, sadly, that they want to get in on this whole Women Against Feminism thing. Yes, that’s right: they want to publicly declare their opposition to feminism.

Against my better judgment, I agreed to take pictures of them with signs spelling out their objections. None of their arguments make much sense to me, but, hey, they’re entitled to make their case on the internet if that’s what they want.

There’s just one little complication: the two antifeminist females in my household are not, you know, human females. They’re cats. Not being, strictly speaking, women, they can’t really post their pics to the Women Against Feminism blog.

So in the interest of free speech and fair play, I’ve set up a Tumblr blog where my cats, and other cats who share their beliefs, can take their stand against feminism – no matter how ridiculous their arguments are.

I present to you: Confused Cats Against Feminism.

You can see the first post there now, featuring my own adorably furry traitors to their gender.

I urge you to submit pictures of your own antifeminist cats, with their own little signs.

You can submit pics on the Confused Cats Against Feminism site, post pics in the comments below, or you can email them to me here at futrelle at manboobz.com.

There’s just one rule: your cats must be genuinely confused about why they oppose feminism, and generally unclear about what feminism is.

And the ideas expressed on their signs must be their own. In other words, I don’t want any Men’s Rights Activists paying cats on Fiverr to hold their signs for them. That shit won’t fly in this litterbox!

All that said, blatant photoshopping is perfectly fine. This is the internet, after all.

And if your animal friend is something other than a cat, that’s fine too. As long as it’s possible that they might think that they’re a cat.

Also, feel free to put the word “Poland” or the Polish flag on your pictures. A lot of the women on the Women Against Feminism blog do that, for some reason.

In my childhood we basically ruined a dog by not having him desexed: dad was opposed for unstated reasons to the removal of our new dog’s balls, and we lived in a rural area where everyone knows that you should desex your dogs to prevent troublesome roaming behaviour because you don’t have secure suburban fences. Well dad got his way, the dog started roaming everywhere and pissing on our neighbours’ homes, and we had to give him away to a shelter because it had by that time become apparent to us that we were not, as a family unit, responsible enough to take care of a dog as it should be cared for.

Am I the only one who really wants to see more photos of David’s cats?

I could so see misogynists in the far future, after their banishment to the cold of Pluto, totally re engineering animals to fit human patriarchal ideas. Just imagine what they’d do to hyenas. And oddly enough ancient philosophers did believe that bees were ruled by kings.

Loving all the great photos and cute pets!

@saphy – you’re lucky your dog lived! Where I come from, some farmer would have shot him (stupid hillbillies).

It’s weird tons of people I know seem terminally incapable of not calling all cats she.

I can, of course, think of one particular cat who tends to have the exact opposite happen to her.

I found these cats on Tunacannnn.com and rewarded them handsomely for pretending to have opinions.

And, of course, some cats are not quite as confused as they pretend to be…

saphy, I don’t think it’s known for sure if a female cat’s scream during mating is from pain – the male’s penis is barbed – or not. It certainly doesn’t stop the females mating repeatedly, but then the urge is so strong when they’re in heat.

From what I understand, when the barbs rip the female cat’s vagina she releases an egg, so the purpose of the barbs is absolutely perfectly timed ovulation.

I reckon a cat vagina has gotta be tough enough to take these barbs without getting wounded. Otherwise, female cats would end up with an extremely high risk of infection due to being torn up in the vagina after mating, and that just seems really stupid from an evolutionary standpoint.

(I should add that I’m not a cat expert, this is just speculation on my part.)

From what I’ve read, the female cat needs the barbs to achieve orgasm, which both releases the egg and brings her out of heat.

When I’ve seen it happen, it’s been astonishing. Like, seriously, if humans orgasmed like cats did I don’t think there’d be any war. It just went on and on and on.

It’s the same with rabbits. For years scientists could not work out how to artificially inseminate rabbits, until they sussed that the buck has bristles on his penis which trigger ovulation.

The copulation of cats that I’ve witnessed was hair-raising and earsplitting and looked quite gruelling (every time an attempt failed the queen turned and slashed at the tom’s face), but both participants seemed enthusiastically consenting and in no hurry to stop.

Forgot to add: where they artificially inseminate rabbits they use something like a small paintbrush brush with two bristles on it.

That article on Discovery was interesting. My cat is the exception that proves the rule, I guess. He’s fine being home with me alone, but once my husband comes home, I may as well not exist for the most part.

I never knew bon bons were made of mammoths. That explains a whole lot.

@grumpycatisagirl – yes. The quality of bon bons has decreased significantly since the poor woolies went extinct. Modern elephant is a poor substitute, so I make do with many, many man tears.

I just read more of that Women against Feminism blog and I was shocked on seeing a few of the comments, I mean I know that they are ridiculous but Geez that’s uncalled for. It makes me really mad. I’ll stop going back.

I don’t need feminism because I already have a man who stays at home when I hunt with the girls <3 and also eating Bon bons

Way back when I was at University (Berkeley,California), there was a satirical anti-feminist group called Ladies Against Women. It’s unsettling how many of the tropes they used to mock anti-feminists are now being used with complete seriousness by the current generation of antis.

I’m so happy David got two shout-outs in the media! Hopefully, that will help offset the poo being flung at him on Twitter. “Gender terrorist”??

Thank you for posting that video! The barking cat is hilarious and the “Oops, I’ve been caught” look is priceless.

Does Woofy just sit there reading this blog waiting for opportunities to insert his pissy little bon-mots? That’s so sad.

He’s probably crying because he hasn’t had an opportunity to express his undying love for Pauly for a while.

In all seriousness, what kind of pathetically misanthropic individual gets all sour-faced and irritable at the sight of silly pictures of cats holding signs? Woody is another candidate for personality implant surgery.

That’s the best description of trolls yet! If a Pratchett elf thought it was projecting glamour but wasn’t … hmm, sounds like PUAs, too.
