The Feminsit Menace: As Big a Threat as Correctly Spelled Feminists?

I see what you did there
I see what you did there

Be careful out there, men! There is a terrible new danger I’ve just learned about on Twitter, a group of dastardly man-hating monsters who call themselves “feminsits.”

Apparently they are somewhat similar to those other dastardly man-hating monsters known as “feminists.”

Here’s what I have been able to figure out about them so far.

Feminsits want to make men illegal!

sit12

Feminsits are overloading Tumblr servers!

sit15

Feminsits are terrible at household chores!

sit19

Feminsits probably would not enjoy working in mines!

sit18

Tedious concern trolls have some of the same concerns about feminsits as they do about feminists!

sit17

Feminsits have a thing against windmills!

sit16Feminsits dumb like woman!

sit14

Feminsits hate bikinis!

sit13

Feminsits are the ones responsible for rape culture!

sit11Yeah, I think we heard this one about the light bulbs already.

sit10Feminsits will use rape and abuse to silence you, whatever that means!

sit8

Feminsits are kind of like One Direction fans in their terribleness!

sit7

Wait but it’s not even a real word!

sit6

Feminsits think that children should be cared for!

sit4

The real goal of the feminsit movement is to walk around topless!

sit3

Feminsits have a slogan!

sit1

But shouldnt that be “FAT UGLY FEMINSITS UNTIE?”

Damn, you anti-feminsits are really worked up about this lightbulb thing, huh?

sit20

Wait, there are “femonists” out there as well?

Damn, these femonists sound as bad as the feminsits!

Correction: Even worse!

We already knew the cats were on our side.

They are? I always got the impression from my cat that he’s above all those human problems. The only things that really matter is that he gets ear scratches when he demands them and fed on the schedule he’s established.

Well, they fixed it now, so decent enough I guess 🙂

My daughter and I lived at my mom’s home, in exchange for all the food that was no longer frozen.

Bummer! I’m glad that things are looking up now. I complain a lot when my electricity goes off for just a few hours. Wishing you many, many years of electricity at the flick of a switch.

What Was I Smoking?

I misunderstood this article at first and thought that the tweeters were responding to a sarcastic hashtag called #Feminsits.

I thought that they were feminists being funny.

The evidence? The first tweet is from 75% Ironic, who says “Feminsits just want to make being a man a crime.” Over the top!

Robbie James talks about feminsits’ “spite” toward and “envy” of slim women in a bikini. Nonsensical!

Two tweeters have the same feminsits-who-can’t-change-a-lightbulb joke. Clearly ironic!

I admit, I was pretty surprised that a fair number of them appeared to be men.

Then I saw Dean Esmay’s tweet, and my bubble burst.

Lesson learned: You can’t satirize MRAs’ tweets because they satirize themselves so well that there’s nothing left for smartypants feminists to satirize.

(Apologies to any triangle players out there, I know you get made fun of almost as much as the violas do.)

As a viola player, may I take this opportunity to say that you’re all monsters? 😛

Buttercup-

“It’s also pretty common, on the right, to demonize enemies by misspelling the name of their group or organization. It’s partly contemptuous disrespect, and partly being unable to form the word “feminist” because it pains their fingers to type it. It’s an emotionally loaded word for them. I’d be surprised if dyslexia or ESL were common contributing factors in this group of tweets. People who can spell “skyscraper”, “accidental”, and “confronting” ought to be able to spell “feminist”.”

I agree that it is most likely deliberate. It seems too common of a misspelling to be purely accidental. Also, as you pointed out, they have spelt equally challenging words correctly, so why weren’t they able to spell ‘feminist’? It is also the sort of mistake that would be picked up by spell checker. Perhaps at first it was accidental, but maybe that spelling has caught on?

A peace offering: I did the Fauré requiem recently. With the correct proportion of violas to violins. Or, should I say, vio-lin. There was only one, doing the solo bits.

It was divine! We love you, really.

@ scaly & EJ

An orchestra is about to perform when it tranpsires the conductor is ill. The lead violinist steps up to the plate and the performance goes ahead.

The following night the conductor is well again so the lead violinist returns to his place .

His fellow violinist turns to him and says: Where were you last night?”

I don’t think it’s deliberate. I think it’s a natural consequence of rage-typing, and of course some words are just easily misspelled using keyboards.

I didn’t know the Fauré requiem until now, and it’s awesome, so thank you! You may henceforth be considered Righteous Amongst the Violinists.

I am honoured! And chuffed to introduce a newcomer to the Fauré – In Paradisum appears in a lot of films, tv etc. it’s ethereal!

@Alan

I hope you have children because, if not, you just incurred the wrath of the Sacred and Arcane Order of Jocular Fathers!

Every time I try to type “brother”, I have to correct it, because my fingers type “bother”…which perfectly describes my male siblings when we were children…

Bonelady sez:

I have […] built sheds

I did that once with my sister. It sucked because it was in the middle of a cold, rainy field and we had no power tools. At least most of the materials were pre-cut. Still, we had to assemble and nail/screw it all together from the horrible instructions and then learn to install a proper asphalt shingle roof on the fly. (By that time it wasn’t just raining, it was also getting dark.)

Not an experience I’d care to repeat, but if I had the right power tools, it’d be no big deal. So when I hear dudes sounding put upon for having to assemble something small but then find out they have power tools? I want to punch them in the throat with a manual screwdriver. Fucking babies.

cointelpro sez:

that shit about the “work them in mines and see how they like it” is so tedious. patriarchy is what kept women out of the mines.

Yeah, women always had nice, cushy jobs like painting radium onto watch dials.

This is also why it’s convenient for so many of them to be racists, too. Because if you see black women as equal to whites, for instance, you might have to admit that some women’s gender never shielded them from being expected to do constant, back-breaking labor.

Shouldn’t we strive to be Humanists and not just feminsits?

No! Obviously we should strive to be Humansits! Or maybe Humonists!! Or, best of all, Humonsits!!!

For example, take my wife ….. Please!

I kill!!!!!

Oooh! I got to do it (as an alto/soprano vocalist in the chorus) years ago when I was still going to church and we had the awesomest of music directors. So beautiful. And I’ve always loved singing in Latin for some reason.

We actually did it twice; once with other churches/choirs and full orchestra, and once with just music director playing organ and her three daughters playing violin, viola and bass. The second time was magic and I think it was because those girls had been playing together their whole lives; no one of them ever overpowered any of the others.

I actually adore the viola. But you have to admit the jokes are pretty good.

@Hambeast

Latin is a great language for singing because of all the lovely vowels. But it could also be because so much choral music is written in Latin that it feels most familiar.

@ rabid rabbit: Agreed. Also, way too much choral music has been translated from Latin to English and is awkward to sing! 🙁
