This article was so funny I think it has to be satire. So I put it in the Funny Stuff section

She can't possibly be serious. Please tell me it's satire.

There are some crazy feminists out there.  One lady I recently encountered tried to convince me that "rape was normal for men"

I would love to believe that this is a joke, but with other articles like, "We Need To Stop Allowing Women To Go To The Gym [because all women are beautiful regardless]" and "Men Should Be Banned From The Military [because an army of men create fights, an army of women would never do such a thing]" have me believing otherwise...even her Twitter appears to keep "the act" going. Good lord...

The "All Men are rapists" and "everything Men do is rape" are common points among the radicals.

I think its satire, purely because I refuse to think anyone could think like that. Complaining because coding is based on "logic"instead of emotion etc. 

 

This stuff is comedy gold.

Both my mom and sister have android phones. I wonder if they know they are being repressed by rape-apologists?

Hilarious, but it isn't real. "Anne Gus" is actually a guy who writes satirical pieces making fun of feminists under that name.

It's hard to believe that article is real, however you never know these days!
 

I can name like every product Apple has ever made since like, ‘07. So yeah, I consider myself a bit of a techie.


Have a cookie?
 

Android makes me sick, I mean, how is this even allowed? Who approved that blatantly oppressive name and why isn’t the government doing anything about the android-gap between men and women? If that dumb little green robot could talk, I’m sure it would identify as a straight cisgendered male and he would probably be a rape-apologist.

 
Here was me thinking an android was a robot with a human appearance... Data on Star Trek for example.
 

It’s hard to leave the house these days without seeing Android-phone wielding douchebags walk around all high and mighty, making smug inside jokes about jellybeans and gingerbread (fatshaming?) and endlessly praising their open source platform. How about you stop with the closed source-shaming and espouse an open mind instead? Ever think about that?

Android is clearly designed to shut out strong independent women, the OS is too cluttered and unaesthetic to appeal to elegant and streamlined women.


What can you say to something like that?
 

If I see you with an Android your opinion is null and void.


I think she would get a job at Apple.

If it's satire then it really missed the mark.

Because satire is supposed to be an exaggeration of the subject and I've seen many feminists who are at this level of insanity or worse?

Very few feminists are that extreme.

The most vocal ones are, because Feminism in the West has an incredibly low amount of issues to complain about, so they go about trying to ban Urinals, get routes of transport apparently more used by Women cleared of snow first, banning Men from standing up to pee. 

 

In the states now they are making it so Women who commit crimes and get sent to prison are the "victims" and will be sent to friendlier prisons that are more like hostels, and may even be warded custody of their children inside prison over the Father.

Here is a nice collection of quotes by Feminist leaders

The purpose is to be a satire of Feminists who are like that, and at that I think it's very effective. So effective that people aren't sure if its satire or not.
