Urban Dictionary is hilariously offensive

by Chloe Angyal

I just had my day either made or ruined - I can't decide - by this little gem from UrbanDictionary.com:

FEMTARD
A combination of the words "feminist" and "retard." All feminists are femtards, because feminism is the singular most ridiculous ideology to ever be contrived by the human mind (which is saying a lot since there are Jehovah's Witnesses out there!). Feminism is, at its very root, retarded, because (but not limited to):

1) Feminists harp on about equal rights while attempting to legislate superior rights for women.

2) Feminists maintain that women can do anything men can do and then get fire departments, local police, and the military to lower their standards so more women can be employed.

3) Feminists hold to such horrific fables as, "Women never lie about rape" (LACROSSE, anyone?).

4) Feminists maintain that men and women are the same, while noting that men are more violent than women, and women are more nurturing and cooperative than men. So in the feminist's doctrine, men and women are the same except for where women are better than men....

5) Feminists simultaneously maintain that women are strong enough to lead countries yet also maintain that when women do not get their way at home their husbands are being "controlling" and are guilty of "domestic violence."

6) Feminists maintain that women are strong enough to lead countries, yet need to be protected from bikini calendars in the workplace.

For all these reasons and a thousand others, all feminists are to hereby be referred to as "femtards."

Usage:
That judge just found that Joe was guilty of domestic violence because he threw a sock at that sow slut of a wife he has - judges are such femtards.

Oh man, haters are fun! And seriously misinformed (domestic violence in scare quotes? Seriously?). And offensive to pretty much everyone (leave the Jehovah's Witnesses alone!). But they do make for a hilarious study break.

Even though this is very uninformed, these steryotypes are based on people who taint the image of feminism. There should be an effort to dispel these ideas not because stupidity needs time spent on it, but because it can spread and hinder your work. As with any other type of steryotype based on people who are not indicative of an entire group, these ideas will influence people who don't get a chance to see what an even-keeled feminist looks like.
