"In How to Be a Woman, Moran also says, “I want to reclaim the phrase ‘strident feminist’ in the same way the hip-hop community has reclaimed the word ‘nigger.’” This is a baffling statement because there is simply no reality where the phrase “strident feminist” can be reasonably compared to the “N-word."

Roxane Gay takes on the racism in Caitlin Moran’s popular new book. Gay goes on, “I am fascinated by the silence surrounding this statement, how people will turn a blind eye to casual racism for the sake of funny feminism.” (via therumpus)
Caitlin Moran is about to have problems.
About to? She been having them.
This is what happens when feminists become obsessed with who calls themselves a feminist or not and whether feminism is dead. And yeah funny feminism makes me wanna puke! It doesn’t need to be commodified into something! Some feminists are some of the funniest people I know/have ever known.
Also these fuckers have nothing but analogies that don’t even make sense in the first place.

Catlin Moran is an idiot. Why is this new to everyone?
