Funny Feminist Feelings

A friend recently told me this joke. I found it really funny, if you don't. I don't care :)
You could call the joke sexist, but then again, you could call God(If he did exist) a misogynyst. Proof ? :

labor pain.

Here goes.

Joke: How many Feminists does it take to change a lightbulb ?
Answer: None, because feminists can't change anything.

Makes me laugh every single time.
'Why! you are a very crass, crude, dirty, and stupid young man' do I hear you say ?
Maybe, maybe, if it is true, then there is no point in denying it. It also does not change the fact that it is a funny joke.

So prompted by this, I decided to do a little research on this whole gender war thing. I never expected it to be so much fun. It is also the reason that my posts recently been more towards this topic.

Here is an advertisement for a department store, which Feminists claim is misogynistic, as far as I see, it maybe seen as sexist to either of the sexes, depending on your sympathies, here check it out because if you forget the whole sexism thing, it is a funny and clever little ad.


"What evidence do I have that women rule the world? Take a look at the world and ask yourself how it would be different if men were REALLY in charge. Look at the things that men want most, then check to see if the world is organized to provide those things or to limit them."

Scott Adams, The Dilbert Future, page 109
