I’m a third-wave feminist so that makes me…


Inspired by an article on Stuff  I have decided to gauge what New Zealanders think about Third Wave Feminist culture in a tongue and cheek move to try to change people’s perceptions.

Please finish the following sentence in the comments. The one with most upvotes wins.

Feel free to be negative, positive, and also humorous. I do ask that you refrain from being crude or plain nasty.

    That makes me entitled to walk around in my underwear and accuse the western world of rape culture while completely ignoring women’s rights in the Middle East cos racism!

  • RightofSingapore

    I’m a third wave feminist so that makes me not give a crap about men.
    I’m a third wave feminist so that makes me define feminism as a narrow set of Left wing views.
    I’m a third wave feminist so that makes me uppity, humorless and overlysensitive.

    I’m a third wave feminist so that makes me blind to the real problems in the world (e.g. Islam).

    I’m a third wave feminist so that makes me go around and make “victims” of everyone.

    I’m a third wave feminist so that makes me do everything that I can to destroy virtues like self-reliance and self-responsibility. I want to make people dependent on “the government”. I want to absolve “victims” of responsibility, instead putting blame on others.

    I’m a third wave feminist so that makes me think that socialism works – just like the first two waves thought it did.

    How dare you even ask that question, “what does it make me?”, it doesn’t make me anything! I will be whatever I decide to be. Most of all, I hate you stereotyping me by my gender, race and sexual orientation, you white middle class heterosexual male pig!

    • Rick H

      I’m a third wave feminist so that makes me act just like Quarma did.

    • Boondecker

      How dare you refer to me as a “white middle class male pig!” That’s unfair on white middle class male pigs everywhere.

    The last picture/text was like a slap in the face. I had never thought of it like that before. Interesting perspective.

  • The Accountant

    I’m a third wave feminist so I am sowing the seeds of my own destruction.

  • spanishbride

    I’m a third wave feminist so my being really fat is empowering and rebellious. You are the one with the problem not me, how dare you not find me attractive because of your bigotry.

  • KatB

    I’m a third wave feminist so I believe in empowering woman. I’m so empowered that I go around and shame and attack other women who don’t share my beliefs. Oh, I didn’t mean empowerment for ALL women.

  • Duchess of Pork

    I’m a third wave feminist so that makes me entitled to taxpayer funded abortion on demand. But I weep when I read of innocent women and children killed by US airstrikes in Syria.

    • KatB

      And also after having a few abortions, attack anybody for wearing fur.

  • Nermal

    I’m a third wave feminist because I hate myself, but don’t have the courage to change, so need someone else to blame.

  • Nechtan

    I’m a third wave feminist: women already have equal rights and I have no cause to fight so I’ll embrace any other politically correct (as determined by me) cause.

  • Kevin

    I’m a third wave feminist so that makes me someone who doesn’t have to take responsibility for getting wasted and waking up next to some stranger. Instead I can just cry rape and say my drink was spiked.

  • AF

    I’m a third wave feminist so that makes me eligible for a disability benefit.

  • AF

    SB : what you haven’t directly addressed is the sheer arrogance in the stuff article with this statement “to try to change people’s perceptions”. Since when did the perceptions need changing? Whose perception is correct?
