Everyday Feminism is a website that has bought me a lot of joy. I mean, a lot of join. Whenever I’m down, I simply need to head to that site, and enjoy the amazing satire it provides, every single day.
However, many people don’t understand that Everyday Feminism IS satire! In order to make the satire realistic, they often use the odd buzzwords of the left, and sometimes their punchlines aren’t very evident. So, as a service to your happiness, I’m going to explain some of these buzzwords, so you can understand the satire that could not have come from a feminist, because feminists never smile.
The first thing we’re going to decode is that ever-loved phrase ‘White Patriarchy’. The White Patriarchy is the easiest to explain. In the simplest of terms, it refers to any society built by Caucasian Males. It’s often used on the site to point out the absurdity of blaming the consequences of your decisions on the world.
The second term we want to tackle is ‘Intersectionality’ or ‘Intersectional’. A person or thing that’s described as Intersectional is a thing that belongs to several different victim groups. For example, a black man who is missing a leg is intersectional because he is oppressed because of his skin color and his handicap. Intersectionality allows you a certain amount of Social Justice Privilege, a privilege meant to combat the effect of the Patriarchy.
Now, by this point, I’m sure you’re laughing hysterically as you remember the jokes of Everyday Feminism, but we still have one more term.
The last term we’re going to define is ‘Cultural Appropriation’. This is when something from one culture, tortillas for example, are absorbed from one culture into another. This is obviously a demonization of America’s Melting Pot for comedic effect. The idea that one culture emulating the other is somehow something other than a compliment is clearly hilarious!
In conclusion, I’m going to give you the link to Everyday Feminism. Hopefully, you’ll laugh as much as I do. Every. Single. Day.
