Top 10 Original (well they think so, don’t they?) Sexist Responses to Real Women

By Emma Rosenthal

Having trouble coming up with witty responses to articulate feminist dialogue?

Not qualified to defend your man world to those bitches?

Not able to find anyone who can press your clothes, cook you dinner, laugh at your jokes, gaze at you adoringly and take your abuse?

Well, think no further. For no fee at all, we’ll provide you with the top 10 sexist insults to counter any qualified and articulate feminist:

1. Your (sic– don’t humor these bitches with good spelling!) just angry! (Mask your own anger with this one!)
2. You have no sense of humor! (Hide the fact that it’s YOUR joke no one thinks is funny!)
3. Your (sic–see 1) probably just a lesbo! (Because men like you make such an attractive alternative.)
4. I feel sorry for your husband!
5. you’re (see 1) poor husband! (Because YOU can’t imagine a relationship with anyone who might actually participate in a real dialogue!)
6. No wonder your (see 1, again) single! (Because someone like you would be such a wonderful option?)
7. You just need a good fuck! (As if you were qualified to provide!)
8. It’s probably THAT time of the month! (Ovulation?)
9. Bitch! (Resort to petty insults, because that’s always a good substitute for real argument.)
10. Cunt! (Now who has anger issues? huh, big boy?)
