They say feminists don’t have a sense of humor. “They” are known to be a very vocal group that says a lot of things like “curiosity killed a cat,” “time heals all wounds,” or “don’t count all your eggs in one basket before they hatch.” Well, I for one aim to reclaim the title of feminist buzzkill. I embrace it with all my unfynny being. I delight in giving dudebros the deadpan, concerned furrowed eyebrow, or the death glare.
Here some examples for those who want some help becoming a feminist buzzkill:
1. Playing Spikeball at a party.
Dudebro: I smacked that ball like Chris Brown did Rihanna.
Me: That’s not funny. [Pause]. Violence against women is never funny.
