Oops I Made A Feminist Joke On The Internet
Sara Schaefer

I was going to post an apology on behalf of my gender but decided, “you know what, I’m tired of apologizing on behalf of the members of my gender whose collective IQ is a smaller number than the Airspeed Velocity of an Unladen Swallow, African or European, makes no difference. I didn’t post those things and I am not going to take responsibility for them any longer.”

In my life, I’ve done the “actually” thing, been a mansplainer, and an occasional troll in my past. I am not proud of that fact and I’m trying to correct my behavior. I’ve been told a few times to try harder, lol. I will keep trying to remember that my being a White, Middle-aged, Heterosexual Male does NOT equip me to solve everyone’s problems and it does NOT grant me supernatural abilities to know another persons mind and heart. It also does NOT give me any special ability to know how other people experience life allowing me to ignore what they say in favor of what I think I know.

So, instead of apologizing, I wanted to say I found the original picture funny and said to myself, “Yep, that is pretty close to complete, except for leaving of responding to all the questions about family and relationships, and that would have probably been over the top anyway”

Being funny is HARD and as someone who tries and FAILS often, I can attest to that fact as undeniable.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
