10 Tumblr Feminists Hilariously Respond To That “Trends Guys Hate” Article

tumblr feminists rock

A few months ago, we responded to a viral Huffington Post article, “23 Trends Guys Hate (But Women Love)” with our own list: 10 Reasons Women Don’t Care If Men Like Their Clothes. The original article has started circulating again lately– and thank goodness for the Tumblr feminist community. Badass, socially conscious bloggers worldwide have started responding in hilarious ways. Here are some of the highlights.

1. Punkrockghoul took it upon herself to demonstrate how a real champion responds to stupid misogyny– by wearing as many of the “offending” trends as possible.

2. Annieleonhardt pretty much just tells it like it is. Straight up.

3. Then we have ssv-normandy providing a helpful list of “trends that turn women off” to help balance out the debate.

4. The delightful screaminfuschia rocks a handful of man-hated trends, as well. Looking good.

5. KayleeCommons puts misogynists in their place with this brilliant video. “Kaylee, what big sunglasses you have,” she says. “The better to block out the blinding bullshit, my dear.”

6. Then we have the awesome 1dsospref, who’s just had enough of your sexism crap. “If you do something and there is an article or a guy that says they don’t like it, put your middle finger high in the air and do what you want (as long as it’s not illegal or dangerous to others.)” Right on.

7. Another lovely lady who doesn’t give a crap if you like her style or not! Stridernostrifing rocks the flawless combo of high-waisted shorts and leggings.

8. Just-dewott looks hot and feminist (which are basically synonyms) in her neon colors and red lipstick, as per usual.

10. “Bright red lipstick: check,” says electric-fur.

In case you missed the message: uh, we don’t care if you like our clothes. We don’t care if you like our shoes, we don’t care if you like our makeup, we don’t care if you like our hair. Women don’t get dressed in the morning for the sole purpose of arousing you, just like your gym shorts, cargo pants, stained t-shirts, and lazy-ass baseball caps don’t get our blood pumpin’. Sorry, bros.

      Omg ! Love, love , LOVE kayleecommons , preach it girl!

    • Emily

      That article is also annoying because I know plenty of guys who actually like more than one of those things, like red lips and pointy-toed heels/flats. Not that it matters, but still…

      • Jason

        Also most of the clothes that they criticized was invented/made popular by male fashion designers haha.

    • Sexlovesounds

      What are you supposed to wear if you can’t wear those things?
      Also high heels and red lipstick? Really? Which men DON’T like those?

      • Kaitlin Reilly

        From what I read, men don’t like high heels because women “always complain” about their shoes. And red lipstick is intimidating because they’ll want to kiss you and then — gasp! — get red lipstick on them. It’s really the stupidest thing.

        Though as much as I love red lipstick I wouldn’t recommend wearing it if you are looking to kiss anyone. Or eat anything even remotely oily. Who wants to have to worry about touching it up?

      hey that’s me! :D

    • Alex The Girl

      I’m so glad that women would never judge the outfits of the opposite sex… we are way more evolved than that. I mean we don’t even judge each other. I bet there is not one list that exists today about how women dislike certain trends adopted by men over the years. How dare men share their thoughts… that is so misogynistic.

      • Princess Blaudeuwedd

        Oh yeah, girl schools are not seething hotbeds of backstabbing, spite, bitching, bullying, insults, rumour spreading and full of drama like girls bullying other girls into getting eating disorders, us girls are far more evolved then icky patriarchy boys who are smelly! *giggles* The world would be a far better place if women ran it: just ask Jiang Ching, Elizabeth Bathory, Sarah Palin, Margaret Thatcher, Iris Robinson, Myra Hinley, Maggie Gallagher, Eva Braun…

      • Jason

        I like how you’re fighting with this article by basically saying women are unfit to be in politics that’s great thanks for feeding into that sexism. I can’t tell if you’re brainwashed or posing as a woman. Also most countries that function under a republic or a democracy have had female prime ministers, you just live in one of the few countries that hasn’t.

      • FIFI

        Lets elect more female leaders! Let them legislate more hateful, discriminatory laws designed to destroy men and weaken our country even more! Even better, why don’t we just build public gas chambers and round up all the men.

      • Jason

        I actually just spent an hour trying to find an article like that and I couldn’t. Men can share their thoughts but it’s wrong to constantly police women over every last little thing they do and if you deny you don’t see that every day you’re blind.

      • FIFI

        Bull shit.

      • Jason

        lmao find me some examples then shrimp dick

      • FIFI

        Google “fashion mistakes women hate about men – rantlifestyle.” It took me approximately four seconds to find it as opposed to the hour you spent fucktard.

      In case you want a textbook definition of sexism, take a look at this article, and take a long look in the mirror.

      Who wrote that HuffPo article? Ellie Krupnick, a woman. Who do you direct your response to? Men. Why? Because Ellie Krupnick said something, and she’s a woman, so what she said must be true? Sexism, on your part. Because you believe a woman can override a man’s agency and speak for him? Sexism. Because she reinforced a stereotype in your mind about men? Still sexism. Because men are to blame for women’s poor self-esteem and body image? Ellie’s credentials include Seventeen and Women’s Wear Daily.

      Misogyny and sexism are not the byproducts of some innate genetic violent nature of men. They are not some ingrained social or cultural view men have of women. Misogyny and sexism directed at women are what happens when prejudices and stereotypes go unchecked and a man others a woman over some stupid, superficial difference.

      If you want to know why so many men practice that unchecked, without a second thought as to how they treat half of the human population they share a planet with, take a long, hard look at what caused you to respond to an article written by an individual woman and direct your critique not at that woman on the merits of her poor argument, but at men in general. Take a long, hard look at what prompted you to hold these women up as a bastion of feminism for lashing out at some generic gender boogeyman instead of telling Ellie Krupnick – and only Ellie – to shove it.

      Next time you ask yourself why some men view women as poorly as they do, treat women as poorly as they do, find whatever caused you to do this and you’ll have your answer, because I guarantee you whatever unchecked prejudice motivated this is the same unchecked prejudice that motivates them.

        I love when western feminists don’t see the irony of calling people whiners. You’re so deluded that it borders on adorable, if you weren’t such an unlikeable idiot I’d give you a hug.

      • Hannah

        Please take several seats, I’m pretty sure no women would want a hug from you.

      • Gauthier

        Also, MRA’s like you are the worst kind of man. You know why? because in a world where the female half of the population undeniably gets the shittiest end of the deal and faces all of the abuse on a spectrum ranging from catcalls on the streets to honor murders every day of their lives solely because of their gender, and are still treated unequally in matters of rights to their own bodies, salary, body image and objectification, rape culture, etc. and so forth, in numbers that boggle the mind, you STILL find the time to cry out in indignation and wallow in self-pity over the ‘injustices’ that befall you (which, by the way, are just as much to be blamed on the patriarchy as misogyny). And you seem to be putting quite some energy into that, too. Are you proud of yourself? Do you feel like a bigger man now? Does this make you feel validated in a way that compensates for how women don’t want anything to do with you because you’re one of those “unlovables”? Go back to commenting on /r/gonewild, you laughable buffoon.

      • Anders Nymoen

        You wanna talk about numbers? Lets talk some numbers: Last time I checked, ten times as many men than women are in prison. Suicide rates among men are about three times higher than women, and in conflicts around the world, the men are overwhelmingly suffering the casualties both as combatants and as targets of violence.

        Now shut up, middle class feminist brat. Just because you can conjure up some numbers about women, does not mean that women are in suffering like some holocaust victims.

      • Jason

        53% of Men in prison for murder are there for killing their mother’s batterers. Let that sink in.

      • Martine

        That is such bullshit. Who do you think gets drafted and fights on the front lines of the war? Men. Do you know how often men are raped in prison? Do you know how often men are raped outside of prison? Neither do I. Because its almost always unreported. Men earn more mostly because they more often choose to work more, take less sick days related to children, and don’t take maternity leave. If you check to see how much stay at home dads make you will find that it is far less then those who do not stay at home. Who ends up being discriminated against in custody hearings and divorce settlements? Men. Anyone that is being treated unfairly should be proud of themselves on calling it out. I think it makes him a bigger man. And all this over an article written by a woman.

      • Jason

        53% of men in prison for second degree murder are there for killing their mothers batterers. Let that sink in. Also the patriarchy is what tells you from a young age that you’re not aloud to express normal human emotion, the patriarchy tells you that you’re supposed to die on the front lines while women are too weak to. The patriarchy tells you you’re unfit to raise a child because that’s a woman’s job. The patriarchy forces gender roles on both of us that hurt and discriminate us. You’re fighting against a movement that won’t only end our inequality but yours as well. You’re right, only those who want to serve as soldiers should serve, which is why women should be more easily accepted into the army and not have to fear being raped by their fellow soldiers. Custody should be given to the best parent for the child, and it shouldn’t be assumed the mother always is.

      • FIFI

        Maybe a “Matriarchy” would serve us better. I’m sure no female president would ever force millions of men to die in battle, unless, of course precious feminist interests were threatened.

      • FIFI

        Absolutely. Matt speaks the truth, and its great to see men finally standing up for themselves after years of feminist bullying. Women in the Western world are not oppressed in any way. They have far more rights and privileges than men. Yet, when men try to stand up for their most basic human rights, assholes like “Gauthier” above, pull the feminist trump card and demean and guilt trip them by starting to scream all the tired old lies about “rape culture” and “patriarchy.” Guilt, degradation, and bigotry don’t work so well on men anymore, they are starting to rebel by the millions. Spoiled, whining, bigoted, supremacist feminist man haters – after years of biting the hand that feeds you, it’s finally starting to slap you down. Oh yes, and “Gauthier” I don’t know if you are a male, female, or something in between, but you are most certainly an asshole.

      • FIFI

        …..And yet another fucking mangina blathers feminist propaganda.

      • FIFI

        Beautiful. An article written for women. buy a woman – who as a member of the superior gender – feels she has the right to speak for all the men on the planet, and ten brainwashed feminist sheep direct still more hatred toward the male gender. Ellie and her ten feminist friends have certainly shown their intelligence and maturity.

    • Princess Blodeauwedd

      Ten tumblr feminists who are too stupid to realise that all of those articles are almost entirely made by women, and that GQ and Men’s Health are full of the exact same thing: women hate this, how to please your woman in bed, how to make women find you attractive, wear this it women find it sexy and put on that cologne women like the smell, don’t do that, women find it gross: often men’s magazines have a female journalist on tap to give a female perspective on what men should and shouldn’t do in dating in relationships.

      Honestly, I would love to send these whiny, spoiled, professionally offended middle class mewlers to Saudi Arabia: I bet none of them would last five minutes in a country where women are actually oppressed.

      • Tierney

        More oppression in one place does not cancel it out somewhere else. “Well they’re not doing honor killings, so we should be grateful”. Mysogyny by women is still mysogyny… You should know all about that. And men aren’t filtered through things like “male gaze”.

      • brookstyle

        so …who gets to be the most oppressed and win the contest?

      • Jason

        That’s not what they’re saying at all. They’re saying that just because a certain prejudice is worse in another country does not mean an oppressed group doesn’t deserve the rights they have. Let’s take a look at the eighties. The eighties, like today, had a huge problem with profiling Blacks for crimes they did not commit and shooting innocent unarmed Black people simply for “looking suspect” because of the color of their skin. In the eighties South African Blacks were forced under an apartheid, which is basically modern day slavery. Just because someone has it worse in another country does not mean that the prejudice still prevalent in your own isn’t bad you stupid fuck.

      • brookstyle

        Jason, you stupid fuck. It doesn’t cancel other forms of oppression. That is true. But maybe what you describe as oppression is not on par, you sf. Being catcalled in the streets of NY is not on par w/ being covered head to foot in cloth in Kabul in order to survive…you sf.

      • Jason

        At one point did I say that. At what point has anyone in feminism ever fucking said that they had it worse than people in other oppressed countries. You’re trying to tear down an argument I never even made because you know everything I actually did say is true. I never mentioned catcalling, and when I say women are oppressed what I’m talking about are wage gaps, domestic abuse, rape, and glass ceilings and unhealthy body expectations and policing for women in the United States. Never once did I say women have it worse than women in Saudi Arabia. Quit talking out of your ass and actually read my comment.

      • brookstyle

        I did read your comment. Unhealthy body expectations? How very oppressive.

      • Jason

        So you’re just gonna ignore that women in the United States have a huge problem with eating disorders like bulemia and anorexia to try and win this argument okay.

      • brookstyle

        yes. There is no “winning” an argument like this. buhbye

      • FIFI

        Wow , is Jason ever a huge fucking mangina.

      • Jason

        lmao bitch get an actual argument and maybe i’ll care about your basic ass

      • Jason

        you think misandry is real how far is your ugly fucking head shoved up your mishapen asshole

      • FIFI

        Can I touch your titty? XO

      • FIFI

        Your pussy’s showing Jason.

      • FIFI

        Wage gaps don’t exist – more man hater propaganda. Domestic abuse affects as many men as women, the feminists control the media so we don’t hear about that. Rape? If you were to believe feminist propaganda one out of two women will be “sexually assaulted in her life time. I asked over 500 coworkers, friends, clients, and aquaintances over the period of a year – none were ever sexually assaulted in any way. Glass ceilings don’t exist as women have far more rights in all areas of the work force than men think employment equity and affirmative action. Unhealthy body expectations come from women hating their own bodies because slim beautiful women tell them they are repulsive if they aren’t perfect. Yes we American women have it sooooo bad.

      • FIFI

        Oh my goodness yes! Women in India are stoned to death and have acid thrown in their faces. American women have it much worse though, crying about Barbie destroying the self image of five year old girls, and trying to have words like “feminazi” banned from the media. Go shave your pussy and put on your high heels Jason.

      • Martine

        I am also quite sure that a gay man or a woman wrote the article, and how is voicing an opinion wrong exactly? No one is forcing anyone to dress any way at all, or even read the article. It is not oppression to voice opinions.
        The poster above is completely right, it would do you a world of good to understand the difference between someone actually forcing you to dress a certain way, rather then making an article saying they prefer certain fashions to others. Saudi Arabia is one place you could learn this important difference.
        Your blindness offends me, and I am a woman who wears almost ALL of those trends. I only wear high rise jeans, dresses and shorts, love low/high skirts, and generally love pointy flats….but of course that doesn’t matter, right? Because in your eyes anyone that doesn’t agree with you doesn’t matter.

      • Andrea

        Even if a woman wrote the article, it still is wrong. Our response is to the article, not exactly towards men. And lols for calling the girls upper middle class whiners. I’m really poor and hispanic. But tbh, you lost me when you said, “let’s send them to Saudi Arabia.” What a stupid, ignorant comment.

    • Chuck

      Go to “yourtango”…they have a crap load of what women this of men who [fill in the blank]. Please show your outrage there…p.s., the authors are women. I know that makes a difference!

    • Hahahaha

      nine ass ugly girls who make up for the fact that no man worth a damn will never like them anyway by pretending they don’t care and are “not afraid to break the mold”

      All these stupid-ass men bitching and crying man-baby tears because some girls finally made their shit look stupid. And women who have tons of internalized misogyny, trying to distance themselves from people fighting for their rights. I know some of the people here, and they definitely aren’t whiny middle class mewlers.

    • Martine

      Except that MEN ARE NOT telling women how to look. First of all; NO WAY did a straight guy write that list. Men don’t know who iIabel Marant is, or what a Bourgeoise bohemian look is. A gay guy from the fashion industry wrote that, or a woman! Second of all; No one is forcing anyone to even look at the article. It is only going to be read by people who are interested in it. It is still Ok for people to voice opinions isn’t it? or is Big Brother watching?

    • Martine

      Um..and there are tons of articles telling men what styles women don’t like. Why is no one going crazy over that?

      • Jason

        Find me one then.

    • FIFI

      I’m laughing my ass off!! This was the funniest thing I have read in ages! I can just imagine these women twenty or thirty years from now, bitter, lonely old hags, five hundred pounds and growing, running out to the store for a couple gallons of rocky road and a box of Kleenex still blaming men for their fucked up lives. Grow up you stupid pathetic bitches.
