#TellAFeministThankYou fends off a manosphere manvasion!

Kittens composing feminist tweets.

Kittens composing feminist tweets.

The twitter hashtag wars continue! Apparently still pissed off that feminists pooped on their #INeedMasculismBecause tag the other day, the dudes of the manosphere launched a little counterattack aimed at #TellAFeministThankYou, a hashtag originally started by Melissa McEwan of Shakesville to give an opportunity to feminists to thank other feminists for, you know, being awesome and stuff.

On Chateau Heartiste, the Heartiste formerly known as Roissy charged up the troops for the campaign.

[T]he #TellAFeministThankYou Twitter feed has morphed into a shooting gallery for the entertainment of trolls and assorted sadists, providing a laugh a second. Feminists on that feed have been reduced to impotently bleating “wait for them to get it out of their systems.”

Go for the fun, stay for the cruelty. And keep an eye out for malevolent forces committing drive-bys of spectacular carnage. The kind of carnage that can leave a feminist with barely enough strength to mewl for the sympathies and circle-wagoning of fellow travelers.

There was just one problem: The PUAs and MRAs and other assorted Red Pill tweeters forgot to have a sense of humor.

Heartiste tried his best to generate some hilarity with a few tweets of his own.


Such magnificent wit!

Evidently feeling he needed to kick it up a notch, he decided to add some sprinkles of racism:


See, cuz only guys with names like “Juan” and “Anfernee” (hint, hint, hint) harass women on the street!

Here are some contributions from some other Red Pill wits, which evidently were highly amusing to the dudes in the RedPill Subreddit:


And a couple of others I found on my own:


There were even a few directed at little old me, like this one from our friend Chuck at Gucci Little Piggy:


You’re welcome!

Flawless victory, guys!

Oh, and here are some more kitties, since they seem to annoy manosphere dudes so much.


About David Futrelle

I run the blog We Hunted the Mammoth, which tracks (and mocks) online misogyny. My writing has appeared in a wide variety of places, including Salon, Time.com, the Washington Post, the New York Times Book Review and Money magazine. I like cats.

  1. LOL yes, I always remember the youthful Martin Clunes in that story (Snakedance?). He turned up in an episode of Morse I saw recently, too. Can’t be bothered with him in Doc Martin, the character’s such a jerk.

    It’s the shape of his lips that I recognized. I haven’t seen Snakedance in a while. It was available from Netflix ahead of Kinda, and I thought I ought to show my beloved Kinda first, or she’d be lost in Snakedance. We’ve been watching Classic Who, getting a lot out of our Netflix account.

    Doc Martin’s family are bigger jerks. His dad was played by a guy who was in an earlier episode of Doctor Who (playing the Marshall in “The Armageddon Factor”).

    I recognize British actors mostly by who’s been in Who. I was delighted to see Geoffrey Palmer in a cameo in New Who.

  2. Also, “small seaside village entirely inhabited by eccentrics and amusing peasants” is approaching a cliche in British media. There’s at least one Dalziel & Pascoe novel set in a SSVEIBE&AP.

    oooooh I didn’t even mention D&P. Sadly, there will never be any more of them😦 I think Reginald Hill wrote women well, but most D&P plots are murder mysteries and women come in for getting murdered, so TW for violence and/or violence against women. He also wrote as Charles Underhill. Stay away from his Captain Fantom books (he was surprised that a murderer, liar, coward and rapist like Fantom was so popular. Lord knows why he chose to write the first book, but his editor asked for a second, which he supplied).

  3. Ha! Read a Neil Gaiman short story recently. He mixed SSVEIBE&AP with Cthuluian horror. Great fun!

  4. For 50’s sf, check out C.L. Moore. Her stuff is really hard to find, but she wrote both SF and fantasy short stories. The imagery is incredible, the prose is fairly purple, and although the characters are a bit cliched, the women in her stories are intriguingly powerful and empowered.

    Of course, she had to go by her initials when she was published (starting in 1934), because ladies didn’t write that stuff…

  5. Well, Innsmouth was a SSV, but I haven’t read the story so I don’t know how full it is of amusing peasants. Eccentrics I’m sure it has by the bucket.

  6. @Falconer

    The denizens of Innsmouth were less amusing peasants and more sullen, inbred, and insular. Basically, like the small rural town in Pennsylvania where I lived for a few years (no, not really…just some parts of it).

    So, amusing depending on your definition. Lovecraft’s eccentrics are usually the protagonist or the friend of the protagonist.

  7. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    @Falconer – yeah, Martin Clunes’s mouth is rather memorable! He’s sort of the opposite of Ken Branagh who has no lips. Kinda was the show I was thinking of, I don’t think he was in Snakedance, was he?

    Whenever Mum and I watch British telly we settle down to count the TAFFs – That’s A Familiar Face. Half of ’em we don’t even know the actor’s name, just remember them from the Bill, Morse, Lewis, D&P (loved the earlier series of that but yeah, the thing that puts me off most crime shows now is that they’re so often about women being murdered), Hamish MacBeth, Taggart, New Tricks, Foyle’s War, etc, etc, etc … And of course EVERYONE in England turns up in Midsomer Murders eventually. Thing I like about that show: you know from the start at least one likely murder victim, because they will be a complete and utter arsehole.

    Mind you they slacked off a bit the other night. Nobody who gets rammed in the chest with a tree trunk is going to just have a few drops of blood coming out of their mouth afterward.

    Geoffrey Palmer is wonderful. Loved him in As Time Goes By. Total contrast in the character he played in one episode of Lewis – reeeeeally nasty and eventually done in by his wife (Barbara Leigh-Hunt, who played Lady Catherine de Bourgh in the series of P&P). Oh, P&P trivia I just found: Anna Chancellor, who played Caroline Bingley in the series, is Jane Austen’s eighth-generation niece.🙂

  8. it’s so funny how these “people” think they’re doing something against feminism.

  9. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    On the TV topic – any Aussies watching the Dr Blake Mysteries? I am, and enjoying it very much.

  10. @Kittehs’

    Nope, Clunes was in Snakedance, not Kinda. Those lips! And the earring!

    I have an entire bookcase that is nothing but Doctor Who books. If it wasn’t for e-books, it would be two bookcases. It’s really kind of sad how much of my brain is devoted to that show…

    Geoffrey Palmer is just lovely. He was wonderful ages ago in Butterflies, as well.

    I just spotted Dr Blake Mysteries on a…ahem…sharing community the other day and was thinking about checking it out! I’ll have to go see if it’s still available.

  11. asdfghjkl IMDB says Martin Clunes is ‘Barmy’ Fotheringay-Phipps on Jeeves & Wooster?!!

    … My actor-spotting skills are weak.

  12. How did you guys get onto the vampire subject here?🙂

  13. I think that started back at Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files series, where vampires play a big part? (as bad guys, not-so-bad guys and unys oebguref. (mild spoiler for an early book)

  14. @Joanna – if you’re still around, I apologize for jumping on you like that. I was having RL issues and took it out on you, which was not fair.

    On the Nook vs. Kindle thing, I bought a Google Nexus 7 when they came out and I’m very pleased with it. It runs on the Android OS so there are a lot of options for apps and such, it’s got good graphics and so on. I have the Kindle app installed, and some other e-readers for other types of e-books. It’s worth a look if you’re hunting for tablets (although I think they’re up to the Nexus 10 now).
