This season has been unofficially dubbed The Summer of Death, and unfortunately this past week was no exception. As pop culture loving feminists, we are all saddened by the passings of Patrick Swayze, Mary Travers, and Henry Gibson, to name only a few. We all grieve in different ways, to be sure, but a couple of LOL tributez never hurt anybody. In order to ease our collective pain, we bring you the I Can Has Feminizm? R.I.P. Edition.
Well, it's the weekend again, and nothing is better on a Sunday afternoon than kicking back with a cup of coffee and laughing at photos of animals that have been captioned in LOLspeak. Amirite? So sit back, relax, and let the LOLz roll.
Hold on to your hats feminizts, because I Can Has Feminizm? is back! I may have let a few LOLz haters get in the way of my providing animal-and-feminism-based laughs these past few weeks, but no more! LOLz are back by popular demand and the first one this weekend comes to us from a Bitch reader and her, well, bitch. Check it out:
How cute! And it's nice to see that the Consumed Issue is a hit with the canine set.
Our next kitteh is responding to the Grrrl on Film post from earlier this week about Disney's purchase of Marvel comics and what that might mean for girls who are hoping for a woman superhero to make it to the big screen one of these days:
We're right there with you, cat friend! Do you think she's got her paws crossed for a silver screen adaptation of Kitty Pryde or what?
And just in case you forgot that gender norms can affect our animal friends as well as us humans:
Srsly, look at that girl forcing her cat to wear a pink apron! It's like The Feminine Mystique was never even published or something.
Have a good weekend everyone, and enjoy the LOLz! Don't forget that you can make your own feminizt LOLz by visiting the I Can Has Cheezburger? LOLbuilder and sending your creations to us here.
Simple Minds' "Don't You Forget About Me" could be heard 'round the world this week, commemorating the untimely death of writer/director/producer John Hughes, whose films shaped many a feminist mind during the 1980s (Molly Ringwald was one sassy teen, after all). Well don't worry John Hughes, we won't forget about you, and to prove it, this installment of feminizt LOLz was created in your honor.
If you've got some feminizt LOLz lying around to send us, or if you want to make a few, you can do just that by visiting the I Can Has Cheezburger LOL builder and sending your creations to us here. Now go watch some John Hughes movies, and have a great weekend.
It's the weekend again, and while in some cultures that might mean a well deserved break from work and an afternoon of drinking beer on the porch, here at the Bitch blog it means FEMINIZT LOLz! (You know you love 'em.)
And this bitch has been catcalled dogcalled one too many times this summer:
Have a great weekend, feminizts! And as always, we lovez it wen u makez ur own feminizt lolz. You can do just that by visiting the I Can Has Cheezburger LOL builder and sending your creations to us here. kthxbai!
Happy weekend! Happy Feminsit LOLz! At the Bitch Office we're in the final throes of preparing our much-anticipated fall issue! We're totally stoked about the new layout and think you will be too! We know this guy is:
As you may have seen in Nicole J. Georges' tributes to gay animals, we are learning that gender in the animal kingdom is just as fluid for cats, dogs, giraffes, birds, and monkeys as it is for us humans. Why is it, then, that we still encourage animals (humans included) to conform to antiquated gender roles? Some members of the animal kingdom have had enough of this, like this doggeh who is sick of being dressed like a princess:
And this kitteh is having the opposite problem. Poor lil' guy just wants to dress like a princess!
Here is yet another member of the animal kingdom who is choosing to express her nontraditional gender.
Happy Fourth of July, feminists! To commemorate our nation's independence, here is a reminder that we can all wear our American flags and our feminism on our sleeves when we're out and about today:
You said it, sister. As always, thanks to all of everyone who has been sending us hilarious LOLz! Do you have an idea for a feminizt LOL? Make your own by visiting I Can Has Cheezburger and send 'em to us here. Have a great, firework-and-BBQ-filled weekend, and happy LOL-ing!
Is there a better way to spend a summer weekend than by kicking back with a good book? This week's feminizt LOLz don't think so!
These two kittehs recommend Sisterhood is Powerful by Robin Morgan. An anthology of writings from the women's liberation movement, it's a must-read for any feminist bookworm (bookkitteh?).
When Virgina Woolf said that in order to be creative, women need their own space and income, she might not have been talking about these puppehs directly, but they still think you should readA Room of One's Own.
Yeah, reading about feminist history is fun and all, but some of us like our summer reads a little sexier. This kitteh is enjoying her copy of Betty Dodson's Sex for One, and she thinks you'd like it too!
As always, thanks to all of everyone who has been sending us hilarious LOLz! Do you have an idea for a feminizt LOL? Make your own by visiting I Can Has Cheezburger and send 'em to us here. Have a great, book-filled weekend, and happy LOL-ing!
