The Sexist Hashtag #HowToSpotAFeminist Has Totally Backfired & It's Brilliant!

by Laurence-Emmanuelle Bédard Published on May 6, 2015

When conservative radio host Doc Thompson created the hashtag #HowToSpotAFeminist he was unsurprisingly inundated with the stereotypical replies: fat, ugly man-haters who refuse to shave their beards. Original. But when feminists decided to chip in? That's when it all got very hilarious. Whad'ya know, we actually have a sense of humor!

Introducing Thompson AKA first class douche bag and inventor of the hateful #HowToSpotAFeminist hashtag now trending on Twitter.

He could be a lovely guy but then again he is looking for tips on how to spot a person that believes in the social, political and economic equality of the sexes assuming we're unrecognizable without beards and BO. Duh.

But rather give Doc the d*ck any more airtime we're rounding up the most inspirational and hilare Twitter replies that are fast turning this sexist campaign on its head. Hey, he made his bed and now... or wait, did a woman make it for him?

Lesson learned... don't mess pal.
