      I think the piece was supposed to be satire, actually making fun of how people overreact.

        I vaguely remember Shining Time Station being accused of conservative bias in the past, though I wonder how much of that was blowback from people like Andy Schlafly going full out against Sesame Street as being liberal.

          Considering how some of them behave it is getting increasingly difficult to tell.

              Eh, I don't think so. There was a similar piece by another feminist a little while back arguing that Princess Celestia's horn in My Little Pony was a phallic symbol, and represented male dominance.....also that, because Celestia is white, she represented white dominance over all other races. They just seem like a parody because of how inconceivably insane they are.

                    The Pillsbury dough boy is obviously a racial stereotype. He is white, well fed and laughs at everything. Just like a Nazi!

                        I swear, you can't parody these people.

                          Heh.

                          Heh.

                          How.

                          Honestly sometimes I think feminists are all super smart, and they're just laughing at us while they troll the heck out of us. And maybe all this feminist propaganda is just code talk for something only super smart people can even understand. I honestly hope that's what's going on.

                              Poe's Law seems more applicable to feminism than fundamentalism. Fake Christianity is not all that hard to spot.
