Although being a feminist is obviously badass, some people in the world inexplicably bag on feminism. And one of the barbs they routinely lob in our direction is that feminists lack a sense of humor. They think we’re too serious. Too sharp. But, c’mon, feminists are funny AF (yes, we’re aware that saying AF also makes us cheugy — we’re cool with it). Sure, we’re sharp. But we like to think that qualifier references our razor-sharp wit, which can be seen in all its glory when we’re zinging feminist jokes and other fun stuff. Not only does the following comedic fodder include things we, as feminists, find funny, it also includes poking a little fun at ourselves too. Because, really, where would we be without our sense of self-awareness and profound self-deprecation?
If you’re here, it’s because you also believe in advocating for the sexes’ political, economic, and social equality (aka feminism!). In which case, hi, welcome, let’s be friends. You’re also probably here because life can be stressful, and you need a quick injection of laughter. We’re here to help.
Keep reading for some clever, creative, and, yep, funny feminist jokes.
