Feminists have known for a long time that they were making a new Ghostbusters movie that has an all-women Ghostbusters team, but misogynists are just now freaking out about it. It's super hilarious. They're all "mweh mweh you're ruining my childhood and everything in the universe is about meeeee wahhhhhhhh."
"Stop making it about representation in media and how that affects children's self-esteem and the way people treat one another in general! Make it about me! Me me me me! Stop making it about you! Because me! This is about me! Everything is always about me, don't you know that! MEEEEEE."
So yeah, it's been a fun few days, what with all the opportunity to mock and torture these dudes. Make sure to remind them that Billy Murray helped to pick out the all-female cast and that Dan Aykroyd said that he's "delighted" by the very idea.
Or just send them this:
An all-female #Ghostbusters?! THAT'S UNFAIR!! What's next, an all-male gender equality panel at the UN?! Oh wait - http://t.co/hsrTQM10h8
