    Feminists Are Tweeting Stunning Selfies In Response To The #FeministsAreUgly Hashtag

    The internet can be a phenomenal place.

    When feminist @LilyBolourian tweeted her selfie with the satirical hashtag #FeministsAreUgly, she aimed to start a movement.

    #FeministsAreUgly #WhyWouldIBeJealousOfYou

    Soon @cheuya joined in, tweeting her selfie with the hashtag to help dispel all bored stereotypes about feminists being "humourless" and "ugly".

    A movement that urged that women needn't conform to Western standards of beauty to be lovely.

    And they briefly made Twitter a wonderful, beautiful, feminist place.

    Look at this bandana-wearing threat to patriarchy.

    Here's a drop-dead gorgeous mocker of misogyny.

    The #FeministsAreUgly tag started by misogynists has backfired coz now they have to look at all us ugly feminists :(
