This Feminist Twist On "The Princess Bride" Will Give You Life

    Gender equality? As you wish...

    Canadian writer Anne Thériault recently took to Twitter to vent her frustration over Time magazine including the word "feminist" in a poll on words that should be banned.

    Having @time include feminist on their words to ban list makes me want to say it even more, like a petulant child. Feminist, FEMINIST.

    And her reference to The Princess Bride created something beautiful.

    Like in the Princess Bride when Miracle Max's wife chases him around yelling, "Humperdink, Humperdink, Humperdiiiiiiiink."

    People quickly responded with feminist twists on classic The Princess Bride quotes.

    @anne_theriault "You mock my feminism!" "Life is feminism, Highness. Anyone who says differently is selling you something." That... worked.

    And #FeministPrincessBride was born.

    You fell victim to one of the classic blunders - Never go in against a Feminist when equal rights are on the line! #feministprincessbride

    @anne_theriault No more sexism, and I mean it! Anybody want a peanut? #feministprincessbride

    The already-wonderful quotes were made even better with a feminist slant.

    @anne_theriault Feminism is Equality. Anyone who says different is trying to sell you something. #FeministPrincessBride
