5 Ways To Feminist Without The Lecture

Everyone is tired of being shouted or lectured at. Give them what they really want: alcohol and games!

1. REALITY MONOPOLY

Next time you drag Monopoly out from the bottom of the game cupboard, place a wage gap on one of the pieces! Deduct about 20%, unless you really feel like making a point, in which case, you can go for the full 40% for black women. I guarantee there will be double the fighting fun!

2. I SPY

Each time you come across an unnecessarily gendered product, snap a pic and share it with friends! Make it more competitive by starting up a point system. But don’t laugh, ladies! Man-sized tissues are no joking matter.

3. WOULD YOU RATHER

This classic game gets even better when spun with women’s choices. Would you rather be Elle Woods pre-break up or Margaret Tate pre-proposal? Would you rather be stalked by Steve Bannon or Kanye West? Would you rather let Mike Pence pick your reproductive rights or be locked alone in a room with Donald Trump?

4. DRINKING GAME

Feminism includes drinking now? Yes, no more excuses. You know what else it needs to include? Black women, hispanic women, asian women, islamic women, transgender women, cis women, intersex, lesbians, bisexuals, men, etc., etc. So, pick a movie or a TV show and drink to all the lines, phrases, and settings that are remotely stereotypical or anti-feminist. Watch out, Mad Men could be deadly.

5. DAMSEL IN DISTRESS

Call your brother, your papa, your auntie (or whoever just doesn’t quite get the feminist thing) every time you find yourself walking home alone at night. Explain that you’re nervous (or insert another female stereotype here), and continue on to talk and catch up. Is it 3AM on a Saturday night? Can’t you phone someone else? Are these calls an inconvenience? Well, welcome to the limitations of womanhood.
