The Sexist #HowToSpotAFeminist Hashtag Has Been Reclaimed (And It's Superb)

A sexist hashtag which was originally intended to mock feminists has been ironically reclaimed by them on the internet - and it's the best thing ever.

#HowToSpotAFeminist was created by radio host Doc Thompson and immediately generated a very negative, anti-feminist response on Twitter, with many jumping at the chance to tweet about how feminists are "fat" and "ugly".

Or have facial hair.

But, not letting the haters win, feminists everywhere have joined Avengers-style to jump on the hashtag and reclaim it in a positive and, quite frankly, rather glorious way.

This is why we love the internet.
