Sexism and misogyny have seeped into every nook and cranny of our daily existence. People who are not cis-straight men, in general, have been at the receiving end of an offhand comment or an ignorant remark almost every single day. There is only so much energy one can spare for expressing anger. It gets tiring. Channeling this frustration into wit and sarcasm has been one way of handling everyday sexism. Feminists have been using humor to make a point while also clapping back at the people who have bad takes on how other people should live their lives. Not to mention the free lessons they have to give ignorant people at their own expense.

Here are some funny retorts feminists have as they try to navigate a world where a critique on patriarchy will attract internet strangers, who definitely fit the description of the criticism, to yell "not all men" at them.
