9 thoughts on “Feminist Theory Jokes?

  1. The one feminist joke I’ve heard is:

    “What do you call a feminist ?”


  2. The only unoffensive joke involving feminism that I know is:

    “How many feminists does it take to screw in a light bulb?”

    “One. [long serious pause] …why do you ask?”

    But I teach Feminist Theory and would love to hear some jokes that actually involve feminist theory.

  3. Excuse my sour mood:

    1. How could you give a feminist philosopher the surprise of her life?
    Put on a conference on her work.

    2. How do you know a feminist philosopher’s thought is finally mainstream?
    When it re-appears in the men’s work as their own.

  4. I thought the lightbulb joke was supposed to be like this:

    “How many feminists does it take to screw in a light bulb?”


  5. The punch line should be: 2, one to screw the bulb and one to get in the kitchen and bake me a pie!

  6. Another lightbulb joke… not as nice to us feminists.. nevertheless it made me laugh when I heard it

    Q: how many feminists does it take to change the lightbulb?

    A: It’s the lightbulb that needs to change.

  7. Well one of my friends told me this one (all in good humour of course).
    “Hey want to hear a joke?”
    “Women’s rights!’
    *cue canned audience laughter*
