The hardships of being a woman have been documented since the dawn of the world. It's always a damsel in distress taking care of her husband, children, household, all the while looking after herself to comply with the beauty standards of the age. The many worries stacked on top of her fragile shoulders cannot compare in their severeness though to the general sexism beliefs about women and their bodies, to this day making it seem as though us ladies, do not own our bodies, but rather are here for men's entertainment.

Now, feminism and feminist views are not something that we usually associate with funny memes and jokes, but humor is often the best medium to convey cold hard facts and the ugly truth.

There are plenty of tweets about feminism that are so funny, even the manliest men laugh at them. But the online world expands way beyond Twitter, so Bored Panda has decided to gather some of the best feminist and sexist memes from all over the internet. Pregnancy struggles, anti-harassment clothes, this list features it all, and then some more of these funny jokes. Even Simone de Beauvoir would be laughing at these sexism examples. Scroll down to check it out and upvote the best memes by these brave and funny women.

don't get the smile thing. Must be a weird american thing. Nobody asks me to smile. Must be from a country in which is it appropriate to call another man "son" just because he's younger.

I always like the ones that say "You should smile. You're much prettier when you smile." I respond with "And your much more tolerable when you're not speaking...." Oh wait! Now that made me smile.....

I hate it when people try to tell others "aw, but you'd look so much prettier if you smiled!" Like, cool story, Karen/Steve, but guess what? I've had a rough day and I'm not in a great mood, so I hardly give a damn if I look 'pretty' or not, right now.

Literally, I was walking out of the store and I give a general nod or half smile to people I walk by... but some guy was like "oh that's not good enough, give me a real smile" my sister jumped out the car so quick! Lol I just ignored him.

You could also say "because I don't owe you anything." Why do people think they can tel others to smile.

Cringe Crew
Community Member

I never say, why don't you smile? I usually ask why are you down, usually because I can tell the facial expressions of people and can tell when they are sad, then I try and cheer them up, if it doesn't work, I leave them alone, like a nice person, like a person should, I don't harrass, i don't cat call, and I don't sexually abuse women or other people, this site is a perfect representation of the stereotypes of men actually.

hmm im a girl and i dont understand this, to me it sounds like an awkward conversation opening, and only gross if comes from a gross person's mouth (which anything he/she says would turn gross anyways)..... So why is this sexist again? If you're in bad mood you probably would find it as annoying as "You're beautiful, can we talk?" , and if you're in normal/happy mood, wouldn't you just find it awkward? Like, the person is trying to strike a flirty conversation and failed miserably, but probably didn't mean anything like "you're a woman, you should smile when you see me" ... or maybe because i dont live in US so I've never found people forcing me to smile to them.

Telling a stranger what to do is not a compliment, it's rude. You have no idea what is going on with them, what kind of day they're having.

So sex is a reward for not being openly sexist? This is probably as anti-feministic as is gets...
