The Brothers Strike Back: 50 Tweets from #MeninistTwitter

#MeninistTwitter was a minor trend about six months ago that died a quick and quiet death. Its purpose was to take feminist memes and slogans, twist ’em, and toss them right back at the girls.

It was resurrected three days ago when the Jay-Z/Solange dustup went viral. And it REALLY exploded this afternoon. Last I checked—about fifteen minutes ago—there had been 270 new Tweets in the space of three minutes.

If avatars are to be trusted, nearly everyone Tweeting here is a black guy. And though packed with jokes, there’s a genuine frustration behind a lot of these one-liners, as there is behind all good comedy. This is one of the best examples of communal satire I’ve ever seen. This list is not called the 50 “Best,” because there will probably be 500 other great ones within the next hour.
