The National Union of Students Women’s Conference is underway in the U.K., and they’ve got some interesting ideas on the table. For instance, there’s this motion to prohibit gay white men from appropriating the mannerisms and speech patterns of black women.

Cool, cool. What else we got? Anything that might apply to conduct at the conference itself?

Oh. Well, that’s a little unusual, but nothing that Twitter assholes would pounce on. Surely.

Look, people—you can attack feminist culture however you like, but ask yourself one question: If you were an alien visiting earth and found out that humans expressed group satisfaction by slapping their upper appendages together like a bunch of goons, would you be impressed?

Now let’s all sit silent and unmoving for the rest of the day.
