There are many, many things that people have historically blamed on feminism: For instance, the collapse of the institution of marriage, or the prevalence of short, Felicity-style haircuts among college girls in the early aughts.
Writer and activist @BlackGirlDanger, however, has pinpointed the one phenomenon for which feminism is solely to blame: men’s smelly penises. She came up with the hashtag #IBlameFeminism as a way of skewering gross dudes who attribute their lack of a sex life to gender politics.

Targeted at anti-feminists and “men’s rights” types who moan about how quote-unquote feminism prevents them from getting laid, the hashtag has obviously resonated with @BlackGirlDanger’s followers, who have come up with their own variations on #IBlameFeminism:

Gentlemen: If, for whatever reason, you don’t find this hashtag hilarious, you know exactly what’s to blame.
