We already know that Rihanna and Anne Hathaway are in negotiations to join the cast of Oceans 8, an all-female reboot of Oceans 11. The news comes hot on the heels of the success of the all-female Ghostbusters reboot, and it begs the question: What if all movies were feminist?

Leave it to Twitter hashtag #FeministAMovie to sort out the answer.

The hashtag, which was trending Thursday, led to some humorous tweets.

But there were also many, many hateful ones.

It also reminded us that you can’t say “feminist” without people obsessing over female grooming habits.

Ugh, thanks trolls.At the very least, the hashtag also managed to deliver this truth-bomb.
