Major Feminist News Site Shuts Down, Admits Whole Thing Has Been a Joke

What happens when far-left feminism becomes so detached from reality, it’s impossible to tell if it’s satire?

That’s the question that one online “feminist” magazine is posing after its creator revealed that the entire project was a joke.

Medusa Magazine has received a significant amount of attention in recent weeks, mainly due to its “social justice” articles that appeared to parrot liberal talking points about gender and sexuality issues.

The website was cited by several major sources and sparked both outrage and agreement by commenters, but earlier this week the person behind Medusa confirmed that it was all satire.

“It has always been and will always be satire…. but I don’t blame anyone for thinking otherwise,” confirmed the owner of the site, who still has not revealed their real name.

“This has been fun, but all good things have to come to an end,” the creator continued. “I am shutting down this website because recent events have proven to us that it is no longer possible to satirize the Feminist left.”

The blogger, who also runs another popular site which mocks the news, explained that the plan was to “create a website to satirize the far left and the so-called ‘Social Justice Warriors’ who infect it.”

That satire succeeded… but the humorists behind Medusa Magazine quickly discovered that real, straight-laced feminists were creating content that was just as over the top and even more unhinged.

“About a week ago [….] we put out another article titled ‘Why we should believe women who accuse right wingers of rape more than those who accuse liberals,'” explained the creator.

“The article is a total caricature intended to be as ridiculous as possible, basically arguing that because liberals are good people, we should forgive them when they rape women,” they explained.

“We thought no one in the world could possibly hold views as ridiculous as that, so we wrote it as satire and published it.”

Then actual feminists began to say the same thing. Parody became a sick reality.

“So imagine our surprise when an actual Feminist and self-proclaimed expert on ‘rape culture’ wrote an article for The Washington Post no less, using the same rational and reasoning as our satirical article that was written just a few days before,” wrote the Medusa owner.

That Washington Post article was topped in absurdity when ABC News political analyst Matthew Dowd essentially argued that sexual harassment was less serious when liberals did it.

The creator of Medusa Magazine had seen enough.

“And that is why we are shutting down this website,” they explained.

“Because there is no point in operating a caricature website of Feminism anymore when real life Feminists are now more insane than any caricature we could ever dream up,” the publisher continued.

“If you enjoyed our content and are sad to see us go, then just go follow any legitimate Feminist blog or any of the many obnoxious Feminists on Twitter. Their content is the same as ours.”

lol they got me, i linked to a story from them, i forget the story now, it was pretty far fetched but isn't all this shit? Maybe one day the entire lamestream  media wil go haha "just jokin'"

Since humor and satire are key to fighting tyranny, this really doesn't bode well...

The once good thing that came of this was that Medusa Magazine served its purpose in awakening people.
