I read an article in vice over the weekend about some utter crank chick who's writing a manifesto on what she calls "femitheism" Some of you must have seen it? I propose an article! :) Lennybogart (talk) 07:18, 20 August 2014 (UTC)LennyBogart

I've run into Femitheism quite a bit arguing with MRAs, I'm fairly certain that a lot of what she does is trolling --Drowninginlimbo (talk) 13:19, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Which one is "femitheism"? Atheists who are feminists, or as in "Feminist theology"?-- Forerunner (talk) 14:34, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
A Duckduckgo search seems to suggest it's pretty much exclusively used as a snarl word, without concern for such mundane things as a definition.— Unsigned, by: Ikanreed / talk / contribs 15:30, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
It's not anything to do with feminism, she makes a point of this: --Drowninginlimbo (talk) 17:32, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Is it like when people from traditional monotheisms or "spiritual-but-not-religious" types try to seem tolerant/cool by referring to God as "She"? (Agrajag (talk) 17:49, 20 August 2014 (UTC))
The "She" stuff is for the sake of highlighting problems regarding people mistaking God's masculine attributes for Him being male (rather than 'He' being used because there's no other pronoun, or when a masculine attribute requires a masculine pronoun) instead of being an asexual being, and ignoring female attributes completely.-- Forerunner (talk) 18:48, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Note: "we are entirely disparate from feminism" seems like the deliberate malapropism of the troll :D . (Agrajag (talk) 17:51, 20 August 2014 (UTC))
We already have athbesity[1] so why not femitheism?--Mercian (talk) 18:18, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Must be a reference to the gypsy moth, Lymantria disparWikipedia. In that species the males are much smaller than the females, who have fully formed wings, but cannot fly, relying on powerful pheromones to bring the males to them. There's your MRA connection right there. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 18:45, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Femitheist Divine is pretty much your regular female supremacist with just a pinch of extra crazy flakes. Nothing special. |₹Λ¥$€₦₦ Red rose 02.svg THAT IS STILL LEGAL TENDER. I AM SANDWICH LAWYER. 18:56, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
I hadn't heard of the word, but my first thought was of Dianic Wicca. SophieWilderModerator 20:10, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
