Are feminists annoying? Yes, according to the global Googling public.
When you type 'feminist' in to Google one of the most searched phrases is 'feminists are annoying.' Google automatically suggests this to you as a search term because it is so frequently typed in, which is bloody bleak.
Likewise, if you type in 'feminism is…' you are offered 'feminism is sexist' and 'feminism is stupid.'
Try 'feminists' and the World Wide Web thinks you’re probably looking for material that falls under the search term 'feminists should die.'
Have a go yourself.
