13 Feminists and a Light Bulb

This is just a joke I found on another site. I don’t remember who wrote it but whoever it was, thanks for the laugh and I hope you don’t mind me copying it here.

How many feminists does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Answer: 13.

One to screw it in the bulb.
One to blame men for inventing such a faulty means of illumination.One to suggest the whole “screwing in” is a bit too “rapey-like”.One to deconstruct the lightbulb itself as being an intimidating phallic symbol.
One to console anyone who feels “triggered” by the changing of the bulb.One to blame the patriarchy for discouraging women from changing light bulbs.One to blame men for creating a society where women need to change light bulbs.One to advocate that lightbulb changers should have wage parity with electricians.One to alert the media that women are now “out-lightbulbing” men.One to record the event for her blog as evidence that men are unnecessary.
One to make sure nobody says anything “inappropriate” during the changing of the bulb.
One to make sure everybody “feels empowered” by the changing of the bulb.
One to form a support group for survivors of darkness!
